A Touch Of Sophistication
Hi, welcome to the official website for A Touch Of Sophistication. My aim of this website is to not only exhibit my services available to clients but also my skills, personality and dedication towards the wedding industry.
I am the owner of A Touch Of Sophistication - wedding planning and prop hire based in Skelton high street, Cleveland. As a bride-to-be planning my own wedding, I found my enthusiasm for the wedding industry overwhelming and from here launched my new business - wedding prop hire. Since the success of the prop hire, I've felt the desirable need to exercise my organisation and social skills to expand my business into the wedding planning field.
As owner of A Touch Of Sophistication, I will strive to provide a quality, detailed and exclusive service personal to my client whom I will work closely with along the way to ensure their special day is the best of their life!
As one of 4 daughters from a working class family, I have always been brought up as a grounded young lady with the belief that happiness comes first
From successfully gaining 12 GCSE's from secondary school, I went on to study and complete four A-level courses at sixth-form college. From a young age, I had always been undecided on my career path and so after successfully gaining my A-level qualifications I entered the world of employment. This included jobs in administration, childcare and shop management and yet I still didn't feel I was fulfilling my somewhat unknown dream.
At the age of 19 I had met my husband-to-be and by the age of 23 we were engaged to be married. Our wedding plans were suddenly halted when I fell pregnant with a beautiful baby boy (now 2 years old) and as a busy new Mum my time and energy was taken by my new addition.
As our time and routine started to return to normal, we took the plunge and booked our big day! It provided me with the perfect opportunity to exercise all of my past skills I had demonstrated in my previous employments. But this was totally different. This was excitement, enjoyment and fulfilment! Within a matter of months, I had my own wedding planned, arranged and booked. I was lucky enough to be given the chance to plan two of my close friends unique and different weddings and from here I knew that this was my destined career path.
A Touch Of Sophistication was born. The opportunity for a local showroom appeared and I grabbed it with both hands. Based in the same building as a florist and photographer specialising in the wedding industry - my knowledge, contacts and business quickly grew and the bond I had developed with my fellow colleagues helped my prop hire business become a huge success. From the start of my new venture, my goal was to provide a high quality wedding planning service to brides and grooms needing the advice and support for their ultimate day!
My highly anticipated wedding planning services cover all aspects depending on your needs. Whether it be wedding day co-ordination, supplier and venue recommendations or the full plan from start to finish, I will aim to meet your individual needs with a quality and professional personal wedding planning service.
The determination of the planning schedule will depend entirely on which services are required. However, all of my services include a close one-to-one relationship with clients, engaging in a number of meetings and communication to ensure that your ideal day is reflected in the end result.
Rather than only provide set packages, I prefer to supply my client with a fully detailed planning schedule which is tailored to their needs and requirements. As a result, my clients receive the exact service that they require at a price to suit their budget and they simply only pay for their preferred stipulation.
To add that special touch to your day, I also provide a wedding prop hire service. Props range from beautiful post boxes to stunning giant LOVE lights. Each and every prop is unique and all themes and budgets are covered.
