What is your background?
My background is in Renewable Energy events, where as PA to David Still CBE, I organised and attended exhibitions and high profile events as well as managing the National Renewable Energy Centre’s conference centre prior to that.
Why did you take a franchise with Simply Bows?
I worked with Simply Bows and Chair Covers on a part time basis dressing weddings and events in my spare time. When the opportunity came up to become a franchisee I jumped at the chance of becoming part of this excellent team and well-known brand.
Why do you love working for yourself?
The main reason I love working for myself is it gives me the flexibility to spend time with my 2 year old daughter Halle.
Why do you love being a Simply Bows franchisee?
Being part of someone’s wedding is very special and helping them create the look they want for their day is very rewarding. It’s great to walk away from a venue knowing you have made such a difference.
Which "look" that you can create is your favourite and why?
I love using the ruffles and chair veils, they create something totally different and unique.
If you could dress a celebrity wedding - whose would you choose and why?
Jared Leto – he’s my dream man!
Any really memorable weddings that you have dressed?
The first wedding I dressed in the ivory ruffles because they looked so lovely!
How would your friends describe you in three words?
Thoughtful, Funny, Caring – From the horses mouths, honestly I asked them! ;)
Are you married? How did you dress your own wedding?
I am married. My husband Lee and I were married at Matfen Hall on 22nd August 2009. We had a burnt orange and chocolate brown colour scheme with Orange organza bows.
Why choose SImply Bows over another linen provider?
Our quality speaks for itself and our customer service is second to none, regardless as to the area you are in. Our business is multi award winning, and I bet there aren’t many others that can say that.
