Hey hey hey! It’s flippin’ July already! Which means Margot’s Outdoor Extravaganza is happening in less than three weeks (gulp)…
The event is being held on Sunday 21st July at Thornton Woods in Titchfield, Hampshire – a very special secluded spot that’s available to hire for weddings via Kissing Gate Events. I was there on Saturday to help out at a wedding (which will soon feature on the blog). I’d been to the site a couple of times but it made all the difference seeing it in all its glory. The tables were set, the bar was open, the Pimms was ready… oh and it was the hottest day of the year so we were all rather sweaty (this was not meant to be a poem). Here are a few of my phone snaps. The beautiful flowers are by Bloom Bloom (you can meet Katrina on 21st and see her beautiful blooms IRL).
As you can see, the Kissing Gate set up includes a traditional pole marquee, bell tents, a converted horse box bar and horse box WCs. Their style is very ‘country’ and they offer bunting, mismatch vintage china and hay bales too. Our marvellous exhibitors will be showcasing their products and services inside and outside the marquee, the bar will be open, there’s live entertainment, food, workshops, kids activities, a sparkle bar (to get you in festival mode) and Segways to have a go on.
We’re conducting a live styled bridal shoot at the event (from 11am). I’m so excited to be working with Kerry from Teddy Pig Photography on this (because she’s amazeballs). The shoot offers visitors an exciting behind-the-scenes perspective of a professional editorial shoot. Our model will be ‘working it’ in full bridal attire…
Exhibitors you can expect to meet on the day:
Anna Pumer Photography, Caked Away, Black Diamond Weddings, Bloom Bloom, The Neigh Bar, Claire Bemister Photography, Martha Holli’s, Hannah Hair UK, Bus & Bug Vintage Weddings, Cat Creative, Blooming Cow Flowers, Ritz & Sass, Outside & Instant, Lavender Wedding & Event Supplies, Totally Flawless, The Daisy Cake Company, Bales 4 Events, Grey & Copper, Rachael Thompson Celebrant, Lizzy Bennie, Josephine Warren Singer.
The Prize: Free guestlist entry for your whole party. Includes a limited-edition canvas bag (for the bride only) filled with goodies including a copy of Margot’s Wedding special issue (worth £4.95). Plus free consultation with me if you need to pick my brains (about your wedding, but we can have a general chit chat if you so desire).
How to Enter: Email me with the subject line ‘my wedding’ and tell me about the element of your day you’re most excited about. Entries to be received by 5pm on Friday 12th July and winner will be chosen and notified on Wednesday 17th July.
Good luck! And if I love the sound of your wedding, maybe we can feature it in the mag/on the blog!
