Hey, I'm Karen!

I inspire brides to plan weddings that look more like theirs and less like their parents' because let's face it; as a generation of creatives, hackers and founders, we do nothing the way they did! 

My wedding journey started in 2010 where I became the event manager at a wedding venue, prior to my first day on the job I had only ever attended one wedding before! I instantly fell in love, and quickly moved on to become a wedding planner.

After a number of seasons working with brides I realised I was often asked the same questions about planning a wedding, which is when I decided to become a wedding coach, helping brides internationally with their wedding plans.

I'm passionate about helping brides plan weddings that are the perfect reflection of them and their partner, not the perfect reflection of the last five weddings they went to!
