26 June 2016 • Sustainable Styling Masterclass

I had a great day with a great bunch of ladies. Conversation was open and everyone was sharing their experience and passion. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone looking at going into event styling, planning their own wedding or any creatives out there looking to meet like minded people. Total value for money, I learnt so much more than I expected! I will definitely be back to join in more Put your heart into it classes.

Such an inspiring day spent with lovely people. Laura was great, and we covered a lot In a few hours. I would highly recommend this workshop for anyone who is interested in wedding styling, or planning one in the new future. I am hoping to go to a few more workshops soon.


02 July 2015 • Sustainable Styling Masterclass

I had the pleasure of working with 5 astonishing women with one common goal. To create and style our own eco friendly weddings. We were greeted by Laura, our guide and mentor and a stunning banquet of delightful cheeses and wine. Laura truly got our creative minds ticking. She shared her passion for her job, her trade secrets and her methods and together we worked on our key goals for our special days. After brainstorming and chatting about our ideas we got our hands dirty and crafted beautiful clay pendants to incorporate In our styling sesh. Then, with wine in hand, we were welcomed into the White room. An amazing bright photography space filled with beautiful props and greenery. We played with our ideas and props to create beautiful photographic centrepieces and capture the thoughts and feelings we had spoken about. I left completely inspired by food and visuals, I can't wait to create the dream wedding I have always imagined and I know I can now thanks to the inspiration I gained from this class!
