A Modern Wedding Planner: Are We A Match Made In Heaven?

Weddings by Mary has recently undergone a transformation, in much the same way your wedding venue is transformed to perfectly reflect you and your vision.

The look is different (there are a lot of velvety green tones now, and delightful little details), but the lifetime of expertise and the core values underpinning my modern wedding planning approach remain the same.

I thought it was time for a little reintroduction to who and what you can expect when we work together on your celebration; is this modern wedding planner a match made in heaven for your love story?

Honesty

One of the things I value most highly on your planning journey is honesty. There is so much conflicting information and a truly staggering amount of advice out there , some good, some not so good!, and I appreciate it can be overwhelming.

For this reason, it’s one of my promises that I’ll always be completely straight with you. You won’t get any fluff or nonsense from me, because your wedding is as important to me as it is to you. I’ll always have your best interests at heart and put what you want and need above all else, creating a transparent space and experience that holds your interests, dreams and vision at the forefront.

You won’t find me recommending suppliers because we’re friends rather than because they’re perfect for you.

You won’t find me increasing your spend in order to take commission either.

You’ll be kept in the loop about what’s possible and practical, where we’re at with your budget, and how things are progressing. I’m an open book and I’m here to take the overwhelm out of this rather important life event.

Trust

It is also really important that you know you can trust me to deliver your wedding to a ‘T’.

I have spent most of my life in the wedding and events industry, with decades of experience in weddings particularly.

I’ve seen the industry change and evolve, which allows me now to be the modern wedding planner you need.

I know you have busy lives and jobs that require a lot of your time and focus, and planning a wedding alongside this has the potential to be stressful. Working with me allows you to relax and enjoy the wedding planning process; you can focus on all the elements that bring you joy and make all the delicious decisions, while I handle the logistics, floorplans, timelines, supplier liaison…everything that doesn’t make you tick. Rest assured Your wedding will be in safe hands.

Connection

Part of the reason I am able to successfully take so much off your plate is that, at the heart of my job, I love of people and connecting with you.

Being your modern wedding planner means being able to blend this detail-focused organisation and expert problem solving with an open and fun relationship between us. Connection and fun are always a priority; I adore getting to know the two of you and I guarantee we’ll have lots of laughs along the way! 

To me, connection is also important in the greater context of your wedding.

This is your day to be deeply connected to one another, and to everyone you love in your lives. I share your passion for thoughtful little details and elements your guests will delight in on the day, and you’ll be thoroughly aligned with all the parts of the modern wedding planning you can find joy in.

What’s more, my wedding industry connections are crucial to enable me to help you find suppliers who will perfectly interpret your vision and personally ‘click’ with you too.

Approach

My approach to planning your wedding is balancing equal parts practicality, personality, and passion, and guiding you through this milestone celebration in a way that feels easy and enjoyable for you. I know it feels like a daunting process, but as Nelson Mandela said:

‘It always seems impossible until it’s done’

If you think this modern wedding planner might be your perfect match, it’s time to book a call and take that important first stepconnection.

I can’t wait to hear from you!

Hello

I’ve spent most of my life in the wedding & events industry. Helping couples in love to celebrate in style is something I adore and am hugely proud of being able to do.

At the very heart of my job is a love of people. A chance to connect with couples is one of my favourite parts. Being a wedding planner means being able to balance the detail-focused organisation and expert problem solving with the chance to have a good chat and a laugh with couples over a cuppa or a glass of fizz.
