Claire Owens is part of PBN Committee for a second year where we put her event planning skills to great use! Claire owns Heart Weddings and Events. She told us this:
I love weddings and events! I’m a true romantic, and at home I surround myself with pretty things, heart motifs and fresh flowers—cala lilies are a particular weakness. But I’m also organised, and like everything in its place. These traits, combined with my passion for people, mean that I am totally dedicated to making your event the very best it can be. I love being part of an occasion that marks such a milestone insomeone’s life.
Although weddings are my passion, I do also cover other special occasions. And if it’s a more business-like affair you’re after, then Heart Corporate is for you. I’m based in Crieff, however happy to travel anywhere in Scotland, and sometimes even further afield.
It felt natural to start Heart, as I’ve worked at management level in the hospitality industry for a number of years, including managing Nick Nairn’s restaurant in Glasgow, and more recently as the Banqueting & Events Manager at the Crieff Hydro Hotel. At the Hydro I was responsible for managing and running a number of large corporate events for companies such as Scottish Water, Tug of War World Championships, the Miss World Finalist Event, and COSLA.
