A Humble Covid-tastic Village Hall Wedding

Megan and Stuart from Worthing got married on 25th July this year… and I was supposed to go to their wedding damn it! In fact, not only was I a guest, I’d volunteered to provide 80 retro desserts for the reception. Margot’s Dessert Trolley. Trifle anyone? Obviously the whole world turned upside down and Megan and Stuart’s party were spared my attempts at Black Forrest Gateaux. I asked them some questions about their crazy journey to become man and wife. Q. When did you get engaged? And when did you start planning your wedding? A. We got engaged in November…

Q&A with Sussex-based Wedding Photographer Elisa Photo

Our advertiser Elisa Photo has a unique edgy style which we love. We caught up with her to find out what makes her tick, and what she gets up to when she’s not shooting weddings… Q. Hi Elisa! Firstly, can you tell us how you describe your photography style?          A. I would say my style is creative, relaxed and fun but with an edge. Hiya. It’s me, Elisa. That’s Lisa, with an ‘E’ at the front, rather than Eliza, Alicia, Elise or Elsa: while those are all nice names, they’re just not mine. Q. What’s your…

Dutch Masters-themed Bridal Shoot @ Fabrica, Brighton

This unique and dramatic styled shoot was curated by Alex Cvijovic from The Wonderous Wedding Fair. Her vision for the shoot was to juxtapose the vibrancy of Dutch Golden age paintings with vintage florals. The palette was a combination of rich sultry colours with pops of blue and gold. The Venue Fabrica in Brighton is a former Regency church in the heart of the city. It boasts impressive stained glass windows, high ceilings, and a traditional overhead balcony. Now a contemporary art gallery, the venue allows a number of exclusive ceremonies to be held every year. Alex was looking for…

Not Just Bell Tents!

Our advertiser, East-Sussex-based Rent Event, owns an Aladdin’s Cave of hire items, from garden games to furniture, props, decor and photo booths. But if you glance at their Instagram feed you’d be mistaken for thinking they’re a bell tent hire company! That’s because as events have been cancelled left right and centre this summer because of Covid, bell tents have been utilised in people’s gardens for kids parties, hen dos, anniversaries etc. These images say it all really. We love the different interiors they offer – Moroccan-style chairs, tables and lanterns. Boho-style dream catchers and feather bunting. Pop-up hotel rooms…

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…

Sam & Rob’s Relaxed Vegan Wedding

Q. What was the theme/style for your big day? A. Botanical. The theme was emphasised through our reception as this is where we spent most of the celebration. Q. What was most important to you when it came to tying the knot/celebrating your marriage? A. When we first decided to get married I said to Rob “I have two things, 1) we get married at the Brighton Bandstand, and 2) We have a dessert table and not just a cake” Rob turned and said “OK, but I want the food to be vegan.” For us, it was about being able…

Wedding Industry Personal Branding Event

Back in February (when I still had a brain), I hosted a personal branding networking event with my good friends at Wagner Hall in Brighton. My favourite small businesses are the ones where the owner’s personality shines through and I’m always interested to get to know the person behind the brand… which is why I do ‘supplier spotlight’ and Q&As with wedding suppliers on the blog. I want to know who they are, how they live, what inspires them. I want to know about their background, how they got started, what future plans they’ve got. Am I just plain nosey?…

Lets Talk Wedding Bell Tents…

Great British Bell Tents offer bell tent hire in Sussex, Surrey and surrounding counties. We caught up with director Kieran to find out a little more about the business… Q. How long have you been running GBBT? A. This was meant to be the start of our fourth season but obviously due to the current situation this has been put on pause.  However, we are still hopeful we can still set up some bell tents for a few weddings and festivals towards the latter part of the season. Q. What’s your background and how did the idea for the business…
