Crystal Amor Events
Hi, my name is Julie and I am delighted you have clicked on my website.
I would love to get to know you and see what we can create together .
I feel incredibly lucky to do a job I absolutely love !!!
As a young child, a teenager and even as a younger woman I have always
created and made things of beauty.
Isn't it so hard to know what to do when you're growing up?
One of the lovely facts about my business was the natural process for me.
My path in life was always leading towards the creation of Crystal Amor.
Designing & Creating
Where does the fun begin?
From the moment I meet one of my couples.
From the first consultation, right up to your wedding day is a magical
experience for us both.
Believe it or not, I myself get excited about your wedding.
From your bridal collection appointment where you see your bouquet
for the first time to the unveiling of your styled ceremony and reception room,
dressed and ready to have your most special day commence.
It truly is a job that is so rewarding.
How did my business start? Let me tell you how Crystal Amor began ......
My Beauty Career
I started off my career in the Beauty Trade.
Working for a variety of companies like Yves Saint Laurent.
After many years I decided to have a career change and worked for an estate agent.
As time went by I realised I missed my beauty
and decided to go back to college to
study and gain my beauty qualifications.
I opened my own beauty business 19 years ago.
To this day I still run my beauty alongside my
wonderful new world of the wedding trade.
My Creating period
of my life !!
I have always loved creating, designing and making things beautiful.
From my home to birthday parties.
A few years ago I started restoring furniture. I had such a passion seeing a piece of furniture that was dented and worn, to restoring it into something fresh and unique.
My children didn't know what they
were going to come home to next.
I would have painted the
bathroom sink if I could have !!!
How did I get into the
wedding business ?
During this period of my life I had met someone that worked
within the wedding trade creating wedding marquees for
wedding couples. I was asked one day whether I would like to
visit one of the marquees currently being erected and styled
for a couple in a stunning stately home.
When I arrived, I was taken back by its beauty. I was stunned
by the creativity and the design of such a magnificent marquee.
I never knew this world existed, only in glossy magazines..
This was my turning point, a new vocation in life.
A life of creating and designing beyond my wildest dreams.
I had finally found my dream job.
The Start of
Crystal Amor ....
I started off with a friends
40th Birthday Surprise Party.
Erecting a marquee, dance floor on her patio, DJ, adult games area and decor interiors.
This was the moment I knew I could achieve creating events.
During a small time scale of erecting the marquee, I had disaster strike my life. I became paralysed within my right arm and hand. This news was devastating, I may never be able to use my arm or hand again.
As devastating as it was, many
months went by but my determination grew stronger.
I tried everything I could to help with my condition. I had to train my brain that my arm and hand were a part of my body, this meant many months
of tedious and painful therapies.
My New Beginnings...
A large chunk of those many months were spent in sadness. Nearly a year had passed when one day I woke up and decided to create something.
I had a rough plan, but as time went by my plan got bigger and bigger.
It took 9 months for me to
build that tree.
I now know that building my
Tree was my therapy!!
I still work, I still have problems,
but I never gave up this dream...
From creating my tree
I created my perfect job

The Reason I Love My Life and My Work
My pride and joy are the reason
I have kept going with my dreams
to achieve Crystal Amor
You may meet them briefly if you visit
on a day they are with me at my home studio
They are much older than the photo,
so I am sure my son will do the teenage
grunt and my daughter
will be rushing out
Now I Am Reaching
My 5th Year
Crystal Amor Events became my reality, my joy, my creativity and my design.
My dream job and I love every single moment of all the mayhem the wedding trade brings.
It definitely is not a 9 to 5 job !!!
