stylist and organiser of classically sophisticated, luxury weddings
London and beyond
Couture Events offers luxury wedding styling and planning services across London, the Home Counties and beyond.
Couture couples are looking to host classically sophisticated and stylish days,
usually in stately homes, 5 star hotels and luxury marquees.
Working closely with our couples, we create one of a kind, unforgettable wedding days
whilst ensuring the planning process is calm, collaborative and controlled.
Couture offers two levels of service, our signature, wraparound fully designed and managed service
and also a partial planning service, incorporating wedding day management (sometimes called 'on the day' management).
Wherever you are on your wedding planning journey, by working together
you can instantly benefit from the reassurance of knowing that you have experienced professionals by your side,
with a creative eye for innovative design, precise planning skills for dovetailing all the arrangements
and an unflappable attitude when personally overseeing perfection on the day.
"YOU ARE A SUPERSTAR!"
"Thank you so much for all your fantastic work on our wedding. You are a superstar - so supportive and kind and organised. You really had everything covered down to the tiny details. We really appreciated all your hard work."
Full Wedding Planning
Our fully designed and managed wedding planning and event organisation service is designed for clients who are looking for comprehensive, wraparound support, allowing them the luxury of knowing that - whilst they remain in control at all times of the look, feel and budget - the planning, organising and liaison required for this once in a lifetime celebration is in safe, capable, experienced hands with full guidance and advice along the way.
Whether you have a Pinterest page bursting with ideas or if it just seems too insurmountable to contemplate alone, we will listen to your dreams and goals, an will work with you to map out a step by step plan to bring your vision to life, hand picking the best suppliers to join our team and creating a master schedule, a critical timeline and a comprehensive budget document.
By taking our fully managed wedding planning or event organising service, you are giving yourself the gift of time - we take care of all the details and administration, giving you the time to do all the other things your are passionate about - no lost sleep over keeping track of all the details and deadlines, finding just the right florist or stationery designer, or making last minute changes to the seating plan - you can leave all that to us, ensuring that as the months and days count down, you can enjoy the planning experience while remaining cool, calm and stress free!
As a member of the UKAWP (UK Association of Wedding Planners), our fees follow the industry standard of 10%-15% of your budget, subject to the complexity of your wedding (eg location, number of days, if guest accommodation and transport management is required etc). A minimum investment applies.
Partial Wedding Planning
If you have already started planning your wedding or event and have identified, and secured, most of your preferred partners, such as the venue, the photographer or the caterer, but would now like to hand over to a professional planner to take forward, giving you back time as well as the assurance that no detail will be left unchecked, then this is the service for you.
We act as one point of contact for the venue and the suppliers, which saves you endless phone calls and emails, create the master schedule for the day, manage the budget, double and triple check all the arrangements, and pull together all the remaining details to create a seamless, smoothly planned experience for all of them and of course, you!
"On the day wedding planning" and event co-ordination is rather a misnomer - whilst the focus of the service is managing and overseeing all the arrangements on the day, in order to do this properly, the service actually starts at least 3-4 weeks beforehand, allowing time for us to meet you for a handover, visit your venue, speak to all your suppliers, double check all the arrangements and draw up and circulate the master schedule.
If you consider how much you are paying your photographer to be there on the day (for less hours than we would be) and to edit and prepare your gallery, we would be allocating a comparable amount of time and expertise for our minimum 'on the day' wedding management service.
Fees are agreed once the exact scope of your requirements are known.
