So the sun is shining, it’s Friday and looks like we are set for a lovely weekend of weather which is great as it just so happens that its my birthday on Monday. I’m excited to have a girlie weekend away in the sun in a rare weekend off.

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.
Bye bye to 2012……..which ended in a wedding whirlwind, it was our best year yet with some fantastic weddings and lovely clients, plus a Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed birthday party!

I decided to say thank you to all my friends who have been a part of Eve Lily from the start, family, friends and lovely suppliers (who are now friends) from the wedding industry plus my wonderful clients, past and present.
It was a lovely night, held at the stunningly beautiful City Rooms in Leicester. If you know the venue then you will be aware that it’s just a perfect ballroom to hold such an event, if you don’t, then I suggest you take a peek. I was lucky to have the wonderful Rebecca and her band perform some beautiful songs, including Moon River of course!
Themed as Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the guys looked very swish whilst the girls made such a wonderful effort by either looking glam or arriving dressed as Audrey, just perfect! Obviously I had to make an effort being the host and so I played dress up and tried my hardest to become Audrey for the night, with the help of my good friend Beth from Bettie Lottie Make Up of course. I even had a birthday cake which as you can see it was just beautiful, courtesy of the lovely Melody from Melody Cakes.
