margolily heirloom bouquets

Monday, November 7th, 2011

Keren and I met in both sunshine and snow when designing these stunningly rich and decadent pieces based around a precious vintage butterfly brooch belonging to Keren’s family. Keren’s heirloom bouquet and buttonhole designs were gorgeous fun to work on, so much so that I took both bride and bridesmaid fabric shopping with me so we could find the perfect shades of ruby red and duck egg blue as well as create the groom’s stylish white leather and magpie feather buttonhole!  Feast on these glorious and happy wedding photos!

Keren had these lovely words to say of her margolily experience…

“Thank you so much again for taking so much care over our bouquets and buttonhole, they looked absolutely fantastic and I loved them! Woody was so pleased with his buttonhole, so much more his style than a flower and looked great against his suit.”

margolily plays shops

Monday, November 15th, 2010

Maybe working in the Sentry Box toy shop all those years ago or once upon a time trying to sell my wee brother pegs, or perhaps many Blue Peter Bring and Buy Sales set the scene for a margolily gal to like playing at shops! For this week truly has been a Mary Portas style shopping extravaganza! Headed though to Edinburgh to visit lovely Karina at Kakao by K. Alongside luxurious and exclusive clothing in Kakao you will find classic, Chanel inspired, vintage glamour margolily headpieces. At the moment Kakao are also stocking a real Hollywood starlet treat, black and gold flecked bow and netting headpiece, beautiful! Stopped off at Fabhatrix in the Grass Market, where amongst a treasure trove of hats and headpieces you will find margolily’s tartan and Scottish inspired pieces. In Glasgow margolily pops up at markets such as Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair, Supermercado at the Barras and Sloans. At the markets you get the perfect chance to have a gab with me as well as try on headpieces in every colour. Pieces available at the markets usually have a magpie treasure inspiration using lots of vintage brooches and jewellery in their designs. If you can make it margolily will be at Sloans this very Saturday 20th November 11-5pm


Brides and wedding guests find margolily in all kinds of places from wedding shows to magazines, from dress designers to friends. Wedding pieces are often made using remnants from bespoke dresses, pearls and sparkle. Margolily will happily attend hair trials and dress fittings to make what you want exactly yours.

Of course your margolily headpiece may come straight from your which case margolily will work with you to create something stunning! Check out the gallery too!

Ooh and you can find me on Folksy too for all manner of treats in any style you wish!

Margolily Says Thank You

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Margolily survival this week has depended on a rallying team of lovely, super people and grapefruits (they keep you awake at 3am when sewing!) Sausage sandwich provision, homemade cookies, lots of wine, team massage, pizza hut delivery, early morning text motivation and a boyfriend home from America! Yeeha! Thank you! With all that going on I managed to complete 3 bouquets, 4 buttonholes and 4 wrist corsages in a super fast week to the delight of a left in the lurch bride. Margolily is now known in some circles as a wedding fairy! Photos are underwraps for now so as surprises and squeals of happy are still in store for the big day this Saturday!

And here below is a peek at margolily’s piece being put together for the Scottish Wedding Directory. Thank you, gorgeous Paula!
