Congratulations! I hope it was incredibly romantic, but now it’s time to plan how you’re going to share your perfect day with your loved ones.
It’s such an exciting time for you both, a new chapter of your life and you want to get stuck into the wedding planning BUT you don’t where to start – yikes!
Does this sound like you?
Don’t worry it’s quite normal and this is where a wedding planner can help you! This is where I come in!
So, how can I help you?
I offer 3 main packages which are completely flexible and tailored to suit your requirements exactly. I always offer a complimentary consultation, it’s really informal and can be done over the phone, via Zoom or in person (once Covid decides to let us out, out). The consultation is a great way for us to get to know each other.
I find out what you love and what you don’t, what your main priorities are for the big day, your style, your vibe and also what you’ll need from me. I’m very honest and I wouldn’t upsell a package to make extra money – it genuinely would be what you need from me.
Full Wedding Planning
Full wedding planning covers everything you could possibly need when it comes to planning your dream day.
I’ll take your ideas and visions and transform them into a reality. Ideally you would be looking at a 2 to 3 year timeline for the full planning as this will give you the best choice with your suppliers and also time to save the budget if you need too. However with that being said a wedding can be organised in a few months if needed – nothing is impossible.
What to except with this package?
I’ll be your new best friend and go to in run up to your big day. I love that this time allows me to build a great relationship with my clients who often end up as friends afterwards.
I’ll identify your budget, guest list, proposed dates and wedding design/style. I’ll provide a realistic timeline of the planning process and ascertain roles/responsibilities throughout. I’ll be involved in venue research and sourcing, as well as liaising and negotiating with all your suppliers on your behalf. I’ll be available via email and phone, provide administrative support along with regular scheduled meetings to keep you informed at all times.
When your big day arrives I’ll be there to protect you from any stress and ensure everything runs perfectly. I always create a detailed timeline of the day starting with where the bridal party will get ready right through to the last song played. It is a very realistic timeline ensuring that the set-ups co-ordinate with the suppliers/venue and if there are any potential restrictions on the day.
Sound good? If you want the full experience and have a stress free engagement and wedding day then get in touch. I’d love to help you realise your Wedding day dreams!
Part Wedding Planning
This package allows you to pick and choose what you need. For example you may have already booked your venue and some suppliers but you’ve not created a budget yet?
I can pop in to help, look at everything you’ve done to date and create the budget tracker so you can move forward with peace of mind and not be over spending!
Another option and a very popular part planning package is design & styling. Some people can’t see past an empty room or blank marquee (which is totally fine!) However I can, as years of experience in design and styling allows me to be your eyes and I can bring your ideas to life. We’d have that all important complimentary consultation and then I’d get to work and create your wedding mood board with inspirational images, a list of trusted suppliers for you to consider and quotations for the individual items you need to fulfil your final wedding design.
Are you having a DIY wedding but need someone to set-up on the day? This is another way I can assist. There are so many ways I can help whether you are stuck looking for inspiration or just a guiding hand and the part planning allows you to pick and choose when you need the help the most!
On the Day Co-ordination
It does exactly what it says on the tin!
You have the fun of planning and booking suppliers etc, then I’ll come on board around 6 – 8 weeks before your Big Day and pull it all together for you. It’s a great time for me to come on board for a number of reasons; 1. If anything has been missed we’ve got time to sort/source it.
2. You’ll find at this point suppliers are looking for final details and payment. This can be an over whelming time and the last thing you want is stress in the run upto the Wedding – trust me, I’m an Events Manager! I’m here to take the stress away, talk to all your suppliers, arrange access times and ensure we are all singing from the same hymn sheet!
Similar to the Full Planning Package I would identify the roles & responsibilities of staff, venue & suppliers, create a very detailed timeline, offer advice and guidance for any last minute queries, produce a detailed plan reflecting the above information for you & the venue and I would be the one point of contact to liaise with the venue & suppliers in the run up to the your Wedding allowing you to calmly prepare in the knowledge everything is being taken care of.
On the day I would have a briefing with the venue, assist with any set-up, meet & greet suppliers and oversee the running of your Wedding from beginning to end. You can relax and enjoy your day knowing that everything is going to plan, YOUR plan
