Sohni Rai

My Story

Hi!

 

Thanks for clicking on my website! Let me introduce myself - I'm Harpinder and I am the founder of Sohni Rai Weddings & Events. 
 

My interest in event planning started over 15 years ago and its what I believe makes me the perfect partner. I've always been a naturally organised and inquisitive person, always having my to-do list to hand, ensuring everything is ticked off. My Project Management background allows me to think practically and set out and execute each small detail with clear precision and with the help of a spreadsheet or two, gotta love a spreadsheet!

 

I have trained with the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners and now am a proud member of the UKAWP family, so you can rest assured you are in good hands!  

 

I'm passionate about taking the traditional and giving it a touch of modern elegance. When I got married in 2011 I struggled to find anyone that offered a mix of the modern day English wedding with the traditional aspects of an Indian wedding. It was this gap in the market that led me to launch Sohni Rai Weddings & Events, as I want to offer that option to couples, of taking the best of two worlds and being able to mix it up in a way that they want. 

 

Whether it’s a baby shower, birthday party, wedding, or a corporate event, I have the expertise to plan, and run the perfect day. I have experience in planning events for 30 guests to over 400 guests and I assure you that your event is in safe hands. No task is too big or too small. So whether you’re looking for a vintage French theme, a black-tie event, a traditional big fat Asian wedding, or a mix of all of the above, if you can visualise it, I can probably make it happen


I have loved creating and bringing to life the vision of partners I've worked with. I thrive on seeing the joy and happiness on their faces, which is the ultimate reward for me. I know how important it is to keep in mind your ideas and this is the basis of planning for me. Each event is individual and unique and I will work together with you to tailor your event to you, offering the bespoke service that you deserve, helping bring your vision to life. 
 

I can provide you with full support from the beginning of the planning stage through to the day itself. You can leave me to it, or be as involved as you like. The result will leave you speechless (in a good way), whatever you decide. 

 

I generally tend to cover Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and the surrounding areas. Although if you’re looking for a venue a little further afield, I'd be happy to take a look.
