Member Focus – The Wedding Planners
Delighted to able to introduce you to the The Wedding Planners, tell us about yourselves Caroline and Victoria…
How did it all start?
When you do the same job, have the same interests and are practically BFF’s – why wouldn’t you join forces to create awesome weddings for wonderful clients together?!
Do you have a favourite venue?
We’ve been fortunate to work in many of the great venues in the East of England, it’s hard to choose just one. We’ve loved working with the team at Milsom Weddings across their fabulous collection of venues, we also love the modern style renovation of the historical Tudor Barn, Belstead and are currently working on weddings there.
How would clients describe you?
Happy, fun and easy going, but calm and collected when necessary.
Wedding planners or suppliers you particularly admire?
We’ve both worked with fellow UKAWP members Dreamwave Events for several years and always have a fab time on any wedding where we work together – they are so forward thinking with everything they do, and the team couldn’t be nicer… We <3 Dreamwave.
How do you unwind?
At the end of a long wedding day we will often be found driving home in our slippers sharing a bag of chocolate raisins and a slice of wedding cake!
What trends are you seeing for 2018/19?
We’re seeing more textures and materials like velvet, marble and perspex coming into weddings this year. Foliage will continue to be really popular and classic meets modern fusion.
What is your signature dish?
Tori is our resident chef (!) – you can’t beat her classic pollo carbonara, with chocolate orange ganache to follow. Delizioso!
Whose celebrity wedding (dead or alive) would you love work on?
We adore stylish, elegant weddings that aren’t afraid to make a statement. We would have loved to work with George Clooney & Amal on their wedding.
What is your vice?
Tea, macaroons, Prosecco and gin, but not necessarily in that order!
