Jade Izzet – The Wedding planner

Jade is a London born girl with a love for decor and organization. So planning weddings and other events comes naturally to her. Jade, who is working for a North Cyprus real estate developer has been doing wedding planning for the last six years. First as a hobby but now as a part time job through her company Angelic events.

We had a chat with her while she was preparing for a wedding at the Korineum Golf Resort.

A wedding planner takes care of basically everything regarding the wedding as all the legal paperwork, venue, photographer, entertainment, decorations etc. Sometimes the guests want to go on excursions before the wedding or having partys, dinners, and other events. Most of the work is done online.

– I make all the bookings and payments, and I generally stay till the guests are seated for dinner and everything is floating. If they want me to stay for the whole night I charge extra, she says.
A wedding is the couple’s most important day in their life, I like the feeling of that. Meeting different people is also what makes this business interesting and fun.

– The most important thing in the business is to be organized and find people you can trust, she adds. I send an itinerary to the couple and I always make sure to confirm everything the day before. Schedule, tableseating, I go through the whole list. A good advice in this business is never to pay anyone before they turn up. People have a tendency to not show up once they got their money, she says with a smile.

Jade speaks Turkish, English and German fluently, which is a great advantage as many of her clients come from abroad.

– I do mostly English weddings. We have the same law system here, so many choose it because of that. Also it’s a lot cheaper than in the UK. I have some Russian and Kazakh weddings as well, but I don’t really do traditional Cypriot weddings, but a few London-Cypriot ones.

– The season for weddings here is from April to October, with peaks in June and September. People find it too hot in July and August.

Jade is working away while the ceremony continues. Constantly looking to see that everything is in it’s right place. Once everybody is seated for the ceremony she goes on to prepare for the dinner seating.

– We need those vases over here now, she says and walks away to get them.
