A wedding planner is a key asset as you embark on your wedding journey. A planner will take care of all the hundred little details, leaving you to enjoy your engagement and weddings day. For some, weddings details like: dress, cake, invitations, and favours are simple subjects to address when the time come to planning the big day. However, for many, the mere thought of it all becomes too much to handle. It takes, on average, over 250 hours to plan a wedding! Most couples find themselves overwhelmed as soon as the planning starts; drowning in details. Allow us to take over and work seamlessly on every single detail from A to Z.
OUR RECEPTION VENUE COME WITH A COORDINATOR, DO WE STILL NEED A WEDDING PLANNER?
Venue coordinators work for the venue, they are available to answer your questions and assist you with your venue layout. They are someone you may contact if you need extra reassurance about the details of your wedding venue. however, their loyalty is to the venue. Their tasks do not include all the fine details that go into your wedding. Having a wedding planner means complete confidence that all details are taken care of for you.

The short answer is no. If you are interested in a venue that is not listed on our preferred vendor list, or have a preferred supplier in mind then we are open to discussion. Remember this is YOUR day and YOUR vision. The benefit of working with our recommended venues and suppliers/ vendors is that they have been tried and tested. We only recommend them with more confidence than those we have not collaborated with in the past. That said, we are always happy to work with new venues and vendors, as long as our clients are comfortable with their decision.

We are a premium wedding planning service and plan all kinds of events; from intimate elopements from just bride and groom, to large parties.
