The House of Love Illustration

Imagine how happy I was when Megan Metcalf AKA The House of Love Illustration contacted me at the beginning of the year and said she wanted to come and do some live drawings at my Boat Shed wedding fair. I love her work and was so touched she made the journey all the way from Margate. Above are drawings she did on the day featuring The Curated Kitchen‘s exhibition stand. I guess the inviting grazing table of different colours and textures was the ideal still life! The above drawings were also done on the day, featuring buoys within the alternative,…

Bell Tent Hire – Victoria Lily Events

Glamping companies have had a very different summer to the one they imagined this year! They thought they’d be pitching up at festivals, and having teams of staff working together to erect pop-up bell tent villages for weddings… Instead they’ve been popping up, a tent at a time, in peoples gardens, for lockdown social-distancing fun. It’s proved to be popular for alternative birthdays, anniversaries etc. Small businesses have had to diversify and Sussex-based Victoria Lily Events have made the most of a tricky situation. The luxury boho glamping company covers Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Essex, London and France. Bell Tents Their…

The Boat Shed – Kitsch & Nautical Styled Shoot

Way back in March, before the world ground to a halt, I organised a styled bridal shoot at The Boat Shed. I wanted an opportunity to get some awesome photos of the venue and I knew I could count of some of my fantastic contacts to collaborate… I wanted a pro on board when it came to the ‘look’ so I asked Sally Gallis, Events by Design if she’d like to lead on the concept and styling… and boy, did she do a good job! The theme was kitsch/nautical. The idea was fun, tongue-in-cheek, saucy sailor-boy kinda vibes. As you…

Updates from Margot’s HQ – Back to Work!

It’s the 1st of July! I’m moving home today after living with my sister for three months and I’m back in FULL work mode from tomorrow. I’m no longer Furloughed so bring it on! I thought today would be the perfect time for a reflective post, a look back on the last three months and a look ahead to the next three/six months. The last three months I’ve been Furloughed from the business since the end of March. All I’ve done is kept up with emails and blog posts (i.e. my statutory obligation as company director to ‘maintain the success…

Virtual Hen Weekend – The Nostalgia Show at Home

June 25, 2020 | Hen Party

It’s a last minute idea but if you’ve had to cancel hen party plans why not gather your gals for The Nostalgia Show at Home this weekend? One of the founders of The Nostalgia Show, Alex Cvijovic, also runs The Wonderous Wedding Fair, and we love her and her events. Co-founders Alex and Lucy decided to create the free virtual festival as they know how disappointing it was that this year’s festival had to be postponed. “The entertainment industry has been hit pretty hard by recent events” said Alex, “and so many artists are struggling at this time. We decided…

Country/Frida Kahlo Inspired Bridal Shoot

We’re in love with these images submitted by Toni of Cuttlebone Photography. The flowers are such statement pieces (especially the Frida Kahlo inspired crown!) and the white boots give a cool country vibe. Over to Toni to explain a bit more about the shoot… Brandon (Flowers 4) and I had worked together a few times on shoots and have been friends for years. For this styled session we wanted to create a country, rock and roll wedding with a side of Frida. A statement headpiece rather than the dainty norm and stunning bouquets filled with beautiful scented blooms and pampas…

Lucy & Harry’s Blooming Lovely Festival-style Wedding

The scent inside the marquee with all these flowers must have been incredible! Over to Lucy to tell us all about her wonderful, relaxed, colourful day… Our wedding theme was: colourful, rustic, festival, bohemian. In a countryside location. The most important thing to us when tying the knot was our little family feeling ‘oneness’. Marriage is a bond like no other and it’s made us stronger and closer as a family. For ourselves and the kids to all share the same surname. Unconditional love. We always knew we wanted a ‘field’ wedding and that’s exactly what we had. Harry’s family…
