Meet Professional Planner Member – Fusion Events and Weddings
Thrilled to be able to introduce you with one of our Professional Planner members Fusion Events and Weddings, tell us about yourself Michelle…
Tell us about your journey into weddings?
Working in event management from the age of 16 I knew I had a passion for attention to detail and loved working with people, building relationships and creating events that were not only memorable but truly immersive experiences. In 2009 was asked by a friend to step in to plan their wedding with just three months’ notice. That wedding taught me so much in a short space of time, but most importantly it confirmed to me that wedding planning was my thing. I loved it, everything about it. Working alongside a couple to bring their dream day to a reality, there really isn’t anything better.
Describe your favourite wedding location (beach / city / country)
I love working in the countryside, there are just so many options available to you. I live in an area of outstanding natural beauty, and am spoilt with the amount of amazing venues and suppliers in my local area.
Ultimate wedding theme you’d love to be a part of
It sounds cheesy, and is very far from my usual style, maybe that’s why… I’d love to work with a Disney theme, taking a fairy tale story and weaving through the day, making personal to the couple, their friends and family.
What 3 words would clients use to describe you?
Trusted, knowledgeable and joyful
How do you unwind?
A long walk, on my own in the countryside, headphones on, listening to music I grew up with, singing out loud.
Best piece of business advice given?
Listen. A client, and now friend of mine once said to me that the single most important thing in business (and I believe life) is to listen. Whether it’s a couple, supplier or family member, listening to what someone has to say tells you so much about a situation and gives you with the knowledge that you need to react or not as the case can sometimes be.
Tell us something random about you
My first pet as an adult was a green amazon parrot, he was the most adorable thing and I miss him dearly.
