As a non-traditional bride, I was looking for a wedding planner that would get the quirkiness that is my (now) husband and I. We are laid back and relaxed, always looking for an opportunity to laugh. After my first meeting with Sama and Helen, I knew instantly that their fun, playful nature would be the perfect fit for our summertime watermelon-themed wedding. Passionate, insightful, diligent and hard-working, Sama and the Utterly Wow team personify wedding planning excellence. As I said probably about 100 times leading up to the big day, booking Utterly Wow to plan and design our wedding was single handedly the best decision we made (outside of you know, getting married and all).

“We really can’t speak highly enough of everything that Sama did for us; she was the glue that held all the component parts of our wedding together. From her knowledge and handling of suppliers to her creativity in making our venue look absolutely perfect, the day really wouldn’t have been the same without her. She was calm when we were overwhelmed, and firm with us when wedding fatigue had set in, and not only did she do so much in making our day so wonderful, she also allowed us to look forward and be excited for the big day because we knew she had everything under control. We’d love to do it all over again, and if we could, the first thing that we’d do is book Sama.”

Sama makes you feel like you’re the one that has her full attention all the time, whether you’re having a catch up meeting or you’ve sent her a rambling middle of the night message because you’re suddenly panicking. I explained all my ideas to her, my likes and dislikes and she creatively, artistically breathed life into my wedding world. Her knowledge of the industry and her experience and expertise was invaluable to me. Even if I had an idea that was too left field, she was open to discussion on it and wasn’t frightened to give her opinion if I’d asked for it in a constructive way. I loved that about Sama’s approach, I felt I could speak to her about any aspect of the wedding.
Linsey & Nick
Having Sama run the show was absolutely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. She dealt with massive traffic delays and late suppliers effortlessly and did an amazing job of keeping us relaxed and stress free. We were so lucky to have a wedding coordinator that is also wonderfully creative and with a great sense of style. We trusted her eye for detail, so we didn’t give her many instructions. Walking into the venue and seeing how she brought our vision to life is something I’ll never forget!
Kay and Sam
Working with Sama during the planning of our wedding was so much fun! She not only interpreted our thoughts and ideas perfectly, turning them to reality, but was incredibly prompt in replying to emails, sourced the most amazing products for us AND MADE beautiful decorations for our special day. We couldn’t have imagined it being more beautiful than it was. Our English Country Garden wedding was perfect in every way and we couldn’t have done it without Sama.
Lucy & John
Sama- you are an amazing, magical wedding fairy sprinkling chilled vibes over everything and I couldn’t recommend you more highly.
