My Music degree led me to work for the LSO (London Symphony Orchestra) and following some time in their education team I began work at their venue. There I began my career in events and there I also met my husband!
Since then I have had the pleasure of working in the Wedding and Events industry for over 11 years in heritage, unique and listed venues in London.
I have enjoyed managing events for Prince Charles, Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. I have worked with popular figures such as Sir David Attenborough and Former Vice President of the US, Al Gore. My career has also enabled me to work with giants in the music industry from classical stars such as Sir Simon Rattle, Lang Lang and Yuja Wang to popular musicians such as Sir Tom Jones, Annie Lennox and Robbie Williams.
In the corporate world, my clients have included the Bank of England, GlaxoSmithKline, Financial Times, China Telecom, Omidyar Network, Mercury Music Prize, Microsoft, UBS and Warchild to name a few.
When I'm not looking after my amazing toddler, or managing a wonderful client's wedding or event, I am at work (part-time) in London's Natural History Museum as the Venue Hire team's Business Development Manager. I thrive on being busy, yet organised!
If you need any help or advice on planning your wedding or event or you want to discuss any of our services further then please get in touch.
5 FUN FACTS
My favourite place to be is the Cotswolds (I'm an old lady at heart who likes to sit by a river enjoying a cream tea).
I have quite a big sweet tooth so I love a good dessert station. I love starters as well though, so if I was in a restaurant I'd always like to go for two starters and a dessert and skip the main!
My favourite flower is the hydrangea.
I'm a massive Friends fan and will often relate a life moment to a Friend's reference.
When I was younger I wanted to be a dancer and specifically to dance in the Disneyland parade and despite training till 18 years old I couldn't pursue it due to injury.
MISSION AND VALUES
At Lucy Meehan Events the mission is to provide an exclusive and personal service with meticulous attention to detail.
After over a decade in the events industry the company was set up to utilise my experience as well as my special skill set. This special skill set is at the heart of the company’s values.
Exclusivity - When planning a wedding or an event every client wants their guests to have a special, authentic and unique experience. In order to achieve this I use the experience gained over the last 11 years witnessing what works and what doesn’t work. I also use my relationships with suppliers and industry contacts to ensure I remain up to date on industry trends and new ideas.
Personal Service - Having worked with many clients over the years something they have all valued is my ability to thoroughly understand what they want to achieve and my commitment to working with them to ensure it is delivered. I do this by asking the right questions and by truly listening.
Attention to detail – I have always considered accuracy to be a key part of planning and delivering any wedding or event. A meticulous attention to detail is about being careful, thorough and exact at all stages, from researching ideas right the way through to delivering the detailed schedule.
Lucy Meehan Events Ltd is Essex based but I mainly work in London, Essex, Kent and Surrey and can work further afield in the UK and Internationally.
