Hello! I've put together my first YouTube haul video featuring all the bits I've bought ready for when Ian and I go on our honeymoon to Tenerife in August! I can't wait. Sun, sea and sand here we come!
I'd love to see any of your Summer or holiday hauls, please feel free to leave me your links.
Hello. I hope you've all had a great weekend? My blog turns one this month and what a year its been! I feel like I've really grown, not only as a blogger but as a person too. You can take a peak at my very first post here. Blogging has really helped to boost my confidence in so many ways and given me a focus. When I first started out I was terrified at the thought of doing YouTube videos or going on blogger meets but that's all changed. I'd like to say a big thank you to all my followers and readers for the support and encouragement you have given me over the past year! I've meet so many wonderful people through blogging and hope to meet many more along the way.
So what's next? Well one goal I want to set myself is defiantly to blog more. I don't want to blog everyday but I do want to try and aim for more than once a week, ha! I'm also considering introducing a new photography series on my blog? Now my Journey to Wifehood series is nearly at its end I really want to add another mini focus. I'm by no means a pro when it comes to cameras but I'd love for you to follow me on my learning journey.
If there are any more posts you'd like to see than I'd love to hear from you!
We had such a lovely day, the sun was shinning and everything went to plan. It was such an amazing adventure and was over in a flash. I'm so grateful to all my family and friends for their help and support and for taking part in our special day. I was so calm and organised the morning of the wedding but as soon as I was ready for the ceremony the emotions hit me and it was deep breaths and tissues from then on. Ian even had a little blubbery moment while saying his vows, awww! My sister-in-law and brother also suprised me and Ian which a picture of Mia our cat on the top table which was so thoughtful.
Our photographer was Chris Chambers and he was amazing, we have so many wonderful photos to remember our wedding for years to come! I successfully managed to dance to Gangman Style in my wedding dress and flash my photography while throwing my bouquet, cringe! But Chris did a really good job and editing it out, ha! There are just far too many photos to put in a blog post. Its taken me ages to narrow it down to my favourite ones for the slideshow! Our friends at the Real Music Centre Theatre Company Ian and I are part of produced a lovely instrumental version of Songbird for our ceremony which was simply beautiful! I've used it as the backing music for the slideshow of our wedding photos. I've also included a video of our first dance.
If anyone is in the middle of planning their wedding and wants some info on all the different services and bits we used for our wedding here is a little list. A lot of our wedding was DIY thanks to my creative mum! If you would like anymore info then don't be shy just pop me an email: ClaireLouise.email@example.com
