Frequently asked questions
How much do you charge for a complete planning service?
Although each planning service is unique to me. I do not charge more than £2500 for the standard planning service. However, there are additional services like: Post Event Close Down Entertainment Creating a wedding website or RSVP Management. The best advice, would be to set up a virtual meeting so we can get a more accurate idea into what you are hoping for.
Do you work on a set fee or a percentage basis?
I work on a set fee, this will help you plan a wedding planner into your budget from the beginning.
Do you have a minimum budget requirement?
I am probably one of the fewer planners that do not require a minimum budget. Lucky you :) x
Do you only work with certain venues and suppliers?
As I like to bespoke each service to my couples, I do not have a set directory I work with. However, I really do love building new relationships, so I will source suppliers and venues that are relevant to you, rather than fit you in the mold with 1, 2 or 3 set suppliers.
Do you plan destination weddings?
I do plan destination weddings, I can plan your wedding in the following countries: South Africa Trinidad & Tobago Spain (Barcelona)
Can you offer an “on the day” only service?
I can offer on the day service, it is my favourite part of my job! Seeing all your guests smiling (oh and of course you) really makes my year! Seeing all your hard work pay off. This service starts at £800 for under 200 guests and for one venue.
Do you offer wedding styling?
I do not. I wish I was super talented in that aspect. I am the serial Pinterest user and love when others work their magic for me. I do have a very good eye for vision though, so I can help there. Plus, I like to focus on managing the suppliers including the stylist, rather than the stylist managing your day and the photographers, caterers, venue and more etc.
Do you work alone or as part of a team?
I work alone (minority of the time) The company is me, but really the brains behind it all is my husband. He should be my business partner but he doesn't want to steal the limelight. He does attend some events with me, if I cannot be in two places at once or there are more than 200 guests.
How will you work with my wedding venue co-ordinator?
As soon as you book me, I will contact your venue coordinator and introduce myself. We will then liaise up until the day, avoiding troubling you, and ensuring we are on the same lines for a smooth and fun wedding celebration.
