FAQ
(10)
What is your most memorable wedding?
Aside from my own, the one that springs to mind was only a few weeks ago. The brief was retro/60s/vintage and the bride's colour scheme was orange, yellow, brown and powder blue! We added bright orange and yellow flowers, coloured lanterns, lots of vintage and antique props, cool orange 60's armchairs in the bar, and lots of cushions and throws dotted everywhere that were handmade by the bride. It was a very fun wedding! Pics on my Insta :)
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Clean, polished, contemporary, unique, (but also) fun.
What about your business are you most proud of?
My award winning wedding blog. My blog is my brand, I used it as a platform for my business and I use it to show my clients my ideas and personality. It's so personal to me and it's where my business began! It's my baby!
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Be yourself, be true to yourself, and personalise personalise personalise. Also, don't be afraid to ask for help, whether that be from a friend or family member, or a wedding tasker (me) or planner. It's the most magical time so make sure you ask for help when you need it so you can actually enjoy it!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
At my own wedding, we had photos of us both as kids on the toilet doors and I mocked up signs saying 'Little Boys Room' and 'Little Girls Room'... A client then asked me to replicate that with her mum’s dogs who she'd dressed up as a bride and groom!! I'm also always wowed with client’s ideas for table plans, I did a vine one once for a wine themed wedding, but I was also at a wedding recently where the table plan was all of the couple's favourite gins! Yes GINS! It was also hand drawn by the groom’s sister - it was awesome.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I offer pick and mix wedding planning and my services are completely bespoke, so it varies depending on what the client wants/needs. Typically, they'll get in touch, then we'll either meet up in person for a drink or do a quick hello on skype. Then I'll send them a proposal, and if they're happy I'll send them a contract and an invoice for a 10% deposit. Everything is taken a step at a time and we tweak the process until they are happy - and I’m with them every step of the way.
What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?
I am a wedding tasker - a more flexible pick and mix wedding planner - so nothing is off bounds! I've been asked everything from sourcing a specific pair of socks for the groom to taking a granny home!
How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?
Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. Prepare prepare prepare. Solid, constant, fluid communication is also key.
What do you love most about your job?
Ultimately, it’s all about making people happy – and I love that. In the words of Anne Hathaway, “Weddings are important because they celebrate life and possibility.”
What is your favourite moment at a wedding?
Seeing the happiness (and relief!) on the new married couples face when they are announced as married, and then cheering them on down the aisle.
