ALL ABOUT Us

Planning a wedding or a big event can be both expensive and stressful. Here at Lily Jones Events we believe that everyone should have access to a professional and experienced event manager so that you can enjoy your event to the full. We take the stress out of planning an event so you can focus on the fun parts!

Our ethos is handmade, bespoke and personal so we will work with you to create the perfect event that matches your unique style - we're a dab hand at crafting, building, painting and thinking outside the box! We specialise in quirky, themed and alternative events that bring out your uniqueness.

We are based in Kent, the beautiful Garden of England, but work all over the UK and where possible, we always recommend local suppliers.

LILY JONES

Owner & Senior Wedding & Event Planner
After having worked in the event & hospitality industry for 7 years, I decided to start my own events company in 2019 to help bring affordable and high quality wedding planning & event management to the South East.

Originally from London, I moved to Kent in 2010 and fell in love with the beautiful Garden of England. I have worked in numerous event roles throughout the years from silver service to hostessing to event managing. I have organised events in the UK and internationally, from small scale to large scale, personal to corporate, and always bring my passion and enthusiasm into my work as well as a keen eye for detail and meticulous organisation. I now live in Ashford with my husband, three year old daughter and our energetic westie.

LAURA HARWOOD

Wedding & Event Planner

Having modelled for a long time, I really took a love for the bridal styled shoots I was involved in and started to plan and organise the shoots as well as model for them.
I’ve always had a passion for events and it was always a dream I wanted to pursue. After planning a number of shoots I then decided to hold charity events, my latest one being a big fashion show to help raise money for Mind.

I have a big background in marketing and corporate events and I am so pleased to use my knowledge and passion for the industry to finally get the opportunity to work alongside Lily in the wedding business.

I am very bubbly with a great sense of humour (I like to think so anyway), and never take life too seriously. I have grown up in Kent and still live here with my family in Maidstone but hoping to move out soon with my boyfriend.

WHY CHOOSE US?

'Event Managers,' 'Wedding Planners,' 'Party Planners,' whatever you would like to call them, they are always seen in the movies as used by the well-to-do but that needn't be the case! An event manager isn't there to take over the fun parts of organising an event, in fact, we are here to take the stressful parts away so that you can relax and enjoy the fun parts! When planning an event there are so many logistics to sort out and people to liaise with so wouldn't it be wonderful if you could sleep soundly in the knowledge that an experienced event manager has all of this covered for you? And at an affordable price too? Then look no further than Lily Jones Events.

We work closely with you to find the right venue and suppliers for your vision but we also have our own recommended suppliers that we know well and have negotiated special deals or extra perks with to make your event extra special and value for money.

We can be as involved in your event planning process as you wish and offer a bespoke service where you pick and choose what you would like from your event manager. This is all discussed at your free initial no-obligation consultation.
