Setting the Scene is all about creating a warm elegant and inviting atmosphere to enhance every kind of occasion.

      I believe the planning process should

be fun & exciting. After all we are planning celebrations. A wedding is such an event

and every bride wants it to be perfect.


That’s really what it’s all about. Creating an event that guests will remember for years to come. I can't imagine doing anything other

than planning and designing weddings.

I just love what I do.
