What is your most memorable wedding?
We recently turned around a wedding (and honeymoon!) from scratch in just 3.5 months. It was a whirlwind few months but everything came together perfectly and it was such a fun day!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Stylish, Sophisticated, Contemporary, Understated Elegance, Laidback Luxury
What about your business are you most proud of?
We like to be a little bit different. When planning our own wedding, I became sick of all the 'fluff' so vowed to ensure my own business was as simple and straight-talking as possible. We always go above and beyond for our couples, and love to make sure the process is as fun as the day itself. Oh, and we are also the only UK planner to offer both wedding AND honeymoon planning, meaning we can ensure it's all covered!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Make sure you enjoy the engagement phase itself, and don't let planning take over - set specific aside time to plan and discuss together, and crack open a bottle of bubbly. Your wedding is about both of you as a couple so make sure you are both contributing and having input on how you envisage your day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I like it when couples bring in elements that really reflect them. Or, adding personal touches such as handwritten letters to the guests about a special memory they have together to show their appreciation.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
First of all, we start with a kick-off call, so that we can discuss your requirements. We then produce a quote based on which of our services best suits your needs, and then, once you're happy, let's meet up for a drink or two and start discussing ideas!
How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?
We love the little details! We take care of all the boring bits (filling in spreadsheets and budget trackers galore!) so that you can focus on and enjoy that little thing called 'life'. Our couples work long hours and are often already trying to juggle 101 different commitments, so by us being able to take care of the wedding planning, you can rest safe in the knowledge that everything is under control.
What do you love most about your job?
Focus on what YOU want. Don't get pressured by friends, family or social media. Take a step back and focus on YOUR priorities, and why you're getting married in the first place.
What is your favourite moment at a wedding?
Those huge 'just married' smiles right after the ceremony, with the couple surrounded by all their friends and family. You can just feel all the love in the room and it's incredibly special to be a part of. I also love helping a bride settle her nerves as she finishes getting ready. It's so rewarding and I'm always so grateful to be part of such a special day.
