I’m Jade, owner of the very creatively named Jade Leung Weddings and Special Events!
I grew up in Caernarfon, North Wales and now live just a few miles away in Llanrug with my new husband Iwan (I mean 'new' in the sense that we are very recently married!) and our two daughters Lŵsi and Elsi. I have lived in the area for most of my life, apart for a couple of years in Newcastle where I completed my Masters’ degree, and a couple of years in London and Reading, where I started my professional career in events. It was this time away that has ultimately led me here, into the wedding industry!
If I’m honest, I always fancied myself as a wedding planner. Especially the cliché headset wearing Jennifer Lopez style! But growing up it wasn’t ever really seen as a career option. Living in Newcastle; a young, trendy, fashion forward City a little later in life (mid-twenties) was great because it opened my eyes to expressing yourself and your individuality, and to being creative. It was then that I found a love of design, particularly in fashion and interiors. The wedding design bug didn’t kick in properly until a few years ago, but that ethos of doing things your own way and embracing your personality and uniqueness has stuck with me in my wedding planning and styling.
Fast forward to July, 2017, aged 32, and with 6 years of events experience and a Wedding planning and design accreditation in the bag ... and Jade Leung Weddings and Special Events was born! TA-DA!
If you’re after a creative eye, and an unflappable nature, then I think you’ve come to the right person! Please do get in touch to find out more.
PS. excuse the frizzy hair in my picture - too busy styling away to notice!
