Hi, I am Soniamarie
– lover of all things people, business and events!
I am passionate about helping entrepreneurs and business owners like you maximise their business potential through the wonderful resource of people.
Having worked in HR for 18 years and the wedding and event industry for 10 years, I know both sides of the fence and so understand the pain points and people challenges that you may be facing. I felt that there was a need within the industry for dedicated HR support and education. So, I decided to create Event HR, specifically for wedding and event business owners in order to fill this gap.
Sometimes all it takes is some professional, personalised advice to get you on track and steer you in the right direction. I pride myself on my jargon-free, straight forward approach to managing HR. I promise not sound like a HR and employment law theory book, but to give you commercially focused guidance and solutions for your people issues.
I have worked in HR since 2000 which is a whopping 18 years!
I have a BA (Hons) degree in Human Resource Management, and Advanced Professional Diploma in Employment Law (Level 7, Masters level)
I am CIPD qualified (Chartered Institute of Personnel Development) and an active member
I used to live and work in the USA doing HR.
I quit full time work to open my own HR consultancy for SME’s in December 2012
I have also been organising and planning events for the last 10 years
I run a wedding and event planning business called Soniamarie Loves
I won the Bride Book Wedding Planner of the Year award in 2018
I am a singer and part of a gospel worship team called Tab Worship
I am an adrenaline junkie and love cars, fast ones and the tallest rides at the theme parks
I love chicken Caesar salad
I studied Spanish to degree level
I used to play the drums, violin and saxophone. I got an A* in my music exam too! (For singing though!)
