Yvonne trained in professional wedding planning at Wedding Planners international in the Netherlands. She headed her own small company in Rotterdam called ‘The Planner: Event & Wedding planning’, before moving back to the UK to start up the Wedding Planners Guild UK which provides wedding and event planning services, and the most up to date certified wedding planning training courses across the UK. Yvonne is passionate about the wedding industry and her role as a wedding planner; Yvonne: “I’d say I was a people’s person- it makes me feel fulfilled to see a happy client following a perfect event, and I love that my career has me meeting new people almost every day. There are a lot of skills that I need to do my job, of course, organisation is the main thing, but it’s also important that I’m a strong motivator and highly creative. I definitely think that being able to listen, be patient, have a sense of humour and show empathy for others also goes a long way.”
Yvonne’s bubbly personality and calm demeanour helps people around her relax as she creates one-of-a-kind events. Yvonne works among experienced and highly talented suppliers who assist her in planning stylish, personalised and unforgettable events.
In her spare time, Yvonne enjoys spending time with my family and friends, writing, walking and reading business, design and mindfulness books and magazines for new ideas and inspiration.
