Describe your typical process with a couple.
Initial meeting (once they have viewed my brochure) is at their home or venue. They tell me everything they are looking for, if I cannot provide it myself, I can usually point them in the right direction! I then go away and produce an itemised quote, once they are happy we proceed with the booking. I then stay in contact with them as often as they need on the run up to their wedding. We have a final meeting 4-6 weeks before their wedding. I then attend their venue to decorate for them and arrange for collection from the venue.
What is the best themed wedding you have worked at?
A Lego themed wedding. From a distance the wedding looked like a traditional, subtly decorated wedding - but when guests took a closer look they discovered Lego men & Lego diamonds within the table centres, the cake had a hidden Lego layer and even the first dance was to 'everything is awesome'
What are the decorative trends with brides currently?
Natural flowers, greens, pinks & blues are popular
What is your signature finishing touch?
Attention to detail. I only leave a wedding when I know the decoration is set up the way my couple want (the way I would want wedding to be)
What decoration do you think every wedding needs?
A happy, relaxed couple. I have decorated weddings with budgets big and small and I know the most memorable ones are the ones that are personal to the couple and the ones that the couples were able to include their loved ones in.
