By far one of the best wedding decisions we made!
Being a bit of a control freak, I had my reservations about hiring a wedding planner, but with Lulu we got so much more than expected!
From the moment I contacted her I immediately felt at ease. She was extremely professional, responsive and thought of things that we hadn't. Prior to our wedding she worked well with all our suppliers and problem solved all the various issues that sprung up. She went above and beyond when she helped out with an event we had the day before the wedding off her own back.
After our day I heard about all the problems we had with our suppliers and the venue - on the day I had no idea! She was calm, solved all our problems, dealt with our demands, as well as our family demands with good humour and was a lifesaver when I managed to get make up on my dress!
All of our guests had nothing but praise for how smoothly the day went, and that is down to Lulu. I have already recommended her to everyone I know!
Brilliant wedding planner!
'Hiring Lulu was without a doubt the best decision we made in the whole planning process.'
When my husband and I first started planning our wedding he and I always knew I was going to be the main organiser. We also didn't think that a wedding planner would be within our budget. But as the day approached we both recognised that for me to let go and fully relaxed an on the day coordinator might be worth looking into, and then we found Lulu...she was incredible!
She met with us and after the first meeting we knew our wedding would be in great hands. Calm, collected and full of fantastic advice she made sure all eventualities were covered. We both loved that we could email her in the lead up as many times as we needed, perfect for those moments of stress and dilemma, she really made herself available whenever we needed her and that was fantastic. On the day itself everything ran smoothly, in fact at one point we were even slightly ahead of schedule. Lulu made sure everything was set up and ready and ensured it all went without a hitch. Even down to fixing a waistcoat button, finding seats for unexpected guests and dashing into town to find 4 perfect white roses for my bridesmaids when the ones I'd ordered weren't quite right. With Lulu by our side we were able to relax into the day, no worries or concerns and it meant that we truly had the best day of our lives, the memories we have we will cherish forever and we are so grateful for Lulu's help in making that happen.

Our venue was a village hall that came with an 'in-house coordinator' who quit quite early on in our planning process. As a control freak, I didn't really mind at first as I wanted to do everything for the wedding myself, and didn't want to have a planner helping me do it. However, I realised that we couldn't go without someone there on the day as the DIY nature of our wedding needed someone there to ensure things ran smoothly. We found Lulu through a google search and were SO pleased we did! Lulu was great from the moment we booked her. She was easy to contact and always got back to us to answer our questions as best she could. Having a coordinator overseeing things in the few days before the wedding was great, and really helped to alleviate some of the last minute stresses! On the day itself we had a very short spell of very heavy rain which demolished one of our party tents. Lulu was great at finding new homes for the things that were in the tent and I was so pleased with how she rescued the situation! And that wasn't the only hiccup she helped manage professionally and discreetly (the electricity went as our beef wellingtons were about to go in the oven!) I would really recommend hiring Lulu for on-the-day support. Having her there meant that I enjoyed every minute of our day, knowing she was there to support us.

You cannot afford not to have Lulu at your wedding! We picked her as our planner as our very first decision once we decided to get married and it was great to have an expert on hand to guide us throughout the whole process. She was overall professional and organised and was always ready to help us when we needed with supplier suggestions and meetings - for example we had a great silhouette artist as our entertainment who we wouldn't have found otherwise. She was a great support when liaising with suppliers and the venue which I am sure meant she overall saved us money and most definitely time and stress! We had her attend on our day as well and she was a great contact for the venue for all the little decisions that needed to be made behind the scenes so we could just relax. I was totally calm on our day knowing she was taking care of the room switch around between ceremony and wedding breakfast, which went without a hitch which I am sure which was down to her guidance rather than our slightly disorganised venue. Highly recommended!

I got married in my village church & village hall in Oct 2016, quite a small wedding but when no venue
coordination as it was a village hall I decided to hire Lulu to help me with on-the-day coordination to ease the need for anyone in the wedding party to do anything other than get ready on the
morning of our wedding.
Lulu was absolutely amazing support in the lead up to my day, helping me overcome some challenges and taking over the supplier liaising when I was finding it all a bit much - with no fuss just absolutely efficient, organised and calming. On the day I felt like everything was perfect and I was kept informed of everything that I needed to know, I made a last min request to Lulu for moving tables for the evening food to increase dance floor space and I only had to say it briefly to Lulu and it all happened... I would recommend Lulu to anyone that was considering having a wedding planner to help with there big day.

Lulu is extremely professional & meticulous in everything she does. Our wedding was in an empty converted Barn so not the easiest of venues to manage. I found her to be polite, courteous & very engaging with the guests. It was a gem of an idea to have her involved with our wedding even though it was quite short notice when we asked her. I only wish now I had of got her involved from the start of the wedding process! If you are looking to take away the stress of getting married & want a fabulous wedding... then get Lulu involved.
It was a brilliant day!

Lulu was amazing. She stepped in 5 weeks before our
wedding & took the stress away from us completely. She made sure that EVERYTHING ran like clockwork and she was still smiling at the end of a very long day. There are not enough words to describe
how much of a contribution Lulu made to the smooth running of our wedding day. She was amazing and if you are looking for someone to make your vision a reality then Lulu is the very best person
to do this for you.
Thank you so much Lulu!

I found Lulu by chance, I had originally started working with a different wedding planner because I am an American and my husband is from the UK so I thought I needed all the help I could get with planning a wedding in a different country without my family. My original planner was pushy, and did not have my taste in mind when helping plan the day, so I decided to move forward without her help and plan the wedding on my own. After a stressful day, I was searching on the internet and found Lulu's website and decided to give her a call, and it was the BEST decision I ever made. Lulu went above and beyond the call of duty and made our dream wedding a reality! She is someone that I would HIGHLY recommend to any bride and after working with two different planners, I have confidence in saying that Lulu is the best by far!

I contacted Lulu after receiving advice that although I planned my wedding myself that an 'on the day' wedding planner is something i shouldnt go without. She did sooo much more than I expected and ensured my day went by without a hitch. All my suppliers were contacted prior to the event so they all knew Lulu when the big day came around, she made sure everything happened when it should so I didnt have to worry about a thing from the moment i woke up till the end of the night, Cake was boxed up, chalk was out to cover up a stain on my dress, she ensured all my decorations, table settings, candy cart, cupcakes and balloons were sorted in the morning (all things I assumed id have to sort myself), everyone was where they needed to be for things like the first dance, cutting of the cake etc. A last minute problem with napkins and glasses (which I was informed of by the venue and caterers the night before!) was sorted, I never did find out how she did it! I could have asked for a more efficient, on the ball, organised and lovely wedding planner and wouldnt hesitate for a second to recommend Lulu to any bride to be looking for this service or even the full package which im sure would result in the wedding of your dreams!
