Let us make your dream a reality - Elite Event & Wedding Planning

Elite Event & Wedding Planning was founded by Psychology graduate turned Event & Wedding Planner Allana Paterson in 2012. Our aim at Elite Event Planning is to take your vision and make it happen. Attention to detail is our speciality and an attribute which can set your event apart from anything you have seen before. From private parties such as birthday, engagement, retirement, anniversary, baby shower to a larger scale event such as a wedding. We will take your vision and use our planning expertise to put every last detail into place creating a special memorable event personal to you. Most people have idea’s of how their dream wedding or party will look but lack the time and skills to make it happen. At Elite Event & Wedding Planning we take care of every last detail for you from invites, venue, décor, catering, favors/gifts, entertainment, activities, accommodation & transport, security, site management and anything else required to make your event special… Let us make your dream a reality.

I was first introduced to the world of events when I travelled internationally as a dancer with the Scottish Rockettes Pro-Dance Team performing at various sporting events. From entertaining crowds of 50,000 people at Hampden or Murrayfield Stadium’s, to performing at the MTV awards or a beach soccer tournament in Europe. We were generally hired to add that extra bit of sparkle to an event, this would also include corporate events such as performing at the launch of a new company, airline or sports centre or the annual christmas party. It was here I gained insight into how a large scale event is structured.

I graduated from the University of the West of Scotland in 2010 with a Bachelors (hons) degree in Psychology and went on to develop my own business and ‘Elite Dans-Kool’. After several successful large scale events and performances directed by myself I discovered I had a talent which stemmed further than the ‘family party planner’. It was then I went onto further my studies with the QC International Event & Wedding Planning course and the second strand of my business Elite Event & Wedding Planning was formed.

To Date I have successfully organized many events including:

Baby Shower, Hen Night, Milestone Birthday party, Retirement party, Engagement party, Halloween party, Christmas & New Year Eve party, and several stage performances and sporting events with Elite Dans-Kool.


At Elite Event & Wedding Planning we will not only meticulously plan, but also look after everything on the big day/night including catering, bar staff, floor staff and security staff if required.

We had the best fun ever at Allana’s Halloween party, all the activities and party games were so much fun. The party was so scary with skeletons, slime and eyeballs everywhere, not to mention the cobwebs and scary music. Our favourite part was douking for apples.

Abbie & Danielle (Dans-Kool)

The girls of Elite Dance Crew truly added a touch of sparkle to our event. Thank you to Allana for co-ordinating the dance off and for putting on an amazing show.

Community Learning & Development.

When I said I wanted a day out with the girls, something different for my 25th Birthday Allana took the reigns and arranged Go Ape Outdoor Adventure. Knowing I am a thrill seeking kind of girl Allana make a brilliant choice and I had so much fun. In true outdoor fashion Allana arranged a picnic set with blankets, fruit baskets, sandwiches & much needed energy bars and drinks. Added extras such as applying camouflage makeup and special home made ‘army suits’ before taking part in the adventure really made for a truly memorable birthday, thank you so much.
