With the average wedding taking 250 hours to plan, and the average event taking 60 hours to plan, have you got the time? I aim to take the stress off your hands so I can focus on planning your event, with you in the driving seat, and you can focus on enjoying your event. I work closely with clients to bring their vision to reality and creating memorable events.

I strive to offer all my client's friendly, professional and cost effective planning services.

I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Drama and I have experience planning and coordinating a variety of events. I also have a background in project support so I have a great understanding of project planning and delivering to deadlines and professional standards.

I take pride in my ability to plan, manage and coordinate events.

When planning your event I have an extensive list of contacts to utilise. I am based in London but happy to work in surrounding areas.

Services

Complimentary Consultation

This is an opportunity to have a nice relaxed chat about your dream wedding. We can discuss themes, colour schemes, any cultural or religious aspects you want to include in the wedding, possible venues, guest numbers etc. either from the comfort of your own home or a location of your choice.

After the consultation I’ll have a better idea for the type of wedding you want and can start considering themes, styles and venues. I will then produce a proposal which will detail ideas discussed during the consultation and a quotation for the level of service requested.
