Book a Treatment and Wedding Consultation at Margot’s!

Would you like to come round and have a deeply relaxing hour-long energy treatment while talking all about your wedding? As well as my wedding duties I now offer a holistic treatment called Access Bars. Since I trained last month I have done countless treatments and met people from all walks of life. Some like to stay silent throughout the treatment, but some talk throughout and I’ve found the dynamic of a chat in that relaxed environment very powerful. Almost like an informal therapy session!.. For both of us! I have decided to offer the treatment combined with a wedding…

Would you rent your wedding dress?

  How to save money on the most expensive outfit you’ll only wear once… Your big day can be one of the most expensive events you’ll ever throw in your life, especially with UK couples spending on average an eye-watering £27,000 on their nuptials. This has prompted a new wave of savvy brides on a budget to look at renting their wedding dresses, instead of forking out on a frock they will wear only once. UK waste prevention company BusinessWaste.co.uk found that after speaking to 2100 brides to be, 4 out of 10 brides would be willing to hire a…

From Honeymoons and Hairstyles to Home Help and Holistic Therapy…

July 21, 2021 | News, Updates from HQ, Wedding Fair

Like many of us the last 18 months has changed me. I honestly feel like a different person. I’m in a different place physically, mentally and emotionally. Do you relate? The wedding industry was one of the hardest hit as a result of the Covid pandemic. I had to cancel five wedding fairs, my weddings at the boat shed got postponed and cancelled, and I Furloughed myself. Last year I lived at my sister’s house for months, bought a paddle board, started putting my #sobercurious thoughts into action and moved house in November. Moving into this house was the security…

Weddings & Booze – Observations through a sober lens

I wanted to write a post about weddings and booze because, after years of party girl behaviour, I’ve just celebrated six months sober. Go me! It was my 40th at the end of 2019 and I decided I wanted to attempt a year (2020) off booze (little did I know what was around the corner!) I just never had an off switch. I could never moderate and after one or two drinks I wanted more more MORE. Hangovers were getting harder and the constant boozing wasn’t helping my anxiety (I used to call it hanxiety). I just couldn’t shake the…

My Trip to Wasing Park

June 24, 2021 | Berkshire Wedding, Wedding Venue

I must be doing something right because the good people of Wasing Park in Berkshire invited me to their recent press event. What with Covid shenanigans it had to be postponed but it finally happened last weekend… and what a treat it was. Wasing Park is an estate steeped in family history, that dates back to 1759. The fact you pass through grazing cattle and vast land between entering the grounds and arriving in the car park, gives you an idea of the size of the estate! On arrival we were greeted on the terrace with drinks and a light,…

Country Garden Styling with Bell & Bell Events

Bell & Bell Events is run by sister duo Jen and Sue. I spoke to them about their hire collection, their unique aesthetic and how they’ve kept busy during the pandemic… When Sue was planning her wedding back in 2018, she and her husband were set on creating a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. They wanted an intimate, country-style wedding with a bit of fun. Their wedding was at Cissbury Barns which, at the time, was still being converted from an old sheep barn. “A little bit of spit and sawdust was what we saw and fell in love with” says Sue. They…

Q&A with Christina from Rock the Dancefloor

I fell for Rock the Dancefloor when I saw their fun retro bridal shoot at Bobby’s in London. We all know I have a weakness for anything retro and iconic and this really got me feeling all the feels. I felt (from obsessively studying her Instagram page) that founder/creative director Christina must be a girl after my own heart, so I wanted to grill her and feature her on the blog. You’re welcome!.. Q. Hi Christina! Can you start by telling us what your vision is for Rock the Dancefloor please? i.e. what services you offer. A. Rock the Dancefloor…

Supplier Spotlight – Bombshell HQ

I’m thrilled to feature Bombshell HQ today. I’ve spent quite some time sipping coffee and deciding on my favourite dresses from their collection to share with you. It’s got me feeling all fancy I have to say! You will see their designs are all timeless and ageless so they’re great investments pieces. I think they work equally well for bridesmaids, guests and mother-of-the-bride/groom. The designer behind Bombshell is Katya Wildman. She was a costume designer for television, so when she couldn’t find a dress suitable for her curves, she designed one… and so Bombshell HQ was born! “I wanted to…
