What do you do?
Founder of White Rabbit Projects, a boutique agency specialising in event production, project management and wedding planning.
What is your number one tip for brides planning their wedding?
Make it unique, ditch the rulebook and remember to have fun!
What’s the most common mistake people make when planning a wedding?
Excluding your other half! Remember it’s his day as much as yours so it’s important to involve him in the planning process.
What wedding websites and blogs do you visit regularly?
For planning advice, The Knot and Polkadot Bride are great. When it comes to styling and production, we source ideas from famous photographers, fashion designers and interior stylists rather than the traditional wedding blogs. Check out photographer, Tim Walker – his photos are incredible!
Tell us about White Rabbit Projects?
It was born out of a love for organising events. I love how every day is different; one day I’m developing an event concept to launch a new product and then the next I’m uncovering a hot new wedding venue – what’s not to love about that?
What are your key rules to being the perfect wedding guest?
Respect the dress code. Don’t wear white, turn up on time and don’t drink too much! Remember to be open and friendly to those guests who arrive alone, and to the couple on your table who no one knows.
There’s always a lot of confusion around dress codes. Advice?
- Smart casual: Ladies opt for something a little less structured and relaxed (but not too relaxed!). Think a maxi-dress or a blouse and skirt. Boys can choose a nice pair of pants and a shirt.
- Cocktail: A dark suit and a tie for the boys; women can go for a shorter dress. (This is where the Little Black Dress comes in handy.)
- Black tie: A tuxedo or dinner suit for gentlemen and an Oscars-inspired gown for the ladies.
