Recently I launched Finest Detail Weddings, offering bespoke wedding planning with a personalised service. The planning services I offer aim to keep your wedding plans focused, within budget and with less stress.
So how and why did I decide to become a Wedding Planner? September 2011 saw all the wedding plans I had made for my big day come to fruition. The months I had spent meticulously planning my day, covering every detail didn't go unnoticed, with many of my guests complimenting me on the little touches I had made. One guest even said she wished I had helped her plan her big day - now that was a compliment! Good cheer aside, there was the little niggly bits that happened on my day that threatened to spoil things, for the perfectionist in me. Putting all your trust in your suppliers and venue is a little daunting but when I noticed things like my free bar suddenly charging guests and the starters coming out melted, the beginnings of an idea were sown.
So it was whilst on Honeymoon in Mauritius, over a beautifully romantic candlelit meal looking out to sea, I announced to my husband that I would like to start a wedding planning business. I loved the buzz and energy that came with planning my wedding and felt passionate about ensuring other couples learnt from what I had experienced along the way and from what my friends and family had experienced too at their weddings. Don't get me wrong I don't claim to be an expert in all things wedding, after all there are plenty of established planners out there who have more experience than I but don't write me off just yet. Everyone starts somewhere and I am realistic enough to know that it will be a long and rewarding journey to establish myself in what is a very competitive industry – but I'm ready and am really looking forward to helping couples plan their wedding perfectly.
