Glam Rock Shoot at Southend Barns

Today we hand over to stylists To Have & To Hire and venue, Southend Barns, to tell us all about this bold, edgy styled shoot… What else is one to do when wanting to add a little sparkle and spice to their wedding? Why Glam Rock, of course. Glam Rock is a style of rock music that started in the United Kingdom in the early 70s. Glam Rock musicians often adorned – what was classified then as ‘outrageous’ outfits, hairstyles, and makeup. Some remnants that may pop to mind are platform shoes and glitter. For this styled shoot we wanted…

Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside…

Goodness me, what a busy few days I’ve had! Saturday was spent doing last minute prep for Sunday’s wedding fair at The Worthing Dome; buying donuts, printing stuff, packing the car, fiddling about with pegboard signage etc! The next day my eyes pinged open at 5.45am, 15 minutes before my alarm, and it was all systems go to get myself in gear and over to Worthing for set up. And what a lovely day we had! It was the fourth fair we’ve hosted at the venue and it was officially our busiest yet. We love working with the guys at…

Margot’s Wedding are managing weddings at brand new Hampshire wedding venue, The Boat Shed @ Salt. Our exciting launch wedding fair is taking place on 8th March where they’ll be plenty of unique inspiration from talented local suppliers. In the meantime here are some ideas we love… Pie & Mash A couple who recently viewed for an October wedding wanted pie and mash from local independent record store/pie restaurant Pie & Vinyl. We thought that was an ace idea for cosy autumn vibes. They even do cana-pies (see what they did there?) as mini morsels to accompany reception drinks. We…

The Notebook Styled Shoot @ Gins Barn

At the moment, with everything I’m doing with The Boat Shed, I’m drawn to anything coastal and nautical… so when Tasha Mae contacted me with this styled shoot I jumped at the chance to feature it. I just love the arty, elegant interior of Gins Barn. It’s so inviting with its high beamed ceilings, muted colour palate and faded grandeur. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the amazing flowers with the oars (I think we’ll be borrowing that idea for The Boat Shed!) and can we take a minute to appreciate the chickens who put in an appearance please? It’s always really…

Boat Shed Bride-to-Be!

Today we hear from popular singer Miss Amy Baker as she and fiance Sam prepare to tie the knot at The Boat Shed… over to Amy: Sam surprised me with a trip to London. I had no idea where we were going but when he took a rucksack out for the day (he hates carrying anything) and then suggested a visit to a park (rather than a pub) I knew something was up! We took a leisurely walk around Regents Park and then hired a pedalo. Sam climbed onto the back of the boat and wobbled down onto one knee….
