When I was a child, I remember how a week seemed like a month and a month might as well have been a year, and come December, summer holidays stretched before me like a never-ending oasis. Now, time seems to flash past like scenery glimpsed from a speeding train. Recently, I lost an entire Wednesday. I have no idea where it went.
It’s been over a year since I announced the coming of my new website and now, it’s finally arrived. Why does it seem like no time at all? Much has happened… hundreds of events and weddings, meetings with clients and thousands of emails, the illness and death of someone very dear to me, a child finishing school and another, university, and all the minutia of life that leaves us with precious little time to just, well, be.
But nothing great is ever achieved without great effort and I am reminded of H.W. Longfellow’s words, ’The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.”
And so it was through many hours of toil that this goal has been reached. None of which could have been possible without the fabulous Williamson sisters; one a bride and one a designer and two of the most creative and kind women I know. Thank you, Melody, for trusting me and allowing me to have so much fun styling your wedding and thank you, Carla, for toiling upwards in the Seattle night, while we on this side of the planet, slept.
That's Melody above (the bride) and the very talented Carla, (website designer and marketing guru extraordinaire) crouching down on her right.
Your work and creative juju has achieved great changes:
We’ve changed our name so that there will be no more confusion between us and well, frankly, less authentic suppliers – so when you see ‘Two Little Rows’ you’ll know you have the original and absolute best Stradbroke Island wedding planner, stylist and florist… 14 years on and we still love just being us, only us and no one else.
We’ve changed our website to make it easier (and prettier) for you to see who we are, what we do and who loves us. Huraah!
And while a big piece of our hearts will always be Stradbroke Island, we’ve widened our reach so that everyone can share the love that all our experience, creativity and just plain, fanatical obsession with exceptional service and beautiful weddings and events has to offer… First Stradbroke Island and now, the world!
Whether you have known us as ‘Stradbroke Weddings’, or have found us as ‘Two Little Rows’, all that matters is that you’ve found us, and we’re so happy to meet you!
