Good morning all! Today’s post is dedicated to wedding professionals, new and established. The wedding industry is one that requires a lot of hard work and dedication from us, as expectations are very high. If you are anything like me, it isn’t always easy to stay motivated, and at times we focus so much on our own clients that we don’t dedicate enough time to our own professional development and growth. This is where Flourish & Prosper comes in!
Flourish & Prosper was founded in 2014 by two leading experts in the wedding industry – top UK stylist and editor of b.loved blog Louise Beukes, and luxury wedding planner and designer Jessie Thomson. Together they set out to encourage and inspire anyone starting out or already established within the world of weddings – connecting like-minded businesses and professionals in a creative and beautiful environment.
