Three Years Old & A Fresh, New Website!


Last week my gorgeous new website launched, featuring the stunning 1950s fairground images shot last summer by photographer Gemma Reynolds at Preston Court in Kent with the uber talented EndZone Image taking care of the hair and make-up. It was such a wonderful experience to have access to such a beautiful venue that it really didn't feel like work at all! Thanks also to Preston Court's Anna for keeping the husband occupied with a quad bike, it made his day!

I've been so busy with the Cosmo Bride/ Luella's Boudoir Fair and getting ready for the first May wedding that I didn't get the opportunity to record the event for you, but you can read a fabulous review by Katie Antoniou over on the Love My Dress Blog.

Happy Birthday Grant-Riley Weddings!
