Thank you – and an introduction for new brides to all the lovely folks who make the English Wedding Blog so special!

Happy Tuesday everyone! The last few days have been a whirlwind – our modern calligraphy workshop on Friday was brilliant, and I’ve been tidying up and reconnecting with the blog over the last couple of days. Meeting our lovely students on Friday made me think about all of the wonderful people I’ve met over the last few years, especially those who’ve played a part in making the English Wedding Blog a success. I wanted to take a little time today for some matchmaking, and to say thank you at the same time.

Without these amazing people, the English Wedding Blog just wouldn’t be around. They’re my friends; sponsors and supporters of the blog – and each one has been handpicked to play an active part on the blog because I’m a big fan of what they do. I love independent businesses; I’m a fan of wedding suppliers who are truly passionate and dedicated in their work. I will be thrilled if you take a little time this morning to discover some of this lovely lot – maybe even get in touch, see if they’re available on your day? You won’t regret it!Claire
