Member Focus – Louise Perry Weddings

Today we are pleased to introduce Louise of Louise Perry Weddings…..lou wall

How did it all start?

I have been working in the wedding industry for ten years now with my wedding band, One Foot in the Groove. I spend a lot time with my clients planning the music for their big day and over the years I found myself recommending suppliers, advising on timings and helping them with their plans. It was then I realised that maybe I could do this for a living. At some point I knew I would have to hang up my microphone up and I knew I wanted to stay in the industry

Do you have a favourite venue?

I have performed at so many. Gaynes Park Barn in Epping is lovely as is Blake Hall in Ongar. I like a barn, I also love a marquee wedding

How would clients describe you?

Organised and calm. They always say they feel reassured after they have spoken to me about something

Wedding planner/s you admire?

Bernadette at Dream Occasions work was one of the reasons I decided to train with the UKAWP. She is meticulously organized and Lisa Baker at Just Bespoke has been so helpful to me, giving me advice and buying me coffee at least once a month!

How do you unwind?

That I struggle with, however I am a football fanatic so I love to watch a game, any game.

What themes are you working on for 2013/14?

The Summer village fete is proving to be very popular.

What trends are you seeing?

A lot more brides are looking for a more relaxed feel to their day. No big table decorations, They want BBQ’s and Hog roasts, as opposed to sit down wedding breakfasts.

What is your signature dish?

Roast dinner. I make the best roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings ever

Whose celebrity wedding (dead or alive) would you love to design?

I’m an adopted Essex girl, so secretly I love a bit of bling and I love football so I’d have to say a wag wedding, I don’t mind who

Is the job as glamorous as you thought?

It’s not glamorous at all and anyone who thinks it is should see me climbing ladders trying to fix fairy lights to beams.

What is your vice?

I have a sweet tooth, so anything with sugar especially wedding cake!
