Full Description
After a career in project and event management I realised early on that my passion lay with weddings, in 2004 RandFWeddings was born; over the last 15+ years I have had the enormous privilege of planning a variety of weddings from the small and intimate to large, extravagant weddings and more lately embracing the trend for festival style weddings held over several days. It is infectious sharing in the joy of a couple’s wedding day and seeing everyone’s delight as they progress through the various stages of the day. Each one of our weddings is unique and planned using careful, meticulous attention to detail and personal, caring service. We are proud that we are still friends with many of our former clients and have since gone on to plan or share further life events with them. We are proud members of the NAWP – the National Association of Wedding Professionals; promoting professionalism and integrity within the UK Wedding industry. We are an official Rock My Wedding supplier. In addition, we support the amazing The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation – a charity that organises weddings for men and women in the UK living with life limiting conditions or terminal illnesses who long to marry their special partner in life. When not planning weddings I teach National Diploma level students entering the events industry and am a Wedding Awards Judge for the National Celebrants Awards as well as being a resident BBC Radio Wedding Expert and Wedding Planning Expert writer for the Magpie Wedding Blog When not working on weddings I can be found at home in our cottage in the Cambridgeshire countryside on the border with Bedfordshire and Huntingdonshire fussing over our two cats ‘Sprocket’ and ‘Flossie’. I can also be found enjoying hill walking and outside adventures.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Every wedding leaves me with special memories so it is really difficult to choose one - seeing all of my couples on one of the happiest days of their lives creating memories with their loved ones is what makes what we as a team do so special. That we are trusted to play a part of such an important day of their lives is humbling.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fun, Relaxed, Elegant, Stylish, Modern

What about your business are you most proud of?

Since humble beginnings in 2004 I have built a reputation as one of the UK's best wedding planners and an industry leading expert, I have provided professional talks, radio interviews, provide tutoring to diploma level students and am the wedding planning expert on the Magpie wedding blog along with being BBC Radio Cambs resident Wedding Expert and in 2018 I was asked to be the expert judge for the National Celebrants Awards, I am returning in 2019 to judge the National Celebrant Awards for the 2nd year running.

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

Be You...! sounds cheesy but its true, the most important people in any wedding are the couple and beyond the financial planning and logistics that typically cause couples some stress the biggest element of stress tends to come from family and friends with well meaning expectations. With our planning services we can alleviate most of these stresses leaving you to enjoy the the planning journey with us as it should be - FUN

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Many moments have broken a small happy emotional tear, however our favourite has to be one of our 2018 Groom's who took singing and guitar lessons, wrote a song, created a video and serenaded his new wife as a surprise just before their first dance - all kept a secret from every member of the wedding party and the guests until the moment it happened!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

First off we need to get to know each other, so we typically start with a no obligation consultation this can be face to face, Skype or even over the phone, following which we will establish your exact wedding planning needs and confirm pricing. Once you are happy to proceed we provide a full written contract for your peace of mind and then the fun of the planning journey starts, like Alice in Wonderland we aim to take you down the rabbit hole to a world of fun while we deal with all the nitty gritty boring but essential stuff.

What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?

We had a Groom who wanted to arrive at his ceremony riding on a white elephant and he wanted canapés served by Monkey's - we had to draw the line on this for heath & safety/food hygiene reasons but we found them an amazing venue which more than made up for his crazy idea in Aynhoe Park.

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

With over 15 years of experience, we know the devil is in the detail and trusted suppliers. We take care of all of the supplier communications using our trusted list of experts that we have worked with previously. On the rare occasion a problem arises it is our job to find the solution before you even know there was a problem.

What do you love most about your job?

I love taking my couples on a journey, find out about their ideal of a perfect wedding day and making that a reality.

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

There are so many moments - the anticipation as the bride is ready to enter the ceremony, the speeches, the moment just after the ceremony where you and your guests start to relax with a drink or two and of course when the party really begins and everyone lets their hair down.
