Our favourite personal touch was during a blessing, when a couple and their two daughters created a really beautiful hand print canvas, to always remember that moment.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We start by getting to know the couple as much as we can - what they are looking for, what they like, what they don't like, and everything in between. Everything we plan is completely bespoke and personal to each couple, and therefore it is essential we know exactly what the couple are after from the offset. After that, we take the couple to visit their chosen venue, which is where the excitement starts to build! It is then planning planning planning, where the couple can ensure we will provide as much or as little communication with the pernickety details as they would like. When the day itself arrives, everything is completely taken care of - there is no point whatsoever where the couple will have to worry about the smooth runnings of the day - that's our job!
