All my services start with a free no obligation consultation. This will enable us to get to know each other and talk through your ideas. I will then create a bespoke proposal which will detail the service you require and a quotation. As every wedding is bespoke to each couple my services will be tailored to suit each couple’s individual requirements.
Why use a Planner?
Weddings are one of the most expensive single occasions that you will spend your money on. A planner takes the stress out of managing your budget, ruling with their head not their heart!
Time is also a major factor and not everyone understands just how much time they will need to plan a wedding. With full time work, a family and a busy social life, when will you find the time to sit down and start planning? The stress that this can cause in the lead up to the wedding can take all of the pleasure and enjoyment out of your day. Having a planner is like having your own PA who can make the calls, attend meetings and liaise with the bridal party and guests.
Your wedding should be one of the happiest days of your lives, one which you can look back on with great memories. However, if you find working to deadlines a nightmare, managing lists and RSVP’s tiresome, sticking to schedules and chasing up suppliers a chore, a wedding planner can take away these pressures. Weddings can be a stressful time for your family too, a planner can act as mediator ensuring your wedding day is the one you have always dreamed about.
The most comprehensive service which covers all aspects of organising your special day. From the initial planning stages of finding the perfect venue, suppliers, managing your budget- the list goes on. I will be there to offer the support, advice and guidance you require on this very special occasion. This package is designed for couples who would like all the expertise of a wedding planner to ensure their day is run without a hitch and done exactly the way they want it, without the associated stress and time constraints created by doing it themselves.
The partial planning service is designed for couples who have already planned most of their wedding themselves and just want to hand over the reins prior to the big day so they have time to relax and prepare for the wedding.
I will liaise with all suppliers and confirm your contractual agreements, finalise arrangements and timings and ensure there are open lines of communication. I will chase up outstanding RSVP’s, accommodation and dietary requirements with your guests and liaise with all the important members of your bridal party. This service also includes on the day co-ordination.
I will work with the venue and the suppliers, oversee the running of the day and make sure everything goes as planned, allowing you, your family and friends to relax and enjoy this special occasion.
We would have a handover meeting approximately six to eight weeks prior to the wedding for you to go through your plans and requirements in detail. We will then have a follow up meeting 7–14 days prior to the wedding to finalise the agenda and timings. We will confirm all your supplier schedules and arrangements on the days before the wedding. On the day, I will take care of all the last minute preparations, assist with setting up the venue with the suppliers, liaise with the bridal party, supervise your agenda and stay in attendance until your first dance.
Following an initial meeting and to agree your brief and budget, I will research up to five venues on your behalf and provide you with a detailed report about each. I will accompany you to your three preferred venues until you are happy that we have found the perfect place. I will then liaise with the venue to secure the booking and arrange for the contract to be sent to you in accordance with your requirements.
From photographers to bespoke stationery, vintage tableware to firework displays, I will research suppliers who meet with your brief and budget. I will negotiate the best prices and, as I am independent, I can pass any discounts I secure onto you saving you money at every opportunity. I only use trusted suppliers and where possible I try to work with local business. I will present you with a range of options for each supplier type and am happy to accompany you to appointments if needed. I will prepare a report of up to three suppliers in each category for you to choose from.
