About Me

Born the 24th Janury 1988 and christened Joanne Emma Smith, I was born and raised in Lancashire.  I eventually ventured out of Lancashire to Merseyside to attend University in 2006.  After graduating with 2:1 BA (Hons) in Law & Business I moved back home to Lancashire and have since worked as a Food & Beverage Manager at a prestigious venue in the Ribble Valley and more recently, as the Deputy Manager of a Restaurant.  These roles formed my enthusiasm for organising weddings and events, which led to the Simply Bows & Chair Covers franchise opportunity.

Simply Bows and Chair Covers

Working in weddings and events meant I saw the awful state of linen that was supplied to hotels.  Linen was ripped and stained, organza sashes didn't match and chair covers were never washed.  Just by chance I came accross the Simply Bows and Chair Covers franchise advert and knew straight away that this was what the industry was a missing.  I knew from the offset that Lancashire needed Simply Bows and Chair Cover!  And of course, I eventually got to use my business degree!

Since a very young age I had always wanted to be a writer (I once wrote a 20 page story when I was 7) and blogging is a brilliant way to express my opinions and thoughts on the industry.  Being a Lancashire lass I am keen to do this county justice and promote what wonderful venues, suppliers and real life brides we have! And blogging is the perfect way to do this. 

On Lancashire Bride you can watch out for real Lancashire weddings, featured Lancashire suppliers and venues, showcases of my work as Simply Bows and Chair Covers and general ramblings on!
I hope you all enjoy the blog and your comments are always welcome!

Love Lancashire Bride x
