Weddings are unique, beautiful, emotional and often the biggest day of someone’s life, and I am honoured to be able to create them with the help of my team. We have the opportunity to work with couples from all over the world and really getting to know them is an incredible experience and something I have an immense passion for.
After 11 years of planning destination weddings, I have learnt it all comes down to two things, connection and personality. You must have a connection with the couple to really get to know them and create a wedding which is all of them, it also makes for a fun planning process! Then, taking into account the personality of the venue, of course, the couple and a little of what makes Matthew Oliver Weddings special, bring it all together to create something stunning, which has never been seen before.
I’m very fortunate with the success of Matthew Oliver and also in life, Bertie has not only been my best friend, but has also been very supportive in the direction of the business, where we can bounce ideas off each other from two different perspectives, which is invaluable!
Animals are a super passion of mine, and I’m a huge advocate for them. Every year we send 1% of what we earn to an animal charity, so thank you so much for allowing us to be able to do that, and supporting this beautiful world we live in.
What I love most (other than our couples, weddings, Rupert and of course Bertie!) is going on a long run after work, down the canal path in Bradford-on-Avon with Rupert, listening to my female rap and 80’s music – trying my best to sing/rap! (and failing…)
I like to say the last few years have really shaped me into who I am, and that is because I’ve been able to work with incredible people and see amazing places. I’ve learnt so much about who I am, but I’m constantly learning from each of my couples, industry friends, and also learning from the cultures/traditions we’ve experienced along the way. All this mixed with travelling has created me, and I love who I am!
