About Me

Hi there! My name is Merridyth and I look forward to working with you to plan your perfect day.

I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself and why I am a passionate eventeur.

I have been planning events for many years and I absolutely LOVE it (I know that sounds cheesy, but it’s true!) Throughout my career and my personal life I’ve planned many events from weddings, fundraisers, corporate events to social functions. The thing I love most about events is that they bring people together from all walks of life to celebrate with laughter, joy, and sometimes tears and create shared memories that can be reminisced upon for years to come. My favourite event that I planned was my own wedding –  I  enjoyed every aspect of the planning process, and the day could not have been more perfect (although I’m slightly biased.) The day after our wedding, I wished I could do it all over again… and that’s how I knew I wanted to do this for  living!

I graduated from the University of Western Ontario with an Honours Business Administration degree, specializing in Marketing. I received my Professional Wedding Consultant & Coordinator certification from the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada , which means that I have been formally trained on planning and coordinating events and am held to a strict code of ethics. I also recently received my designation as a Mexico Destination Wedding specialist and would happily assist in planning your dream destination wedding anywhere in the world!

Words to describe me? Detail-obsessed perfectionist,  reliable, outgoing, quirky and creative! I truly believe that every event should be an expression of YOU (hence the “Custom” in Custom Elegance), and I’m always looking for ways to incorporate unique & personal touches into your day. I will spend a lot of time getting to know your likes/dislikes, tastes, and passions in order to help create an event that is special and perfect to you.

If you have a vision but want someone else to take care of the details, and want to create an event that your guests will be talking about for years to come, you’ve come to the right place.

I look forward to getting to know you and working with you on this exciting planning journey!
