It appears that it is event season in the world of weddings! We have a jam-packed calendar for the coming month, full of fantastic open days, showcases and special events that will take place around the country (oh, for the time and means to attend them all!). We can’t wait to see the new ideas and styles that will come out of these events, and I love hearing about different ways in which traditional items are given a fresh lease on life. It is Spring of course!
