I am Kirsty, the face behind the creation of Above & Beyond Event Hire Ltd.
I wanted to provide wedding decor for everyone regardless of their budget and when a couple of friends told me to use my creative talents and go back into photography I thought what else could I do that is a bit more hands on.
When I put my ideas that I had been sitting on for a few months to my other half Dan he fully supported them, made my sweet cart and Above & Beyond was born.
I am a mum who has quite a collection of skills. I qualified as a nail technician in 2004 and beauty therapist in 2009 but still wanted to challenge myself so I became one half of a singing duo travelling Devon and performing in pubs and clubs. When I had my son I got into photography and worked at Torbay Hospital photographing newborn babies but I wanted a career that I would love doing day in day out and one that needed to fit around my son so I decided to act on what started out as just a hobby helping friends plan their special occasions. That hobby has developed into one of the most rewarding jobs I could ever imagine doing. I'm proud of the business that I’ve created, and relish the opportunity to continue offering my rental services to customers in the future.
Here are some photos of my family and friends that will hopefully help you get to know me without words.
