I started out my professional career as a scientist in Melbourne, Australia, but the 9-5 drill wasn’t for me. In 2013, for a range of personal reasons my world fell apart and I couldn’t get out of bed. However, the support and encouragement of my loving husband is what got me through.
So, I left my job, took a deep breath and went back to school to study Hospitality and Event Management.
Following this, I worked with some of Melbourne’s finest wedding and event planners and on the side, I volunteered at a lot of prestigious events. It was at this point in time that I conceived the concept of The Maharani Diaries, a portal in which I could use my experience to provide Maharani’s with a one-stop resource.
As I was about to sit down and figure this all out, the hubby landed a job in Ireland! Having grown up in Melbourne for the most part of my life, this was a huge step and I honestly didn’t know what to think. But we both took the plunge and have since relished the experience of working and living in a different country.
The Maharani Diaries is the culmination of a personal dream and everything I have learnt about not only planning my wedding, but about the industry as a whole. Rather than building just another wedding blog, my intention is to create a community. A community where brides and wedding industry professionals can come together to share their love and passion for all things wedding related.
So, here it is! My labour of love.
Whether it’s about infusing western aesthetics with more traditional elements or planning a destination wedding, I want to share in the joys with you.
We have loads of exciting projects lined up in the coming weeks and months ahead, but in the mean time, I’d like to express how excited I am about being a part of your special day.
Hope you’ll join us on the ride!
Last but not least I want to dedicate this website to my mother. She was and will always remain an inspiration to me.
