HELEN WARD
CO-FOUNDER & DIRECTOR

Helen is quite the event guru, having worked for some of the UK’s most exclusive hotel brands from Firmdale (that count the Soho Hotel, Charlotte Street Hotel and Ham Yard amongst their assets) to South Place Hotel and most recently Home Grown Hotels, owners of the critically acclaimed Lime Wood and THE PIG group. Naturally, Helen is the mastermind behind the format and planning of our events, from our own Bridal Bazaar to some of the most exclusive weddings and celebrations in London and the South.

Ten years ago, Helen began her career in a Soho based marketing and communications agency before moving in to the world of event management and production. Today, Helen and her team produce world class events, sourcing the best venues and suppliers; creating truly unique experiences. She's worked with the world's most luxurious fashion, beauty and creative brands and has an enviable client list.

Helen is New Forest based. When not in the office, you’ll find her hunting down the local ice cream parlour (serious chocolate addiction), attempting to then walk it off in the forest or rummaging through the local reclamation yard because ‘she will’ find the perfect treasure!

SARAH BUNTING
CO-FOUNDER & DIRECTOR 

When Sarah isn’t planning WPDN or our client’s marketing campaigns or styling and producing shoots, she is Global Head of Content at Kingfisher Plc.

Sarah cut her teeth in the fashion industry, notably as Editor in Chief of the online trend forecasting portal, MPDClick.com, which was later acquired by WGSN, after working her way up from a journalist and photographer travelling the world to report on catwalk shows. In 2009 Sarah created the popular style and travel blog Sarah-Leigh’s Style Files, which led to her position of International Contributing Editor at OliviaPalermo.com and Fashion Contributor at LoveMyDress.net. More recently Sarah headed up the content and creative studio at UK retailer B&Q, charged with developing their inaugural content marketing strategy. Today Sarah is Head of Content at Kingfisher, working internationally across their portfolio of home improvement retailers.

Sarah is possibly Instagram’s biggest fan and we often wonder if her mind actually looks like an aesthetically perfect grid…
