"Where do I begin... April is a wedding fairy godmother!! Our day simply would not have been anywhere as special as it was, if it wasn't for April's passion, care and attention to detail!

From the very start of our communications April was responsive, always willing to help and generous with her time. As the wedding drew closer April stepped in, communicated with all our suppliers, visited the venue with us to chat through our plans and was there to help with all the logistical questions an outdoor/marquee wedding throws up!

April really bought into our vision and did it with real passion and care - she genuinely wanted us to have the best day and was so supportive. On the day April whizzed around seamlessly setting up a drinks station, moving flowers, lighting, what must have felt like (!), a million candles, moving outdoor furniture/games and getting everyone to where they needed to be. 

I honestly think booking April was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding - thank you so much for being part of our day and for everything you did to make our dream a reality!

"April! I literally can't thank you enough for being such a big part of our Wedfest at Kilnsey Park. It was without doubt, the time of our lives! 

From the moment we initially found you I knew I wanted you to be a part of it and you delivered beyond our expectations!
Everything was incredible and you made it happen!! From fixing the broken Edison light feature, to managing the late furniture, to shopping for firelighters and diesel, to setting up 90 chairs like a wonderwoman, to organising the secret Shetland pony... You managed it all with a smile and I loved just having you around!


I am privileged to have met and worked with you. Not only are you an incredibly hardworking, resourceful and creative event planner, you are also one of the loveliest people I've ever met and I hope we keep in touch forever!

Literally every guest has said it was the best wedding they've ever been to, and they all want to do it again!

"April was an absolute dream to work with. To say that she went over and above to make our dream wedding day come true is an understatement. If you are looking for a perfect wedding planner then look no further, April is the one! 

Thankyou again April for everything that you arranged for us. The picnic and dinner table decorations were out of this world. We are still flying high from our beautiful day. We couldn't have chosen anyone better!"

We had such a perfect day, and are so grateful for your work and generosity in helping it all come together."

I am still not over the Fig House decor, honestly I could have cried when i saw it! You brought my whole vision to life and made it even better than i could have ever imagined.


Your attention to detail was incredible and there was so many things that you'd taken and enhanced to make the venue even more beautiful than we could have ever have imagined."

"We worked with April for coordination and set up for our wedding at Northern Monk. From our initial consultation, April was reassuring, knowledgeable and completely understood the vibe and tone we wanted for our day. Throughout the planning April acted as an amazing 'go to' and was able to help recommend suppliers through her huge network of contacts. April came along during our set up the day before to walk through the plan, then led the set up and coordination of suppliers and guests for the full wedding day. The venue looked incredible thanks to her eye for detail and coordination of the finishing touches. I couldn't have been more grateful than when I arrived at the venue in the car on my own and her smiley face was waiting to meet me! We would 100% recommend working with Kook! Events."

"My wife and I got engaged in January  2021, with a date of September 2021; not much time! April was the person who made every happen, due to our own quick timescale we were willing to settle on a few features but April made sure we had everything that we had dreamed of! She was passionate, enthusiastic and it was an absolute pleasure to work alongside her to create our special day. She has a beautiful soul and a true love for what she does. Despite having her own challenges this year she made she sure we felt the main priority and took all the pressure of organising a wedding off us. After a short initial meeting and a quick share of our Pinterest board, she knew exactly how to bring our dream to life. We are extremely grateful for April and can’t thank her enough."

"April is just amazing! She got me organised before my wedding and got in contact with all of my suppliers which took the pressure off my shoulders. She emailed over a spreadsheet of timings for the day which was so helpful! On the day, she couldn’t have done more to make sure everything went smoothly. She made such a difference to the day, checking on last minute details and getting everything into place. She was just truly brilliant!"

"Hiring Kook Events for your wedding is a decision you won't regret; I know we don't!


April was extremely easy to work with and quickly understood our needs, the style and vibe we were wanting to achieve.

All the elements of the wedding were brought together perfectly, we couldn't have wished for more. 


On the day April was a pleasure to have around, coordinating everything to perfection. Throughout the whole process nothing was too much trouble, it really feels like April goes the extra mile and genuinely cares about the her work. We loved working with you and can't thank you enough for helping to make our day everything we wanted and more."

