Please like me on Facebook or retweet on Twitter!! I know some of you are probably groaning at the sight of another blog post, but I committed to posting once a day for a couple of weeks and that's exactly what I'm going to do (you had the weekend off to recover).
Forgive the shameful Facebook or Twitter mention above, but since the first post I've noticed less 'likes' and retweets. This could be because I've been posting around midnight, or perhaps my posts are rubbish, or maybe people are afraid to 'like' in case they think it makes them look like a social media stalker.......or could it be that if you 'like' the first post you think it absolves you from any future likings and retweetings? Come on people, where's the love? Thank you Mandy for being my most committed 'liker' to date!
Other than on this blog it seems, there is a huge amount that can be learnt by reading blogs and stories of other brides and grooms that have used marquees. And not just marquee pearls of wisdom - there's shoes, dresses, cakes, photographers, table centres and all the other good stuff that makes brides go weak at the knees!
Being involved in weddings is one of the most satisfying jobs a person can have. Viewing our many testimonials and pictures brings a nostalgic smile to the face, and another thing I like doing when in need of a self-indulgent pick-me-up is browsing the many blogs Oakleaf is mentioned on. Here I've put together a selection that I think are not only lovely, but interesting and helpful too. Enjoy!
-First up, Laura and Peter's pretty vintage wedding near Beaminster:
The English Wedding Blog
-Then onto Nikki and Sven's wedding by the sea in Studland:
Lisa Dawn Photography
-And Lizzie and Duncan's wedding by the sea in West Bexington:
-Sarah and Adrian's 'fun and quirky' wedding in Sherborne:
-Naomi and Ally who did it their way (with a Chinese twist) in Symondsbury:
Beauty by Emily Faith
-Kat and Rich's sunshine, socks and spotty shoes English country wedding at Chettle House:
-Becka and Chris's intimate garden wedding with only 9 guests in Morden:
-Mary and Steve's vintage themed wedding in Broadmayne:
Hope you find some useful ideas and inspiration on these blogs.
Finally, some words of advice from one of our brides mentioned above (Adele): "It’s never too early to book the suppliers for your wedding, the sooner you start the process the better to make sure you get the right people on board without compromising, we wouldn’t have changed the people we worked with for the world." And that's what makes weddings so satisfying.
Thanks for reading, liking and retweeting!
