Well, it’s been a week that I will always remember…
Winning the award for Best Wedding Flowers category at the Wedding Blog Awards has been the highlight of my year so far.
And I’m still on a bit of a high! Thank you so much for your continuing stream of congratulations…
Here’s what I’ve been up to…
It was an office day, apart from in the evening when I went to a new Creative Photography evening class nearby.
And the subject of ‘being different‘ was very much part of our lesson…thinking outside of the box and taking images from different angles.
I woke up with a mixture of excitement and nervousness, knowing that the awards were that evening at The Ritz London.
It was a day in the office…and I spent a large part of it replying to all the emails, texts, telephone calls, messages on Flowerona, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
On Thursday, I went to the Tallulah Rose Flower School in Bath to train the students on ‘Social Media for Florists’.
I had such a wonderful day and it was lovely to see Rachel, the founder of the school, and meet her students…Rachael, Mary and Clara.
During the day, I was in the office. Then, in the evening, I went to the Preview Night of ‘Brides the Show’.
It’s a new wedding show which is taking place in conjunction with Brides magazine.
It will be open today and tomorrow at Battersea Park in London. So, if you’re planning your wedding, I highly recommend paying it a visit.
You can find out more details on the Brides the Show website.
