Im so happy to welcome our newest guest blogger Megan from The Little White Book. For those of you that haven't heard of The Little White Book you are in for a treat!
Here, Megan explains why in her own words!!
about the little white book: There’s so much to organise, and the little white book is designed to make that much easier – incorporating wedding planning as a seamless and simple part of day-to-day life. A compendium of everything you need to plan your wedding, a 12 month count-down diary with checklists at regular intervals, journal prompts, space to record appointments, and most importantly, room for your thoughts to record everything memorable about the process.
why I created little white book: When my now-husband, Blair, asked me to marry him on 15 February 2015, I couldn’t wait to begin planning our wedding. Neither of us have parents, nor married siblings who could help, and I was the first of all my friends to get engaged.
I had to get organised immediately, breaking down the process of wedding planning into small, manageable tasks. I also wanted to record the memories of what is such a special time, but I found that keeping a diary as well as writing in my wedding planner was such a hassle –there should be one place to both make plans and be a keepsake of memories of my engagement.
I searched worldwide (and my Maid of Honour kindly scoured New York) for the perfect wedding planning organiser – to take with me to vendor appointments, dress fittings, and write down everything to remember. We couldn’t find anything so I continued writing in my everyday diary and my wedding planning book, and I started a blog - She Said Yes.
I discovered that my writing was serving many different, but equally important, purposes. The first (and last) thing that a wedding journal does is act as a keepsake of memories. From the day I got engaged up to the big day itself, many things happened that I wanted to remember. Keeping a journal provided a great place for me to track everything that happened, recording memories that otherwise would have got lost in the midst of planning the actual wedding.
I promise it will be an indispensible companion from “Yes” to “I do”
- it is as functional as it is beautiful.

So this week I have decided that my blog post will be a little different......usually its all about weddings but today I wanted to take you behind the scenes on my day of shooting for 1 Tap Receipts.
1 Tap is a relatively new app that is used by sole traders to track their spending throughout the tax year. I stumbled across the app unexpectedly whilst networking on Facebook. What caught my eye is the fact that it said you literally just have to photograph your receipt and the app does the rest...Yeah right! That's what I thought! Until I tried it!
And that my friends was my WOW moment....it does exactly what it professes to do!
And it really is that simple. Not only does it keep a track of your expense but it also extracts the data from the receipt and categorizes it to make things even easier when it comes to filing your tax return!
Now as I said previously...not wedding related at all...but the best bit is, that by making my accounting so easy I now have ore time to do what I love...Wedding Photography!
The 1 Tap team consist of a small group of creative and super talented people who really do have some exciting things in the pipeline ( and from what I've heard the app is just getting better and better )
It was great to meet Matthew Perkins who made sure that the filming was as natural as possible! The day was a great success and I cannot wait to see the promo video which will be ready for release in the next couple of months.
As I know from being in the wedding industry, work of mouth recommendations is really the best form of advertising and I am happy and confident to say this is definitely an app that I would recommend!
Watch this space.....
