Favourite colour

Purple. We both met with a mutual love of Purple, and that hasn’t changed in the years we’ve been together. We even have a purple fireplace in our home!

Favourite movie

Edward Scissorhands – at our wedding, Katie walked down the aisle to the Ice Dance 🙂

Favourite song

The Ice Dance from Edward Scissorhands – for our first anniversary, Katie commissioned the INCREDIBLE Leos Quartet to record a one-off arrangement of this for strings – let’s say it holds a rather special place in our hearts.

Favourite part of a wedding

We love wedding mornings! As a husband and wife team, we get to spend the whole morning with ‘our half’ of the wedding party, capturing the excitement, nerves and last minute emotional moments before the ceremony. We both love to see what the other has been up to when we meet up after the ceremony to shoot the rest of the day. We love all of a wedding day, but the morning preparation is where we can really start to create an authentic story personal to our couples, and is the foundation of the way we work to capture the rest of the day.

About you & your business

Hi, we’re Katie and James, a Husband and Wife wedding photography team from Lytham St Annes in Lancashire, and we travel all over the UK and internationally for our couples. We have a very relaxed and natural style, and having us both means we can shoot from two unique perspectives throughout the wedding day. We focus on the emotion, the connection between family and friends at a wedding, and our aim is to create an authentic visual story of the wedding day from beginning to end.

Favourite part of a wedding

Delivering the bridal flowers to the bride and seeing the reaction… so nice when we get happy tears with a big hug

Then also seeing the venue transformed with the chair covers and  room decoration… bringing couples ideas to life just makes all the hard work worth while.

About you & your business

I have been making wedding films for just over a year (with Abbey House being one of my first venues) and I’m still pinching myself that this counts as an actual “job”. Film has always been a passion of mine, and I absolutely love capturing people’s stories, knowing they will cherish these memories forever.

So hard to pick one favourite song as there are so many. The album I have on in the car at the moment is Blossoms, Charlemagne always makes me turn the volume up nice and loud.

Favourite part of a wedding

My favourite part of a wedding as a stylist is seeing everything come together on the day. I love to see the bride and grooms themes come to life and how the choice of our chair covers and sashes compliment their decor, favours, flowers, cake and wedding outfits.

About you & your business

Sitting Pretty was established in May 2015 by myself Marie Scott after taking over the business from a busy local florist. With over ten years experience in the creative industry I decided to take a bit of time out to spend with my family and through planning my own wedding the perfect opportunity arose to start Sitting Pretty. I have always loved all aspects of design and using my creative flair so am thrilled to help couples plan their perfect day.

dusky-silvers

Favourite colour

This changes regularly – at the moment it is “serenity” blue – one of pantone’s colours of 2016.
It’s actually the colour that inspired our Bluebell and Ivy brand.

Favourite movie

It has to be ‘Walk the line’ – a 2005 American movie based upon the early life and career of country singer jonny cash.
It’s fab – I love true stories!

Favourite song

This is a difficult one – I have always loved the spice girls ever since I was a little girl. – However I am absolutely mad about Michael BublÉ … so it will have to be one of his songs named ‘everything’.

Favourite part of a wedding

Meeting my brides and bringing their ideas to life is definitely my favourite part.
I really enjoy taking snippets of their imagination, combining them with my creative love for flowers and producing something extra special for them.
The thought of creating pieces so bespoke and different each and every time is what keeps my innovation alive.
The possibilities are endless!

About you & your business

My name is Lauren Hart – I am the owner and floral designer at Bluebell and Ivy.
I first entered the floristry world at the age of 14 as a Saturday girl for Deborah’s Florist on Ainslie Street, Barrow. Over time, Deborah and the girls who worked there trained me in every aspect of working with flowers, from teaching me all the technical elements of floral design to learning how to condition, prepare and understand flowers.
At 19 I started at Loughborough University where I gained my degree in textile design – This was an invaluable experience as I was taught to understand colour and texture combination along with how to watch and forecast trends – this is now a natural instinct of mine and I always apply this to all areas of my floristry work.
In my spare time, whilst I was down south, I gained a certificate in ‘advanced bridal’ floristry at the well-known Jane Packer School in London. This was when I realised that I really wanted to be back in a flower shop – and so I began planning the launch of Bluebell and Ivy.
