Location / Coverage: Located in St Neots, Cambridgeshire, with nationwide coverage
What does Rocks and Frocks do?
Rocks and Frocks are creative wedding planners. We pride ourselves on interpreting your requirements in a professional, methodical manner to provide a seamless, elegant, stress free wedding.
How did Rocks and Frocks come about and how long has the business been going?
Rocks and Frocks started after I had to retire from my Account Director role within the design and print arena due to health reasons. With a solid project and account management background working on global accounts my skill set was transferable to the event industry. I spent three years working for a production company on worldwide events before launching Rocks & Frocks Ltd.
Who works at Rocks and Frocks and what are your roles?
There is myself, Vanessa, and I am Co-Director and Wedding Planner, and I’m lucky enough to work with my husband, Dominic. He is also a Co-Director and not only assists me on my larger weddings but runs our premium 5ft letter hire side of the business. We also have the lovely Sue and Lizzie who form part of the planning team on our larger weddings.
What is the inspiration behind your name Rocks and Frocks?
I’m afraid several bottles of champagne on a girlie night in led to the name. The two things that most girls focus on at the beginning of their wedding journey are the engagement/wedding rings and the wedding dress. Hence the name Rocks and Frocks Ltd.
