Ruby Tuesday Events started off a few years ago as a one woman show. Since then we’ve grown to offer a full and flexible styling service with a big hire collection and a flair for floral design, and I can’t do it all on my own anymore.
I’m lucky enough to have a fantastic team of strong, talented, creative, wonderful women around me who all bring so much to our team.
You’ll see most of us setting up at events around the north east but there are also a couple behind the scenes who keep things ticking over nicely.
Let’s find out a bit more about who make up Ruby Tuesday Events ……
I’ve worked in the hospitality industry since I was at school and I realised early on that I wanted to work for the best. With over 10 years experience in event management, I’ve worked extensively at the top end of the industry.
My previous roles have included organising, planning and running all kinds of weddings, celebrations and parties in a 5 star hotel as well as working in Michelin Star standard restaurants which require working to a very high standard. I’ve even worked for a couple of celebrity chefs along the way.
I grew up with a flower arranging mum and have always loved fresh flowers
Rachel is the right hand to my left, and we’ve been friends since our school days. We’ve also worked together within the 21 Hospitality Group both as very young adults and again later on as slightly more grown up adults. Rachel has an extensive background in hospitality and has worked in hotels, restaurants and even the Disney Cruise liner as well as the resort.
Shortly after getting married she moved to Australia with her husband and returned home after starting a family. Now with two gorgeous little people at home she is an almost full time mum. Rachel helps me on the days when I’m preparing wedding flowers and she makes all of the button holes and ladies corsages. She also mastered our specific technique for making flower crowns. Rachel is also with me on set up day too, she’s the best a tying ribbons into bows and always makes sure we get a cup of tea.
