If you’re wondering “do I really need a wedding planner?” the answer is no – you don’t need just a wedding planner, YOU NEED JESS! The easiest ever 5 stars. Jess was phenomenal – you will not find a safer pair of hands for the biggest day of your life!
BEFORE WEDDING DAY
We thought we could do it all but we were so SO wrong. 16mths before our big day we realised that wedding planning is someone’s profession for a REASON & opted to find an ‘on the day’ planner since most of our vendors were already booked. My biggest regret is not getting Jess on board from the outset!
We spoke with a number of wedding planners & at the end of back-to-back initial meetings, we didn’t even need to discuss who the best fit was – it was obviously Jess. Jess was, of course, kind & congratulatory & immediately easy to get on with, but she was also focused & able to demonstrate her ability to deliver our dream day from the very first moments of meeting her. We knew that she would have everything in hand!
Jess was our go to whenever we had a wobble or a question or needed to soundboard something. Nothing was too much & she always responded quickly & with results! She put us at ease every step of the way.
The thing with wedding planning is that you don’t know what you don’t know, & that is where Jess is essential. She won’t just people please – she’ll give you honest advice/opinions to ensure your day runs smoothly & in line with your vision, & she will quickly identify any issues or gaps & will have solutions before you can even ask!
ON THE DAY
Knowing Jess was going to be there put us at ease in the lead up. On the day we both said that booking Jess was the best decision we made on MULTIPLE occasions! Nothing was an issue, she had everything under control, & had solutions to any issues without us even knowing there’d been an issue. There was literally not one thing we had to worry about on the day.
Ultimately, Jess was both a friendly face on the day putting us at ease & also the most proficient organiser I’ve ever seen. She took command, made sure everything/everyone was where they needed to be, & did so in the kindest & most professional way without so much as breaking a sweat. She makes EVERYTHING look effortless! By the end of the day, we were devastated that she was leaving after having delivered our dream wedding day which, due to her sheer effort & skill, far exceeded our expectations & frankly blew us out the water.
1 – Don’t book any old wedding planner, BOOK JESS! And do it sooner than later – don’t be me, you can’t do it all!
2 – If you’re having a multi-day wedding, particularly with a pre-party, book Jess! We didn’t & when it came to bite me in the backside she was there at the drop of a hat & sorted EVERYTHING out. Massive regret not just booking her from the outset!
3 – Communicate! Jess is incredible but she’s not a mind reader, & she got to know us so well so that she could deliver the exact right aesthetic & atmosphere on the day.
4 – Trust Jess implicitly. There is a reason this is her profession. She delivers flawless weddings week in, week out. If you hand over the reins, you will NOT be disappointed!
Jess is one of the most organised people you will ever meet & you’ll rarely have a question that she hasn’t already thought of & answered – she goes above & beyond! She is also so incredibly kind & we like to think over the past couple of years has become a real friend, something we are so grateful for. Our day was flawless & it was entirely down to Jess. Booking Jessica Sharpe Weddings was one of our best decisions & if you are lucky enough to book her I know it will be yours too!
There are no words to actually express our gratitude. You are truly the best in the business & delivered a day that we will never ever forget & we know it would not have been possible without you. You have gone from strength to strength since Jan 2022 when we booked & it has been incredible to see & to be part of. We will be cheerleading you on as your business continues to thrive!
All our love,
Mr & Mrs Wilson xxx
