Expenditure Planning

We create and take charge of a realistic budget to work towards and ensure that our clients stay on track throughout the process, re-assessing, negotiating and keeping them aware when necessary.

Timeline Organisation

We create and provide our clients with a detailed and bespoke timeline that carefully outlines the list of tasks that need to be completed by them. We are always here to guide our clients through the process. We also prepare a detailed timeline of the actual event.

Venue Sourcing

Based on our clients’ desired type of venue, we provide them with a bespoke shortlist of venues. We then manage viewings, contracts and payments on their behalf.

Supplier Sourcing

Based on our clients’ brief, we source all suppliers such as: photographer, videographer, florist, cake designer, music & entertainment, transport, catering, child care, décor, etc. Each supplier is thoroughly vetted and checked to ensure that they meet our standards and are the right fit for our clients.

Administration & Payments

We handle all administration related to the event, such as: confirmation and management of all suppliers, making payments and providing detailed guidelines for the event. We always keep our clients updated via the App, and a monthly update letter and email.

Styling & Creation

Based on our clients’ wishes we are able to create a wealth of design concepts and style to make their vision come true. We suggest everything from colour schemes, table settings, lighting, glassware and furniture, to all the personal details that make an event personal and bespoke. In order to help our client visualise these, we create bespoke mood boards.

Event Day Management

We are at the venue the whole day of the event (and the day before if possible), in order to ensure that everything goes to plan and to be the main point of contact for everyone. Our clients are therefore reassured that we are in charge whilst they relax and enjoy the day.

Respect of Etiquette & Traditions

We guide our clients through the complexity of etiquette and various traditions.

General Assistance

We assist our clients on everything relative to the event; from music selection, attire and travel arrangements for guests.

Pre & Post Event service

We understand that some of our clients enjoy entertaining their guests over several days around the main event. We are happy to organise dinners, visits, brunches, etc. for our clients. We also offer the delivery of all photographic and video content to our clients.

Partial planning & management

This is a service that comes into action anytime between 6 to 2 months before the date of the event.

This is for the client who has underestimated the task at hand and would need some help in order to finalise details, resolve issues, etc.

We offer a full App subscription to our clients. With this, they are able to access all event information and relevant documents from anywhere at any time.

We offer a complimentary* consultation to understand the client’s requirements and vision of the event, as well as a thorough handover of what has already been planned.
