We are twin sisters, Jo and Sarah, living within the 4 counties area and both with wedding and event planning backgrounds. We started Champink in 2011 creating parties and larger weddings across London, Middlesex and even in Ireland. Jo brings a wealth of experience from her corporate and community event planning skills whilst Sarah has been planning weddings for over 15 years, Both of us have marketing, sales and negotiation skills perfect for getting you the best deal. We have the passion and experience in the weddings and events industry, bringing both of our skills and experience together to ensure all our clients get a fun, friendly, bespoke and of course reliable and professional service.
Hi I am Jo, the ‘pink’ half of Champink! I have two children and live with my husband Mark in Oxfordshire. I really enjoy a good bubbly afternoon tea and going on city breaks and love finding country pubs to visit. I like to create traditional events with a twist. I have a varied background, including sales & marketing, training & development and corporate and community event planning in the UK and worldwide. I have arranged large-scale food festivals, wedding fayres, and networking events and I really enjoying meeting suppliers and looking around venues to recommend to our clients. I am also a qualified football coach. My dislikes are spiders, frogs, and raw potatoes!
Hiya, I am Sarah, the ‘Cham’ in Champink, due to my bubbily tastebuds and personality and because I love a glass of champers! I have a love of collecting handbags and matching shoes! I have a creative mind and can visualise my clients’ dreams with plenty of inspiration to offer. I love to travel and relax by the sea, I like fashion and love to shop. Being unique is important and I like to ensure each wedding and event is different and always look for ways to bring out my clients’ personalities. I live in Buckinghamshire with my husband and two adorable cats. I’m not a fan of balloons and I always try to accessorise and colour match what I’m wearing (even if it means buying new shoes!).
The story so far………
The name Champink came about as Sarah loves champagne and as for Jo… well what’s more girlie then the colour pink! Being twins everything is halved and shared so we have introduced this into our business name CHAM-PINK and we love it!
Jo previously worked for a large worldwide corporate organisation planning and delivering training courses and corporate events and conferences and also worked in community event planning for 5 years. Sarah started her career in 2000 planning weddings for a beautiful Victorian hotel. We both fell in love with the events and wedding industry and meeting new people, and helping bring their dreams to life. Sarah worked closely with couples and their families and being part of someone’s special day and seeing the end results kept her on her heels for hours on end! So we started arranging parties together including corporate functions, gala dinners and weddings in our spare time. We then got into planning larger weddings and received great feedback, so we decided to start a business doing what we loved and to continue delivering amazing special events… so in 2011 Champink was created!
We were involved in assisting venues to build up their wedding bookings and were responsible for creating publicity, brochures and photo shoots for them and running large luxury weddings. Our work and reputation took us further afield into Ireland and even Cyprus. By 2018 we had worked with many suppliers and started to build a trustworthy supplier list that we could match and recommend to our clients.
Ten years on and the Champink story continues…
