Your wedding, your way, with your feet up!
Wedding planning requires a serious time commitment, not to mention excellent planning skills, patience and determination.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed at the thought of everything there is to do or you know you simply don’t have the time required to plan your day, then maybe hiring a wedding planner is the thing for you. If you’re considering a marquee or tipi wedding then having a planner on board is particularly helpful as there is much more planning to undertake.
I can hold your hand throughout the process.
My planning service includes everything you need for a fabulous wedding, from sourcing the venue and other suppliers, advising on wedding etiquette, managing guest lists and RSVPs, right through to the placement of the last name card on the big day.
I will undertake every aspect of planning your wedding on your behalf but with your vision of your special day in mind. You will always retain full control of your wedding. All the final decisions sit with you but I will offer alternative ideas for you to consider and can offer neutral advice to help you deal with difficult situations.
It’s important to me that you have the best suppliers so I also provide very practical hands on support to find them for you. I will then work closely with them to ensure they are clear on your requirements, as well as working with them on timings and set up on the day.
I never accept commissions from suppliers. Any discounts I am able to secure on your behalf are always passed on to you.
I will be present on your wedding day to ensure that everything is set up correctly, deal with any queries or issues and generally make sure the day runs to plan. This means you can relax and enjoy getting ready knowing someone is focused on every little detail on your behalf.
I am based in South Yorkshire but am very happy to travel to help couples in other locations.
Get involved as much or as little as you like knowing you have someone on your side who will make YOUR day FABULOUS.

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!Phil, Father of the Bride
