KIND WORDS

Morag & Piers

“A ‘best in class’ wedding planner. It was tremendous to have the support of Michelle throughout the three months before my marriage, to pull together a big London wedding. Michelle did a fabulous job co-ordinating and marshalling the many and diverse elements, into a wonderful, seamless and successful day. Her constant attention and joyful spirit allowed me to enjoy the run up, as well as the day itself. I don’t know how I would have done it without you”

Hannah & Nick

“Michelle helped lead us through every step of wedding planning from start to finish. Her experience made the whole process so simple! On the day Michelle went above and beyond to ensure the day was perfect. I couldn’t recommend her wonderful work more. She took the majority of the stress away from the planning process and kept us calm and on track throughout. Thank you!

Tasha & Josh

“I reached out to Michelle for on the day wedding co-ordination services after speaking with a few other co-coordinators and I decided to move forward with Michelle due to her friendly and professional nature. She was perfect from day one of planning, making sure she understood exactly what I wanted and how I wanted the day to run. Due to her wealth of experience, she was able to provide recommendations on several suppliers and provide great tips to ensure we would have the perfect day.  On the actual day of the event, I could not thank Michelle enough for her patience and efforts. I learnt after the event there were a couple of problems, which she resolved without having to inform or trouble me during the day. I honestly could not have had a smoother wedding, thank you so much Michelle!”

“From the very first contact with Michelle she was friendly, helpful and informative. Nothing was too much trouble and she made some really useful suggestions as to how to make our day run as we wanted it to. We can’t thank her enough for all of her help in making our day the most wonderful experience. The venue was decorated perfectly and everything ran smoothly. Michelle went above and beyond.”
