It’s always lovely seeing the weddings I have worked on featured on wedding blogs and magazines so I was delighted to see Dana and Oliver’s wedding video by the talented Wedding Film Studio featured on Style Me Pretty. Pop on over to Style Me Pretty to read more from Dana and to see more photos from their wedding, you can read my blog post from earlier this year.
Find Bow Occasions in the latest issue (July / August 2014) of Your Kent Wedding. Ivana, Editor of Your Kent Wedding got in touch in May to ask if I would contribute to the Ask the Experts feature. You can view the question and my reply below.
Dominic is 12 weeks old now… I can’t believe how fast the time has gone. It seems only a week ago that we were bringing this tiny baby home from hospital and now he is wearing 3 – 6 month clothing, chatting and smiling constantly and discovering new parts of the world every day. The latest is his hands… he loves his hands.
I had always planned to return to work when Dominic was 3 months old and that time has come! I have been working on and off since Dominic was about 2 weeks old, replying to enquiries, dealing with press requests etc… However now he is a little bigger and even though he sleeps less, he is more than happy laying on his play mat or sitting in his bouncer next to me in the office playing with his toys and chatting away to himself whilst I work. I am so lucky that I am able to work from home whilst doing what I love and looking after my son. I won’t be working every day from 9 – 5 as we have baby groups to go to and cuddle and playtime to be had however I will be logging on a lot more during the day and also catching up in the evenings when he is in bed. Luckily wedding planning is flexible in that a lot of couples work Monday – Friday during the day so scheduling meetings, telephone calls and Skype conversations for after 6.30pm is perfect.
Happy 1st Anniversary to Dana and Oliver who married at Oliver’s family home last year on a day full of warmth and sunshine… and that was just the weather. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day.
A question I am often asked by my couples, friends and family is whether there are any alternatives to the traditional guest book. Traditional guest books are lovely however are quite often put away after the wedding rarely to be seen again. The good news is that there are so many alternative guest book options available to couples these days and I have done a round up of my favourite alternative guest books below. The great thing about these guest books is that they can be kept on display therefore acting as a lovely constant reminder of your special day.
