Shindigs & Wedding Bells...
fun, friendly and inspired planning for all your event, party and wedding needs

Shindigs & Wedding Bells.

Imagine you are about to plan a magnificent party, a memorable event or a fantastic wedding. You’ve got the ideas about what you want but have no idea where to begin with making your dreams a reality. Or perhaps you just need help finding that one person that will design and make the cake or the table decorations or locating the band your friend will love. That’s where we can help you.

At Shindigs and Wedding Bells, we love to plan a fun occasion that will be remembered by everyone for years to come. Our professional yet personal bespoke packages are created specifically for you and can range from simply finding that perfect venue for your event or wedding and leaving you to do the rest to a full event or wedding service, sorting all the details, big or small, from start to finish.

“Times are hard” you say? At Shindigs and Wedding Bells, we pride ourselves on being economic with your budget. Using our services will save you time and money overall and will allow you to concentrate on looking forward to having a fabulous time and not worrying about the details. That is our job.

So if you’re about to get planning and want to chat through your plans, meet us for a coffee and we’ll get the ball rolling.

People who know me would describe me as “the one who is always organising”. Whether it’s an event for my birthday or a friend or family occasion I will always be the one sorting out where to have it, how to have it and how to invite people!

Although I enjoy organising events for my own friends and family, I have also arranged events for others. In the past I have successfully planned and executed many events including surprise birthday parties; Bon Voyage parties; large scale summer BBQ’s; at home make up parties, shows and a wedding! Currently I am in the process of organising another surprise party with an excellent theme (Only Fools & Horses!) and a vintage wedding based in Nailsworth, Gloucester.

I have always loved being creative and being a qualified teacher gives me plenty of opportunities to bring out my creative side. However, planning events, organising meetings and designing wedding features and décor is my passion and being qualified by QC Career School as an International Event and Wedding Planning Professional allows me to enjoy my job every day, something that everyone would want.
