The Sunday R&R 154

Hello and welcome to Sunday!  This week has been all about changes and challenges, as I entered a new adventure and launched the Destination Wedding Academy.

Six months ago I sat down with the Universe to work out and ask for exactly what it was that I wanted to achieve and how I could be of service to others.  The first step was assembling a team that shared my passion for French weddings and providing the best service possible.  This was achieved with the addition of new team member Bex, who is busy working behind the scenes and supporting our key activities during our transition.  I thank the Universe for bringing such a dedicated, professional and lovely person to our team.

I won’t lie, it has been a very challenging and an exhausting time recently, with vast amounts of learning.  But when you listen to the Universe and follow what you desire, the Universe provides the resources that you need.

If you are a wedding professional then today is the last chance to sign up for my FREE Webinar where I am sharing my best marketing secrets for destination wedding professionals.  Click to find out more and sign up!

So whilst I am in the office today, polishing off the last few things ready for tomorrows Webinar, I’ll leave you to relax and dream on this beautiful Sunday, oh and also catch up on everything in the Sunday R&R.
