The rest of the month has been full of client meetings, finalising plans and those last few details for their weddings this year. Some couples I have been working with since mid-2014, so I'm really very excited to see our plans to come to life in just a few short months!
I have been so lucky that I have received so many amazing applications in response to the position I have available for a summer work experience Assistant. I've been quite overwhelmed by just how many people would love to come and work with me to experience some beautiful real weddings this summer. I'll be scheduling some quality time next week to sit down and read through every single application and CV, before inviting a shortlist of candidates to a Skype interview. Sometimes working in this industry can be a little lonely, especially when working from home most of the week, so I can't wait to share this amazing experience with someone else who is as passionate about creating knockout weddings as much as I am!
Family & Friends
I enjoyed an afternoon and evening in London with some of my closest friends at the beginning of April, to celebrate my best friend turning 30 in June. I know it's a bit early...but my hectic wedding season means I sadly won't have time to celebrate with her in June, and of course, any excuse for a glass of bubbles or two! We had a lovely dinner at The Ivy Chelsea Garden (their Chocolate Bombe dessert is to die for.....!), followed by cocktails and dancing in at Jaks.
I stole some time with my 2 year old daughter when we had some great weather a few weeks ago (doesn't that feel like forever ago already....?!), and we had a walk and picnic in Christchurch Meadows in Oxford, which was just the loveliest day. Being self employed, I still find it hard to effectively manage my time between family and my business, so it's really lovely to spend quality time with Bella and take a break from emails and phone calls!
