On the 11th April, the threatened rain disappeared and the sun shone for our Luxe Botanical Styled Shoot at the beautiful location of the Hacienda Nadales in Malaga. The week leading up to the styled shoot was spent constantly checking my phone weather app but was reassured by Jeremy with his very hi-tech swirling cloud app it would be fine, and it was

I couldn´t be happier as we woke up to blue skies and sunshine.

As we draw a close to 2018 I love to take time to reflect not just on my business, but my life, as they are totally connected.

I adore what I do, so for me, it isn’t work, it is me, I live and breathe what I do each day. Anyone that knows me personally says this and often tells me to take a break! The only time I do is at Christmas as I am like an excited child and just love this time of year! Give me glitter and fairy lights and I am in heaven!

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…)
