I met Sian earlier this year when I needed the help of a professional wedding/party planner to put together my Wedding Blessing and garden party in less that 6 weeks.
Enter Sian Belton....
As a professional (control freak) running my own business to tight schedules and timelines I am not an easy person to work for. From the start Sian was the consummate professional keen to listen but also to stand firm where she needed to to ensure deadlines were met with suppliers.
Sian worked tirelessly from the moment she was given our remit, providing us with ideas and support whichever and whenever it was needed. Despite the challenge of working for someone that doesn't stand still and who was also out of the country Sian retained her composure, integrity and equally importantly a fantastic sense of humour....and we did laugh!!
One of Sian's many strengths is her imagination and ability to bring together her clients' ideas and her own knowledge. She has a black book of suppliers to die for and saved me quite a lot in costs because of her relationships. Sian really was worth her weight in gold and I felt that the costs saved meant she came 'free' in the package!
On the day of the celebrations Sian remained on hand to the last ensuring that all staff hired were managed and we barely noticed them or her gliding in and out amongst our guests.
I have the absolute pleasure in considering Sian a friend of the family and have just asked her to plan our daughter's 13th birthday party!
I have absolutely no hesitation in positively recommending her to anyone looking for a professional planner.
