The Week That WordPress Went Mad!

By Claire

A short weekly round up this week, because I’m dashing around trying to pick up some pieces that WordPress dropped. Don’t ask!

The life of a wedding blogger is never simple, but it’s always a challenge and I do love the geeky stuff… I’ve learnt so much from my wedding blog! (turns out, there’s plenty more to learn) Anyways, here’s a weekly round up of my best bits, and everyone else’s too!

On English Wedding last week: highlights

The story of a beautiful wedding by one of my fabulous blog sponsors

My absolute highlight had to be Adela – a stunning, elfin beauty of a bride. Adela and Toby’s wedding shot by English Wedding sponsor Martin Beddall is such a beautiful thing. Love love love it!

It was finally time to talk about advertising in UK wedding magazines. I was nice. This was a two-parter:
