Featured! The Guardian Small Business Network....

I am so delighted to have been featured in Alison Coleman's Small Business Network article in February's Guardian.  Alison asked me to write about my experiences as a home-based small business owner in the Event & Wedding Planning Industry. Take a look at the full article here

2014 has already been a busy year for Do Events Limited and sister company Do Weddings.  I am in the final stages of planning for Shetal and Matthew's 2 day Wedding celebrations in April. The couple are hosting a quintessentially English Cricket Match followed by a Hindu Blessing at Teddington Cricket Club set in the beautiful surroundings of Bushy Park.  I am looking forward to working with Teddington based photographer Mat Quake, MIB Rocks and Dips Foods at the couples Wedding.

I have absolutely loved working with Teddington Athletic Football Club this season and in particular the U12 & U13 Girls Teams. Together with their team manager and Tim Syrad from the Teddington Wine Society we held a Wine & Beer Tasting Evening with Auction to raise funds for the girls forthcoming Tour to Duinrell, Holland.  The event raised over £4,000 thanks to local support and to the fantastic food supplied by Moidul's of Teddington, the U12 Girls Team sponsor.  I wish the girls a lot of fun and success on Tour this Easter and wish I was going too!

I have also been busy with my venue & supplier finding service.  I have had a great deal of fun working to some very unusual and challenging briefs, searching for the perfect venue for my party clients and brides. Thank you to all the venues I have been talking to including, Brooklands Museum, Dalston Department Store and Petersham Nursery.

I was lucky enough to sample the delicious offerings of local Chef Andrew Thorndyke this week at a client tasting - a very enjoyable perk of the job!

Do you fancy pitting your wit against our Quiz Master, then make sure to book your tickets for our next Quiz Night at The Lensbury, Teddington on Friday 25th April.
