Today I welcome you to a brand new start for me in the form of the MrsPandP Wedding Blog, and a positive step to taking my Business to the next level.
Now most of you know I am no shrinking violet, but neither am I overly confident either.
I often find myself having a crisis of confidence, not for the reason that I feel I can’t do something, but for the fact that its is sometimes hard to make others understand what I want to do, or the direction I want to go.
Well today, I stand strong !
I know the direction I want to go, I know what I want to do, but the steps that need to be taken to get to the point I wish to be at, arechallenging and fraught with stumbling blocks.
This new Wedding Blog marks a new dawn in the world of Mrs P and P and my Business.
With this new Wedding Blog I want to share each step I take in building up Plans and Presents and also want to share creative Wedding and Party ideas, some beautiful Real Weddings to inspire your own Big Days, and to introduce you to interesting new suppliers and Venues that might be just what you are looking for.
I am PASSIONATE about the Scottish /U.K Wedding and Events Industry, and my place in is to be the best support I can, to be a guide and to educate !
The last two and a half years, whilst being difficult have also been some of the happiest of my life.
I feel that at times I have made a really difference and have touched peoples lives, and opportunities that
have come my way have been more than I could ever have imagined.
Its been said that Confidence comes from knowing what you sell is what people want.
Well, I am sure in my mind that my ethos to be an affordable reassurance is something that is valued, and the service I provide of the highest standard.
I have found also that I have found my greatest strengths in challenge, and I thrive on the difficult situation and doing my damnedest to turn it around.
This grit and determination spurs me on in my mission to be a force in the Scottish Wedding Industry,
At risk of sounding bitter [but today I am feeling a little bit brave] being in the North can feel like a huge disadvantage
to a Wedding Industry that is firmly based in the South.
It is shared belief of suppliers that, out in the big wide wedding world, anything north of the border is considered a little twee, that we’re not as creative or innovative, however, this is far from the truth.
At the risk of sounding a little Brave-heart like but hey, I am Scottish, I will shout, and I will shout about the value of
each and every Wedding Supplier up here that does their very best every day to ensure clients Events are amazing.
Those that know me , know that I have the gift of the Gab and am not backwards about coming forwards so it will be a case of Watch Out World because this lady just took a big step forward.
I may not be an innovator, I might be seen as not very interesting but I work very hard and I am a tryer.
Its felt that you have to have that significant Niche to make yourself special.
However I want to be seen as someone that is open to all.
I don’t want to tag myself with one specific genre of Wedding and Event, as I believe each event is individualistic and my job is to work with people to get what they want, so I see putting myself into one particular Sector is cutting myself off.
That may be seen as silly, that I don’t have a “Thing” but I see myself as someone for Everyone.
Some people may not like that but that’s just me.
I have also been reminded that for every profitable
successful Business, you need to take a step back, pause for breathe and re-evealuate to move forward.
I think I have achieved this with the publication of this new Wedding Blog and I really hope that you like it !
I would like to say a huge thank you to Yvonne Cassells of Angelfins who has played a major technical part in helping me bring you this new Blog. I would also like to say thank you to Mark Timm [Photographer] for providing me with the images for my sparkly new header which has been lovingly created by the fabulous Ces Loftus.
It has also said that when someone says you can’t, you will find a way to prove that you can, and thats a
philosophy that I abide by.
I am fired up to go out and to just dive headlong after my dreams, I have confidence that even though things take time, I will achieve everything that I wish for.
So today I wear a smile and say Hello to renewed verve, and a New confidence to go far!
So thank you with all my heart for supporting me, and I hope I can count on that continued support.
