Here’s the thing, I know there are many, many remarkably  awesome wedding suppliers out there, new and established, BUT, because we are tiny, weeny and unable to advertise on HUGE billboards with fireworks you might not have heard about how awesome we are. That makes me SAD! We have not one, not two, not three, NO, we have 4 unique and fabulous events that you can expose your skills and wares to the most fantastic quirky, enthusiastic, fun loving and friendly...

x Every time an invite has landed on my door mat I put a date in the diary to either do my research for the perfect dress or to start making one. And every time I get to the same stage, always a week away from the event and I think ‘oh plenty of time I haven’t stumbled across one so I’ll make one.’ I prepare myself, look through endless fabrics, trims, fastenings and images of what I plan to make...

I know it sounds really cheesy to say “I’ve dreamed of making beautiful dresses since I was a little girl”, but its the truth. I’ve always loved period dramas and the romance of weddings. I studied costume at university and when I graduated I was lucky enough to land a job on Prince of Persia. It was amazing, I loved the work, and I was learning so many new skills. I was so excited when I saw it on the...

When you’re looking for somewhere to get married there’s something amazing and magical about knowing about its history. As we are running The Showstopper Wedding Fair for Worthing Pavilion Theatre in November I wanted to know more about what this place has been through and I am so glad I asked, it’s truly fascinating… The original Pier Pavilion, as it was known, was replaced eighty-three years ago by the majestic building you see now, dominating Worthing seaside. The first building had...

My choice for this week is invitations, but not just any old invitation this is the precious kind that comes in the form of pretty florals, sealed with a kiss and tied in a delicate bow. These are the little cards of joy addressed to some of those most treasured by you, the ones that know all your secrets including your creepy crush on Alan Titchmarsh, I know, what?!? The ones that stand with you in some sort of feminist...

I don’t know about you but I find buying gifts really exciting but also equally stressful at times; finding something unique and personal is a lot to ask for particularly when things are made so quickly and various copies of it are all over the high street and internet. That aside I’ve got a friends wedding next month and I need to start looking before time runs away from me. The bride and groom in question have lived together almost...

Boudoir photography. It makes some people shrink like a violet and others put their chin up like a sunflower seeking the bright light of the sun. As a boudoir photographer I have talked to a lot of women about their own ideas and feelings about the genre and found that there are quite a few misconceptions. I’m here to set the record straight (well not universally but from my perspective at least). The word boudoir originally referred to a suite...

Welcome to the first ever ‘Sophie’s Choice’ blog post. Every week we’ll be hearing from Sophie about what she is loving right now. For those of you who are thinking, ‘who?’ check out this previous post ‘Introducing my ‘Wing Woman’ super star, Sophie…‘ Over to you lovely lady… So as this is my first ‘Sophie’s Choice’ post I felt it only right to include what’s going on in my world. As of next week I am moving out of my family home and...

“I love you because you are EXACTLY like everyone else,” is not a marriage proposal to set the heart beating faster. We love each other our uniqueness and quirks and, as such, traditional wedding receptions involving crisp white tablecloths, salmon for starters and a three-tier white cake aren’t for everyone. More and more couples are crying out for new ideas, venues and suppliers who ‘think outside the box’. Whilst I was planning my wedding this time ten years ago, I went...

I was so excited to be going to The Blogcademy in London’s Curtain Road Studios last week, I can’t believe it’s over. #weepintomytea The venue was stunning as were all three ‘Head Mistresses’,  just how I imagined it. As knowing someone on a course always helps the nerves I was thrilled to see two awesome ladies that have exhibited at my events in the past, the divinely talented Brightonion, Ellen of B Millinery and cute as a button Stephie Hoyle, London Make-Up...
