About our Founder
Hi there, my name is Donna and I am the founder of the Society of Professional Wedding Vendors. I've spent over 11 years in the wedding industry mainly as a wedding photographer but more recently as a wedding planner of a venue.
I have seen some things in my time that have both amazed and astounded me, in a good way but occasionally in a more shocking way.
I am a huge romantic, I love, love and what marriage means. When I was young, I watched all the fairy tales and as I grew up all the rom-coms and romances. Basically, I live in a world where fairy tales do comes true. You just have to remember they aren't perfect 100% of the time and it doesn't come without effort.
So to me a couples wedding day is the start of this new commitment to each other a day one or both have dreamed of for a long time and they deserve to have the best send of into marriage. I want their day to be perfect for them. But, I have seen on too many occasions and instances where their day has had an imperfect element that could have been avoided.
That is why I created the Society, to encourage professionalism, to support professionalism and to acknowledge and reward professionalism within the wedding industry.
I hope to see you on the inside
