PAST

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.

Behind the scenes

 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.

 PRESENT

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.

Day 10:

Hey ..

Welcome to Farm. I’m Sarah. Here’s a little bit of information about me & how Farm has evolved.

Once upon a time, I’m not going to think exactly how long ago now, I grew up in a beautiful Georgian house which my parents ran as a luxury wedding venue. As a family we lived and breathed and revolved around the magical goings on in that house, in my memories I recall it as though living amidst a flurry of hazy happiness and floating organza. Something about it must have stayed with me.

Then I traveled, lived and worked as life requires one to do. I lived in London, Spain, Canada & France. I graduated in a subject entirely at odds with design, but spurred on by my first little walk up flat renovation I went on to renovate, build and design several houses. In 2005, whilst living in Canada, I – along with a very dear friend –  set up an interior styling company & by 2010 we had regularly featured in newspaper, magazines & had our own little spot on Saturday morning television. In 2010 I moved to France and my journey in styling and design continued.

Then, in 2013, I settled back in my beloved Yorkshire. Ready for a fresh direction.

Getting her creative on

Inspired by my childhood, driven by my experience in design & styling, motivated by my brief stint working with a super talented florist & an equally supportive new venue I turned Farm on a new path into events and wedding styling. I submerged myself in several intensive courses – notable of which was Pamella Dunn’s business workshop an Introduction To My Wedding Business Course for it’s endless mentorship, networks and invaluable advice. And I love it. I love the attention to detail, the endless creative possibilities, the happiness, the journeys and the stories.  Everything I have learnt, my years of experience in styling, my professionalism, my passion, my flair, my creativity, my imagination, I now pour into your day.

Introducing Pamella Dunn Brand Ambassador Stacey of Rose Gold Events

Welcome to Rose Gold Events, a shiny new Yorkshire based Wedding Stylist & Planner.

New website,holding page,exciting new venture,
Rose Gold Events are working behind the scenes to bring you a fabulous website

We all know that every wedding is unique, this is the heartbeat of the wedding industry that I am so excited to be part of.

So how did I get here?

Launching my own wedding styling & planning business has been a ‘one day’ dream of mine for quite some time. My qualification background began in Art & Design, followed by a degree in Marketing & Events which landed me a great job in the corporate world. FYI: the corporate world and a longing to be creative do not mix well. So… a diploma in Wedding Planning Styling & Design, 2016 interning for two fabulous wedding planners Pamella Dunn Weddings & Rosy Apple Events, and my own destination Lake Como wedding & UK after party LATER…. I am now 100% ready to launch and define Rose Gold Events as a credible go to wedding stylist & planner presenting flawless attention to detail.

 wedding styling,wedding stylist,behid the scenes wedding styling,

Although I love to keep up to date with the latest wedding trends, I find UK bridal couples still prefer a more bespoke experience. At Rose Gold Events we embrace being unique, being true to yourself and having your own style. I hope to inspire, excite and guide my bridal couples by working together picking out those little moments with attention to detail,  bringing an idea to life, passionately as if it were my own!

My event styling and planning services are for the discerning couple wanting to celebrate their wedding in a timeless, elegant and deeply personal style. I can also offer my personal experience and gained expertise in planning a destination wedding from concept to completion. I have gained a wonderful ongoing relationship with many suppliers in Northern Italy, specifically the Italian Lakes where a boot shape section of my heart belongs.

Day Eight

Hi, I’m Lucy, founder of Lucy Rotchell Wedding Design.

With a dad in the industry, a passion for weddings, florals and all things vintage and many years experience as a PA, becoming a wedding planner always felt like a natural progression, not to mention there isn’t another career comes to mind that I could honestly say I would be as enthusiastic about and throw everything into.

I qualified as an Accredited Wedding & Events Planner with the UK Academy of Wedding & Event Planning in July 2016 and very shortly afterward Lucy Rotchell Wedding Design was born!

My aim is to create a relaxed and informal working environment where clients can come and feel totally at ease and completely without pressure, my passion is vintage/rustic and I want the eclectic and personal feel it gives to shine through in my work. So whether its a few ideas to get you started on your magical wedding planning journey or its full coverage that you’re looking for I would love to hear from you. I’m a Yorkshire girl so any excuse for a cuppa and a bit of Victoria sponge!

Since qualifying I have also been fortunate enough to gain amazing experience as a Brand Ambassador for award winning wedding & events planner, Pamella Dunn. The opportunities and knowledge this has afforded me have been beyond anything I could have imagined.

The free reign of a wedding in our day and age is definitely my driving force for why I love what I do so much. Anything goes! Your wedding can be as crazy, as unique, as YOU as it wants to be and I believe helping someone create their vision and seeing it all come to life is something just a little bit special.

I would love you to follow or journey on Instagram

Introducing Pamella Dunn Brand Ambassador Ellie Of Ellie Kime Weddings

Day Seven:

Hiya! I’m Ellie, from Ellie Kime. As you may have guessed, my wedding business is, at the heart of it all, me. My unbridled eagerness, my passion for making dreams come true, my magpie tendencies for anything remotely shiny, and my penchant for making conversation and connections with the industry’s best…all of these culminate in my wedding planning. Alongside a (terribly chosen) philosophy degree in the Smoke, I’ve been gaining experience in the industry for years: working as an events coordinator, interning under the wonderful Pamella Dunn, working for the most incredible wedding blog and network And So To Wed, and assisting with the dreamy A Most Curious Wedding Fair.

Meet the gorgeous Ellie Kime

I’m also one of the recommended wedding planners at the beautiful Deighton Lodge, just outside York. This inimitable experience, coupled with my trademark enthusiasm and creative flair, means I want to take the wedding world by storm. In fact, positive mental attitude: I’m going to take the wedding world by storm.

Whether you’re a bride looking for someone who you can be confident in entrusting with organisation and styling of your big day, or as an industry member looking for someone who is a perfect fit for your next vision, I’m your gal. It’s all about making a connection, whether it’s with your perfect idea of how your entire day should run start to finish, how your venue will match your Pinterest board, or how to find the suppliers who will be as excited about your day as you are (and I am!). I live, breathe and dream weddings and happiness, and am regularly on the hunt for more adjectives because there’s only so many times you can describe something as gorgeous. Even though most things in the wedding world are gorgeous. We’re lucky like that!

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.
