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!
What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?
For a corporate client, we have held an event where the theme was 'futuristic disco'. It was exciting to be able to envision what our parties could be looking like in years to come!!
How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?
Our number one priority is to relieve our clients of any possible stress or pressure that planning a wedding can potentially bring. The couple can have as much or as little involvement throughout the process that they wish for, yet we will always ensure their part of the planning is what we would define as 'the fun stuff'! On the days leading up to the wedding and of course, the wedding day itself, the couple's only job is to make sure they utterly enjoy and savour their special day with surrounding family and friends.
What do you love most about your job?
We absolutely love the relationships we form with our clients, from the day we receive the enquiry, to years later where we have always kept in contact with our fantastic couples long after their wedding!
