Making your dream event a reality.

I am Danni, a wedding and event planner for every occasion, based in Newmarket, Suffolk. I thoroughly enjoy making your vision come to life and taking away the stress of organizing it, allowing you to enjoy the delights of the day or night, whatever the occasion. I am extremely organized and ensure every detail of the event is well thought out, from Weddings and birthdays to corporate meetings and functions. I can help you in a small way, with just a few helpful hints, or plan every last detail and oversee the event itself, or even somewhere in between. Together we can establish what it is you desire and I will help to create it.

I left school after attaining 7 As and 2 Cs at GCSE and followed my love for horses. I began working in the horseracing industry as a rider and groom and rode in races as an apprentice jockey. After deciding that I really wanted to follow a career path that was more mentally stimulating, the logical area was event planning. I thoroughly loved the whole planning process of my own Wedding and realised that I could use my exceptional organizational skills to help other people by saving their time and worry by organising events for them.
My own wedding went by very smoothly and a great time was had by all who attended. The venue had great photo opportunities indoors if the weather had not permitted us from using the lovely gardens and the horse and carriage had a hood that we could have used in case of rain, thankfully the weather was fine and the back-up options were not necessary. It is these contingency plans that I am assisting my friend with, for her Wedding this year.
I can find your venue, organise the catering and beverages, entertainment, decoration, invitations and attire. I can also help find accommodation if necessary or organise activities and offer guidance. I will be as involved as necessary for each individual client at every specific event to ensure it is an unforgettable occasion for all.


My services include every aspect of planning weddings, whether it is a Civil Partnership or a Religious ceremony. I provide the same level of service for all different types of event, such as birthday parties, christenings, honeymoons and anniversary parties as well as corporate functions like team building weekends, product launches and work parties.
I provide a variety of services to suit each individual’s needs. I can simply give a consultation for guidance and advice about which vendors are ideal for a specific purpose and answering any other questions. I can also take care of the entire organization of the event from start to finish. This includes finding out exactly what is desired and organizing all of the individual details to suit the specific event. I can book, direct and co-ordinate the different services and vendors. I will over-see the event, quickly dealing with any problems that occur, ensuring the smooth running and alleviating any stress from the client. I can also offer a service somewhere between these extremes and tailor my services to each individual.
As an independent event planner, I provide an unbiased opinion of every imaginable aspect of the event including venues, florists, hair stylists, entertainers, musicians, caterers, decorators, marquee hire, invitations, photography, travel, accommodation and more. Due to the nature of my business, I should be able to negotiate discounts for most of these aspects and part of my service is passing these discounts on to the client.
