Every wedding I work on is as beautifully unique as the couple it belongs to. Hiring me as your wedding planner means you’ve got someone in your corner to ease your stress, lighten your load and provide advice, support and expertise wherever you need it. It’s your day, it’s your vision; I’m just here to help you bring it together in all its joyful, colourful, gorgeous glory.
Essentially, my services are a mixture of the artistic and the administrative, and I’ll tailor my offering to zone in on the areas in which you need the most assistance. Let’s break it down a little:
This is where we get to grips with the bold, bright and beautiful ideas you have for your day, and streamline them into something cohesive. I’ll work with you to put together a vision board that will form the basis of the brief to all your suppliers.
SUPPLIER SOURCING AND MANAGEMENT
Using my local knowledge and network of connections in Portugal, I’ll suggest a range of talented people who will be able to turn what’s in your head into a reality. The ultimate selection of your suppliers is down to you, but I can vouch for the professionalism and creativity of each one on the shortlist I send you. As the planning progresses, I’ll liaise with all of your chosen suppliers, briefing, negotiating, managing budgets and timelines and being their main point of contact to make sure everything comes together beautifully.
ALL THE PESKY PAPERWORK
There’s no getting away from it – getting married means spreadsheets and paperwork galore. Thankfully, I am something of a wedmin wizard, and can handle all of the timelines, finance planners, payment schedules, contracts and supplier emails, making sure that you stay on track in terms of time and budget.
I’ll be your eyes in Portugal, visiting venues, asking the right questions and helping you to find just the right one for your wedding day. Portugal is my second home – I’m comfortable in the language and I have a host of hidden gems and fabulously authentic local suppliers up my sleeves. Having me on site during your wedding planning journey will guarantee you a smoother and less stressful process, and will help to keep you from racking up air miles unnecessarily.
COORDINATION AND STYLING
For the wedding itself, I’ll be there to set up and style your venue, liaise and manage all the suppliers on the day. I’ll help your guests with any queries they might have, and generally be on hand to ensure everything goes with a bang, leaving you to relax and enjoy your Portuguese wedding adventure.
I price my services in line with your requirements whether it's a partial plan or the whole shebang!
As a guide my full planning services are 10% of your overall budget (minimum fees apply) but I work on a bespoke basis, creating a special quote in line with your budget and needs. An average spend for my clients is €3000+VAT (€3690) for full planning.
Partial plans are calculated on an á la carte basis depending on the services you need.
