You dream it, we create it

My name is Jo Thomas and I provide event and wedding planning services. My approach to design is open, I am able to cater to all requirements from very traditional to modern with a touch of sparkle, whatever the event and theme I work with the client on every aspect of the planning and I invite my client to be involved in the detail as much as possible.

My background is very much a catering background, I trained in hotel management and I also trained as a chef so I am very much in touch with the food fashions at present aswell as function management. I have also gained alot of experience dealing with corporate events and due to my experience within the catering industry I am aware of venue and function rates and I am able to negotiate competitive rates. I am also aware of what is required for corporate events and how to event manage those to the client's satisfaction.
