What about your business are you most proud of?
A young couple with just 10 guests at Christmas amongst the fairy lights and log fires, a castle in the woods and a stunning princess dress: the ultimate in true romance.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Champagne chosen by the couple for their day but with their details on the label to keep for a big anniversary.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Vintage will never go out of fashion, but true vintage instead on flowery china. Mix battered old oak trunks with sumptuous soft cashmere throws inside and pure white bone china on distressed trestle tables and gorgeous ghost chairs you have a wedding that will definitely last the test of time.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Always ask for professional help, whether you are having a full planning service, or someone setting up on the day use the services available so you can focus on the fun and excitement in the knowledge that you are in experienced hands.
What is the best themed wedding you have worked at?
I like to get to know the couple, their personalities and their hopes and then designing the wedding on that information. From personalised Stag & Hen celebrations through to colour schemes and decoration reflective of the couple.
What are the decorative trends with brides currently?
Lights, big lights, little dainty lights, giant letter lights; whatever suits your design, but light it up!
What is your signature finishing touch?
It's less about the theme and more about personality, I loved the rowing theme from a summer wedding wedding, the groom was a professional rower and we had his own colours made up in bow ties for all the gentlemen attending, the bride had a bouquet that tied in beautifully and the reception was on the most stunning yacht. It was so much fun to work with such an exciting couple.
What decoration do you think every wedding needs?
My ever-growing collection of simply stunning vintage props - just too pretty!
