The Designer Behind The Details
Wedding Planner * Wedding Stylist * Floral Designer * Academy Tutor
So if you are obsessed with details, then believe me, I get where you are coming from! Unfortunately I am genetically programmed as a perfectionist with a natural eye for details and what will just “work” together – fantastic if you want me to work on your wedding with you, nightmare to live with me! What is most important to me in life is being true to yourself and being happy. And I believe your wedding should TOTALLY reflect this ethos.
My journey into weddings, as with most of my life, is not a straightforward one! A fascination about the world we live in led me to do a degree in geography, which led to a love of urban design and architecture, and suddenly 8 years later I was still at university and am now a Doctor of Geography. But although I am a Doctor, please do not ask me for medical assistance, the best I can do is draw you a map to the nearest hospital! My researching skills and questioning skills are highly developed but I missed the people part so I made the obvious leap into primary school teaching!
It was in the classroom that I learnt to perfect the art of thinking on your feet, crisis management, creative thinking and forward planning! Believe me when I say that organising and planning 30 ten year olds for six hours a day, five days a week, is more challenging than planning the most complex of weddings! So after 7 and a half years of teaching 9-11 year olds and planning my own wedding, I decided I would quite like to set up my own wedding business. So I did. And this is where you have found me today a wedding planner, wedding stylist, & trained florist.
I am now an academy tutor with the UK Academy of Wedding & Event Planning where I tutor on the Diploma in Floral & Event Styling and host the 2 day live workshop for this course.
Although I live, breathe and sleep weddings, I am also a keen chef specialising in gluten free food because I have coeliac disease, I adore travelling and just experiencing new people & places, and love watching live sports events. My ideal five minutes would be watching a sunset over the sea with a glass of champagne in hand chatting to my nearest and dearest.
Wedding Planning & Wedding Styling Experience
Dedicated2Detail Wedding Design was launched in 2011 as a wedding planning & wedding styling business based in Warwickshire. Since then Dee has been involved with over 200 events. At the end of 2015 the decision was made to focus on a personalised wedding styling service working exclusively on one wedding on any given date and in-house florstry was added to the business. Dee also decided that it was about time that she put her name over the door. The result was the birth of a new brand Dee McMeeking Wedding Styling.
Dee has trained with the UK Academy of Wedding & Event Planning undertaking a Diploma in Wedding Planning, Styling & Design.
Author of 3 eBooks available on the Amazon Kindle Store, Dee has written extensively on wedding planning & styling.
