About Me

Caroline Sian Weddings Events Luxury London Wedding Planner

MY APPROACH TO WEDDING PLANNING

As an award-winning wedding planner based in London and Hampshire, I specialise in helping busy couples who are short on time. It’s not about me taking over and running away with your ideas, I adapt to your needs, working with you to create a sophisticated and timeless wedding that balances understated luxury with lots of personal touches.

With over 16 years of experience in events, I’ve planned celebrations around the world, from one of the largest 5 star ballrooms in Europe to a luxury yacht in Florida. But for me, none of that comes close to the pride I feel on a wedding day when I know I’ve created exactly the right setting for two people to celebrate their love. It really is the most meaningful, heartfelt celebration to be a part of, and I’m passionate about exceeding your expectations on every level. It’s just my way of making your day even more special than it is already.

My Clients

DESCRIBE ME AS

Authentic

My corporate background may give me the professional edge as a planner, but I’m all about straight-talking authenticity, which helps me connect with you and ensure we have a lot of fun along the way.

Creative

I’ve got an open mind that is always seeking out new ways to do things, whether that’s building on your idea and taking it to the next level or finding solutions to problems.

Serene

I can handle pressure. Clients relax with me because I make planning seem effortless. In reality, all the hard work is happening below the surface!

Professional

With over 16 years of experience in events, I know how to bring big ideas to life and I’m committed to finding the best options for you. I’m not tied to any suppliers or venues and I don’t accept commission.

Exacting

I believe the secret to a successful wedding is teamwork between suppliers all striving for the highest quality in what they do. I demand the best for your day, leaving no detail to chance.

Exceeded Expectations

“I must have sung Caroline’s praises to my friends and family a hundred times in the lead-up to our wedding, and yet she still exceeded expectations on the day! Once I met with Caroline, I knew she was someone that I could entrust with the biggest day of our lives"

Stacy & Alastair

Success

"We got married in July and of all the decisions we made for our big day, getting Caroline on board was by far the best one! Quite simply, our wedding day would not have been a fraction of the success it was if it wasn’t for Caroline!"

Tracey & Louise

Magical Day

"Caroline made the day a fantastic success, so much so that we were able to enjoy our day knowing Caroline had everything under control.​ She truly made the day magical."

Helen & Andy

Best Hands

"From the moment we met with Caroline, we knew our wedding was in the best hands. She was a complete delight to work with… She took all the stress off our shoulders with her superorganised approach and made planning feel fun again. We had the day we always dreamed of we simply can't recommend her highly enough!"

Francesca & Nigel

WHEN I'M NOT WORKING

I’m lucky enough to have a husband who shares my love of adventure and thinks trekking through the Amazon is a brilliant honeymoon. When we’re at home, the only reason you’ll find me in the kitchen is if I’m dancing or waiting for dinner to be served. But if you ask my friends, they’ll tell you it’s a good job Mark does the cooking! He’s been by my side for 18 years and I can’t think of anyone better to plan my next global adventure with. If only Tuffy, our part-time adopted dog could come too!
