As a modern wedding planning, my goal is to design and plan unique and chic celebrations, steeped in style and romance.
I work with contemporary and creative couples who love a sense of adventure. From a magical beach wedding to a city sleek celebration, the common thread tying all my clients together is their desire to create a modern celebration that’s personal and distinctive to them.
What is Modern-Day Romance?
For me, designing a modern wedding should be done through a new lens. Blending everyday inspirations such as interiors, fashion and travel to create a truly unique aesthetic.
Modern weddings are also so much more than just the one day celebration. It’s spreading the party across an entire weekend, inviting guests to multiple events. It’s choosing a unique venue or a far-flung destination off the beaten track. It’s treating your guests to an experience they’ll never forget.
After all, if you’re a creative couple you won’t want a cookie-cutter wedding, you’ll want a celebration that reflects everything you are when you’re together – crazy in love and wild at heart.
Why Do I Love Planning Them?
Encouraging couples to dream big and embrace their personal style is so important to the wedding planning partnership.
I recently worked with Amelia and Javi to plan their Spanish destination wedding in Cadiz, Spain. Both talented designers with a strong sense of style, they were inspired by Miami Beach but wanted a modern-day twist on the art deco theme.
As a result, we opted for a pastel colour palette paired with painted palms and pineapples. Pink glassware and gold cutlery kept the quirky décor looking luxe. Guests were asked to attend wearing pastel colours and instead of a traditional guest book we tied hundreds of coloured ribbons to a tree. Friends and family could attach messages on postcards designed by the bride.
Amelia and Javi are a perfect example of a creative couple who weren’t afraid to push the boundaries.
