The Hostess With The Mostess Turns 40

This weekend Rebellious Bride had the honour of providing “special entertainment” for Finland’s top wedding planner Anu Beadle‘s 40th birthday party in Tampere. The evening was a joint celebration with Anu’s husband, Paul Beadle, who turned 50 earlier this year.

Anu truly is the hostess with the mostess.  Up until a month ago the award-winning entrepreneur still wasn’t sure whether to organise a birthday party for herself at all, but then she decided to go for it as stylishly AND as relaxed as she possibly could – not the easiest of combinations, I’d say! But: Anu is a professional and organising fabulous parties is her forte.

With little time to pick a venue – and everything else that goes with a party – she went for Kristilla Manor, a beautifully decorated period house close to her childhood home. And what a perfect choice it was… Being the glamorous wedding planner and owner of Lily Dream Wedding that she is, there was no detail out of place, no grumpiness in sight. How the hell does she manage to make it look so incredibly easy? IDK!
