PERSONALLY YOURS - a freelance event management service for corporate events and weddings that ensures a highly professional service

Corporate Events or weddings are highly complex business and social events involving a seemingly endless number of tasks. It also carries with it large expectations. For example, every bride wants her day to be the most perfect wedding her guests have ever attended. Achieving perfection takes a great deal of work, and time – around 250 hours of planning time on average.

That’s why engaging an accredited professional planner can be one of the most pragmatic decisions you can ever make. A good professional planner brings a wealth of experience in offering consultancy, organising timelines and budgets, negotiating with venues and services for best value rates. They’re also etiquette advisors, logistics experts, and fashion gurus!

Our complete wedding planning service means we start working on every single aspect of your unique and special day as soon as 'the question is popped' right up the moment the last guests have left your reception. We offer consultancy on how your ideas and wishes can be best achieved but as the client you are always in control. We are also able to offer support with other Registrar services ie Naming Ceremonies and Renewal of Vows plus full event management for corporate events both big and small.

For 2014, we can also offer specialist wedding ceremonies and honeymoons in Kefalonia, Greece.

Or, we can provide part management packages, advising and assisting with particular aspects of your planning whether it's upfront consultancy to achieve your own personalised action plan; or venue finding and negotiation; or on-the-day management; or even just ad hoc support at those moments when stress is high and time is short.

Our work will ensure that every little detail that is needed to contribute to the achievement of your unique event is in place and happens. You can therefore be more relaxed and confident throughout the whole pre-wedding period, safe in the knowledge that you have professionals crafting your perfect day.

Originally working in the public sector industry for over 12 years, Personally Yours has evolved into a freelance one-stop events management company, catering for the diverse and demanding requirements for public and private sectors and also now incorporating a fully accredited wedding planning service.

From experience working with the London Olympics Legacy Team, International Delegations from around the world, exhibiting at the Chelsea Flower Show, to staging a Later Life Expo (delivered for Essex County Council which was the first of its type in the country) - we have a proven track record in delivering objective-driven high quality events to brief and budget, underpinned by our experience, expertise and dedicated team working. We guarantee that we will save you more money in using our services than arranging it yourself.

Testimonials

“During the years that I have known Sharon I have come to appreciate her attention to detail and the organisation she brings to events both large and small. These have ranged from meetings for around a dozen people to a large marquee at a country show. The success of these events was in a large measure due to the commitment she shows and her solicitous attitude to those attending.” November 7, 2012

George Kieffer, Haven Gateway Partnership (business partner)

I just wanted to send a big thank you to you and your team for all the hard work to make the Essex Later Life Show a huge success. I understand around 1,300 visited the show; certainly the most successful public event I have been to in Essex, and a huge tribute to your fantastic organisational skills"

Jenny Owen, Essex County Council , Deputy Chief Executive

"You Make The Difference in Essex Awards.
You did such a sterling job and it is brilliant to see your organisation and planning recognised explicitly by so many of the respondents. I attended another awards ceremony recently and felt that there was a marked difference in the level of organisation between that and this."

Joanna Killian, Essex County Council CEO
