How did you get started in weddings?
I worked in London in the corporate events banking industry for five years. I managed events in London, Europe and the Middle East during this time. These events were fast paced, high powered and edgy but often lacked scope for creativity in terms of decor, flowers and personal touch. Weddings, I felt would offer the opportunity to add the personal touch and the softness lacking from the corporate space. And so Tickled Pink Wedding and Events was born four years ago to offer a very personal and specialised wedding planning service to clients for their unique weddings. I often felt that it was hard to turn my vision into reality and I wanted to be able to bridge this gap between clients and suppliers, and be able to offer this service and possibility to my clients. I wanted to be able to go the extra mile for them and make it come true.
What inspires you?
Colour, I LOVE colour! Chic and stylish flowers, decor and design, beautiful venues with wonderful views, the African bush, candlelight, going on safari, Africa, conservation and making the world a better place, gardens, the sea, mountains, travel, Italy, France, history, new and wonderful places, people and adventures.
Favourite place in South Africa?
Tough one – there are many… Johannesburg for its super friendly people and electric vibe. The lowveld – the Kruger National Park and Sabi Sand Game Reserve, to name a few. The Eastern Cape – Kenton On Sea and the Transkei. Cape Town – I studied here and always love revisiting the mountains, beaches, penguins, sea and vistas.
What advice would you give to brides and grooms?
Do not sweat the small stuff. Decide what makes you happy and what you both really want for your wedding first. The detail is nice to have but do not let it take over you and your relationship/s. (It really is not worth it.) Couples often do not realise the amount of time and effort it takes to plan a wedding so do yourself a favour and hire a professional wedding planner to ensure you enjoy the wedding build up and actual day. Many couples lose sight as to what is important and actually the ceremony and coming together is the most magical part of your wedding day (surrounded by your family and friends).
