Q: Who is Sancha and when did you start Sancha’s Events? What was the main reason why you started your own business planning business?
Sancha: I am a Brazilian Award-winning Wedding Planner, mother of 2 kids under the age of 5, and I have over 14 years’ experience working in the Hospitality industry. I have specialised myself in weddings and events planning and my biggest dream was to to have my own business, but I just needed the courage to start on my own.
After my kids were born, I had the opportunity and the time to upskill myself and I took the leap of faith and in November 2017 Sancha’s Events was born.
Also, am I’m thrilled to announce that I’m one of the finalists in the Business Woman of the Year Awards – Network Ireland Roscommon Branch.
I am really passionate about what I do, I love the whole building up to the event and I enjoy creating relationships with my customers and suppliers. The end result, the event/wedding day is always so intense and emotional, as I see their vision coming into reality. This is what really makes me happy! And who doesn’t love a good love story, eh?
