Congratulations! However, if your attitude towards wedding planning is erring slightly more towards panic and despair than Pinterest and delight, don't fret. Nowadays it's no longer about having a wedding planner or not - it's about getting started, the details, and the big finish. There are loads of in-betweens from couples who want on-the-day help, to those who want some supplier recommendations, to those who want some styling assistance. This means you can cherry pick the bits of the planning that you want to offload onto a willing individual - (hello me!). I can work alongside you to help you wherever you want support, and then leave you to the bits that you're looking forward to doing.
Creative wedding styling + Trendspotting
We're so lucky to live in a world where inspiration, styling and ideas are absolutely everywhere. However, this can sometimes be crazily overwhelming. Whether it's knowing where to even begin, or translating the perfect picture you've painted in your head to paper, I can help craft a vision for your day to reflect what you both want. This can include moodboards, colour palettes, supplier suggestions, DIY solutions, blog post bookmarks - however your wedding styling rut needs solving, we can solve it!

Sure, everyone knows a wedding florist or a wedding cake maker, but do many people know one that they can confidently say they trust implicitly? Well, I can. Years of experience, social media attention and a loooooot of real-life networking and gushing mean that I know a multitude of incredible suppliers who will treat your particular project with the creativity, care, and complete devotion that it deserves. I cater for both really specific requests wanting to nail that particular aspect and more generic ones, wanting to sift through the mires of search engines.

Credit where credit is due, wedding planning takes a lot of organisation (it's kind of in the name, actually). Understandably, you may want the pressures of the decisions and the last-minute minor details left to someone else on the actual day itself. I can be the point of contact on the day, liaising with all the suppliers to make sure the day runs smoothly, and getting things done behind the scenes so that you can hitched without a hitch. I can also keep an eye on the time - not to hold you to exact timings Monica Bing-style with a headset, but just so that you get to enjoy everything you have planned. Once everything's sorted, I can melt away into the shadows, leaving you to enjoy your evening knowing that the day was a rip-roaring success.
Please note - I am only available for on-the-day coordination on SELECT dates in 2018. I am unavailable most Saturdays. Please get in touch to see if I'm available on your big day!
