Tell us what you love?

I love quirky, colourful and eclectic objects…things with a story behind them…my office is filled with items from my travels like a white dove I got in Belgium, a vintage turquoise tea-set I found in an antique shop in Edinburgh, blankets from a trip to Argentina, oh, and a giant parrot from a Glyndebourne opera!

Tell us a bit about your HQ…

HQ is an unassuming barn in Sussex, but inside is an Aladin’s cave of trinkets, beautiful fabrics, interesting furniture and lots and lots of cushions!

What do you love most about your job?

I love a lot of things about my job and are blessed to be doing what I do so happily but

Super pleased to also spot Mr & Mrs Unique suppliers Doris Loves awesome light up letters and see that House Of Hud helped decorate the venue- sister company to Arabian Tents.

Over to Charlotte to tell us more about the event and collection…

Charlotte from Wilden Bride…

At first I walked past the One Church venue, just at one end of North Laine in Brighton.

In hindsight, I should have taken the glittering party goers on the stoop as a clue, but I’m an out-of-towner and just thought all the Brighton cool kids hang out of stoops looking fabulous!

On finally making an entrance into the unassuming church, the high ceilings decorated with swathes of pink streamers by House of Hud. All around was a bustling mingling of brightly coloured beings with cool hair, most notably the Candy Queen girls in
