I'm Kate, a born and bred Brightonian and founder of Jump the Broom!
Born out of a love of throwing banging parties, alongside a pretty deep-rooted aversion to chiffon bows, satin chair covers and *gulp* 'function rooms' (pubs not included - who doesn't love a pub?!) Jump the Broom was a planning consultancy I knew DIY couples were crying out for, because whilst planning a wedding can sometimes feel like an enormous, buttercream smothered mountain to climb, it really doesn't need to be; I live for seeing couples enjoy their wedding day, and enjoy even more being a part of their prep and seeing a vision become a full-blown confetti filled reality!
Before I found my true calling as a Planner, I trained in Drama; quickly discovering that whilst I probably wasn't in line for an Oscar, I had a real knack for directing and seeing a vision brought to life - it not only gave me bags of confidence and a super-effective stage whisper (a handy tool for weddings), but also a nose for bold, unique and design-led events. Plus, I learnt how to manage actors, and if you can manage an actor, you can manage pretty much anyone. To top it all off, I hold a First Class Distinction in Wedding and Event Design and Management (bet you can't say that after a tequila) and have been busying away on some pretty epic celebrations since setting up in 2016.
I currently live an hour out of London with Mr JTB, our small-but-mighty toddler and a matchy-matchy dog and cat duo, Lola and Lolly; I love drinking half cups of tea, indulging in terrible reality TV shows and over-sharing on Instagram, of course.
For me, a celebration should be centred around everything that makes a couple who they are, it should be epic, authentic and topped off with some serious creative deliciousness. So drop me a line, I love a chat, and let's see how we can make your day exactly that: Yours.
Love, Kate x
