Alan Titchmarsh Show, Divorce Parties and Love Match Weekends
Today was a very exciting one for Genevieve Zawada of Love Match Weekends, who I recommended to the producer’s of the Alan Titchmarsh Show as a good person to talk about Divorce Parties – as she has organised one in the past.
Genevieve’s Love Match Weekends are also rather like a party – for those looking to bridge the gap between divorce and finding love again – and she is one of our experts on the Alternative Divorce Directory.
Genevieve remained amazingly calm and professional despite her enormous excitement, and I kept her company during the wait between rehearsals and the recording of the show, and I got a good seat in the audience to take some snaps to record the occasion.
The day before I was due to be on the show myself – along with another of our Alternative Divorce Guide experts – but it all got changed at the last minute (those of you used to the media world will know that feeling of “AHHH – make up your minds!” all too well) – but having even just one of our gang on national TV is not to be sniffed at so thank you very much The Alan Titchmarsh Show!
What was interesting was that Alan Titchmarsh deviated from the questions in the rehearsal and asked about how many people divorce acrimoniously so making a divorce party – where both partners could be invited to the same party – rather unlikely. I wished I could have leaped upon the stage in my role as the Alternative Divorce Guide and told him all about mediation and collaborative law and life coaching as ways to diffuse the anguish of divorce – but I did that back in 2009 when I was on the Show myself just before the Starting Over Show (1st UK divorce fair) was launched. So I glued myself to my seat and managed not to interrupt the filming.
Genevieve pushed home the positive aspects of a divorce party where the divorcee is starting over from a difficult time, celebrating the support of family and friends, and looking forwards to the future. She also was able to mention her Love Match Weekends which provide an excellent environment for people to prepare themselves for dating without any pressure or stress. Life coaches and stylists are on hand, and the weekends are lively and fun and a great way to build confidence and to spend time with other single people.
Well done Genevieve! Let’s hope we see more of you on our screens over the months to come.
