REVIEW: Helen & Dean's lovely words
These generous and unbelievably kind words from Helen & Dean brought a tear to my eye... genuinely made up to have been part of their incredible day:
What can we say about Sharelle? Lovely, creative, super organised to name just a few things!
We wanted a totally unique wedding, so initially booked our venue and then went scouting for our suppliers such as food, bar, tables and chairs. What we hadn’t thought about at that stage was who was going to organise everyone during the run up to the wedding and on the day itself.
Our photographer felt that based on previous experience, we should have an event organiser for the day to make sure that it ran smoothly, and recommended Sharelle to us. As soon as we met her we knew that we wanted to have her help with our day. Part of the ethos of our day was that we used independent suppliers, and we booked a lot of our suppliers based on whether we felt like we connected with them when we spoke – we didn’t want to use anyone who made us feel that we were just part of the big ‘wedding machine’. Sharelle fitted in perfectly with this, and so we booked her! J
In the lead up to the wedding, we handed over the reins to Sharelle to deal directly with our suppliers, which definitely takes the pressure off when you’re leading up to such a big event.
We spent the day before the wedding prepping our venue, decorating and getting everything ready. Sharelle made us some giant letters which everyone loved, and we used some of her bunting and fairy lights – we’d definitely recommend hiring these bits and pieces from her rather than trying to spend forever making it!
On the day, she was a godsend, we didn’t have to worry about sorting out our suppliers, timings, speeches etc… it all just seemed to magically happen! Our room was turned around and laid out by Sharelle, which again we didn’t even realise was happening. Everything ran perfectly smoothly, and there were no hitches or issues, which we’d say was pretty much totally down to Sharelle!
We guess when you’re first organising your wedding, you might think that you don’t really need an event organiser, or someone to help in the lead up to the day. Our advice would be that you definitely do – who wants to be telling their guests where to get a taxi from, or letting one of the suppliers know where to find a tap when you’re all suited and booted and have bigger things on your mind?! It really takes away the stress and lets you focus on marrying your other half rather than the ins and outs of the day.
Sharelle was just brilliant, she helped to make our wedding perfect and I think we probably need a Sharelle for all of lifes planning!
