I started off in events in 2013 when I first moved to Scotland and quickly signed myself up for an events apprenticeship. Here, my love of all things events started and I soon moved onto a job with a hotel in East Lothian as an Event Coordinator.

Since then I've worked with a range of venues, suppliers, and people around Scotland planning everything from small intimate events to weekend wedding extravaganzas. With this experience, and love for all things weddings, I created Pink Wellie.

Originally from Cambridge, I now live in the Scottish Borders with my husband Jack and two boys Arthur and Bryn. I've always loved planning and organising weddings, and always seem to be able to find a reason to make a spreadsheet or to help friends and family plan a special occasion. When I'm not planning, all my free time is currently being taken up renovating a Victorian flat we bought at the end of 2023 which is in serious need of TLC and probably better DIYers but hey we're committed now!

Pink Wellie, a wedding planning business, was created to bring my

background and know-how to those who need an experienced hand planning those once in a lifetime events. With fun, love, and personalisation at its core.

Hello! I'm Thea, the Pink Wellie Planner a Wedding planner & coordinator based in the Scottish Borders

Quick fire round....

Where are you based?

I live in the beautiful Scottish Borders, with my husband and two boys. 

How did you get into Wedding Planning?

I started an Event Apprenticeship in 2013 at a restaurant in Edinburgh, I quickly found myself leaning towards event planning and the behind the scenes logistics.  I then looked to make my first proper step into the events world and landed a role as a Wedding & Event Coordinator at 5* Hotel in East Lothian. Here I was thrown in the deep end and organised, dealt with enquires and ran things on the day and absolutely loved it! 

 

The rest is pretty much history, my next few roles in one way or another focused around events and the various sides that come together to make an event. Through the years, I have grown in confidence and have mastered the art of organising an event, grown my reputation with suppliers and picked up a shed load of experience!

4 Venues later, 3 various supplier jobs and 9 years later I created my own Wedding planning business in October 2022 - Pink Wellie.

How many weddings have you worked on? 

Now this is a guesstimate as until Pink Wellie I never made a note of all the weddings and events I was a part of but looking back I am in the region of 300!

Why is it called 'Pink Wellie'?

Once I had made the decision to move on from my last role and I was working out my notice I was sitting at my desk daydreaming about starting my own wedding planning business. I looked over at my trusty pen holder - a pair of pink wellies (this pen holder had been with me for years and I always had it on my desk) and I knew that needed to be the name! 

What do you love about planning weddings?

I honestly don't know where to start with this one but I'll try and give and break it down:

  • Supporting people to create a wedding focused on those once in a lifetime moments

  • Offering advice about things you have seen and experienced in the past

  • The 'BUZZ' of a wedding!

  • Knowing you can keep calm in stressful situations to help and support those around you

  • Making all the spreadsheets!

  • Thinking outside the box - especially when supporting those to make their own traditions

  • Getting to know couples and their stories along with their nearest and dearest 

  • Taking a small seed of an idea and turning it into something wonderful!
