What is your most memorable wedding?
Goodwood House where the Bride & Groom arrived by helicopter, and The Polka Dots vocal trio welcomed them by performing their favourite song on the grand steps up to the house. The trio were given looked after by their own butler and was handed champagne as they finished!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The relationships we build with clients means that we have really grown through word of mouth. Some of the venues we are lucky enough to work with are like a dream come true and I have to pinch myself sometimes!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
My tip I give to every couple (and I will give it to you here!) is to remember to take snapshots in your head of perfect moments throughout the day - the event flies by and it makes such a difference to stop, take a moment out, and observe your day! :)
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Gosh, there are so many as each couple is different! From table plans to original first dance songs, to a personal catering flair - I think every couple puts a beautiful personal touch on their day.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Firstly understanding the day and the couple's ideal theme, then very importantly gaining a budget to work within! From there we can source two or three suitable entertainment ideas and present them to the couple for discussion. Once an act has been confirmed, I liaise with the band and then keep in touch with the couple, and will run through timings etc. one final time about a week before the event just to make sure everything goes smoothly on the day.
What is your No. 1 top tip for keeping a crowd entertained?
Give them a conversation starter (during the day when not everyone knows each other), and then in the evening, give them something that is going to keep people dancing!
Where is the most memorable place you have performed?
Hampton Court Palace
