Elena Garnham. International Wedding and Event Planning Professional.

After two years of studying, shadowing Event and Wedding Planners, and building up strong relations with vendors, I am now a fully qualified Wedding & Event Planner and eligible for:

•The Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC)
•The International Special Events Society (ISES)
•The UK Alliance of Wedding Planners (UKAWP

Early in 2011 I was lucky enough to shadow a Wedding Planner. Here I utilised my skills, and showed great passion and imagination from the outset. I assisted with the planning from day one. The wedding took an average of nine months to plan. I learnt how to deal with challenging suppliers, used vendors that I had already built a relationship with during my coursework, and dedicated my time to the Bride and Groom, ensuring their expectations were met. Lana Pender was the Wedding Planner and suggested that as I was working so well, I should solely plan the Bride's Hen Party and Wedding Shower. I did this and was pleasantly surprised with how well I had done. Attention to detail is VERY important, and I consider myself a perfectionist! My imagination and creativity paid off.

The wedding itself was beautiful and everyone gave positive feedback.

Below is a letter from Lana Pender, the Wedding Planner I shadowed in 2011:
'During your time working alongside myself with the "Pullar" Wedding, you showed great dedication and passion. You built a tight relationship with the Bride and Groom and worked alongside both of them to ensure all parties felt involved. Your attention to detail in very good. There were something that I hadn't thought about so early on, and you surprised me with your imagination and flair. I wish you all the best and know the Wedding & Event Planning is YOUR calling. To all potential employers, I would tell them the following...
"Her imagination, flair, and genuine passion for the Event Industry puts her in front of any other student I have come across. With a truly professional, unique, and creative approach to Wedding and Event Planning, Elena believes no matter how extravagant or intimate an Event be, you are guaranteed an impeccable performance. She only recommends the highest of services, listens to your every need, and offers you a totally stress free environment to ensure that you have the best on your special day." Thank you for your help Elena.'


At 25, I am a qualified Wedding & Event Planning Professional. I am now ready to dedicate all my time to a company who I will not only work alongside, but grow and utilise my skills to making a fantastic business grow further.

I have always been the 'Planner' amongst family and friends. I have organised Birthday and Anniversary parties, corporate events (my former employer always asked me to arrange the Christmas party), and family holidays. I am relied upon to make the event happen. Forever exceeding expectations, any event to me is personal, a chance to express my potential and explore the dozens of creative ideas I have.

I have a natural talent in this industry. It is my greatest passion. I have everything a potential employer would look for in a Planner, what sets me above competition however, is my imagination and natural flair, and upmost dedication.

In achieving this experience, I now want to be professionally recognised and work within a Company I can grow with.

A great people person, full of warmth and enthusiasm. She made me feel at ease and stress free with my Fathers Retirement party. Infact, I actually enjoyed planning with her!
