Member Focus – Audrey Ametis Weddings
Today we introduce you to Audrey who runs Audrey Ametis Weddings. Over to you Audrey…..
- How did it all start?
- I decided to take the leap of faith after organising my own wedding in Mayfair last August 2016. I have always loved planning and getting well organised (picked up those skills from my mother). I trained as a lawyer, there are lots of transferable skills as a planner! Oh.. and also thanks to an interesting dream from my husband! Contact me if you are interested to know more!
- Do you have a favourite venue?
- My favourite venue is the one chosen by the clients, the one that makes their heart beat when they see it.
The Lanesborough in Knightsbridge, the Ritz, the Dorchester, Claridge’s, Blenheim Palace, the Lansdowne Club in Mayfair, whether in London or overseas, Shangri-La Singapore, Plaza Athénée Paris, Peninsula, Four Seasons, One & Only Royal Mirage Dubai.. we are spoiled for choice!
How would clients describe you?
Audrey provides an exquisite service with a radiant smile (it is my smile they see first, I have been told, the positive energy and determination to find solutions).
Wedding planners or suppliers you particularly admire?
There are so many gifted persons in the industry but I would say Preston Bailey, Sarah Haywood, Mark Niemierko, and Bruce Russell for the planners; Philippa Lepley, Vera Wang for the dress designers; for cake designers, I am in awe and wonder with Elizabeth Solaru of Elizabeth Cake Emporium. A gem and such a nice person.
How do you unwind?
Relaxing with my husband and Magsy (my cat); Pilates ..although I should go more often!
What trends are you seeing for 2017/18?
Floral dresses with colours; Brides will just go with the flow, create their own trends and choose what they want. Love it!
What is your signature dish?
Will need to think about it. I am French Caribbean, living in London, lived in Dubai..so many amazing foods I’ve tasted worldwide and tried to re-create.
Whose celebrity wedding (dead or alive) would you love work on?
What is your vice?
I shall not disclose it without the presence of an attorney!! But I can give you a hint: it starts with the letter “M”..
