New to this blogging malarky...

I can't think for one minute that anyone will be interested in what I have to say on a subject I know very little about, but what the hell, I'll give it a go....

I am passionate about the North East.  I moved to the region in September 2001 with full intentions to leave after the end of a year long course at Newcastle University, but here I am, nine years later still in Newcastle, and getting married to Northumberland's finest, Compo, in June 2011. 

So why am I blogging about weddings?  Surely there can't be any more to say than has already been said, mostly by people far more eloquent and informed than I? Can there? Well, having pretty much organised my wedding except a few minor details, I am doing this because on my quest for suppliers of varying descriptions, I have struggled to find any kind of one stop shop for all things weddings in the North East, and sometimes struggled to find suppliers full stop.  I thought it might be nice to start collating information to help other future North East brides along the way. 

I don't claim to know anything about wedding planning other than what I've done for my own (though I am very VERY organised and pretty good at planning), and I don't claim to pass comment on the reliability of suppliers or the quality of their services, merely I will try and collate information so that people can do their own research and make decisions from there.  There are some great wedding blogs out there already (Love My Dress, Rock n Roll Bride to name just a couple) and I'm certainly not trying to compete, merely that I wanted something that was for us girls in the North East, for people looking for local suppliers.

I'm a pretty boring and conventional girl, but I do love anything slightly quirky and a bit different to the norm.  My wedding is at a lovely country house in Northumberland, we are having a sit-down meal and doubtless Uncle Jack will be dancing like, well, Uncle Jack, to Uptown Girl or Walk Like An Egyptian after too many Wylam Gold Tankards (fab local ale - I will blog about this in the future), but I also intend to inject elements of my own personality to the big day and hope to find suppliers in the region who offer something ever so slightly different.  If there is anyone out there actually reading this please feel free to make suggestions....
