Full Planning

Bride & Groom

The full wedding planning service is for couples who are looking for full support from an experienced wedding planner, who will give your day the time, care and attention it deserves to be absolutely unforgettable.  I will be there for you from the initial consultation to your first step into married life.

This starts with a consultation – at a time and place to suit you – for us to have the opportunity to get to know each other a little better.  Over the coming months, we will spend a lot of time together and it is crucial that our personalities gel and we feel comforable with each other to have a great working relationship.  I will want to explore your aspirations and wishes for your day, and also find out about you; your job, hobbies and interests, what you love and loathe, so that we can plan and design an unforgettable day, that you remain fully in control of, and that is truly ‘you’. I can be involved to any extent that you choose – as much or as little as is required.  This includes, but is not limited to the following;

Administration

I will draw up a budget for us to work to, set up timelines and payment schedules to ensure that no details are overlooked and everything that needs to be done is taking place at the right time to eliminate the likelihood of any unwelcome surprises.  I will provide you with a personal wedding planning file including this information to ensure that you remain up-to-date and fully informed about your preparations.

Design

If you are happy to go ahead with my proposal, then I will present my initial design ideas to you, from which we can then decide on the perfect style for you.   With some imagination and understanding of you and your wishes, I will create a personalised theme for your day, and will produce a design board that reflects your ideas.  We will source accessories and finishing touches to realise your vision and ensure that all suppliers work towards and enhance your theme.

Venue Search & Co-ordination

I will research an extensive, personally visited directory of venues and special unknown treasures to find you a venue that really captures and enhances the atmosphere and style of your wedding.  If required, I will also provide detailed advice on the ceremony style and format.

Supplier Management

I will research, source, manage and co-ordinate suppliers.  I only recommend the very best suppliers and will liaise with them throughout the planning process to make sure that they are fully aware of your wedding plans.  I can order samples and arrange appointments, complete administration, confirm all details, timings and deliveries.  I will source a dedicated and professional supplier based solely on their product, suitability and reliability for you.  Any discounts negotiated will be passed directly onto you.

RSVP & Guest Management

As the rsvp’s are returned, to either you or me, I will collate all of the guest information to include special requirements, dietary needs, hotel and transport details.  This will help us with the table planning but will also be vitally important on the day,where I will use it to help guests findtheir seats, support the caterers with any dietary needs, and for any other guest enquiries that may arise.

Wedding Day Management

From the initial set up until your departure, I can be present on the day to liaise with the venue and suppliers ensuring that everything comes together seamlessly.  I will be available to support your Best Man and Ushers with their duties.  I can make announcements to guide your guests and keep your day running on time, and will deal with any problems professionally, discreetly and without any disruption to you. I will have a Wedding Emergency Kit available with me to deal with any unforeseen incidents so they are resolved without you having even realised they have happened.

The Next Day

I will arrange for the removal of the decor and for any hire equipment and props to be collected.  I can return menswear to the hire outlet and arrange for dresses to be taken for cleaning.  I will handle any post wedding queries from guests and suppliers and provide a full wedding report to you within two weeks.

Investment:

A percentage of your budget or our minumim fee of £3,000.  This will be determined after the consultation and detailled in your proposal.
