Happy New Year !!  Here’s to a great 2016 and our 16th year in business.

Crown Weddings and Events are grateful to all the wonderful couples who put their faith in us in and had us plan their weddings in 2015. It was an incredible year filled with many many heart warming moments and fabulous details and designs, I am deeply grateful to have a job that I love and to have taken care of you all.

In 2015 we were lucky enough to have another front cover on Ceremony Magazine and were featured in many on line blogs including Colin Cowie, Carats and Cake, Style me Pretty, and Grace Ormonde. We also had a wedding featured in the recent Decor edition of South Asian Bridal Magazine. Thank you to all of them for featuring our work.

At the end of the day our success is all about you, our couples who trust Crown Weddings and Events to help you plan one of the most important and special days of your lives.

Getting to know me a little 

I’m British !!
I was born in Greenwich,London and grew up in the North of England.I showed early signs of entertaining by making lots of tea (not unusual in the UK) and making custom designed apple pies for my neighbors. At College I studied Hotel, Catering and Institutional Management and then went on to work in various fabulous Five Star hotels in London for many years before being transferred to California with Le Meridien Hotels.

I LOVE to travel:

Highlights over the past few years include Bali, Italy, Thailand and France.

In 2015 I enjoyed  a 12 day  Cruise through the Baltics – Sweden, Denmark and Finland into Russia -I  highly recommend it 🙂


1. I am an avid Ice Hockey fan and share season tickets for the Anaheim Ducks.

2. I used to compete in Irish Dancing competitions when I was young with my friend Maureen.

3 Three of my treasured possessions: A sapphire ring from my mother, my engagement ring, family photos.

4. I have 2 boys Aaron (17)and Tom (13) who along with my husband are the loves of my life.

My Philosophy :
I love what I do and I believe every day we have a choice to make a difference in the world and change up the energy around us for the greater good. Even if its just a kind smile to a stranger, calling a friend to tell them how much they are loved or dancing around the kitchen. – Make a choice to be HAPPY !

The same applies to planning a wedding, stay happy, stay positive, stay connected , hire me  🙂 and all will be well !
