23 Sep


Well good afternoon you gorgeous lot!

If you are still looking for your wedding venue then, my lovelies, we have a date for you to book into your diaries! On Saturday 4th October 2014 between 11am-4pm, the very cool Yoghurt Rooms will be opening the doors to their beautiful new oak barn which is now ready for weddings and parties for up to 120 guests. This quirky barn has quite literally been born out of love as it was converted by hand by the owners son for his wedding making it that extra bit special.

Want to know more? Well read on peeps……

Located in 300 acres of stunning Sussex countryside, Yoghurt Rooms is a wonderfully unique venue that allows couples to create their perfect day. Set on a working farm within easy reach of London, Gatwick and Brighton; it is a private, family run venue where guests are welcomed as part of the family.

The whole farm is yours to transform into your dream, bespoke event.  Hire includes three yurts, camping, a granary apartment and of course the stunning new barn.  Designed by the head of the family, Dirk Bauer, and lovingly constructed by his son Tijs; the barn was completed this summer in time for Tijs’s wedding. It is now ready for bride and grooms to make their own.

All elements of Yoghurt Rooms’ will be open for viewing at our Autumn Open Day, we will even have some of our delicious organic beef available to sample and buy with the launch of Busses Beef Boxes.  There will also be a cupcake decorating workshop and cocktail making so you can take a little break from planning and fully enjoy the farm experience.

A selection of local wedding suppliers will be present on the day, providing ideas and inspiration for your special day so come along on the 4th October and let your imagination run wild.

For more information contact info@yoghurtrooms.com or to book a private tour.

I may be popping along to check out the barn ourselves so if you see a blonde haired girl with a 16 week old baby (who is just so gorgeous!) then give me a wave!

Happy Tuesday.

A Love for Vintage and the Bohemian

27 Dresses Designs was started in August of 2012 by Christina Mays after a friend asked her to design her bridal headpiece and something for her bridesmaids.

After attending the wedding and seeing her work strut down the aisle, Christina knew she was meant for this, and started offering her services to local brides.  A short while later, she opened her Etsy shop.  At first, she posted a few pieces for every style of wedding, using the film 27 Dresses for ideas (hence the name), but soon after realised she had a true love in vintage and bohemian inspired looks.

Offering custom work has also proved to be a crowd pleaser:

“Christina customised this piece for me to use as a belt for my wedding (which was something nobody else was able to do for me!).  She was very attentive to detail and communicated other options to make the piece look exactly as I wanted it.  The final product and the unique, vintage, and romantic look of this piece is perfect for my all lace wedding gown.  This is a beautiful product and a wonderful shop!”

The 2015 Collection

The 27 Dresses Designs 2015 Collection includes 3 unique gowns, 5 headpieces, and 4 miscellaneous bridal accessories.  With this collection, Christina has strived to create by thinking organically and originally, getting out and about and being inspired by her surroundings.  The result? Designs such as the tulle headband with detachable flower, pin on ruffle straps, and lace armbands; perfectly flexible, and oh-so-boho!

All items from this collection are handmade with love in Christina’s home studio in her artsy hometown of Chesterton, Indiana. Being chock full of musicians, artists, and antique shops, Chesterton has become the heartbeat of her inspiration and pushes her to keep thinking outside of the box.
