Bringing your vision to life colourfully and accurately, your vision is my vision.

My name is Karen Ferguson and I am a newly qualified, creative Events and Wedding Planner. I believe this makes me a fresh and exciting new option for prospective clients.

I am very much a people person and will enjoy working very closely with my clients to produce the results that they desire. I personally am a flexible, organised, enthusiastic, creative individual and keen to offer my skills and services to clients in need of any kind of event planning.

Having completed and achieved 8 Highers including A's in both English and Latin and B's in History, French and Philosophy, I went on to The University of Strathclyde, Glasgow where I am currently studying a Business degree and hoping to move on to an Honours degree in both Marketing and Management. I also studied French for 7 years, two of which were at University so I am well acquainted with the language.

During this time I was also studying at QC School of Event and Wedding Planning. I was extremely excited at joining the School because planning events is something that I have always wanted to do.I love the thought of starting with nothing but a vision and bringing it to life the way my clients have requested, it is a very satisfying feeling!

At the moment I have experience in planning close family events for example for my recent birthday party I hosted a Disney themed party where everyone dressed up as a Disney character and brought their own Disney DVD. Disney princesses covered the walls, there was a Finding Nemo pinata not to mention an array of banners and Disney themed tableware. My guests said it felt like they had walked into Disneyland, exactly what I wanted to achieve!

I have plenty of experience working with the public thanks to my job in the Home Department of a well known High Street store. I have great knowledge and find it easy to keep track of all of the stock in my department. I have the ability of allowing customers to put their trust in me and this is illustrated when I successfully sell a whole range of furniture to them in an Interest Free Credit Agreement. I am very good with figures and am able to work well with the Bank to ensure the customer has the best chance of being allowed credit.

Having worked in a Solicitors Office for two years, I have gained priceless experience with working closely with professional Solicitors and Secretaries. I feel that this experience will serve me well when working with people across different hierarchies in perhaps corporate companies or even simply different personalities within a family. I am constantly in contact with Courts, other Solicitors offices and Clients to name a few and believe that this will be reflected in my ability to work with different businesses in the events industry such as caterers, entertainments,photographers etc.

Services

I intend to cater for any event requested by my clients. From Weddings, Anniversaries, Bridal Showers to Baby Showers, Baby’s First Birthday to Sweet 16’s, 18’s, 21st etc not forgetting Corporate Events and Wakes. Other events include Halloween Parties, Christmas Parties and Reunions. There is simply no event I am unable to plan! Your vision is my vision.

I can offer many packages to clients depending on their budgets. I plan from ‘Blue Collar’ communities to Middle Class families right up to High Profile Events. My mission is to accommodate everyone with consistent professionalism and accuracy. Not only this, but I believe I can bring any vision to life, there is no event too big or too small, where there is a will there is a way!

My approach to gaining an understanding of my clients' needs is spending a lot of time with them at our initial consultation asking many probing questions. This is their event after all, my aim is to make it picture perfect!

As I treat each client as an exclusive individual, it is best they contact me direct to discuss prices as these can differ depending on a number of factors such as type of event, number of people etc.

Let me, Karen Ferguson bring your vision to life today!
