What seems like ages ago now, our wedding photographer, Dominique Bader, emailed me to tell me that she has submitted our wedding photos to Wedding Magazine and we had been accepted!
I filled out a little questionnaire that they send me asking about details of the wedding including inspiration, outfits, flowers, favourite moment..it was pretty difficult to keep it brief, in fact I think they still had to cut bits out!
A few months later having forgotten all about it, the issue in which we feature as one of their ‘real weddings’, a DIY one at that, the February/March was published…how exciting! The lovely people at Wedding Magazine posted me a free issue for us to keep.
The best thing about featuring though was being able to list names and web addresses of the people that helped us make our wedding, such as the lovely Dominique Bader, Rose Mountague, and Leafy Couture. I hope they get lots of interest from it…they certainly deserve it.
You can see more of Dominique photo’s of our wedding on her blog.
It’s lovely to see that my little tutorials are getting used by lots of brides to be.
Last week saw my Pom Pom tutorial featured in Save the Date Magazine‘s first issue of the year, alongside some other beautiful content. The feature shows all the stages of how to make a Pom Pom, as well as a lovely big picture of our very own wedding, displaying the Pom Poms in all their colourful papery gorgeous-ness.
In October of last year, I took part in my first ever fair – a wedding fair too! Abbi and Lydia, the lovely ladies of Save the Date, invited me to hold a stall at their ‘Wedding Event with a Difference’ fair. After seeing all the crafty things that I had made for my own wedding earlier in June (seems like such a long time ago now!), they thought I would fit right into the fair’s Creative Corner.
The fair was one of the nicest I’ve ever seen with some really unique and individual companies exhibiting, providing great inspiration and ideas for the browsing brides. So I was thrilled when they emailed me just before Christmas to ask if they could feature my tutorial in their magazine.
Whether you are a bride or not, I recommend you take a look at their mag…you can view it online at: http://savethedatemagazine.co.uk/magazine/. There is some really lovely content and beautiful images, and I also hear they are hosting another fair in April which any bride to be would be mad to miss!
