The Vanilla Rose Experience
An inspiring wedding planning partnership for style-conscious couples who dream of an effortlessly joyful celebration – connected to nature and elevated by elegance at every level.
Bringing the outside in
Fine art in style, original yet timeless, with an unmistakable air of laid-back luxury – I’m known for celebrations that embrace our beautiful English countryside. You’ll often find an abundance of greenery and soft, natural elements – refined and elevated by elegant details to bring it all together. I believe that trends may come and go, but tasteful design rooted in your personality will always be in style.
Wedding Design, Planning
From the moment we first chat, right through to the last champagne pop, I’m your expert partner in crime. Together we’ll plot and plan. Design and curate. Laugh until our sides hurt. And pull off the kind of wedding you and your loved ones will remember for the rest of your lives.
Based in Oxfordshire, my weddings take place throughout the English countryside (and sometimes further afield if you make me an offer I can’t resist!). Truthfully, I don’t work on too many throughout the year because, like my clients, I’m a quality over quantity kind of person. Forming a bond with you is absolutely top of my priorities as the key to creating a meaningful wedding with you both at the heart of every aspect. As your wedding expert, I’m here for you to gleefully tap into the depths of my knowledge – skipping the learning curve and indecision. From finding your perfect venue and dream team suppliers, to full concept design and meticulously organised logistics, taking us through to your wedding day with my trusted assistants by my side. It’s all about giving you an inspiring, stress-free experience that’s an escape from the busy-ness of daily life – building to the most spectacular celebration of a lifetime.

Let’s face it. Weddings aren’t exactly synonymous with being
But as someone who loves and respects the beautiful British countryside, I’m doing everything I can to be more mindful of the impact I have on it. This means that wherever possible I’ll look for local or seasonal options that also fit our vision and budget. Sometimes this looks like: you, wandering through fields of fabulous British grown flowers to choose for your bouquet – which also happens to be one of the most glorious experiences ever!
For those who are already at an advanced stage of planning their wedding, I open up a handful of opportunities throughout the year to work with me for a shorter period.
Picking up your plans around a month before your wedding, I’ll fine tune and finalise the logistics, design, and flow. Overseeing the day itself, you’ll be free to enjoy the whole wonderful experience, safe in the knowledge your vision is in the hands of an expert.
“Jeni has been a huge help throughout our wedding planning, and the voice of reason through her reassuringly calm nature.
I never really thought I needed a Wedding Planner until I met Jeni; she brought all of our dreams to life and we will sorely miss our planning sessions together.”

As a design-led Wedding Planner, I’ve built up a small collection of beautiful items which have proven indispensable in styling spaces and creating focal points.
From name cards slotted into French shutters to elegant storm lanterns lighting the way, they really add a certain charm and character to your day.
As a planning client, these props are available to you for hire, which we can discuss in more detail during the design process. If you’re not a Vanilla Rose client and are interested in prop hire, that’s possible too. Collection is from my Oxfordshire studio – just get in touch for a quote and to check availability.
