My first stand at a wedding fair!

It's been a busy few weeks again, working and wedding plans etc. Also doing some bits and pieces for my Whimsical Wishes Wedding stationery. I set myself a challenge this past week I booked a stand at a local wedding fair to exhibit my wedding stationery!!

I only had just over a week to plan and prepare, so no pressure then
! Then Adrian was in a car accident, someone went into the back of him on the M1, thankfully he is OK, although has a bad case of whiplash! Those of you that have followed my blog for a while will know we were in an accident just over a year ago and had bad whiplash then too. His car is a write off, so he is dealing with that now. I also got a bout of sinusitis which I could have done without, but never mind!

Anyway I managed to get some samples together and plan my
stand, it turned out quite well, I had lots of interest and compliments on my stand and stationery. I had more ideas and things I wanted to do but ran out of time, however I really enjoyed it and now have something to build upon! It was nice chatting to so many lovely brides to be.

Here are some picture of my stand, the first two are courtesy
of Richard Plastow of that's life photography, thank you for sending these over to me Rich, much appreciated.






The next photo's I took with my humble camera!











You can see my lovely friend Gemma in the above photo's, she gave up her day to help me and keep me company, thanks for your support Gem, it is much appreciated!

I will be posting individual photo's of the new samples I've done on here and my Facebook page over the next few days and also adding pages on here with information regarding enquiring about or ordering wedding stationery from me, so please check back if you are interested!

Thank you for visiting!
