I've had my own company now for 15 years, and in an ever changing industry, I'm very proud of its longevity.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Be realistic with your budget!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I begin with a consultation, either by 'phone or face to face. The consultation is designed to gather as much information as possible about the wedding and the clients, and whether we're suited to working together. The planning process can be a long one, so it's vital that you feel I'm the right person for you. It's my job to understand your vision, have your best interests at heart to create the wedding you want.
How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?
For me, having a great team of wedding suppliers is key to ensuring a stress free wedding. Planning of course is paramount, ensuring that every eventuality is thought out and planned for. My timelines/running orders have been described as "War & Peace" because they're so long! Communication is everything!
What do you love most about your job?
Hire professionals and get recommendations! Suppliers/vendors that have longevity and have a proven track record of producing great work is priceless. Good suppliers should be able to offer you details of past clients that you can approach to ask for a testimonial.
What is your favourite moment at a wedding?
I love to see the bride's shoes! Shoe moment!
