"Without mystery, Magic disappears”
Cecil Beaton - Academy Award winning stage and costume designer.
I’ve always enjoyed visiting the bygone era, trawling antique shops, flea markets, charity shops and the odd root at a car boot sale. I was sure to find something wonderful whether it was a broken piece of rhinestone jewellery, a torn piece of hand dyed silk, a box of odd buttons or an old postcard. Each piece had a story to tell and as I wondered where it came from and imagined the people who once owned it, I also dreamed about is potential and who may ultimately love it again.
It was from these dreams and the four words above by Cecil Beaton, that I decided to be the one to give these items a new life and turn them into something truly magical and so in 2009 My Wedding Party was born.
