I hate these things! Remember your very first interview and they say 'tell me about you?!' My friends will tell you I'm an extrovert, but writing about myself is possibly the last thing I'd rather be doing...! Originally from Oxford in the UK, I came over to Australia with $500 to my name, a friend's couch to sleep on when I landed and absolutely no clue what I was going to do. Fast forward 8 years and here we are, another country, a new life and a new business to boot. I am married, been with my Aussie hunk for 6 years and he is my rock. He has supported me unconditionally, and despite my flair for drama and my outgoing personality, he's the ying to my yang, the peanut butter to my jelly, he keeps me grounded and I love him more than ever. We have 3 fur kids, Tony, Lottie and Pablo, who keep us very busy, who despite being tiny chihuahuas STILL need 2 walks a day! We have 1 fake plant because I kill ANYTHING GREEN and far too many cushions on our couch - my husband will tell you to your face he hates them but secretly he's a cushion lover. My first job was in a clothes store - hated it. I was there a week. Then I moved to a cafe down the road and I feel like I'd found my calling. I ran a department store cafe for 3 years from the age of 17, upgraded to 5* hotels and even went and got a degree in hospitality. I walked into events by mistake and my world changed forever. I did my work experience at my uncle's audio visual company and fell in love with how sound and lighting can absolutely elevate an event from 1 to 100. My mother also took a flower arranging course when I was young; she'd come home with the most amazing floral pieces for our hallway table and that's where I fell in love with flowers. Coming from a very theatrical family - my uncle's a professional actor and my cousins on broadway so yes I'm a drama queen at heart! - events are absolutely my theatrical creative outlet. Events are crazy beautiful - they can be anything you want them to be because every client brief is so different, and I have the most amazing clients. Since I took the leap and went out on my own I've never been happier, because the people I'm working with are incredible. The adrenalin rush is like no other, it's so exciting and watching all the work come together is legit the best feeling. Believe me I know, weddings, events, parties, they can be so expensive and spending all your hard earned cash on 1 day can sometimes seem like a massive stretch. My aim is to take all your stress away, making sure your comfortable with that expenditure spending it in the right places with the right people, creating the day you absolutely love and having a fantastic time doing it. Spend time with those who dance, sing, drink gin and eat cake. And I shall happily do all 4 with you. Axx
