For many years Marry Me In Tuscany has been my baby, I have nurtured it and let it grow into a well respected business which has allowed me over the years to meet and work with some amazing people from all over the world, some of whom have remained fast friends and for that I shall be eternally grateful.
I really did enjoy my time in Tuscany, considering I set out to stay for a couple of years I did well creating a business from an idea and living and working in the some of most beautiful breath taking places on the planet for the last 12 years.
But now it’s time for me to move on to a new chapter in my life, new projects and a brand new country to play in. Lots of wonderful things have happened to me in the past two years, I re-connected with my first true love and high school sweetheart Roger and although we had been separated for 30 years a chance email and months of chatting and texting led to a cute meet in Rome “the Eternal city of love” where love was definitely in the air and we both knew that we never wanted to let the other one go again.
And so, last year I moved to Canada and the wedding planner finally got to plan her own wedding! 😉
We were married in March this year and I can truly say I have never been happier. I now know how all my brides have felt as they say “I do” to the one they want to spend the rest of their life with. I’m sure some of you would like to see the evidence, so here are a few photos from our big day from our fab photographer, Jayme Morrison and if you’d like to see more, they can be found on her blog 😉
