Qualifications include
• ICS Wedding Planner

I grew up in a small town and went to live and work in hotels across the country gaining many skills from admin and reception to bar and waitressing, working very closely with the wedding and events teams in the hotels I gained a passion for wanting to be involved with the wedding and events which gave me the drive to qualify in these sectors. So as that one day I would have my own business inspired by dreams of movies of wedding planners I was dying to find out what really goes on in their lives. After completing my first qualification on wedding planning i loved it so much I wanted to complete another one including corporate events and extra wedding experience.
