Hello, welcome and hello again!
I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and are enjoying this wee random bit between the big event and New Year?
Today The Promise turns five – I can’t quite believe it, I have been hanging around here for five whole years! On Saturday 28th December 2013 I hit publish on my first ever blog post, Style Saturday. The site looked nothing like this and I didn’t even tell anyone about it for three months. I’m glad I found the courage to speak up and would like to take this perfect opportunity to say a huge thank you for all those supporters who have been here from the beginning and still come back now, I’m really touched and grateful.
By way of a thank you to the beautiful brides who currently follow The Promise here, on our Instagram and Facebook accounts this evening at 8pm we’ll be launching a giveaway in association with Sinead Smith, Maid By Sinead Bridal Makeup. Make sure you hop over and enter, all details will be on each post.
Now, today I’m being brave, I’m going with my inner courage and I’m launching the latest string to my bow – Emma Smith Wedding Consultant. Yikes, I’m excited and nervous in equal measure but it’s something I’ve been thinking about for a long time now.
Back in the days when I worked for a bridal magazine my favourite parts of the job were planning the content, working out a plan to create that content and plan the cover and bridal photoshoots. I am the ultimate planner and love nothing more than a project to manage. Add in my clear love of weddings, my 13 years (wow, that makes me feel old!) experience of the NI wedding scene and suppliers and I have a great package to help couples who need a little help, who don’t have the time or are seriously scared of the whole dam thing!!

I’m SO excited for 2019 – I declared to my bestie a few weeks ago that ‘it will be my year!’ and I really believe it will be. Once again, thanks for hanging out here & here’s to the New Year, have a good one and see you soon, Emma xx
