LITTLE MISS FICKLE AM I…

Looking for an app/software where you can save all your wedding notes, ideas, your appointments and photos too, then carry on reading…

A while ago I wrote about what a great piece of software Evernote was…and it still is…but I’ve/you’ve got to pay to get more space now. I don’t like that, I want something for free like it was in the beginning. It’s like shifting the goalposts when they do stuff like that. So…I decided to try and hunt for something else. I tried a few, they were ok but sluggish, I like to wait for a nano-second for things to load haha.

Anyways, fast-forward to Google Keep…it is mega magnificent with cherries and cream on top. If you’re looking for an app/software for keeping notes, “voice” notes (whilst you’re on the move) which record you and also show you as text (make sure you speak clear, haha, and that’s alls I’m going to say. But jesting apart, it really is a neat bit of kit and works on so many platforms and you can share your ideas too. You can also prioritise and get reminders…they have kept it simple which is important and it runs at the speed of light.

I needed to get all my hard-copy material on-line yesterday and it is perfect for what I want…Google…you rock…and then some!!!!

If You’re ‘Appy And You Know It…

Tis well known in my photography circles that I adore techno things, be it some new software, a free programme, a new app or a free app. Well i’ve been researching all this morning for a free app for planning your wedding. I have looked at a lot and downloaded the ones I ‘thought’ would be uber cool and time saving…hhmmm…some were, shall we say, not very good. Some crashed!! Some had adds on them and a few looked a tad suspect, haha…say no more. Just as I was losing the will to live and was thinking about changing the content of my new blog  I came across a little gem. Not only was it a gem, it was a Lancashire gem too. Not only did the app work perfectly but it was crystal clear on what to do and how to do it. Could it get any better…well yes it could and did. They had a little video tutorial to show you what to do, just in case. Could it get any more better (is that the Queens English lol)…oh yes…they also have a super web page and blog.

If you’re planning your nuptials, you need to check the app, the video and their website out…if you know what’s good for you.

From Wood With Love…

A couple of months ago I wrote a blog about coat hangers (yes, you read that right and yes I need to get out more). The blog was about choosing the right coat hanger for your wedding gown. Well fast forward a few months and one very creative Bride-To-Be who read my blog, decided to go ahead and make her own, not just for herself, but for her bridesmaids too. She kindly sent me some photos so I could share them with you all, which was jolly decent of her. Ruth, you’re a star…thank you very kindly. I hope this inspires you all to get your creative heads on. Enjoy Ruth’s photos and for the mo…peace out, Nancy x

On The Buses…

Are you up to the stage where you are planning your transport for your wedding or have you just cut to the chase and already done it. If you haven’t, here’s a little tip for you. There are many wedding transport arrangements that you can google, but an absolutely awesome one is hiring a bus. I especially like the older type buses, they really have a lot of character. Besides being a super transport option for you or your guests, they can also double up as a very quirky place to take some of your wedding photographs if the weather turns rainy on your big day. This is maybe worth a thought for all you budding brides and grooms.

I’ve just come across a lovely little site that does the above (I have no affiliation with this site, I google just like you guys, the photo is mine from another company)…it seems like a cool site and it’s in Lancashire which is always a good thing. Hope this little snippet helps…peace out for the mo, Nancy x

I Get By with a Little Help From My Evernote

Don’t you just love long titles…

 

Evernote

I’ve been using Evernote for a couple of years now and it’s only in the last year I’ve become to find out how crucial it is to use it as a planner for my photography, but I think more so for the wedding couple. You can take snapshots of things on the web, share them, edit them, you can store, email from, keep track of, take clippings from blogs…just so many connotations.

There is a free version which in itself is very good, but the Plus and Premium accounts are very reasonably priced. I used my Evernote in conjunction with a bride a while ago and we could both send each other notes, ideas…novels haha…timeline scenarios, but we both could edit at our respective ends.

It works on Mac and Windows and is well worth a look if you like a bit of order in your life…but don’t just take my word for it, check out the this wedding couples write-up and a different point of view from a photographer.
