We confess; our blog has taken a back seat because we are super-busy. So thank you to all of our loyal readers who are still with us! We will be back with more inspirational wedding finds, beautiful quotes, and pretty things very soon- in the meantime here is a little House of Istria update.
Firstly, a wedding fayre at Cheltenham Regency Hotel, where I met the beautiful Sarah from Montague Press- (brides, you must consider her invitations, they are amazing- see them here) and Sarah aka Nicole James Photography, a lovely photographer whose work I am looking forward to seeing.
Following on from that was a shoot with Sarah at new Cotswold wedding venue Hyde Barn (so new it isn't finished being built yet! Due for completion in spring) with the Hyde Barn wedding planner Annie Delaney. Pick up a copy of this months Cotswold Style magazine to find out more about Hyde Barn, and to see us listed as one of Annie's recommended suppliers. The shoot itself will appear in next months Cotswold Style.
We were in another feature in Cotswold Style this month, as part of a shoot for The White Rose boutique. Photographer Spencer from All In The Image worked his magic, and it still looked fantastic- Well done Spencer. Also with The White Rose we attended a bridal styling day at the boutique which was lovely; my favourite part of my job is meeting brides to be. So this is our accessory display in The White Rose
and this shot features our accessories for another shoot we were lucky enough to take part in this weekend, for Wedding Ideas magazine, along with some other sparkly designers. Fingers crossed we get picked for the cover!
So as well as the above, throw in attending a very successful industry tweet up(thanks to Karma Kars and Photoglow) and designing pieces for the upcoming bridal shoot byLady Amy Wedding Design, PLUS preparing for the AMAZING vintage wedding fair at the end of this month in Bristol, (at the ZOO, nonetheless)! hosted by vintage tea party lovelies Bristol Vintage, as well as fulfilling our orders (current turnaround time 4 weeks so make sure you get your orders in nice and early) and you can see why blogging has taken a back seat...
Our Little Secret
Our lovely new range that we have been secretly working on- as yet to be named but this might give you a clue as to what it might include! ;)
Istria Baby will be available for pre-order from May.
