Weddings Won’t Go Away. (We're just on a break!)

Updated: Oct 31, 2020

We were on a break!’

It certainly feels like we are ‘on a break’ right now; but that is ALL it is. We will get back to normal, weddings will continue to take place and our industry will thrive again. We are not winding down to a close, it’s just we can’t quite see the end of this yet, and with that comes worry.

It’s hardly been a break or rest period as there’s been weddings to undo and reappraise - not something we are in the business of doing to this extent. We all know we will come out of it eventually and we are doing our best to get through it.

I sincerely hope you can all take some time out to share a much-needed laugh - needed to help sustain us on a busy wedding day, and now, more than ever.

With thanks to @eyeimagine for this lovely memory of past times that will return.
Lovely times that will return!

Love this throwback to behind the scenes, a sustaining coffee break moment for Samantha and me at a wedding @goodwood_estate in 2007. No doubt, sharing a laugh with Head Butler David and his team as the evening is winding down to a close.

About Siobhan Craven-Robins

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. In 2005 she launched her DVD, ‘From This Day Forward’, a guide to planning the perfect wedding.

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. She has provided commentary for many of the Royal weddings, penned forewords

for industry books and appeared countless times on National and International tv and radio

providing expert commentary on a range of wedding related news items.

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 is now regarded as a benchmark for professionalism within the UK industry.

Siobhan now spends some of her time lecturing for The Event School London, hosting

various Masterclasses and her 5-day Certificate in Wedding Planning.

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. 

"Siobhàn's classes personally were fantastic, her passion for her line of work really reflected in all her teachings. Delivery of the programme was wonderful"
