Hello, I'm Chloe and I'm the Wedding and Event Planner behind Blush & Blossom.My ventures into the Wedding & Event industry started from an early age, where I began to help out in the family wedding business. I then furthered my knowledge and skill set by completing an Advanced Diploma in Wedding and Event Planning and Design, whilst managing and running hundreds of weddings across the North of England, with a passion and an undying love for Weddings. Soon after, Blush & Blossom was born.
About Blush & Blossom
Cherry blossom, or "Sakura" in Japan, is a symbolic flower in Spring. It represents the time of optimism and renewal. Between the end of March and early April in Japan, families gather under flowering cherry blossom trees in a long-standing tradition called Hanami. The tradition of cherry blossom festivals are a time to regain perspective, and to make a promise not to take the good things in life for granted. The flowers represent transformation, celebration and the growth into something beautiful.
As a brand, that's what Blush & Blossom represents. We transform your wedding or event from an idea into a beautiful, blossoming reality, whilst holding your traditions and values close to our hearts. We work with you and use your inspirations, personal stories and exciting ideas to create the absolute very best wedding or event, designed specifically for you.
As a result of working in the industry for over 7 years, I've built excellent relationships and partnerships with the best suppliers in the North East. Dealing with clients from all backgrounds, from potential brides and their families from UK and beyond, to owners of prestigious venues and event planners in other countries, I adapt my style and approach to suit each client in order to design your dream event, ensuring your vision comes to life. You dream it, we plan it.
