A Marquee Wedding



Francesca and Nigel wanted help with their marquee wedding in Somerset, the land of my childhood. I immediately got in the car, travelled down the M4 and went to meet them in a cosy pub to chat through their ideas. They were such a warm couple with a lovely vision of their dream day so I was delighted when the decided to book me for their marquee wedding.

Here’s what Francesca had to say about the process of working with Caroline Sian Weddings & Events to plan their intimate wedding:

“From the moment we met with Caroline, we knew our marquee wedding in Somerset was in the best hands. We’d become overwhelmed trying to organise our perfect day at locations an hour from where we live that didn’t have their own coordinators to help us. 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 (always on hand if we had questions or wanted to know if something was possible) 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.”
