I’m delighted to announce that last month I was awarded Independent Wedding Planner of the Year (South Central region) at The Wedding Industry Awards 2018. These are the only awards I enter, primarily because they are the only ones based on client reviews as well as the judge’s assessment. I’m so thankful to every single one of my 2017 couples who took the time to submit reviews to the organisers.
I’ve been managing events for 16 years now and knowing that I’m still delighting my couples means so much to me. As the awards compere said, over the period of planning a wedding, a planner really gets to know her couples and a strong friendship often develops. This meant that, apparently, the wedding planner category had some of the strongest reviews of any category. Here are two such examples:
“From the moment we met with Caroline, we knew our wedding was in the best hands. Not only did she quickly draw up a plan of action and immediately set about getting everything back on course, but she really listened to exactly what we had envisioned for our celebration and made it a reality – adding plenty of clever suggestions and extra touches along the way. She was a complete delight to work with and she and her lovely assistant, Stephanie, were fantastic on the day. In fact, we had several of our guests comment to us how lovely she was, which didn’t surprise us at all because she is! She took all the stress off our shoulders with her super-organised approach and made planning feel fun again. We had the day we always dreamed of – we simply can’t recommend her highly enough.”

“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! Honestly, bringing Caroline on board was the best decision I made for my wedding, second only to my choice of husband! Every step of the way, Caroline was professional, efficient, receptive and friendly. She took all of my many (and believe me, there were many!) requests and executed them all perfectly. She ensured that our day looked and ran perfectly, and we genuinely can’t thank her enough!”
