A former midwife has turned her hobby of ten years into a unique new business in Sheaft Street, Daventry.

Janet Haynes, 47, opened doors at the Wedding Fayre Boutique for the first time last week offering a wedding planning and personalised wedding fayre service .

In the store Mrs Haynes sells and exhibits wedding jewellery, decorations, accessories, favours and dresses from local designers and traders meaning she offers a large range of items. Her focus, however, lies is the wedding planner side of the business.

She said: “After working as senior midwife at Northampton General I have built up great people skills and know how to be a part of the special moments in people’s lives.

“Making people feel comfortable and relaxed is where I excel and that’s what can bring to wedding planning.”

Mrs Haynes intends to tailer the service offering anything from RSVP management and workshops to teach people how to organise a wedding to budget to working with a couple the whole way through. She also offers an ‘on the day’ service to allow couples total control of their planning up until the day when they can hand the responsibility over to a professional.

She said: “A lot of people don’t want everything taken away from them, they want to organise it themselves so I can support them with that.”

The store opens Monday to Saturday 10am until 5pm and Sunday 11am until 3pm. Appointments can be made outside of those hours by contacting 07980 987341, 01327 703456 or emailing
