Equipped with impeccable organisation, a dedicated approach, and a lifetime of love for everything creative I’m ready to transform your visions into reality using meticulous planning, attention to detail and an enjoyable collaborative process.
Can you describe the wedding planning process?
It begins with a complimentary consultation, from there the focus is on having an enjoyable, stress-free, and fun planning experience. The first step is STORY & DESIGN. Together will uncover your overall story, look, vibe and concept of your celebration. By getting to know you on a deep level I will collaborate with you to tell your tale, and deliver a bespoke proposal and mood boards for every stage of the event. The second step SUPPLIERS & VENUES. I will carefully curate “team you”, encompassing leading industry experts who are equipped to bring your visions to life. When you’ve got the best people for the job, and every last detail has been meticulously planned, you can truly enjoy the planning process and relax on your big day. The third step is PLANNING & LOGISTICS. I will manage every last organizational detail including, liaising with suppliers, managing the budget, and creating the event schedule and timelines. I will take care of every piece of paperwork, freeing you up to spend time on those life moments that matter most to you. The final step is EXECUTION & ENJOYMENT. When it comes to your big day, I will be there to set up the venue, manage the styling, communicate with suppliers, make sure your guest experience is top-class, and be right there by your side for the entirety of the event.
What’s the difference between a venue appointed wedding coordinator and a wedding planner?
They are both professionals with clearly defined roles, however, a venue coordinator works for the venue; the independent wedding planner works for you – the couple. The venue coordinator is employed by the venue to make sure everything runs smoothly from their side, but they will only take on tasks related to the venue itself and their focus is on looking after the venue and upholding their rules and routines. An independent wedding planner’s focus is looking after the couple. A wedding planner will be involved in every aspect of the wedding (not just the venue), they will oversee the design, décor, planning, logistics and scheduling prior to the big day as well as maintaining a flexible schedule to fit in around your commitments.
We cannot recommend Amie enough! From the moment we began working with her every design and detail has been produced with extreme thoughtfulness and creativity. She is immensely knowledgeable and has a flexible approach – always ensuring she fits in around our crazy schedules! She has been on hand to answer questions, come up with last-minute solutions and suggest ideas we would never have considered without her help. We have loved every minute of working with her and would highly encourage you to seek her support!
Amie was amazing, she came in about 2 months before our wedding to really help sort out the final planning and run the day itself. She really took the time to understand our plans and how we wanted our day to be. She then worked with us to craft the timings and logistics to enable it. She was great at coordinating all the different vendors we had for the wedding before and during the day while ensuring we focused on the most important areas to consider and get right. On the day Amie was amazing, managing the set up, coordinating the different vendors and helping to adjust plans on the fly when the bus took a bit too long to get to the reception. As a result all the stress of the day was totally removed from us. Thank you Amie!
