After an absolutely overwhelming amount of awe-inspiring applications to the job opening here at Burnett’s Boards, I couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Claudette to the team! I’ll let her take it from here and introduce herself!
“Hi everyone! I’m Claudette and I’m so excited to be sharing my story with you here.
Lets start at the very beginning, a very good place to start! (The Sound of music is my jam!)
I was born and raised in England and no, I don’t know the Queen, and yes I have a mild tea obsession. I had the best childhood! We were always exploring little villages, going for walks in the park and when it was too rainy to go outside, I would craft up a storm at home.
I love to dance and have been since I was 3 years old. Being in that kind of environment where there is only a right way and a wrong way, I think helped make me the perfectionist I am today.
Skipping forward a few years and uncovering my love for stationery, I found my second love… my fiancé (almost husband agh!) His family was moving to Canada and I came along for the ride. That was 8 years ago and we have been moving in hyper speed ever since!
We built a beautiful home together and have a miniature (more of a of an extra medium) dachshund called Frank. This September we are getting married at this beautiful venue back in the UK.
Since moving to Canada, I am lucky to have found a career where I can mix my type A personality, with my girly, creative fun-loving romantic side. Wedding Planning. I have my own company Claudette Marie Events and am currently working on a fabulous new re design!
I love being able to work with couples and help them create the day of their dreams. A wedding doesn’t need to be a stuffy stressful mess. It is an exciting time and a chance to celebrate with your loved ones. Taking your personalities and mixing it with fabulous inspiration and ideas, and at the end of it all, you get to be married to your person! What could be better?
I think there is something wonderful about a comfy grey sweater and some good old classics. Breakfast at Tiffany’s, West side story and The Sound of Music. Flowers are my weakness and brownies are my fuel and sometimes it’s the little things in life that are the best.
I’m really looking forward to seeing all the beautiful weddings and shoots and sharing them with you all”.
