Lucy's Glitter Box Blog...
Right, here goes…
This is my blog where I plan to share with you all the things I’ve been up to, amazing venues in Essex and surrounding counties I’ve come across, stories from fabulous weddings, all sorts of behind the scenes stuff and funny stories!
P.s. I know I overuse ‘!’ I just get very excited!!
April/ May 2023
Our first wedding of the year was for the fabulous Lou and Matt! Their venue, The Old Hall Ely, is such a stunning place - just wow! Their space for the photo booth and glitter bar was sooooo lovely and their guests were brilliant fun, there were many men rocking glitter beards and Lou looked absolutely beautiful, not forgetting to mention that they were the nicest, most laid back couple! Massive congratulations!!
We then had another gorgeous wedding at Copdock Hall in Suffolk for the wonderful Mr and Mrs Parker. Now this bride and groom had a rowdy bunch of guests, playing cricket in the courtyard and dancing all night long, they were all so much fun and great entertainment to watch in the photo booth too. Lydia looked absolutely stunning and again another super relaxed couple, no bridezillas this month - phew ;) p.s. I met Molly @m_t_events this night, she is a fabulous wedding planner - highly recommend!
In May we attended Combat 2 Coffee’s Charity night, providing glitter and photos at Belstead Brook Hotel, a lovely venue, with lots of steps when setting up the photo booth – my calves were burning (I really must get myself back in the gym)! This was a brilliant night organised by @djlee_jentertainments , thank you so much for having us.
We had our first ever styled shoot at Great Betley House in Henfield, now this was a bit of a drive from Essex BUT so worth it. We met so many lovely suppliers, the venue was gorgeous and the photos turned out a-ma-zinggggg - I've attached some to the bottom of this blog.
We have been a part of some lovely wedding fair open days, one with @eventsundercanvastipis in Suffolk, so many amazing tipi set ups and lovely couples trying out the horse box photo booth. Then another fabulous open day at Down Hall in Essex. Down Hall is so luxurious, I was actually pretty speechless when I visited the venue for the first time, it is stunning.
Lastly, we kicked off festival season locally at Festival in the Garden in Essex, Braintree and Bocking Public Gardens -literally 10 minutes down the road from us. This was such a lovely weekend with some amazing music (Missing Andy's last ever gig!!), as well as tasty food - @itistimetothai was our favourite meal of the weekend! I can’t tell you how many children went home with glitter tattoos and how many faces were covered in sparkle – it was a lot!
That's all for now.
