Do you offer On The Day/Month Of Coordination?
As a stand alone service I no longer offer On The Day or Month of Coordination. I’ve coordinated many wonderful wedding days over the years but as a Creative Wedding Planner the conceptual design and styling of a wedding is what excites me most and I take great pleasure in working with couples from the very beginning to the end.
I highly recommend the following planners who do offer On The Day Coordination in the south east:
Where are you based and do you travel?
I live just within the M25 on the south-east London/Kent borders. I tend to work across London and the home counties; most often in Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Essex and central London. I will travel for a fantastic wedding and venue though! Past weddings have taken me to Cornwall, the Cotswolds and Derbyshire.
How do you calculate your fees?
I charge a bespoke flat fee between 10 and 15% of the total wedding budget for Full Service Planning & Design, with a minimum fee of £4500. Wedding Design & Delivery starts from £3000. We have to go in to much more detail than an initial email for me to give a more accurate quote, but fees are calculated on a number of depending factors- guest numbers, location, whether you already have a venue booked, number of event days etc. After an initial face to face consultation (either in person or via the internet) I will put together a bespoke fee proposal. Consultations are complimentary and non-contractual, so do get in touch to arrange as I’d love to chat further with you.
Are you qualified?
Wedding planning qualifications are not recognised by an official body in the UK, but I trained with the brilliant UK Alliance of Wedding Planners and adhere to their Code of Business Practice. I have Public Liability Insurance to the sum of £1,000,000.
Do you offer work experience or internship placements?
One of the benefits of running my own business is that I am not confined to regular office hours. What this means is that it’s very difficult for me to offer work experience or internship placements. However, I do occasionally require wedding day assistants for dates throughout the year which is a fantastic way to gain experience and an insight in to what the job entails. If you would like to be considered please send through a copy of your CV with a cracking covering letter.
