About Kate

I am Kate Beavis, and want everyone to design a life they want rather than what they are told to put up with.

I am a published author and writer on all things vintage. I run Magpie Wedding and The ECO Wedding Shows – helping couples create modern sustainable weddings.

I run The Indie Practice, supporting businesses with marketing strategies. I am also a menopause activist on TikTok, and support you to “wear what you want at any age.

I’m a champion juggler!