"April was fantastic to work with, from initial emails to planning over coffee, to the big day itself. 

We floated through our wedding without having to think about a thing thanks to April promptly and professionally dealing with everything behind the scenes. 

We wouldn't have changed a thing and would 100% recommend Kook to anyone planning an event! Thank you!"

"Being a control-freak, I thought I'd be a an absolute emotional wreck on the run up to the wedding and I think everyone was surprised to see me so calm and relaxed. And that was majorly down to you, April. 


Nothing was too much trouble and you turned your hand to everything from decorating to chasing after troublesome suppliers. Everybody's advice was to "make the most of it" and "take a few moments to take it all in", but I definitely wouldn't have been able without having you there.


Everyone needs an April. Seriously. "

"Right from the first phone call, I knew that you got what we wanted from the day and you made me feel completely at ease. 


Working with you was one of the best decisions that we made, you just can’t underestimate how much more smooth and enjoyable the day was for us because we knew that you were taking care of everything and making sure that the bands were on time, the catering had power, and all the little things that we won’t have even known about, but which you did to make everything go without a hitch.


I could not recommend you enough to anyone else who is planning a DIY wedding"

You did such a great job and we are so pleased you were there, so thank you!"

"We recently hired April to coordinate our homecoming wedding party. From start to finish she was on the ball and understood exactly what we needed. 


Importantly for both of us, we didn’t have any involvement on the day of the party (because April just got on and dealt with it all) and were able to enjoy ourselves without having to worry about whether the band were on time or if everyone was being fed etc. 


I highly recommend April and will definitely work with her again in future."

"From the first time April and I chatted, I knew we were on the same level - from our colourful and fun visions for the big day to giggling at ‘erecting tents!’ I knew we had found the perfect person to help bring the last few bits of our planning together and help us coordinate the day itself. April tailored her services to meet our needs for the wedding and did the most AMAZING job! From finding us the perfect band, celebrant, bar and tipi to making sure that the set up and running of the day all ran smoothly - it was all PERFECT! 


Our friends and family keep telling us it was one of the most personal, unique weddings they’ve ever been to and WE CAN’T THANK APRIL ENOUGH for helping us pull it all off. We had the most magical, perfect, fun-filled day and couldn’t have done it without her - she’s BLOODY BRILLIANT! Thank you April!"

"We hired April at Kook Events to be our wedding co-ordinator. Honestly, our day wouldn’t have been the same without her. April also brought an assistant who helped so much as well. 


We owe the smooth running of the whole wedding to April – she is so organised, put me and Jonny at ease, she knew our wedding inside out and she took care of everything on the day and in the days leading up to the wedding. Seriously, everyone needs an April at their “DIY” wedding!!"

"I can't overstate how absolutely amazing April is! Right from the first phone call I knew she was "the one"- I didn't even contact any other planners! 


We trusted her fully right from the start and gave her a lot of freedom with the creative aspects of the day. She went above and beyond what we expected and everything was absolutely perfect. 


We feel so lucky to have had our perfect wedding. You took all of our ideas and turned them into the wedding of our dreams. You are so amazing and we hope to be friends with you forever!"

"Couldn't recommend April any more, from the first time we met to run through our big plans for the day you were totally on board with ensuring it went perfectly!

On the day April and Emily were amazing, so helpful to everyone - even helping one of my Aunties find flip flops when her shoes were rubbing. I am unsure if there were any hiccups at all on the day because it just ran perfectly - you made the day so stress free and perfect. Everything was perfect.

April was just amazing - even getting stuck in dancing with the sparklers!!

Thank you again so much :)"

April is simply amazing! We hired a village hall for our wedding and wanted the peace of mind that on the day everything would be looked after so we hired April for on the day coordination and I'm so glad we did. 


From setting out garden games (and rushing them back inside when it rained!), coordinating with all our other suppliers, helping setup the venue for the evening and even creating a little unplanned but much appreciated snug upstairs for guests, she made sure every bit of our do went perfectly and meant we could just relax and enjoy. Add to that great communication and help in the run-up to the day and generally just being so friendly and professional, I would not hesitate to recommend her. Thank you April so much xxx
