From the very beginning Sam was professional
So we had our special day Saturday and what a day it was. From the very beginning Sam was professional and communicated perfectly. Being a total control freak myself when it comes to presentation and prep, she listened to my vision and literally brought it to life. She put me and my husband completely at ease and i never for a second had a worry about the venue decor. A massive weight off my shoulders. Like a ghost in the night, all requests were done and dusted ready for our arrival to the venue the night before. Sam you have been amazing, me and Jamie literally had the best day. Felt like magic, and everything from our balloons to lights to LOVE letters all contributed to that. Everyone commented how amazing all the little touches were. Worth every penny. Thank you and yours for everything. Cannot recommend this lady enough. Future brides - get booking! 🙌🏽👰🏽👨🏾‍⚖️🥂✨💎

What is your most memorable wedding?

So many to choose from!! I have the ones that got social media recognition from some amazing companies? I have some that the brides were so excited to be a bride that made me even more excited? Some that had some really sad twists yet made them so much more emotional? But my most memorable was probably my own. The flowers didn’t turn up, the car was late and I didn’t have a vicar until 2 days before. All things that we overcame and have given me great stories to share with my brides that everything will all come good and there is no need to worry about a thing.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Proactive, Enthusiastic, Problem Solver, Excited, Crazy.

What about your business are you most proud of?

How much it’s has grown through word of mouth and amazing reviews and customer service. You cant buy that, you have to earn it.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Enjoy every second of every part of it.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After the initial enquiry, I always try and site visit the venue, check that they are happy with the ideas that are being discussed, heights, plug sockets and other boring things that enable me to quote and be genuine from the very beginning. I always give a guide price and a photo of example, but my service is very bespoke and unique to the client and i am always very aware and respectful of any budgets in place. Then the date is saved, communication throughout answering any questions and helping in any way needed. Then the venue is dressed. Beautifully with everything as expected as the couple walk through the doors

What are the decorative trends with brides currently?

Colours mostly, rustic, hessian, blush and mocha, outdoorsy,

What is your signature finishing touch?

Hanging lanterns and lighting every time.

What decoration do you think every wedding needs?

Lighting. Either uplighting on barn walls, festoon or fairy light canopies inside or out? But most certainly lighting.
