Updates from Margot’s HQ

Hi guys! Sorry for radio silence on the blog this week. I had a lovely real wedding lined up for Tuesday but I’ve been having some problems uploading the images. It’s all being sorted now, thank goodness for my brilliant developers. I thought I’d write a general post about what’s what here at Margot’s HQ i.e. what’s been happening, what’s coming next and what’s in store as we look forward to 2020. This week we’re finalising issue 16 and it’s due out on Monday. We’ve been collating adverts and editorial over the last few months and Jo (marvellous Jo from…

The Wonderous Wedding Fair – Portsmouth – 2019

It’s that time again! The Wonderous Wedding Fair has been popping up at the Portsmouth Pyramids (wow, what a tongue twister) since 2016. It’s organised by The Vintage Parade and I’ll be there helping out… it’s always a great day full of friendly faces, cool couples and creative inspiration. The wedding fair is held in the large exhibition space at The Pyramids Centre in Southsea, Portsmouth. It’s a huge blank canvas space allowing up to 40 exhibitors within the world of weddings to strut their stuff. Expect an fun-packed creative event with unique exhibitors, live entertainment, workshops, lively fashion shows…

Electric Romance Shoot

Who’s got that back-to-school feeling? Parents all over the land shoot their hands up! My son doesn’t start school until next year so he’s been in nursery as usual all over the holidays. This time next year we’ll be knee deep in uniform, pencil cases and proud front door photos… what the hell am I going to do with him in the holidays?! The end of the summer has a unique feeling I think, and boy what a summer it’s been! June wasn’t crazy for me but come July I had my Hampshire wedding fair with Kissing Gate Events so…

Updates from Margot’s HQ

I am SO sorry for radio silence on the blog recently. I went camping at the beginning of the month and broke my toes, then when I got back I was mega busy trying to finish issue 15 before I went to France for my best friend’s wedding. I got back on Sunday and have been trying to sort my life out in the presence of my three-year-old son. He’s gone back to nursery today so I’m back at my desk… I think I left part of my brain in France though. Later in the week/early next week (when the…

Our Outdoor Wedding Fair & Live Styled Shoot

Hola! Our outdoor wedding fair with Kissing Gate Events is done and dusted… and it didn’t rain, hurrah! I’ve spent the last two days in paddling pools with my son trying not to melt. He’s gone back to nursery today so I can finally catch up with myself and conduct a full event de-brief. The fair (Margot’s Outdoor Extravaganza) was a collaborative project between Margot’s Wedding and Kissing Gate Events. An opportunity to showcase everything Kissing Gate has to offer; beautiful land venues, traditional pole marquee, bell tents, delicious food, horse box bar and horse box toilets. My job was…

All the Fun of the Fair – Traditional Carousel Hire

I feel like I’ve seen it all when it comes to weddings. Trends come and go and what’s hot this summer might be old news next year… but some things are here to stay. I’m thinking ice cream vans, photo booths, hog roasts… and yup you guessed it – carousels. Today our ‘supplier spotlight’ is on family-run business Eddy Leisure who offer carousel hire, as well as other fairground rides and equipment throughout the UK. There’s just something so cool about the patterns and colours on carousels isn’t there? The classic reds and golds, traditional lettering and fairground lighting. And…

Hey hey hey! It’s flippin’ July already! Which means Margot’s Outdoor Extravaganza is happening in less than three weeks (gulp)… The event is being held on Sunday 21st July at Thornton Woods in Titchfield, Hampshire – a very special secluded spot that’s available to hire for weddings via Kissing Gate Events. I was there on Saturday to help out at a wedding (which will soon feature on the blog). I’d been to the site a couple of times but it made all the difference seeing it in all its glory. The tables were set, the bar was open, the Pimms…
