Super Sunday!

October 9th, 2011 | Julia Braime

Morning all!  It’s been a busy week.  I’ve been a guest of the UK Wedding Shows, a guest of Leafy Couture at the Harewood House wedding evening and a guest speaker at the Forward Ladies Positive Women’s Day in Sheffield, talking about “Blogging For Business”. 

.

If you would like to come along to a similar seminar in the future please contact me to let me know.  If the demand is there I will get something arranged!

.

Today I’m at The Wedding Affair at Newby Hall, Ripon from 12pm – 4pm.  Drop by and say hello!

So, guess what?  This time next week I will have been married for one whole year!  Time really flies (especially when you spent the best part of that year juggling two lives as a lawyer and – if you don’t know the story behind that, click here). 

.

I’m so excited as my lovely hubby is planning on whisking me off for a few days away to a secret location.  How I love him!

I actually have an admission to make – we still haven’t chosen the final edit for our wedding album.  Who would have thought it?  I’m a bad wife (but a good wedding blogger!). 

.

To rectify things, I have decided to devote some blog posts next week to my reflections on a year of marriage, what marriage means, looking back at the past year and my hopes and dreams for the future.  I would absolutely love it if you would chime in with your own comments and help to get some constructive discussion going here on the wedding blog

In the meantime – if you so desire, you can see my wedding pictures here:

It’s not all going to be my personal memoirs though… you’ll also find the usual mix of bridal fashion, real weddings, news and supplier showcases gracing these silver swirly pages, and boy do I have some corking wedding inspiration to share with you, like this bridal shoot that I styled last week at Rockliffe Hall, that’s in today’s Sunday Sun! (North East). The full set to come soon on the wedding blog so just a sneak peek for now…

Super Sunday!

October 2nd, 2011 | Julia Braime

It’s been another crazy weekend here at HQ.  As well as lots of blogging, freelance deadlines and dates with my television set (I schedule my Barlow time like a not to be missed meeting now!) I’ve been exhibiting as a guest of The UK Wedding Shows at Newcastle Racecourse.  I met so many lovely new brides and grooms who just loved the concept of what I am trying to do here on my little wedding blog, and also some fabulous die hard readers.  Girls, I salute you!  If you are visiting for the first time, I’m just about to catch up on what you have missed this week, but first of all, let me tell you about a special soiree coming up later this week.

.

This Thursday evening, I’ll have my lippy on once again and will be ready to meet the lovely ladies of Yorkshire as a guest of Leafy Couture at the Harewood House Wedding Showcase.  I’ll be on hand with loads of insider info, tips and ideas as this amazing venue opens its doors for the evening.  We are also celebrating Leafy Couture’s fifth birthday, so there is sure to be some bubbly involved! 

.

Email brooke.a@harewood.org to receive your exclusive invitation.
