Kind Words - Wedding Planner Reviews & Testimonials

"Dear Hayley, thank you so much for organising our amazing party.

It was a 21st birthday and 23rd birthday and 25th wedding anniversary all rolled into one - and we didn’t want it to be like a wedding, you absolutely nailed it. All your suppliers were lovely people to deal with but also delivered superbly. The highlight has got to be the caterers and that amazing beef for 125 people which can’t be easy and it was cooked to perfection…. My friends are still talking about it!

The whole evening ran like clock work, our guests commented on how lovely the waiting staff were and also the lovely chaps sorting out the cars. The marquee looked absolutely beautiful and the DJ was superb.

An incredible evening, it just all went too quickly.

Wonderful wonderful memories."

"We involved Hayley as our wedding coordinator for our June 2023 wedding at the Barns at Lodge Farm - and it was definitely the best decision we made for our entire wedding!! Hayley came on 8 weeks prior to our wedding and from then on we felt completely safe and reassured and as though our wedding was in the most capable hands.

Hayley is a dedicated, kind, detailed, and creative wedding expert and she made our dream wedding a reality. Our suppliers all commented on how amazing working with Hayley was and how organised the day was leading up to and during the wedding.

She made our wedding planning feel so much easier, less stressful and organised and we couldn’t have done it without her. I cannot recommend Hayley enough and am so grateful for her support coordinating our wedding and bringing it all to life!


Sophie & Chris June 2023

"We hired Hayley as a day-off co-ordinator for our wedding in July.

Hayley was wonderful from the moment we hired her. I was initially unsure about the need for a day-off co-ordinator but at my fiancée's suggestion we hired one and with Hayley there were absolutely no regrets or doubts about the value she brought. She was incredible and contributed massively to our enjoyment of the big day. In particular, I noticed the following:

- Incredibly organised / knowledgeable: Right from our first meeting Hayley was so organised and detailed. She thought of a huge range of details that we would have never thought of and it gave us great confidence that everything was in hand (up until this point it had been getting a bit overwhelming)

- Super responsive: Hayley set-up a WhatsApp group with us and any time we had any questions she replied incredibly quickly and usefully! Very helpful especially on the morning of  or days before

- Friendly: Hayley and her assistant were so so friendly on the day, they made everyone feel so welcome and at ease on the day. It really helped create the right atmosphere of fun and happiness even before the wedding was properly underway

- Smooth day-off execution: Hayley's execution on the day was exceptional. From the big things such as directing the set-up of the catering, right through to the small things such as timing music for our MC. She was perfectly in control at all times and always seemed to be prepared and in the right place at the right time (including for the one or two inevitable minor emergencies).

Overall we couldn't be more complimentary of Hayley and all she did, absolutely fantastic!"


Marie & Ollie July 2023

"Hiring Hayley was honestly the best decision! She made the process so relaxing and did an amazing job liaising with all the suppliers and taking all of the stress and boring bits out of the day.

On the day it didn’t stop raining and she dealt with everything perfectly and ensured it all ran smoothly.

I wouldn’t have a wedding without her! Thanks Hayley."


Phoebe & Danny July 2023

"Hayley was amazing! I would definitely recommend. We opted for the on the day coordination but Hayley did so much more than that. She was efficient at liaising with vendors in the weeks leading up to the event and her attention to detail made me feel confident she would have everything covered on the wedding day, which she did. Our wedding day was the best day I could have asked for and everybody commented on how well organised it was which we couldn’t have achieved without Hayley and her assistant - I’m normally a worrier but I wasn’t worried at all on the day. Hayley gave us great tips when we met around 8 weeks before the wedding to ask suppliers to ensure the day went without a hitch. Thank you Hayley for helping us with a day we’ll never forget!"


Lauren & Giles April 2023

"We had the most wonderful wedding, and the best day of our lives - and this was very much entirely down to Hayley. We cannot recommend her highly enough! She is amazing!

She works incredibly hard, and her passion for sorting out every fine detail (some we would never even thought of!), enabled us to have a day ourselves and our families will treasure forever.

