Having graduated with an honours degree in law and after a brief stint at a London law firm, I quickly realized that a 9 to 5 desk job was not for me. I’d always been creatively inclined and a chilled out weekend to me was spent party & event planning for friends & family. I was far happier drawing up table plans and choosing pretty place settings rather than pouring over stuffy, old case law in a dusty office.

Cliched as it may sound, I wanted to win hearts not cases; I wanted to arrange beautiful marriages not get embroiled in messy divorces. And so I joined my family travel business where I set up the destination weddings department which quickly led to Bride Gibraltar.

I started out with childrens’ parties such as a Willy Wonka themed garden party with chocolate ‘flowers’ & giant lollipops growing out of the chocolate soil; edible liquorice slugs; sweets and savouries hanging from real branches and a chocolate river in which the children could actually swim (and eat!). The invites were Willy Wonka chocolate bars complete with a Golden Ticket inside with the event details.

Another such party took place on board a ship which set sail along the River Thames with 100 children only to find that the birthday boy’s mother and her friends were left on the pier chatting! A speedboat rushed the ladies to the ship in time for the cake cutting!

Not just for children, an amazing night was a 40th birthday party, Vegas style. Showgirls, topless butlers, flair bartenders & mixologists, a magician, DJ and, of course, a full casino were the order of the night. The invites were printed on a pack of gold plated playing cards.

My most memorable wedding to date was one which took place in the beautiful English countryside with 478 guests in attendance. Not only were the guests fed five times from 40 live cooking stations during the day but they were entertained by the world renowned, award winning violinist, Kiki Chen and her fusion string quartet, a dancing girl troupe flown in from Russia, a flash mob, drummers, a live band and the obligatory DJ. Needless to say, a fabulous time was had by all 😊

It’s not always about the biggest, baddest event though. Sometimes, the most perfect events are the most intimate ones such as a couple I married who had known each for 29 years and finally decided to tie the knot in Gibraltar with just the two of them in attendance. The groom had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and they told me they did not have much time to plan ahead. There was not a dry eye in the house as they both took their vows.

So it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Bride Gibraltar and I thank you for considering me as your wedding planner. Please feel free to email me on info@bridegibraltar.co.uk with any questions or for a quote.
I’m really looking forward to being a part of the most important day of your lives!

With love
