Discover talented local artisan makers, designers and creative small businesses

I know the importance of shopping local and shopping with independent business which is why I organise unique wedding markets which do just that! But, with the Markets being over for 2021, I wanted to continue to help support and showcase local businesses, and what better time to do it but the run up to Black Friday.

Black Friday is notorious for expecting businesses to discount their products, but thankfully with campaigns such as Just a Card and Small Business Saturday in the UK, we as consumers are seeing that gifting does not always have to come from Amazon!

In the run up to Black Friday, I want to share with you my community of creative independent businesses and connections who will ensure that you have truly the most unique and one-of-a-kind pieces for your wedding, or gifts for yourself or for others.

Throughout the 2 weeks leading up to the Black Friday starting on Monday 15th November, I will share with you a variety of creative independent businesses I have worked with and admire so that you can meet them too. Although predominantly wedding businesses, these gorgeous people offer a range of gifting ideas perfect not only for your wedding day but birthdays and dare I say it…Christmas!
