What's In Your Kit?

Today we have a guest post by Andri Benson of Always Andri:

Having recently launched my company I have been working on my emergency kit and thinking about what I should include. I’ve already got a good kit from my theatre and film set work but I’ve been adapting it to be more suitable for weddings.

The other weekend while working on a wedding with a florist a funny thing happened that made me realise I might need to broaden what I put in it. It was a country wedding and we’d just finished dressing the village church and were heading off to go to the venue with plenty of time to spare before the wedding in the afternoon.  So we got back in to the car and needed to turn it around and decided to do U turn, big mistake, the car swung around we felt a big dip in the road, carried on the turn and then felt a bigger dip, this time the front tyre had got stuck in a ditch!!  After about 10 minutes of trying to get the car out a gentleman drove by who luckily had a tow rope in the back of his car. We got the car out and as we’d given ourselves plenty of time to get the venue, we left the church well before any guests turned up.

So as a city girl it’s never occurred to me that I might need a tow rope in my kit but as I hope to do more country weddings I think it’s something I’m definitely adding to the list. So what unusual item do you have in your kit and why?

    I was reading through to make sure I haven’t missed anything important for my Emergency Kit… I will now be adding a tow rope to my kit! Thanks Andri!
