Apologies, first of all, for the radio silence. It’s been far too long since I’ve blogged and it’s partly because this summer was my busiest ever for weddings, hen parties and special occasion makeups, as well as a few adverts and photo shoots. There wasn’t much time to sit down with a cup of tea and write a blog post.
One of the downsides of being freelance is unpaid holidays, making time off a guilt-ridden experience and I hadn’t taken any time off work since last Christmas. Weekends and bank holidays are especially busy for me so while everyone else is enjoying a rest I’m rushing from one appointment to another. By the end of September work fatigue was definitely kicking in!
So with my boyfriend Max, I flew off to Croatia for a bit of (very) late summer sun. We visited Dubrovnik, Split and the beautiful island of Vis, and that was where Max surprised me by proposing! After nine years of working with brides on their special days, it’s going to be my turn to be a bride! Which brings me to the second reason I’ve not blogged for a while – I’ve been spending far too much time wedding planning on Pinterest.
It’s been lovely to share the news with my clients, who’ve been giving me advice and planning tips. I’m so excited and can’t wait to get started. So watch this space!
