Margolily loves Michelle

Monday, September 19th, 2011

Michelle  is a runner, a fabulous friend and a gorgeous and talented woman…but she is not a shopper! Thank goodness she had Margolily as her right hand lady available for all bridal shopping expeditions, Prosecco related celebrations and headpiece designer for all the family! (We won’t draw attention to the nightmarish day spent searching for shoes!) 

Margolily went on a glorious hunt for vintage gold jewellery, securing two gorgeous art deco brooches to incorporate into Michelle’s pin curls by lovely hair and make up artist, Aileen. Michelle’s stunning, original 1930′s wedding gown was discovered at wonderful Dragonfly Dress Design.

The wedding and reception were as happy as can be, perfectly the way both Michelle and James wished it and meeting all the Shetlanders and Londoners too was an extra treat! 

Margolily and Family

The moment sister-in law, Hannah, and her Charlie announced their wedding Margolily hoped for some extra special and sparkley extravagance! Margolily tucked a new idea under her hat and took to decorating the tasty, boozy wedding cake in dusky pink silk roses, crystals, pearls and love hearts!

Margolily also dusted some 1950′s rhinestone sparkle and pearls in Hannah’s hair glimpsed in this gorgeous, happy photo …

 Not forgetting the fascinators for Hannah’s mum and aunties, Margolily decorated each of the Rose sisters too!

Oh love and happy days xx

margoily nesting and high praise

Monday, September 5th, 2011
Step into the soporific world of Margolily…I found a moth asleep in my fabric box and am surrounded by a cloud of lavender as I chase them into hibernating some place other! This might be margolily nesting! The Scottish Cashmere Society suggests a potion of orange peel, thyme, rosemary, lavender and cedar to keep moths at bay…so I’ve been mass producing these little bags made with remnants of curtains and clothes and tucking them into every drawer and box I own!

Also look at these gorgeous photos of Jenny attending a summer wedding in her stunning outfit and Margolily headpiece! Love love love her stylish colour blocking!


Jenny found Margolily at Kakao by K and had these fabulous happy words to say of her Margolily experience…

“I couldn’t believe how easy it was to get my piece made, especially considering I didn’t have much time at all and was on holiday for a week while it was being made. I wasn’t sure if what I was dreaming of was actually possible.  I really liked the fact I could send you pictures of my dress, that helped with explaining colours and style. I absolutely loved my piece and loved wearing it.  It was absolutley exactly what I wanted and I am glad I took your advice and went for the neutral colours, it was without a doubt the best choice.  I thought it was really good value for money especially considering I got to pick exactly how I wanted it – and the brooch and beautiful materials and how quickly you made it. Everyone commented on it and I felt it just added something a little extra and unique to my outfit.”

Wow! Thank you Jenny!
