Here are some of the most common questions I get asked about my wedding planning services.
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 perfect wedding 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.
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.
