Ever wondered about making a career in party-planning? There are so many events out there these days and, of course, we love a good wedding! Claire, the Venue Queen, has it all figured out and has certainly crafted a dream job! How many of us have watched J-Lo in The Wedding Planner and known exactly what we want do when we grow up? What’s more, Claire is her own boss – which definitely rings with some serious Girl Power! We had a chat to get to know the ins and outs of organising an event from a professional in her field!
As an event planner, the Venue Queen knows how to keep her cool. Because she works for herself and her client base, there is a lot riding on the perfect delivery of each event! Claire tells us that because of this, she has sky-high standards and at Guides for Brides we love the pursuit of perfectionism!
The Venue Queen has a grand total of 25 years experience in events, with a penchant for venues and getting the job done! From this, Claire emphasises the importance of her wealth of contacts (and knowledge!) in the industry. Building good relationships is at the top of any planners list and Claire uses a circle of trusted, skilled professionals around her to meet particularly exacting standards!
Claire runs us through the logistics of holding her Venue Queen title: A day in the life involves venue hunting, meetings, brainstorming, sugaring, mingling and participating in charity events! The Venue Queen is not just about finding your venue (free of charge!) though, Claire is also an expert in event planning and management, offering a bespoke service to her clients.
The Venue Queen listens to the needs of her particular client, taking into account unique sets of objectives and, of course, budget! By working out the logistics, Claire works hard on the delivery of the event, including sourcing those with the expertise to work on different parts of each project.
Money, money, money
The Venue Queen is fantastic with a budget – keeping the entire process transparent and cost-effective! We love how straight talking Claire is and, most of all, how passionate she is about her work! She firmly believes that everything, and anything is achievable with the right people in place at the right time, keeping stock of where every penny is being spent.
