Even more stunning by the creative flair of Steph!
What the Bride wants is the 'go-to' wedding planner. Steph has been so straight forward to deal with and came up with some great ideas for decorating the venue for my daughter and son-in-law's wedding on 14/01/20. The venue - The Mill Barns near Bridgnorth - is a beautiful venue and was made even more stunning by the creative flair of Steph! I would highly recommend What the Bride Wants to anyone looking to hire a wedding planner - Steph is amazing! Thank you for helping to make the day so perfect.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Every wedding is different and unique to couples and they are all special in their own way. This is what I love about what I do.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am lucky in the sense I am able to run my small business and this is what I am proud of.

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

Don't stress over the small things, everything will fall into place and your day will be perfect.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Once I receive an enquiry from you as a couple, I will liaise with you both as to your requirements for your special day. Once decor has been decided, to secure your date, I ask for a deposit, usually 20%. I will forward you a receipt to confirm the deposit and balance. You can contact me at any point with any questions no matter how small or trivial they seem. I ask for confirmation of numbers 4 weeks before the date as I know numbers can fluctuate so 4 weeks before you should have a good idea. I liaise with the venue as to when is a suitable time for me to dress the venue. I liaise with the venue as it generally takes a little stress away from you both and you can focus on getting wedding ready.

What is the best themed wedding you have worked at?

I have had many varieties of themes but the biggest event and one that stands out is Great Gatsby theme. It was very sophisticated and it did look stunning with the gold, black and white colours.
