Since starting in the events industry in 2003 I have worked with a number of different clients in various contexts having experience as an organiser, consultant, guest and host
I am truly passionate about making events stress free, perfectly executed and enjoyable for all parties involved.
Where it began...
Confession time... ever since I saw J Lo in The Wedding Planner, running around clad with radio mic and falling in love with the groom, I knew that was the job for me (minus the falling in love with the groom part, obvs!!) But it wasn’t until it came to planning my own wedding that I really took that dream seriously.
Those three things are very important to me (which yes, can drive my husband mad). So when it came to my wedding I didn’t want a wedding planner. I knew that all the logistics and setting up on the morning couldn’t involve me and if I was about to relinquish control of all my hard work, it had to be to someone good! Cue OQ…
In 2016 I founded Occasion Queens (OQ) and since then I have gone on to help over 40 couples bring their wedding dreams to life.
I am passionate about making the experience special for everyone involved, right from the very first conversation. On the day I’ll make sure everything looks just so and is perfectly executed. I want everyone to make memories in all the right ways.
For the couple, I know it is all about the perfect day.
For the venue it's about pulling it altogether seamlessly to make sure their day is a special one.
On a personal note, see Instagram stories for my regular cooking failures (I am a connoisseur of burning sweet potato fries and burgers especially). I adore seeing my friends for brunch, lunch, dinner, drinks (happy with all three in the same day) and love nothing more than just a night in with my husband on the sofa bickering between action or rom com films and settling for a police/prison/A&E reality programme instead (I have seen them all!)
