Full Description
Planning a wedding can be fun, but also time consuming and over whelming, with busy day to day lives. There's hours of research, to do lists, tasks, follow ups, emails, phone calls, invites, bookings, planning, setting up and so much more. You have to be creative, organised and have an eye for detail and most importantly the passion and commitment to do it… and that’s where we come in! We have had over 15 years’ experience planning events and pride ourselves on delivering memorable, timeless and bespoke weddings designed with a personal touch to all our couples. We know that no two events are the same, so each couple receive an initial consultation prior to us starting our planning journey together. We offer a range of services including a bespoke service which is tailored to individual requirements, in addition we offer partial and full wedding planning services and an on the day co-ordination and also a venue decorating service. We also offer supplier and venue recommendations. Champink are a twin sister duo based within the 4 counties areas. Both with a passion and commitment to planning weddings. We enjoy getting to know our couples on a personal level and ensuring they have the best and most memorable day. We can also arrange proposals and engagement and anniversaries parties with an extra special touch.

Every bride to be needs this
I didn’t know where to start with wedding planning, Jo came in and helped me think about what it was I did want as well as what I didn’t. She offered recommendations, for prices, offered suggestions. She made sure at each part I was sure it was what I wanted and also made sure I got the best price.

Wedding suppliers event
I was involved in a Photo Shoot event that Jo organised recently. Jo put together a team of her trusted local suppliers and organised the shoot to perfection. Everyone knew where to be and when to be there and Jo's attention to the details was something that really stood out. When you know you have someone in charge that will worry about even the little things on your behalf, you know you are about to have a great event!

Above and beyond my expectations
I met Jo at an event evening. Her manner was professional and very friendly, she was approachable very helpful, always smiling and willing to help me with all my wedding enquires, answered all my questions with honesty and professionalism. I am honoured to be part of her journey and she will be a huge success in the wedding and events profession. Most of all I have gained a friend and I always recommend her.
