Professional Wedding Planner
Cheramie Warren | Professional Wedding Planner, St. Lucia
As the eldest granddaughter in a fairly large family who (still) insists on getting together at every opportunity, and with an innate ability for planning and execution, I became the resident event planner. I was privileged to grow up on the island of St. Vincent – a base for my and my cousins’ summer vacations. Grandma’s house was (and still is!) the place to be on our street. As a natural leader I led the daily activities. I have been planning events since I was a child; everything from family birthday parties to family get-togethers during the Holidays.
Boxing Day celebrations were held at Grandma’s house, and my responsibility was to keep the younger people out of trouble. For New Years’ Day lunch, it was my greatest pleasure to help plan the menus and play hostess to our visiting family members, taking charge of everything from games for the kids, ensuring the adults were comfortable – keeping glasses filled, cars properly parked and all dietary requirements noted so as to avoid unplanned trips to the hospital.
I have worked in the Rooms Division of the Hospitality Industry for over 10 years, nevertheless I always seem to gravitate towards events – volunteering my time and services. Five years ago, I returned to university to pursue a Master’s Degree in Events & Conference Management. Within a year of graduation, earned the designation of Destination Wedding Specialist from The Wedding Planners Institute of Canada, Inc.
Event planning is a passion I actively pursue, along with photography (I am my family’s resident “paparazzi”), and travel. My friends and family know my mantra is … “any reason to get on a plane”. I also love to laugh!
