Win a Week’s Worth of Prizes with Flourish & Prosper and a Place at The F&P Wedding Academy!

florish and prosper the wedding academy7

One of my favourite things to do is speaking at events. As someone who used to suffer from crippling stage fright (and would avoid public speaking at all costs in school) this has been nothing but a surprise to me, let me tell you! But once you get over the anxiety, it really is super fun!

Which is why I was thrilled when the babes at Flourish and Prosper asked me to be involved their workshop, The Wedding Academy. This is the first business workshop specifically aimed at people in the wedding industry, and I for one can’t wait to attend!

The idea was dreamt up by two wedding industry heavyweights; stylist and editor of the b.loved wedding blog Louise Beukes, and wedding planner Jessie Thomson. Their inaugural one-day workshop is being held on the 1st November at Icetank, in London.

There will be speakers from all areas of the wedding industry. I’ll be chatting about how you can build a loyal audience of potential clients using your blog and social media, developers Swash and Fold will be discussing SEO, wedding planner Pocketful of Dreams will be covering marketing, and Sweetpea PR are talking about – what else – PR.

Erin from Ward Williams Creative, an expert in accounting for creative businesses, will be showing you simple ways to keep on top of your accounts, while business mentor Jenny Hyde, bridesmaid dress designer Maids to Measure and Emmy Shoes will be sharing business stories, lessons and advice!

Gala, Shauna and I will also be doing a live Q&A session where we’ll answer as many blogging and business questions as we can live on stage. Finally, you’ll leave at the end of the night with an army of new blogging BFFs and a bulging goodie bag full of treats!

Now what could be better that that?!

The mixer is being held at the glorious The Roost in Dalston, London and goes from 6.30 – 9.30pm. This event is only open to those over 18. Tickets to this one-time extravaganza are priced at $100 (around £60) but today I’m giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets for you and a friend!

WIN Your Wedding Dress from Flaunt It by Fur Coat No Knickers!

Fur Coat No Knickers Flaunt It Group 16

It’s no secret that I am a Fur Coat No Knickers super fan. Laura and Emma are the purveyors of the friendliest bridal boutique in the country. No joke, these babes are some of the nicest human beings you will ever meet.

For years now they’ve been the go-to store for vintage wedding dresses, and in 2013 they expanded their range to include made to measure designs. All lovingly handmade in Britain, they wanted to be able to help every bride, whatever her shape or size. They love their vintage gowns, but with vintage sizing being stingy at the best of times, it was really hard for them to cater to anyone over a size 12.

Washington DC based wedding photographer Rachel Couch of A Muse Photography loves nothing more than working with couples on their wedding day. “I also do a fair amount of fashion and lifestyle work”, she writes, “and I really value my ability to shoot within several different genres since it makes me look at everything with fresh eyes. ‘Magical realism’ is the name of the game — I try to create photographs that are both epic and cinematic, but also honest and intimate.”
