Week of Wedding Planning
Every couple is different so every wedding should be different. When guests arrive, they should know straight away it's your wedding and not 'just another one'. I work with you, leaving you in full control but giving back your time and keeping you stress-free. A few popular services are listed here, but check out my website for full details on these and all other services. No two weddings are the same so until we have spoken I cannot provide an accurate fee. For partial and full planning, I can give a guide to what the cost may be, but a consultation is required to understand your requirements before a proposal is produced. There is no 'one package fits all'. - Partial Planning. Perfect for when you have started your planning but you haven't the time to commit, you don't know what to do next or just want someone to come finish it off. This will be tailored around what you have left to do. Minimum fee applies - £2,000 (works out on average around 8%-10% of your overall wedding budget). - Full Planning. Everything you need for your wedding. Details are agreed in an initial non-obligation consultation. It is impossible to provide a cost without the consultation as every wedding is different and everyone requires different elements. Minimum fee applies - £4,000 (works out on average around 10%-15% of your overall wedding budget). - Inspirations Sessions. Set at £200 for two hours, these sessions are available for you to discuss anything you wish in relation to your wedding. - Extended Wedding Day Coordination. You have spent hours planning your perfect day, missed some social nights and sleep. This service gives you peace of mind on the day and the six weeks before! It gives you the chance to have an amazing, relaxing wedding day, enjoying every second, without the stress. This is your hard work on display - Be proud and let it shine. Minimum cost £1,000 (average is £1,500). You can book inspiration sessions, consultations and quick chats on my website.
Personal Message from the Manager

Congratulations on your engagement. Planning for your wedding is exciting and should be stress-free. Remember to leave at least one day a week completely wedding free - No mention of the W word. Instead, spend the day with your special someone, doing something you both love.

Location & Contact Details
What is your most memorable wedding?
A DIY marquee wedding. An amazing amount of love and care went into the day and it showed. All the flowers were grown by the mother of the bride in her beautiful garden.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Personalised, romantic, inspirational, beautiful, considerate
What about your business are you most proud of?
Being able to offer clients exactly what they want. I have no restrictions around what I will or will not do so I really can offer a personalised service to every client.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Remember it is your wedding. There should be things throughout the whole day that remind you of each other and why you are celebrating your love.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Separate room at the evening reception for showing video messages recorded from the wedding guests and people not able to attend. Nice place for the bride and groom to go and relax for a few minutes.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I meet with the couple to be (preferably face to face) to discuss their requirements and where they need help. As all my services are tailored, this is the most important part. Without this I could not give you a personalised service. After the consultation you are provided with a non-obligation proposal, detailing what we discussed. The proposal is valid for 14 days giving you time to think about it and decide what's right for you. If you decide to go ahead, you sign and return the contract (with the deposit) and we will work together, making your dream day.
What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?
Living moss on the tables for the Wedding breakfast - along with real, wriggly worms.
How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?
By listening careful to each and every client, understanding their worries/concerns and providing a professional yet friendly service at all times
What do you love most about your job?
Every couple is different meaning every wedding is different. It is amazing helping people live their dream for the day.
What is your favourite moment at a wedding?
The moment the couple become one after declaring their love for each other in the company of their family and friends.
