Hooray!

You’ve said ‘YES’ to that all-important question and congratulations are definitely in order!

Whether it’s new news or you’ve been basking in the engagement glory for a while now, planning a wedding or civil ceremony can be a very daunting task with a seemingly never-ending list of considerations and jobs to tick off. When you add into the mix trying to be more eco-friendly in your decisions, time can easily slip away as you find yourself getting buried in supplier research and realising that convenience and sustainability unfortunately don’t tend to go hand-in-hand!  

As your eco-conscious wedding planner I am on hand to help you plan your wedding with as much input and advice along the way as you desire, ranging from comprehensive full planning to popping up as a supportive lean-to in those last few weeks. Whatever stage of the planning journey you’re at and whatever size your dream celebration may be, my flexible service options give you a professional to call on when you need it, whether it’s for reassurance, inspiration, advice or just an ear to listen.

Service Region and Inclusivity

Adhering to the ethos of the business I encourage the use of local suppliers for your special day, therefore my in-person eco wedding planning services are offered to those marrying within Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, or just over the friendly neighbouring county borders. Should you be beyond these areas I’d be happy to pass on the details of any fellow sustainable wedding planners I know closer to your home, so please do get in touch. Additionally, my Wedding Wisdom 1:1 option is available via video call regardless of where in the UK you live or plan to marry, providing personalised eco-ethical advice to suit you and your day.

My services are welcoming of all couples, regardless of age, gender, gender identification, ability, sexual orientation, race, religion or culture. Personally I identify with her/she and I am proud to champion equality and inclusivity.

Full Planning

Full planning is the most comprehensive package and sees me join you for the whole process … although don’t worry, I won’t be dulling your newlywed glow by popping up as a honeymoon addition!

My full planning package will gently guide you every step of the way; from helping you collate your ideas and create your personalised vision for your day, right through to its seamless execution and ensuring the day leaves no trace other than a lifetime of perfect memories.

Through a series of meetings and with the odd questionnaire thrown in too, I take the time to really get to know you both so we can embark on a planning journey that’s centred around your personalities and values and produces your day, your way.

Full Planning includes:

  • Free no obligation initial consultation at a convenient time and location
  • Unlimited communication via email, phone, video call or WhatsApp, and further consultations to keep you fully in the loop

On the Day Co-ordination

You’ve got this far, you’ve put countless hours of work in and had millions of emails flying around, but now the doubts might be starting to set in. Have you remembered everything? Will you be able to relax and enjoy the day without worrying whether the catering team have arrived? Will your sustainable and eco-plans be upheld by everyone in the pressure of the day?

Having planned your own day, the on the day co-ordination package sees me take over the reins with 4 weeks to go. I’ll walk you through your plans for the day with a fine tooth comb, reassuring you that everything is finalised or helping to safeguard against any of those pesky logistical details that might have been accidentally overlooked.

From here, I’ll liaise with all of your suppliers and bring the detailed schedule neatly together ready for a seamless day. With set up, on the day, and pack down coverage included, you’re left to simply enjoy the preparation time, every detail of the day, and the newlywed glow, all without a moment’s stress.

Intimate Weddings & Elopements

Whilst micro weddings might be micro by name, they are far from micro when it comes to the amount of opportunities available, the decisions to be made and the quantity of planning hours required to make your vision a reality. As such, small but perfectly formed weddings deserve a small and perfectly flexible wedding planning package!

This intimate wedding and elopement option is ideal for you if you’re dreaming of a beautifully personal celebration within Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire or surrounding areas and have chosen up to 30 of your nearest and dearest to share your treasured day with. In recognition of the inherently unique nature of small weddings and elopements, this package is designed to provide essential support with optional add-ons for the creation of a unique planning service built specifically with your celebration at its heart.

To deliver the very best personal and sustainable celebration this package is designed to support the planning of intimate weddings or elopements that are due to occur at least 2 months after your enquiry, but please get in touch to discuss the possibility of tailored support if your celebration is occurring in under 2 months.

Intimate Wedding and Elopement Planning includes:

  • Free no obligation initial consultation at a convenient time and location
  • Frequent communication via email, phone, video call or WhatsApp, plus further consultations to keep you fully in the loop
  • Supplier searching and planning for up to 5 categories (i.e. photography, catering, celebrant, florist, but NOT including venue searching)
  • Additional supplier recommendations for any remaining categories, starting with access to my trusty suppliers list and always with your personal vision and eco-credentials at the centre
  • Budget management
  • Detailed wedding day schedule and logistics preparation

Wedding Wisdom 1:1

My Wedding Wisdom 1:1 is fully tailored to you! Maybe you’re fully embracing the process of planning your own wedding and loving the exciting decisions it brings but would like some guidance and reassurance that you’ve got everything under control? Maybe you’ve got a vision for your day but want inspiration about some eco-friendly additions or alterations? Are you getting in a muddle over some of the legal ceremony aspects or wedding jargon?

Starting with a detailed questionnaire sent via email, I make every effort to get to know you, your wedding plans, and your wedding queries in advance of our meeting, allowing me to really maximise the personalised advice and suggestions I provide. During our 2 hour meeting, either face-to-face at a convenient location (distance dependent) or via video call, we will discuss the nitty gritty of your wedding plans and you’ll receive guidance and invaluable reassurance focused on you and your unique day. To round things off nicely, you’ll even be issued with a meeting summary or call recording for reference as you tackle the next stage of your wedding adventure.

Investment: £120 for 2 hours

If we don’t use your full 2 hours the time can be carried across to further 1:1 video call meetings (minimum of 15 minutes) to use as and when needed up until your wedding day, giving you the flexibility to schedule a call with a professional at any stage of your wedding planning process.

Should you decide to opt for further 1:1 sessions, select one of our planning packages following your Wedding Wisdom 1:1, or choose this as an add-on to an already booked planning package, half the price of your 1:1 will be deducted from the fees payable.
