Welcome. I’m Mary Cushen, Owner and Wedding Planner.
Countryside Weddings | Marquee and Barn Specialist
Mother of twin girls, married my husband after 18 years together and love my job. My favourite colour is green, favourite food is pasta and I’m a bit of a workaholic. On the opposite side, I’m not a big fan of pink or girlie things, not a handbag or shoe hoarder and dislike too many foods to list.
In all honesty, I take pride in the celebrations I have the pleasure to work on. My discretion, high standards and attention to detail, is coupled with an approachable nature. I believe that all clients should enjoy the process, whilst working with an experienced professional who is as excited about your celebration as you are.
Remember, you are not hiring a company or business. You are investing in someone to understand your needs, bring them to life and execute them to perfection.
Being part of someone’s special day is amazing. Yes, it is a huge responsibility, but I love every second. My experience in project management, bookkeeping, business analysis (just to name a few), all help me give you the best possible experience and support.
In terms of wedding planning, as well as the years of experience, I have completed a modern, hands-on wedding course – Planning Redefined and a marquee workshop. Both are run by two wedding planners who have numerous years’ experience in the industry and excellent reputations. I have completed a marquee webinar and course with UKAWP (UK Alliance of Wedding Planners), as well as being an Associate Member of the UKAWP.
Although I may have won various awards and been published worldwide, the one thing I appreciate the most is being part of someone’s day. Meeting their family and friends. Sharing the moments only a select few see. There is no greater honour a stranger could give me.
