The phone calls and texts started coming in this morning – friends and family were starting to receive their Country Living magazine and we had been spotted! Our post has just arrived and there is our wedding, in print, those gorgeous photos, some full sized (eek!) in a real issue of Country Living.
I still can’t quite believe it and yet I have a copy in my hands. If you are a subscriber to the magazine you’ll be arriving it any time now, if not it’s on sale around the 10th/11th June if you fancy a read.
The thing about blogs is you can share all kinds of news in real time, whenever you life. This news, however, has been under wraps for the past 9 months, and Mr Rigg and I haven’t been able to share it with anyone until today. One month from today, our wedding is going to be featured in the July 2012 issue of Country Living magazine!
I’m not even sure where to begin in telling you how excited I am about the whole thing – where do I begin?! I have been an avid Country Living reader since we bought our own house and I always enjoy the beautiful ideas and inspiration that they share, as well as the pieces on small rural businesses. To think that our wedding will now be part of that tradition is so amazing!
I love seasonal, British flowers. I want to take my love for seasonal, British grown flowers and share it with you all. This week sees the launch of a fabulous new wedding magazine called Unique Bride Magazine (if you haven’t already seen me shouting about it on Facebook and Twitter). I was lucky enough to be invited to write an article for the launch issue and my copy arrived in today’s post.
I chose for my article to reflect my love of seasonal, British grown wedding flowers and to showcase to brides-to-be the beautiful options that are out there if you look just a little further afield. Rather than rambling on about why I love seasonal, British flowers I’ll let you read my article and be inspired (Issue 1 of Unique Bride Magazine goes on sale in WHSmith from tomorrow 26th April) by some of what the seasons have to offer.
I am so excited to share with you that I’m in a real life magazine. Never did I imagine 7 years ago when I started dreaming up what became The Natural Wedding Company that I would be featured in a glossy magazine.
You can find me in the September issue of Simply Beautiful Magazine sharing details about our wedding stationery and a step-by-step guide with never-seen-before photos of how to make my ‘save the date’ cards. I created this especially for the magazine so very excited to share it.
There’s also some of my top tips for having a greener wedding and saving money while you’re at it – so if you’re interested in having a read, get down to your local WHSmith and get a copy. Would love to know what you think if you’ve had a read.
