Sarah & Tom’s Relaxed Waterside Wedding in Itchenor, West Sussex

Sarah & Tom’s wedding plans were scuppered by Covid so by the time they had their reception it was all about friends and family gathering, and the P.A.R.T.Y. Jason Williams has captured the love and laughter perfectly in his signature photography style. Q. What was the theme/style for your big day? A. We knew we wanted a venue that was by the sea/water, as we both love spending our spare time at the beach or in the sea. We also wanted a fairly laid-back wedding, and really wanted a party to celebrate with our friends and family. There wasn’t a…

The Mother of all Weddings at Wilderness Festival

The Mother of all Weddings was held at Wilderness festival last summer. It was a very special gathering and today we have an interview with organiser Stephanie Pollard from Sunday Assembly. Q. Can you tell us about Sunday Assembly? A. Sunday Assembly is a global network of secular communities that celebrate life following the motto “Live Better, Help Often, Wonder More”.

Elegant and Sunny Italian Shoot among the Vines

There have been plenty of cancelled travel plans in recent months. Oh to share al fresco feasts under the warm sun… *sigh*. When this vibrant Italian shoot popped into my inbox I knew I had to share for some upbeat sunny bridal inspiration. Over to Adele, AKA Joli Reve, to tell you all about it… We are fortunate enough to live in a land rich with ancient buildings, with their own soul. Our vision is always modern, folk, boho and free-spirited… The venue was a wonderful castle located in the green heart of Italy, its elegant cellar and native vineyard…

Margot’s 70s Dessert Trolley

I didn’t feel well at the weekend so I spent plenty of time cocooned in a blanket on the sofa. Usually when I’m in this type of hibernation mode I go down an Instagram inspiration rabbit hole. Things I love: fun, parties, food, colour, nostalgia, theatre, quirk. What did I find that ticked all these boxes and got me excited? Retro desserts. Why oh why don’t we still have dessert trolleys like back in the seventies? Well, let me tell you guys, we can. I’m bringing it back for weddings. Big trifles to dig into, black forest gateaus, pineapple upside…

Margot’s Party

Happy New Year! I’m definitely easing myself back in gently… I’m feeling rather fragile. I’ve caught up with my emails and I’m scheduling some blog posts but I won’t be back with full force until next week! Christmas is hectic isn’t it? I think it’s too much. Who do we talk to about toning it down? My December also involves my son’s birthday and my birthday so I get an extra amount of overwhelm! It’s been a brilliant one but my word I’m glad to be getting back to normal. Next week you can expect more news of our next…
