Margot’s Wedding is For Sale!

December 18, 2021 | Wedding Industry

Happy Christmas everyone! Only a week to go… until it’s all over (I’m such a bah humbug). With school broken up I now enter the phase of not knowing what day it is or what on earth I’m supposed to be doing. I DO know it’s my birthday on Thursday and I’m going to Brighton with my pals for brunch, shopping and cake. I have instructed everyone the dress code is The Birthday Jumper i.e. the antithesis of the Christmas jumper.

Love Isn’t Cancelled – A Poem

The wedding industry has been all I’ve really known for the last ten years. It’s the career I’ve shaped for myself. I’ve made a life out of parties, celebrations… good times.

March 18, 2020 | News, Wedding Industry

Sorry, it’s another post about Covid 19. I don’t know about you but I’m finding updates from businesses very interesting. The thing with this is everyone’s got a unique set of circumstances so it’s interesting to see what tack people are taking. Although it does seem like choices are rapidly being taken out of our hands. Personally I’m doing what I can today/tomorrow while my son’s at nursery because if (or should I say when) they close, it’s game over… for goodness knows how long. My son Rupert is four and he’s not the kind of kid who plays quietly…
