What is included in the Wedding co-ordination on the day package (Peony)?
We tend to work approximately 10 hours on your special day – We will meet and greet your wedding suppliers and make sure everything is set up exactly as you have told me. We are also happy to help with setting up your wedding. We will make sure all guests are seated, and the music is played at the right time when the bride enters the ceremony room. We will ensure guests are in the right place at the right time and that your day runs smoothly. We can liaise with your best man/usher if you would like them to make formal announcements throughout the day and we can advise what to announce.
We are personal assistant to the bride and groom so just tell us what needs doing and we will be there for you.

We will make known any suppliers we have a personal interest in, use legal business contracts, respect copyright from fellow professionals and ensure our public liability insurance is up to date.
Our wedding venue includes a wedding co-ordinator, do we still need a wedding planner?
There are many wedding venues that include a wedding co-ordinator up until the wedding day but not actually on the day. Imagine on your special day, you and your bridal party are rushing around completing essential tasks throughout the day, such as setting up your tables, playing music and moving flowers. This can be very stressful when you should all be relaxing and enjoying the day.

We cost this at 15 % of your total wedding budget or subject to a minimum charge of £3,000.
