Planning Tips

Planning a Luxury Wedding in the UK

Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, bringing joy, happiness and love. Your dream luxury wedding will be an event where you, your family and your closest friends will create memories you will all remember for a lifetime, and it’s our job to create the platform to enable that to happen; everything should be perfect!


To treat your guests to a world-class luxury wedding experience, establishing a clear vision of what you’d like to create is the best place to begin.


As luxury wedding planners, we have a huge focus on the details. The venue, florals and menu are all greatly important, but paying immaculate attention to the smaller details is where an event moves to the next level of luxury. This is where the engaging the services of a luxury wedding planner with wedding event management services becomes the most valuable.


Setting the Vision

Curating an initial vision for your dream luxurious wedding is the perfect place to start on your planning journey. Whether you’re planning an intimate gathering or a large-scale event, hiring the services of a luxury Wedding Planner is can save you valuable time (planning a wedding takes on average 250+ hours!) and alleviate the stress of wedding planning. With over a decade of experience in planning luxury events, we have a wealth of industry knowledge to guide you through the process with ease. This all starts with the inspiration and design, to begin turning your vision into a reality.


By engaging our full-service wedding planning, as professional Wedding Planners, we will always listen carefully to your vision and work endlessly to exceed your expectations with our vast insider knowledge, experience, and relationships within the wedding industry.

Selecting the Perfect Suppliers

Your luxury wedding planner will guide and support you through the journey in building the best team of suppliers for your wedding, to best pair with your vision, venue and budget. We’ll manage all briefs, enquiries and meetings and aid you in making the best decisions.


Suppliers are truly valuable investments, and it’s easy to get lost in a world of hundreds of options without knowing what you’re looking for, which is why it’s important to take time in selecting a supplier team who will best meet your needs.


Exquisite Décor and Styling

Once your luxury wedding venue has been secured, your luxury wedding planner will assist you in transforming it with personal touches for your special day. This involves using a cohesive sense of vision for the dress code, theme, flowers, music, furniture, production & lighting and everything else! Each element needs to work together harmoniously, elevating the other higher and creating a setting that works cohesively.

Indulgent Food and Beverage

Consider your choice of catering carefully as this certainly plays a huge part in your wedding celebrations, and can ensure your guests are well looked after throughout your wedding day.


We work with some top industry Chefs and catering companies, who use top quality ingredients and provide the best team of staff to serve your guests.  Using fresh and local ingredients, a good Chef will be able to create you a bespoke menu using your favourite and memorable meals as inspiration to delight your guests throughout the day.

Capturing Memories

Your wedding day will create memories you will want to cherish for a lifetime. With this in mind, we always advise our clients to invest in a Photography and Videography team who will capture your celebrations to tell the story of your day in the best possible way, and allow you to look back fondly over the years and evoke memories. They should have experience in shooting luxury weddings and it’s vital you meet them in person or via video call before engaging their services, as it’s important you feel comfortable with them and that you have an aligned vision with them, as much as loving their quality of work.  Your wedding event management team will be able to provide you with the best recommendations for reliable Photographers and Videographers and discuss each quote with you to enable you to select the best team.

Entertainment and Special Touches

Whilst music is always an important factor to consider, there are endless entertainment options available to truly create some unforgettable experiences and elevate your luxury wedding plans. From stilt walkers to roaming acrobats, live artists to poets, introducing a selection of performances and entertainment into your event creates a playground of adventure and mystery for your guests – a real highlight and talking point for sure!

Accommodations and Guest Experience

Whilst you are planning a luxury wedding, do be mindful that not all of your guests may be able to afford luxury accommodation. We will source a range of the best accommodation available which surrounds your wedding venue and negotiate rates for your guests, with varying price points. We will then include these when sending your invitations to allow guests to book their accommodation with ease. We can also arrange transport to collect your guests from their hotels, and return them safely at the end of the night.

Managing Logistics and Timeline

Our comprehensive event schedules and timelines are well known within the wedding industry! We spend a huge amount of time on creating these for the supplier teams to establish every piece of information that each supplier requires to ensure they can surpass expectations for you and your guests. We include a brief outline of the wedding timeline and all key contacts, before detailing exact timings, locations, visual guides and specifics of the day. By hiring a wedding event management company we will take care of this for you to allow everything to run seamlessly for your luxury wedding.
