As a self-confessed control freak who considers themselves extremely resourceful and independent, I thought I didn’t need the assistance of a wedding planner to help me organise my french wedding from Australia. I was wrong. Anna showcased a number of skills throughout the year that we worked together that I quite frankly never knew existed or I had the capacity to perform. Anna is well connected in the industry, her suppliers like her and are therefore flexible when it comes to her clients. She has excellent negotiating skills in English, French and Spanish. Anna was my soundboard and best friend throughout the whole process; I bounced ideas off of her, she offered balanced advice, was stern with me when things were out of my budget but always respected my decisions and offered an unlimited amount of time to consult her. We Skyped Anna regularly, she was very accommodating around meeting times given the significant time difference. We had a 3-day event – welcome drinks, the wedding and the day after brunch. We were really struggling to find a venue that would host our group for the welcome drinks as it was peak season, our budget was tight, we wanted a view and no one was willing to give up their space for the price we could afford. Anna literally hit the pavement and door knocked, built relationships and managed to get us 2 fantastic options – something I could never have done from Australia. Anna was present for all 3 events and went above and beyond for each one.
Where I am most grateful for Anna’s support and assistance was when we had to execute plan B at the last minute due to bad weather. Anna was able to project manage the move of chairs, sound equipment, decoration, lighting and catering. She liaised with all and left me alone with my girlfriends to enjoy the morning. Anna showed excellent leadership capabilities throughout the day and you could tell she had the respect of her team who worked incredibly hard to pull everything off.
Anna dedicated hours upon hours to us, our Skype sessions usually went between 2 to 3 hours, she shopped around and got us various quotes, she sourced in corners we couldn’t reach and really worked her networks. One thing I learnt about Collioure is that they don’t operate online, they operate in physical networks and only like working with people who come recommended. Anna manages to win the hearts of all of them! Knowing we had Anna working for us in the background took a huge weight off our shoulders, we felt in safe and capable hands and knew she had our best interests, pockets and ideas at heart. Having Anna is not a decision we regret, in fact, in hindsight, we cannot believe we haggled her.
My fiancé and I are British expats living in Singapore. We planned to get married in France this June which is when Anna came into our lives. Anna has been nothing short of magical, patient and frankly, just amazing. We were 3 months out before the wedding when COVID-19 hit! My fiancé and I were incredibly nervous and didn’t know what to do, we sheepishly asked Anna and boom! She had a plan! She has started thinking what-if’s and as the situation got worse, she went through our indecisiveness on scheduling a new date, contacted suppliers at a drop of a hat and just generally being an angel.
Wedding planning has quietened down now as we have another year to go, and we miss Anna. One good thing is that have more time to plan with Anna, she doesn’t do this as a job, it’s clearly a passion 😊

Sorry I haven’t got back to you sooner. The hosting has just stopped. We are now relaxing and reflecting on our fabulous day.
We want to thank you so much for bringing together all the perfect components to create our perfect wedding day. To us, and our guests the day seemed smooth and seamless and tonnes of fun which we have you to thank for! The day was impossible without you, even before it happened. But we were even more grateful for you once it was all over.
You’re a class act and have the unthinkable and every angle covered before it’s even required. Resulting in allowing the bride and groom to wholly relax and embrace their very special 24 hours that they’ll never get back.
Lots of love
James and Jenny
