To date, her company Wedding Gallery has successfully hosted over four hundred events and counting. The reviews from some of her clients are a testament to the quality of her work. Pauline’s journey started at the age of 14 when her mother’s passion for baking rubbed off on her. She would often spend hours in the kitchen, helping out her mother and learning the basics.
As she grew older, she continued to develop her skills by baking cakes for her sibling and friends. Later on, while waiting to start university, her boyfriend now hubby encouraged her to turn the hobby into a business. That was the beginning of her journey as a professional baker, and the rest is history. Today, she supplies cakes for weddings, birthdays and many other occasions.
Her parents instilled in her the importance of taking advantage of any opportunity to learn new skills. That is why, at the age of 15, she decided to join the decoration department at her church. It was during this time that she developed her passion for decoration. In 2014 she decided to do her wedding decor, and it came out so perfect that she was inspired to start an event decor company. Her wedding became her marketing tool; soon, more people were soliciting for her services and business started booming. Over the years she has since expanded to a full-fledged event planning company providing catering services, renting out wedding gowns and hiring out décor equipment and accessories.
