SURREY COUNTRYSIDE, THE UK
doria & alie
How we planned this Three-in-one wedding that involved: Nikkah (Islamic ceremony), Blessing Ceremony and Reception.
Doria is from Algeria and Alie is from Sierra Leone. With it being a three-in-one wedding as well as combining multiple cultures, we wanted each part of the day to feel unique and equally respected. Our extensive experience of managing complex logistics and large scale productions allowed our clients to have a smooth running day and we went all out on the transformative design and 5* guest experience to bring their vision to life. Come see the result!
CHERRY BLOSSOMS TO A THOUSAND
From the outdoor ceremony that transported the guests to another world of cherry blossoms, to the epic reception complete with bespoke mocktail bar & dessert station, fine dining catering by Private Chefs, and not to mention the show stopping dance floor ceiling installation of a thousand floating candles and roses that left the guests speechless- this one is an AFTR wedding to remember.
I don't think I've even gone through any type of stress during the wedding planning.

"I was enquiring left right and centre for wedding planners and I told my husband that I wanted the best of the best. From the very first call I had with Gabby, I knew AFTR were going to plan our wedding. The thorough and transparent communication made the planning very easy- especially since neither me nor my husband were in the UK during the planning of the wedding as we both live abroad. We let Gabby and her team manage it all. Gabby's work ethic is absolutely impeccable. Her attention to detail is mind blowing and she brought our vision to life. Her suggestions were always spot on.
She has such a comprehensive list of reliable vendors that all delivered an amazing service. They managed to respect the multi cultural aspect of our wedding (North African/West African) and created a schedule that allowed both cultures to shine. So many of my guests told me that our wedding was the best they ever attended. Gabby and her team are more than our wedding planners, we see them as family and we are forever grateful for you guys. You don't just need any wedding planner. You need Gabby and her AFTR team."
