Your wedding, your way

My company, EC Wedding Design will help plan your wedding your day, and make sure it is the greatest day in your life. I pay particular attention to the detail because I believe the success of your wedding is down to the detail. Of course, it goes without saying that we’ll organise all the big things perfectly - in a timely and efficient manner. But it’s the small things that make the difference between an ‘okay’ wedding and a wonderful one – and we know ‘okay’ isn’t good enough for you and it’s certainly not good enough for us.

Here is my background: I graduated from Laine Theatre Arts, and began my professional career in musical theatre. Stints in pantomime and summer season were closely followed by numerous tours and musicals in London’s West End.

Theatre credits include: Serena and Miss Bell in fame, Cambridge theatre, London. Brenda Lee and the young Patsy Cline, in Patsy Cline - a musical Tribute, both on national tour and in the West End. An extended stay in the German capital, Berlin, I played Gloria in Return to the Forbidden Planet.

I have literally performed all over the world and not just in the theatre. I spent time at sea as a production vocalist for Celebrity Cruises. I am also a versatile cabaret performer having supported a whole host of showbiz stars. I can be heard on several cast albums and I have worked extensively as a session singer. Whilst working in the theatre I formed my band, One Foot in the groove I have been working in the wedding industry for the last 10 years as a supplier of live music. I have performed at hundreds of weddings and so I know the industry well, so I decided to take this one step further and train to be a wedding planner.I have managed to combine all of this with a very successful career as a radio and television presenter.
