I have over 16 years’ experience in the travel industry and I have loved every minute of it! I have a real passion for what I do and having worked in the industry such a long time am very lucky to have visited so many amazing places. Working as a Travel Counsellor I am able to use all my experience and knowledge to help you plan your perfect wedding – who wouldn’t love doing that every day!
Working with our amazing dedicated wedding team, I work on a number of weddings abroad each year. From weddings in Cyprus, Aruba and even a very bespoke tailor made one in Dubai this year, each one is very different but all perfect for each bride and groom. I also booked a little trip out to Cyprus to plan my own wedding this summer and whilst there took the opportunity to view a range of other hotels and venues for my clients too. There are so many options and its great to see them first hand, after all, every couple has their own individual plans to make their day perfect.
I have to say this was the best trip ever and I’m excited to be going back in June for my own, very bespoke tailored wedding at Aphrodite hills resort!! We have everything booked from private villas, a beautiful chapel, golf course for the men, fab entertainment and florist to make it all look amazing and our very own secret garden for our reception!!!
Together with our Weddings team we really can make every wedding bespoke. The most recent one I have planned was in Dubai. My lovely bride knew exactly what she wanted and we planned it to perfection, we even arranged for the chef at the hotel to make her dream wedding cake from a picture we sent him. Everything was arranged down to fairy lights, lanterns and candles and I’m pleased to say my bride and groom couldn’t be happier. Here a short quote from the happy couple:
“Katie and the team worked tirelessly on our wedding from start to finish and we were completely blown away by how everything came together and our dream wedding became a reality. Katie organised everything from the wedding venue, celebrant, legal & cultural considerations, suppliers, honeymoon, flights and accommodation for us and all our guests and made us feel relaxed and stress free throughout the whole experience. We can’t thank them enough for making us and our guests experience an amazing week in Dubai and made some cherished life-long memories.”
Many couples also worry about their guests, how they will get there and their budgets. Again we can take care of all of this. Once my bride and groom are sorted I always send them a pack of my business cards with all of my contact details on so they can easily pass these on to all of their guests. This way each person, couple or family attending the wedding can call me individually and we can also tailor their trip to their specific needs, date and budget. At this stage I already have all the details of the wedding, timings, dates and location so I can ensure they book the best trip for themselves and again take the pressure and worry off the bride and groom, ultimately making everything as easy and stress free as possible for them and their guests.
Weddings abroad are exciting, whether I’m planning my own or one for my lovely couples, I enjoy every minute and make sure it’s perfect for my new Mr and Mrs!
