Last week I had the pleasure of attending a WPIC seminar with Jane Dayus-Hinch, the UK wedding planner and host of TV show, Wedding SOS. I’ve seen the show on more than a few occasions and, up until this week, it has just been another form of entertainment.
But after hearing from Jane herself about her background and crazy wedding adventures, I have a new found respect for her and what she does. By no means is she just a show personality; she really is as witty, professional and endearing as she seems on TV. She is a masterful storyteller and you can tell that she is an even more masterful wedding coordinator. Most importantly, you could tell that she loves what she does.
She inspired me that evening with her passion for weddings and strive for excellence. I also learned a handful of her trade secrets and I look forward to putting them into action this year. I can only hope that I will one day be able to get a small taste of her successes!
The evening itself was also quite well put-together. The Hilton Garden Inn at the Airport was modern and chic, lending a great backdrop to the seminar. In our room, each table was tastefully decorated with it’s own theme, matching floral centerpieces and delicious cake pops. We even had a program for the evening, DJ and photographer. We definitely learned in style! Hats off to the ladies who put it together.
