This afternoon is a pretty exciting one for all of you TNWC readers who entered our House of Whatnot competition to win a beautiful embroidered wedding map. It was one of the most popular competition’s we’ve run and there were so many lovely entries, which meant Sally from House of Whatnot had a really difficult time choose a winner.
As with most competition’s there has to be just one winner, and I’m delighted to announce that the lucky person who’ll be receiving their very own personalised embroidered wedding map from House of Whatnot is…
Huge congratulations to Nicola! Sally from House of Whatnot really loved all of the map details you are already incorporating into your wedding and felt one of her wedding maps would suit it well. Sally will be in touch with you shortly by email to arrange getting your map made.
There have been some fab competitions on the blog recently (check out this one that you still have until midnight today to enter!) and I’ve got some great ones coming up as well. Today I am delighted to be announcing the lucky winner of the Zara veil from ethical wedding dress company Minna.
We had some lovely entries – it is so nice reading all about your wedding plans and why you’d like to win – but sadly there can only be one winner. That lucky bride-to-be who has won the Zara veil to wear on her wedding day is…

There are some lovely little businesses out there and when an email drops into my inbox from one who creates a product that I utterly love, it’s a pure pleasure to share details (and a competition!) with you all. Today I get to introduce you to Sally who runs House of Whatnot creating these beautiful framed maps with embroidered personalised details.
If, like me, you fall head-over-heels for Sally’s delightful keepsakes, then you might want to enter the competition at the bottom of the blog post – one lucky couple will win a personalised framed map, featuring a special location to you picked out with an embroidered heart and your initials. I am just so envious of whoever wins this!
There really are some wonderful and exciting courses and workshops popping up at the moment, I must book onto a few more as those that I have done I have loved. TNWC business Green & Gorgeous always have a fabulous programme of courses throughout the year, but have just added to new ones especially for those getting married – and I have a special discount on them just for you!
This summer Green & Gorgeous will be running two special courses, one called ‘Grow You Own Wedding Flowers’ and the other ‘Arrange Your Own Wedding Flowers’. Rachel from Green & Gorgeous told me that it will be a great opportunity “to enjoy the unique and deeply satisfying experience of watching your wedding flowers grow from a few seeds to armfuls of fresh, garden grown blooms.”
Having previously attending a Green & Gorgeous flower course I can definitely recommend them – I went with my mum just before my own wedding and we learnt how to arrange with cut flowers. You can read about my experience here and see the beautiful arrangements we created.
Below is a little more detail on each of the courses, which are being run on multiple dates during April 2013, and then the special TNWC discount.

Already this year we have had some great competitions on The Natural Wedding Company, and today’s prize is up there with the most gorgeous.
Finish designed Minna Hepburn has recently launched her 2013 collection of exquisite wedding dresses to her beautiful brand Minna, and to celebrate that launch one lucky TNWC bride will win the Zara veil worth over £100 – read on for full details of how to enter.
The new collection which is called “Love Letter” was inspired by an old petticoat and a love letter found at an antique market, and adds more delicious and affordable wedding dresses in Minna’s ethereal style. All of the dresses are handmade in Minna’s London studio and range from floor sweeping gowns to mid-length dresses from between £360 and £800.
This Sunday 24th February is the White Memoirs Vintage Wedding Fair in Manchester and along with a number of other girls, I am really looking forward to it!

Today is the last day to get your entry in, so don’t delay and go enter!
Amongst the lovely exhibitors who will be attending this weekend, is TNWC recommended supplier Silver Sixpence In Her Shoe. Nicola who runs Silver Sixpence got in touch to tell me about her Bespoke Boutique that she’s running at the White Memoirs Vintage Wedding Fair.
Nicola is offering brides-to-be the opportunity to book a 30 minute appointment with her to discuss what you want in terms of a bespoke bridal accessory – from beautiful headpieces to birdcage veils, dainty garters and pretty sashes. As well as having this one-to-one time with Nicola to discuss your requirements, I’m told there’ll also be some special new bespoke pieces to try on.
