A real life Princess…
Helllllloooooo! I’m Charlotte and the ‘Princess’ behind Princess Occasions! Along with my three gorgeous Princesses, (who also happen to be three of my besties!) we are based in Melton Mowbray and deliver stunning venue styling and prop hire throughout Leicestershire and surrounding areas!
So, I guess I should introduce myself and tell you a little about me! Where do I start…
Having had over 10 years experience in Retail Merchandising, I have a true passion for all things pretttty! I just so happened to fall (graciously and effortlessly!) into the wedding industry after styling my own wedding, only to find a niche in the market. I couldn’t find anyone who was, well, like me, I guess! I’m not sure where it stems from, but I have a strong dislike for ANYTHING corporate! All the big companies I was contacting, just didn’t seem to ‘get’ me! I was met with super professional emails, corporate looking invoices and paperwork, blah blah blah! My mantra was then born – a ‘friendly, fun, personal service, Fit for a Princess’! This is the most important day of you life, and you need somebody who cares!! Of course you do!! Someone who will be there when you are having a wobble about style or themes, gets to know you, puts your mind at ease and yet, still delivers amazingggg service! And sooooo, voila, Princess Occasions was formed!
Now of course I couldn’t be a Princess alone, and bribed my three besties (with tiaras and a cuuute uniform!) to come and work with me! So it’s either Nat, Nush or Rach you will see with me, driving around in our flowery van, Belle! Be sure to give us a wave!
With the average wedding now costing in excess of £20,000 (which is crazyyyyy!), our mission is supplying Brides with the most beautiful styling and prop hire, at affordable prices! This does not affect the quality of our services, at all! We promise your venue will be ‘Fit for a Princess’!
I am a true girly girl with an eye for all things pink, glittery and sparkly! My favourite things are shabby furniture, tea & cake and Yankee candles! I also am slightly obsessed with Princesses, and so of course had to incorporate this into my business name!
However, and most importantly of all, I am mummy to Ollie and Maisie Belle (yes, named after Princess Belle from Beauty and the Beast!) They are my absolute life. Everything I do is for them. They have shown me the true meaning of love and magic, that I once believed was only found in fairytales!
At 6 and 8, they are both already showing an interest in the business and love helping me when they can! However, Ollie only likes the blue themed weddings and Maisie, the pink!
I am so lucky to have the best job in the world!
