Hampshire Boutique – Margaux Mae Bridal

I had a lovely brunch recently with Andrea Dargon of Hampshire-based Margaux Mae Bridal. We chatted about all sorts; how the former PA found her way into the wedding industry through making cakes, her work as Hampshire Brand Ambassador for The Wedding Industry Supplier Network, and the journey that saw her realising her dream and launching her bridal boutique in August. We discussed how Andrea thinks Princess Margaret was the most iconic royal bride. ‘Strong and wild’ is how she describes her. It’s her love for this type of timeless, elegant dress that saw her carefully choosing the designers for…

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…

Dream Wedding Venue – The Boat Shed

Sometimes I think The Boat Shed project was all a dream. Did I dream about a unique waterside space filled with trestle tables, festoon lighting and flowers? It seemed so real; the taste of cold fizz, the servings of street food, the sound of the band rehearsing… Was my whole career a figment of my imagination? I think I might be going slightly mad. Is anyone else going slightly mad?   As it stands our first wedding is the end of June next year. It seems soooo long away but BRING IT ON. I’ve had my hair cut now, and…

Bridal FaceTime Shoot with Tim Dunk

If Covid affected your business, how did you handle it? Did you cry? Did you moan? Or did you engage your creative brain and think of ways to pivot/thrive? Until last year Leeds-based Tim Dunk was best known for his creative, alternative wedding photography. When it all hit the fan last year Tim came up with FaceTime photo shoots as a Covid-secure idea to get creative, lift people’s spirits and raise money for a food bank charity. I took part in a shoot with Tim right at the beginning of the first lockdown. I remember how out-of-sorts I was feeling…

Juxta-posy!

I ended up doing an impromptu creative photo shoot on my daily exercise last week! Here’s how it came about. When dreaming up ideas for blog content I thought about the FaceTime photo shoot I did with Tim Dunk waaaay back at the start of the first lockdown. I thought it would be a cool idea to see if we could do a bridal shoot via FaceTime. I contacted Tim and he was in! So then I had a quick think about who our model could be. It had to be someone with a suitable dress and accessories, and someone…
