What can I say about Julia and Curious Magpie... We had a large tipi wedding, and came to Julia with some pretty strange thematic ideas, and she embraced every one, turning what was already a pretty special canvas (literally!), into the most perfect space we could have hoped for. Beautiful plants, greenery and foliage to encompass a jungle feel, a ‘memory tree’ to honour and remember lost family members who couldn’t be there, beautiful signage... just a perfectly creative and generous supplier who did everything we could have asked for to make the day perfect for us.
She’s a legend, and so lovely to boot! Do not hesitate in meeting up with her to discuss your own event!

Jules is fantastic! She’s so creative with the space & produces the most sumptuous designs you could ask for. She should be your first port of call for your wedding or any event that needs a bit of a wow factor.

Jules did the decor and styling for our wedding reception in September in Nottingham. The venue looked absolutely stunning and we cannot fault what she did with the place. We gave a brief on the theme we wanted over email and provided a few ideas via a Pinterest board and what she did from the limited details we supplied was amazing. Jules managed to transform a huge open hall in to a stylish, warm, and welcoming carnival themed affair. Our guests were full of compliments and the bar staff at the venue said it was the best the Grange Hall had ever looked in all the times they had catered there. Hats off to Jules, she has an amazing vision and impeccable styling skills and I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Thanks again!

Jules did our wedding reception in August 2018 and it was fantastic. We got married abroad so it was so good to let our hair down when we got back and know everything was taken care of! The hall looked absolutely amazing, we had so many comments from the guests about how good it was. Thank you Jules!

Jules was our planner for our wedding in September and we cannot recommend her enough! We had so many compliments from our guests saying how good the food and service was, about the lovely quirky personal touches and just overall how much FUN it was!! The artwork for the chalk boards was lovely... sausage dog themed in honour of our pooch, and we were able to rename all the cocktails (which were delicious) on our own personal drinks menu. Jules and her team were so easy to work with and gave us complete peace of mind for our village hall wedding, which certainly did not look like a village hall when Jules had finished working her magic! Throughout the planning process Jules was on hand to answer any question or worry we might have and was certainly a very calming influence on the day before the wedding. Thanks so much Jules and co. for a really amazing day and a lifetime of memories!

We hired a village hall last year in the middle of the countryside and hired Jules and her team to work some magic. The hippy chic transformation that took place turned our venue into a bohemian wonderland of vibrant colours and quirky style.
Jules was excellent! Totally in control and so easy to talk to. She took our ideas and turned them into a dream come true. It was a wedding to remember and we can’t thank you enough!

We had the pleasure of working with Jules when she styled our wedding two years ago. Right from the offset, she put us at our ease. It felt like working with a friend. She brings real enthusiasm and energy to the planning process and was very perceptive and picked up what we liked and what we were after really quickly. Jules has a real talent for guiding you in styling your event and doesn’t need you to micromanage her, as she just gets it! We shared ideas with her via Pinterest (a great idea that would never have occurred to me!) and she was able to totally run with what we envisioned but found hard to articulate. She was incredibly helpful in suggesting food and drink options that suited our taste and budget.

Despite being hugely busy and in demand, Jules was always available for a chat and responded quickly to emails etc.

When I arrived at our venue on the wedding day, the styling was better that I could have imagined! It was everything I’d dreamt of and so much more. It was absolutely beautiful, and my friends still comment on what a great day it was and how beautiful and “us” everything was; and how delicious the food and cocktails were. That’s the key thing for me: it didn’t look or feel like a generic wedding, it was bespoke and gorgeous and that’s all down to Jules.

On the day, Jules and her team were ever present and everything was seamlessly done. We can’t recommend her highly enough! Thank you Jules!
