Tonight I am curled up on my terrace, watching lightning flashing over Morocco and have also read it is snowing just behind me up in the hills behind Marbella. What a diverse and wonderful part of the world I live in and am so embracing the winter season as the clocks went back last night.

Cosy knitwear, fluffy socks, winter food, endless tea, winter beach walks, I just love it and of course the build-up to Christmas! Yes, I am one of those Christmas freaks that will be dying to put the tree up once Halloween has finished but will have to sit it out for November at least! (more…)

We adore styled shoots and recently I was contacted by the lovely Sophia who wanted to share a magical styled shoot she had worked on with some amazing bridal industry specialists in Australia. The concept and photography was created by Desa and Filip at Sephory Photography.

This shoot was brought to life using a vibrant palette of blush pinks, pure white and rich greenery. The result was a European inspired feel that showcased the love between two people.

Everyone keeps telling us business owners we have to shout out about us, what we are (erh a human!), what we do (plan weddings and make them look amazing!) and our lives! (mine is pretty boring!)

So as I sit here patiently waiting for Santa to arrive before I can go to bed, I have been reflecting on the past week. (more…)

Help to get David Toms back home

I will start with going back to the day I found out about David Toms accident.  Utter shock, horror and could not get this off my mind, even to this day I often find myself thinking about David and wonder how he copes with the life changing accident he suffered, both mentally and physically.

Having broken his neck and now a quadriplegic, this situation challenges our understanding as to how anyone can move on and enjoy some quality of life, but they do.

Some of you may recall the blog post I did about David over a year ago a few months after his terrible accident.

A quick recap, it was about an amazing and inspiring couple, Mary and Marc, I had the pleasure of organising their wedding for.

They had faced a very similar life trauma when Marc also had a life changing car accident, at a much younger age.

As many of our followers know we are not just Wedding Planners with excel spreadsheets, although of course we have these and like to make them look pretty 🙂

With a background in interior design and retail merchandising, I am an experienced wedding stylist and I work with our clients to ensure their imagination is perfectly translated in preparation for their day.  I don’t just turn our clients over to a florist and other suppliers to pull off a look in the hope you will get the dream day you imagined.

Watching the Design World

It is no secret that the interior designer in me is a constant source of inspiration when it comes to applying aesthetics to our weddings.  I adore, and probably spend too many hours, poring over interior design trends and ideas.

I love interiors, from Modern to Moroccan, Mediterranean to English Country Garden or City Living.  All such different styles and each one provides a huge source of inspiration for me to apply to my work.  Give me cushions and I am in heaven!   (more…)

A Wedding Planners Winter, what do we get up to!

I often wonder where the busy summer months go and of course in the winter we do slow down, but ever so slightly as there is always so much to catch up on.

So what do wedding planners get up to in the winter!

I thought it would be a nice idea to write a little blog post about what we have been up to and give our readers a little insight into our lives.

Adding Pinterest to Blogger

November 3rd, 2012 Posted by About me, Blogging, My Inspirations, My life 0 thoughts on “Adding Pinterest to Blogger”
I am bouncing around tonight with excitement as finally I have worked out how to add the coveted Pinterest buttons to my blog :)!!
 
Not just a follow me Pinterest badge, which I did quickly tonight as this is easy, but to add Pin It to every image on my blog.
 
 
I have posted a lovely image of one of my obsessions, ribbons 🙂 just so you can see the Pin It in action!
 
 I was not bought up with computers, so everything I know and continue to learn has been self taught through many hours of googling, watching tutorials, and really just finding my way around.  Plus I do find my daughters very helpful as from the ages of six they were teaching me how to do predicitive texting and more recently uploading apps to my iphone for me 🙂  I am beginning to sound like a Geek!
 
 I have spent years learning how to create websites, studying online social marketing and keeping up to date with trends, it is a subject I find hugely interesting and fascinating, I could never have started my business without the wonderful world of worldwide web.
 
Technology, as far as I am concerned, is still rocket science but I am hooked and do love finding out how to do things and always love a challenge.
 
 Tonight having added the very popular Pinterest buttons to the photos on this blog I thought I would share how I did it with you.
 
 There are many creative people out there with fabulous blogs that are probably the same as me and spend hours googling to find out how to do teccie things on their blogs! 
 
 
Having been googling for hours tonight and reading goodness knows how many tutorials with many what seemed hugely complicated HTML things to do I finally fell upon, you guessed it, a wonderful blog written by a woman, in woman terminology, Code it Pretty
 
Call me biased but men seem to make things seem more complicated!
 
Everything I wanted to do on my blog was here, it was so easy to follow.
 
I have to admit when I hit the edit HTML code I always freeze and having had a few disasters in my time I always expect to lose five years of work and my heart is in my throat whilst tweaking away at these computer things!
 
Reassuringly I am told to do a back up of my blog which I dutifully do before making any changes and then with lump still in throat I hit the save HTML template button and view blog, nothing?! 
 
I go through the whole process again and wham the buttons have appeared, I am delighted, another achievement under my belt!
 
Do head over to Code it Pretty if you want Pin It´s on each photo on your blog it really is very easy.
