Wedding Planning Packages

Here I have listed the questions I commonly get asked. If you are unable to find the answer that you are looking for, please don’t hesitate to get in touch at delight@weddingsbyzoe.co.uk and I will be delighted to help.

No, not at all. Wedding planners are for anyone who would like a beautiful and special wedding but need some help and guidance along the way, regardless of their budget. Whatever you want to achieve, Weddings by Zoë can help with as much or as little of the planning as required, whether it is full organisation for the event from start to finish, help choosing the perfect venue or a specific supplier, or someone to coordinate proceedings on the day itself.
Weddings by Zoë have excellent contacts and will always identify the most suitable suppliers for each client’s requirements, budget and style. Suppliers will often be happy to offer a discount or add-on services to clients as a result of the relationship built with Weddings by Zoë.
The wedding planning service provided by Weddings by Zoë is completely bespoke and as such, it is difficult to give an exact price until we have met for a consultation as every wedding is different and every couple have their own particular requirements.  Following on from a full complimentary consultation where we will discuss every aspect of your wedding, including what you want to achieve and the budget you have in mind, I will produce a complete and detailed proposal for you, which will outline the full cost.  When you are satisfied with the proposal you can then choose to proceed with the booking.  For a general guide to my pricing, please take a look at the planning services page.
You absolutely can organise your wedding in the way that you want. Weddings by Zoë will not come along and change your ideas or ignore your wishes. Zoë will offer suggestions and recommend ideas, but ultimately the decision is yours. There are so many tasks to undertake and jobs to do in the build up to a wedding, that having Weddings by Zoë on hand will prove indispensable to help you to create a theme, take over the administrative side of the organising, to ensure timescales are adhered to and to assist you with managing your budget. I am also always on hand to offer advice and a sounding board for ideas.
The wedding industry is largely un-regulated, which is why Weddings by Zoë is a member of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners (UKAWP) whose primary aim is to promote professionalism in wedding planning.

Members of the UKAWP are strictly vetted to ensure they adhere to their code of business practice and are fully insured, to give you peace of mind when hiring a wedding planner to organise your special day.

Many venues offer the services of an in-house wedding coordinator, but it should be remembered that their priority lies with the venue and they are not responsible for helping you with the organisation in the build-up to your day.  Also if you are having your wedding ceremony in a church or an alternative venue, your reception venue coordinator will not have any dealings with this part of the day.  In many cases, in-house coordinators are not actually available on the day of your wedding, they often hand over to an on-the-day coordinator who will not necessarily be familiar with you or your particular requirements.

Weddings by Zoë works with you alone.  My sole priority is to ensure that everything is perfect for your wedding day and you will always deal directly with me.  I will be with you at every step of the way, from the initial planning stages, right up to and including the day itself.  I will be on hand to make sure that everything runs smoothly, everyone is in the right place at the right time and any glitches are dealt with promptly and discreetly.  Ultimately, I am there to ensure you have a truly wonderful and unforgettable day!

Absolutely not! It is not good considered good practice to take commission from suppliers, as this does not enable wedding planners to offer impartial advice and to be able to recommend suppliers based purely upon their merit or suitability for the client’s requirements. As a member of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners, Weddings by Zoë adheres to their strict codes of business practice, which guarantees that Weddings by Zoë will not accept any form of commission from suppliers, but will in all circumstances pass any discount offered, directly to the client.

From sourcing local suppliers to planning your perfect day, Weddings by Zoë can help create your special occasion.
