“The secret is simple, I simply love what I do!”
Hi I’m Caroline Griffiths. Founder of Bridal Gossip.
It’s true, ever since I watched the film “The Wedding Planner” with Jennifer Lopez; and Father of the Bride with Franc the eccentric wedding planner. I knew I wanted to work in the wedding industry. From initial inspiration to impeccable organisation, I love to bring ideas to life, provide support, guidance and recommendations to create truly memorable weddings.
Cornwall and Devon have some breath taking locations so there is no question why couples want to tie the knot in the South West. Luckily being born in Cornwall myself, and privileged to work with some of the most talented suppliers in the industry, your wedding is in the best hands! Each and every wedding is planned and managed with the same care and level of attention to detail. I offer a calm, efficient, supportive and above all personal approach to weddings and planning.
The secret is simple, I simply love what I do!….
When I’m not planning, I love spending time with my family and friends enjoying good food, with long walks by the sea, or in the countryside with my welly boots, husband, and two Springer Spaniels Mylo and Maisie.
My Experience and Passion
My life in the wedding industry began in a family run Italian restaurant. I adored everything about it especially the diversity of busy weekends, whilst celebrating so many different occasions with guests. Being half Italian I grew up with large family gatherings and became a total foodie! I trained and worked as a chef and a restuarant manager alongside various roles within hospitality, leaving me skilled in menu design, operations and coordination. After graduating with a degree in Graphic Design I soon realised my expertise lay within project management, so in a well-regarded job I learnt incredibly useful skills, such as event management and logistical planning. With a natural eye for detail and quirky ideas, it inspired me to combine my degree with my other passion to give a unique and tailored experience, whilst understanding the importance of creating an individual, and memorable event.
Working in the wedding industry was a perfect transition, learning invaluable knowledge and experience in customer service, planning many weddings for some of the leading venues in Cornwall, and learning many skills. I’ve been fortunate enough to organise an array of weddings and events, from intimate and romantic weddings to extravagant parties. Each and every occasion is planned and managed with the same care and level of attention to detail.
I adore being part of each and every journey and you’ll normally find me blubbing with a tissue, whilst you say your vows or the surprise is unveiled. ……. 15 years later Bridal Gossip was born.
I pride myself in offering couples a personal and blissful experience. I always ensure emails and phone calls are responded to quickly and effectively. I also make sure you know where you are with your planning at all times – whether it’s budget tracking or outstanding tasks, there should be no confusion.
From the beginning I focus on getting to know you, and I hope that you quickly feel you can pick up the phone and talk through your ideas or concerns at any point. As your wedding planner it’s key that I understand and share your vision in order to deliver your event as you have always hoped.
An important principle for me is that this is your wedding. My aim is, of course, to make your planning as effortless and enjoyable as possible; as this is a time in your life that should be fun! At all times you will remain in control of your wedding – I’m here to share my knowledge, make recommendations and ensure your day is organised to a high standard.
