Ok, here I am at almost 39 weeks pregnant and feeling like a beached whale (yep, I am now fully one of those people who talks in weeks rather than months about their pregnancy) this picture by Darina Stoda Photography was taken a couple of weeks back now. I’m also one of those people who vowed never to put their baby belly on the internet (!) and will definitely not be filling my IG feed with baby spam….Hmmm. These pesky preggo hormones are really something, I just feel so darn proud of housing and growing a mini human and sometimes you guys may hear about it.

I’m filled with anticipation, anxiety and of course a tonne of excitement for baby B’s arrival but I also know that becoming a mum will take me away from Little Lending for a while.

I adore what I do and have loved building up my little company for the last 3 and a half years, but I need to be realistic too, my life is about to change massively. I’ve always been super active on social media and I really hope to keep posting all the inspo I find but the likeliness is that there are going to be a few gaps while we adjust. Your emails and enquiries may take a bit longer to get back to you on too, but if you’re already pencilled in the diary for styling or hire, please be assured you’ll be Little Lender this summer, or next. If you’re getting in touch for the first time we’re almost fully booked through from May-September now for 2017, but have good availability for this Autumn/Winter and we’re taking 2018 bookings too.

It will be the biggest juggling act of my life, but I will find a way to make it happen and still give all my couples the best service I can this coming season.

So this is just a little post to say, thank you so much for your patience and support. I’ll continue to do my best for you guys while enjoying this little life that’s currently kicking me in the ribs!

I have scheduled some content for the blog and our Facebook page though so be sure to check it out to keep those W-day ideas flowing.

See you on the flip side,

A SUFFOLK BARN STYLED ECLECTIC WEDDING

The Summer season is beginning to now ease off for us so it’s time to start sharing a bit more of the ‘incredible Summer of 2016’ (this is what it shall now be known as! Starting with this totally epic day captured by Mr Phill photography, who I think I have a slightly obsessive photography crush on…

This wedding was all about the details, when the Laura the bride got in touch for me to help style the barn with her I was so excited. A totally new venue for me and after a 2 hour venue walk round meeting we had some big plans and ideas. Laura was a true DIY bride and nothing was too big a project, from the dozens of little origami birds behind the cake to the hand painted terracotta pots on the tables and of course that hand written paper table plan…I arrived on the day and was already in awe!

Please enjoy these images of a wedding that I adored being a part of, I have such great memories of the set up day spent with Laura and Tim’s family and friends. I dabbled at floristry with market and garden grown flowers and had a ball setting up props; from the lit up hanging ladder for the sweets, the macrame backdrop behind the band, the boho corner…it was all just so me. I may not say it enough when I’m inundated with hire to wash and pack and an overflowing inbox, but I love what I do.
