Yvonne trained in Professional Wedding Planning at Wedding Planners International in the Netherlands. She headed her own small company in Rotterdam called ‘The Planner: Event & Wedding Planning’ and was also a regional manager of the Rotterdam area for Wedding Planners International, before moving back to the UK to start up the Wedding Planners Guild UK and the Wedding Industry Network which provides the most up to date wedding planning services and training across the UK. Yvonne is passionate about the wedding industry and her role as a Wedding Planner; Yvonne: “ I’d definitely say I was a people’s person- it makes me feel fulfilled to see a happy couple following a perfect wedding, and I love that my career has me meeting new people almost every day. There are a lot of skills that I need to do my job, of course, organisation is the main thing, but it’s also important that I’m a strong motivator and highly creative. I definitely think that being able to listen, be patient, have a sense of humour and show empathy for others also goes a long way.”
‘Yvonne is a great organiser with attention to detail, very punctual and above all a very nice person to work with.’
Fred van Eldik, Utrecht, The Netherlands
‘Yvonne is a lovely and honest person establishing always good relationships with colleagues, customers and vendors. She has multi-task skills and particularly an organizational talent and problem solving skills.’
