My wedding venue already has a wedding coordinator, why do I need a wedding planner?
The role of an in-house wedding coordinator belonging to a venue is quite different to that of a dedicated wedding planner. A venue coordinator will handle your booking, and manage the staff, facilities and services at your venue. Whereas a dedicated wedding planner will support you throughout your whole journey and is there for YOU and only you on your day.
You can explore our full wedding planning services here.
On the day, your planner is there as a trusted, personal support for you and your guests. They manage your overall timeline, including supplier arrivals, hire deliveries and set up, and ensure that your vision and styling is executed perfectly to plan. Not to mention someone to calm your nerves, straighten your dress, look after your gifts, hand out the confetti, ensure everything is cleared up, and so much more!
However wedding planners and venue coordinators regularly work together on the day, giving you the ultimate support all-round.
Can I use my own suppliers?
Absolutely. However we still always recommend our trusted suppliers to couples. This is because we know they’re reliable, we have worked with them before, we know they deliver a quality, personalised service, and we can ensure that you’ll receive the best value for money. But if there’s a particular supplier you’d like to use, that’s fine too, we’ll work closely with them to ensure we deliver your perfect vision.
Can I still be involved in the planning?
Of course! It’s up to you how much support you need from us. Naturally, it’s best to agree who will be managing what, but it really is a co-planning journey from the start. We’re simply here for guidance and to make it all happen! Unless you want us to take complete control!
What if there’s something I’m not keen on?
Everything we create is 100% tailored to your individual ideas and personal style. We’ll always explore every avenue together, and fine tune your vision and style priorities in the early stages to ensure that we’re on the same page; never actioning anything without your say-so. However, if as time goes on there’s something you’d prefer differently, that’s ok, we’ll always work with you for no extra charge until everything is perfect.
Are you insured? Yes absolutely. We have full public liability and professional indemnity cover.
How do I book?
To secure your booking we ask for a 40% non-refundable deposit, followed by two further instalments in the run up to your day. However our on the day and supplier search services, and any other services booked on or less than 90 days before your day are to be paid in full upon booking.
I’m interested, what’s the next step?
We always begin with a really informal, completely free, and no obligation telephone consultation; more of a chat really. It’s here that we start to get to know each other, discuss your priorities and the things that matter most to you, talk through any queries that you might have, and how our journey together would typically start to take shape. So just drop us an email or a message via our contact page and we’ll be happy to arrange a call for a time that suits you best.
