Working with every client is a pleasure, and every Wedding brings its own unique set up of challenges along the way, it is the experience of both myself and fellow wedding professionals both prior and on the day, to work closely together in order to ensure, everything has been carefully fine-tuned for the day, ensuring that the clients day will be very stress free and memorable. Team work is essential. I personally like to make the clients’ experience as fun as possible, and will recommend many special and personal unique touches.
The wedding industry is constantly expanding, with an increasing number of options available for clients choices of Venues, Setting, Catering, Themes, Suppliers and so much more. You can even choose the way you want your ceremony conducted, whether this be traditional in a church / Synagogue/ Mandir/ Mosque or Gurdwara, Civil Ceremony or even and most popular today is your own Personal Wedding Blessing which is conducted by a celebrant or officiant, in your own choice of setting. The choice of Venues available have become immense, again this all comes down to personal choice, do your research before choosing a venue, there are so many available resources to research, whether you are looking for a Hotel, Country House, Restaurant, Village Hall, Castle, Sports Club, Racecourse, Manor House, Trendy Event Space or any other, you really are spoilt for choice. You may even be looking for Dry Hire, Marquee or DIY options, again the options and resources to research are unlimited. In relation to suppliers, whether you are looking for a Toastmaster, Photographer, Video, Décor, DJ or any other, the choices are very large, ensure you do your research and check reviews and testimonials online as well as their insurances, you should always confirm that the supplier has the relevant insurances, a credible supplier would be able to email all of this to you, for your own reference and peace of mind. Each supplier is as important as the next, each are instrumental and play a vital role in the success of the bride and grooms special day.
The clients budget plays a vital part in what can be achieved, some clients have larger budgets than others, with the range of venues, suppliers and services as well as the resources available, the clients are spoilt for choice, however be mindful of quality and insurances. Cutting corners can also be a risk, I understand everyone is on a budget, however try not to cut corners of the most vital parts of the wedding day.
I hope this helps as a valuable insight into myself and the Wedding Industry. It will be a pleasure to answer any questions anyone may have and be of assistance to you all.
