The first step is to meet for a chat. This can be at a time and a place of your choosing and as simple as this sounds, the purpose of the meeting is to get to know each other. I need you and your partner to feel completely comfortable working with me and I need to know that I can work with you. Face to face meetings are preferable, but should circumstances prevent this, our initial meeting can be conducted via facetime or skype.
I like these meetings as they allow me to find out who you are and to hear your love story, as well as your hopes and dreams for your perfect wedding. They also allow me to understand the dynamics of your relationship with each other and your nearest & dearest, your work schedules, the demands on your time and most importantly, how I can help relieve any stresses and pressures so that you can both relax and enjoy the whole process through to your special day.
No two meetings are the same. You may wish to discuss your ideas in detail and any plans you have made so far or you may wish to just have a general discussion about your requirements. I will ask you for some basic information regarding your wedding and together we will agree on the level of service you need me to provide.
Following our meeting, you can then make an informed decision. I do understand that most couples meet at least one other Wedding Planner before making their decision. I just ask that you let me know in a timely manner.
Step 2 - Confirming your booking. Once you have decided you want to go ahead, I will issue you with a contract detailing the package you have booked, the agreed duties I will execute as your planner and my terms and conditions. Both you and your partner will be required to sign the agreement and return a copy along with a 50% deposit. Once the deposit has been received and payment has cleared, your wedding date will be secured.
Step 3 - The fun begins! Depending on the package you have chosen, we will set a date for our first planning meeting and off we go. I will be at your disposal via telephone, text or facetime from 9am to 9pm Monday to Friday and email 24/7 throughout the entire planning process unless otherwise agreed.
Final step - The Wedding Day!! No matter which level of planning assistance you have booked, I will be there on your day. I will oversee the entire day from first thing through to the evening celebration. All you have to do is relax and enjoy.
