We have just discovered Knot & Pop and we love them… We fell in love with their stylish and creative themes the moment we saw them
A bit about them
Whether helping couples to tie the knot or celebrate something with the pop of a cork, Knot & Pop use the flair, style and imagination needed to create bespoke events that feel super personal, creative and above all memorable.
Knot & Pop is Claire Knill and Susie Young – a dynamic duo that offer a distinctive creative touch to event scheming and theming as they recognise that everyone, every couple, every occasion is different – therefore every event should be too. Every occasion is an excuse to create a visual narrative that totally represents the hosts of the day. Claire and Susie, as Knot & Pop, have become the go-to-girls for insights, inspiration and the delivery of the kind of events you’d love to go to – and of course, host.
Grounded in scene-setting, Knot & Pop offer and combine full event planning and styling with a hire service, creating a carefully curated mix of props that span from bespoke crafted items to crockery. Couples come to Knot & Pop for bespoke, hand-crafted, meticulously sourced and weaved together events that make big day occasions truly special – creating interest and engaging guests at every step.
Setting the colours to pop regardless of the Scottish weather (a constant worry with the ceremony being on the lawn outdoors!), the palette played through all the details with streamer garland ceremony alcoves, maps to explore the grounds, fortune teller games to get guests mingling and large balloons with circle garlands cascading from the marquee ceiling.
Wild flowers featured in clusters, hung in painted tins to create the escort board, with billy ball stems attached to circular tags forming the place setting. Vintage illustrations of wild flowers also acted as the back-drop to the photo booth, that saw guests get really involved with a table of props to grab and pose with.
Paper fans were meticulously folded to add interest to the top table backdrop, with table numbers mirrored in mini paper fans, peeking out from spray painted gold bottles. All manner of vintage bottles and plates were on display to add a personal touch to the celebration, with the mouth-wateringcake table mixing vintage crockery with touches of gold for modernity.
Guests were served canapés after the ceremony with a delicious rustic three course meal to follow, with sausage and mash for late night snacks, served in kraft cups with wooden forks and knives wrapped in bakers twine and napkins stamped in the couple’s initials.
The day reflected the couple, their loves and their quirks, and created the perfect setting for their closest friends and family to have fun and celebrate until the wee Scottish hours
