First of all, we know that everyone is different, so you can be as hands on or hands off as you like. This is not a one-size-fits-all operation, the process will be fully tailored to your needs. Whether you prefer to facetime or text, email or whatsapp, we'll make it work and fit in with your schedule to plan each detail.
The aim is to make wedding planning as enjoyable and efficient as possible for you, I'll handle the time consuming admin (checking availability and pricing with vendors, sourcing suppliers, looking over contracts, confirming details and changes with vendors etc.) but will still look to you for final decisions on your vendors and input on the fun bits like styling, music choices, flow, and floor plan.
We'll kick things off with a no obligations initial consultation, where we'll chat through your priorities and your vision, and make sure that this is the right package for you. Following this I'll shoot over a customised quote for you to review before we lock things in. We'll then work through your priorities one by one, and book in the vendors that are the best fit. I'll always provide recommendations at varying price points, and continue to add to the list until you're 100% happy.
From the high level tasks like hiring the finding a venue, to the tiniest of details like ensuring you don't miss a photo at sunset, I'll guide you through the process in order, so you never have to lay awake at night wondering if there is something you are forgetting. The planning of tasks will be paced out so that we have a few items on deck at a time, never allowing the wedding to be taking over your life.
On the day, I'll of course be there to ensure everything is coming together exactly as planned, putting out any potential fires and generally being the go to person to act on your behalf so that the two of you, along with your families and friends, can sit back, relax and enjoy.
