What is your most memorable wedding?
My very first wedding i supplied for. That amazing feeling of the venue being unveiled to the bridal couple is nerve racking but exciting too. When you see their reactions it makes all the planning and preparation so worth while because you then know you have achieved your couples perfect surroundings for their most amazing day. I got on so well with my bride that she has now become one of my closest friends. This year we celebrated both our 40th & 50th birthdays with a trip to London with all our friends.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Enjoy the process, the creating, the choices and the organising. Take a step back from stressing that there is too much to do . Plan everything out in time lines on a to do list. Stick within your budget. Work out what is important to buy for the wedding and anything extra is a bonus. Most of all always take time out on your wedding day and pop off for 5 minutes somewhere and process the last few hours you have had and take a mental timeline of your day . That way it will not become a blur and you will remember key points of your special day .

Describe your typical process with a couple.
We will start off with emails & phone calls initially but then arrange for an appointment to meet up at your venue or a mutual location to discuss everything in more detail. We will chat about budgets, venue, how much input you require, style and colours and all your detailed vision you have in mind for your event. I will go away and plan a quote with what we had discussed and set out within our meeting.
If you decide to book my services after receiving your quote and relevant paperwork an appointment will be arranged where we will go through some paperwork, sign contracts and a booking fee will need to be paid at time of booking. The remaining, balance paid in instalments with the last remaining balance paid 1 month before your event date along with your damage deposit.
Everything is always confirmed by emails so everyone has written confirmation of everything discussed during our process of planning your event. The planning and creating will start immediately after your booking confirmation. I will always remain in contact with you and I am always at the end of the phone during your whole process with me.
