For some couples, hiring a wedding planner is a no brainer. This might be down to having a very large wedding, getting married overseas or just because they have no idea where to start. But for some couples it’s not always a straightforward decision. In fact I often get contacted by couples who started planning themselves and then realise it’s all too much. So do you really need a planner? Here are the 5 main reasons why you should hire a professional to plan your wedding...

Finally, the news we’ve all been waiting for – a Royal wedding! We were thrilled to hear that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged and this will certainly mean lots of wedding excitement over the coming months here in London and across the UK.
Last week I was back in one of my favourite places, Dubai. For this visit I’d been invited, as a speaker, to the Planners Xtraordinaire Show. This new show is a closed door congress, bringing together the leading luxury wedding and event planners from across the globe. The show was a chance to spend some time with colleagues from all over the world, in this wonderful eclectic industry, and also share some of my knowledge of managing high-profile events.
Heading into the Autumn is always a busy time of year for industry shows and events. This weekend sees Brides The Show take place at the Business Design Centre in Islington, where our good friend Amie Bone is going to be showcasing some spectacular florals. Sadly I can’t make it as I’m heading to Dubai for the Planner’s Xtraordinaire show but I’m looking forward to seeing what breathtaking designs are on show.
The highly anticipated wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews is now just a couple of days away. The high profile couple have chosen to hold their reception at Pippa's parents' mansion in Bucklebury, Berkshire, following a ceremony at St Mark’s Church close by in Englefield.
Your big day is coming up, and you've hired a wedding planner London to make sure that everything goes smoothly. After all, it's important that everything goes according to plan.
What a wonderful year it's been! From parties in pretty tents in the beautiful Surrey countryside, Hampshire weddings in the glorious New Forest, more lavish London weddings and parties, my first Engage in Italy, a fresh new website, and so much more in between...it's been pretty special with so many highlights.
My feet have just touched the floor after returning from Engage!16 last week. What an incredible three days. I mentioned on the blog previously that I was heading out to Puglia in Italy for the luxury wedding business summit, which was held at Borgo Egnazia in the South Eastern Region of Italy.
I'm on countdown in the office, as in two weeks I'll be in Italy at the Engage!16 Europe conference! I'm thrilled to be attending, and more so as it's the first time Engage have brought the luxury business summit to Europe.
