Emily helped us planned our special day, she was amazing.
Emily helped us planned our special day, she was amazing. Not only she did she bring our dream to reality but she introduced us to people who could help us along the way. She was thoughtful and kind through the whole process and honestly we couldn’t recommend her more. Emily you really brought our whole day together and made it wonderful it wouldn’t have been the same without you.

On the day she was really helpful coordinating many aspects of the day & often unbeknownst to us
Emily was our point of contact for our wedding at the Worstead Estate and it was great to have someone so diligent at the venue. She helped out with some of the finer details ensuring our plans for the day would run smoothly. On the day she was really helpful coordinating many aspects of the day and often unbeknownst to us – which is a testament to the hidden value of having Emily there on the day. She was a joy to work with and we were so pleased to have someone like this at our chosen wedding venue, a credit to the Worstead team!

Emily helped us in planning and styling our big day in August '23
She was so professional but equally incredibly personable. Taking into account our individual preferences and ideas and helping to bring them to the next level. Emily has such an eye for the little details, many of which I would have completely overlooked without her help. Her knowledge of suppliers within the industry was excellent, pointing us in the right direction for the ideas we had and choices we made. Her care and attention surrounding our wedding was outstanding from the moment we booked, right through to after the big day itself. Our wedding day ran so smoothly, we felt so relaxed knowing Emily had everything in hand. We had no vendors needing our attention or last minute decisions because she handled everything! I would absolutely recommend her services to any future couples.

Throughout our wedding journey Emily has gone above and beyond
We cannot recommend Emily enough! Throughout our wedding journey Emily has gone above and beyond - from prompt communication, attention to detail, co-ordinating our suppliers and really understanding our vision for our big day. On the day Emily ensured we had the best day by looking out for us and our guests - especially quickly adapting from an outdoor ceremony to an indoor ceremony! Emily co-ordinated the change promptly, ensured I was kept dry with plenty of umbrellas, held my dress and looked after my veil and bouquet numerous times on the night! Our day wouldn't have gone as well as it did without Emily - thank you so much Emily, it's been a pleasure to have you co-ordinate our big day x
