"Amy, where do we begin. We reached out to you when our idea of hiring a wedding planner was still maturing and we were in a confusing situation with another planner who didn’t seem QUITE trustworthy. You simply said ‘follow your intuition’ and never pestered us, just let us lead the way. We did exactly as you suggested, picked you and never looked back.
From that moment on, magic started to unfold.
Magic that comes from working with someone with a rare mix of immense experience, the appropriate skills, ability to work with anyone and anywhere… and a personality like yours that highlights how much of a true listener you are (you picked up on so many things that turned out to be completely ‘us’), how much you CARE, your sense of fun, your eye for quality and beauty, your ability to connect deeply with everyone in our ‘dream team’ that you helped create that basically meant all vendors were THEMSELVES feeling just as happy and supported as we were!
All this happened in the months before our big day, leaving the day itself to unfold naturally.
Everyone was comfortable with everything, and there was this truly magical sense of vendors all feeling like they’ve at least worked together before or known each other somewhere, yet this was the first time for almost everyone! THAT vibe. That sense of flow. I’m tearing up just remembering it all.
Of course, it’s all about the big day ultimately, but hear me when I say there were SO MANY special days and special moments facilitated by working with Amy. I know she’ll likely say we co-created it together, and maybe so, but it wouldn’t have been anywhere near the same without her".
Belvoir Estate Wedding
Joanna and Gary’s gorgeous August 2019 wedding all took place at the picturesque spot that is Frog Hollow on the Belvoir Estate. The most picture perfect location for them, where they had a separate marquee for their wedding blessing, (so that they could really enjoy the natural surroundings of Frog Hollow), as well as one for their wedding reception.
Joanna contacted me back in January 2019, as she knew she wanted some wedding support and assistance. Having actually got married the August before in Red Feather Lakes, Colorado, USA, they wanted to re-create certain elements of their day with all of their family and friends here in the UK on their first wedding anniversary. After a couple of emails and a Skype chat, Joanna and Gary booked me for partial wedding planning support. Frog Hollow and their photographer were already in place, but that was it, they still had the rest of their key suppliers to choose and confirm, so it was full steam ahead and what an incredible wedding planning journey it was. Such a relaxed, calm and fun couple to work with.
