Learn a little more about Lauren:
1. What is your favourite style/theme of Wedding to plan?
I absolutely LOVE planning fresh, bright and modern weddings…you could say I am a teensy tiny bit partial to weddings with SPARKLE! When my clients let me run with their vision and use my creativity (and connections) to design their dream wedding – that’s the most fun wedding to plan!
2. What inspired you to become a Wedding Planner?
I’ve been planning surprise parties for friends and family members since I was a young teenager. Being the “Social Director” of the group was always something that came naturally to me, so it was an obvious career choice. I am completely obsessed with LOVE and all things Weddings! The connections that you make with couples, their families, and their wedding day is incomparable to other events. Seeing their reactions when I’ve turned their dream into a reality is most rewarding feeling in the world.
3. Where is the most exotic place you’ve ever vacationed?
I have been lucky to visit so many amazing places! I loved the landscapes and cultures of Hawaii, but I think my heart belongs to my honeymoon destination: an Island off the coast of Spain! Also, those that know me very well know that I have to mention my second home: Cheshire, England – not necessarily the most “exotic” place in the world but it’s certainly my favourite!
4. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I have the most amazing family a girl could wish for, so spending time with my beautiful daughter and my hubby are always top of my list! We spend a considerable amount of time travelling too! My favourite vacations include the ones we take with or to see our amazing friends!
5. What is your favourite Starbucks drink?
I am a seasonal Latte lover – whatever seasonal drink is out is my favourite! A Pumpkin Spice or Egg Nog Latte will surely bring a smile to my face….as long as it’s Non-Fat of course!
