What is your most memorable wedding?
I once planned a wedding in London with a £4k budget. Proving no task is impossible - the perfect wedding is out there for everyone!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
authentic, elegant, romantic, timeless, bespoke
What about your business are you most proud of?
The high level of personal service we give to each client.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Write a wish list and compare it to your budget. Is it realistic? Use your wish list to prioritise your spending. You don't have to include every element your great aunt thinks a wedding should have!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Place name cards written by a child close to the couple. Wobbly child's handwriting is the cutest!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We'll have a chat on the phone and go over your ideas. Then I'll create a proposal and quote for you. We'll then talk again, I'll make any adjustments and provide you with your bespoke styling booklet. We'll keep in touch until the big day, when the Oak and Opal team will arrive at your venue to set up.
What are the decorative trends with brides currently?
Earthy tones are big at the moments: beiges, rusts etc. There is a big trend for dried florals and our seagrass placemats are our most requested item!
What is your signature finishing touch?
Place settings. A beautifully laid table place makes guests feel special and gives a wow factor when sitting down for the wedding breakfast. I love creating unique ways to pair napkins, charges, accessories and place names.
What decoration do you think every wedding needs?
Stunning place settings.
