Frequently Asked Questions

  • What qualifications do you hold?

I am a fully certified wedding and event planner. I have a degree in Luxury Wedding Planning, Business start-up, Business Management. And a Diploma in Wedding Planning Level 3. I have over 20 years experience working within the public sector. I also hold a First Aid certificate and Food Hygiene and Food Safety Certificates.

  • What inspired you to become a Wedding Planner?

For me personally it's all about creating something truly magical. Having been a part of several weddings and having witnessed the disappointments of my close family and friends when a supplier didn't deliver what was promised, the photographer wasn't as good as what they thought, they were let down at the last minute, the cake was a disaster, etc. Seeing the way this affected the entire mood of not only the wedding party but their guests as well this was the moment I decided that I would start my own business ensuring that anyone who came to me would not look back on their wedding day with feelings of regret or any disappointment. My goal is to make sure that my clients have a truly magical day that they will remember with fondness for the rest of their lives. Bringing joy and happiness to other people by coordinating the perfect event for them is my drive and the reason I do this work. It's a wonderful feeling to be able to say that you truly love your work, and I'm so pleased that I can say that about my job.

  • Our venue comes with a coordinator, why should we hire a Wedding Planner?

It's true that many wedding venues do now come with what they call wedding coordinators but they are the events managers for the venue only. It is true, they are friendly and warm people but the important thing to remember is that they work for the venue and not for you. Their focus will primarily be on managing their staff, the kitchens and the venue itself, which means that not much attention would be paid on organising your suppliers, ensuring the wedding party knows where to be and when, no timeline for the running of the day would be present which can lead to a lot of confusion and things happening at the wrong time, or worse not happening at all. They may recommend suppliers but they won't have done much research, they won't do any of the running around and schedule appointments like we will do for you. Remember that the events manager works for the venue and we work for you. We work hard to create a working relationship with all our clients ensuring that there is a level of trust between us.

  • Can I afford an Event/Wedding Planner?

Price differs by the services you select and the duration and complexity of your event. It is however my responsibility to keep you expenses at or below your budget level. People often decide to 'do it themselves' because they don't think that they can afford a professional to assist them, or they aren't willing to risk their vision with someone they don't know. Well, the truth is, you can't afford not to. Risk is what planning is all about, and it is more of a risk to go into planning any significant event without a professional. Invest wisely in your wedding, it is after all the most important day of your life, and by using a professional you're ensuring that you are being well taken care of throughout the entire process so you can relax, and end up with wonderful memories that you will treasure for a lifetime.

  • Will hiring you mean that I no longer have control over my wedding?

Absolutely not. I work FOR you, this is your wedding not mine. My goal is to give you the peace of mind that comes with trusting that every detail is taken care of. During  the planning process, I will give you guidance and suggestions, but you make all the final decisions. I will handle as little or as much as you would like.

  • Will you work with suppliers I have already found or ones I really want to work with?

I will gladly work with venues or suppliers, friends or family members you select for your special day. I do have a selection of talented, wonderful venues and suppliers in my database that I can refer, just remember that you are free to select the suppliers of your choice.

  • What forms of payment do you accept? Do you allow payment plans in order for us to spread the cost?

We accept PayPal, Bank Transfer & Cash, and we will work with you on a payment plan that is acceptable for you.

  • Do you have liability insurance?

Absolutely. When you hire us we provide you with proof of all the insurances we hold.

  • Do you take on more than one wedding per day?

No, we never take on more than one wedding per day, that is why we encourage you to secure your date as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
