Q&A with Phoebe Mulrooney of PHOHM

PHOHM is about creating moments of joy in real spaces. Phoebe Mulrooney creates unique and vibrant installations using artificial flowers and foliage… Q.

Today we’re pleased to feature new Chichester-based florist Hedge Rose. They’ve just joined our online directory and we’ve visited their gorgeous new shop in Chichester. So, what happens when a florist gets married?

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…

The tables were set, the bar was open, the Pimms…

Eco Wedding

Foraged Flowers and Local Feasts…

Weddings are large, expensive events so it’s a great idea to be mindful when it comes to minimising your carbon footprint. Today, Becky from The Garden Chef tells us about a recent shoot she collaborated on with some local florists. Over to Becky… A big part of our ethos is to have great respect for the food we create; how we create it and what we create it from. One of our concerns is the cost and waste related to weddings so we wanted to look at ideas to minimise this. We wanted the shoot to be eco-friendly and sustainable….
