THANK YOU! It was a weekend that neither of us, or our guests will ever forget!
My advice to anyone getting married is to 100% get a wedding planner, and get Linzi!! We contacted Linzi in 2019 with the brief of wanting an entire bank holiday weekend affair - where people could camp or stay in more luxury accommodation and stay with us for the whole weekend - somewhere in between a festival/a family fun day and a rugby tour! She came back with a list of venues and the one we finally chose was PERFECT. We never would have found it without her. We had a quiz on the Friday, a wedding on the Saturday and inflatables and a ceilidh on the Sunday. Linzi helped sourced ALL of the suppliers and managed the event from beginning to end. Probably the best example of how amazing she is was when our inflatables supplier dropped out 2 days before the event. She didn’t tell us until she had sourced a replacement bucking bronco/laser quest bouncy castle and slide. AMAZING. She was around all day to tell us where we needed to be and coordinate everything. This was fantastic and just allowed us to let go of all responsibility and just really enjoy our wedding. We both had THE BEST day. All of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to and wanted us to renew our vows so we can do it again next year!! I am mildly neurotic at the best of times and Linzi really supported me through my worries and concerns and countless emails!!! On top of all of this, she and Seb are really lovely people and make you feel very much at ease. We will definitely be keeping in touch! THANK YOU! It was a weekend that neither of us, or our guests will ever forget!

Linzi was hands down the best money I spent out on my whole wedding and I could not recommend her enough!
I chose a village hall for our wedding and although I was pretty organised with the planning, I realised I needed to rely on someone to help on the day whilst I was off getting married and having photos taken etc.. and knew I couldn't rely on the groomsmen! I stumbled across Linzi's website and from our initial phone call knew I needed Linzi in my life and to be part of our day. On our initial call, the pre wedding meeting and the day before Linzi was thinking about things I hadn't even considered or completely forgot about.. like glue for our guest book. Linzi went above and beyond what I ever expected for being on the day coordinator. Linzi was hands down the best money I spent out on my whole wedding and I could not recommend her enough! She took all the stress off my shoulders that I know I would have experienced on the day had it not been for Linzi. Thank you! X

As my husband said on our wedding day and I quote "you're f*****g amazing"
We were lucky enough to have Linzi as our wedding planner and we knew from the start she was the planner for us. Linzi is organised and helped us plan our day with military precision but in very relaxed way. We wanted a chilled barn wedding and that's exactly what we got. We decided on a dry hire wedding and Linzi recommended some amazing suppliers. The day in our eyes went without a hitch but I am sure that was down to Linzi coordinating things behind the scenes. As my husband said on our wedding day and I quote "you're f*****g amazing".

Thanks so much for making our day extra special.
We had the pleasure of Linzi and team helping us with our outdoor wedding. Linzi was fantastic at helping us relax and enjoy the planning of the wedding. She took care of dealing with all the suppliers which meant that we had nothing to worry about on the big day. Linzi brings a wealth of industry experience which means she always has the answer and was always available to answer any questions or give us a helping hand. Her calming and reassuring approach is a must have for any unique or unconventional wedding! Thanks so much for making our day extra special. M+R

… one amazing wedding planner! … Linzi is just outstanding in her organisational ability and calm, friendly approach to everything she does. I can’t thank her enough for all that she did in such a short space of time to help us organise the most fantastically memorable and happy wedding day. We were so lucky to find her!”
