There's no denying that I'm a small town, country girl. Born and raised in the market town of Frome, right in the heart of Somerset, my idea of visiting the big city is a day trip to Bath... For those of you living in the city, you may not have considered a country wedding - after all, the city has everything, right? Sure, London may have the Dorchester, but the country brings the calm, the picturesque and not to mention... me!
Whilst I agree that shopping local is something to be encouraged, sometimes the reality is that you simply want something which isn't available to you locally. I truly believe that the biggest reason why couples decide not to tie the knot abroad isn't because of costs, it's because of the lack of control. You can't simply rock up at the venue to remind yourself of what it looks like in the flesh, nor can you necessarily sit down with your suppliers to discuss various options and talk through your ideas with them. The same can be said for those of you dreaming of a country wedding. If you're not familiar with the location, but have set your heart on a venue in the country, it can be just as difficult to know which suppliers to use for your special day. You don't have the security and the ease of relying on recommendations from friends and family, and there's only so much online directories and social media can help you....
That's exactly where I come in.
Whether you've already set your heart on a venue in the country, or need help sourcing one, with my extensive list of local suppliers, I can help you to hand select your stationer, florist, rental linens and dinnerware, as well as any other design-led supplier, all from the comfort of your own home - wherever that may be! My consultations and regular communication thereon in, can be done over skype, email or over the phone. I pride myself on working with you, making sure that I am as involved as much or as little as you need me to be. Design proposals are communicated by way of virtual visual mood boards, scaled floor plans and diagrams alongside a complete list of suppliers who can help achieve the desired look and the associated costs.
To ensure I give each of my couples the time and attention they deserve, I only take on a limited number of clients at one time. Each of my weddings are unique in their own special way - I don't do cookie-cutter styling where 'one size fits all'.
On the day itself and the days leading up to it, I can be where you need me to be, overseeing the set up of your venue and coordinating your chosen suppliers so to ensure that everything looks the way you have envisioned, leaving you to enjoy the festivities with your friends and family.
So whether it's a luxury stately home your envisioning, a rustic barn or a glamorous marquee, I would love to help you to create something truly magical ... a day to cherish forever.
