Hi, my name is Jen and I am the founder and proud owner of Ocean Weddings & Events. I swapped rainy London for sunny Queensland over 9 years ago and fell in love, not only with beautiful Port Douglas, but also my husband Rian, marrying him on the beach in Palm Cove in 2011.
After working as a scuba diving instructor in some of the worlds best locations including Fiji, Thailand and the Great Barrier Reef, I climbed out of the water and into the office.
Working in sales & marketing and business events with key members of the boating, tourism and events industries for the last 5 years, I have built up an extensive knowledge on what this beautiful region has to offer.
My passion for the ocean and love of event planning lead me to start Ocean Weddings & Events, bringing along my husband and not forgetting the most important members of the family, Frankie and Luna!
Since starting my business I have had the pleasure of planning multiple weddings along with other events such as baby showers and birthday parties. I was a finalist in the 2017 Douglas Business & Tourism Awards and in 2018 a winner! Taking away the runner up award for the Best Wedding Co-ordinator. I was also voted #1 Winner in the Brides Choice Awards 2018 for the Wedding Planning category. I truly love what I do!
