About us

Pawfect Occasions is a dog chaperone service specialising in weddings and events. Established in February 2019 and based in Preston, Lancashire, we have completed over 200 weddings with a variety of different dogs, at churches and by lakes and everywhere in-between. 

I pride myself on doing all the marketing, social media, branding etc by myself (might be a bit of a control freak). After many weddings at different venues around the North West, we have established amazing relationships with venues and suppliers alike, word of mouth is so important!

In 2021, Martin (my fiancé) came on board part time and regularly does weddings too! He is almost as dog mad as myself...

In 2022 we took another step towards being a completely eco-friendly business, after going paperless in 2020, we purchased our first Electric dog mobile. We have since gone electric with Martin's car too. We are constantly looking at making Pawfect Occasions more and more green in the next year.

In 2023 I entered The Wedding Industry Awards for the first time, after making it to the regional finals, I received the highly commended award for the special touches category! I've also featured on Wedding Valley on UKTV.


Meet The Owner

Hi! I'm Annabel, the face of Pawfect Occasions. I've always been a big believer in doing a job you want to get out of bed for and I found it!

I have worked with dogs on a professional basis for 15 years and before that was training our family pets from the age of 4. Working in a boarding kennels, rehoming dogs at a well known rescue in Cambridgeshire, and running a busy dog walking business, has left me with experience of dogs in all walks of life.

When I had my second daughter I decided to pass on my dog walking business to a friend and start afresh. I'd been asked a few times to take clients' dogs to their weddings, so I decided to give it a whirl as a dog chaperone on a full time basis.


Alongside the real life experience, I have a degree in animal welfare and behaviour and have been to many courses and conferences over the years that have set me up to help all manner of behavioural issues and breeds.

  • Dog first aid trained

  • BSc (Hhons) animal welfare and behaviour

  • Fully insured

  • Full, clean driver’s licencse ​


Courses completed:

  • IMDT career as a dog trainer

  • IMDT perfect puppy

  • IMDT canine body language

  • Kathy Sdao's behaviour conference
