Every wedding and every client is different. Its very important to us therefore that the assistance provided matches the circumstances. An initial conversation will highlight what kind of help you need in your package. A consultation is a must have to ensure we fully understand the stage you are at and what is most important to you.
After a brief chat about where you are in planning, a meeting either face to face or via Skype will be organised, to suit your schedule. This two or three hour meeting will allow time to discuss every element and not only how they all piece together but why you made each decision and therefore how important it is. This is incredibly helpful as it may be the only time you can envisage it all together and have chance to step back and analyze the event. Taking the time to picture the styling and atmosphere being created by your ideas will have a huge influence on your steps going forward.
Some clients only need this as then their plans become clearer and the flow apparent. Otherwise this meeting highlights areas of concern or elements you may wish us to handle on your behalf.
Fee: £80 per meeting (plus travel if required)
While you create your lists and tick off tasks, we are a constant sounding board and development friend. As the event management gets more intense or difficulties arise, we will be on hand to offer ideas or advice or both. The level of help will be deciphered during the initial consultation. Even the most organised people need support so get in touch to discuss.
Fee: £40 per hour (Amount per month decided after Consultation but average is 1hr/mnth)
We offer a wedding day coordination service for couples who have planned their wedding independently but who would like an expert to manage the day itself and / or provide support in the weeks before.
This can also include managing the days leading up to the big day if you hope to plan a weekend celebration involving group activities such as excursions, walks, picnics or rehearsal dinners.
On the day we will manage the time keeping, trouble shooting, supplier roles and any type of query or concern so you can concentrate on catching up with family and friends and taking it all in. This ensures no guest has to take the reins for you, they too can enjoy the celebration.
Fee: From £650 (Decided either in your Consultation or added throughout planning, amount depends on tasks handed over & complexity of event)
Additionally, you could have Set Up Assistance from £200 (again depending on complexity of event & tasks given)
Venue Wedding Management
Properties with potential for hosting weddings can utilise the skills and experience of the Weddings by Annabel team. Successful venues have benefited from involving a consultant style service to analyze the offer, create a marketing strategy and relevant wedding packages. This is particularly useful for venues that do not wish to host more than ten weddings a year and would rather eliminate the requirement for employing staff for the key purpose of handling the process. The team, in partnership with the venue, will manage enquirers, tours and the booking process as well as being there for coordination of the event.
