This week has been a busy one for me. From a meeting with fellow photographer Haley Ruth I have managed to network with two amazing local suppliers that have been very productive.
I met with Emma from A Bespoke Design because I want some personalised stationery that will fit with my branding and be something that my clients both wedding and portrait will love. Packaging is such an important part of a quality brand, we can all recognise a Tiffany or a Jo Malone and I knew that a specialist in bespoke stationery would be the best fit for me. The stationery that Emma designs and produces is exquisite and I am really excited about the finished product but you’ll have to wait a few week for that.
Whilst chatting with Emma I told her that I wanted to have some branded goodies of the edible variety too and she gave me the details of Lucie at Wonderland Bakery. After a quick back and forth via Twitter Lucie and I arranged to meet next week to talk things through. We also discovered that we live very close to one another, she is in a village about 2 miles from me. Skip to Saturday mornging and whilst laying in bed checking the astonishing outside temperature of -15 I also looked at my twitter feed and saw that Lucie was considering whether or not to venture out herself after joking that the farmer’s market she was due at would be too cold so she might have some cakes going cheap! It is a well known fact that I am a lover of cake so I piped up with a ‘me please’ tweet that resulted in the lovely Lucie bringing me a box of cakes at the end of her day. Yummy cakes delivered to my door = happy me!
We will still be getting together next week to talk about how she can help me on a professional level but her delivery made my weekend of a teenage house party SO much easier to bear, thanks Lucie!
