FEATURED SUPPLIER | ETC EVENTS

Meet our very first featured supplier, Debbie! Debbie is a ninja wedding & events planner and mom of two boys. Her attention to detail is perfection and she absolutely loves what she does! A Wedding Planner is the way to go, and Debbie tells us why:

How did you get into Wedding Planning? 
I was one of the event managers at the 1995 Rugby World Cup and a very close friend of mine living in the UK asked me to help her plan her wedding from overseas.  They arrived a week before the wedding and everything was planned and arranged.  She felt like a guest at her own wedding which is how it should be.  That was 15 years ago.

What is the best part about what you do? 
It’s very simple, making girls dream weddings a reality!  I honestly love my job and all my brides have a very special place in my heart.

What is your number 1 must have for a Wedding day? 
Well of course I have to say a Wedding Planner. Most people think that this is only for the very large and or elaborate weddings but a Wedding Planner takes all the stress out of the major decisions and guides the couple with her years of experience, she also ensure that the couples wedding day is planned and run to their plan.

Why do you love working with Brides? 
It is their BIG DAY and everything is so new and exciting, I love being able to impart my years of experience to help them have their perfect day but without breaking the bank.  Every bride is different just as every wedding is different which makes my job very challenging but rewarding in many different ways and so not a “job”!

Any advice for future brides? 
Shop around, ask questions and enjoy every moment of planning.  Or just give me a call and I can ensure that all your dreams come true!

About The Author

Angie VDH

Ang started her photography journey in 2012 when she was handed a camera to take some social snaps at a function and was hooked from then! Photography was something that had been in her life from a young age, with her great aunt being a member of the PSSA. Ang spent a few months with her aunt where she developed her skills and practiced photography as a hobby. After gaining some confidence she decided that this was definitely a path she wanted to take as a career and started investing in her camera gear and short courses whenever she could.

In 2014 she took a leap of faith and photographed her first wedding and has never looked back since. Her photography business has slowly started to gain momentum and everything she does, she does with love.
