Carys

Carys Faldon

We actually like to describe Carys as our ‘wedding superstar’…mainly because that’s what she is! Carys will keep your plans on schedule and make sure that everything runs smoothly from the time the first guest arrives until the last guest leaves. She has worked in events for several years and knows what it takes to make a wedding day not only memorable but stress-free and unforgettable.

You will find Carys working away hours before the wedding begins, and by the time the first guest arrives…well everything looks Simply Perfect! She is the detail oriented, cool, calm and collected coordinator that every bride wants by her side come wedding day!
