“Weddings can be very stressful whether they take place locally or on some romantic island or in a castle in Ireland. I wanted to help reduce that stress for the bride and groom and their families and make their magical day run as smoothly as possible,” says Judy Winton of McTavish Travel in Oakville, Ontario.
Since 1997, Judy has been planning weddings big and small, locally and globally. Shortly after switching gears in her career, she did her first wedding group in Costa Rica. She continues to grow and acquire new knowledge and insights from her industry to best understand the suitability of destinations in relation to various vow services. Ultimately, she strives to ensure the needs of her clients are met while maintaining an efficient planning process that minimizes stress for all parties.
When asked her favourite destination, Judy says, “We live in a big beautiful world – Europe in the summer is wonderful with all its history, and the Caribbean and South Pacific with their beaches in our winter is a great option. I’m very fond of Jamaica and Barbados because they have great weather, great beaches and they are very service oriented which is vital to the success of a destination wedding or vow renewal.”
For Judy, one of the most rewarding moments of being a specialist comes in listening to the bride and groom’s creative process when envisioning their special day. Most of all, however, transforming their beautiful experience into memories to last a lifetime is what reminds Judy why she chose to become a wedding planner in the first place.
