Incredible star
Oskar is an incredible star in the wedding industry both in Scotland and across the UK. He has a brilliant combination of understanding the creative/design side of a wedding along with the planning and operations element. All of which are fundamental to delivering an excellent wedding day for couples.

His attention to detail is incredible!
There is not a better way to describe Oskar other than the wedding Guru!! He is a true professional and his attention to detail is incredible. No matter what questions or worries my husband and I had he was always on hand to offer answers, support and reassurance. He made sure the run up to our wedding, our wedding day and the day after were as stress free and enjoyable as possible. Even keeping us in check when we had forgotten things. I can honestly can not recommend Oskar highly enough and I will never forget how relaxed and at ease he made us feel.

Absolute Godsend!
When I started planning our wedding I didn’t think I needed a wedding planner. I could not have been more wrong. Oskar was an absolute godsend and took all the stress out of our big day and the months leading up to it. His creativity, problem solving and organisational skills are unrivalled, and his expertise meant not only did our wedding run like clockwork, but it was truly a reflection of my husband and I. Oskar handled everything so seamlessly that there was no stress, even for a control freak like me - my husband and I could just enjoy the day knowing we were in safe hands. Late guests, unexpected snow, wardrobe malfunctions, nothing was too much bother. I cannot recommend his services highly enough. Thank you Oskar!

Approachable and Professional
I can’t recommend Oskar enough to any of my potential brides and grooms. I have been working in the wedding industry as a wedding florist with Oskar for a long time now and always found him so approachable and professional. He is always smiling and can’t do enough for you. I can’t recommend Oskar enough to be involved with your wedding day.
