Introducing Pamella Dunn Brand Ambassador Victoria of Hummingbird Occasions

On Tuesday and Wednesday we featured two amazing new wedding businesses and PD ambassadors. If you missed them don’t worry you can catch up after you’ve met the simply gorgeous Vicki of Hummingbird Occasions a beautiful wedding planning and styling company based in the south west of the UK.

Day Three:

Meet the gorgeous Vicki

My desire to become a wedding and events planner really became clear when I often felt elements where missing from corporate events and parties. I found myself brainstorming what I would have done differently to take the event to the next level. As a mum of two, I found the same thing at children’s birthday parties. They seemed so commercial rather than styled with a clear theme in mind. Isn’t that what makes children’s parties so fun?!

I took my passion for events and enrolled to study with the UK Academy Of Wedding And Event Planning. Then in 2016, I decided to put all my knowledge, passion and skills to use and am incredibly proud to have launched Hummingbird Occasions.

Wedding Designer & Stylist

Hello! I’m Emily.

So, it all began after getting married in 2015 and becoming absolutely mesmerised by this amazing wedding industry. I enrolled on UK Wedding Academy diploma course to learn as much as I possibly could, gain a qualification and set up my business which has developed into Emily K Weddings. What I’ve gained most out of the course is the opportunities and experience from the lovely people I’ve met along the way!

One of these opportunities has being a brand ambassador for Pamella Dunn. Her advice and encouragement has been invaluable and to have someone there to ask questions and learn from has given me the confidence to launch my website and services this year.

Introducing Pamella Dunn Events Brand Ambassador Charlotte Of Redemancy

Over the next two weeks I have the pleasure of introducing you to some wedding industry super stars of the future that I have the pleasure of mentoring, working with and supporting. Sharing my experience with them, offering advice and networking opportunities is ridiculously exciting. I am constantly motivated by their passion and enthusiasm for the business, and I’m delighted that you get to hear from them. The first in the series is Charlotte; and yes she made me blush ….

Day One Meet Charlotte:

Charlotte – Wedding Planner & Stylist

My journey started when I was 16 years old, descending the stairs into the dining room at the most beautifully organised and styled wedding reception. To say I was in awe is an understatement. Looking around the room, I was absorbing every last detail – and then I saw her… the Wedding Planner. In that very moment, I wanted to be her. I wanted to do what she did. And since that very moment my focus has never wavered. Not for a single second.

Even whilst studying for my Law Degree I still sat in the library pouring over wedding blogs and Pinterest the majority of the time, planning my wedding-world domination.

I was lucky enough (still pinching myself) to become one of Pamella Dunn’s interns and brand ambassadors just over a year ago. I have picked her brains at every opportunity, and she has generously and willingly shared what she’s learnt. I’ve accompanied her on photoshoots as a styling assistant, helped her set-up for weddings, and made some awesome connections through her. She’s taught me a lot of valuable lessons, steered me in the right direction, and has always been there with positivity in abundance.

Now, after seven years of hustle, I feel like I have finally arrived. I have my own wedding planning and styling business – Redamancy, my own clients who are a joy to work with, a portfolio of styled shoots my sixteen-year-old self would have rushed to ‘pin’, and a blog that is currently in the final of the UK Blog Awards. None of this is a fluke or luck, it’s the result of sheer hard work, the refusal to give up on my dream, and the impact of the most glamorous mentor the world has ever seen. And I’m only just getting started…

Bridal Portrait on the terrace at Dunsley Hall Country House Hotel Sandsend

Part two of this fabulous coastal fine art shoot takes us on to the terrace at Dunsley Hall Country House Hotel, along the meandering paths and across to the meadows and orchards. This wedding venue really does have it all. Its coastal location, exclusive use and boutique bedrooms are just beautiful, but it’s the food that will really blow you away. Fine dining, fine wine and an after dinner experience like no other.

A gentle sea breeze catches the luxe velvet tablecloth in this romantic orchard setting. Moments of tranquility and calm on your wedding day are to be treasured. Making a little time in your timeline is a luxury I know but so worth it.

Choosing your tablescape decor is really personal and sometimes just a pretty vintage urn spilling over with just picked eucalyptus and the dreamiest white peony is perfect.

Chalky grey place setting details add sophisticated style to your tablescape. Personal details are memorable and will charm your guests. Thoughtful elements can be small and have a big impact, this is where you can really make your day unique, reflecting your love story.

Hidden doorways and original features are perfect photography backdrops. I absolutely love this bridal image with our natural white lilac and eucalyptus bouquet. The fragrance was heavenly.

Simple styling on the stone steps adds timeless elegance to your photographs, using your bouquet and some of your decor will give continuity to your imagery.
