Jessica Murphy – Circle of Love Director

Welcome to Circle of Love Weddings where, ‘We love what we do & Do what we love.’

I feel so lucky to have started from working for free to gaining casual employment in the wedding industry to buying my first business at the age of 23. Now nearly 10 years into trying to gain employment in the industry I loved so much, I am ‘The Director’ of Circle of Love Pty Ltd. Australia’s fastest growing wedding franchise with franchisees currently in Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Sydney, Melbourne & even Perth.

But it was never easy, I went from applying for positions as a wedding coordinator for 4 years & getting knocked back over & over again, whilst completing my Diploma in Hotel Management at Palazzo Versace to studying at University for 3 years & completely my Bachelor of Convention & Events management & still I could not get into the industry I loved so much. Even with over 4 years of hospitality experience, work experience in nearly every department at Palazzo Versace I could not catch a break till I finally gained casual employment with All About Venues & that’s where it all began. A few hours a week of employment to buying my first business, ‘Circle of Love – Gold Coast,’ to now owning the entire franchise system.

If you have a dream pursue it, no matter what it takes! If you choose weddings you can skip all those steps I took & get trained by myself in the industry I love so much & will do anything for, to see not only my couples happy but also my franchisees successful & happy in the most rewarding industry you could imagine. You don’t need a degree, you do not need experience in weddings or business, you don’t need to waste years doing courses, spending pointless dollars & trying to gain experience, ALL YOU NEED IS PASSION for the wedding industry, service & drive to succeed. Have all those qualities then I want to hear from you, sit down with you & discuss how I can help you on the road to your dreams & earning from day one with Circle of Love Weddings.

Circle of Love Weddings – Director Story – Jessica Murphy

Jessica Murphy has had a passion for weddings since watching the “Wedding Planner” with JLO when she was only 15 years old. She said to her brother, I want to be her one day, a famous international wedding planner. He laughed but what he didn’t realise at the time is that she was serious.

From a very young age Jessica worked towards her dream and embraced every opportunity.  From planning high school birthday surprises to planning her best friends 18th, 21st birthdays she soon grew to planning her friends engagement parties to now weddings. After years of hospitality experience she enrolled into a Bachelor of Convention and Events Management, where she took on work experience to gain knowledge in the wedding industry. In 2008, while still at university, she started coordinating weddings on the Gold Coast on a work experience basis. Not long after completing her degree she gained the opportunity to work casually for All About Venues. Although it was only a few hours a week this was her dream & she would do anything to be in the industry. When Annette Corrie the company director of All About Venues decided to split the wedding company & form Circle of Love franchises, Jessica decided to pursue her dream & invest in Circle of Love Gold Coast franchise. After owning Circle of Love Weddings Gold Coast for nearly 3 years & doing up to 150 weddings a year, the opportunity arised to own the Circle of Love Company. Jessica is now the company director of Circle of Love Pty Ltd & rapidly growing the company Australia wide with 4 new franchises within the first couple months, her dream of becoming a world renowned Wedding Planner is not so much of a joke to her Brother these days.

Jessica’s wedding & event planning has always been done with her heart and soul; combining her love for planning with her passion for providing 5 star service. She looks forward to helping you prepare and plan for your own magical and memorable day!
