Wedding Planning

Because every couple is unique, every wedding is unique. 

No two weddings are the same and at Weddings By Mary I will assist you to make your ideas, hopes and dreams become a reality whilst never losing sight that this is YOUR special day. 

I offer various wedding planning services which are flexible and can be tailored to suit your specific needs.

However, if you feel that none of these are quite what you are looking for, please do contact me so that we can discuss something more personal to you.

Full Wedding Planning


Many congratulations on your engagement! Now the fun really starts. With today’s busy work schedules and lifestyles, many couples may struggle to find the additional time to plan their special day. It can take over 250 hours to plan a wedding, which can be extremely difficult to fit into an already busy life.

Let me relieve you of this additional pressure, after all planning your wedding should be an enjoyable time. After an in-depth meeting to discuss your thoughts, ideas and requirements I put together a detailed plan of action, never losing sight that this is your special day; you remain in control. I will always be flexible and open to changes that will inevitably be necessary along the way, with a professional, friendly and logistical approach to planning your wedding.

I will source and liaise with all suppliers although the final choice on whom you use will remain your decision.  I can arrange and attend viewings and meetings, handle all wedding administration as well as invitation management. Most importantly I will keep a detailed record of the budget & payment schedule. You will have unlimited email and telephone contact throughout with regular updates provided. I will assist with setup, provide On The Day Co-ordination from beginning to end on the big day itself, as well as the days after to ensure all collection and returns are dealt with.

For Full Wedding Planning expect t to pay 10-12% of your total budget (minimum fee applies)

Partial Wedding Planning


So, you’ve booked the venue, florist and photographer, ordered the stationery and found the perfect dress. Excellent! You’re ahead of the game, but as the big day draws ever closer you may start to feel a little overwhelmed by the endless and growing list of tasks. This is the point where I can step in and assist with all the final arrangements, leaving you to relax and enjoy the run-up to your wedding day.

After our initial meeting, approximately 8-12 weeks prior to the wedding, I will handle the remaining organisation from liaising with the suppliers, sourcing any outstanding items or services. I will also manage any remaining administration and resolve any unsettled issues.

Most importantly I will compile not only a comprehensive timeline for the big day, but a payment schedule to ensure everything is covered.

My Partial Planning option also includes my presence on the day to fully co-ordinate from beginning to end leaving you, your families and guests free to relax and enjoy every moment of your wedding.

Partial Planning charges are dependent on the work involved and prices start from £1,500.00

On The Day Co-ordination


After many months, sometimes even years, all your hard work and planning is about to come to fruition. My On The Day Coordination option is perfect for couples who have planned their wedding but now require not only assistance, but more importantly assurance, that everything will run smoothly on the big day.

I will be on hand for as long as you need to make sure that every detail that you have meticulously planned flows effortlessly, leaving both you, your families and guests free to relax and most importantly enjoy your special day.

Typically, we will meet approximately 4-6 weeks prior to the big day to run through all your plans and arrangements in detail. I will then put together a thorough time plan and introduce myself to all your suppliers and confirm the final arrangements. On the day of the wedding I will act as the main point of contact, not only for all the suppliers, but also your guests.

Additionally, I can assist with setting up the day prior to the wedding as well as the following day to ensure any collections/returns are all dealt with if necessary.

On The Day Co-Ordination starts from £650.00
