Hi there! I’m Courtnie and if you’re here I’m guessing you want to know a little about me.
I am a London girl and from a young age I was enamoured with Italy. The language, the food, the climate and the beauty of the country was all very appealing, so at the age of 18 I made the decision to go. It ended up being one of the best decisions of my life. I met one of the most amazing women in the world, who is still a dear friend to this day, and together we ran our very own private language school in Rome.
After a total of five years I decided it was time for me to move back to London where I spent two years as a personal assistant for an editor of a national newspaper and eventually moved into events management, which I absolutely loved! I had the privilege of working with some fantastic, large corporations and high-profile clients to create amazing events as well as a lot of private individuals for their incredibly special and personal celebrations. Weddings, birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, you name it, I did it! That was the next five years of my life, bringing me up to date and to the start of Courtnie Events.
I now live in Stockholm, Sweden where my free time is often filled with food and drink and writing about my gluttonous ways on my site This Girl Needs A Drink
In addition to this, I am lucky enough to have a great bunch of talented friends who like to throw a party as much as I do but all in aid of raising money and awareness for various causes. If you would like to see when our next London bash is you can find us on Facebook
