Frequently Asked Questions

We are proudly based in Co Durham, nestled in the charming town of Chester Le Street. However, our services extend far beyond our local area. We travel the length and breadth of the country, and even venture abroad for destination weddings, wherever our clients need us to handcraft their most special days. Whether you’re envisioning an intimate ceremony in the countryside or a grand celebration overseas, we’re dedicated to bringing your dream wedding to life, no matter the location.
As a wedding planner, we offer a range of services tailored to meet the unique needs of each couple. These include full-service wedding planning, partial planning, day-of coordination, vendor management, budget planning, timeline creation, and more. We work closely with our clients to ensure that every aspect of their wedding day is meticulously planned and executed to perfection.
Absolutely! Marquee weddings hold a special place in our hearts, and we have extensive experience planning and executing them to perfection. In fact, on average, at least 50% of our couples choose to host their weddings at-home or at exclusive-use marquee wedding venues. With over 10 years of experience in the industry, we’ve worked with a wide range of marquee styles, including sail and Sperry tents, glass conservatories, orangeries, traditional wooden frames, and clearspan structures. Whatever your vision may be, we have the expertise and creativity to bring it to life in the stunning setting of a marquee.
Absolutely! We believe that the wedding experience extends far beyond the main event, which is why we offer comprehensive support for pre and post-wedding events as part of our Full Wedding Planning service. Whether you’re planning a welcome dinner to kick off the festivities or a post-wedding brunch to bid farewell to your guests, we’ll work closely with you to bring your vision to life and ensure a seamless experience from start to finish.
Our approach to travel and accommodation costs depends on factors such as your location and the destination of your wedding.

Our goal is to ensure clarity and transparency throughout the planning process, so you can make informed decisions about your wedding budget.
We are fortunate to collaborate with some of the finest suppliers in the industry, enabling us to recommend those who align with your vision and exhibit exceptional skill and dedication. While we do have preferred suppliers based on our positive experiences with them, the decision to use them ultimately rests with you. Your wedding is a reflection of your unique style and preferences, and we are here to facilitate your ideas and decisions. That said, we are always open to working with new suppliers, particularly those who share a similar aesthetic and ethos to our own. Our priority is to ensure that your wedding day is a true reflection of your love story, crafted with care and attention to detail, using suppliers that resonate with your vision.
We understand that sticking to a budget is important for our clients, which is why we offer budget planning services as part of our wedding planning packages. We help couples establish a realistic budget based on their priorities and guide them in allocating funds to different aspects of their wedding. Additionally, we leverage our network of trusted vendors to negotiate favorable pricing and discounts whenever possible.
Absolutely! Finding the right vendors is crucial to creating the perfect wedding day, and we’re here to help. We have established relationships with a network of talented and reliable vendors in the industry and can recommend those that best align with our clients’ preferences and budget.

Our team is experienced in handling unexpected issues and emergencies with professionalism and efficiency. We develop detailed contingency plans and have backup solutions in place for common challenges that may arise. On the wedding day, we remain calm under pressure, troubleshoot any issues that arise, and ensure that the event continues to run smoothly, allowing our clients to enjoy their special day without worry.
What sets us apart is our commitment to providing personalized and attentive service to each couple we work with. We take the time to understand our clients’ vision, preferences, and priorities, and tailor our services to meet their specific needs. Our attention to detail, creativity, and dedication to excellence ensure that every wedding we plan is a reflection of our clients’ unique love stories and exceeds their expectations.

We offer a range of packages tailored to meet different budgets and needs, from full-service planning to day-of coordination and everything in between. During our initial consultation, we’ll discuss your vision, requirements, and budget to provide you with a personalized quote that aligns with your expectations.
