How did you get into bridal blogging? It was pretty natural, I blogged about weddings because at the time, I was planning my own wedding and from what I saw there was not a lot of how-to-do sort of information. As I asked myself questions of what to do, I then applied those learnings to my blog.
Planning a wedding you only get one chance at it, it’s not the kind of thing you can come back next year and re-plan. By me blogging and sharing my knowledge it helped someone get the occasion as right as possible.
What do you love most about weddings? The start of the day watching the preparations as the couple get ready and then the ceremony watching the two people's faces as they first catch glimpses of one another.
What’s the most underrated aspect of any ceremony? How quickly people want to get it over and done with—that more focus is not given to this part of the whole wedding procedure. People are more focused on the decorations, the reception party then the vows and the process of the ceremony.
You’re secret to staying calm under pressure? Organization is the key. If you organize as much as you can early in the planning stages of your wedding day then you won’t stress as much. Do one thing at a time, talk to one person at a time and make everyone and everything else wait until you have accomplished one job at a time.
Most unique wedding you’ve ever featured? Every wedding story I have featured has been special because every person brings some kind of uniqueness to share with the next bride and groom planning their wedding day in the region. But if there is just one photo that I have always remembered, that is the photo of Helen and her nanna together. The way they looked at one another told a beautiful story of love between nanna and granddaughter.
Your number one piece of advice for any blushing bride? Have the courage to say no. If it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it. You don’t want to look back after the day and question why you did what you did.
