Welcome Back Siobhan

About Siobhan's Experience
The bio below captures just some of Siobhan’s experience and expertise:
“Back in 1995, Siobhan recognised a gap in the market for designated co-ordinators to help couples through the wedding planning process saving them time, money and disappointment. Siobhan is acknowledged in the industry as the UK’s first Wedding Planner.
Siobhan is now established as one of the UK’s leading wedding co-ordinators. Her beautiful weddings have featured in Hello, OK! and many bridal magazines in various countries around the world. Her famous clients include Joan Collins, Barbara Windsor, Greg Kinnear, Sacha Mascolo-Tarbuck, Des O’Connor and Ronni Ancona.
She was GMTV’s resident wedding expert and featured on the show for the Interactive wedding (2002-2006) where she designed various aspects of a wedding for the viewers to vote on.
Siobhan writes for various wedding magazines and is frequently requested as a speaker at business seminars and wedding shows. She is also frequently hired as a consultant for wedding related TV and radio shows, new venues and other suppliers within the wedding industry.
In 2005 she launched her DVD, ‘From This Day Forward’, a guide to planning the perfect wedding.
In 2013, with two of her industry colleagues, she founded National Association of Wedding Professionals; an association promoting professionalism and integrity within the UK Wedding Industry. The association has gone from strength to strength, boasting a high calibre membership and starting to be regarded as a benchmark for professionalism within the UK industry.
Recently Siobhan was invited to offer her expert views on Pippa Middleton's wedding in a BBC News interview. This year, Siobhan has featured on Radio 5live's Drivetime show discussing a wedding related news topic and Siobhan was interviewed for her wedding planning expertise for Rocks and Frocks.
Siobhan now spends some of her time guest lecturing to Event Course/Degree students at various colleges and universities in London.
Siobhan is renowned for her imaginative flair; no two weddings are ever the same. Her goal is to achieve a wedding that is truly representative of the couple involved. A wedding that is individual to them - and one that guests enjoy and appreciate.”
