We'll be setting up a fabulous photobooth and stand full of gorgeous goodies, games and treats at the Waterside Shopping Centre (near La Senza).

Ali has had some really fabulous donations for the tombola from some amazing business, including...
Thank you so much to you all!

The star attraction of the day is sure to be Ali's photobooth, which is going to be stocked full of silly props for people to come and have some fun photographs taken, and all for a very worthy cause!

I love lucy! ♥

You all know that I ♥ Lucy Stendall (here's the supplier feature that i wrote about her back in March) and so after months of planning I was so pleased that I finally had the chance to have some photographs taken by her!

Last Sunday Lucy paid a visit to my little house to take some pictures of me at work in my studio!

Along with a B.E.A.UTIFUL Oh My Honey dress (which is now mine for keeps, yay!) a gorgeous Flo and Percy headband and some amazing bespoke Golden Apple cupcakes from Can Dee Cween cupcakery (who i've discovered lives a 5 minute walk away from me - bad news for my thighs) I was also lucky enough to have been given lovely 50's style hair and make up from the lovely Emma Fay.

With a soundtrack of She and Him to fit with the vintage feel of the day and plenty of tea and chat we had such a lovely afternoon, and I can't wait to see the final results! :)

Thank you lovely Lucy!! :D

Hooray for Cloggins!

As you may know, the lovely Emma from The Wedding Reporter is working her last day in the day job today, so that she can provide us with her wonderful words, wisdom and wit on a full time basis!


As soon as I found out about The Wedding Reporter I fell in love with the idea, and i am so so pleased that it's becoming such a huge success! Good Luck Emma, it's been so awesome working alongside you these past few months - I know that you're going to do amazingly well! You rock! :)

Please show her some love in the comments box below!

Best weekend ever? ♥ {Monday Musings}

What an amazing weekend!

As you may have heard, I went to Brighton with Ali Lovegrove (check out my behind the scenes holiday snaps here and some sneak previews of the shoot on Ali's blog here) and we had the most incredible time!

Although it was SUCH hard work it really was like a holiday and I had so much fun!

♥ My holiday highlights ♥

♥ The drive there - finally getting to speak to Ali in person and getting along like a house on fire!

♥ Not being able to find Louise's house and being absolutely terrified, which whilst scary at the time is really funny to look back on now!

♥ First setting eyes on the beautiful Oh My Honey creation and feeling butterflies that I was the lucky person who would be wearing it that very next day! (You can't see it in it's entirety yet, but there is a little preview on Ali's blog and I can tell you that it has a petticoat made from layers and layers of soft tulle in shades of pink and ivory and is made from the softest matt ivory duchess satin - to die for!)

♥ Getting up at 5.45am to get to the beach for sunrise, which was SO worth it.

♥ Being congratulated by passers by in the street who thought I was actually getting married!

♥ Thinking I could see a man praying at the water's edge (i didn't have my glasses on!) and being told it was just a rock, and then later finding out that is WAS a man praying!

♥ Seeing how excited and passionate Ali is about her work - she's amazing!

♥ Being given permission to take photographs on the carousel by the scary looking man who turned out to be lovely!

♥ Eating candyfloss

♥ Getting changed in the oh so glamorous multi story carpark!

♥ Hearing a little girl cry"It's a Princess!!"

♥ Going into the sea in a massive wedding dress!

♥ Finally changing out of the dress into normal clothes after a mammoth 8 hour shoot in the sweltering heat!

♥ Buying souvenir necklaces with Ali - I chose a carousel and she a lovely little camera, perfect!

♥ Eating the most delicious sausage and chips on the beach

♥ Buying ice cream from the funny man on the pier "Ice cream for you laaady?"

♥ Laughing at Ali struggling to eat the monstrous ice cream

♥ More lovely chat on the way home

♥ And finally... slumping down onto my sofa after the busiest, most fun packed, exciting day!

I hope your weekend was as good as mine! :)

♥ This Week ♥

Now back to reality, and as you can imagine my to do list is humongous!

This week i will mostly be...
♥ Preparing samples for some fantastic product shots with SMD Photography
♥ Designing some logos
♥ Sending out sample packs to brides and suppliers alike!
♥ Rejigging my logo and blog design packages
♥ Preparing for Sunday's shoot with Lucy Stendall
♥ Finishing off some invitation orders
♥ Designing some stationery for an Autumn themed wedding

For now though, i'm enjoying a well deserved day off (well, after this blog post!) so i will see you tomorrow!

Lots of love!

I've been on an amazing adventure this weekend!!

Last night Ali Lovegrove and I drove to wonderful Brighton to stay with the lovely Louise from Oh My Honey (who lives in the most incredible farmhouse!) and armed with a box full of amazing goodies from a team of fantastic suppliers we embarked on a super exciting project!

Our adventure started at 7am with a magical sunrise on Brighton Beach.

Here are my behind the scenes holiday snaps from the day!

I can't wait to share the official photographs with you - head over to Ali's blog tomorrow for the sneakiest of sneak peeks!!
