Nearly 11 years ago, one of my ex-pupils, and now very dear friend of mine - Jess Nelson... sang for me as I walked down the aisle on my Wedding Day. It was beautiful. A truly unforgettable moment!
Jess (now a fully fledged Mummy) is now working her socks off to build an events company, where dreams ‘really do come true’. Today I had the pleasure of joining her company @onceuponawisheventsuk for their Summer ‘Royal Storybook Adventure’. A few months back Jess asked me if I could write a magical script that would incorporate their much loved Fairytale characters, and immerse the children into an imaginative journey around the beautiful grounds of @salomons_estate .
Of course... I jumped at the opportunity to get creative, and practise what I love so much, and to repay Jess for making my Wedding Day so memorable. It also gave me the prospects to see our @wish.lane Imagination Dice in action... in all their glory!
What can I say... the @onceuponawisheventsuk team were AMAZING! Truly talented! They lifted my words from the paper, and bought them to life in true Fairytale style! A very proud moment!
I also met a wonderful photographer who followed the story around the grounds, running up and down hills and over bridges, capturing the children’s every reaction, their every smile. @waterman_photography - deserves a massive shout out!
It was a truly magical day all round.
It proves that with passion, creativity and a little bit of hard work... anything is possible!
