A little bit about me!


'Sure to Surprise You' started in April 2011 and has gone from strength to strength in the past 9 years. Starting with a couple of sets of cutlery we soon established a large hiring range. Working on some incredible events and being able to plan them as well as planning so many fabulous weddings has been pure joy!

My background in event management and hospitality started when I was 16..(it seems like forever ago!). Working at music festivals, the Edinburgh International Book Festival, hotels, theatre and bars all put me in good stead to continue into eventing after I finished my degree in English and Film-studies at Aberdeen University.


Love made me move south (from bonnie Scotland!) to Windermere, The Lake District where I quickly began working in tourism and hospitality, running events all over the Lakes before I started to brave it on my own.

I love living in this stunning area - romance is always in the air and who can blame you with glorious scenery, scrummy food and a nice little tipple just round every corner! I am also kept busy with my two charming (on occasion!) children!

My love the area has recently (in 2019) grown when I launched Eye on Cumbria AND Eye on Cumbria Weddings and Events. After many years of visiting fo many fabulous places in Cumbria and The Lake District I wanted to share them with as many people as possible. Both are a huge passion for me as I get to travel, meet all the wonderful locals and learn more about their businesses inorder to share them far and wide with you.
