My Planning Services
Do you want to be able to relax and enjoy the wedding planning process?
Do you want your wedding day to be an amazing day that your guests will talk about for months to come?
Fancy having a professional planner on your side?
Yes, yes, yes? Then read on to learn how I can make the happen…….
The average wedding takes around 250 hours of time to plan and deliver. Planning your wedding should be fun and enjoyable but it can be a challenge to find the time to do everything.
And if you’re considering a marquee, tipi or dry hire wedding, then you are pretty much starting from scratch. As well as obtaining land for the reception, there’s the marquee / tipi, furniture, tableware, WCs, a bar, catering (and their kitchen), staff, décor, entertainment, styling….the list goes on.
That’s not even taking into account the inevitable issues to resolve ahead of, and on, the day that you really don’t want to be sorting out in your wedding dress or suit!
That’s where I come in as a wedding planner. Phil, the father of the bride at one of my recent weddings, explains how they came to the realisation that a wedding planner was essential…
We were determined to organise everything ourselves but soon realised there was far more to a modern marriage [and more to go wrong] than any of us had imagined. That’s when we asked Louise to get involved. We’ve never regretted that decision.
Louise was so organised and super-efficient that we handed her more and more responsibility and she didn’t let us down. Louise offered the ideal balance of support freeing us from hassle and worry while involving us in all the decisions where we wanted an input. And on the day it all came together beautifully – despite the weather! Thanks Louise!

Every wedding is different so I provide a range of flexible wedding planning services which can all be tailored to your needs.
I offer a free initial consultation to all couples where we can chat about your ideas for your wedding and get to know each other. That allows us the chance to connect, as we’ll be working closely together throughout the planning. It will also ensure we agree on the right level of support you need.

This service is totally bespoke so the price will vary depending upon how much there is still left to arrange.
If you need some support that doesn’t match any of the above, drop me a line and we can work out how I can help.
Please note, I am a proud member of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners. You can therefore, be assured that I comply with their Code of Business Practice and any supplier discounts I can secure are passed on to you in their entirety.
To discuss any of the above, please do get in touch. And just so you know, I’m an award winning project manager, and I epitomise true Yorkshire friendliness [unless you are a supplier who has let me down 😉] So don’t be frightened to pick up the phone and say “Louise – I think we might need your help but I’m not sure what we need.”
