Event Planner, Wedding Planner
My name is Sarah and I am fairly new to the world of event and wedding planning. I believe that the host(s) of any event should enjoy the event as much, if not more than, their guests do; whether it is a small garden party or the wedding of someone’s dreams. This is where I fit in. I will strive to take away the stresses and strains of planning and executing an event and to work closely with clients to turn their visions into a reality. I won’t make promises that I can’t keep but I will do my very best make sure that the final outcome of your wedding or event exceeds your expectations.
A little bit about me:
After finishing my A levels I decided to travel to New Zealand and train to become a ski instructor. That was supposed to be my year out before going off to university however; I spent the next four years doing back to back seasons between New Zealand and Canada. Within those four years I gained several qualifications in downhill skiing and race coaching. I also became a ski school coordinator and trained other instructors.
I had to stop instructing when I starting having problems with losing my voice, which meant that I could no longer teach. But I do believe that the four years that I travelled taught me more fundamental life skills that I could ever have learnt at university.
I have always had an eye for detail and planned many family parties i.e. birthdays, Christmas’s, New Year’s Eve and dinner parties. It was whilst I was organising my Dad’s 50th (a series of events that took place over the entire month of his birthday) that a friend suggested that I should consider doing this for a living. At first I thought that surely you couldn’t do something that you loved to do so much as a career and then I thought why not...
Froward planning, patience, time management and the ability to think on your feet and provide solutions for problems at a moment’s notice; are only but a few skills that I had to accomplish as a ski instructor and are skills that I can bring to the table as an event and wedding planner.
I provide a full range of services from just a simple consultation to play around with ideas to full planning services for both events and weddings.
Remember: No event is too small
Also I am prepared to travel to gain as much experience as possible.
