Thursday Treats: You Make My Dreams Come True

August 7, 2014


I’ve spent the past couple of weeks in London, Berlin and Amsterdam, teaching Blogcademy workshops and exploring everything these wonderful places have to offer. It has been a pretty crazy time including two workshops in London, followed by our first mixer event, a class in Berlin, another in Amsterdam – oh and a couple of photo shoots thrown in for good measure!

I’ll be writing a full travel guide posts for Berlin and Amsterdam, as well as recap posts for all the events, but for now, I thought I’d let you in one some of the madness with this fun little video that we put together for you!

Oh Europe, you sure did show us a damn good time. Gala and Shauna left on Tuesday morning, and as much as it sucks to say goodbye, I sure am happy to be back with Gareth and my kitties. I really did miss them a lot this time round.

Here’s to staying out of airports for a couple of months…!

Come and hear me speak!

Before we crack on with the usual Thursday Treaty goodness, I’ve been invited to speak at a TON of events this year and so I wanted to give you a quick run down in case you wanted to come along to any of them!

♥ On 18th September I’m guest speaking at the Photography Farm Elements class in London all about how wedding photographers can use their blogs to get more of the clients they really want to work with.

♥ I’m so excited to be heading to Cologne, Germany in October to be the key note speaker at Hochzeitskongress, a business workshop for wedding industry professionals! 

♥ I’m also appearing at the Flourish and Prosper Wedding Academy on November 1st in London. I’ll be speaking about social media and blogging for wedding professionals.

PHEW! OK on with the show…
