Bringing the Festival to you – Behind the scenes!

So back in September we worked on a crazy colourful photoshoot with a team of amazing suppliers to showcase our epic HENFEST packages! As you know at Pitch Boutique we organise alternative hen parties that will be a breath of fresh air for those who hate the idea of an ‘L’ plates hen do with strippers, willy straws and party dares!

We worked with an electric mix of suppliers to create a festival inspired set for our hen to celebrate in style, here’s some sneaky peaks from behind the scenes!

Apparently the term ‘henfest’ refers to a rowdy group of women, whilst we aren’t aiming for rowdy it was defiantly a beautiful group of women celebrating in festival style.

We planning this styled HENFEST shoot around the launch of Pitch Boutique, hosting it in a garden so the surroundings are realistic to the settings our brides to be will have for their hen parties.

We created a bright and colourful setting, with a party vibe, to recreate the euphoric festival feeling. Sunglasses on, glitter make up, prosecco in hand and your favourite people around you.

The full shoot is being featured in April on a very very exciting UK wedding blog, keep an eye on our Instagram and we will be sharing the news very soon!

Artisan florist Passion Flowers by Emma Spowage gave the site a colourful pop, with stunning ‘flowery balls’, table pieces and flower crowns. We then styled the site with calligraphy boards from Letter Me Kiki, giant festival flags from Event Flag Hire and the colourful soft furnishings from Lily Mae Designs.

When looking for suppliers for the shoot we certainly knew who we wanted to capture the day. Ella Violet Photography has always inspired us with her natural shots, we knew her style would fit in perfectly with our festival atmosphere. We also got in touch with Caitlin from One Forever Films who agreed to shoot a behind the scenes trailer from the day to catch all the supplier in action.

We loved bringing together this quirky styled shoot inspired by our very own HENFEST packages. Are you planning a Hen Party? Head over to our Hen Party Page to get inspired.

Girls Night Glamping

With young girls becoming more and more grown up these days it seems only fair to give them a grown up ‘sleepover’ to suit! The summertime is synonymous with sleepovers and girls nights in so we’ve put a twist on the traditional sleepover and have taken it to the great outdoors, with a fair few luxuries to create a dreamy girls night glamping.

We’ve put together a guide to help you bring the ultimate girls night glamping to your garden!

Step 1 – Round The Girls

Because life can sometimes get busy, with all the stress of coursework and exams it’s only fair they get a little break from it all for some much needed girl time! I would plan around a month in advance, when you have a better idea on the weather and a chance to get something booked in everyone’s diaries. If you’re looking to find a supplier for a bell tent, enquire for availability straight away! Weekends are very popular days for glamping so book early to avoid disappointment.

Step 2 – Set The Scene

It’s girls night so we need a relaxing and cosy space for the girls to catch up with comfy beds and warm lighting. If you want to book the true girls night glamping the are many companies across the UK that offer bell tent hire and will come and setup and dismantle the next day, saving you the stress of setting up yourself.

If you’re in the Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire or Essex us lot from Pitch Boutique can provide you with our boutique glamping package including memory foam mattresses and cosy bedding creating the perfect setting for the girls night glamping.

• When setting up your own tent these are a few things you need to remember:

• Mattresses – either blow up, roll matts or foam mattresses – just make sure you have enough space

• Warm bedding – Ask the girls to bring their own sleeping bags, or make it extra luxurious with cosy duvets and pillows.

• Lighting – Its outside so you’ll need battery powered lighting, think lots of fairy lights and lanterns.  

• Decor – Its a girls night so it needs to be pretty, why not sting up some bunting, get creative with some paper pom poms and pick so flowers from the garden.

Step 3 – Midnight Feast

No girls night is complete without a midnight feast, which is more likely to be eaten by 8pm! Get shopping for sweets, chocolate treats, crisps, popcorn, fruit platters and donuts. All the naughty but nice treats perfect for a girls catch up.

Step 4 – Pack The Material

Raid your local shop for this months selection of girly mags, from catching up on your horoscopes to the latest makeup and fashion trends these are a must have addition to any girls night.

Step 5 – Get Comfortable

The beauty of a girls night in is leaving those heels shoes at home! The invites should state a comfortable only packing list, we’re talking the fluffy sets of PJ’s, cosy slippers and even a little hot water bottle to keep them toasty during the night.

Step 6 – Stay Hydrated

Whilst we do mean drink lots of water, because H2O is always good for you, it is girls night so they deserve a treat. Why not get some Schloer in the fridge, they are ‘grown ups’ after all, stock up on your mini marshmallows and whipped cream ready for an ultimate hot chocolate to keep them cosy later on!

Step 7 – Bring The Movie Theatre Home

No girls night is complete without a tear jerking click flick! Get the laptop or iPad all charged up and download a girly movie on Netflix for them to get tucked in.

The images in this post are from a girls night for the beautiful Rosie and Millie from Colchester, Essex. We set up the ultimate girls night glamping in the garden for a proper sisterly catch up, whilst still being close enough to home they had their own space for the night

Tribe Gathering – Aztec Style!

Welcome to the Tribe Gathering!

Who said black and white is boring?! Well this Aztec Party certainly wasn’t! We wanted to create a fun, grown up theme suitable for both boys and girls to play together.

Working as a partnership to organise this shoot Pitch Boutique and Ami Louisa Photography along with a team of fantastic suppliers styled this Aztec Tipi party setting.

AMI_5840

Aztec by definition is an American Indian who was dominant in Mexico in the 16th century. We choose to work to a colour scheme of black, white, browns and cooper to pull the Aztec theming through the styling and kept the children predominantly wearing denim for a modern twist.

AMI_5974

The capes and crowns provided by For Just One Day were the perfect addition to style our little models, pulling the Aztec theme into today’s trends.

Once Upon a Facepaints worked with some funky black and white patterns for the children for a fun alternative to your traditional face painting.

AMI_5820

Lily Mae Designs created a bespoke Aztec range for this shoot, pulling together the colour scheme and themed fabrics for the cushions and bunting to tie the styling for the tipi together.

These scrummy tipi cookies were designed by Happiness Factor Cakes, it took so much strength for the little ones to not eat these straight away!

These furry friends joined the party from Nelly and Me Clothing, the perfect Aztec companions.

Want to host your own Tribe gathering? Get in touch and we can discuss how we can bring the Aztec Party to your home!
