Hello, how are you finding September so far? If you’re anything like me you’ll be trying to get to grips with the idea it’s here already!
September always feels to me like the perfect time for new beginnings. As we drive back from summer adventures and rediscover our proper shoes, there’s a sense of renewed energy that January can never quite muster. It’s time to get down to business; start the real work of getting organised, taking old projects by the scruff of the neck and breathing life into new ones.
What better time then to launch a new venture.
I’m really excited to share with you the brand-new Fine Art Wedding Boutique. Officially launching tomorrow, the online boutique promises modern artisans for the fine art bride.
A curated marketplace for fine art wedding vendors based in the UK, the Fine Art Wedding Boutique is a new and exciting platform showcasing the very best highly skilled luxury wedding suppliers creating and designing beautiful pieces for the discerning bride and groom.
Founder, Kate Cullen, explains what sets the boutique apart:
"CARE more than others think wise, RISK more than others think safe. DREAM more than others think practical. EXPECT more than others think possible. - Claude Bissell"
This quote resonates with me and has been the driving force behind creating the boutique. I've been asked what makes the boutique different from just another wedding site or directory or online shop. It's been a hard one to answer because there were so many reasons I started this venture.
Because I passionately believe in the incredible skills UK suppliers have to offer, because I thought there should be a better, easier way for brides to connect with true artisans. Because I like to work with people that truly, deeply care about the work they do and their clients.
Because I love our industry and want to make it better. Because I want to create, not just physically beautiful things, but community and understanding so that brides and grooms can find in us a place they trust, a treasure trove of beautiful things and a truly different way of planning their wedding - with people that CARE, take RISKS to obtain perfection for their clients, DREAM of those little details that count and EXPECT more of themselves than any client will.
As Kate says, the boutique is an absolute treasure trove, and one that I feel very honoured to be included in. I’d love to hear what gems you find in there.
