Host: Magda Mahdy – The Weave
Documentary & Creative wedding photographer living in a small coastal town called Leigh-on-sea in Essex, UK. Some fun and colourful facts about me: I’m a notorious travel freak; I’m a cat-obsessed coffee drinker – yes I am! For whatever reason I have a thing for all things pineapples. There is always a reason to laugh out loud, to have a party and to celebrate. Let’s create the business and the life of our dreams! Let’s do it together!
