Here are some of the most common questions I get asked about my wedding planning services. Can’t find an answer to your question? Contact me today for an informal chat about your wedding planning needs or check out my blog.

Can I afford a wedding planner? 
My aim as a wedding planner is not to add to your costs but instead help you plan the wedding of your dreams while staying within your budget. Essentially, my services are covered by the reductions I obtain from suppliers. I do not have “special arrangements” with specific suppliers; I have simply built wonderful relationships with them over the years and am now in a position to negotiate great deals. I can also save you a lot of time and stress and provide you with peace of mind so that you can enjoy your big day. Some would say that this service is priceless!

Why isn't a price given for your full and partial planning packages? 
Every couple has their own budget, ideas, and plans for their big day. As a rough guide, the price for the full planning package is based at around 10-15% of your total wedding budget. If you’d rather opt for a partial planning package, once you tell me what services you would like me to provide, I will work with you to offer a cost-effective package. 

When should we contact you?
This depends on how much help you’d like! I can assist you from the very beginning or later on in the process with very specific aspects of planning. Take a look at my services to get an idea of how I can help create your perfect wedding day.

We only want a small wedding but we just don’t have the time to plan anything. Can you help?
Absolutely! I can assist with planning any size wedding or event from the grandest celebration to the most intimate ceremony. Large or small, I can deliver exactly the wedding or event you’re after. If you are based in Buckinghamshire and Berkshire and need help with your wedding planning, contact me today to discuss your requirements.

What other events do you plan?
I have extensive experience of planning all types of events, some with very specific requirements others with more room for creativity. Whether you’re planning a birthday bash, bar mitzvah, or large-scale corporate conference, I have the experience and contacts to coordinate a truly successful event.

What makes you stand apart from other wedding and event planners?
Before becoming a wedding planner, I had a long career in the hospitality industry in the UK and overseas, managing restaurants and planning large-scale events. From there I had a successful career in sales. My love for event planning combined with a gift for negotiating means that I deliver magnificent events at a great cost. What led me to wedding planning is how rewarding it is to know I have helped create a couple’s perfect wedding day – to see their smiles throughout the day and to be part of such a special occasion is truly an honour. It’s a combination of my particular skills and the love for what I do that sets me apart.
