I am afraid this is not a pretty blog post about weddings it is extremely important that anyone in the wedding industry reads this post.

I am concerned about some recent events that have come to my attention and want to share this with everyone who will read my posts.

There have been computer hackers and more alarmingly stalkers trying to meet female wedding planners on their own.

Everyone in this industry needs to be vigilant and aware for their own personal safety, here are just a few of the stories that have been bought to my attention over the past few months. (more…)

It seems a lifetime ago we created this fabulous styled shoot at the Cortijo Pedro Jimenez in Casares.

I have been meaning to blog this for ages as this shoot was in February but March arrived and we were full on with our real weddings.  We had a lovely exciting month of new bookings, client visits, food tastings, suppliers meeting, etc before the Easter holidays.

Sometimes things happen for a reason so I will explain how my new venture that has been in the pipeline for quite a while is finally here :)!

I hope by taking the time to read this you may decide to step out of your comfort zone and see how quickly everything falls into place once you have made that move and truly believe in what you are creating. (more…)

During the Christmas and New Year holiday many couples will become engaged and start thinking about perhaps hosting a destination wedding.

Over the past 10 years Spain has seen a huge increase in destination weddings for a number of reasons. (more…)

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…)

It is very rare and probably never happened before that I have posted such a blog post but I am so angered by this situation so here it is in black and white and for everyone to read in the big wide world of the internet in the hope that word gets out and about of this utterly ruthless couple who are currently plaguing and taking the piss our of our wedding world.  Excuse my French!

Our Wedding World, as we like to call it here, is a very close knit community.  All the venues and suppliers know each other and we are like one big family, with a few exceptions, and we look out for each other.

Together, with Lucy from Boutique Weddings, one of my good friends, we set up a closed Facebook group about 2 years ago,  purely for all the wedding suppliers here in Southern Spain.

This past week Spain has had a heatwave, which is unusual for the middle of June, but temperatures have risen to the 40’s inland and over 30 on the coast.  This, my lovelies, is shade temperature 🙂

Many of my past clients have said to me “don’t worry we have nothing but clouds and rain here and are looking forward to seeing some sunshine and blue skies”.

Well this ain’t pleasant sunshine and blue skies, this is searingly fierce heat, it is like being locked in a sauna for the day!
