Five Minutes With…
What’s something you’d love every couple to know about the work you do?
My collection has been put together with a love and passion for vintage tableware, and each piece is unique.
How do you create a great experience for your couples?
I listen to my client’s ideas and encourage them to choose their own pieces based on their wedding day vision, helping them match by colour scheme, style or quantity. I also always follow up before their wedding or event to ask if they have any questions or need to make any changes.
What should couples keep in mind when planning this part of their wedding?
Collect pictures from magazines or social media and take these with you to any meetings you have. This makes the process simpler in bringing your vision to life.
What excites you most about working in this space?
Working in the wedding industry just makes me happy! Having my beautiful pieces displayed on dessert tables, wedding reception tables and bridal high tea tables gives me great satisfaction, and when the couples return with wonderful reviews, well that’s just icing on the cake!
What three pieces of advice do you have for couples in the midst of wedding planning?
1. Plan and book well ahead.
2. Don’t be afraid to ask any questions that you may have concerns about.
3. Don’t stress, your day will be beautiful!
