Just incase you can't be bothered to read the following I would highly recommend Nikki, I can honestly say my wedding day was totally stress free all thanks to her.... This is why: I am a bit of a control freak and although I thought I had organised everything down to the last minute the idea of relying on other people on the 'big day' was worrying me. Nikki became involved just 3 weeks before and I thought she would just be at the hotel on the day to deal with any issues; but she did so much more. At our first meeting it came as a surprise when she came up with a few things I hadn't thought of! It wasn't anything life changing but just simple finishing touches like the cake melting if the weather was hot (it couldn't be easily moved) and who would make sure the presents were kept safe after the reception etc etc. We both left with a sizeable to do list but already I was happier. During the next 21 days Nikki kept in regular contact with me and introduced herself to all of my suppliers. They then knew that any problems should be given to her and not me...phew...a huge weight lifted off my shoulders! The day before the wedding we met at the venue; here Nikki helped us design the layout for the ceremony, go through the music list and ensured the hotel understood our requirements for the following day. I know much more was discussed but I was too excited to take much notice and knew by this point everything was being taken care of for me and I could just enjoy the run up to the best day of my life. On the actual day I saw very little of Nikki but knowing she was around somewhere was enough to let me totally relax. Everyone was in the right place at the right time and the whole day ran like clock work. If there were any problems my husband and I weren't aware of them and we can't express enough just how grateful we are. So many of our guests have commented on how professional, helpful and polite Nikki was at all times; nothing was too much.
