"We can't get over what a fabulous job you did. It was absolutely perfect, exactly what we were hoping for but not only that, you made us feel so comfortable on the day.
You have such a kind manner, it shines through and everyone couldn't stop talking about how lovely you were. You were so in control during rehearsal and the morning of the wedding day, we just knew things would go smoothly.
Thanks so much for stepping in so last minute, ..You're going to make many couples so happy, you're the perfect person for the job." - Emily & Mike

It will be the most magical day of your life !
Having worked with wedding planners and as a bridal party co-ordinator for many years, I understand that a wedding doesn't just happen, it is usually planned over many months, involving different people, various elements and lots of decisions !
As the wedding ceremony is the focal point of the day, it's important to have someone alongside who really understands how to weave together your ceremony. As well as your love story and personalised vows, I can also include any rituals, or acknowledgements to your own cultural heritage or beliefs. Whether you want fun and informal, elegant and ritualistic, religious or non-religious, I will create a joyful ceremony that is uniquely yours.
I would consider it an honour and privilege to work with you to create your bespoke ceremony; to make this memorable event a beautiful, professional and above all, joyful occasion.
What happens next..
When you have decided on your date and venue, contact me so we can have our first chat, either online or face to face.
I will ask for a booking fee to reserve your special day.
When the booking's secured, I'll send you my wedding questionnaire, where you can tell me all about yourselves. What you leave out or put in is completely your choice. From this I can create your beautiful ceremony, scripted to suit your personalities and your unique love story.
Around two months before your wedding, I will send you the first draft of the ceremony, giving us plenty of time to make any necessary changes.
A week before your wedding, I will send you the final completed script, which will be printed and used for your ceremony.
If previously arranged and if distance allows, I will join you at the venue the day before the wedding to go through the rehearsal with you, so there are no surprises on the day!

On the wedding day .....
AI will arrive a couple of hours ahead of time to prepare the ceremony area, check on you both, head off any last minute issues, check music, mic, confetti and meet any people taking part in the ceremony.
Then it's ceremony time!
I'll make sure the bridal procession is timed to perfection and deliver your ceremony. I'll also organise the confetti moment, either at the recession or during the reception if required.
After the ceremony when you are relaxing with your guests, I'll have a glass of refreshment - hopefully have a lovely photo taken with you - and quietly slip away.
One thing I have learned over the years is that regardless of the type of wedding, size, style or budget, each one should be uniquely beautiful – because each couple have their own love story. This is why I believe it is so important that the ceremony is inspired and led by YOUR experiences and personalities.
