About me

My 15 years of event planning experience aligned with, my highly creative skills and meticulous attention to detail will make a profound difference in your planning process.

Having organised many weddings I have developed a strong insight that impacts my budgeting, operations management, team coordination and production logistics to make your zero-waste wedding work.

My work ethic reflects my can-do-attitude and passions for party planning and the planet. From music to types of celebration, suppliers, special diets and religious requests, I handle everything in a calm, considerate and respectful way.

Why I do this

Raising awareness and doing it with grace

Looking at the waste and damage to the environment traditional weddings can create, I knew it was time to offer something very different. Now, more than ever before we need to respect the earth and my company has this at the very heart of everything we do. That doesn’t mean we have to compromise on style when planning a sustainable wedding. With the correct tools and advice your wedding can be stunning, memorable and environmentally friendly.

If you want an elegant, stylish, welcoming and sustainable wedding then we can ensure that these qualities are present throughout your whole planning process and on your wedding day.

These are key skills I am looking forward to sharing with you as we plan your wedding.
