If you’ve been following us over on Instagram recently you’ll have seen what a busy but wonderful past few weeks this has been for us. We just finished up on an amazing, albeit baltic, weekend at the Etsy Made Local in The Briggait and it was so lovely to see some familiar faces but also meet new Neon Gray customers.
As the nights grow darker, there seem to be about four hours of daylight here in Scotland right? It can be so tempting to stay indoors after you have finished your day.But last Tuesday I decided to brave the icy weather, slide on the thermals and pop down to the Botanics in Glasgow for this year's GlasGLOW.
So it’s been 6 yearssince we first launched The Banter Collection and I can’t believe I’m just getting round to writing this post.I’ve always loved the nostalgia of the old Scottish sayings and the new ones that pop up from time to time.
I thought it was about time I gave all of you lovely people a rundown of some of the colourful and possibly confusing words that we put in our collection.
As soon as the decision was made to marry in Iceland, we knew that we wanted to honeymoon there too. We had been to Iceland once before to celebrate our 30th birthdays and hiring a car was the best way to see the country. We looked at a few different options and eventually settled on a 2 berth camper van. To our surprise, the company upgraded us and we arrived at Reykjavik airport to a 4 berth luxury motorhome.
I really wanted the space to be a bright, fun place to work and decided to paint a mural across the whole back wall of the studio. I'm loving memphis patterns at the moment and have started to incorporate them into the brand.
For as long as I can remember I've wanted to see Goðafoss, one of Iceland's spectacular waterfalls, so I asked if we could do some shots there. It was pretty busy with tourists but Ryan and John somehow managed to make it look as if we were the only ones there.
Like most brides, I have been pinning my dream wedding on Pinterest for years. Always with the thought that I'd find a similar dress I'd seen when the time came, or maybe I could commission a jeweller to make a ring I'd fallen in love with that wasn't available anymore.
A year and a half on from our elopement in Iceland, I'm finally sitting down to create a wedding album. In this 4 part mini series, I'm sharing the 3 days surrounding our wedding and then some of the highlights from our honeymoon.
