You’re not just marrying your fiancé….. you’re marrying into his or her family and it’s in everyone’s interest if you purposefully focus on building a positive relationship with them.
I was on the internet last week and read a post on a wedding photography forum which got me thinking. The post was from a wedding photographer in the North East who mentioned that he’d been due to photograph an engagement shoot but had received a rather fraught sounding email from the Groom to be asking if he could cancel his engagement shoot as ‘it just seems like more hassle’.
Happy 2013 everyone! My name is Jessie and I’m a wedding planner _ stylist based in the Cotswolds. I’m a regular guest blogger here on LoveLuxe but also have my own little blog where you can read my musings about life and work in Gloucestershire!
To kick off the new year I decided to write a very personal post about my own wedding experience, in the hope that it might lift and give hope to others finding themselves in a similar situation. As a wedding planner I am often helping couples to navigate family disagreements – like christenings and funerals, weddings tend to bring out both the best and the worst in people – and sadly there are also times where I’m asked to help couples find meaningful ways to honour lost loved ones on their special day.
Hello! I’m Emily and I’m delighted to have been invited to join the LoveLuxe blog to talk about fun activities and celebrations for children. Today I am here to talk about taking children to an art gallery, some ideas of what to do when you are there, and creating artwork inspired by your visit with them afterwards.
Sometimes in life things don’t work out how you think they’re going to. You don’t know it at the time and when the man I had married 18 months before left me, simply not coming home from work one night, it felt like my world had ended. It happened to me 10 years ago and I didn’t see it coming. As life seemed to crash down around me and I entered a whole new phase of solicitors, divorce proceedings, tears and total devastation, it was my big sister who I’d not been that close to previously who got me through it with unswerving support, advice and realism.
