Flourish & Prosper Inspirational Learning & Development for the wedding industry

Earlier this year Jessie from Jessie Thomson Weddings & Events and I met up for coffee and cake for a conversation that meant just a few month’s later we’d be launching Flourish & Prosper, a brand new and totally unique resource for the wedding industry!  If you’re a regular reader or follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ll have seen the tweets and updates but may still be wondering what it’s all about.  Well, today I’m spilling the beans and sharing the pics from our very pretty launch shoot with Ashlee from Taylor Barnes Photography and a tonne of pretty, pink and glittery props!

Jessie and I both wanted to learn, grow and develop our own businesses but couldn’t find anywhere we could go to meet like-minded wedding pro’s and be inspired by the very best.  We wanted to be part of a supportive community, to learn from each other, to inspire and collaborate. We wanted to help each other not only reach our business goals but exceed them, whilst improving the wedding industry.  We wanted a place which would support the industry as a whole – from start-ups to established and successful businesses – no ego’s, no stars, just friendly, helpful and approachable.  We agreed there was nothing like this in the industry, and that it was time for there to be.  After months of hard work behind the scenes, we finally launched Flourish & Prosper in March to an incredible response!

“A unique resource for wedding industry professionals, F&P is about learning, growing, sharing and collaborating with the very best so we can all, well, Flourish & Prosper!”

Our first event F&P: The Wedding Academy takes place on 1st November at Icetank, London with a fantastic line up of speakers, that is still growing! Covering everything from blogging & social media with the one and only Kat from Rock n Roll Bride,  SEO and branding with Swash & Fold (the man behind Love My Dress’s recent re-launch), creating a product with Maids to Measure, and accounting advice from Ward Williams Creative they’ll be sharing their knowledge & experience and inspiring our attendees to take their business to the next level!  The Wedding Academy will be followed in March 2015 by F&P: The Wedding Retreat, three days of relaxation and inspiration with some of the very best in the whole wedding world (eeek, can’t wait to share more on this one!).  And in May 2015 we’ll be hosting our first F&P: The Styling Workshop where Jessie and I will be sharing our best tips and tricks for creating beautiful images for your portfolio as part of a styled shoot, mini shoot or product styling session with a team of pro’s who really know what they’re talking about when it comes to great images!

Louise

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
