Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
What about your business are you most proud of?
My business has taken me 4 years to build and alot of hard work, the thing I am most proud of has to be the way it has exceeded all my expectations in regards to growth and bookings.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't be scared to be different, no matter whether it's small or large - Every wedding matters to someone, so every wedding deserves that special touch.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love all the personal touches from memorial ladders and tables right down to the spontaneous dances by the brides and grooms that shock all the guests. But the one that stands out for me has to be timeline photo's - Seeing pictures of customers when they are younger and growing up through the years is pretty special.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Alot of my customers know what they want, but for the ones that don't I tend to arrange a viewing at the venue with them to go through some ideas and go through lists of services I offer. This way they can begin to picture their venue and day as if they were there already. I go away and provide an accurate quote and send to my customers for them to look over. I will always provisionally book dates in my diary for 7 days when quotes are sent. If my customers are happy they pay a 30% deposit with the remainder payable 14 days prior to the event. In between that time I will go back to the venue with them to provide a layout plan so I know on the day where everything is going to be set up.
What is the best themed wedding you have worked at?
Festival Themed has to be the best, but again i love all themes. I love the hard work that goes into it all.
What are the decorative trends with brides currently?
Big things at the moment are definitely the light up letters and the tall elegant floral centrepieces.
Flower Wall backdrops is another trend that's hitting the wedding industry too and these are very large scale and pretty too.
What is your signature finishing touch?
Everything that is done is created solely by me and my team. We won't leave until we are happy with the way the venue looks.
What decoration do you think every wedding needs?
It has to be a backdrop whether it's behind the top table or situated away from the table for guests to have pictures, alot of backdrops are being used as photo booth backdrops now rather than the booths.
