Event planning tips

  1. Prior preparation is key

  2. Start planning early - caterers and venues are often booked for up to 2 years in advance

  3. List your ideas either on paper or use something like Pinterest. The more information you can provide, the easier it is for us to estimate accurately and provide an event that matches and exceeds your expectations

  4. Have a backup plan, such as a plan for bad weather. Whilst we have never done a wedding where a wet and windy day has spoilt anyone’s enjoyment, this is generally because a plan was in place, such as providing covered walkways or even simple things like umbrellas
