Hi, i'm April, founder and lead wedding planner at Kook! (yep, that's me, in that little circle over there). It's so great to meet you!
Fun is at the heart of everything Kook do, and has been since day one (in 2016)! As an event coordinator, we work for you to ensure the awesome, effortlessly cool wedding, party or event you've planned will run absolutely seamlessly and show your guests a brilliant time. I love working with clients who are after a creative, fun and totally personal event... Your big day really can be whatever you want it to be – nothing feels better than tearing up the rulebook!
HIRING APRIL WAS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST DECISION WE MADE FOR OUR WEDDING. SHE WAS ORGANISED, CHEERFUL, DILIGENT AND HELPFUL. SHE KEPT EVERYTHING RUNNING TO TIME, DESPITE THE PRESSURE FROM OUR FAMILIES AND SUPPLIERS. WE CANNOT RECOMMEND HER HIGHLY ENOUGH!
- AMY & GIL, 2018 BRIDE & GROOM
If you're after a highly experienced event planner who is down-to-earth, knows what makes a good party and genuinely wants to make sure their clients have a really happy and memorable celebration.... then you've found your people! We are absolutely NOT the stereotypical kind of wedding planners you see in American rom-coms who marches about with a headset and a clipboard in a suit (yep, you know the ones)!
You can be sure that no tiny detail will be overlooked, ensuring you can relax on the day itself, leaving you free to enjoy making happy memories with your loved ones. Whether it be a graceful day at a country house, an edgy minimal party in an industrial style venue, a relaxed reception in a marquee in the garden of your family home, or a vibrant festival wedding in a tipi, you can be sure your wedding will be fun, stylish and memorable for all the right reasons!
Kook are based in Yorkshire (just outside Leeds!) but LOVE to travel. During 2016 - 2022 we'll have worked everywhere from Scotland to Cambridge (and plenty of places in between)! Kook Events coordinate weddings and parties across the the whole of the UK (including our neighbouring counties, such as Derbyshire, the Peak District, Greater Manchester, the Lake District, Lancashire, Cheshire, Northumberland, Durham, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Cumbria...and beyond!)
ANDREW AND I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS, AS WE AREFOREVER GRATEFUL FOR ALL THE HARD WORK YOU PUT INTO MAKING SURE OUR DAY WAS MAGICAL. ANDREW SAID YOU WERE LIKE A MAGICIAN, AS ANYTHING HE ASKED FOR YOU DID WITHIN SECONDS!
