boho weddings blog feature: a custom made botanical wedding scarf

I am so excited that I can finally reveal the secret project I worked on a few months ago. My customised wedding scarf has been featured on the Boho Weddings website, and you can read the blog post, linked at the bottom of this post.

Like every scarf I make, this one is hand painted and the text is done by hand too, in gold paint. Click through the images and you’ll see the process behind the wearable art. The brief I was given by London Local Weddings for the photo shoot was ‘Botanical Industrial Wedding’ and the scarf features leaves in a deep green with metallic text, in keeping with their theme. For more details of this particular scarf, click here.

If you would like a custom scarf for your wedding, birthday, christening or any other special occasion, just email me or fill in this form and I’ll come up with a unique design just for you.

summer style: navy blue for ladies day at ascot races

Ladies Day at Ascot is a day for extravagant hats and formal dress. Taking inspiration from the blue skies we hope to be blessed with on the day, here’s an outfit idea for that most special of outings. This could also be worn to a wedding as a guest or even by the mother of the bride (or groom).

upcoming event: christmas fair at sutton house, homerton, hackney

My last market of the 2016 festive season is this weekend!

I (and several other wonderful makers) will be at the National Trust’s Christmas at Sutton House in Hackney on Saturday the 17th as well as Sunday the 18th of December.

The event has been listed in Time Out and The Guardian as must-dos for this weekend.

Sutton House and Breaker’s Yard is a listed Tudor building in which each room has been decorated in pantomime themes along with live actors, mulled wine, food stalls, and a huge Christmas tree.

You will find me upstairs on the first floor in the Great Chamber, which has a storyteller for the kiddies and a Christmas tree. It is decorated in a Wizard of Oz theme if you would like to dress up!

Please use the 2-for-1 voucher at the top of this post – you can either print this out, or just show the image on your phone at the door of Sutton House. Scroll down for directions.

how I made a bespoke silk scarf for a special birthday

Custom orders are my favourite scarves to make – they’re a challenge, but a welcome one. Making a customer’s dream come to life is supremely satisfying. I shared the process of making one such scarf in a guest blog post for the London Local Team, and you can read the full article at the London Local Team blog.
