AFTR CLIENTS ARE
THE AFTR SIGNATURE INGREDIENT
Yes we love the beautiful decor and flowers like anyone else, but the key to making your event unforgettable lies in Good Entertainment. It is the one shared experience for all your guests to enjoy together, whether its the DJ, cocktail bar, surprise fireworks, even the way food is presented could be entertainment. This is where we can create the element of wonder and surprise that gets people saying “Wow, this was the best wedding I’ve been to!”
Weddings and celebrations are about people enjoying themselves. Delivering exceptional guest experience is in the signature of every AFTR event, because this is what allows people to feel cared for, have a good time and connect with you & each other. Luxury is about the experience, 5 senses. Its about evoking an emotional reaction, regardless of the budget. How you make them feel is what they will remember about your day- and we love to ensure that its a memorable one.
The look on your face when you see your vision come to life for the first time
our favourite part of the job?
We aim to evoke all five senses in each of our events. This is how we translate our client's ideas into a tangible experience. We get to understand what is meaningful to you and out of your stories and vision, we bring a concept to life. From textured stationery, sublime food and drinks pairings, structured order of the day, music that appropriately enriches the atmosphere, considered colours and innovative designs- this level of detail is unique to AFTR and we really do think of everything. This adds depths of layers to your guest's memories, leaving a lasting impression of your celebration for years to come.
Our experience with AFTR has been incredible. Gabby was a pleasure to work with throughout the year of planning. Communication was excellent and Gabby was there for us whenever we needed. We got to know her so well over the planning process. Our wedding was such a fantastic day and went so smoothly thanks to AFTR’s excellent selection of vendors for us to choose from and brilliant on the day coordination. We had so much positive feedback from our wedding guests about Gabby’s team and we’re thankful to have had chosen AFTR to plan our wedding.
THEODORA & YINKA
Gabby and her team are hands down, the best vendors we hired for our entire wedding. Not only do they live and breath events, they are a joy to work with. Honestly, we couldn't have prayed for better wedding planners. If you are anything like me, you'll appreciate knowing that Gabby gives you the space to be as hands on as you want to be, but in the same vein- she is right there to pick up every piece when it all becomes too much to handle. From the day we started working with Gabby, our entire wedding journey was transformed and we enjoyed every moment. The team have a great attention to detail and make sure without a doubt that your every dream comes true on your wedding day, even the things you forget! Thank you once again AFTR team!
EMI & eMMANUEL
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 we were not in the UK during the planning of the wedding. 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. 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.

I don't know where to start and how to thank you for our big day. The way you brought our visions to reality. You never got tired of our constant calls and emails to make every detail whether it was big or small to be seen. Your professionalism and talent is impeccable & whole new level. You know that your wedding was LIT when you have people still talking 8 months later & strangers asking you for your planner. Trust me when I say hiring AFTR as your planner is going to be the best decision of your life. AFTR is the BEST wedding planner and I'll choose her & the team over and over again. Thank you thank you thank you Gabby for everything, we love you!
RACHEL & ABIOUDUN
I can not find sufficient words to describe how personable and professional Gabby and her team are. From the moment we started working together from engagement all the way to the day of the wedding. The AFTR team had to step in on our day when a vendor failed to attend but made sure that me and my husband were not aware of this mishap, this is a true reflection of their professionalism and how dedicated they are. This is a true 5 star service which we highly recommend. Gabby and team thank you for making our special day a magical one.
CAROLINE & VIVIAN
Where do we start from!? Gabby and her team have been planning our wedding for the past 2 years in the making. They felt like family honestly. They have been amazing from planning to execution even with a little touch of aftercare.
Gabby and the AFTR team went above and beyond to make our day special. Infact, we’ve been getting a lot of questions and positive feedback from our guests about who planned and organised our wedding. We are soo impressed! We’re giving Gabby and the AFTR Team all 5 stars ⭐️!! Everything was done to perfection!! Thank you for making our dream wedding a reality !
