Whoa, that was a long title hey? And then I followed it with a huge typography-filled image. I probably broke a whole load of blogging rules there…ah well…

First up, behold, this little video preview of the talk I gave at The Mark Niemierko Academy for wedding planners at The Dorchester Hotel (!) this month. Now obviously I said more than just what’s in the video, but it had to be edited down to take out my swears …whoops…and I didn’t want to give the whole farm away for free (so to speak!) so if you’re a wedding planner be sure to consider booking on the next course to hear some more!

For those of you that missed out and would be interested in learning the tricks of the wedding planning trade from the best (Mark) and his team of guest speakers – the last course included talks from editor of Cosmo Bride Magazine Miranda Eason, cake maker extraordinaire Peggy Porschen, florist Rob Van Helden and celebrity make-up artist Maggie Hunt (and erm…me!) – then be sure to check out the next events, to be held on the 4th – 8th July and the 3rd – 7th October.

Each course is limited to 10 participants, allowing the students an intimate and exclusive learning experience.  The course fee is priced at £1,950. To register for visit
