What’s your favourite part of your job?
Hearing the love stories and personalities of our couples then using this to create a truly personal and intimate wedding day.
What are you reading at the moment?
I’d love to say that I’m engrossed in a wonderful novel but sadly in this industry there just isn’t time. My head is often buried in the latest wedding and home decorator magazines.
What are you lusting after at the moment?
Restored and re-loved furnishings to add colour and personality to a wedding style.
Top three songs on your play list?
Valerie – Amy Winehouse
If I Aint Got you – Alicia Keys
Jet Plane – Angus and Julia Stone
What is your favourite moment during a wedding?
All of it, from the rushed madness of set up to seeing the look on the groom's face when he first spies his bride, the first dance and the pack down at the end of the night.
Who inspires you?
Elizabeth Messina – for her always graceful photography.
My girlfriends, who always manage to juggle motherhood, extremely demanding careers, time for their friends and most of all a wonderful attitude towards life.
What does it take to impress you?
Attention to detail, 110% effort and simple things like good manners.
What is the best piece of advice you were ever given?
Take it step by step. You don’t always have to have everything you dream of all at once. Grow your business and don’t rush!
Favourite way to spend a Sunday?
With my family, in the sunshine, enjoying great food, music and wine.
Black Tie or Casual?
There is always a place for both!
Your suggestion for a new name for ‘Hens party’
Hats and Hens – a day filled with French champagne, English tarts and Millinery
Your favourite hostess gift to give?
Hand baked goods to have with tea when they arrive home from the event
What’s the best gift you have ever received?
The ongoing friendships I have with past clients.
Three words that describe you best.
Observant, thorough, nurturing
Thanks so much for sharing with us about yourself Carly. It was lovely to get to know you more!
