Frequently Asked Questions
How does the Planning process work?
After our initial consultation I will prepare a bespoke proposal & mood board for your perusal. If you’re happy to go ahead I will send you my contract & deposit invoice. After this you will be invited to your own Wedding management system online where we will start sourcing your suppliers and planning your magical day!
Why do I need a Wedding Planner?
If you’re recently engaged you may be unsure where to start with planning your Wedding and have multiple questions. How do you choose your perfect venue, theme and menu? After looking at your priorities we will create a personalised mood board and timeline to ensure you have the Wedding of your dreams!
How does the supplier sourcing work?
Following the initial consultation meeting and after contracts have been signed between us I will begin your supplier sourcing based on your personal Wedding Day requirements and preferences. You will be presented with suppliers that match your Wedding style and theme for you to make an informed choice. We recommend reputable and trustworthy suppliers that are vetted by ourselves to ensure they deliver exactly what they promise.
Can you help organise pre & post Wedding events too?
Absolutely! I can help you plan any welcome events for your guests and leaving lunches the day after your Wedding. I can also assist with booking any activities you may want to include.
Do you attend my Destination Wedding & are these costs extra?
I attend Weddings over 10 guests and conduct at least one site-visit with you to ensure your Wedding is planned effectively. I ask for my travel expenses to be covered but these will be confirmed in advance.
Being there for my couples on their Wedding Day is a huge part of my service and the pinnacle of all our work together. With all to do lists complete and paperwork circulated you can enjoy the whole day with your loved ones knowing that I am on hand to oversee and manage all suppliers and eventualities. You can simply relax, celebrate & dance the night away!
How many hours do you work during the Wedding?
I am on-site throughout your Wedding and usually work for 15 hours on the Wedding Day plus any additional hours for pre & post Wedding events.
What challenges might I face if I don’t hire a Wedding Planner?
You may feel confident in planning your own Wedding, however as it is a new experience there may be some elements that you forget about or don’t foresee like we do.
If you’re juggling a family, work and other commitments it may be a struggle to find time to plan each part of your Wedding Day. You may hire suppliers that aren’t credible which can then cause problems on the day.
What type of Ceremonies do you help plan?
We work on religious, civil and symbolic ceremonies across the UK & Europe. Some countries have stricter stipulations if you are hoping for a religious ceremony, however we will notify you of any challenges and suggest options to ensure this is planned smoothly.
Can you help with the legal marriage paperwork?
Whilst we’re unable to manage your paperwork personally we can advise you how to arrange your legal ceremony and point you in the right direction.
Do you organise travel & accommodation?
Yes, I can assist with all travel, accommodation and logistic elements associated to your Wedding. I work closely with an expert independent travel advisor who is ATOL licensed and able to tailor travel packages for you & your guests.
What are your payment terms?
An upfront, non-refundable 40% deposit is required upon booking and to secure your Wedding date. A further 40% is required 16 weeks before the wedding date. The final 20% is due 4 weeks before the wedding date.
Do you have insurance?
