Pearl Pictures at the Modern Bride Show

And in a shoe! The Modern Bride Show took place on the weekend of the 5th, 6th and 7th November. The reason it has taken until today to write my blog is because I am still recovering from it!

Leading up to the show took many hours of planning, coordinating, image selection and printing. It all came together wonderfully and I am so pleased with how the show went. We talked to many wonderful brides-to-be and made lots of new friends with other suppliers in the wedding industry.

Nothing went wrong, apart from having a minor heart attack when I was told, on the set up morning, that the sofa was still in Macclesfield, in the North of England!! Prop house Granger Hertzog were fabulous at taking control of the situation and getting it to me by the afternoon.

I would like to thank Rebel Rebel for their amazing flower arrangements. They followed my brief brilliantly and came up with extremely creative designs. I've never seen a flower arrangement in a handbag, have you? Thank you to Pippa Jameson for her brilliant interior design ideas and to my friend Rich Ryan for his invaluable support on the set up day - I couldn't have hung those pictures with out him!

Many thanks also go to Melissa for assisting me for the 3 days, Glyphics for the signage, Max Wade for the framing, BHS for the loan of the chandelier and Ikea for the loan of the tables. But biggest thank you of all goes to my Dad for ferrying me there and back everyday, driving the van, putting up with my 'occasional' stress-head, and for being my own personal chef and making sure I ate well all weekend. I was very impressed, he actually managed to cook more than just eggs!
