When I was 7 years old my parents surprised me with some exciting news. We were moving to the strange, mysterious land called…the US.
I remember our first Christmas in Chicago, driving through the neighbourhood and watching in complete awe and astonishment the rows of houses, bedecked from top to bottom with twinkly lights, their front lawns covered with life-size figures of Santa Claus, elves, reindeer and anything else that remotely represented Christmas.
Say what you want about the Americans, but if there is one thing they know how to do is celebrate in style!
Even though I only spent 3 years in the US, the excitement that came with witnessing so much effort and commitment going into making a holiday, birthday, wedding or any other special occasion truly MAGNIFICENT stayed with me to this day (and so did the hint of an American accent!).
Since that time, I went from being in a high school band and singing at school events, to studying Sociology and Anthropology at university where I met my other half, Will (we lived in the same student accommodation – I was literally the girl next door!), to then working at a 24/7 medical assistance company as a logistics coordinator, organising highly complex, lifesaving evacuations for patients across the world.

My dream of becoming a wedding planner and designer finally came in fruition once I stumbled upon the website of the UK Academy of Wedding & Event Planning, where I ended up qualifying as a wedding and other special event planner and designer.

Being able to bring a smile (and maybe even a tear or two) to my clients’ faces by organising incredibly detailed, impeccably executed weddings that bring that celebrate the most precious thing in their lives – their love for each other – and bring  that same level of excitement and awe I felt as a little girl looking at those bedazzled neighbourhoods is what brings me indescribable joy and fulfilment. 

Who says your wedding should not be magnificent? Let’s get planning

FROM THE FOUNDER, MARIKA DUDA:

WHY STORIES IN BLOOM

                                                           

Behind the Name

Before I came up with the name Stories in Bloom I agonised for weeks, months even, thinking about what name would perfectly reflect my company, personality and philosophy about weddings. 
I am a true, hopeless romantic at heart, which is why I knew the name had to capture the beauty and romance of weddings.
To me, there is nothing quite as romantic as flowers and foliage. In event design, I am drawn to flowers more than anything else, and I believe that having impactful florals at your wedding can make the biggest difference to the overall look of your day, especially when combined with incredible lighting. 
For a long time, I thought of names that featured specific flowers, but none of them sounded quite right to me. Although the gorgeous blooms and décor were important, wedding planning isn’t just about the visual aspect of the day.
It’s about the couples that found their true soulmate and wanted to spend the rest of their lives together.
The name had to express my belief that each wedding should reflect the couple who was getting married – their lives, personalities, and most importantly – their love stories. 
As soon as I came up with the name Stories in Bloom, I knew that it was perfect, because it was inspired by what weddings are truly about – the beautiful love STORIES, that just like flowers that never wilt, are forever and always IN BLOOM
Because your wedding isn’t the beginning, nor the end of your love story. It’s the day you vow to write the rest of your chapters together.  And that, in itself, is more beautiful than all the flowers in the world.
