Locate to Create Get Their Glam On

Locate to Create Get Their Glam On

With Locate to Create now passing its nine-month birthday, I took the opportunity to invite some preferred suppliers to help create a branded shoot, boasting both their skills and capability’s, whilst also creating an opportunity for you guys to get to know the Locate to Create team better.

 

In an effort to glam up both my mother and I for the branded shoot, we enrolled the help of a fantastic makeup artist to soften our edges. Sharon arrived at 6:30am and with a cup of coffee and her talented makeup skills, she gave us the glam needed to confront the cameras. If only we could have our makeup done by Sharon every morning, but perhaps not so early!

  

The location for the shoot was Mount Ephraim, a beautiful family owned country manor situated in the heart of Kent. This venue provided the perfect backdrop for the shoot. Its stunning grounds and amazing interior offered a vast variety of shoot locations, tying in seamlessly with the props that we brought with us on the day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The photographer for the day was based locally in Kent and had vast experience with similar shoots. Michelangelo was able to understand the essence of the Locate to Create brand and was also able to take a photo of my mum that she actually liked. Michelangelo understood we were looking to have professional yet fun photos and someone to endure my Dad’s very bad jokes, which he did.

As you can see from the photos above, our team consists of four members with my Mum (Linda) and myself working full time. My Dad, Roy (pink shirt) and Charlie are a key part of our logistics team, ensuring that our delivery, set up and collection are hassle free for our clients.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Linda (left photo) is in charge of making sure that things are in place and ready for your event, making sure that we provide a service that is memorable. You will also find her painting and designing props to add to our collection. Here are three interesting facts about Linda:

  1. Enjoyed two years living in Denmark as well as 12 years in the Philippines
  2. She has two metal hips
  3. Loves a glass of wine in her pajamas watching TV

This is me (right photo) founder of Locate to Create. I am in charge of the day to day running of Locate to Create with a specific focus on sales, business development and client relationships. Here are my three interesting facts.

  1. I grew up in the Philippines and spend 12 years of my life living in Asia
  2. Definitely obsessed with my dog, Teddy
  3. I completed the London Marathon in 2017 – My legs are still sore

 

 

I hope that this blog and our branded shoot has given you a better insight into who we are. Thank you to the amazing suppliers that collaborated with us on this shoot. Here’s to many more!

Our Top Winter Vintage Event Trends

At Locate to Create we love Christmas parties, winter weddings and social events.

Here are some of our top winter vintage event trends to brighten up, add a theme or solve a practical problem at your event!

Candelabras:
Add an elegant warm,soft glow to your function table by incorporating traditional candelabras. There are so many styles,shapes, sizes and finishes to choose from. Our favourite look at the moment is the classic five tier with the addition of some simple foliage.
Milk Churns:
With the Great British weather living up to its name so often guests turn up to an event with dripping umbrellas, what should they do with them? Milk churns offer a practical, convenient  yet charming solution. Why not leave craft paper tags and a pen nearby so guests can label their umbrellas, eliminating any confusion regarding which umbrella belongs to which guest. Churns are available in so many shapes sizes and finishes including brass, copper, aluminium and painted so your bound to find the right one for your event.
Fir/Holly Tree trimmings:
How about this idea for your winter wedding?
Attach craft paper labels to fir tree, or holly tree off cuts, for the perfect themed place cards. So simple yet so effective.
