As your wedding planners, we’re here to give you the space to laugh and love, to feel inspired, to revel in the possibilities, and to fully experience each exquisite moment of your impeccably planned wedding…
Talk to me for 5 minutes and you’ll realise pretty quickly that I’m not just in it for the love stories. Don’t get me wrong, I think there’s nothing more romantic than getting married. It’s just that running events is in my (Virgo) DNA.
I’ve been involved in weddings and events all over the world now for over 15 years. It’s the kind of job that my detail driven, design obsessed personality thrives on. And our clients tend to be a lot like me!
As a big advocate of collaborative partnerships, I LOVE that my team and I can bring together our collective expertise to create an incredible wedding experience that’s personal to you and utterly distinctive.
We share our clients’ love of effortless, understated elegance, deliciously abundant blooms, incredible food and wine, and the pleasure of creating memorable occasions and experiences. Throw in a beautiful and quintessentially English setting and we’re in planning heaven.
Our days are split between London, Holywell Hall and The Forge, our 17th century HQ in Cambridgeshire, which oozes charm and fuels our obsession for classic English style and Farrow & Ball paint. It’s here that you’ll also find our resident Victorian Bulldog, Betty.
As your wedding planners, we listen to you and we truly care. We keep you updated throughout the process. We’re generous with our time, schedule regular meetings, and connect you with likeminded suppliers we know you’ll love as much as we do. More often than not we’ll also become really good friends; as getting to know each other socially is, in our opinion, an equally essential ingredient to planning your wedding.
And whilst we’ll work closely together in the lead up to your wedding, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the creative, exceptionally talented suppliers that support us and your vision. On the day, you’ll find us working alongside each other, as a cohesive team, one step ahead of every detail. Together, we are your personal team of experienced, talented experts, all dedicated to creating and providing you with a wedding like no other.

Kat is the ultimate wedding wing-woman
“She absolutely goes above and beyond. Nothing is too much trouble, she is a great sounding board and offers practical advice that is backed with tons of experience. I trusted Kat’s judgement more than my own at times and we really could not have done it without her.”

Kat was very direct and honest but also comforting in that she listened to us
“She helped us find our perfect venue and truly mastered our vision. I can’t recommend Kat enough – she had the right amount of communication and above all, was always there to listen.”
