The Bijou Bride - Bespoke Planning & Styling Services

Creating your dream wedding, whatever your budget.

At Bijou we understand that trawlng through mountains of magazines, finding venues and suppliers in your precious spare time, traipsing around wedding boutiques in search of 'the dream dress', co-ordinating friends and relatives, wrestling with pushy sales assistants and frantically dressing your wedding venue when you should be preparing for the ceremony isn’t every couple’s cup of tea, so we’ve designed something unique… something Bijou.

We specialise in styling and organising unforgettable wedding days that couples can be proud of and most importantly enjoy. If you are in love with Madmen, music festivals or Morocco we'll find everything you need right down to the tiniest detail to guarantee a seamless and authentic wedding theme. And if you don't know where to start, don't worry - we'll get to know you, what you like and love, and provide bespoke theming suggestions to ensure your day stands out from the crowd!
For couples that have already arranged the big things i.e. venue, caterer, flowers but are running out of time (and energy) for the small things such as favours and decor our Personal Shopping Service is just what you need. And for those looking for specific advice or just a shoulder to cry on our hourly consulting service is an affordable option.

It is our mission to ensure your wedding journey is exactly as it should be - perfect from start to finish. Quirky, glamourous, vintage, chic, alternative, rock & roll - who ever you are we'll design a day or look that is personal, unique and utterly unforgettable.


Dream Designer:
This encompasses every visual aspect of the day from flowers to invitations. Starting with an in-depth consultation to get to know you both, I will develop initial design concepts for your big day. Following your review, we will fine tune the details together before I create the grand plan. I also provide a comprehensive list of shopping and DIY recommendations before finally being there on the day to bring the plan to life.

The Works:
Take the stress out of organising a wedding. This full planning package means you will have an expert to hand for the entire process from venue searching to venue dressing and everything in-between. Whatever your heart desires, I will be there to ensure your wedding is quintessentially you.
Minimum fuss. Maximum style.
