- Your wedding day is one of the most exciting days of your life and its needs to be just perfect! Planning a wedding is a huge project. Juggling work and family commitments can make the preparation a trial rather than a pleasure. SJW Events will take away the pressure and worry ensuring everything is brought together, allowing you to relax and positively look forward to your special day. Wouldn’t it be wonderful for you and your partner if you didn’t have to attend all the local South East wedding fairs to find Sussex venues or Surrey’s wedding suppliers or find a Kent wedding cake supplier SJW Events will do everything for you! With my experience, I will ensure that your special day is well researched, coordinated and goes off without a glitch. You will have total peace of mind knowing that you have support every step of the way. People tend to think having a wedding planner is a luxury and must be expensive; this is not the case. An informal meeting over a cup of tea to discuss your initial thoughts, ideas and must haves is the first step. We can discuss a time frame, budget and list of the essentials after which you can decide whether you require our whole package or support with specific elements of your big day. All our prices are bespoke tailored to your special day. Things you need to think about include: Stationery & Invitation design RSVP Attendance on the day Venue searching Venue & table decorations Bridal attire Groom attire Hair, Make up & Jewellery Evening Entertainment Wedding Day plan Vows Accommodation for you & your guests Catering – Wedding breakfast to evening food buffet Cake Flowers Photographer Bar Wedding favours Speeches Travel arrangements Hen & Stag Parties I have worked with clients with a wide range of budgets from intimate elopements with a handful of guests to hundreds plus wedding celebrations. I will help guide you throughout the whole planning process, you we ensure we get the most from your budget, whatever the size.

Location & Contact Details
What is your most memorable wedding?
A client was a huge fan of penguins and wanted their day based around a theme of penguins in the Ashdown forest. I sourced penguins from all across the world to create a black and white penguin themed wedding with a huge amount of detail in a vintage styled venue. I still to this day have penguins appearing!

When contacting SJW Events I would ideally like to either meet for a chat or talk over the phone about your special day. We would discuss your ideas, thoughts and vision for the day followed by guests, themes, location and any other ideas. I would then put together a plan and quote for you both. On booking I would meet with you at your venue and create a detailed picture of the day and along with suppliers. I would work with you over the coming months to create the prefect day with regular meetings.
