I started Finesse Planning (www.finesseplanning.com) over 8 years ago to offer a design led planning service for couples wanting something personal and unique. Since then I have helped hundreds of couples achieve their perfect wedding whilst having fun during the planning process. I also had the honour of winning The 2013 Wedding Industry Awards for Best Wedding Planner (Independent).
As a design led wedding planner, one of the most enjoyable elements of my work is preparing the ‘Design Book’. After an initial discussion with my couple, I go away and use their ideas, wants, dreams and desires to produce a complete design proposal for their wedding. This 13 page book is then presented for them to choose the elements of the wedding they wish to have such as stationery, floral arrangements, attire, furniture, lighting, not forgetting the tableware plus so much more.
From the beginning of the journey to the very end, I work very closely with my couples, building a relationship that exceeds that of a normal wedding planner/client so that I can gain a true understanding of the type of wedding they are looking to create. It is so important to me that the wedding truly represents the both of them and this is why I facilitate them with ideas, so they can make the final decisions on every element of the wedding.
When working on the design book, with all of my weddings I immediately go straight to Whitehouse Event Crockery’s website for inspiration and to choose items to propose to my clients. Without fail there is always something that works with any scheme. For a recent wedding, the original scheme was to include the gold beaded daisy plate, however, after a lovely visit from Marc with an array of new products, I knew instantly that the pink Sienna charger would work perfectly with the Alex glassware and would add something unique to the popular blush and silver scheme. It didn’t disappoint!
I always take amazing pride in my weddings and have a reputation for my attention to detail and by using the products from Whitehouse Event Crockery I know that I will achieve the high-end luxury look that my clients expect. Every item is meticulously measured at each place setting, ensuring they are presented in the best possible way giving me that exceptionally polished result. Without fail, whenever I have presented the completed room with the full set up to the couple, they are always blown away by how beautiful it looks and I can honestly say that it would be so much harder to achieve the same reaction if I didn’t use the
fabulous service from Whitehouse Event Crockery Hire, here’s to lots more wonderful events together!
