Full Service Wedding Planning and Coordination in the UK and internationally. Your Wedding journey, from concept to delivery.
Our most comprehensive offering, taking you on your Wedding journey, from conception to delivery, covering the UK including Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, London, Norfolk and and internationally.
After an initial free of charge, no obligation consultation we will work closely with you to plan every aspect of your exceptional wedding day.
You will find that your planner becomes your ‘best friend’ during the planning process and we are always available by phone, email, Skype or for face to face meetings as an advisor, friend and confidant.
Our Full Wedding Planning service includes matching suppliers and sourcing along with complete financial and logistics management through to full coordination on the day with personal support throughout. We will provide recommendations on the best suppliers for your wedding and undertake all contract negotiations (please note, some planners may take commission from suppliers adding to your costs, I have a strict ethical policy and do not accept commissions from suppliers). Working with you, we will create a detailed itinerary which covers not only the wedding day but also any set up and breakdown days, managing all supplier requirements and logistics. We are available to manage your guest list and RSVPs and also any ceremony rehearsals or dinners. Styling of your wedding forms part of the planning process and we work with you to achieve your ‘wedding design’ that is creative, inspirational and exceptional whilst remaining personal to yourselves. We will be onsite on set up days to manage suppliers and their set up and on the wedding day we are onsite before the first supplier to ensure that everything is ready in accordance with your wishes. We only leave once all of your guests have safely departed and your suppliers have cleared down and are on their way.
Our Partial Planning service can be commenced up to 12 weeks prior to your wedding day. Along with an audit of all existing contracts we will work with you to provide a detailed itinerary of your day (including any set up and break down days) and liaise with all of your suppliers to confirm delivery and set up arrangements including timings during set up, on the day itself and during breakdown.
We will be in regular contact with yourselves via your preferred method of communication (email, phone, Skype) and will be onsite during any set up days to oversee any supplier builds (ie tipis/marquees) and supplier deliveries. Our management of your wedding day starts in the early morning (before your first supplier arrives) and continues until the end of the party and all guests are safely on their way home.
Our partial planning service can be booked at any point of your planning journey but our services will not commence until 12 weeks before your wedding. If you are looking for help with your wedding prior to 12 weeks before your wedding day.
Our Wedding Day Management service can be commenced up to 2 weeks prior to your wedding day. Along with an audit of all contracts, we will contact each of your suppliers to confirm all details including timings of set up and breakdown. We will provide a comprehensive itinerary for your day and share this with yourselves and all of your suppliers – managing the suppliers and the delivery of their services on the day itself. This service is particularly useful if you are hosting a reception with various elements or suppliers as it ensures that all suppliers have a single point of contact in the run up to the wedding and the day itself. We are quickly able to assist and direct suppliers without them disturbing the all important bridal prep!
On the day itself, we will be with you before your suppliers arrive and typically stay until the end of the first dance however we can also stay until the end of the night when all guests are safely on their way home with prior agreement.
We are proud members of the NAWP – the National Association of Wedding Professionals; promoting professionalism and integrity within the UK Wedding industry. 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 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.
We offer Consultations at a destination of your choosing or initially we also offer telephone and Skype consultations
