What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Time flies when your having fun! Plan your days activities (hair, makeup, pre ceremony photos) starting from your ceremony working backwards. Allocate the amount of time needed and you’ll see what time you need to start to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Describe your typical process with a couple.
If my couples request a design and style consultation they will visit my showroom and we will discuss everything from colour palettes to themes. We concentrate on how they would like their day to feel and then I create a mood board and design plan for them. They can either adapt of give me the thumbs up.
I then arrive at the venue on the day to set everything up according to my couples wishes and then return later to uninstall, leaving them free to enjoy their day.
