How to decorate your venue for a Christmas wedding?

That’s right I’ve written a wedding article.  Many of you will not know that I have worked in the wedding industry for a very long time.  The positions have all be in Cardiff and the surrounding areas and have included working behind the scenes as a wedding coordinator, as part of the food and beverage team or as operations and executing the wedding day.

The following was written for the November / December issue for Your South Wales Wedding Magazine

Vintage for Victory Festival in Cardiff

With an era-inspired pin curl in my hair, bright red lips and a naval uniform style dress; I headed to Library Gardens in Whitchurch, Cardiff to the Vintage for Victory weekend festival ready for a trip down memory lane.

The throwback event is in its third year and celebrates all that is great from the 40’s to 60’s.  Plus 10% of all ticket sales are donated to Cancer Research Wales – one of the leading cancer charities in the country and who are based at Velindre Hospital behind the gardens.

Bloggers Meet Brands – Marketing, Branding and Content

This event has been such a good find!  I attend business networking events for the day job and at times it can feel like you are playing the long game, however this event ticks all the boxes – meet other bloggers, given the opportunity to interact and share ideas, and be introduced to brands and products in a friendly and supportive environment.  I attended my first event at the beginning of June, just one week after my new blog went live.  You can read all about it here.

Christmas in July at Bierkeller Cardiff

Last week on Thursday 19th July 2018 I attended Christmas in July with some of my work colleagues at the Bierkeller in Cardiff.  I am a massive fan of Christmas and I am ready to celebrate all year round.  However, I do think that decorations should not go up until December – I don’t understand those who put them up in November and take them down in February!
