My Why

Well I’m Jodie, Mum to 4 children, wife to my best friend of 17 years.

Lover of trying something new, making memories, motorbikes, tattoos, piercings and rainbows.

With my notepad nearby full of my all-important lists, I never follow the crowd. I love to be different.

I am organised, kind, caring, loyal and trustworthy and I absolutely adore weddings.

When I’m not planning, obsessing or talking about weddings, you’ll find me on an adventure with my family or on a motorbike ride.

I worked in the graphic design and printing industry for 6 years designing estate agent brochures which lead me on to wedding and birthday stationery.

After planning my own wedding in 2009, I knew this was something I was born to do; the organising and scheduling came so naturally to me and was such a fun process and a sense of achievement when the day all came together.

We all have that ping moment where you whole outlook on life changes forever.

Well mine happened in December 2012, when my two daughters were diagnosed with a shortened life expectancy syndrome. From that moment on we made memories, we lived one day at a time. WE said yes to things even if it scared the crap out of us!

We said now, not maybe or next year!

So in 2015, I passed my Event and Wedding Planning course with QC Career School, I then went on to train with The UK Wedding Alliance of Wedding Planners (UKAWP) and am now an associate member. 

I do a lot of charity work throughout the year, raising thousands of pounds for Amy & Friends who support children like ours. I have jumped out of a plane, climbed Mount Snowdon, walked across fire, completed Tough Mudder and even shaved all my hair off… to name a few.
