We are quite aware that everything has been rather quiet on the ADA front over the past year. Our little ADA family has grown, as has our work outside of our ADA endeavours. Since 2012, when we first started with nothing more than a hope and a dream, thanks to all of our wonderful vendors and event guests we have grown well beyond what we ever anticipated. Covering 3 regions across Queensland, with thousands of followers on multiple social media platforms, we really do have to pinch ourselves to ensure that all of this has been real and not some wild crazy dream.
The time has come for us, Carrie and Emily, to move on from ADA. As much as we have loved every moment, both of us have a number of other commitments that are calling and in order for the ADA brand to continue to grow and progress we felt it was time for us to move on, and to hand over ADA to new, fresh and excited owners. However, we didn’t want to just hand it over to any old buyer – we wanted to ensure that whoever took over from us understood who we are at ADA, what we stand for, and would do our brand justice in the future. We crossed every finger, and wished on every star, and the universe delivered.
We have found the perfect duo to take the reigns in “The Two Jo’s”. That’s right, Jo and Jo – both named Jo, both incredibly warm and kind, both from the UK, and both more than qualified in both the wedding and events industries. Most importantly, we could instantly see that they are equal parts down-to-earth, and in love with ADA.
We have every confidence that Jo and Jo will take good care of ADA and all of you, our lovely Darlings. We also trust that all of you will show them the same kindness that you have done for us. Of course we will miss all of the pretty things associated with this industry, but more than that we will miss the amazing, passionate people we’ve had the pleasure of working and creating with. So thank you, truly THANK YOU to everyone who has come into our lives during the crazy journey that A Darling Affair has been. And thank you to Jo and Jo for taking on ADA – we can’t wait to see how it continues to grow and thrive with you!
So long for now, perhaps you’ll see us around (Queensland is a small world after all!).
