Thank you EWE – we had a blast!

It’s June. June! Not just the beginning but the second week of June at that! We have a proper backlog of blog posts to share with you and I’ve already spent nearly an hour deliberating about what to share first. One of the REAL weddings that we’ve been involved in? Maybe one of the shoots we have up our sleeve? or the second half of the Scarborough Tattoo Show I promised you last week? Well, it’s actually about time we showed you what went on at the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza. We LOVED being involved in this great event and can’t believe over 2 months has passed since we were joining the ranks of alternative wedding suppliers at EWE in Birmingham. Part of the reason it’s taken me so long to create this post is because Jay is an insatiable demon behind the camera and produced a whopping 988 images of the weekend. All the images in this blog are Jay’s and we’ve focused just on our part in the event (which in itself is 144 images!) so if you fancy checking out a wider view of the event please feel free to check out here If you’ve never heard of Continue Reading →

We’ve been quiet but look at everything we’ve been up to…

You know we’re busy right? The ‘I don’t even have time to check my shirt is on the right way out’ kinda busy. The ‘I’m placing orders twice because I’d rather have 2 than find out I didn’t order any’ kinda busy. The kinda busy where if a job takes more than 30 seconds to complete and isn’t directly connected to a brides order it simply gets added to the ever increasing ‘to do’ list. I bleat on about it ALL the time. I feel like I’m constantly harping on about how little time there is in a day or the things I’ve yet to do… or maybe I don’t? I realise that even though I have this constant monologue going on in my head, very rarely does it leek out. And instead of telling you guys how crazy busy we are, or how our appointments are booked up for several weeks or that we’re not taking any more orders for this summer, it simply looks like we’ve gone quiet. Because writing a blog post takes time. And time feels like an ever decreasing commodity. As a result several weeks have passed since our last update and I’m scared by Continue Reading →

Should we create a newsletter?

It’s crazy times here at Legend and there is so much of our day to day life that we can’t share with you. It’s a clandestine affair – so much of what we do has to be kept secret so that we don’t spoil any surprises for our brides. It’s serious business. Can you imagine if we inadvertently shared glimpses of dresses we are working on and gave away our brides? We are so used to keeping our day to day work secret that we actually find it quite difficult to share the other sides of our business, particularly on social media. It seems to go against the grain somehow. Almost as if it’s unprofessional to share anything other than the finished article in a perfectly manicured setting… and you definitely don’t want to see our ugly mugs do you? But it’s something we plan to work on. If you’re anything like me I find it absolutely fascinating to see how something is made or look into someone’s work space… well maybe we can work on ‘how our collection dresses are made’ to give you that look behind the scenes. Of course if you do want to keep up to Continue Reading →

7 days to go! Eclectic Wedding Extavaganza

We are SOOOOO excited to be invited to exhibit at the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza! We have watched this event grow over the years and secretly wished we could join the fun. The last few weeks have been crazy busy (with so many awesome proposal stories), and the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza has kinda crept up on us! So, while all our loved up brides-to-be are having romantic weekends away we’ve taken the opportunity to work out what we are going to showcase. While getting everything together I realised that, other than a couple of little Facebook posts, we haven’t really shared the awesomeness of EWE! So where do we begin? Where is it? It’s at The Bond in Birmingham. From what we can gather it’s an awesome venue. We LOVED reading about Jo & Spigs wedding over on our sister blog Beneath the Dark Veil. Who is going to be there? Besides us you mean? Well, there are some AMAZING businesses signed up to be there and I CANNOT wait to go and say hi and make new friends – It’s always fantastic when you can get to know like minded businesses and there are PLENTY of new faces for us Continue Reading →
