Helping my sister plan her wedding is taking over my life! OK, I’m totally kidding, but I have thrown myself wholeheartedly into the process. The first port of call has been finding a suitable venue, and goodness isn’t that bit hard? We’ve been looking high and low for somewhere to host a festival style wedding around Berkshire/ Oxfordshire that doesn’t cost the earth and isn’t already booked up for next Summer and it’s proving tricky, but we’ll get there! I found the whole venue finding thing the hardest part of planning our wedding so I guess nothing’s changed there. If you too are having a venue search nightmare, I feel your pain!

In less stressful news, don’t forgot you have until Sunday to enter to win a pair of tickets to the National Wedding Show in London. The prize also includes VIP access to my Q&A and the meet and greet, plus you’ll get to take home a signed copy of Rock n Roll Bride magazine. All you have to do to enter is comment on the post completing the sentence “I’m a Rock n Roll Bride because…” easy!

I hope you’ve had a good week. Here are some extra lovely things to occupy your brain for a while…

  1. Loved the anniversary gifts link.Just coming up to first year anniversary and the slightly odd hubby loves stationary so that’s that sorted.

    I’m a rock n roll bride because I’m not afraid to hide away who I really am. In a world so consumed with following the herd, I’ve fought long and hard to find who I really am and let that shine through. The same goes with our wedding, we are able to stand up for what we want even if it sways away from “the norm”. X
