My best insider tip for brides-to-be
There will always be the “we have to have…” or “we need to do…” Break tradition and think outside the box. Spend your time investigating in what is special to the two of you. Your day goes by too quickly and you’ll be happy to spend your time on things that will make you the happiest to look back on.
What I love most about my job
The creativity. Nothing is more rewarding than developing a unique creative concept and vision and seeing it come to life. Personalizing and making each event one-of-a-kind is a challenge, but it is the most rewarding feeling to see the final product.
My favourite spot in the city
Anywhere that has good food, an abundance of Champagne and great company.
