Every wedding is unique, and so are the requirements of the couples I work with. The services I offer are tailored to each stage of the planning process, and can either be taken individually, or combined with other services to create a bespoke package. Guide pricing is included for each element, although the final price quoted may be higher or lower depending on the level of assistance required in each area, and the number of services taken.
Locating the perfect venue for your ceremony and reception is where the planning process begins, and as such an integral part of the day is arguably one of the most time consuming aspects of planning a wedding.
After an initial consultation to ascertain your style, budget and estimated number of guests, I will produce a short list of suitable options for you to choose from, before arranging viewings, which I will be happy to attend with you. When you have selected your preferred venue, I will assist you with negotiating the contract, running through the finer details and reviewing the final quotation to ensure you receive the very best deal.
