Pack Away Service
Helaina Storey Wedding Design will stay behind after hours or return the next morning to clear away at the venue, allowing you to enjoy your first morning as newlyweds without the burden!
Partial Planning & Design
Need the whole service but only for the last stages? Helaina Storey Wedding Deisgn’s Partial Planning option is ideal if you have done a lot of the legwork already, but need someone to step in at around 6 weeks before the wedding day, to allow you to relax and enjoy the final build up without any worries or stress.
An Inspiration Session or Planning Consultation is part of Helaina Storey Wedding Design’s Styling or Planning service, but can also be offered as a stand alone option, if you just wish to discuss ideas and be inspired or if you have any burning questions for the experts before planning gets underway. The cost of a consultation would be deducted from Helaina Storey Wedding Design’s full planning fees, should you go on to book them to plan your wedding day afterwards.
Helaina Storey Wedding Design have a hugely diverse and ever-growing collection of unique props available to hire and discounts are available to those who have booked Planning and Styling.
Helaina Storey Wedding Design will curate all the visual/aesthetic details, decor and finishing touches from design to execution, creating a bespoke mood board and visual proposal, sourcing and liaising with other creative suppliers such as stationary designer, florist, props and tableware and linen and developing the concept into a stylish, unique and personal design to be applied across the entire day and make your event truly Pinterest-worthy, setting everything up on the day itself so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
If you don’t require the full planning service, but need a helping hand with recommendations of the best suppliers out there, then Supplier Sourcing can be offered as a stand alone service. Helaina will use her ‘little gold book’ of contacts and conduct further research as required, according to your brief and negotiate the best deals available on your behalf, before making an introduction for you to take it from there directly.
If you’re not quite sure about whether you require the full planning service at this stage, but need some guidance on the perfect venue for you and your guests, then allow Helaina Storey Wedding Design to take on this huge and often overwhelming task for you, kick-starting the wedding planning process and helping to shape everything else about the style of your wedding day. Helaina will establish a brief, recommend their favorites and conduct further research to find a venue suitable for your exact bespoke requirements, negotiating the best available deals where possible. Should you then decide to go on and book Helaina Storey Wedding Design for full planning, this fee will be deducted.
Helaina made me feel at ease while planning a wedding in France, when I live in the USA! The second I spoke to her via Skype, I knew it was all going to be ok. She is a professional, and takes her job seriously, plus you can tell she loves doing it! I had a very specific look that I wanted, and Helaina just got it right away. She made the wedding day (and the events before and after the wedding by giving the staff proper instructions) run so effortlessly smoothly. I did not worry about a thing.
In the run up to the day we found Helaina to be extremely accommodating to all our requests. She was very prompt in getting back to all our emails and questions, communicated effectively with all our suppliers, and importantly missed nothing, not even the minor details. In regards the day itself, we asked a lot of her and her team as there was plenty going on (multiple suppliers, moving furniture around etc) and a huge amount of detail – pretty much all of which had to be set up on the day. She managed to do all of this without any hiccups and interestingly I barely saw her, so she achieved all of this “behind the scenes.” I would also add that she is a very likeable person, so I have no doubt that you will have fun planning your wedding with her.
Helaina is brimming with creative input and has so many ideas to suit all styles and come up with something unique and special to make the day your own. She has some beautiful props, and has all the right contacts to source anything you need, again, taking the pressure off you. If you don’t know where to start or you already have a clear idea, her input and execution is nothing short of perfection.
