What can I expect from a Consultation?
Either in person, or over the phone. we can talk through your wedding plans in a little more detail and establish the areas in which you may require assistance in the planning or styling of your wedding. Based on our discussions, I will return to you a tailored proposal specifically designed to suit the level of professional assistance you require. Take your time to look over the proposal at your leisure, and I will work with you to address any queries. When you are completely satisfied, simply return the signed proposal along with the agreed deposit to secure your date, and I will commence any tasks identified.
How many weddings do you plan per year?
I only take on a limited number of “full planning” weddings per year, although I have involvement in a great number more on a smaller scale (for example, on the day coordination only, or styling and set up). Additionally I never book more than one wedding per weekend, to ensure my complete attention to each couple’s wedding.
Do you offer payment plans?
Absolutely! I am happy to offer the following payment arrangements:
For services totalling £1000 or more, I offer the facility for any payment due to be made over 3 instalments (35% payable upon signing of the proposal, 30% at the midpoint between signing the contract and the date of the wedding, and the remaining 35% due one month before the wedding itself). For services booked at least 12 months in advance of the wedding date, I also offer a monthly payment plan for complete flexibility.
For services totalling up to £1000, I require a 30% deposit upon signing the proposal, with the remainder payable one month prior to the wedding date.
*Please note that the payment arrangements above do not apply to my venue search or wedding design services (if taken independently), and payment must be made at the point of signing the proposal. Full payment will also become due upon signing the proposal where services booked less than one month prior to the wedding date.
Do you take a commission from suppliers you recommend?
As a member of the Best Practice Association of Wedding Planning & Event Management, I follow the protocol of never taking a commission or fee from suppliers, thus ensuring impartiality and that any suppliers are recommended due to their unique skills and talents. I will provide you with recommendations which I feel represent the best value within your budget, and ensure that any discounts that I may negotiate are passed directly on to you.
What about insurance?
I hold Public Liability Insurance providing cover for up to £1 million (extended to £5 million for large scale weddings and events). Please note that this doesn't negate the need for your own wedding insurance to cover you in the event of unforeseen circumstances (for example accident, illness or bereavement), and doesn't cover any other suppliers.
