Having been a destination wedding bride, Pamela Walker can relate to the stress and anxiety involved with planning a wedding in a far off locale - it can be daunting heading into the unknown!
We recently sat down with for an interview with Pamela, here's what she had to say:
What made you want to become a Destination Wedding Consultant? A long time ago I attended a friend’s destination wedding in Jamaica. Her travel agent at the time had never booked a destination wedding before, and did not have any knowledge to advise her in any way. When we returned from her wedding, I decided to become a travel agent with the intention of specializing in Destination Weddings.
What do you love most about your career? My favourite part of my career is hearing the stories, seeing the photos, and knowing that I had just a small part in the happiest day of many couples’ lives. That is, in my experience, so priceless and rewarding.
How many weddings have you facilitated? Oh my…it would have to have been close to 400 over the past 15 years!!
How many years have you been in the industry? I have been a professional travel agent for 17 years, and have dedicated myself solely to Destination Weddings for the last 5 of those years.
What do you love most about Karisma Hotels and Resorts? What’s not to love? I was married myself at a Karisma Resort a few years ago and it was the best day of my life and best wedding I have ever been to! I was a self-confessed bridezilla and I was completely amazed at how well the wedding team at the resort took care of our entire group, and how organized and efficient they were on our wedding day. This is very important to any bride! Also, they have either a DIY wedding package for the bride who wants to design her own wedding day from scratch, and the new designer Memorable Moments wedding collections. There is something for every bride & budget.
Pamela Walker's objective is to provide wedding clients with the same knowledge, confidence, and excitement that she had planning her own dream day in Mexico. Her first-hand experience as a destination bride is a valuable resource and her purpose is to provide you with the peace of mind that your destination wedding dreams will become the reality you dream them to be.
