National Wedding Show
Well in-case you’ve been wondering why I’ve been so quiet lately…it’s been because I’ve spent most of every minute of every day preparing for this…the National Wedding Show….I’ve quite literally been living, eating, sleeping and dreaming it…!!! I have to say it was a strange mixture of emotions on Friday morning when I stood back and managed at last to admire my stand….seeing my vision for my brand, all come together in front of me like that was very satisfying!!! 🙂 I can’t begin to tell you the effort and hours that every little detail took, as it is impossible to explain……just seeing it all there, knowing how much love and effort had gone into it all, was surprisingly emotional though.
Now, at the risk of sounding like some kind of cheesy Oscar-esque type speech, I have a few public thank yous I want to make…hehe!
Firstly, I have to start with a MASSIVE hug and much love to my long suffering husband these past few weeks, who did so much I can’t even begin to list it…!!! Also, a HUGE thankyou to my mother in law and father in law who painstakingly cut and tied pretty much every single piece of ribbon around my 1000+ leaflets….and all the other bits that went into that (anyone who knows me knows it was not just a simple leaflet! oh no!!! hehe), and the rest including the mad dash at the eleventh hour to save the stand (you know what you did…!!! hehe). Ditto to my brother in law and sister in law…! And finally, big hugs to my friends Emily and Martin who helped out on the stand and behind the scenes to again, make everything run so smoothly….! (Emily the 6.5 hour car journey home on Saturday night was one I will never forget and a true bonding experience – hehe!).
Ooooh and another few thanks to my lovely ‘stand-neighbours’ who made the whole show a truly enjoyable experience – the wonderfully talented singer and thoroughly lovely guy Andy Johnson, the gorgeous Liz and Matt from Think White Review and Hummingbird Bakery for sharing your delicious Cupcakes at the end of each day! Also, lovely to see a few of my future ‘bride to be’s’ there – Nikki, Natalie, Claire and Gayle…hope you got some fab inspiration for your wedding day!
And last but not least, HUGE thanks to all you lovely people who took the time to stop, look and chat to me – oooh and of course those of you who decided to book me….! You made the whole experience worthwhile 🙂
Ooooh, and keep your eyes peeled for the finalists of my WIN your DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY competition (entrees only accepted at the NWS itself) – to be announced shortly!!! They need your help to win….
