Behind all the gorgeous details and the numerous planning spreadsheets, there are also the most talented and hard working people I work alongside for every celebration. A perfect wedding team are not only incredible and passionate about what they do but are also an absolute joy to work with and deliver the very best results. There are so many wedding industry colleagues who have supported Carmen Weddings right from the beginning – if I am to list them all, I’d be here forever! To give you a taste of what it can be like, one wedding alone, my team and I managed a wedding with over 150 team members on site – bringing to life a spectacular day. Through Carmen Weddings I’ve been fortunate to have met and continue to meet fantastic people. I would like to give special thanks to some wonderful colleagues who have been a part of the weddings I’ve planned and managed. Individually and together, we all continue to bring brides & grooms an amazing experience during the planning, on the day and for many years after.
Sarah Gawler Photography
A talented photographer with a natural flair in capturing beautiful details and moments. Sarah’s not only a wonderful person to work with but her calm nature puts you at ease instantly. My clients and I love her style – romantic, elegant and genuine. Her portfolio is filled with inspirational captures. Documenting moments which I consider to be true art and timeless, yet always a true reflection of the special event. I remember the very first time I met Sarah, we had an in-depth chat about the wedding plans and afterwards I remember feeling like I had known Sarah for a long time; just like old friends! If there is anything else I could add, I think sharing our clients thoughts would round this off nicely… quite simply, I just know how delighted they are with those special memories captured for a lifetime and beyond.
Michele Gledhill Flowers & Styling
A truly gifted florist and event stylist – please meet Michele! I was fortunate enough to meet Michele when I first launched Carmen Weddings. Having worked together on many weddings and inspirational shoots over the last five years, Michele always deliver to the highest of standards and more. Her style is natural, beautiful yet elegant all at the same time. When searching for a florist, it’s so important that they understand your vision – and since Michele and I have a similar style, we work together very well in delivering spectacular wedding pretties to our clients!
Michele spent a number of years living in Canada – during this time, she inherited the wonderful art of creating beautiful bouquets and floral arrangements, however, what makes her different is her personal love for the beautiful details that makes a wedding magnificent.
I would also like to thank Michele for her continued support… plus the lovely lunch dates we manage to squeeze in between weddings and home life!
UK ALLIANCE OF WEDDING PLANNERS
After a lot of soul searching, Autumn 2009 was the very start of my wedding planning business journey. It was also during this time when I trained with the UKAWP which resulted in me knowing I was definitely heading in the right direction within my career path!
I receive many requests asking for career advice and I’ve never hesitated in advising that they should consider training with the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners. The Alliance, owned and run by two experienced planners, Sandy and Bernadette, was launched to promote professionalism within the wedding planning industry. Not only did my training confirm that launching Carmen Weddings was exactly what I wanted, over the years, I receive great joy in knowing that they continue to drive the industry forward by promoting professionalism in a unregulated industry but also continue to support new and established planners.
CORAL & STONE PHOTOGRAPHY
Jade and Emma – two of the loveliest ladies and photographers you could possibly meet! Together they run Coral & Stone who captured my images that you’ll find on my About page. I love how much passion and love they have for their work – whether it’s for weddings, professional images, family shoots and of course adorable baby shoots. When shooting together, you just know that not one precious moment will be missed. You also know that the details you have spent so many evenings deciding on will be captured. You just know that you can put your complete trust in them so you can fully relax knowing it’s going to be nothing other than perfection.
