Happy New Year!! Coming up on the English Wedding Blog…

Good morning, beautiful! How was your New Year? And do you have any resolutions, wedding-related ones perhaps? We started the year off with a walk around our local nature reserve yesterday and we’re determined to spend as much time outdoors as we can this year! Otherwise, my main resolution is to be better. I’m keeping it simple – I love my work and my life, so I plan to keep doing what I’m doing… my only resolution is to do everything just that little bit better. How about you? Come and join me over on Facebook this morning and share your resolutions for 2018 – I’d love to hear them!
