Welcome to Sure To Surprise You!

Event Planner, Content Creator and Writer based in the Lake District, Cumbria.

The Lake District fells and dales provide a glorious backdrop, not just for the keen walker but for the perfect event, the daily inspiration and the escapism that many people dream of AND I am lucky enough to call it home.

I'm Amy and an expert in planning, organising, writing, and motivation! It's like one of those meetings but my addiction involves a laptop, typing, research and a lot of spreadsheets. As long as the diet cokes are cold, the laptop is charged and there is ink in my pen and spare paper I'm happy.

I've been an event planner for years; even in my teens it was me who organised the parties, the school fundraisers, helped at parent teacher evenings, volunterred for everything and then took over editing the yearbook on the side just to keep busy. I like being involved, I like helping and I love it when a plan comes together!

Sure to Surprise You is just that. Organising, planning, motivation and writing in one place. To be completely honest it makes sense. Organising an event or wedding is made up of the following formula: bespoke research on the couple/client, a full and colourful spreadsheet of timings and instructions, planning the days structure and then completing the day with passion and with very happy clients and all tied up with helpful emails and suggestions whilst being at the end of the phone when needed. Writing and creating content has pretty much the same formula: bespoke research on the client and what they need, a full and colourful spreadsheet of timings, planning and writing the content, blog, website, e-book that is needed and then completing the job with passion and with very happy clients. It's a match made in heaven!

Did I mention I have an English degree from Aberdeen...well I do! I got to study under some amazing lecturers and also the opportunity to write with the fabulous Novelist Alan Spence as well as working for the Edinburgh International Book Festival which other than meeting incredible authors, working with like minded people and wearing a headset like Britney Spears was quite possibly the best summer job for an English student!

So enough about me let's see how I can help you.

In 2020 life changed.

In 2020 life changed. My life changed. I thought hard about what to do, what I wanted to do, what I've always wanted to do. To tell a story. Your story, my story, their story, a story about love, tourism, travel, hospitality, life, weddings and so much more. 2021 is now underway and now I get to offer so much more of what I really want to: to create! Create, write, plan, research and live!
