| How it started... |

Welcome to Fox and Hound Events first blog!!

Well, where do I start… 


My name is Jaime. Head Stylist, Director and lover of all things vintage.

Here are three random facts about me

1.     I have a twin! (we are mirror image identical)

2.     I own way too many tea cups

3.     I love vintage clothing, but don’t wear it a lot.

I often get asked how I got into this line of work.

It almost always begins with... 'oh you’re an event stylist.. *insert confused face here* so, what exactly do you do?'

So, let me tell you!

It all started when I was about 14, I fell into a casual job selling bridal veils and jewellery at local wedding expos and markets. I was hooked, but what girl wouldn't be! Surrounded by a sea of beautiful gems and crystals, layers of tulle and all the wedding bits and pieces you could dream of. 

I thought all the planning, the crazy backstage antics for the runway shows and the inventory lists were all part of the gig, never in a hundred years did it actually occur to me that this could be a full time job…and for quite a long time it didn't.

Over the years I planned many events; school formals, 18th and 21st Birthdays, other milestone birthdays and weddings. I became quite well known for having killer themed Birthdays and Halloween parties that were, quite literally, to die for.

However, my dream to become a wedding photographer always overtook the need to plan. I completed my first degree- a Bachelor of Visual Arts majoring in Media Arts (Photography and Digital Media). Throughout this degree I interned with some amazing photographers and saw a lot of different weddings and functions. My interest in events was stirring.

I still dabbled in planning events for friends and family. Every time there was a birthday, wedding or event I was asked my opinion or where to get this or that. That is when I realised that photography was never going to be a full time thing for me. I still love taking photos, but now it’s a hobby I get to enjoy in my spare time (whatever that is!)

I then enrolled in my second and third degrees; a Bachelor of Event Management and a Bachelor of Business Management. This is where I started planning events pretty much full time. I interned and worked throughout my degrees and learnt how to run and organise with the best in the business! I am fortunate that I am able to collaborate with many of the businesses that I interned and then worked for. 

My greatest (and most favourite) event which I have styled to date (even though I am a bit biased) was my wedding!! It was a surprise to the guests (under the façade of our engagement party), and was planned in less than 3 months - I promise to do a full blog post in the future – 

I look forward to sharing this crazy adventure with you all and can't wait for you to see the amazing events we work on!

Stay tuned for the next exciting adventure!
