Wedding Planning Services
Never one to sit still I think I have been planning and organizing since the day I could walk and talk! It was no wonder I started my career in Hotel Management working at London’s finest ‘Park Lane Hotel’ on Piccadilly. I soon progressed and by the time I was 21 I was already heading up Banqueting divisions in London & South Africa!
I moved into a Corporate Career after having my daughter, (too many years ago to mention) working in Human Resources and heading up departments of 100+ staff and managing external vendors which has given me both management and negotiation skills, which come in very handy when working with Wedding Vendors.
It was important for me to be a professionally qualified Wedding Planner and I achieved ‘highest honors’ in gaining my Diploma in Bridal Consulting, as well as holding the title of ‘Professional Bridal Consultant’ with the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC). In addition I am certified with the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada, and in January of 2011 along with 3 other great Montreal Wedding Planners we founded the Association of Montreal Professional Wedding Designers – creating a platform and raising the profile of ‘professional’ Montreal wedding planners.
So some things you may not know about me… I’m British, born close to Windsor Castle on the outskirts of London and moved to Montreal in 2003, I am related to ‘Sir Stafford Cripps’ who was the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer to Sir Winston Churchill… I absolutely adore Reuben’s Smoked Meat Poutine, I love to sing – but sadly can’t and one day I would love to take a course in becoming a ‘Sommelier’. I have a beautiful daughter who is currently studying at Concordia University and my other babies are ‘Roxie’, a Shitzhu/Yorkie and ‘Shadow’ my fluffy grey cat!
