WEDDING co-ordinator Gemma Sargent has organised the happiest days of many people’s lives, but now all eyes are on her as she heads to an industry awards final.
Gemma, of Market Weighton, has only worked at the KP Club in Kilnwick Percy for 15-months but her organisational skills have clearly impressed her clients as she was recently voted the region’s top wedding co-ordinator in The 2012 Wedding Industry Awards.
She will now travel to London for the final awards ceremony on 18 January in the hope of scooping the national prize.
Gemma said: “I was really pleased to be voted regional winner.
“Some of my brides contacted me personally to tell me that they had voted for me, people have been so lovely to me.”
Gemma’s role is primarily in the planning stages of the wedding, but she has still been to her fair share of her clients’ ceremonies to help out on the big day.
“I do really enjoy my job,” she said.
“But my favourite bit is when it has got to the day itself and no one is panicking anymore!”