We had a tipi wedding, doing a lot ourselves and also having many vendors and suppliers to organise, and Hayley did this with ease. Everyone knew what they where doing and turned up on time with Hayley’s perfect timeline all organised. She made us feel so relaxed on the day, and weeks leading up to the day, knowing everything was in hand. She literally made our dream day a possibility, and we can’t thank her enough!

Thank you so much Hayley."


Melody & Joe August 2022

"Hiring Hayley was one of the best decisions we have ever made. I don’t have the words to thank her enough! From the very beginning I knew she’d be brilliant, she knew immediately the kind of vibe I was going for and had so many hints and tips of things along the way. In the run up to the wedding when we were both so busy at work we weren’t worried about a single thing as we knew Hayley had it all under control and had thought of everything - from extra ice, to teaspoons to straws!

And throughout the whole thing she went above and beyond what was needed to do to make it perfect- helping with our name places and even folding napkins and buying us such a beautiful and special present. On the day itself we honestly couldn’t have done it without Hayley.

It was by far the best money we spent to be able to enjoy the day without a single worry or drama. I’m sure we don’t even know the half of what Hayley did to make it all go perfectly behind the scenes but every single guest commented on how smoothly everything ran, how they always had whatever they needed and how perfect everything was. We will be forever grateful to Hayley for giving us our dream day and would recommend her 100 times over!"


Sarah and Reece, July 2022

"Hiring Hayley was the best decision we made with regards to the planning & execution of our wedding!
Hayley was invaluable throughout the whole process, pointing out things we never would have thought about. No detail was overlooked or missed!

Hayley helped us to feel relaxed and assured during what could have been quite a stressful period, which is exactly what you need when getting ready for a wedding! She understood our vision completely & recommended some great suppliers. She is not just extremely efficient, professional and organised, but the loveliest person to work with & very quickly she felt more like a friend than a wedding planner!

The wedding day itself ran smoothly and we could really relax & enjoy it knowing that Hayley was in charge & everything was taken care of. We loved every single second & even guests and family members commented on how seamlessly it all ran!

We would highly recommend Hayley to anyone planning their wedding. It was the best money ever spent, THANK YOU a million!!!"


Emma & Chris June 2022

"Hayley was brilliant from start to finish. She helped me to plan my 40th birthday event which I was struggling to find time for. Hayley was perfectly organised from start to finish, helping to source brilliant suppliers, liaise with them and offer me excellent advice from all her experience of event planning. You will not be disappointed if you choose Hayley to support you in whatever special event you are planning. She took the stress out of everything and the party was perfect! I could not recommended highly enough!"


Sheryl July 2022

"Hayley, thank you for all your hard work, we really couldn’t have done it without you! You made our wedding day run perfectly, and for that we are so grateful."


Olivia & Andreas May 2022

"The most amazing wedding planner we could have ever wished for. Nothing was ever too much , thank you Hayley".


Caitlin & Leah August 2022

"It’s hard to know where to begin to explain how amazing Hayley is! Anyone thinking of hiring Hayley to plan their wedding or event, stop thinking about it and do it!

From our first meeting all those years ago she has been incredible, through a global pandemic numerous lockdowns, date & venue changes, family emergencies she has been so kind and thoughtful and completely took away all the stress and worry.

From our very first meeting she understood exactly what was important to us and what we wanted from our day and delivered the wedding day(s) of our dreams. Which we would never have been able to do without her. In fact having been postponed a number of times I don’t think we would have been able to go through with it if it wasn’t for Hayley.

She is incredibly thoughtful, kind and caring, and just an all round amazing person! Even just checking in during the pandemic to make sure we were all ok! I will miss our catch ups!

Having had a particularly tough couple of years I could never thank Hayley enough for giving us the perfect day(s) with our nearest and dearest!

Thank you! Thank You! Thank You"


Jayne & Georgie June 2022

"We hired Hayley as our on the day coordinator for our wedding last October. From the first meeting I knew Hayley was a true professional and an expert in her field but also one of the loveliest ladies you will ever meet. She is truly worth her weight in gold.

I was able to enjoy my wedding day completely and that was down to Hayley. She had everything under control from 8am until the last guest left. All my friends and family commented on how lovely she is and how she has every planned to perfection with no stress and quietly working her magic always with a smile on her face.

