What a wonderful weekend

Such a lovely weekend. It’s a wonderful thing to be able to mix business and pleasure together and this weekend I was able to, and loved it!

I had the pleasure of being able to go and support a wonderful charity event that was organised on behalf of a stunning and strong little girl who is fighting Leukemia as I type. There are many inspirational people in life and little Isla truly is one of them, at 5 years old, she still caries a smile whilst battling the horrible disease. I can only imagine her smiles and happiness continues to give her family strength as it’s an emotional journey that no one should have to go through. Well done to all involved and it was a real pleasure to be part of something that is such a worthy cause.

I hope you raised plenty of money, and I hope the fantastic charity CLIC Sargent continues to be supported for the great work they do.

I also had the pleasure of taking part in the Lumbers Wedding Event on Saturday, to all who came, it was lovely to see you and I’m sure you managed to find rings in the 2000 or so that were there to look through! Well done Lumbers and we are looking forward to many more wonderful events.

We hope you all had a lovely weekend and have a great start to the week ahead! x

I do love what I do and the reason I do it, so thought it was about time that I shared something very special (well it is for me anyway!) I have a lot of friends in this industry and we all know how hard it can be at times, there is someone very special to me that keeps me going and makes me smile even more when they tell me how much they love something I have made, or styled, that would be Eve, well actually Eve Lily.

At the start of the year I decided to do a photo shoot of me and my daughter in a little tongue in cheek Audrey style. This was supposed to be a 30 minute mini shoot, so I could involve Eve in what I do and show what Eve Lily is all about at the same time. This didn’t quite pan out as Eve as always just got into the spirit of things and took over, with a little encouragement from Sarah and so the timings went to pot. It was such a fun shoot and we really did get in the spirit of it all.

Eve Lily Wedding Show – The City Rooms Leicester

Wow, what a wonderful location for our latest show, we really had a wonderful time hosting another brilliant show with wonderful guests and some of the best suppliers around.

The City Rooms really gave our show a touch of class, and enabled us to really show off our catwalk, suppliers and our own styling ideas and designs. We will certainly be hosting another one with the fabulous venue so we will keep you updated, along with our other wedding shows that we will be hosting over the next year. It’s not easy finding the perfect supplier for your wedding, we know that, however, we really do have some of the best creative, professional suppliers available so do come and meet them and see for yourself if you missed it this time around, don’t miss it next time.

Here are some stunning pictures taken by the wonderful and very talented Sarah Salotti of our fantastic catwalk and outside The City Rooms, the models did such a wonderful job showing off the absolutely beautiful dresses, provided by Sarah from Giling & White and really did wow our guests.
