It's almost Christmas here in London and a bit on the cold side, but we're still feeling the sun from our recent trip to Marrakech. We were in the beautiful Red City just a few months ago, visiting some fabulous venues...
Last week I had the pleasure of attending the luxury wedding business summit Engage!17, in Venice. An incredible week spent with the best of the best in the international wedding and event industry.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
