Every great achiever is inspired by a great mentor ..

We have a number of awards but more importantly we have a vast wealth of experience, knowledge  and relationships within the wedding and events industry.  Whilst planning and delivering weddings from small intimate affairs, large luxury venues to extreme outdoor festival style weddings, we also work for and support the industry providing training, professional speaking, media appearances and Vanessa represents the wider industry by sitting on the standards board for the Wedding and Events Industry Ombudsman.

“Vanessa and Dom were a joy to work with and have as mentors. The practical experiences I gained with them really helped to consolidate everything I had learnt about the wedding industry and enable me to put it into practice. They also taught me many lessons that you only truly learn by getting stuck in on the job alongside highly experienced professionals. They gave me the confidence to turn my knowledge into a career and to take the leap into setting up my own business which I am now proud to be growing.” Hannah Mullens – Green Soul Weddings
