Introductions ...

So ... this is it! My first blog.
Stormy Sloane Photography


After A LOT of deliberation (and I mean a lot of deliberation) I have created this blog so I can have more contact with you:  my colleagues, my family and friends and most of all my lovely clients, both old and new. So ... where do I start? Well, I decided to start with an introduction to me. This little attempt has taken me ages but here goes ...

I'm Candice! Creator of Cerendipity ... a little wedding planning business based in the heart of Buckinghamshire ... and mum of three! (Not forgetting wife to a wonderful man!) I love weddings (that one's obvious) but I also love vintage and pretty ... cosy nights in front of a roaring fire and reading ... and I love the smell of freshly mowed lawn.

A freckly, strawberry-blonde and a South African, I moved to the UK 8 years ago when I got married. I have planned many weddings ... and parties ... for family and friends since then but took the leap earlier this year to make a dream come true. I never had a wedding planner ... I was pretty determined that I could and wanted to plan it all myself (boy was I wrong!). It wasn't until I started Cerendipity that I realised how much a wedding planner could have helped me, while still allowing me to have control of the things that were important to me. My only wish is to help every couple I work with to have the wedding of their dreams ... exactly the way they have always dreamed. Join me as I embark on this exciting journey of all things wedding.

I'll be blogging (and you'll be reading) about lovely people I meet such as fabulous photographers or bridal dress designers, or advice and inspiration on wedding planning and lots and lots about things I've come across that I love (all to do with weddings of course!)

Until next time ...
