Planning a wedding is exciting and can be utterly overwhelming at times. There’s a reason why wedding planners exist: bringing beautiful occasions to life takes endless hours of hard work and meticulous event management. I’ve always had a huge admiration for those wonderful humans who make planning weddings their career.
I’ve known Bernadette Chapman from the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners since before the English Wedding Blog even began. I know she’s an absolute professional, a true expert in her field and someone who is extremely dedicated to her work. If I had an important question about planning a wedding she is the first person I would ask.
I meet the loveliest humans sometimes – and today I’m here to tell you all about somebody who I’ve discovered is especially special! (If that wasn’t already a thing, it needs to be!) It takes a lot to manage a successful wedding business: superhuman dedication; insane organisational skills; creativity and above all kindness, empathy and that certain something which makes someone a real “people person”. When I did a quick introduction to Michelle from Elegante by Michelle J on the English Wedding insta and on our facebook page last week, the replies I got told me a LOT about this amazing lady. The reviews on her website do likewise; and while I haven’t met Michelle in person, I just know she’s something special.
Good morning lovely! Were you spoilt on Valentine’s Day? I do hope so 🙂 If you’re new here – as V-Day is pretty popular for proposals! – welcome!! I’m thrilled to meet you and I hope you love following the English Wedding Blog. You’ll find us on social too – we share daily inspiration on Facebook and on our Instagram too.
I’m really excited to introduce you to lovely Siobhan of By Siobhan Louise – a talented lady who can help make your wedding dreams come true. Siobhan’s styling is second to none, and the advice on her website is brilliant. She’s the newest member of the English Wedding blog, and you’ll find her on our Directory pages under Planners & Stylists. Siobhan – welcome!
It’s December, time for festive cheer! So, it probably feels a little strange that today I’m bringing you a piece titled ‘wedding day regrets’ but bear with me, I promise it will be worth it!
Nothing saddens me more than listening to the words “if I could do it all again I wish I would have…” and, if you are a 2018 bride to be heading into the year of your wedding, you have the wonderful luxury of time and the fabulous opportunity that comes with it to avoid those wedding day regrets I hear about too often.
