Frequently Asked Questions

1Where do you plan weddings?
My base is beautifully central for the UK – I love discovering hidden gems of locations and will travel as far as your imagination will reach to secure your perfect location. From the Lake District, Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Cotswolds and Wales I will happily travel for your day. I work with suppliers who share the same vision as I do, throughout the UK.
2Will you be at my wedding?
Yes, I will always work my weddings, being there on the day is hugely important to me and that will never change. I will also bring the appropriate team of assistants with me to ensure no detail is missed, and to make sure everything runs smoothly for you.
3I live abroad, can you plan my wedding?
Yes absolutely. Often my international clients have a personal tie to the UK and we work together to produce something beautiful. I am more than happy to do our video calls at a time that works for your timezone, and will ensure you have the same seamless experience as my couples based in the UK. Around 40% of my clients at any one time are internationally based so you can be sure you'll be in safe hands.
4What’s your deposit information and payment terms?
All of my planning services are tailored to your requirements. Upon booking you will be provided with a summary of key information, dates and expectations throughout our time together, personalised to you.
5I'd like a weekend celebration, can you plan that?
I sure can! Extending your celebrations over a weekend is something a lot of my clients choose to do to really get the most out of their wedding magic! From the very first guests arrival to their departure, I will work with you ensure you and your guests have an incredibly memorable weekend.
6What overall wedding budget do we need to work with you?
I am open and honest with both planning fees and overall projected costs, following our consultation. These greatly depend on preferences and your vision. As your wedding planner it's important to me that you to get the most value out of my planning services. Also, I believe it is part of my responsibility to ensure you spend your money wisely.

With this in mind (for my full planning and partial planning) my couples typically have budgets of £50K+ allocated to their weddings. That's not to say I won't work with smaller budgets, but this is where I provide them with the maximum return on investment.

1Do you only work with specific suppliers and venues?

No, I am open to working with a range of suppliers. I actively seek out new suppliers based upon the needs of my clients. I will make recommendations for suppliers and venues based on a number of factors but you will always make the final decision.

My business is built on trust and authenticity, with supplier relationships being an integral factor. I have a extensive supplier network in which I actively engage in meeting new suppliers to best meet my clients needs.

2I'm a supplier and I'd like to work with you, how do I reach you?
I love getting to know new suppliers. Before contacting me please take a little minute to familiarise yourself with how I work. Then, email is the best way to reach me.
3How much do your wedding planning services cost?
It’s impossible to give exact figures without knowing the scope of work required. Following our consultation, you will receive a quotation and proposal detailing the inclusions. Your quotation will depend on many factors; location, guest numbers, intricacy, duration to name a few. For my full planning clients, I am also able to offer a fixed fee for larger budgets. We can chat through this in more detail during our consultation if this is applicable to you.
4What are you like to work with as a wedding planner?

I don’t put on a front with my couples, we work closely together and get to know each other in a way that’s authentic. No fluff, no nonsense! I am a practical solution for busy lives.

My planning approach is people-focused, and I make sure to really listen and make sure I’ve understood what drives the two of you. I won’t lead you on any wild goose chases, and will tell you if any ideas won’t work. This is a collaboration, and I’m here to give you honest, direct and down to earth guidance every step of the way, helping you feel empowered in your decisions and facilitating a wedding that’s immersive, joyful, personal and all-round GORGEOUS.

5Are you insured?
Yes, I hold both public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance.
6Why do I need a wedding planner, my venue has a coordinator?
It's a common misconception to confuse the role of wedding planners and venue coordinators. I highly respect venue coordinators and managers and have great relationships with many event managers within wedding venues. In general, a venue coordinator will be working on a much higher volume of weddings than a planner, meaning it's impossible for them to give the same level of service. In addition, a venue coordinator will tend to be focussed on the venue related elements with regards to your wedding, whereas a planner will get involved with the details, such as guest RSVP management, wedding design, accommodation planning and budget management.
