Why Hire A Wedding Planner?

Maybe you're self-employed or perhaps you have a demanding career. It might be that you have a young family. It could be that you live abroad or that you don't know the area in which you want to get married that well. There are so many reasons why you might decide to hire a wedding planner, but often the main reason for having a wedding planner's assistance is that planning a wedding is SO time consuming. An average wedding takes anywhere from 200-350 hours to plan, so for many people planning their wedding is a daunting prospect, and a task that can just be a bit too much to fit around their already busy lifestyle!


Getting married is one of the most exciting and life-changing decisions you will make in your lifetime, and it's so important to not let it become something which is stressful, and stops you from enjoying that wonderful happy time of being an engaged couple! As well as saving you LOADS of time and worry, hiring an experienced professional wedding planner will make sure your wedding design surpasses your dreams, and works in perfect harmony with your choice of venue (no matter what kind or style)!

Some may see hiring a wedding planner as a luxury service, or as being unaffordable - this is not necessarily the case! Kook offer services to suit all budgets, and can help you as much or as little as you need. Often, we're able to save you money, by ensuring you're not making costly mistakes, and by recommending the best wedding suppliers from our black book of tried and tested trusted professionals. Kook Events don't EVER take commission from our suppliers in exchange for recommending them to you - I only recommend folks whose work is of high-quality, and that I love (in fact, on the occasion i'm ever offered a kick-back, it'll be passed straight on to you).

Hiring a wedding planner does not mean losing input and control over your wedding - quite the opposite! I love finding out about my couples' likes and dislikes, and working with them to create an amazing, highly personal event. My main priority is to be here to make sure you can relax through out your engagement, leaving you reassured in the knowledge that your wedding planning progress is on track, and that your day will be expertly styled and coordinated, with any dilemmas along the way being dealt with calmly and swiftly - 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!
