A belated blog update!

Well, it has been a very busy few weeks since my last update

Highlights being as follows;

The Savvy Wedding Show captured brilliantly  BoMoJo which you can see by clicking here

I am so grateful to be able to work with so many great suppliers who put on a magnificent show for me & all the Savvy brides & grooms to be

Another highlight has been visiting Priory Hall in Hadleigh for a pre wedding meeting with a bride to be, her mum and the venue owner Cyndy.

The grounds & the venue are stunning & it is all set to be a fantastic day

If you aren’t yet decided on your Suffolk wedding venue take a look at their website here

As well as the show & my meetings I have also been busy putting more plans together for more events including the Plan & Pamper evenings which are proving very popular

The products available from Tropic are perfect for any bride to be & wan your special day than treating yourself to a pamper?

Just take a look at the before & after pictures of the gorgeous Venise Haynes who modelled at The Savvy Wedding Show using Tropic skin care & make up and follow the https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fsavvyweddingplanner%2Fposts%2F1006708166042920&width=500“>link to see all the companies involved.

Savvy Wedding ShowVenise Before & After




Plan & Pamper






Spreading the Savvy Love!!

This afternoon has been very productive, it is amazing how much more you can get done without a 2 year old to look after!

I really hope my tagging is going to work on Facebook as there is a whole lot to do

My town tour has taken in to lots of lovely & varied places including

The Brewshed, Beautiful Designs, Posh coffee & cakes, the Museum Street Café, Arlingtons (where I had a lovely cup of tea & very exciting chat about wedding plans!) After the recharge of batteries in Arlingtons it was onto Bowmans, Degeros & the Sanctuary to top up the flyers for The Savvy Wedding show & familiarise myself with the layout.  Next stop Willis then onto Gymophobics which I’d never been in before but will be going again! It is a lovely place with a warm welcome & I can see why it is so popular.  Then back to a much more familiar place, my old workplace AXA where I had a lovely chat with the receptionists & got a few more people hooked on Tropic.

After all that hard work it was time for a wind down and a lovely lambic cherry beer in the Arcade Tavern with hubby before picking up our boy from nursery

A lot of plans made today & I look forward to putting them into action very soon

I will keep you updated!

A busy day & time for blogging!

Well, its been a little while since my last update due to a variety of reasons but I won’t bore you with those.  Instead I will try not to bore you with a review of my day which has been very productive (and a snippet from the last few weeks)


Premiere of With Love From Suffolk a fantastic collaboration & my first time on a red carpet with paparazzi!!

Take a look at some of the pics & a trailer from the film at http://www.withlovefromsuffolk.co.uk

If you are in Suffolk keep an eye out at your local cinema to see when it is showing.  It really is worth a watch

I am really enjoying treating myself every night to my Tropic skincare products & have been treating others to A Walk On The Beach (a gorgeous foot spa treatment with Bora Bora sands just one of the many fabulous ingredients)

This is on special offer in the lead up to Valentines Day, just £22 instead of £26 and you can buy if here http://www.tropciskincare.co.uk/shop/katherinecresswell

Aside from this I am looking forward to working with many more local businesses & charities this year and will be seeing a lot of them at The Savvy Wedding Show on 31st March

This is all set to be a top night, all the details can be found on the Facebook event page


Back to today where it really felt that spring had sprung

I managed to cut my little boys hair which is always a challenge and long overdue!

This afternoon whilst he was at nursery (and the first time I hadn’t planned anything to keep my mind of it) I started my spring cleaning…windows cleaned, hovering in all the nooks & crannies done, bathrooms cleaned, washing done & out to dry.  I then headed out to tidy the garden & plant some pretty things!  Then back in to polish my boots, get tea ready & get out in time to pick up my boy from nursery.

I have just sat down and can feel the aches already!  Time for more Tropic pampering to soothe these aches & give my skin a spring clean too.

Having a night away tomorrow night so I know the house will be clean for an extra 24 hours & I won’t be doing my usual last minute dash to clean everything before we set off on our adventure.

Happy spring time everyone & stay Savvy! XxWith Love From SuffolkHappy Feet















What a week!

Despite a germ filled house, horrible traffic jams & tax return to do, this week has been a real highlight!

It is not often I enjoy being housebound but I have got so much done (mostly in my pyjamas whilst my 2 year old plays with his lego or watches CBeebies!)

I have had a great response from my savvy suppliers for the next show I am hosting in March and was excited to pick up the flyers on Wednesday which will be appearing in & around Ipswich very soon.

There may well be some guest bloggers appearing here soon too.

As well as the Savvy show I have also been making plans for another photo shoot & making plans to work with different venues over the coming months.

Whilst all this has been simmering I have also been finalising arrangements for my Savvy Soiree to celebrate with & thank the people who have helped me get where I am today.

I have even managed to balance my books so am all set for the fun of completing my tax return next week!!

Here’s hoping next week will be as fulfilling and successful as this one…I have just treated myself to a pamper session on Thursday so looking forward to that already…hard work deserves a reward right!!









Monday musings

Happy Monday everyone.  I hope you are all keeping well & warm.

Another week has flown by & lots of plans have been put in place.

Some didn’t quite work out but I always believe things are meant to be & there are plenty of other plans on the horizon that could be even bigger & better!

Unfortunately a photo-shoot planned for Sunday was postponed but I am looking forward to getting a few more people involved & working on some more ideas for the rearranged shoot, it might be a bit warmer by then too!!

There have been lots of enquiries coming in for my wedding planning services as well as for Bambino.  It looks like it is going to be another busy year for us.

In the meantime plans for The Savvy Wedding Show are coming together nicely.

I am really looking forward to hosting in the St Nicholas Centre which is right in the centre of Ipswich & a beautiful venue.

If any brides or grooms to be are looking for someone else to take the stress away from planning your perfect day get in touch to see what I can do for you.

There are lots of great suppliers from Suffolk & Essex who will also be on hand to help

6 days into 2016 & so much already achieved!

I am really excited about the year ahead after lots of very productive meetings & phone conferences this year with potential suppliers as well as lots of lovely brides & grooms.

It is great to get caught up in the post Christmas wedding fever with lots of excited brides & grooms to be looking for help with their big day.

Both Bambino & I look to be very busy this coming year.

Tomorrow I will be visiting the venue which will host my next wedding show & am very excited about the possibilites & how it will look on the night with LOVE Letters, uplighting, beautiful flowers.  It will also sound amazing with the Suffolk Soul Singers performing on the night.

Full details will be released soon

Happy planning everyone and if you do need any help get in touch to see what I can do for you
