Hi April, could you firstly tell WWW readers a little bit about you?

 

Hi, I’m April and I am the face behind BlueBird Wedding Stationery.

I am based in beautiful rural Herefordshire, and currently work on my own with a little help from my lovely husband.

With a background and a degree in Graphic Design, and an extremely artistic family I always knew I would love to create unique and beautiful designs for people in one way or another.

What do you love/dislike about your job?

 

I love being a part of the most special day in a person’s life. I only wish I could be there on the day as well to see it all come together! I envy photographers for that!

I love creating something unique for a client, it’s a lovely feeling when brides are thrilled with the results and receiving great feedback is brilliant motivation.

Hate is a difficult one, I do hate the endless sales calls… but that’s about it!

How did you get into the wedding industry?

 

I got married in 2011 to my wonderful husband; this was my first experience of wedding invitation design, I loved it and received so many compliments from my guests from the design. Soon after I started work at a local printers and designed many different kinds of wedding invitations for customers. However I couldn’t shake the feeling that I wanted more time and freedom to share my ideas and love for the wedding industry in my own unique way. I also really missed planning my own wedding and couldn’t wait to get back into the wedding scene.

Outdoor Rustic Home Made Autumn Wedding
14.04.2014

Outdoor Autumn Norfolk Wedding http://myfabulouslife.co.uk/

 

Happy Monday lovelies, I hope you had a wonderful happy weekend. To ease you back into the week I have a gorgeous love filled celebration to share with you.

Catherine and Daniel had a cosy outdoor Autumn wedding back in November. They opted for an outdoor ceremony beside the lake under a leafy arch at Narbourgh Hall Gardens. Norfolk.

I so love the rustic and warm feel to their day. With natural blooms, grasses and pumpkins decorating the tables alongside brown paper stationery.

Catherine had the most beautiful gown by Templerly which she teamed with Jenny Packham accessories. While Daniel donned tweed, the maids wore sequins and their son looked so adorable in a flat cap.

Thanks to the wonderful My Fabulous Life Photography for sharing their lovely imagery today.

Ramblings
Portrait Shoot Style. Sunday Ramble
13.04.2014

I have been in the wedding industry now for almost 4 years, but have only ever had a proper professional photo shoot done for me once in that time. A combination of shyness and anxiety issues mean I avoid such situations hehe.

But I have booked in this week to have some professional shots taken for my new about page. My lovely friend is shooting, so that eases my nerves BUT I have no clue what to wear. It has made me remember just how I felt back at our own engagement shoot and making sure I felt good about myself in front of the camera. I am also guessing that there may be many of you feeling the exact same right now with your own shoots planned.

I have often given advice for styling and outfits on shoots, but when it comes to my own I don’t seem to be able to apply said theory. It perhaps doesn’t help that I have a mini bump and I am not quite sure how to style it, and my skin recently has felt pretty rubbish.

Anyway, here are my outfit options for the shoot (I hope they still fit hehe!!)

Look 1

 

One of my favourite trusty frocks, knee length and flattering. I love the bold graphic pattern which I think could work well in images. I have to wear my favourite shoes, my beloved clogs with this dress I think.

 

Shoot Style

Topshop dress & Lotta From Stockholm clogs.

Look 2

 

For a more feminine Spring feel I feel great in this floral dress I got for a wedding last year, which I am thinking can be dressed up with my sparkle heels. (more…)

Growing flowers and having your own allotment is surging in popularity in the UK. With owning my first garden this summer I am experimenting with growing vegetables and I thought it would be fun to try and grow some cut flowers.

To begin with I am sharing the flowers I have chosen and how I sowed my seeds…
