ABOUT ME

Hello,  nice to meet you! 

Since moving to France in 2009, I  have finally found my ideal job.  After having worked in London in the media industry for many years, a decision to leave the UK for pastures new has resulted in me being able to work utilising my creative and organisational skills, planning and styling weddings in the beautiful French countryside. 

I am French registered and fully insured to work here.

 

PLANNING SERVICES

I offer a full planning service from start to finish that helps guide you through the whole process of planning a wedding in South West France.

I can even help with sourcing your venue.

I utilise my contacts within the wedding industry to locate the best suppliers for your special day.

My suppliers include: chefs, drink's specialists, florists, classic cars, lighting  experts, musicians, bands, DJ's, hair and make up stylists, cake makers, transport for guests, accommodation lists, in fact just about anything  and anyone you could possibly need or want to make your wedding the dream day you desire!

 

I charge a flat rate fee of 3,650€ for full wedding day planning from start to finish, including the on-day co-ordination.  There will be other support staff fees on the wedding day, such as an assistant and manpower services.

WEDDING STYLES I'VE CREATED

Chateau chic, Rustic charm, French country style, Classic, Vintage, Boho, Retro, Sporting, English tea party, Bond 007, Indian, French vineyard, French market – are just some of the styles that I have created for weddings here in France.

 

WHAT I DO FOR STYLING

I take onboard your ideas, photos and thoughts and combine them with mine and the reality of recreating those ideas at your chosen venue within budget.  I work closely with your wedding planner,  (if I am working as a stylist), the event lighting specialist and wedding florist.

My service includes experience and expertise with floor plans, event logistics, flowers, decorative detail, lighting, stationery design, personalised arts and craft creations, favours, furniture hire and sourcing specialist original pieces.  I  have access to decor supplies that can be rented for your wedding, in particular larger items like wine barrels for that rustic charm, wedding arches, bunting, right down to a paper lantern ceiling.  I even make bespoke table plans, or anything that is needed and within my creative capabilities!

I am here to take the pressure off you, so that you can relax and enjoy your special day after all the months of planning.

 

 

HOW THE STYLING FEE WORKS

Once a contract has been sent, and a deposit of 50% paid:

If your venue is local to me I include a visit with you to go over your ideas, otherwise if I already know the venue and it’s not local, then we talk on Skype about your ideas, using emails and photos and Pinterest.

If I don’t know your venue and it is not local, then I charge a travel cost of up to 50€ to travel up to 1.5 hours.

During the run up to your wedding we can communicate via Skype, email or landline including using photos, Pinterest and Dropbox.

I charge a flat rate fee of 900€ and this includes me having regular* contact with you via Skype and email to create your styling dossier with plans and photos over the months running up to your wedding. I am then present on the day to install your décor items, liaise with your florist and the lighting specialist.

More often than not, if your planner needs an assistant I can work alongside the planner to do this, so this saves you the assistant's fee.

If of course you have an extraordinary amount of décor with fine detail, which would need more than just my services to install, I would hire an assistant for the installation, but this would be capped at an additional 300€.

*Regular contact means within reason!
 

DÉCOR HIRE

I have a variety of decor stock for hire, for example:

Table plans, frames, crates, clocks, suitcases, drink's dispensers, lawn games and various signage (I take bespoke orders as well).
