Unbelievably amazing!
Sam was the wedding coordinator for our wedding in August and she was unbelievably amazing! She was so lovely and made sure that everything thing on the day ran smoothly. We had to postpone our wedding because of COVID and Sam was so helpful with contacting the venue and keeping us in the loop with what was going on. Before the day of the wedding she contacted all of the suppliers to go through timings to make sure the day ran smoothly. On the morning of the wedding Sam was fantastic and did all the little jobs that we were worrying about. This meant that the morning of the wedding was relaxing. Thank you so much Sam, you are such a lovely person and helped us to make our day perfect. We couldn't recommend Sam enough!!

Stress free wedding day
What a lady!!!!! Sam was absolutely amazing from the minute we booked her. Due to the pandemic our first wedding got cancelled in 2020. Sam was very supportive and caring, She stayed in contact throughout and made myself the bride have hope!! When our day finally came in July 2021, she was outstanding everything went smoothly and nothing was too much for Sam she was happy to help in every way!! She was a life saver!! I highly recommend Sam at Southcoast weddings!!! We got married at Sopley Mill and she knows the venue like the back of her hand she works very well with all suppliers! If your looking for a stress free wedding day she is your lady!

Sam was amazing!!! We booked South Coast Weddings for on the day but she did so much more. From the day we booked her, until the end of our wedding day Sam was a total gem. She was there for every little question and down the line, every Covid wobble. When we had to change our date she was able to recommend new suppliers, and her recommendations proved spot on. On the morning of our wedding she helped us to set up and she did a fabulous job when eventually we just had to leave her to it! On the day I didn’t have to worry about anything because Sam was always there ahead of me and the day ran smoothly thanks to her. It really felt like we had a friend there, and we really couldn’t have done it without her. A total star and one of the best!!

What is your most memorable wedding?

I couldn't pick just one. I LOVE every single wedding and the lovely couples, parents and friends I get to meet and spend time with. And yes, I still cry at pretty much every ceremony or during the speeches!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, Organised, Honest, Realistic, Practical

What about your business are you most proud of?

100% client satisfaction

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

There are so many things but it's so nice when friends and family have been involved with making the cake or designing the invitations etc.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

A drink at the pub or a coffee shop with a casual chat to talk about what the couple are looking to achieve for their wedding. The more I can get to know people, the easier it is to get the feel of what they'd like.

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

Having Oompah Loompahs to dance with the guests after the first dance!

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

Keep everything relaxed with constant communication.

What do you love most about your job?

Make a budget before anything else. Then make a 'must-have' list and a 'would-be-nice-to-have' list. This will help you prioritise and keep on track.

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

The wonderful people we get to meet!
