What inspired you to work in the wedding industry?
Hapless romantic! I love love, and love to see folks focusing on and enjoying each other and having stress free weddings.
What is your favorite thing about wedding planning?
Capturing the spontaneity of the moment and Details! Shots from different angles and the fact that the photographer has taken the time to capture all the elements that’s important to you.
Do you travel within the US and/or Internationally?
Internationally. I’m based in London, UK but can travel further afield where required.
Name some of your favorite places you’ve found yourself for work
Been to the Four Seasons Park Lane twice, one for work related workshop and the other for a wedding showcase, something about that venue that oozes elegance, I would love to plan an event there. Assisted at a shoot at Hedsor House, a really idyllic venue set in the heart of the British countryside (but not too far from London). Site visit to Western Hanger Castle and was treated to afternoon tea! The fact that you can hire out a castle for your wedding is still quite a novel idea!
Name some of your favorite vendors you’ve worked with
Beverley Wilson London, The Custom Cake Boutique, Mrs Jones Vintage China hire, Bola Sami Photography, Christiana Andrews Films, The White Card Company, McJonathan London, Amanda Karen Photography, HollaA Events, The Classic Crockery Company, The Little Cake Garden etc.
Do you have any advice for brides on the wedding planning process?
Get some help with your wedding planning and take the stress of yourself; you always think you can do it yourself until it gets to the crunch time. If you can’t afford a full planner, hire an on the day planner / coordinator.
When you’re not working your day (and night!) job, what do you love to do?
I love to read, cook, fellowship or watch inspirational, spiritually uplifting or true life movies.
If you could travel to any destination right now, where would it be?
Gosh…that’s a difficult one to pick…first port of call would be the Bahamas!
What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
I like watching South American soap operas, when I can spare the time! Love their commitment to the traditional values of love and family and secretly wish I knew how to speak Spanish!
