Party, event or wedding to plan but need help? Don’t know where to start or where to look? Call Help Me Plan It!
Having helped plan events & weddings unofficially for a long time, I thought it was about time I made it official. I know first hand the difference it can make to enjoy an event because the pressure has been taken off so let me do the same for you. Whatever the event size or budget, my organisational skills are second to none & since there is no such thing as a standard event or “typical” client, there is no such thing for me as a “typical” service. After your initial free consultation, I will take the reigns to whatever extent you want me to-from supplier searches to full event support, I want to help turn the ordinary into the extraordinary
I have planned work socials, milestone anniversary and birthday parties (including a 29th birthday which was known as The Anti-30 Party!), retirement events, hen nights and weddings. I have enjoyed doing these informally, watching them develop from a small idea into full fruition. Seeing the enjoyment of the guests at these events, along with the passion I have for organising, makes it a natural progression for me into becoming an event and wedding planning professional.

“In short, Dee is brilliant. We thought planning a wedding was a big scary task. There was so much to think about and we felt more than a little overwhelmed by it all. Over lunch, Dee broke down everything we needed to know into small chunks. She suggested different ways of managing tasks and made the whole thing seem a lot easier and more manageable than it first appeared. We wanted to have the bridal party travel between the church and reception venue via train. This turned out to be a logistical nightmare. Not only did we need to catch two connecting trains, but we had to get everybody to and from the two train stations, while creating a contingency plan if the trains failed to run on time. We gave Dee the approximate end time of the church service and within hours, she had a solid plan in place. We cannot recommend Dee highly enough for both her organisational skills and bubbly character.

“It can be so difficult to find the time for all the wedding finishing touches when life is busy. Pete and I knew we wanted to keep a relaxed and informal feel to our wedding day, but wanted some special finishing touches to personalise it, without spending a fortune - be that in time or money! I had no idea at all how we could achieve this....when Dee came to the rescue! It was lovely to have someone who really listened to how we wanted the day to run and helped us achieve just that. She not only give us brilliant personalised ideas, but even better she actually made them happen for us....stress taken away and just our special, personalised day to enjoy! There is real skill in finding the perfect solution for everyone and knowing how to implement it....I can't recommend Dee highly enough....she has a real talent.

"When we first started to think about planning our wedding day, it was really exciting but also a little overwhelming! There seemed to be so many things to consider. Dee's advice and guidance really helped. She was able to break down the planning into key areas that made it manageable for us and she had lots of useful advice and inspiring ideas to get us started. In the run-up to the big day itself, Dee's support was invaluable. We were making lots of the finishing touches ourselves, but found that we were running out of time to get everything finished. It was brilliant to have Dee’s support as she stepped in to help and sorted out things that we just wouldn't have had time to do otherwise. Dee has all the qualities of a superb wedding planner: she's reliable and organised, she listens and she cares about getting it right for you. We thoroughly recommend her!"
