What is your most memorable wedding?
When the Bride's father sees her for the first time, we get so emotional!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
We ran a wedding for a couple that absolutely love curry! Not only did they have big platters of sharing curries and poppadoms down the centre of their banqueting tables, they also used chilli peppers and chilli plants in all of their decor! It was HOT.
What about your business are you most proud of?
We make sure that all bases are covered in the run up to the wedding. We have back-up plans for our back-up plans! We also make sure we are introduced to a member of the wedding party that we can come to if the need arises, so not to bother the happy couple on their special day!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
The fact that we don't follow the crowd, we embrace anything and everything that our clients throw at us!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Microsoft Excel is your new best friend! Use those spreadsheets to your heart's content and don't forget colour coding!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We ran an alternative woodland wedding where they had a Shamanic blessing instead of a traditional civil ceremony. It was absolutely wicked! The Bride & Groom stood beneath a beautiful old oak tree and were wrapped in blankets. The Shaman then blessed them with burning sage. Awesome!
What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?
Unique, quirky, alternative, vintage, different.
How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?
The first step is to find out how much help each couple needs. They may just be looking for some advice and tips on how to get started, but more often than not they need help the whole way through. The next step is our favourite part, finding out what kind of vibe they are going for and what ideas they have already had!
What do you love most about your job?
We were asked to plan a 'Game of Thrones' themed wedding where the Bride & Groom had a blessing standing on a small boat just off the shore whilst the guests (all dressed in costume) watched from the beach. It was mental but amazing!
What is your favourite moment at a wedding?
Have an 'on the day coordinator', every single client we have spoken to that did not opt for on the day help regretted it! It's the most magical day of your life, let somebody else do the running around and just have a wicked day!
