Nottingham tipi wedding
… one amazing wedding planner! … Linzi is just outstanding in her organisational ability and calm, friendly approach to everything she does. I can’t thank her enough for all that she did in such a short space of time to help us organise the most fantastically memorable and happy wedding day. We were so lucky to find her!”

Stoke Rochford Hall wedding
Linzi [gave] me her invaluable help, advice and reassurance on everything from table decorations to seating plans to chasing suppliers for me. I genuinely felt like I had a friend helping me, she was that caring, kind, supportive and most of all had solutions to every problem! My only regret was not finding out about her sooner, as she would have made the whole wedding planning process SO MUCH EASIER!!! Linzi, I just want to express my very sincere gratitude for all your help, your time and your effort which went way above and beyond all my expectations. You were a godsend and also an absolutely lovely person to boot”

Birmingham Marquee wedding
Would totally recommend having [Linzi] as a wedding planner/coordinator on the day” “It just made us feel so at ease knowing that we didn’t have to think about anything except for enjoying ourselves. Linzi was really professional, super organised and very good at forward planning and spotting potential loopholes in some of our plans”

Stunning marquee wedding
Can’t thank Linzi and Seb enough. Our marquee looked amazing and we had so many positive comments. Linzi went out of her way to offer help and support. I couldn’t have done it without her. She took a lot of pressure off me at a time I needed it. Thanks again for help making our day so wonderful

Donna and Mark's wedding
Thank you Linzi for all your help on our wedding day, you were so friendly and professional from first contact until the day itself that I felt fully relaxed knowing you were with us on the biggest day of our life. As you know I like to be on top of things and so my main worry for the day was that while I was getting ready things might not be going right at the venue and I wouldn’t be there to spot them, your presence on the morning just took this worry and stress away. You were there with a kind word and a smile at all the right moments and I cannot thank you enough for that! Everything throughout the day ran so smoothly with you directing people into the right places – and with all entertainments and caterers I had hired in I know this was a big ask! Perfect, absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for all you have done for myself and Mark.
