Frequently Asked


On average, it takes 250 hours to plan a wedding… I know, it’s a LOT! So it goes without saying that hiring me will save you a lot of time.

But something just as valuable in my opinion is that I’ll make the process enjoyable and stress free. I can help with the organisational side of things, the creative design side, the admin, or all of the above. I can take ownership of the jobs you’d rather not do and guide you through every step of the planning process. When you consider that you’ll probably be planning for at least a year, I think it’s pretty important that you’re not stressed out or overwhelmed the whole time. Even better, imagine actually having fun with it?! The focus is very much on the ‘big day’ so it’s easy to overlook what an incredible experience planning it together can be!

My approach very much revolves around you. I’ll start by getting to you know you as a couple. I’ll take the time to find out your likes and dislikes, your personality and passions, so that I can get a feel of what works for you and your style .

Depending on which service you opt for, I’ll then begin on searching for a perfect venue. Whether that be a manor house, stately home, or barn, I will put together a shortlist of the venues I think suit you.

Once the venue is confirmed, I’ll create moodboards and look-books containing all the things that bring a wedding to life and makes it unique to you. From colour palettes to décor and styling, we will use this to create your brief which we can show to suppliers to start making your dream a reality.

I’ll be with you every step of the way. In advance of the day, I’ll be creating schedules, timelines, liaising with the suppliers, keeping the planning on track. On the day, I’ll be there to manage everything: from set up to co-ordinating suppliers, I’ll ensure everything runs smoothly so that you can savour your vision as it comes together in front of your eyes.

The most important thing is that you enjoy your day and that’s what all my energy goes towards!

I’ll take care of everything as agreed - organising the set up, ensuring all the details are in the correct place, and making sure everything runs to schedule.

I’ll also co-ordinate suppliers and answer any questions they might have. So whether it’s ensuring guests are in the right place, helping the photographer with organising photos or ensuring you two get a moment to yourself to breathe, I’ll be there to help facilitate it.

To provide you with a dedicated, highly personal service, I take on just a handful of full service weddings each year - it’s worth getting in touch as soon as you possible if you’d like to work with me.  

Yes, we are fully covered by public liability insurance

Absolutely! My favourite part is bringing it all to life on the wedding day.

If you’re interested in my services, the first step is to arrange a complimentary discovery call to discuss your day and how I can best help you.

Throughout the planning we’ll probably talk more than you will with some of your friends, so it’s really important to get a feel for each other and find out if we’re a great match! If we click, I’ll create a bespoke quote following our consultation, and it will contain details of my service tailored to your needs and pricing.
