Planning Advice

Planning Advice

With over 15 years of planning experience spanning the UK, Europe, the Middle East, and America, I’m known for my honest, current, and relevant approach as much as my head for logistics and passion for schedules

And I bring this expert knowledge to the UK’s leading wedding publications

It all started in 2014 when I wrote my very first collaborative wedding trends feature for Coco Wedding Venues. I soon discovered a love for sharing my take on weddings, which led to a continuing partnership and planning series on the Coco blog as their official resident wedding planner. A role as features contributor for Love My Dress soon followed and since then I’ve become the go-to expert for an array of publications.

My advice is relevant, doesn’t pigeon hole, and explores different aspects of wedding planning in an honest and cliché-free way.

Coco & Kat Trend Report

Autumn is honestly one of my favourite times of the year. Why? Well it’s because every November I get to partner up with Coco Wedding Venues for our annual Coco & Kat trend report. It’s a feature that’s packed full of creative and inspirationally stylish yet practical predictions. And it provides Emma and I with a platform to discuss emerging trends from beautiful real weddings, editorials, and the world of fashion, design, architecture and interiors.

I can’t recommend the ‘Queen of Schedules’ enough

“With valuable contacts in the industry, a strong individual voice and an excellent ability to share a vision, I can’t recommend the ‘Queen of Schedules’ enough. I only wish I had known her when I was planning my own big day!”
