Smith & The Magpie
Run by Sophie & Henry in North Yorkshire, this duo specialise in design-led collections for wedding styling & décor based on unique seasonal colour palettes. Their taper candles are produced in their Yorkshire studio, and are made with their bespoke blend of both mineral and vegetable waxes.
“We feel very strongly about our choice of wax type, as we have huge concerns over soy and the deforestation that is occurring in Brazil by Cargill and likewise for palm. As avid bee-keepers ourselves, we also like to let the bees keep their stash too - so feel this our unique blend the best combination”.
Phohm is run by Brighton based florist Phoebe Mulrooney! An expert in floral styling, Phoebe previously worked as a prop maker for events and films. She is now preparing to open her first concept store based in Brighton’s North Laine. Phohm specialises in dried flowers, and all arrangements are handpicked and arranged in-house.

“We want to build a sustainable brand that can make a difference in the chocolate and food scene. We want to share our fascination for cacao with our customers and demonstrate how incredible it can taste – without soya lecithin, vegetable fats, additives or E-numbers. Chocolate should be pure, delicious and ethical. Honouring the farmers, the cacao and the maker.”
