Pippa Girling – Owner & Certified Wedding Planner

Pippa Girling is the owner and lead coordinator of Planned by Pippa. Pippa’s passion for wedding planning began in 2015 after graduating from Durham College with a diploma in Special Events Planning. Following her graduation, she worked for two wedding venues in Durham, honing her skills and gaining valuable experience on their wedding planning teams.
