WELL HELLO AND WELCOME TO MY WORLD!

I am the owner of White Rose Occasions, and love creating beautiful, memorable weddings and events for my clients. I bought the company in 2016 and have expanded into parties, corporate events and destination weddings.

Having a successful career in childcare and development in Yorkshire through being a day nursery provider, before expanding into teaching and training nursery nurses, also developing business strategies and having excellent organisational skills.

HELLO, I’M JACKIE

“Creating bespoke weddings and events by design”

Since re-branding White Rose Occasions, I have organised well over 200 weddings working with some of the most exclusive venues in Yorkshire.
I have transformed a blank canvas into a spectacular event with and expert team and only the best suppliers. All our clients are important and I value every minute we have together to share your ideas and views, and provide a service with you in mind.

During my profession as a childcare development lecturer/assessor/internal verifier for my local collage, and owning a day nursery, I realised children needed entertaining at weddings and events too. So I created Confetti Childcare – Mobile crèches for weddings and celebrations, providing childcare for children from 3 months to 8 years.

Having this experience enables me to pursue a career in the wedding industry.
Recently completing a wedding business course with the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners, gaining valuable experience and knowledge and understanding of organising a wedding or event.

Family Life

I am very family orientated and spend quite a lot of time with my family. I have 4 adult children and 6 grandchildren who are very supportive and like to get involved in my business.

I have been married for 35 years to my best friend and husband Nick, and we love to travel and see the world, and cruising. I’m planning on the Alaskan trip to include Whale watching and visiting Fairmont and Vancouver Island next.
My favourite place so far is Florence in Italy, very romantic.
I feel at easy there, what a wonderful place.

When I’m not planning a wedding, I love play time with my four cats. Since the day after Nick and I were married, we took at kitten in, so cats have been a big part of our lives.
My weakness is anything sparkly, Haha – my team call me “Twinkle”
When I have created a wedding, I love the feedback my team and I receive from our happy couples, and rating our service 5 out of 5 on social media, check out my facebook and Instagram page.
