Thanks for everything!
Ollie and I would like to say a huge thanks to Sam and her lovely sister for their on-the-day help with our wedding. We had a festival style wedding, with quite a relaxed vibe, however, whilst our guests were relaxing and lapping up our free bar, Sam and her sister were working super hard behind the scenes to make sure all was running smoothly so that all of the bridal party could enjoy the day without any worry. We'd all been working very hard in the run-up to the weekend, so the fact we could let our hair down on the day and night was such a relief. Any random task, Sam was happy to help - from first-dance confetti cannon blasting to beer-holding during photos, plus everything she helped with in the evening (I'm not too sure what that was because I wasn't made aware of any issues, nor was I needed for anything - and that's all I could ask for really!).x

Absolute wedding saviour
Sam is absolutely incredible. I met her just 24 hours before my friend’s wedding, which nearly had to be cancelled due to extreme weather conditions. Sam essentially replanned and organised a whole new wedding in about 8 hours. The end result was still absolutely in keeping with the bride and groom’s vision, but Sam took on all the responsibility and rallied her excellent network of local vendors and contacts to ensure the day went ahead. I cannot stress enough how great she is and if you are getting married in the area, she is an absolutely invaluable resource and wonderful human.

Sent from heaven to make your life easier
I had the absolute pleasure of shooting a wedding Sam had helped plan. Due to storm damage the wedding venue and plan for the day was changed the day before the wedding! Sam seemed to just take this in her stride, was a calming influence throughout the whole process and on the day too. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend that a) you get a planner involved with your wedding and b) not just any planner, you use Sam!! She’s the best.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Keep everything relaxed with constant communication.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

A drink at the pub or a coffee shop with a casual chat to talk about what the couple are looking to achieve for their wedding. The more I can get to know people, the easier it is to get the feel of what they'd like.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Relaxed, Organised, Honest, Realistic, Practical

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

I couldn't pick just one. I LOVE every single wedding and the lovely couples, parents and friends I get to meet and spend time with. And yes, I still cry at pretty much every ceremony or during the speeches!

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

There are so many things but it's so nice when friends and family have been involved with making the cake or designing the invitations etc.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

The wonderful people we get to meet!

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

Having Oompah Loompahs to dance with the guests after the first dance!

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

Make a budget before anything else. Then make a 'must-have' list and a 'would-be-nice-to-have' list. This will help you prioritise and keep on track.
