Member Focus – Pearline Events
So happy to be able to introduce your to Pearline Events, one of our associate members, over to you Natasha….
How did it all start?
Pearline Events started out of my love for organising weddings and parties over the years. I had been thinking about starting my business for a while, but it was only after having my son that I decided it was time to do something that I love and am passionate about. Plus, I wanted to be my own boss!
Planning a wedding can be so much fun, it is hard work too though! I love seeing the warmth and joy that a wedding brings, as you celebrate with family and friends, eating, dancing and just enjoying spending time with your loved ones.
Life has many ups and downs, so when you have a wedding to celebrate why not do it in style. Life is worth celebrating!
Do you have a favourite venue?
There are so many to choose from! I appreciate a range of venues. I am particularly drawn to country houses. More than anything I love elegant venues with space, that gives you options with how it can be transformed.
How would clients describe you?
Friendly, helpful, hardworking and a good listener. More than anything I have been described as calm under pressure.
Wedding planners or suppliers you particularly admire?
There are too many to choose from, I admire everyone that works in this industry and are small business owners. I have met some amazing planners and suppliers. Lots of them are already members of the UKAWP, so I am in the right place!
How do you unwind?
By spending time with my family, chilling or watching box sets with my hubby. Or taking some ‘me’ time and getting a back massage – heaven! I also enjoy visiting spas, when I get the time.
What trends are you seeing for 2019?
The importance of personalising a wedding will remain key, focusing on the fine details. For 2019 I think there will be a lot of flowers, floral hoops and an emphasis on bold colour schemes.
What is your signature dish?
I do a mean macaroni cheese, I do love pasta dishes! I also like to cook lamb curry.
Whose celebrity wedding (dead or alive) would you love work on?
I appreciate elegant and stylish weddings with a twist. So, I would love to have worked on George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s wedding. A couple who display timeless elegance!
What is your vice?
Anything sweet – particularly jam doughnuts, Cadburys dairy milk chocolate and popcorn! I have a very sweet tooth!
