Designing dream days
I'm the founder and owner of my business and the creative power behind my brand. As a fun-loving female, I love life and all that it brings.
I laugh with people retelling my story how I was born in Hampton Court – it gets better – in their former stables!
I'm part english, part welsh, a former ballroom and latin dancer and still love to hit the dance floor, but sadly my husband likes to stand at the bar! I love to sing along when driving, despite being tone deaf! Im told I have a wicked sense of humour. Im competitive – my rugby playing daughter cringes when Im shouting advice from the side lines! I'm an old soul (well not that old!) with romantic creative ideas with roll up sleeves ethos & a positive attitude! My favourite drinks are coffee (love my coffee machine) and red wine! Family time is important to me - married to John for over 30 years, 3 grown up daughters and 3 grandchildren, oh and our Saint Bernard dogs! Live in Dunster having moved to West Country in 2003 from Sussex.
I've had an eclectic previous working life but the common thread has always been interacting with people! From running my own hospitality and entertainment ventures with my husband, as well as being involved in my family catering business. With a career in the Police, I found my passion for logistics and interacting with diverse communities. I've worked on projects with the Home Office, Probation, Care & Learning Disability Industry, Victim and Offender Services, as well as a Safeguarding Lead and being key note speaker at corporate conferences in front of over thousand. Ive been trained by the BBC in pubic speaking and presenting, and have been interviewed on tv and radio, so I know how to engage with audiences. I returned to Exeter University and gained BA (Hons) degree enjoying researching and also won the University's award for outstanding achievement during my 3 years there. I love self development, and have Celebrancy, Wedding Planning, Creative Writing formal training under my belt to name a few. Im very proud of the awards Ive won.

Meet Lizzie, she is often supporting me to chaperone dogs at their owners wedding ceremonies as ring bearers or furry wedding guests, pet-sitting, walking and having fun with lots of walks and cuddles (if wanted!)
Lizzie is one of our team on the dog side, has two rescue dogs of her own along with her finance Jordan (who also is part of the team).
Lizzie is qualified in animal care and first aid. Has worked for the RSPCA and The National Animal Welfare Trust as lead kennel hand, so she comes with great qualities!
