I currently have a position available for a Work Experience Assistant to work alongside me at a number of weddings throughout this summer.

The majority of my weddings are on Saturdays, so please bear this in mind when applying. Please send an email to with your CV, and a heartfelt introduction to you, your life, and why you would like to work with Vanilla Rose Weddings this summer.
