Over the years , Matthew and Kirsty have built up a large network of venues and suppliers thus being able to generate ideas for the most unique events. From fireworks to live music, from country cottages to Safari Park weddings, Adept Events can ensure that your event is a day to remember for you and your guests.

Training and practising Law puts both Matthew and Kirsty in a privileged position having had daily experience in client led service, negotiation, planning, organisation and most importantly dealing with stressful situations. These skill sets will guarantee that the journey from imagining your event to the day itself is a smooth, memorable, enjoyable and most importantly part of the experience that you will remember forever (for all the right reasons).

Having organised his own same sex wedding, Matthew and his Best Woman, Kirsty are more than aware of the complexities of organising such an event. They firmly believe that when it comes to planning an event, two heads are definitely better than one. Not only do they have the benefit of a male and female view and opinion but each have their own interests and ideas to bring to the planning of your event which means that you, the client, will receive a service unlike many on the current ‘Events Management’ market.
