Who we are?! What do we do?!

So, it's come to our attention that not many people know what we *actually* do at G&C. Understandably really - we kinda do it all when it comes to events and weddings - ha! I think we have been called a "caterer" more than a wedding coordinator in the last 6 moths, so we thought we need to change that! (Just an FYI - we aren't caterers. Just grazers!)

We thought it's about time to start explaining what we do. Break it down! Tell the people! Share our love for events! So we have now started doing little informative videos of us explaining what we do at Gather & Company. They really are super technical - like a cafe recording with our iPhones - ha. But really, we don't claim to be tech guru's, we are event managers and stylists, so a trustly iphone will just have to do. 

Stick around on social media to hear what we do and what we are up to! 

Here we are recording in the cafe, the Wellington wind and on Jenna's front door step. Weirdos for life. 

The Royal Wedding

You know we put on fancy fascinators, popped a bottle of bubbles, enjoyed some cream scones and settled in for the night of Royal watching, right? I mean, these kind of weddings only come around every so often. Just think the next (major) Royal wedding will probably be one of Prince William or Prince Harry's kids - so that could be a wee way off. So needless to say, we enjoyed every second of watching Meghan Markle & Prince Harry marry!! 

One of us loved the dress and one of us thought perhaps something a little more tailored and exciting would have been fun. But the second dress was thumbs up from both of us, as was her veil and train. And of course our major love fest was with the beautiful flowers by Philippa Craddock, that so perfectly hugged the chapel door. We were in a visual heaven watching the newly weds step out under the door as they greeted those watching from afar.  The extra special part to this was that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have donated their wedding flowers to a hospice in Hackney. Patients and staff at St Joseph's Hospice, were no doubt thrilled at the lovely surprise!

It really was a real life fairy tale - from their stolen romantic glances to the very excited pageboy. To the way her mother Doria Raglan, held her self so poised with so much grace and beauty. To the flowers Price Harry picked for his brides bouquet and the way Meghan leaned over and opened the door for her new husband. It was was a beautiful celebration, that we felt privileged to have witnessed (even if it was from the comfort of our warm, comfy lounge). We  now wish them a life time of love and joy together!
