FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q - Why would I need a Wedding Planner?
A - A good planner will help you save time, money and stress. A planner will talk you through your ideas and advise using their experience to make your dream day a reality. They can also make sure you stay in budget and keep all your friends and family happy. Their role is to ensure you can enjoy your day knowing your planner is there to answer all questions for your guests and suppliers.
Q - I've booked but the restriction means I can't have all my guests, what do I do?
A - If you have booked through us we will be in contact to rearrange or amend your wedding plans. This could mean streaming your wedding, finding a more suitable date or a suitable location.
Q - My venue of choice already has a coordinator, do I still need a planner?
A - We would recommend that you still consider a planner so the venue coordinator can handle anything related to the venue such as catering, staff, toilets, etc. A Planner will take care of the Wedding party and guest queries as well as add your touch to the wedding.
Q - Do you travel?
A - Yes. I travel to almost anywhere. I am experienced in planning weddings in most boroughs of the UK as well as India, Bangladesh, France, Italy, Thailand, Dubai, Mauritius, Portugal, America and Cayman Islands.
Q - What is the smallest budget you can work with?
A- Although I like to provide my full wedding package, as it helps me keep on top of the wedding, which starts at £3,997, I often do also get involved with "Day of" planning and manage the day for as little as £997 (if local).
Q - I'm already an organised person, would a Planner be right?
A - Yes, defiantly. Many couples find it hard to relax on their wedding day as they have had so much to do beforehand. A Planner will handle all of your arrangements on your behalf so you can sit back and enjoy the special celebration, get involved when you want, if you want, but rest assured that your Planner is working with you.
Q - When do you get involved in weddings?
A - As soon as you want me to. Some couples, like to find a venue and then book me. Other couples like to book e first and I help them find a venue, budget and theme first. If couples only want me to manage the day I would recommend getting in touch at least 6 weeks before the wedding, if not earlier. If I am planning the entire wedding I usually get involved from as far as 3 years to as little as 3 months.
Q - Will you look after everything?
A - YES! If you are too busy, or just not a planning person, I will manage it all for you and you and your parent just sign off the final decisions. We can catch up as often or little as you prefer.
Q - What type of weddings do you get involved with?
A - After 15 years in the industry I am proud to say I do not "type" my weddings. Although I focus on high-end luxury weddings, I also get involved in DIY weddings (off season within 10 miles of where I live), same-sex weddings, mixed-race weddings and Asian weddings. I have planned weddings for budgets as large as £1.2 million, spanning over 10 days, attendance of 2,000 guests and I have even done some very small 25 people (pre covid) elopements with a budget of £40,000.
I just love turning someone's idea into a beautiful day.
Q -What is your favourite wedding that you have planned?
A - It may sound biased but I'll have to say it's my own wedding. It happened during the brief few weeks we had where 30 people were allowed, we did it at home. What I liked the best was that I had a blank canvas to build up and set up. Pushed me to my limits but we had a magical day.
