Letter from the Editor

Managing Editor

Romance is in the air at Local Women this month as we turn our attention to weddings.

We have been checking out all the amazing venues, dress shops, beauticians, hairdressers, florists and jewellers who will make your day special and unique.

We are so lucky that there is such a wealth of local talent very close to home, with industry experts ready to help you prepare for the biggest day of your life.

And of course we love printing your pictures because there’s nothing like a real life wedding to give you some great inspiration.

We love seeing the little touches you have chosen for your special day – and of course we love seeing the dresses. Don’t forget Local Women prints all weddings completely free of charge.

So after your big day, send us in your pictures and let us share them with our readers.

And while we are on the topic of weddings, this month we meet Belfast dancing diva Natasha Clarke. Natasha is the youngest member of the Clarke School of Dance in Donegall Street where many people have learned to trip the light fantastic over the years.

She tells us that she is kept busy not only teaching young people her skills but teaching grooms-to-be how to hip hop dance for their wedding days. Apparently

it’s a hot favourite with Belfast grooms who want to show off their fancy footwork!

I hope you enjoy this month’s magazine – we have some great stories featuring some amazing local women, as well as a great mix of fashion and beauty.

Until next month,
