Busy, busy, busy...

Wow - it's been such a long time since we posted on our blog.... and feeling everso slightly guilty that we've not managed to keep it up to date...* blush*. Having said that, things really have been so incredibly manic recently that there just don't seem to be enough hours, doing our day to day stuff, without managing to type a running commentary as well : )

We Mooks have been rushed off our feet, what with the summer wedding season in full swing, we've also moved house and business premises - from Marlow to the East Midlands - PLUS we've also just exhibited, for the first time, at the National Wedding Show at the NEC... PHEW!

As it was our first show, it took an awful lot of planning and worrying, but we're really happy to confirm that it went amazingly well and the feedback from our clients has been absolutely fantastic!

As well as meeting past and potential customers, it was also a great opportunity to meet our friends from Wedding Ideas and Perfect Wedding magazines! So lovely to meet the girls that we regularly speak to, and finally put faces to names etc!

Also a really good opportunity to meet other wedding suppliers and fellow stationers within the industry! Such lovely camaraderie between everyone, that they made the 3 days (plus the set-up day) pass really quickly!

One business that we think our brides will love is 'Your Wonderwall'. Lovely Allie, who runs the company, kept us amused (and sane) over the weekend! They had also just done the London leg of the show, the week before, so the fact that she was so full of energy and humour was pretty impressive!

A 'wonderwall' is a beautifully personalised montage of your favourite photos, telling a story of a special someone or occasion.

In short, they will take the pictures trapped on your PC, in albums and boxes, and then turn them into a large showpiece for your home.

Just give them your photos- either professional or amateur - and their design team turn them into contemporary wall art. All are available in a choice of stunning glass frames or on canvas.

We were really impressed by the concept, but also by the frames that they are supplied in! The vintage style frames would be absolutely perfect for our wedding seating plans! The frames come in lots of different finishes, but our favourites, by far, are the black or ivory classic frames... they'd look stunning with one of our Rambling Rose or Damask wedding table plans in!

We're taking a breather for a couple of weeks then gearing up for all of the Christmas weddings that are coming up, but we shall definitely be exhibiting at next years shows... it may take another 6 months to recover from this last one, but hopefully by next Autumn, we'll be all set to do it again!

Hopefully speak to you soon (we'll try to make it a little sooner than last time...!) X
