The face behind The Country Blush!

Hello! Welcome to my first ever blog! My name is Evie and I am the owner of The Country Blush, a wedding and event planning company. I thought that there was no better place to start than by getting to know the person behind the business – finding out what makes me tick and some fun facts too!

Wedding and Event Planner - Kent, East Sussex & the South East
Evie West - The Country Blush

I’ll start with the usual; I have a husband, a daughter and a cocker spaniel. We live in Pluckley, a lovely little village in Kent. Some of you may recognise Pluckley as where the Darling Buds of May was filmed, or even as one of the most haunted villages in England. Luckily (!!) I haven’t seen any spooky goings on in the five years that I have lived here! There is an abundance of gorgeous countryside around Pluckley, which I love to explore on walks with my family – come rain or shine we can be found trekking through fields and scrambling across stiles.

Aside from my family, I have three main loves in my life: food, travel and lists. As clichéd as it sounds – I truly do love a list. I’m the sort of person who has lists of lists and I’m also guilty of re-writing lists as I cross things off! I should probably also mention at this point that I LOVE to use an exclamation mark – I do need to work on that, so please bear with me!

I love it when I travel somewhere new and I get to experience different foods - if you asked me where my favourite place in the world was, I would probably pick somewhere based on the food that I’d eaten there! However, my all-time favourite meal is a traditional roast dinner – I have been known to squeeze two in some Sundays!

As much as I enjoy jetting off to discover a new country, I also love spending time exploring closer to home. Family holidays with our spaniel are the best; watching her race up and down the beach, renting a little cottage in the middle of nowhere and sitting in the car munching a packed lunch whilst it pours down outside.

Here are five fun facts about me:

1. I once ate a whole jar of Nutella in a day

2. I was an active member of my local Young Farmers’ Club

3. 2020 is the only year of my life that I haven’t been on an aeroplane

4. I love singing in the car – badly!!

5. Scattergories is my all-time favourite game

The best piece of advice I’ve been given – wear maternity jeans when eating out so that you can eat more without becoming uncomfortable.

A piece of advice that I would pass on – although it can be scary, in order to reach our goals, we need to forget perfection, just be brave and give it a go.

To find out about how I can help you plan your dream wedding or event - take a look at my website where you will find detailed information about the services which I offer.

I hope to hear from you soon!
