Wedding Bible Planner Debuts!
Last June I attended engage!, the wedding industry’s best luxury wedding business summit. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint! It was such a great experience that I went again in December and have plans to attend my third this June. The summit is three days full of inspiration, insights, ideas and innovation. But one of the greatest takeaways outside of those 4 I’s is the people you meet and the connections you make. It’s an opportunity to be in a room with people you might not normally cross paths with because of geographic distances. Case in point is the subject of this very post. At my first engage!, I had the great fortune of meeting Sarah Haywood, Britain’s most sought-after wedding planner. We sat next to each other during an afternoon of presentations and began chatting during the breaks. Those conversations continued (via Skype!) after the conference ended and developed into one of my favorite collaborations to date. Just weeks after connecting, Sarah hired me to redesign her top-selling wedding planning book and planner. I was over the moon! In addition to being a master at her craft, Sarah is such a delight to work with. The redesign of the Planner was the first order of business and we worked for several months selecting new images, developing a fresh color palette and overhauling the entire aesthetic. I am particularly fond of the silver foil printed calligraphy headings by Paul Antonio. Gorg! Today, on the most fitting of days (it’s Valentine’s Day folks!), the newly redesigned Wedding Bible Planner debuts! To quote Amazon,
