I have been planning weddings since I was a teenager. I worked in my mother's fabric shop on Saturdays when most of the customers were bridal parties ranging from the 'can you copy this picture of a dress' through to 'I have no idea what I want, can you help me with ideas' brides. We've had catty sisters-in-law, overbearing mothers, bored bridesmaids and really sweet grooms (and everything in between).
The reign of the internet has now changed how you can plan and research your wedding and there are thousands of sites out there discussing locations, styles, themes, favours and STDs (that's Save-The-Dates to the uninitiated!)... When surfing recently, though, I found there was no one site for weddings in the UK in rural locations. No central directory for barns, fields and licenced sites that aren't hotels or stately homes. And nowhere offering advice as to extra precautions required in those situations: flies, marquees, rain and so forth.
And so, without further ado, I would like to introduce you to my new (third!) site: A Countryside Wedding.
Let me know what you think and I hope to see you and your friends dropping by there sometimes to look at the pretty flowers and dresses!
