WEDDING PLANNING PRICING AND SERVICE OPTIONS
I understand that wedding planning can be overwhelming enough and therefore want to make my wedding planning pricing as straight forward as possible. It is important that you are able to see, at a glance, exactly what is included in each level of service. This is intended to help you decide which service option will be the best fit for you.
YOUR VISION, WISHES AND DESIRES
A complete inspiration session, during which we will discuss your unique wedding planning goals based on your vision, wishes and desires.
Your wedding day should be an expression of who you are as a couple. During a focussed consultation, I will guide you through a process to ensure your perfect day celebrates who you are as individuals and the journey you are taking as a couple.
BUDGET ALLOCATION AND MANAGEMENT
Correct allocation of your budget, in accordance with your priorities and ongoing management throughout the wedding planning process.

WEDDING PLANNING PRICING - THE COST BENEFIT
In addition to all the expertise, inspiration, organisation, communication and stress relief I naturally offer, I will also work very hard to deliver exceptional value for money in relation to each and every aspect of your wedding.
Whilst some Wedding Planners earn a commission from the vendors they source and recommend on your behalf, I choose to charge a fixed fee and will focus on generating as much additional value as possible for you.
Often, the suppliers I recommend will discount the price of their product in recognition of the fact that I am actively generating business for them. In some circumstances, they may waive certain costs or offer additional products or services on a complimentary basis, thereby generating and delivering exceptional value to you.
A good example of this is a Photographer offering to extend a standard package by including a pre-wedding photo-shoot, second shooter or to stay for a few additional hours after your first dance free of charge, or a Caterer offering to serve complimentary canapes.
Furthermore, my unbiased approach towards vendors ensures that I only recommend people who I believe are the right fit for you.
ALL of the suppliers I source on your behalf would be expected to go the extra mile for you, not only because they want to delight you, but because they also need to please me – which ultimately works in your favour. In a nutshell, you are able to leverage my position in the market and the relationships I have with so many UK based wedding industry suppliers to your advantage.
Not unlike so many other things, the price you pay for a Wedding Planner will be reflective of the service you should expect to receive.
Ultimately, you should expect to pay somewhere in the region of £4,000 to £5,000 for a full wedding planning service. This should afford you an experienced, professional wedding planner with the necessary know-how to handle just about any eventuality, without you even knowing about it.
If a planner advertises the service at a significantly lower price, ask precisely how much experience they have and always request sight of testimonials or better still, ask to speak to previous clients who are able to back this up.
The last thing you want to find yourselves doing is counting the cost either during or after the event as a result of an inexperienced amateur letting you down.
Ultimately, your peace of mind is priceless.
