Myself and my now husband searched for a wedding planner for a couple of months, we just didn’t feel we had found what we were looking for. Then come along Mary, this lady is nothing short of brilliant, from start to finish and still a week down the line taking the pressure off and tying up little loose ends so that we can enjoy our honeymoon in peace.
Mary gave us confidence, guidance and reassurance from the first meeting, there was no question in our minds that this was the lady we needed to help with our planning.
Myself and my husband work full time and needed someone that could source suppliers and be our main point of contact with all the suppliers and wedding venue.
Although we had a vision, Mary made it happen.
Mary went above and beyond, never coming to us with an issue but coming with a solution. Mary also has the patience of a saint, myself and bridal party particularly the mother of the bride and maid of honour came as part of a team and never did this throw Mary off, Mary was accepting and adaptable to not only dealing with me but also the above!
Mary really did become part of our family and she will be greatly missed with the contact we had, if it wasn’t about the wedding then it was a check up to make sure we were all doing well.
Mary isn’t just an exceptional wedding planner, she’s an amazing lady and a beautiful friend.
We will never be able to thank you enough for what you helped us achieve and for the beautiful memories of our beautiful day. Thank you Mary.
Well, what can I say about Mary? We had quite a DIY wedding and used Mary for her On-The-Day co-ordination. From meeting her for the first time, I felt so relaxed. She completely understood the ‘theme’ for our wedding. She wrote every single idea down that I mentioned and met with us twice before the wedding to ensure she knew everything she needed to know.She liaised with all of our suppliers which took the stress away from us. Mary was the first person there at the venue on the day and the last person to leave. Nothing was too much to ask, she did everything so professionally, our guests loved her!!!! We could not recommend Mary enough!!!

Mary, I don’t know where to start! Thank you so much for being so amazing before and on the day itself with all your help. A massive thank you for saving my dress and sewing me in!

Book Weddings By Mary and Relax. You will not be disappointed. Your venue and suppliers will also be very relieved. We booked her On the Day Coordination service as we wanted to do all the planning ourselves but needed someone to coordinate the day, so we could relax and enjoy the wedding. Wow! We were not disappointed and have had so many positive comments from my guests and vendors alike. Mary initially rang us and discussed our needs, then we regularly exchanged emails. She devised a time-line that highlighted what would happen, who would do it and when it would happen for the big day. She helped advise on details of the day due to her experience of other weddings and really made sure every small detail was considered. On the big day Mary met up with us at our hotel (separately) to ensure we were ok. She then went to our venue, Stationers Hall, to oversee and assist with the setup, making sure things went to plan and time. She acted as our MC and has an amazing “can-do” attitude”. On top of that, she remained professional and cheery throughout. We had an amazing day, relaxed in the knowledge that Mary had it covered. We can’t recommend Mary highly enough and would use her again in a heartbeat! If you’re reading this review and thinking of booking her, just to it – you won’t regret it!

As a family we had decided to organise our daughter’s wedding ourselves and employed Mary for her ‘On the day co-ordination’. At planning meetings she flagged up many ideas because of her vast experience that we hadn’t even thought of. You then imagine you have everything covered, but the relief of Mary standing beside us dealing with suppliers and sorting out issues as they came up with her wonderful smiley, no problem attitude was huge. That included dealing with a brides dress that broke just as she was getting in the car for the church!
She gave us all the gift of being able to really relax and take everything in on such an important day. Writing this testimonial made me want to thank her all over again!
Mother of the Bride
What a great day! But only because of your involvement – coming up with great ideas, co-ordinating everything and dealing with any issues on the day itself. Leaving us free to enjoy our special day and our guests …. which we did!
Mr & Mrs L
We had been planning our wedding for 3 years and approximately 6 weeks prior to our wedding my (now) husband and I decided to get in touch with Mary to enquire about her On The Day Co-Ordination service. Once we met with her there was no question we NEEDED Mary on our wedding day. Mary immediately put us at ease with her lovely personality and it was clear she had extensive knowledge of planning a wedding.
Not only this but Mary wanted to know exactly who we were as people and what we wanted for our wedding day, so we knew her approach would be tailored specifically to us.
We had an in depth meeting after which Mary organised a schedule for the day and contacted our suppliers to introduce herself as the main point of contact for the wedding day. The day prior to the wedding Mary assisted with the set up of the barn; she knew exactly what we needed to do and helped allocate jobs to my very willing family members! She made what we had expected to be a very stressful day into a very enjoyable one.
On our wedding day Mary was there bright and early, checking in on myself and my bridesmaids. I now know that she was also dealing with a few issues in the background that I was totally oblivious to, which was amazing as I can be a bit of a worrier! Throughout the day she coordinated everything seamlessly and we barely knew she was there.
Mary we cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day the most stress-free, amazing, beautiful day of our lives. It would not have been the same without you and it was our best decision to contact you. We cannot recommend Mary enough.

My husband and I decided to look for an on-the-day wedding planner as I am totally neurotic and was staying on site at the wedding venue the night prior; hopeful that having someone else in would remove some of the stress.
From the second we sat down with Mary, we knew that she would be someone who was organised, knowledgeable and a person that we could rely on to make our special day run seamlessly.
Thankfully, Mary did just that and beyond. She worked with us throughout the planning, asking useful questions and giving great advice. We definitely feel we got more out of her service than we bargained for!
On the day itself, she became our Fairy Godmother. Our day wouldn’t have been as perfect as it was without her and my Mother-in-Law was totally besotted with Mary when she magically appeared with some shoe inserts for her poorly feet! If it could happen, I guarantee that Mary has thought of it already and always comes prepared for little stresses; she’s brilliant!
If you’re looking for a wedding planner, we would both absolutely recommend Mary without a second thought. Simply put, she is magic and a thoroughly genuine person.
Thank-you Mary, we were beyond grateful to have you with us on and on the lead up to our special day.

Wedding Supplier Testimonials:
I have worked with Mary on many, many occasions and her attention to detail is second to none. If I was holding an event, Mary would be the first person I would contact. Mary has a professional and very friendly manner, I cannot recommend her highly enough.
We have had the privilege of knowing Mary for several years and we have always found her to be most professional in all that she puts her mind to. However, where Mary really shines for us is when we have worked with her it is obvious that she not only really understands her couples and their requirements and how to translate these, but she also understands those of the suppliers and allows us to be able to create and deliver our part of the day.
We have no hesitation in recommending Mary and anyone would benefit immensely from her professional guidance.
The Aussie BBQ Company have had the great pleasure of working with Mary and must say that she is a consummate professional. Nothing is too much trouble in the lead up to the big day and Weddings By Mary’s On The Day Coordination is second to none. Weddings by Mary is highly recommended by the Aussie BBQ family for stress free wedding planning and we very much look forward to our next event together.
