Tatton Park Wedding Show 2011

I had a wonderful time this weekend exhibiting at The Tatton Park Wedding Show.
It was a beautiful, dry, cold & lovely sunny weekend and Tatton Park itself is a beautiful Mansion surrounded by wonderful park land with hundreds of roaming Deer.
The show itself was really fabulous, 160 stands of wonderful wedding industry suppliers and lots of visitors.
I really enjoyed the two days exhibiting and I managed to meet some wonderful people.
Here are a few images of my pretty stand at Tatton Park ..... I have been over whelmed by the lovely feedback from the public & other talented wedding industry suppliers regarding how lovely my stand looked ... it means a lot to me after all of the hard work it took to put it all together.
I am just delighted that you all love my style & work as much as I do

Orders of Service ....

Orders of Service can be very daunting for a Bride and Groom who are getting married in a Church...
What hymns to choose, what readings to have, what music to walk down the aisle to ... so many things to sort out and where to start ?
I wanted to share with you all our Order of Service which was so, so pretty.... I just loved it and they looked so pretty sitting in the porch of the gorgeous Babington House Church we got married in, in the little wicker basket.
My Reading was by my favourite heroine .... Carrie Bradshaw .... yes Gorgeous Carrie out of Sex and the City .... and for those of you who are a little stuck on what reading to choose right now maybe you too could consider this as it is simply .....  FABULOUS !!!

Love at First Sight:

His Hello was the end of her endings
Her laugh was their first step down the aisle
His hand would be hers to hold forever
His forever was as simple as her smile
He said she was what was missing
She said instantly she knew
He was a question to be answered
And her answer was "I do"

Our Gorgeous Cotswold Home ....

I am a very lucky Girl in lots of ways .... I have a wonderful life, I love my work, I have a lovely family & home and I have the most wonderful husband in the world.
Andy my husband is a very clever chap in lots of ways .....his work Llama Property Developments, can turn the most derilict of buildings, be it an old barn or very tired looking house, into a true beauty.
This was the case with our Cotswold home, Spring Cottage.
This delightful little cottage is in the heart of the Cotswolds, which is where I am originally from, and is a delightful very old late 15th century cottage which was crying out to be made into a beautiful home.
Very damp, dated and neglected with a very sad looking garden Andy set to work with his fab team on this lovely building and now as you can see from these images he has made it into a beautiful, light and welcoming home.
To see more of what my very clever Andy does go onto his website where you can see more of his fabulous work.
