My name is Beth, and I am the face behind Legally Brunette!
I graduated with a law degree and quickly went into legal practice. However, my secret passion was always weddings and events! I say “secret” because…imagine trying to explain to people how you could possibly be interested in events planning when you work in such a corporate industry. Exactly!
The truth is the two industries actually have so much in common! During my legal career I have refined my planning and organisational skills so much so, that I decided to put them to good use.
I had always joked that one day in the future when I had completed my stable legal career, I would take the plunge into the weddings and events industry. However, when Covid-19 hit, I was one of many unfortunate redundancies made at my firm. Although I was shocked and upset, I felt as though the career Gods were giving me the not so gentle nudge that I needed to make the leap of faith! I started to train research and intern in the wedding industry and voila! Legally Brunette has been born.
My passion for planning means that this is a job that I truly love! I am privileged to be trusted with the most important days of people’s lives and seeing them pulled off seamlessly is a dream. I adore working with couples to help them create the best day of their lives and seeing everything come together the way we have planned, gives me a “I want to do a happy dance in the corner” kind of feeling!
I enjoy all kinds of weddings, but there is a special place in my heart for outdoor weddings! Although they are more complex, there is something about having a blank canvas with endless possibilities. Bringing together your own unique team of suppliers, from caterers to stylists, and entertainment to bar hire. Each outdoor wedding is so different!
In my spare time I run a cat rescue charity which was also a passion which came to fruition during lockdown 2020. Yes, I am definitely a crazy cat lady and proud. So, if I am not making lists and checking them twice, I can usually be found cuddling a cat or two!
I would love to hear from you if you think we could be a good match to work together in creating your dream day!
