Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Akilah
Hello beautiful Brides to Be, Thank you for visiting my page, I hope you choose to enquire. I am sure we will build a friendship aswell. I am a new mum and wife and love planning events from small intimate birthday dinners to large scale weddings. I make the approach very personal as I was once a bride myself and found myself in interesting conversations with planners that needed to hit a minimum spend, rather than what they could do for me. Contact me today and see what I can do for you.

I just want to say an amazing thank you to Akilah
I just want to say an amazing thank you to Akilah, for really everything you have done on our big day. Gavin and I felt so relaxed and didn't even think about what was happening behind the scenes on the day, as everything was seamless with your on the day management. From the moment you stepped in to help tie together loose ends, from booking new vendors for us (florist, hair & mua) to creating and posting our invites, we knew it was going to be a beautiful day. You created a plan and liaised with our venue coordinator and church from 1 week before you had everything under control and out of our arms. You were so assertive but super approachable if I had anything I needed you to do - you even created our wedding program and put together our favours whilst I was busy at work. All I had to do was get them printed and put together. Thank you so much. If you weren't on our case, I wouldn't have achieved the day I wished for.

My friends and family loved her presence
Akilah was more than helpful with the planning of the wedding. Communication was never an issue and she was always available. She came to the venue, helped discuss food and travel arrangements and nothing was ever too tedious! We met up several times to go over things and we were always in control- the wedding still was the way we wanted it with Akilah’s touch. The days coming to the wedding were stress free as Akilah handled the majority of things. Her level of professionalism was exceptional! My friends and family loved her presence and she became more of a friend than just an events planner. Akilah was truly a pleasure to have around and I will definitely be using her services again in the near future! Lots of love, The Manful’s ❤️

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

My own. It was the first I planned and a rather large one too. It came with tumbles and DIY and a lot of emails. I just fell in love with every hurdle and problem solved that friends and family were just so bewildered where it all came from. Planning has become a wonderful experience for me and I cannot wait to make your big day as memorable as mine was to me.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Always plan for yourself and the love you have for each other and the rest will follow.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We will start with an initial meeting where I will come to you with my husband and we will discuss all the requirements and wishes you and your partner hope for. We will then start sourcing suppliers so you can make up your own mind for who you wish to choose (and not me force my ideas or connected suppliers on you). I can offer further planning help or any hurdles (I'm ya gal). I will meet up with you 1 month and then 1 week before the wedding to get final plans and order of the day. I will take charge of all contacts within 1 month to the big day contacting venue and suppliers and releasing any contact from you. I will be you maid of honours, maid of honour. I will be there on the day (if you like) and help the venue co-ordinator (After all, I will know your day the way you do if not more). I will tie up loose ends the day of and the day after your wedding. I can offer further services to help with any deposits or items needing to be returned whilst you are enjoying your first fortnight as the latest Mr & Mrs.

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

Choreographing a flashmob and just seeing all the smiles on the bridal parties faces.
