THE WEDDING OWL – Wedding Stylist

Because you both want your big day to reflect your true personalities

I work closely with you, your venue and if you’ve already booked them, your suppliers, to develop and create a cohesive look, feel, style and vibe for your wedding.

I help you to bring your vision to life, to ensure that all the details and elements come together, so that when your guests leave your wedding, they say, “wow that really was them!”. If you haven’t already found some or all of the right suppliers, I’m well connected and will recommend suppliers that will add depth and detail to your wedding.

On the day of your wedding, whilst you are being pampered and having fun with your bridal party, I’m working with the suppliers and the venue to make the final adjustments to bring all of the elements together so that you, your partner and your guests are taken aback by the attention to detail.

If you haven’t already chosen a venue or can’t find one that feels like a good fit, I help you find a venue that works with your guest numbers, style and your
budget – I help you, as a couple, to choose your wedding style – romantic, fun, whimsical, chic etc, as choosing your wedding style is one of the most critical aspects of
planning your wedding. It helps set the tone for your day helping to bring all the critical elements together

– I will provide an initial and final design pack of every styling aspect of your day, including your tablescape, use of flowers, candles (if the venue allows), stationery, favours, cake, props, etc so on the day it all comes together seamlessly. – I will recommend suppliers (up to three for every aspect of your day) – I will attend meetings with you and your key suppliers, like your caterers to help share your vision – I’m available to call or email for advice throughout your planning process
– I will attend your final details meeting at your chosen venue – I will be the go-to person on the day of your wedding for all things styling.
– I will attend a meeting at your chosen venue where you would bring along your current vision, mood boards, scrapbook, Pinterest boards etc, and (if you have already chosen, your suppliers. At this meeting, we will focus on what’s important to you and assuming, there is a timeline, what will be important to you in 12,18 or 24 months from now – I will provide five mood boards that ‘fix’ the look, feel style and vibe for your wedding which all of the suppliers will work from, each bringing a touch of their own company brand, personality and style to your wedding but will complement the other creatives.

If you have already got started on your wedding ideas but want me to help pull it together or if you are just getting started, I’m passionate about helping you to create your perfect day.
With over 15 years working in weddings and events, I totally love weddings and in particular, the styling.

– £300 four weeks before your wedding
Please note if I’m instructed and expected to purchase or hire items on your behalf, I will expect to be reimbursed immediately on presentation of the invoices or receipts.

– I am insured to work at premises and have public liability insurance evidence of which I’m happy to send to your chosen venue
– I will ensure any items that are hired will be returned in good time to ensure you are not charged by the supplier
– I will ensure that items are collected in good time, to ensure that we work within the venue’s strict terms and conditions.

Please also note, at each stage your payment is non-refundable. I recommend, if you haven’t already, that you take out wedding insurance.

I look forward to hearing from you and sharing the planning and realisation of your big day.
