Welcome. I’m Mary Cushen, Owner and Wedding Planner.
Luxury Love Story Weddings.
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.
I take pride in the celebrations I have the pleasure to work on. My creativity, 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.
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, 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.
I was named ‘Wedding Planner of the Year’ for The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA) 2018 for West Midlands. TWIA is one of the only wedding awards that is based on your previous clients’ feedback, making the award even more of an achievement. Ensuring my clients have an exceptional level of service at all times, no matter the service or budget, is number one priority for me. 2018 came with more nominations, with the two most notable being TWIA 2019 Regional finalist and the 3rd English Wedding Awards finalist (winners to be announced later in the year).
