Planning a wedding can be stressful. Organising an event of any kind is hard work, but your wedding day is weighted with even more meaning and it needs to be memorable for all the right reasons.
The couples we work with welcome the input and support of a professional wedding planner, turning to us for help with all or part of their wedding planning.

Wherever you are on your wedding planning journey, we have a service to suit your needs, reducing stress and ultimately making your life easier.
Our complimentary consultation will help you refine your ideas, identify your priorities and focus on the overall look and feel of your celebration. Based on this, we can provide full wedding planning support or a few hours of assistance to help bring your vision to life.
If organising everything yourself has become a little overwhelming or you're simply running out of time, we can step in during the final few weeks to tie-up loose ends and make sure everything runs smoothly – leaving you to relax and enjoy your wedding day.
When you have a demanding job or a hectic lifestyle, the idea of spending every spare moment meeting potential suppliers and visiting venues may not be appealing or practical, especially if you're planning your wedding from overseas. We can assist with initial negotiations and the co-ordination of your wedding venue and all your suppliers.
Not only will we work with you to ensure you have a clear idea of your wedding budget, we'll help you stick to it too. With an array of incredible contacts in the wedding industry, we can help you achieve real value for money by selecting the right suppliers to fulfil your dreams without overspending.
Along with exceptional organisational skills, we provide creativity, inspiration and a wealth of ideas to help with the styling and design of your wedding day.
Working closely with you to personalise your celebration as much as possible, we'll use your passions, hobbies and tastes to inform the ideas we put forward, helping you create a wedding that perfectly reflects who you are and the things you love.
We want the couples we work with to feel special and we believe that going the extra mile is the only way to do business.

''The calmest pre-wedding ever,' said my experienced hair stylist on the morning of our wedding. 'Have you really got 150 guests coming (and 60 more in the evening) and it's all so under control?!'
'We should have a Val for every day in our lives,' said my new gorgeous step-daughters after Val's on the day service.
We were left to focus on the important things - thanks to Val - and we all had an emotionally poignant, inclusive and fantastic day.' - Amanda and Richard
