and this is my story
I'm the designer, planner and boss lady at The Little Details by Sophie.
I work from home in Penryn, Cornwall, where I live with my amazing husband (and advocate!), David.
As a child I was a Disney obsessed, stationary loving, creative dreamer…
As well as being creative, I was a water baby (or a little mermaid as my family call me). If you took me anywhere near the sea, I would be in it, I wouldn’t get out even if I was freezing.
All my friends had dreams of ‘real’ jobs. No one suggested creative jobs when we discussed them. That’s when I decided I wanted to be a marine biologist, to my friends it was still a crazy idea but to me it was a bit more like a ‘normal job’ and I believed I’d get to travel the world with a job like that.
I studied marine biology at college and university for six years and throughout this time my love for the environment and protecting it grew stronger and stronger. Although, alongside this I worked in hospitality, I loved working weddings and events and I would always be put in charge of making sure the little details were perfect.
I fell in love with the planning and design process of my own wedding. After getting married in June 2019, I wanted to somehow make the wedding industry part of my life. I would get to be the creative person I loved being when I was a little girl and make sure the day is as sustainable as possible. I took a giant leap, I signed up to the Wedding Academy (to ensure that I know the tricks of the trade) and decided to launch my own wedding planning business in January 2020.
But... that's how it started, where am I now?
