WEDDING COORDINATION SERVICES
Are loving the crazy, exciting adventure of planning your own wedding
Want your day to be relaxed, fun and run like clockwork
Would love for you, your family, and friends to be able to let their hair down on the day and not worry about what's going on behind the scenes with timings, suppliers or any other wedding day tasks
THEN YOU'VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!
Hiring a wedding coordinator does not mean losing input and control over your wedding day - quite the opposite. If you've spent months (or even years!) putting in the hard work to plan your dream wedding, it makes total sense to hire an experienced professional coordinator to make sure it runs as perfectly as you ever imagined!
Having the services of a wedding coordinator means you can enjoy your day without worry or stress, knowing that every detail and task has been taken care of and that your celebration will run super smoothly... leaving you to make memories with your family and friends, and focus on the fun stuff! This service is especially beneficial (some would say essential!) with a dry hire venue or a tipi/marquee with no venue staffing or an "in house" wedding coordinator. Even some couples who have a venue with a coordinator included choose to hire an independent coordinator, just to know they have someone on site who knows their own personal priorities for the day, and isn't going to be preoccupied with other duties at the venue.
Think of me as your own personal wedding ninja - making sure suppliers and guests are in the right place at the right time, the guests are happy, and dealing with any dilemmas along the way calmly and swiftly. I love finding out about my couples' likes and dislikes, and getting to know what's particularly important to them or what's worrying them, in order to offer a super personal service. My main priority is to be on site to make sure you and your family can relax throughout your wedding day, leaving you reassured in the knowledge that everything is on track - you don't have to be that couple who are fretting over suppliers arriving on time, moving furniture around the venue, or lighting candles on their special day!
WHAT DOES ON THE DAY COORDINATION ACTUALLY INCLUDE?
On wedding days, we encounter SO MANY different tasks, it's hard to give an exhaustive list! There's a lot of weird and wonderful things we do to help our clients on a day to day basis, but generally On The Day Coordination includes:
Around one month before your wedding day, meeting with you at your venue to go through all your timings, suppliers and the smallest details, to put together a comprehensive running order for the whole day, and will give you advice on anything else that needs to be done by you before the wedding.
Approximately 2 weeks before the wedding we'll contact all of your suppliers and ensure they have the correct contact details, timings and directions, and encourage them to direct any last-minute questions to us. This means you shouldn’t have to worry about watching your phone constantly the week or so before your wedding in case a supplier calls/emails you with a generic query (leaving you to relax!)
I’ll be there on the day itself to deal with any arrivals/queries from suppliers or guests, from the morning of the wedding right through until after the first dance/evening food (at which point everyone will be happily drinking and dancing)! I’ll ensure the fine details at the venue are exactly as you envisioned, the day runs to schedule and super smoothly, all whilst making sure your guests have a fantastic day and that you’re left worry-free and able to relax and enjoy your awesome celebration.
In addition to managing the other suppliers and ensuring things run to time, our couples often ask us to do jobs like: putting out garden games, filling up drinks dispensers with water, setting up dessert tables, switching on fairy lights, lighting candles, handing out orders of service/confetti, managing the ceremony music, making announcements, moving furniture, slicing up the wedding cake... the list is pretty endless! We don't just work off a list either - we're super proactive and if we see a job that needs doing, we'll get straight on it!
On the wedding day we always bring along an emergency kit – containing handy items such as safety pins, sellotape, paracetamol and a needle and thread.
We have public liability insurance of £1,000,000, which covers any work undertaken by us.
Throughout your planning journey, feel free to contact us for advice on timings or for recommendations on suppliers - we're always happy to help point you in the direction of what you're after!
WHAT'S THE COST?
Our coordination services listed below are based on a simple, easy to understand fixed fee. The costs quoted below include all mileage for weddings within Yorkshire. We are always happy to travel across the UK, but there may be a surcharge for travel and accommodation based on the location of the wedding. If you have any questions, would like to secure your date with a 20% deposit, or would like to obtain a travel quote for a wedding further afield, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
WEDDING PLANNING AND DESIGN SERVICES
As of 2020, we have suspended our offer of Full Wedding Planning or Wedding Design services, as we have decided to make things simpler by just offering On The Day Coordination. This is the one service that we've found that most couples find useful, and by focusing on one particular aspect of wedding planning we can spend our time helping more of you lovely folks out! (If you're after a planner rather than a coordinator though, we can recommend loads of great wedding planner pals who can help you organise your big day from scratch)!
