What do you love most about your job?

The thing I love most about my job? It's different for each event.

With celebrations, whether it be a 1st birthday party or 50th wedding anniversary – I love taking the pressure off yourselves so they can actually enjoy the event and celebrate in style.

With charity fundraisers, I love that sense of achievement knowing that the hard work and long hours will make a difference to someone in need when you hand over that cheque, knowing even £1,000 would make all the difference.

With weddings, it's the look on the couples face when they see their dream wedding become reality. The smiles on their faces during their first dance or when they cut the cake - their joy makes it all worthwhile.

What inspired you to start your own business?

In 2010 I started working on a charity golf day for the corporate company I was working with - we raised just short of £120,000. When we went to hand over the cheque to the charity involved it was humbling to see the difference that that money made. It was then that I decided I wanted to do more for charity so I started working with organisations and individuals charity golf days and gala dinners. In 2016 the amount raised for charity from events I managed was £2.2million. From there it has developed into including weddings and celebrations and I love every part of it!

Why should our clients choose you?

I believe in the personal approach - my clients should always feel like they are my number one and I will do everything to ensure that. I work hard not because I have to but because I want to. I have drive and determination to make any event I work on successful. My attention to detail is second to none and above all I love what I do so I will give it my everything.

Event & Party Planners FAQs

Expand all

Most event planners charge their clients anywhere from 10-20 percent of the total cost of the event, with 15 percent being the average.

Your professional event planner will be able to advise you on the full range of options available, helping you to choose the best one for your needs. Use Bark to find trusted event planners near you and request quotes for free!

Some of the common services your event planner can help with include:

  • Conducting research

  • Creating an event design

  • Finding a suitable venue

  • Arranging for food, decorations, and entertainment

  • Planning transportation to and from the event

  • Sending invitations to attendees

  • Arranging accommodation for attendees

  • Coordinating the activities of event staff

  • Supervision at the site

  • Conducting evaluations of the event

Following these steps will ensure that you find the right Event Planner for you:

  • Objective - Before you start your search, you need to work out the event's objective, the budget you are working with, and your reason for hiring externally. You want to be in a position to communicate the broad outline of the event and its most important goals. You will also want to decide on the budget for your event planner and what they will be expected to do. A party planner can select the venue, recommend food and beverage options, source speakers and entertainment, be on-site on the day and create the invitations.

  • Find your event planner - You want to hire someone who has expertise in creating your type of event. Word of mouth is one way to find an event planner but it's not always the most effective approach. Look out for a company with experience and a strong reputation and do your online research by reading company reviews on Bark.

  • Interview applicants - Most event planners will be eager to hear about your event. Give them brief details at first and focus on their expertise in the initial round of interviews. Reduce your list of candidates to the three strongest applicants. You should then ask each finalist about their business, their experience with past events, and how they plan for contingencies.

  • Decision time - Once you have hired a company, the event planner should be able to share a detailed plan for the event with you.

  • Budget - Many people who organise an event for the first time want a champagne event on a beer budget. You need to work together to come up with a realistic budget. Plus, do not forget to find out about the fees that will be charged by the event planner and how they will be incorporated into the budget.

  • Follow up - Make sure you stay on top of the event planning and do not force the event management expert to make major decisions without your input.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local event planners listed will give you a reliable and professional service.

There is no formal training required to be an event planner, although they usually have a degree or certificate from a university in event planning or management.

Before you choose an event planner, it's always worth checking out their customer reviews on their website and Bark profile. This ensures that they are trustworthy and reliable.

Absolutely! Whether it's finding the best DJ or getting your catering sorted, your event and party planner will be able to organise pretty much every aspect of the event online. You can even find the perfect venue through interactive virtual venue tours - pretty neat stuff!
