I’ve known wedding planner Kirstin Halstead for quite a few years. We first met at a very fancy industry event, where we both felt like fish out of water and spent nearly the entire night side by side trying not to make eye contact with anybody!
I liked her the moment we met. She’s warm, she’s friendly and she has a wicked sense of humour. In fact some of you will know Kirstin too. I featured her own adorable Nashville elopement just a few months ago!
So when she got in touch so say she’d love plan not one but two Rock n Roll Bride readers’ weddings for free, I jumped at the chance to help her host the contest.
“Hi! My name is Kirstin and I live in beautiful historic England in a small town in Yorkshire with my husband Ash”, she writes. “We plan weddings and elopements all over the world. I have a passion for the United States, fashion, parties, trend setting, rebelling against the norm and I drink way too much caffeine. In 2014 I went on a beautiful adventure with Ash to our favourite place in the world, and eloped. We got married in a secret location in the back roads and then partied the night away in Music City. It was intimate, romantic, perfect and we sang our vows to each other.”
“We plan destination weddings and elopements for the couple who cant sit still, they love to travel, long for adventure and have kick ass personal style and wanderlust.”
This amazing competition will have two winning couples, one getting married in England and the other getting hitched in Nashville!
She continues, “Having worked successfully in the wedding and events industry for nearing six years in the hotel, PR, wedding planning and transportation sector, I have the experience and excellent contacts in the United States and Europe. I can create the perfect adventure for you overseas. Be it a destination wedding with your nearest and dearest or maybe you want to ditch them and run away together on a romantic elopement, we have unrivalled knowledge of unique locations, world class suppliers and accommodation and secret hideaways that will take your breath away.”
“We eloped in Nashville and had the time of our lives. But most importantly our wedding was all about our love for one another and love of America. We have experienced eloping first hand and wouldn’t change a thing!”
