Today I have a really fab Wedding Wonder of the Week: Juicy Occasions. I've known Lucy for a while now, we 'met' through the wonders of social media. And today is their 1st birthday! So here's my present to you Lucy - a little blog post all about the amazing Juicy Occasions......
- Tell me a bit about yourself and your company.
My name is Lucy, I am an Events Management graduate who decided to take the plunge and start her own company. My company is called Juicy Occasions (after my nickname Juicy Lucy) and we are wedding and event specialists based in Berkshire.
- Are you married? If not: do you have a secret wedding wish list?
I am not married, however I do have a boyfriend who I have been with for a long time. I would love a summer festival themed wedding – so outdoor tent, camping, wellies etc. I would love a huge circus tent for the reception, with candy floss, dodgems and fair rides etc.......I suppose the other thing on my list would be the budget to match this!
- What attracted you to working in the wedding industry?
I love working on events from start to finish, and being with the customer on the day. I have worked all types of events but Weddings are the most fun, most rewarding and I get a bigger sense of achievement when everything goes well!
- What is your favourite part of working with bride & grooms (to-be)?
Capturing their ideas on paper and turning them into reality!
- What is your most favourite wedding theme at the moment?
It has got to be Autumn themed. I don't know why but I am really liking the rustic orange and burnt red look at the moment. I think it is because I was watching an old episode of Glee where a couple got married and I just really loved the theme.
- Top wedding tip?
Dont mention the word Wedding unless you have to! Suppliers and venues can hike up the price just because they know its a wedding.
- What do you think the next big wedding trends might be?
Well currently its vintage......so I think the next one could be Carnival?!
- Where can we find your fabulous company?
- What are your plans for the future?
I am hoping to expand and branch out into a new area of the wedding and events business with my Aunty. At the moment we are having rennovation works for this so I cannot let the cat out of the bag just yet!
Thank you so much to Lucy for sharing all of this with us. I hope you're having a great 1st Birthday!
Love Kate x
