Hi, I''m Susannah!
With over 15 years experience of planning and organising luxury weddings, stylish private parties (including luxury children's parties) and high end corporate events in London and the Home Counties, I've designed and delivered events in some of the country's most prestigious historic and contemporary venues alongside the finest suppliers in the wedding and events industry.
I've produced events in a plethora of different locations ranging from some of central London's most iconic venues such as Kensington Place, Westminster Abbey and Two Temple Place and luxury hotels including The Savoy, The Mandarin Oriental and The Ritz, to historic country estates such as Cliveden House and Hedsor House.
I am a proven specialist in the design and organisation of beautiful and unique weddings, which are a true reflection of my couples’ personalities and relationship stories. I am well known for my meticulous attention to detail and my calm and collaborative approach - I am so proud of my good reputation within the events industry and am delighted to receive lovely feedback not only from clients but from suppliers as well about how they found working with me. You can read a selection of these on my testimonials page!
I founded Couture Events Ltd with the intention of bringing my skills, experience, network and calm, unflappable attitude to engaged couples planning their dream wedding day, who might be feeling rather overwhelmed by the monumental task ahead of them!
Luxury wedding planner and event organiser
covering London, the Home Counties and beyond.
How I can help you ...
In addition to my years of experience and expertise in planning and organising, I offer my clients unrivalled access to my 'little black book' of recommended venues and 'tried and trusted' suppliers - such as stationers, calligraphers, designers, caterers, florists, photographers, videographers, production companies (sound, lighting, staging, dance floors etc), cake makers, patissiers, luxury transport, bands, DJs, costumed performers, headline acts - and so much more!
I'm your one point of contact from start to finish, matchmaking you with a carefully curated team of suppliers to fulfil your vision in terms of both aesthetic and budget. I'll be by your side throughout the journey, guiding and advising you, keeping tabs on the myriad of arrangements and email conversations and ensuring that no detail is overlooked; when there are last minute changes (which are unavoidable) I'm there to take charge, advise the relevant suppliers and make the necessary revised arrangements. You won't need to worry about a thing.
My team and I will turn your vision into reality - and we'll make the planning process not only effortless and stress free but also fun!
As much or as little help as you need ...
Whether you are planning your dream wedding, a milestone family celebration or a VIP corporate event, I can offer you an entirely flexible service to suit your exact needs, depending how much support you require, ranging
from full design and management to on the day management only.
So, whether you've just got engaged and don't know where to start ... or whether you've found your dream venue and just need a guiding hand to bring your vision to life ... or perhaps you have organised everything you need, you just want to be able to relax on the day, celebrating with friends and family safe in the knowledge that behind the scenes we are discreetly ensuring that no detail will be overlooked (the one's you've thought of and the ones you haven't!)... I can help as much or as little as you need
Whichever level of service you need, you can rest assured that you are always at the centre of the project, in total control of the look and feel of your event, we simply combine the talents of my recommended suppliers (or yours, if preferred!) and my years of expertise to professionally dovetail all the arrangements, leaving you to relax knowing that the planning and organising is in safe, professional hands.
