Margolily at Loch Lomond

Monday, August 29th, 2011

Margolily friends were the stars of lots of weddings this Summer! For a bright splash of sunshine and wow here are some photos of lovely and very dear Cate in her margolily headpiece attending a gorgeous wedding at Loch Lomond!

This headpiece was designed in collaboration with Cate and her fashion show of possible outfits! Natural hackle and coque feathers were combined with silky cerise flowers and beaded stamen which margolily mum picked up on her travels in Malaysia!

Thank goodness for dear and wonderful paparazzi Gemma who snapped these photos! These girls have been my pals since long ago school days and Elaine is the first of us to be married! It was an extra special Margolily delight to design and make her headpiece for her glorious and happy marriage to Mike. This piece was made with couture like Margolily skills, hand sewing oceans of silver sparkles on to a silk organza base designed to echo the details in Elaine’s beautiful dress!

Here too is me beaming and posing in my own Margolily treat which I happily spray painted red to clash with the splashes of leopard print I decided my frock needed!

Yeeha for my girlfriends and not even a long vodka in sight!


a vintage wedding for margolily

Margolily is stunned by these gorgeous photos of Sally, pictured here with her  lovely family! Sally is wearing an ivory feather headpiece with divine vintage details including her own precious blue earrings surrounded by margolily sparkle! This headpiece is extra special, being made in two parts so Sally could easily remove her bird cage veiling for the evening and dancing ahead!


Sally also had these lovely words to say about her margolily experience… “Thanks again for the great job you did on my headpiece – I loved wearing it on the day, and all the guests (well the females at least!) were full of compliments about it. It was so unusual, and helped make me feel like a really unique bride! The experience for me was extremely smooth, and the results exceeded my expectations, and I would certainly hope to use you again – just need an invite to a suitable occasion!”
