MEET

SIOBHAN

A VERY WARM

WELCOME

Hello! So this is me!

Creator, designer, planner, organiser and lover of all things weddings and events. I know it totally sounds cheesy, but I just want to make the world a happier place and I feel I do that with one wedding and event at a time!

I’ve always been slightly obsessed with organisation and design, so being able to do this every day and help others with the planning, the styling and the logistical part of planning a wedding or event, is a dream come true for me!

I know how challenging and stressful doing anything that you’ve never done before can be. So, I created a service that would take that stress away from you, leaving you to enjoy the finer things (and all the fun things) in all things weddings and events, no matter what stage you are at on your journey.

A FEW THINGS TO GET TO

KNOW ME BETTER

01.

WHERE YOU’LL FIND ME…

I live with my amazing South African husband and our gorgeous (but terribly stout (naughty)) cat Bella in a small town on the west-side of Greater London. (You’ll often see her feature on my Insta stories!)

My days off are mostly spent with my husband, our friends and our family, either chatting over coffee, braai-ing (no matter what the weather) or just relaxing.

I love to run. There’s something really therapeutic about being able to run super early in the morning when no-one’s up yet. I can totally relax and unwind but at the same time, I come back feeling inspired and raring to go!

02.

WHY SOUTH AFRICA…

Is a question I’ve been asked a few times, as I’m not actually South African (though I’ve been mistaken for a South African a few times before – I’m pretty sure my accent changes when I speak to different people).

Years ago now, I randomly met a few South African people who quickly became very close friends of mine.

Then, from a chance meeting and a long-standing friendship, I also fell in love with my now husband.

The first time I visited South Africa I fell in love with the country (though I do think I was probably slightly in love with the country before I had even visited, seeing as my husband and my 2 best friends came from there).

The beautiful landscapes, the warm weather, the laidback lifestyle, the amazing people and the welcome I received, was all I needed.

And my love affair with South Africa was born.

03.

HOW IT ALL STARTED…

It all started just over 10 years ago when I was given an amazing opportunity to work in a 4* Deluxe Hotel, in Central London, as their Event Coordinator.

Having known nothing about events or hotels at that point, (having come from running a bar in St. Katherine’s Dock), it was here I learnt everything from scratch and was lucky enough to have found my passion. And from that point onwards, there was no looking back.

Since then I’ve coordinated, organised and managed hundreds of different types of events, including weddings, charity galas, live music performances, conferences, award dinners, launch parties and press and PR events.
