What areas do you cover?
I cover Hampshire, West Sussex, East Sussex and Surrey but can discuss other areas also.
Don’t the venues have wedding planners?
Venues often have a wedding or event planner, however they have events every week and often there will be a wedding the day after yours or even the same day! While they will give you what they can, they are restricted in how much they can do and will be focusing on a lot of other things at the same time. My priority will be you and your day.
Will you take over our day?
No this is your day, not mine. I’m just there to do the boring/detailed stuff. Don’t forget I can do as much or as little as you need.
We don’t have the spare cash to pay for a planner? Is this going to cost us a fortune?
Weddings are expensive and I understand why people may be reluctant to spend more. However you can choose a package which you can afford and once you see the results and how much stress is taken off of you, you will see it is money very well spent. Also think of the time you are are saving yourself. I have access to lots of suppliers so will work with them to get discounts on your behalf (I’m an excellent negotiator). Any discounts I get will be directly passed to you.
How much are you?
It varies depending on the package you book but anything from £650 for the On Your Day, £1500 for the Partial Planning to 12% of the wedding budget for the Full Wedding Planning package (minimum £2500). I also offer Venue Sourcing and Supplier Sourcing, Other Packages and a Tailor-made package to suit your needs.
Do you have a payment plan?
Yes, please see Split The Cost for how I can help.
Do you offer a free initial consultation?
I offer a free initial consultation over the phone or skype. Contact me and we can book a convenient time.
How often will we meet?
This depends on the package you book and we will discuss this at the initial consultation.
Do you plan civil ceremonies?
Yes, of course.
What else do you do, apart from weddings?
I can plan parties, corporate events, christmas dos, and much more. See Party and Event Planning.
Will you only recommend venues and suppliers you’ve worked with?
No, I will search for and recommend suppliers that suit your needs.
Do you take commission from suppliers?
I do not take any payments or commission from venues or suppliers and any savings will be passed directly to you.
I’m unsure if this is right for me?
