FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
"I love working on events that are 'all about the details'. I will help you find those ribbons, in that particular shade; source the cutlery you saw at a recent wedding fair; create bespoke cake stands, ceremony back drops and installations to wow your guests; and find the perfect visual suppliers including; florists, stationery designers, cake makers and more, to complement our event design and styling."
I have always had a PASSION for styling events. This passion first started when designing and styling my own wedding in 2009 and family celebrations thereafter. I have always been creative and loved designing and making. I studied a BA (Hons) in Printed Textiles and Surface Decoration and trained then trained to teach in 2003. In 2007 I became Head of Technology and Art in a large secondary school, teaching and managing many creative subjects. After my twins were born, I decided teaching would keep me away from my family more than I wanted and Party Squared began.
The most important parts of my job are understanding and interpreting your VISION and sourcing beautiful pieces for my hire collection. I work hard to find our your needs and how I can realise your dream event, even if you are not sure what it looks like yet!
I work with clients and couples who either have plenty of ideas, or no ideas at all! Like you, clients are looking for a stylist to help bring all the VISUAL ELEMENTS of their event together or are looking for particularly styling details that as yet you have been unable to find.
I love working on INSPIRATION boards for couples who are planning their wedding, creating event look books and sourcing suitable visual suppliers. Whether it be a CONTEMPORARY and ELEGANT wedding in an exclusive use wedding venue in the South East of England, a 50th birthday celebration at home or in a marquee in the garden, a quirky outdoor wedding ceremony or private party in a local Essex restaurant, each event is designed and styled for each individual client.
I aim to create events to remember, with beautiful, elegant modern styling, personalised with bespoke props, signage and CREATIVE INSTALLATIONS. If that is what you are looking for, you've come to the right place. Call me to discover more or click to view my services.
My focus for summer/autumn is decorating larger venues and on floral installations, in collaboration with The Botanical Shed. I have a new wedding table décor collection launching in the new year, influenced by bold contemporary interiors. I'll also be planning and working on plenty of STYLED SHOOTS the next being at That Amazing Place, Essex so keep checking back on the EDITORIALS for new features and inspiration.
