Wow what an incredible set up
Sam at South Coast Events transformed our Ballroom into the most magnificent Circus, Greatest Showman Style. With ceiling drapping, festoon lighting, huge letters chair covers, and custom table centres it met the clients brief spot on and then some.

What is your most memorable wedding?

I couldn't pick just one. I LOVE every single wedding and the lovely couples, parents and friends I get to meet and spend time with. And yes, I still cry at pretty much every ceremony or during the speeches!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, Organised, Honest, Realistic, Practical

What about your business are you most proud of?

100% client satisfaction

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

There are so many things but it's so nice when friends and family have been involved with making the cake or designing the invitations etc.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

A drink at the pub or a coffee shop with a casual chat to talk about what the couple are looking to achieve for their wedding. The more I can get to know people, the easier it is to get the feel of what they'd like.

What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?

Having Oompah Loompahs to dance with the guests after the first dance!

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

Keep everything relaxed with constant communication.

What do you love most about your job?

Make a budget before anything else. Then make a 'must-have' list and a 'would-be-nice-to-have' list. This will help you prioritise and keep on track.

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

The wonderful people we get to meet!
