Issue 12 and future plans…

September 11, 2018 | News

Hello! Issue 12 is officially OUT! I distributed close to 1000 copies at wedding fairs at the weekend and I have a diary of events (within Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey) to get to over the next couple of months and after Christmas. You can read the issue online by clicking here. As always I would love love love your feedback, whether you’re a bride planning your wedding or a supplier who’d like to get involved in future issues. It makes me so happy looking at issues 11 and 12 side by side. I think they really sum up brand ‘Margot’,…

Styled Wedding Bridal Shoot

Arty & Elegant Styled Shoot

September 8, 2018 | News

Way back in May myself and a group of talented wedding suppliers descended upon the newly opened Balcombe Place and put together a very special styled bridal shoot. Jessica Milberg and I came up with the theme (Jessica was our photographer). We wanted an intellectual, arty, bohemian vibe and our mood board had nods to William Morris and the Charleston set. We were conscious the overall look needed to indicate true bohemian style as opposed to trendy boho style. Everyone worked so hard and I’m thrilled we achieved the elegant, aloof look we were going for… it’s very ‘Margot’! Take…

My Favourite Kinds of Wedding Photography

September 1, 2018 | News

There are SO many wedding photographers out there. If you’re currently looking for a photographer your head might be in a spin! Good wedding photographers will have their own unique and definitive style so it’s really all about finding one whose style matches your personalities and your event. I believe it’s a combination of three things ~ their style, their technical ability and their creative eye… so lets break these down: Style – below are three categories I’ve chosen (there are others such as fine art/beauty/luxury, alternative/way out/offbeat but these are my favoured styles) and examples of photography and photographers:…

Raw & Romantic Styled Bridal Shoot

August 27, 2018 | News

We’ve now released our cover for issue 12! What do you think? I’m in love with it… The cover usually gets left until last and I sit for hours and hours trawling Instagram looking for the perfect image. Since our rebrand and name change I’ve decided I’ll just be using an image of a bride on the cover. i.e. rather than a couple. My only criteria is that she looks like a Margot! This image sums up what ‘being Margot’ is all about; cool, confident, stylish, arty. The image is from a shoot organised by Louise from One Stylish Day…

Bridal hair make up

Get the Look 

August 22, 2018 | News

Taken from our current issue we find out how this striking bridal look was created… Hair: “I wanted to create something edgy and elegant whilst keeping the clean lines of the Nordic style. I braided three sections of hair into delicate fishtail plaits and placed them around the top of the head, incorporating the beautiful flowers each step at a time until I had the finished piece. When creating a style such as this one, a lot of it is about the bride’s face shape, the colours of their hair and the placement of their features” – Lou  Make Up: “The style of the overall look is modern and contemporary but…

Margot & Me

August 18, 2018 | News

We changed over from Doily Days to Margot’s Wedding at the beginning of this year and I didn’t really anticipate how long it would take me to find my feet with the new brand. I thought we’d just change the name and carry on as we were. The whole point of the name change was to keep up with what we were already doing… but things have organically changed. It’s almost like I met Margot at the beginning of the year and I’ve been slowly getting to know her and figuring out what makes her tick. And guess what? We’ve…

Wedding Venues

Glasshouse & Orangeries 

August 16, 2018 | News

Today we’re pleased to bring you a feature written by Emma Hla founder of the fabulous Coco Wedding Venues. The piece is extracted from issue 11. Who doesn’t love a good Orangery? Couples are crushing hard on this type of venue right now along with glass houses and clear marquees. With the botanical trend having firmly taken root, I don’t see this style choice going anywhere. There really is no denying the WOW-factor that comes with this kind of venue and having seen the ‘Pippa effect’ go beyond the Giles Deacon dress (thanks to the incredible glass marquee which held the reception party) it’s an accessible yet stylish venue…
