Why I chose to be a Wedding Planner
This is a personal post from me, I'd love to explain my 'why' and a little history about me and why I decided to be a wedding planner.
I've worked in various roles over the last 16 years including waitressing, sales, account management and client services. The one thing they all have in common is people. I love working with clients and providing exceptional service. I worked in the corporate world until 2021 when I launched my wedding planning business.
In January 2021, I became a mother. Having my daughter completely changed my priorities and view on life. I realised that life is too short to be working at a job that you like, but don't love.
Becoming a parent was the hardest thing I have ever done, so if I could survive this, I knew I could do anything!
One evening I was watching television with my husband, and on the screen was a wedding planner. As the programme went on, I thought 'I could do that!' The more I thought about it, the more I realised that this could be the perfect job for me. I already have years of experience in client services, planning my wedding was one of the most enjoyable projects I'd done, and I could work flexibly around my family.
I married my husband in March 2019. We had a little church wedding in the Northamptonshire countryside. We then celebrated with our closest family and friends at a nearby venue, Crockwell Farm.
Our wedding day was the best day of my life! I'm not even exaggerating, I was on a high the whole day. When else will you have all your favourite people in the world, all together, celebrating your love?! Every guest had a smile on their face and even to this day, I still get comments saying how much fun they had at our wedding.
I want every bride and groom to feel how I felt on my wedding day! This is my 'why' and if you would like to book a call to chat about how I can help you plan your dream wedding, click the link below.