She thought of everything, every last detail and worked so well with all my suppliers Thank you Hayley, we honestly couldn't have done it without you".


Lauren & Russ October 2021

"Hayley is amazing and curated our perfect wedding. We had no idea where to start with planning a wedding but, Hayley lead us through the process seamlessly - at no point did we feel overwhelmed or stressed. She found us brilliant suppliers, the most stunning wedding venue and kept track of everything - even the small details you wouldn't think of.

We would highly recommend Hayley and her services - she is talented, well organised and takes the time to understand what you want from your event. Not only were we extremely happy, our guests commented on how brilliant and attentive she is."


Sophie & Ravi October 2021

"Honestly cannot recommend Hayley higher, she was the best money we spent on our wedding! From the first call with Hayley we knew she was the right on the day coordinator for us. We were getting married in my parents garden and so knew we needed someone to be the go to person on the day, but Hayley was so much more than that! We had a few meetings before the wedding to help with planning and Hayley had so many helpful suggestions.

On the day Hayley went above and beyond, she was calm and effective, helped move things and people, and generally made everything run smoothly, she was also just a lovely presence on the day. Lots of our guests remarked at how amazing she was. I would and have recommended Hayley to friends to any event/wedding, she's incredible! "


Allie & Liam July 2021

"We hired Hayley to plan a post wedding garden party for us, from the very first meeting she gave us full confidence that what we planned could be achieved and also brought forward several new ideas. Very quickly she turned around suggestions for caterers, entertainment, marquees etc etc followed up by quotations and contracts.

What stood out for us was her professionalism, can do attitude and her technical knowledge of what could and couldn't be achieved, so we were very confident in our final proposals. She is extremely responsive too and nothing is too much trouble. Our party could not go ahead in the end because of Covid 19, but Hayley took care of all the cancelling and deposit returns for us , we were so happy with her work that we paid her the full fee, and will definitely use her again for any events in the future."


Carol & Trevor July 2020

“Hayley, I just wanted to send you through a quick message to say a very very big thank you!  I can honestly say I had the best day of my life yesterday!  The day ran so smoothly thanks to all your hard work.  You were a fantastic support and I felt so reassured having you there.  We had so many comments re how well organised the day was."


Victoria & Rickie The Railway Barn 22nd June 2019

“Thank you very much Hayley for all you did in helping plan my big 50th birthday party! I would never have been able to pull all the suppliers together without you! The marquee, food, lighting, music, decorations were all wonderful and I had the best time without all the stress and worry! The only thing you couldn’t help me with was the weather but luckily that was brilliant too!"


Clare, May 2018

“I cannot recommend Hayley enough, she understood exactly what I wanted to achieve on my wedding day and executed it to a high standard. Hayley is both professional and personable, her organisation is amazing.

If you’re considering contacting Hayley to assist in your big day, do it. You will not regret it.”


Amanda Herbert, April 2018

“Hayley has been awesome from start to finish.

From first meeting her I knew I wanted her to coordinate my wedding.

We had a dry hire venue which resulted in a lot of work, but Hayley was always the one that asked the questions no-one thought of, and contacted me with useful information.

All of our guests commented on how awesome she was! She is professional yet friendly and the most organised person I think I have ever met!

She is worth her weight in gold, and my day wouldn’t have been what it was without her.

Thanks for everything you did for us Hayley, can’t explain the difference your presence made throughout it all. All our love.”


Ruby & Jamie, August 2018

"We got married a couple of weeks ago and Hayley was our co-ordinator for the day. Our wedding was fairly complicated with lots of different vendors on the day. I am super organised and the fact I couldn’t spend the day making sure it all ran well terrified me, so I knew I had to track down someone who I could trust to be as organised as I am and so it in a no fuss, no hassle way! And I am so very glad I found Hayley!!

From the first meeting to the day after, I had total confidence in Hayley, any issues we had on the day and before were sorted instantly, we were kept informed without being told things we didn’t need to know on the day itself. I trusted Hayley 100% with the running of my wedding, and that was a huge thing!

Thank you so much to Hayley and her team for helping us to have the day I had hoped and dreamed for. Guests on the day commented during and after how brilliant you were too!"
