Wedding Fayres Update

Good morning everyone!

I know I don’t normally do a post just to say this, but I just thought I would let you know that I have just updated the ‘Upcoming Wedding Fayres’ section. The main reason for the post is to let local readers know that there are two upcoming wedding fayres, this month, that I believe are quite exciting for our little area!

First up, this weekend (22nd April) is the Vintage Wedding Fayre that is taking place in Great Ayton at Christ Church been held by Cloud Nine Events.

Then the following weekend (29th April), probably the most exciting of them all, is taking place! Brought about by two very creative and talented women, Stationer, Vicky Trainor and Photographer, Becky Mitchell, The Wedding Institute will be holding their very first wedding fayre at the Village Hall in Saltburn. Through starting The Wedding Institute, Becky and Vicky hope to bring a new twist on wedding fayres, along with a little bit of excitement to the wedding industry in our area, they want you to come and ‘hang out’ and not just ‘visit’. To get a bit more of a feel of what The Wedding Institute is all about head on over to Love My Dress and take a look at the styled shoot they did at Rigwood Manor in Saltburn back in February. Also, if you want to see more about some of the suppliers that will be at the fayre on the 29th April, then head over to Brides Up North who will also be blogging from the day itself.

Please try and get yourself along to one of these wonderful wedding fayres and if you do, enjoy! 🙂

Shock horror! Another post in the space of two days, what’s going on?! 🙂 No need to panic though, it’s just something that I forgot to mention yesterday.

In the past couple of weeks I have managed to get myself a Pinterest account. For those that don’t know what this is, it is basically a site where you can share images and make your own boards to share with people etc (it is my new addiction! and perfect for those who are planning a wedding). At the moment I am currently using it to put together some ideas for one of my friends upcoming weddings and also for some personal bits and pieces.

If you would like me to put some images together for your big day, I would be more than happy to. Just drop me a message with your ideas and click the “follow me on Pinterest” icon to the right hand side of this post.

Does anyone else use Pinterest for storing favourite images and ideas? Are you as addicted to it as I am?!

Just thought I would let you know (for those that still occasionally come on Miss HR) that I have given the Upcoming Wedding Fayres section a bit of an overhaul and it has now been fully updated with wedding fayres right through to October listed!

I have also added a few new suppliers and fellow wedding bloggers to the Link Love section so go have a browse and see if you love their work as much as me.

Hope you are all ok and your first day back at work of the week isn’t going too badly!


P.S. I would like to give some massive love to some of my besties…Sarah who got engaged to her boyf, Gary, whilst on a romantic winter trip to New York! And also, to Leanne and her fiance, Ben, who have brought the gorgeous Piccolo Sophia into our lives! Congratulations 🙂

Taking a Back Seat…

As you may have noticed there hasn’t been much action on Miss HR lately. I am still very much in “love”/obessessed with weddings and I still trawl blogs and websites every single day but I have just decided to take a bit of a break from Miss HR for now. I will hopefully be back up and blogging sooner rather than later and I plan on keeping the Upcoming Wedding Fayres section up-to-date so keep your eyes peeled on that!

Hope everyone is ok and if between now and then you would like me to look into anything for you etc, just let me know and I’d be more than happy to!

Take care xxxxx

P.S. I just want to give some love to two of my girls who have just recently got engaged, Leanne (to Ben) and Karen (to Dav). Let the planning commence!!

Blog Love

All I seem to be doing on my blog of late is apologising for lack of posts and I’m afraid today is going to be no different! I have been back from Turkey for over a week now where I had an amazing time, I would recommend Olu Deniz to anyone it is absolutley gorgeous and would make a stunning wedding location! So as I said I’ve been back for just over a week and like when I went to Benidorm, I’ve just lacked all motivation! So to get me back into the swing of things, I’m going to do what I do best and drool over gorgeous weddings on just as gorgeous wedding blogs! There are quite a few posts for you on this weeks blog love as some where meant for the blog love I was meant to do before I went galavanting off but unforunately, I just didn’t get round to doing it. So here you go, enjoy…..

I know I haven’t been doing my blog justice of late and I’m sorry about this, but I’m afraid things are going to get slightly worse for the next few weeks, as I’m off here on Monday!!

I’m paying Turkey a visit for the first time, Olu Deniz to be exact and I am beyond excited! It’s the first proper holiday me and my boyfriend have had in about 4 years! So I’m afraid I am going to be out of blogging action for a week or so.

Has anyone been to Olu Deniz before? If so, got any recommendations of places to eat, drink, visit etc??

Lyric Love

Well I was hoping to give you a bit more of an informative and creative post today but unfortunately I haven’t been able to squeeze it in! So here’s some lyric love from one of my favourite bands to keep you all entertained and perhaps help you decide on your first dance or processional song!


Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?
Am I still your charm, or am I just bad luck?
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?

I’ll show you mine if you show me yours first
Let’s compare scars, I’ll tell you whose is worse
Let’s unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words

We live on front porches and swing life away,
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
If love is a labor I’ll slave till the end,
I won’t cross these streets until you hold my hand

I’ve been here so long, I think that it’s time to move
The winter’s so cold, summer’s over too soon
Let’s pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow

I’ve got some friends, some that I hardly know
But we’ve had some times, I wouldn’t trade for the world
We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go

We live on front porches and swing life away,
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
If love is a labor I’ll slave till the end,
I won’t cross these streets until you hold my hand….until you hold my hand

I’ll show you mine if you show me yours first
Let’s compare scars, I’ll tell you whose is worse
Let’s unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words

We live on front porches and swing life away,
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
If love is a labor I’ll slave till the end,
I won’t cross these streets until you hold my hand

Swing life away…

Rise Against – Swing Life Away
