Real Weddings | Beth & Phil

 

Beth and Phil got in touch to help plan their U.K. wedding whilst living in Dubai, meaning all communication had to be arranged via email and Skype. Having worked with several couples from oversees, I'm fairly accustomed to not meeting in person until later in the planning process - however I quickly learned that the couple hadn't actually viewed their chosen venue in person either, and had booked it upon recommendation by a family member (eek!) Cue numerous venue visits in the months leading to the wedding to electronically provide walk-through videos, floor plans and visuals to show how each are would be set up on the day. The digital online planning software I use was a total godsend throughout this process, as it allowed Beth and Phil to receive real-time updates (despite the timezone differences), keeping them in the loop each step of the way.

Beth and Phil were a total joy to work with throughout the planning process. From the outset they had a clear vision as to how they wanted the day to look, but needed help logistically bringing everything together to make that vision a reality. They were open to suggestions, and instantly clicked with a number of suppliers I recommended to them. We built a great rapport in the months leading up to the wedding, and I'm honoured to now call Beth a firm friend.

I am super proud of how everything turned out on the day, and I had the fortune of working with some AMAZING suppliers, all of whom were ready to pitch in should the weather throw a spanner in the works! Special thanks to Holly and the team at The Matara Centre for all their support and hard work on the day, and to Sam Gibson for his incredible photography (I still can't keep looking back over these gorgeous images!)
