Week of Wedding Planning
My wedding planning services are completely bespoke and tailored to suit your requirements and needs. Specialising in non traditional weddings, I love to work with couples who dream of an outdoor or DIY wedding; enabling them to have the most amazing day, just as they envisaged. From on the day coordination to full and partial planning, I can work with you to ease the stress and make the planning process a lot more fun! Planning a wedding takes on average 250 hours so my priority is to take the pressure away and offer my support and guidance wherever I can. Free consultations are always available to go over your wedding in more detail and to meet in person. Please do get in touch if you would like to find out more about the services I can offer xxx

What is your most memorable wedding?
So far it would have to be an outdoor festival themed wedding in a back garden. Copious marquees, hay bales, quirky actors and enough bell tents to fill a field! So many personal touches and lots of fun had by all!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Fun, Quirky, Non Traditional, Unique, Personal
What about your business are you most proud of?
I love that I get to work with couples who are truly passionate about having a personal wedding and creating a day that is truly unique and away from normality. I'm proud that I can offer lots of advice and ideas with over 10 years in the events industry.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Plan your wedding just the way you want it. Listen to others but ultimately it is your special day so plan it your way and have the most amazing time celebrating.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A wooden letter to symbolise the couples surname that guests signed on the day. This was made into a coffee table which meant it was something that they could look at forever in their home as a happy memory of their special day.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After liaising with each couple over email or phone, I arrange a free consultation in person (or Skype/phone if they live far away) to go over their requirements in more detail which enables me to come up with a bespoke package that suits their requirements and needs. If they are happy to proceed I then arrange a 30% deposit and then the planning will commence!
What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?
Waiters and waitresses dressed up as grannies was definitely a new one for me but such a fab idea. The guests loved it!
How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?
Planning a wedding is time consuming and overwhelming. When working with couples I reassure them that all of the communication with suppliers is taken care of so that they don't have to worry about suppliers not turning up on time etc. I offer my expert advice and ensure that a full schedule is produced prior to the wedding so that everyone is singing from the same page. My priority is to not only support you but be a friend and offer advice throughout the planning process.
What do you love most about your job?
I love that each and every wedding I work on is completely different from the last. Unique weddings are so much fun and it gives me great pleasure in helping those couples achieve their dream wedding.
What is your favourite moment at a wedding?
The speeches are always good fun but the evening reception has to be my favourite part. Seeing the bride and groom and all their guests having the best time is why I love doing what I do!
