So, the last few weeks have been so busy, I barely feel like I've had time to catch my breath but today, a cancelled school summer picnic and a day of rain and very unseasonal weather has given me a little bit of unexpected time and it feels like such a treat so I think it's time for another of my little updates.
The first bit of big news (that I can share at this stage anyway!) is that later this month I'm going to be launched a new venture. After lots of requests from brides and private clients, I'm going to be styling and designing weddings and events. I am so terrifically excited about this I can't explain! It's always been my favourite part of working on weddings - taking ideas and bringing them to life and then that totally magical moment when the bride sees everything set up absolutely takes my breath away. Someone asked me last night why I do what I do and my answer is simply that I love making people happy. So if you want something fabulous and totally 'you' for your wedding, do let me know because I would love to help.
The new website for this is coming soon and I'm going to integrate the blog into it. I still can't believe how many of you read my ramblings and posts every day and it's great so thank you. The website will also be full of lots of amazing images from a big shoot I did last week. The ever gorgeous Claire from Brown Box Photography was behind the lens and we had the run of a great barn. I had planned lots of different looks - literary, vintage travel, herb garden, gyspy, pretty pink and tea & cricket - and had sourced or made and designed everything. The shoot was fab, the shots are amazing and I can't wait for you to see them all. All those ideas in my head translated perfectly and I'm thrilled with the results. Big love to Claire (and to Julie Tooby for her assistance too because she was just great). I even got to put on a wedding dress for some of the shots but luckily for you all, I've kept my face hidden!

There are so many more photos to share but I'm going to wait until the new website is up and running and of course, I'll announce all the details here and on Twitter first so if you're not following me, now's the time! - you can find me as @tamrynkirby
More news - I'm working with frankly one of the most amazing venues in Berkshire at the moment to put together what will be a wonderful wedding event in October. Again, more news here & on Twitter as soon as it's ready to launch and there's lots of exciting surprises coming then. Honestly, it's going to be fabulous and I get all smiley and excited just thinking about it!
There's so much more to tell you but I'm worried I could end up writing a novel of a blog post so I'll keep it short for now but thank you to everyone for support & help recently. I've also met some really lovely 'new' people in the last month or so (you know who you are!) and thank you all for being another part of the answer to the 'why do you do what you do' question - because as much as I love making people happy, there are lots of people that make me happy too and right now, because of you all, clients & industry friends, I'm just about as happy as can be.
