I thought it would be helpful to share some of that content here for any couples planning their own wedding who perhaps haven't got a stylist/designer to assist them.
Introduction to Wedding Styling
Design, decor, and details are what makes a wedding unique and personal, they should be used as a tool to tell the story of “you” within them. It's not just about picking out pretty details though, to create a truly amazing experience for your guests: delight their senses and evoke emotion with the use of sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. True luxury for me, is focusing on quality and not quantity within those areas.
In your wedding styling, all elements should have a particular style and theme to make a cohesive wedding d...
I know for many it can be confusing - is event production just hiring in a lighting and staging company? Do I need a big agency to plan my celebration or should I choose a more personal planning service with an individual event planner I can build a relationship with?
The truth is that event production is so much more than just choosing suppliers and managing timelines. Together with event design it is the consideration and management of every single detail from start to finish.

I think everyone has been excited for what 2017 will hold - so many romantic engagements and beautiful wedding celebrations to come!
For me, the year started on a wonderful high as I was recognised as "Wedding Expert of the Year" in the prestigious Luxury Travel Guide Wedding & Honeymoon Awards 2017.

I have absolutely loved mentoring and tutoring other creative wedding business owners over the last two years - from bridal designers, bloggers, prop hire companies, photographers and stylists - but there is defintiely something extra special about the aspiring and established wedding planners I have guided and had the pleasure of helping transition their businesses to greater success.
This Summer I worked with the delightful Nancy & Katie - two sisters with very different backgrounds, coming together to create a more stylish offering for couples getting married in Northern England where they are based. I created a bespoke programme for them which not only guided through the logistical challenges that planners face, but also practical know how in getting more of the right clients (including training on SEO and PR), a hands on styling session and total brand review.
As I write this, the girls are working on a new logo and website, and have also inv...
