Hi, i'm April Denison, founder and wedding planner at Kook Events (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. As a wedding planner and designer, I create awesome, effortlessly cool, style-led weddings and events which totally reflect your unique personality, are relaxed and yet run absolutely seamlessly, and that show your guests a brilliant time! I love getting imaginative with my wonderful clients to create their fabulous one-off celebration, drawing inspiration from fashion, interiors, and culture. 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, and kept everything running to time despite pressure from families and suppliers. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
- amy & gil, 2018 Bride & Groom
I pride myself on flexibility – taking care of anything from finding an incredible venue, caterer, florist, photographer or other supplier, to design, budget management and even managing your RSVPs. Whatever support it is that you need, if I can provide it, I will! You can be sure that no tiny detail will be overlooked in the planning process or on the day itself, leaving you free to have a relaxing time 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 stylish, ahead of the curve and memorable for all the right reasons!
Kook Events are based in Yorkshire (in a cool, vibrant suburb of North Leeds!) but LOVE to travel. During 2016 - 2020 I'll have worked everywhere from Scotland to Cambridge (and plenty of places in between)! Kook Events plan weddings and parties across the the whole of the United Kingdom (including our neighbouring counties, such as Derbyshire, Greater Manchester, the Lake District, Lancashire, Cheshire, Northumberland, Durham, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Cumbria...and beyond!)
