While the majority of our portfolio features weddings in the UK and abroad, we also plan private parties for milestone celebrations, birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers and kids parties. We love nothing more than an amazing party and the skills needed to plan a wedding also happen to create seriously special celebrations.
It is not necessary to have your venue booked before hiring a wedding planner. For our full planning clients, we can handle all the logistics of venue selection for you. This way, we can source the perfect one based on your preferences, style and budget. We can advise on what is good value for your investment and can avoid potential restrictions like only being able to hire venue recommended suppliers, early finish time, difficulties with production logistics, sound inhibitors and many other details that people might usually not think of at the early stage of planning.
If you do have a specific venue in mind and it is important to you, it may be beneficial to book the venue first or enquire to check that it is available for your desired date while you are searching for your planner. This will give us a clear idea of the space you will be working with and allow us to start planning the details of your wedding accordingly.
Absolutely, yes. We do a few of these types of weddings a year, we have now grown to love this. Zoom/email and a whatsapp group is our best-friend for this in communication with you on a daily basis. Many couples trust us so much that we even book the venue without them being in the country!

A wedding planner is responsible for managing and coordinating all aspects of your wedding, from start to finish. We work with you to develop a cohesive vision for your wedding (with which we brief the decorator and match the right one), create a budget, select venue + vendors, and handle logistics such as contracts, timelines, and guest lists. We also oversee the entire event, ensuring that everything runs smoothly and according to plan.
A wedding decorator is responsible for creating the visual design and ambiance of your wedding. They work with you to develop a theme or style for your wedding, and then use decor elements such as flowers, lighting, linens, and props to bring that vision to life.
While both wedding planners and decorators are involved in the aesthetic design of your wedding, their roles are distinct. If you need help with all aspects of your wedding planning, a wedding planner is a good choice. If you have a clear vision for your wedding and just need help executing the decor, a decorator may be a better fit.
We have 6 team members in total- the number of team members present on the event day is based on your guests count. On the day, we have a team member act as a couple coordinator, a vendor coordinator and guests coordinator. The whole team on the day work equally together to achieve the expectations and vision of the event.

Yes of course, a multi-day wedding is where you have your pre- wedding /rehearsal dinner the day before, followed by a relaxed morning yoga session or a game of clay shooting for the gents and an afternoon wedding ceremony and reception.

We are seeing more of our clients opting for 3 day celebrations like this- for weddings and even birthday parties- it can be tailored and bespoke from a weekend to a week of celebrations.

This means we’re uniquely placed to recommend the people we think are going to bring your ideas to life with passion and dedication. But recommendations are all they ever are.
