How I got into weddings: I was a floral designer for many years, so I have long had a love for weddings. I began my business in sewing and embroidery as a result of sewing for my children. However, I still keep involved with floral design working freelance with a local wedding floral designer. So it was an easy transition to go back to my love of weddings with Monde Design, and weddings are now my main focus (although I do still love sewing for my children, and costuming for local dance studios).
What is your favourite part of a wedding day? When the bride and groom see each other for the first time.
Best piece of advice you’d give to brides and grooms? Remember to breathe, and take it all in. It will be over so fast, try to be in the moment. One of my favorite things I have seen couples do in all my years of working weddings, is when they get a small side ballroom, or dining room, all to themselves and enjoy their wedding dinner and some time alone before going to the reception. It is a great way to slow down and to enjoy each other and the first moments of being husband and wife.
