Combining unique events with great service for any budget.

I am a qualified and dedicated event and wedding planner and I make sure that every event is unique but is also tailored to suit the needs of every customer. Nothing is too much hassle.

Working with many different suppliers, I am able to create events for every type of budget, whether it be a grand corporate awards evening or a small family birthday gathering.

Having left college, I went onto university where I studied Hospitality Management with a side course in Event Management. This was one of the most enjoyable parts of my course and I soon realised that this was what I really wanted to do with my life.

My general background was firstly within hotels where I would witness the planning, set up and running of many extravagant events. Then I moved into office administration where I would organise many company events such as exhibitions and the office Christmas Party and Summer Awards Gala where I would organise everything from the venue to the menu to the DJ and tableplan's.

All this really gave me a feel for the events business and I realised that I could take this even further and start organising weddings as well.

I decided to take my passion for event planning out of the office and start organising small parties for family and friends. Then through some successful word-of-mouth advertising, I started to help plan events for other people. Then, before I knew it, I was running my own business and creating events for many kinds of people with many different ideas and budgets.

Services

Service with a smile is a key feature within my business and I always ensure that you, the client, are listened to and all your ideas and thoughts are taken into consideration. This is your event of course!

From the initial consultation to the actual event, I am there every step of the way and will answer any questions you may have and will endeavour to meet all your requirements and create an event/wedding that you will remember for a lifetime.

At the consultation period, we will meet at a place that is convenient and comfortable for you. This can be within my office, within your home or we could meet somewhere neutral for a coffee and a slice of cake...or two!

I will then take your ideas and create a mock-up of what I think we could do with your event/wedding to make it as perfect as I possibly can for you. As there may be some aspects of the event that you will want to spend more money on than others, I will supply you with all the names of possible suppliers that I think would be suitable for your event and give you all prices to let you choose which you would like to go with.

Through out the entire process, I will ensure that I have weekly phone calls or face-to-face meetings with you to ensure you that everything is running smoothly and to keep you updated on progress.

On the day of your event/wedding, I believe that it is essential to ensure that I am there till the very end, therefore, I will attend your event and make sure that everything is running smoothly so that you can simply...enjoy!
