Member Focus – JHay Creative
Delighted to be able to introduce you to JHay Creative, one of our London luxury wedding planners. Over to you Jessica….
How did it all start?
Having been in the industry for 7 years, I began my career by working within a venue and catering company, growing my expertise and honing my skills in event planning. I believe imagination goes a long way to creating the ultimate event and having an eye for detail is key.
Do you have a favourite venue?
How would clients describe you?
Efficient, imaginative, detailed, and structured.
Wedding planners or suppliers you particularly admire?
I admire the large production companies such as Banana Split, Just Seventy and also Karen Tran
How do you unwind?
I unwind by binge watching series such as Walking Dead, Grey’s Anatomy and Charmed
What trends are you seeing for 2018/19?
Tropical came in the first half of 2018, a trend that has picked up slightly for the summer of 2018 are yellows, created in the right way, can look spectacular. I think for 2019 we will see more of the silvers and whites, white to tone down the metallic but silvers to create more of a crystallised effect.
What is your signature dish?
My signature dish would be honey and garlic roasted chicken with roast potatoes and vegetables
Whose celebrity wedding (dead or alive) would you love work on?
I would have loved to have design a wedding for Marilyn Monroe. I think, like her, the wedding would be sophisticated, elegant and fabulous.
What is your vice?
Eating too many sweet things, I have a big sweet tooth and I sometimes end up eating far too much sugary things.
