Planning for K & G’s wedding began approximately 8 months prior to the big day. The bride’s mother came to me looking for help with organising virtually all aspects of the occasion. It very soon became apparent that the detail was going to be of the utmost importance to the family which I was delighted about – my ideal clients always appreciate the most tiny details which can make a celebration so much more personal and can also elevate an event from ‘good’ to simply WOW amazing!
M & N asked me to help them plan their wedding four years in advance of their celebrations! It was never meant to be quite such a long build up – but what with them wanting to finish work on their garden, and then the arrival of Covid, it was a long time coming! But the great news is that they still loved their chosen colours and style as much at the end of the planning journey as they did at the beginning! Added to which, I helped them source a man with a digger who levelled off an area within an undulating field adjacent to their house, thereby creating a perfect site for their tent and it certainly had time to settle and for the grass to grow over this lengthy period of time!
My clients wished to celebrate 100 years of being in business by planning a series of different events for Agents, Distributors, customers and staff.
Herewith details of the biggest day of celebration – the Family Fun Day for employees, their families, and pensioners of the company – initially planned for 1150 guests, though in the event, final numbers were less.
For 8 years my team and I organised the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival held annually at Snape Maltings in Suffolk. There, I met the lovely Joey and Katy who have set up HUSK on their farm at Thorington. They prepare much of their own locally grown, reared, foraged and sourced foods and run supper clubs, and can also offer guests a room for the night in their newly converted farm buildings, soon to be augmented with some converted silos. Katy explained that they had offered her brother and wife-to-be the use of their farm for their wedding celebrations, and as they were at the time living on the Isle of Wight, juggling work and coping with a toddler, they were in need of a wedding planner.
