That’s where we come in; to help ease the pressure, give you advice and look after all the logistics so you can enjoy your wedding journey in its entirety.
We have a range of different wedding planning packages dependant on your needs and budget. Once planned, one of our incredible wedding day coordinators will be there to run your day exactly as planned so it's executed flawlessly and to ease any stress on the day.
Month Out Coordination - This package is designed for couples who wish to do most of the wedding planning themselves but want to ensure everything runs as planned and there's no issues on the day.
Signature Planning Package - This option is designed for couples who would still like control over their wedding planning but would love assistance to look after all the finer details and logistics that can become overwhelming.
Full Planning Package - This option is perfect for those who purely want to be presented with information, answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to one person and then pay the invoice at each stage of completion. This is a great option if you are super busy and can’t commit much time to your planning, or perhaps based overseas and want the ease of having one point of contact.
