Yes even I’m saying to myself ‘Welcome Back!’ It sure has been somewhat a crazy month in the world of planning so I took a little time away from blogging. But I do have a lot to tell you. First of all, since my last post… we have welcomed into our family, baby nephew Harry. He’s now 3 weeks old and is just the sweetest little one you could meet. Paul and I couldn’t wait too long when he was first born and at the grand old age of 3 hours… we had our first cuddle! Huge congratulations to my sweet sister and brother-in-law.
Congratulations Elisabeth + Mark!
Oh my, they really are one of the sweetest couples you could meet and when we very first met back in 2011, I knew instantly I would so look forward to their wedding day. Elisabeth and Mark tied the knot in an outdoor ceremony here in Derbyshire, and they had the most wonderful handmade and woodland style day. Elisabeth worked so hard in all the details, from outdoor floral arches, homemade jam favours, individual burnt names on tree slices for their guests… and so, so much more … I really cannot wait to see their photos! We did have a little catch up before they headed off on to their honeymoon – so a little wave from me in my office all the way to you both across the other side of the sunny world! More on Elisabeth and Mark’s wedding when we see their pro pics … I’m already very excited to see them too!
Wedding Gallery Update
If you remember, back in April I co-ordinated a very stylish wedding in Birmingham. Amy and Andy tied the knot at The Electric Cinema followed by Afternoon Tea at Hotel du Vin and a beautiful Evening Reception at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery… well, I’m delighted to say I’ve now updated my gallery page of their stunning day – An Intimate + Stylish Affair – go see… it’s a must.
Thrumpton Hall Design + Shoot
Without giving too much away right now, below are some shots I took of make-up artist Collette Thorpe and hair stylist Louise Ingman, working super hard behind the scenes at a recent shoot I worked on with a team of most fabulous and creative wedding peeps. It was a most pretty woodland shoot and having seen the final shots by Nottinghamshire based photographer Lee Garland, my sweet readers, I promise you, you are in for a treat. More to come soon!!
Queens Jubilee at Epsom Ladies Day
Well it sure does seem a lifetime ago since we celebrated the Queen’s Jubilee. Did you have fun celebrating this remarkable event? The media was full of amazing captures of what was taking place around the UK and I have to admit, I too had a great weekend starting at Epsom Ladies Day. A fun day with my husband and friends, we had a flutter on the horses, fantastic atmosphere, lovely food, all day champagne… and not forgetting our contribution to charity along the way.
Well, that is all from me for now. I’m back in the office tomorrow doing what a wedding planner does for more of my lovely clients… take care for now and I hope to find more time to bring you more wedding news and inspirations right here on my blog. Much love… Carms Xx
