Last week I was back in one of my favourite places, Dubai. For this visit I’d been invited, as a speaker, to the Planners Xtraordinaire Show. This new show is a closed door congress, bringing together the leading luxury wedding and event planners from across the globe. The show was a chance to spend some time with colleagues from all over the world, in this wonderful eclectic industry, and also share some of my knowledge of managing high-profile events.
Heading into the Autumn is always a busy time of year for industry shows and events. This weekend sees Brides The Show take place at the Business Design Centre in Islington, where our good friend Amie Bone is going to be showcasing some spectacular florals. Sadly I can’t make it as I’m heading to Dubai for the Planner’s Xtraordinaire show but I’m looking forward to seeing what breathtaking designs are on show.
It’s been an incredibly busy summer, but what a fantastic few months we've had. Back in July we had the pleasure of helping to plan a Summer Soiree for Amie Bone Flowers at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower in Knightsbridge.
The highly anticipated wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews is now just a couple of days away. The high profile couple have chosen to hold their reception at Pippa's parents' mansion in Bucklebury, Berkshire, following a ceremony at St Mark’s Church close by in Englefield.
If you're planning an event, it's always a good idea to hire in a professional event planner, London. They have the experience and also the contacts to make sure your event runs smoothly. Here are just some of the secrets that event planners know about picking the right venue for your event.
Your big day is coming up, and you've hired a wedding planner London to make sure that everything goes smoothly. After all, it's important that everything goes according to plan.
If you want to plan a special event, be it a wedding, anniversary or a corporate event, the UK has literally thousands of fantastic locations to choose from. But if you’re thinking of going further afield, then Europe is right on your doorstep. This is where a luxury destination event planner can help.
When it comes to planning where you’ll get married, many couples dream of a venue in the heart of the countryside or even a barefoot ceremony on an exotic beach. A city wedding doesn’t usually spring to mind as a top choice.
Today is one of the most popular days of the year for proposals so congratulations to everyone who say's yes today. To celebrate and spread the love today we're sharing a few of our favourite shots from some of the very lovely couples we've helped to say I do over the years! Happy Valentine's Day!
If you’re struggling to think of a romantic honeymoon destination and can’t face the stress of a long haul flight then Tuscany in Italy could be the ideal place for you.
Whether it’s a wedding, an anniversary or a birthday celebration, we all love a good party. Ultimately, the most important goal for anyone organising a party or planning an event, no matter how elaborate or informal, is that their guests have a great time.
I always feel fortunate to do a job that I love. I mention this quite a lot, but it really is true. Planning weddings and events for a living is pretty awesome. I'm also fortunate to work with some wonderful people, including the team of people that help at our events but also the most amazing clients...
Only a short drive from the heart of London, Sussex is perfectly placed and easily accessible to major motorway networks and international airports, yet once in the heart of the country, you’ll feel like you’re a million miles from anywhere.
What a wonderful year it's been! From parties in pretty tents in the beautiful Surrey countryside, Hampshire weddings in the glorious New Forest, more lavish London weddings and parties, my first Engage in Italy, a fresh new website, and so much more in between...it's been pretty special with so many highlights.
Many couples assume that hiring a wedding planner is a luxury and added expense they can’t afford. The truth is that a wedding planner will not only relieve the stress of organising your wedding but can be realistic from the outset about the type of budget you need to achieve the wedding you want, and also help keep this on track.
My feet have just touched the floor after returning from Engage!16 last week. What an incredible three days. I mentioned on the blog previously that I was heading out to Puglia in Italy for the luxury wedding business summit, which was held at Borgo Egnazia in the South Eastern Region of Italy.
I'm on countdown in the office, as in two weeks I'll be in Italy at the Engage!16 Europe conference! I'm thrilled to be attending, and more so as it's the first time Engage have brought the luxury business summit to Europe.
As a wedding planner I get to visit many beautiful venues and attend lots of lovely events, just one of the reasons I love my job. Last week I was invited to the wedding showcase at Leeds Castle, in Kent...
Earlier this summer we had the pleasure of planning Pippa and Craig's wedding. On a beautiful summers day, Pippa and Craig were married at one of our favourite venues, Chewton Glen...
Last night I had the pleasure of visiting Fenchurch Restaurant, and what an absolute treat. The restaurant is in the Sky Garden on the 37th floor of 20 Fenchurch (the cool walkie talkie building) in the City in Central London. The three-floor Sky Garden space is home to London's highest public landscaped gardens, two restaurants...
