I’m back from a wee break in the Pennines

High Force Waterfall by Penrith ‚  I'm perched on a rock at the foot of High Force Waterfall ‚  Acorn Bank National Trust Property by Penrith

A trio of shots taken from our wee break in the Pennines over the weekend, before the snow fell again. ‚   We had booked our seventh attempt to fly off in a hot air balloon and although a flight launched the day before, our flight got cancelled again as a result of high winds.

Never-the-less we enjoyed a lovely break amongst the rolling hills in the Spring. ‚   We stayed at a Shire hotel by Penrith, just off the M6 and A66. ‚   We ‚  visited the High Force waterfall, which was spectacular after the couple of days of heavy rain last week, plus we ‚  popped into ‚  a beautiful herb garden and watermill at a National Trust property called Acorn Bank.

Ayrshire Wedding Planner perfects Fife Wedding

The Ballroom Dressed for Louisa & Patrick's Wedding Reception

For almost two years I have been helping my clients Louisa and Patrick to create their dream wedding in Balbirnie House Hotel, by their Fife home in Glenrothes. ‚   ‚   This last weekend was their Wedding Day and I’m pleased to announce that it went perfectly as expected.

Louisa wrote to me just last night to say “It was the most wonderful day of our lives, we loved every moment of it. ‚   Everything was perfect and we couldn’t have done it without you. ‚   You have been a godsend and I was so relaxed yesterday because I knew you had everything in control.”

Here’s a photograph of me with the Bride Louisa, and also of the Ballroom in the Balbirnie House Hotel that was dressed to match the mood they required; classic, traditional and ‚  relaxed, in their selected colours of gold, black and white, with white roses and lillies. ‚   We used Finishing Touches by Adele for the beautiful chair covers and sashes.

Happy Mother’s Day from Sarah’s Creative Occasions

With my mum on Mother's Day in Dumfries

To all those who mother children of their own, adopted or fostered children, family and cherished pets, Happy Mother’s Day!

I’m just back from a lovely weekend in Dumfries with my family, to celebrate both my 35th Birthday but also Mothering Sunday. ‚   Here’s a picture of me with my mum.

And Spring is definitely here, with the sun shining, ‚  deer leaping in ‚  the fields, lambs suckling from their mothers and snowdrops with crocus adorning gardens.

Sarah Finalises Management of Ayrshire Corporate Event

Design for the Ayrshire Corporate Event

I’ve been busy in the last couple of weeks finalising the details of a Corporate Event for NATS, ‚  a large Ayrshire business which is celebrating a significant achievement on Saturday 20th March 2010.

Not only does this involve organising the celebration ‚  at the ‚  Ayr Racecourse for 450+ guests, but it’s simultaneous with a celebration at the Southampton Football Club (FC) ‚  in Hampshire, ‚  joined ‚  by video link.

It was key for me to find local suppliers in Ayrshire that would work with the contacts on the south coast to pull together ‚  the ‚  overall design. ‚   I’ve managed to organise the majority of ‚  this event ‚  remotely in Ayrshire, but I ‚  have taken one ‚  trip down to Southampton to see the layout of the football club and to meet ‚  my contacts face-to-face.

Photos will follow as I near completion, it’s very exciting!
