Morning everyone, I am officially back at work but have done some urgent consultations for couples over the last week or so.
I would not call this a blog, but more of a reflection of the past years.
I have worked in the wedding industry for the past 3 years as more of a events dresser but also doing a little co-ordinating. In 2015 a couple were having their wedding at Clawson Lodge and asked me to get involved with the co-ordinating, which of course I said yes to. Clawson Lodge is a beautiful venue, but mainly run by volunteers. The volunteers were lovely but had never done the upto date weddings of today. The wedding went without a hitch and they realised that I would fit right in with them as their official Wedding Co-ordinator, I was over the moon,as well as the dressing I realised that I enjoyed the co-ordinating even more. I have had my ups and downs and learnt alot along the way. I have co-ordinated a fair few weddings now and enjoyed every moment of them, especially working with the couples so closely getting to know them, their likes and dislikes, knowing that they can discuss anything with me, even if it is not wedding related, best of all I become their friend.
Some brides say to me " do I get any bridezillas" the answer is no, every girl from a early age imagines getting married to their prince and theses brides know what they want and don't want. These brides you just have to spend more time with, getting to know them alittle more. Every couple deserves to have the Perfect Wedding.
As alot of you will know I work very closely with my Daughter Emily from Em'z Flower Boutique who in my eye's is a fantastic florist, we have done a lot of weddings together over the past few years, she is a natural and was born to work with flowers. Her work is unique in every way and that's why I think brides love her wedding flowers and this is why she has decided to concentrate on being a wedding florist, it's where her heart is and a job she loves.
What are my hopes for the future, well I have so many, to carry on doing what I do best and love but to incorporate more wedding co-ordination, maybe working with some new venues and organising more wedding fayres.
My biggest hope is to some day have and run my own Wedding Venue, this is of course a dream, but lets see what the future holds!!
Most of all I am looking forward to working with every couple who are with me this year, to help and guide them through the mind field of planning a wedding, and I know I can clearly say I will always give 100% and more. To make their wedding day a memorial day to remember like I have done past couples.
