Introducing ‘The Lovettes’ – Our 2015/16 Community of Blogging Brides (Part 2)

Lovettes 20151

Good afternoon my lovelies! I’m hoping that by now, you will have had an opportunity to read this feature of yesterday, through which introduced you to one half of our brand new team of Lovettes, our brilliant new community of blogging brides.

In yesterday’s feature, I talked about how we’re really mixed things up this time – taking a more flexible and creative approach to managing our Lovettes project. It means that instead of taking on 3 or 4 blogging brides for the next 12-18 months, we taking on 21!  That’s 21 fabulous wedding planning adventures, covering nuptials taking place as soon as June this year and as late as September next year.

Our entire team of Lovettes are pictured below with their beloved  🙂 Yesterday, I introduced you ten of these ladies, and this afternoon, I’d like to introduce you to the final eleven.  There is so much I want to say about each and every newly appointed Lovette, but I feel it’s fairer for the ladies to introduce themselves through their own blog posts, so for the purposes of this, and yesterday’s posts, I’m going to keep introductions basic and brief, starting with….


Kate Kellaway Moore, age 26
Wedding Date: 2nd June 2016
Location: Tuscany
Photographer: not yet booked
Brief Detail: ‘Tieing the knot in the rolling hills of Tuscany.  All we really want is a day where we get to say our vows to each other, in one of our favourite places in the world, with our favourite people in the world. And if we get to have more than that, then we’d happily top it all off with a big Italian picnic, many glasses of prosecco and a party under the stars. My four-year old niece Erin has called it ‘Auntie Kate and Tim’s pizza wedding’, which we think sums it up precisely!’
