Hello! My name is Lauren, I am the owner, lead wedding planner and designer of Sinclair & Co. Design based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. As an Ottawa Wedding Planner, our boutique brand offers everything from full wedding planning, to design services, and floral design. Our mission at Sinclair & Co. Design is to ensure that your wedding day is cohesive, detail-oriented, and a true reflection of your love story. We take pride in offering a refined and elevated client experience, while simultaneously planning a unique celebration that will offer a luxury experience for your guests.
I am originally an East Coast girl from a small town in Nova Scotia. I had always dreamed of one day owning a business. My father has a construction company back home and I have always looked up to him and the amount of work it has taken him to build his business from the ground up. I just never knew where to begin. I studied Kinesiology at StFX University and completed my graduate degree in Sports Business Management here in Ottawa. I had played sports since I was a little girl and knew it was finally time for a change.
with love, lauren
I fell back to something I knew I was passionate about, creating magical celebrations for people to remember. I grew up always hosting parties and wanting to plan the next exciting event that happened amongst our friend group. I have always dreamt of my own wedding day, but who knew I would now have the amazing opportunity of being a part of so many beautiful weddings?! My dream has now become my reality and I couldn’t be more thankful. I absolutely love getting to see my couples faces when they first walk into their venue on their big day. It is the first time that they get to see the design and vision brought to life and it is extremely exciting! The entire wedding planning process is such a unique experience, we truly value this time with our couples and are so fortunate to have them turn into friends at the end of this process.
In the beginning, I began my business only offering wedding planning and design, but after many requests from our clients, we expanded our services to offer floral design. I am so thrilled, because I immediately fell in love with the art of floral design. Having the opportunity to arrange florals is such a relaxing, yet inspiring outlet. My design often stems from my passion for ethereal garden vibes, mixed with an abundance of delicate and whimsical textures.
When we aren’t in the thick of wedding season, I love to be relaxing at home, having a glass of wine with my girlfriends, or hopping on a plane to travel the world and create new memories. I love taking trips back home to see family and friends, and one of my favourite parts of being home is visiting our family cottage - one of the best places on earth to watch the sunset.
It is an extreme honour for our brand to be a part of a such a milestone event for you and your loved ones. Our team will wholeheartedly go above and beyond for you during this process. I am always just a quick text away when you need an opinion on anything from bridesmaids dresses to selecting your bridal jewellery. I love meeting at a coffee shop and sipping cappuccinos, while going over the little details of your big day. These moments ensure that each wedding is planned thoughtfully and executed efficiently. At Sinclair & Co. Design, my team and I are excited to learn more about your dream day and make your wedding day a memorable and luxurious experience!
