Today’s wedding planner interview is with London based planner Bernadette of Dream Occasions! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I’m Bernadette and I launched Dream Occasions in 2003 as a boutique wedding planning business. Prior to this I spent 10 years working for TV companies as an executive assistant, much of my role was organising people, events and systems so the leap to wedding planning was in fact a small one.

I can offer clients honesty, professionalism and experience gained through my ten years (and counting) years in business. I am also one of two directors of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners which exists to inject and maintain professionalism in an otherwise unregulated industry, so you can be certain you are in safe hands.

I aim to offer clients the best value for their budget and recommend only our approved professional vendors. Clients are in essence hiring Dream Occasions for our experience and knowledge, so whether giving advice on design or solving family disagreements, we are there, always by their side.
