Who are we?

The Event Design Team

We are a small but perfectly formed event design & décor team, headed by Liz and Doug, and supported by Avril, Viv and our amazing casual and agency staff.

We live and breathe weddings and events and have been in business for 27 years. We are passionate about what we do and get a real kick out of transforming venues. And we LOVE working with new ideas!

Get to know us a bit better below, or jump straight to our contact details to get in touch.

We can’t wait to work with you.

Liz the MD and CEO of Stressfree The Venue Transformers


Liz is our founder and CEO. One of the first wedding planners and stylists in England in 1995, she used her background in consultancy to build a very successful business as well as contributing to the growth of the industry. She introduced many private properties to the venue market and even developed concepts such as On The Day wedding co-ordination which are still widely in use today.

Organised and meticulous, her attention to detail is second to none. Over the years of organising luxurious weddings everywhere from London to New York and Monte Carlo, she is widely regarded as an event design industry expert appearing on television or sharing her expertise in print.

When she is not working, she can often be found gardening in her vegetable plot, playing the Saxophone or practising Greek.


After 5 years of helping out behind the scenes, Doug officially joined the team in 2000. He is our resident designer, engineer, artist and inventor and one of those people who can always come up with a practical solution to any problem!

Designing and building all kinds of props, temporary or permanent installations, he loves a challenge and is fabulous at making new, exciting ideas seem effortless for our clients. He can take a Pinterest board or a client’s inspiration from an Instagram feed and bring it to life in a venue.

When he is not working, Doug can generally be found in his workshop.  He always has a project on the go, and he can re-purpose or recycle virtually anything!  He is Dad to our black cat Churchill and loves cooking, regularly concocting new recipes.
