This week .. in the Spotlight : Yup, that says grazing table.  This lady knows her food and loves nothing more than family style cooking!  PERFECT 🙂 Let’s hear what the lovely Carole has to say : 1/Lazy Sunday? I struggled for ages to come up with a name for my catering business – mainly because I wanted something that put across the ‘sense’ of what we do. Then one Sunday I was pulling things together in the kitchen for friends coming round later in the afternoon. When they arrived, we made salads together while drinking wine and catching up. It was sunny, so we decided to eat outside instead. We trooped into the garden and pulled tables together and put cutlery into a straw basket. Husband lit the BBQ and a slow cooked chicken tagine became eastern spiced chicken bits BBQ’d over a rosemary fire. Chunks of bread were served up with oil and balsamic dips. People helped themselves to beers from the fridge, and wine. We lit another small fire and roasted plantain and butternut and sweet potato, for a hot salad served with creme fraiche and a handful of herbs plucked from the garden. Eventually we ate pudding, supplemented by toasted bananas stuffed with chocolate chips and marshmallow bits. It struck me that this kind of lazy […]

Happy Monday y’all!! Time to put another one of our cracking’ GWC team into yon spotlight again! Let us introduce.. the super lovely, SUPER stylish… LET’S GET THE LOWDOWN FROM THE LADY… 1/ business:
     Skinny Malink you/your team:
  Me (Lynsay O’Connor) with occasional help from my husband Iain (who is one of the Pinup Nights DJs – another GWC supplier!) where: Edinburgh 2/ describe your workspace: Skinny Malink has recently moved into a new studio just off Edinburgh’s Rose street. It’s great to finally have a space that can accommodate all of the printers and stationery materials. It’s also great to have such a central location to meet up with clients to talk through design ideas and their stationery needs.  The studio is a bit bare at the moment, but I’m working on brightening it up! 3/ where did it all begin? It all began less than a year ago. Iain and I were planning our own wedding, as a graphic designer it was a no-brainer to design our own wedding invitations rather than source a supplier or purchase straight off the shelf.  I received such positive feedback on the invitations that we started to think it might be a good idea to set up an alternative stationery business offering affordable-personalised designs ‘off the shelf’ in an online store or completely bespoke to the individual. 4/ favourite work to date? I’m really fond of […]

A gorgeous couple, a quirky venue, and a few GWC members in the wedding team … what do ya get??? A good day, I say.  A ruddy good day! Sequoia, one half of the picture-taking duo, Mirrorbox Photography, had this to say: “It was so much fun to share Jill & Matthew’s day with them, their venue was a perfect fit with what they had planned and we got the opportunity to shoot in one of the UK’s most interesting spaces.  We love the chance to get out and explore with our cameras all the while getting to take photographs of a loved up & lovely couple.”   Venue : The Caves Photography: Mirrorbox Photography Flowers:  Linzi from Jack Fleuriste Music: Pin-Up Nights DJs Beauty: Emma Wallace/ Charlene Lothian Dress: Mori Lee Kilt: Slanj Kilts    

In the spotlight this week… The crazy-lovely.. HEY THERE!  Let’s get the chat… 1/business: SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW: The Bygone Photobooth Company pioneer ‘Instant Nostalgia’ in Scotland!! Hot off the press: A brand new Glasgow-based company have developed their own brand of nostalgia! The Bygone Photobooth Company is the brainchild of young couple Joseph McAree and Stephanie Mortimer. 2/describe your workspace: Our studio is your big day. 3/where did it all begin? That question has an infinite range of answers. I guess it all began several years ago when Joe and I first got together. He was touring France/Germany and at that time was planning to move to France at the end of the tour. We’d both fallen pretty hard for each other and midway through the tour he wrote me a letter to say he was coming home afterwards.  The letter had a beautiful wet chemical photostrip inside and I remember thinking how perfectly it had captured a pure moment. I loved it!! From there I started tinkering with old cameras and we both tried to come up with a way of bringing back the magic of photography, when a photograph was a rare keepsake in a gentleman’s bill-fold.  Before selfies and social media.  Eventually we came up with the idea of combining old and new, The Bygone Photobooth […]
