Full Description
It’s YOUR wedding day, and it’s going to be the happiest day of your life. But you need help making sure it’s your day and that it’s everything you’ve ever imagined. You’ve been known to be the one who goes along with other people’s plans and want everyone to have an amazing time. But this is YOUR wedding, so when it comes to your own ideas, it’s time to do it your way. Your time to shine! IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY. YOU CAN HAVE YOUR WEDDING YOUR WAY. I bet, the minute that you got engaged, everyone was so excited for you, there’s no doubt of that! But as soon as you said what you wanted your big day to look like, the raised eyebrows started; the “are you sure” comments started rolling in and it’s left you wondering if this is going to be a day for you and your beloved or a day to please everyone else? A stunning, glass venue with light flooding in. Rich, luxurious, shiny leaves & foliage surrounding you along with tropical flowers of vibrant colours. Filled with personal touches that are a true reflection of you. You know what you want, so why shouldn’t you be able to have it? You CAN have that beautiful, perfectly personal wedding day. So come on, take my hand & let me lead you to the alter, stress-free & enjoying your engagement! With 3 services on offer, there's something for everyone. Be it full wedding planning, on the day wedding coordination, or wedding styling coordination.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Beckie
Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by Emerald Orchid Weddings. I'm Beckie, & I ADORE my job. Every love story is gorgeous, but yours is my favourite :) So, having read the info all about me, shall we have a chat over a cuppa & cake about just what YOUR perfect day looks like? Doesn't have to ALL be about weddings - when I'm not planning, I can be found drinking tea, collecting Irregular Choice shoes, and making rude comments about Tom Hardy. See you soon! Bx

Hi Beckie, I just wanted to get back in touch with you and thank you again for everything you have done for us with regards to our wedding day.

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

A 3 week turn around for a terminally ill groom (I did it, it was gorgeous but heartbreaking - esp when he died so soon after)

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Luxury, stress-free, approachable, uncompromising, as-unique-as-you

What about your business are you most proud of?

My ability to remain calm under pressure. I've sorted MANY wedding near-disasters because of this skill, so ensuring the day runs smoothly for all. I then have a restorative cup of tea for the nerves ;)

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

Keep organised!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Father of the groom had died a few years before. Step-dad wore father's favourite pair of shoes to walk her down the aisle. Mother of (a different) bride had died in her childhood. Bride had a picture of her mum on a chain on her bouquet. At the moment she started walking down the aisle, she kissed mum's pic & told her she loved her. I have so many more gorgeous experiences I can share too but these always make me cry just remembering them.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We start with a call - be that Zoom, or phone. Or we can meet face-to face if you're in London, Milton Keynes or Bedford. We chat, purely chill, about you. Your relationship, your story, your likes & dislikes, and how you want your perfect day to look (if you've got this far in the process - don't worry if not!) Then we look at how I can take you from the whisper of an idea, through to a perfectly-personal wedding. I send over a detailed quote, along with checklists & info, & then you book me! (25%, via card or BACS, via safe payment gateway of Stripe) Once you've booked me, I'm your little pocket rocket. You can contact me at any point, but immediately afterwards it's me doing the legwork. the trawling & calling. The asking & chasing. I info gather, passing each supplier to you for your information & attention. I remove the stress, leaving you with final decisions to make but NOT the in between frustration. This repeats through the whole time of your engagement, and then the day of the wedding, I'm right there with you. I coordinate, direct, oversee, accept deliveries, keep the catering staff updated on the days proceedings, answer guest's questions, announce you as you enter the room for the first time as married couple...EVERYTHING you need for your day to be as perfect as you are. There's obviously a lot more to the processes, this is just a very brief overview of the full planning service! Happy to answer any questions that you have :)

What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?

For groom's horse to be waiting at the end of the aisle with his husband to be as a surprise.

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

Planning like a demon! Plan B up my sleeve (along with a plan C), and my HUGE Filofax of suppliers to hand should I need to fill an unexpected gap through a no-show.

What do you love most about your job?

Don't stress the small stuff. No one else will notice, & it'll just upset you & tarnish your memory of your gorgeous day.

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

When you start walking down the aisle - I ALWAYS cry!! I also love that first look you get of your venue all set up, and the fact you see that dream that started on a moldboard has come to reality.
