Be inspired by this girl boss making her business dreams a reality! Amy was one of our original interns, we are so proud of her, and she has so earned her wedding planning and styling stripes. This feature is a Saturday night treat; enjoy.
Day 11 ….
I was known for two things as I was growing up; my love for lists and my obsession with highlighting everything (and I mean everything). Apparently to everyone around me, friends, teachers and family, this meant I was destined for organisational greatness.
With a first class degree in events management, 4 years in corporate hospitality under my belt and a subscription to brides magazine I decided the area I really wanted to work in was the wedding industry.
I enrolled on a course at the UK Academy of Wedding and Event Planning to expand my understanding of the industry, and that is how I met Pamella Dunn; an amazingly charismatic and generous individual both with her time and her knowledge. My first day working with Pamella was on a double wedding over Valentine’s Day weekend (no pressure then) at two very different venues with two very different concepts. Seeing her passion and love for the job and her commitment for perfection really motivated me and emphasised this is what I wanted to do. I wanted to makes peoples dream day a reality. Pamella pushed me to set up my own business and truly made me believe I could succeed.
A couple of years later and that’s where I am now. I am the extremely proud owner of Something New, a wedding planning and styling business. We have an ever expanding catalogue of beautifully rustic wedding props to hire and a keen eye for detail. Combine that with our clients ideas, taste and love story and you have got yourself the perfect combination to create an unforgettable day.
FUTUREOver the last couple of years I have been lucky enough to work with some gorgeous couples at some truly stunning venues. And what is next for Something New? We have some really exciting projects in the pipeline which I can’t wait to share with you all, a diary full of wedding fairs and some very exciting weddings spread across the country. I know it is just the beginning for us.
