About Weddings by Zoë
Wedding Planning in South Wales and the South West of England
Weddings by Zoë is owned and operated by me, Zoë Binning, a professional wedding planner, coordinator and event organiser specialising in creating beautiful and bespoke events. I am located near Cardiff and organise weddings across South Wales including Newport, Cardiff and Swansea and throughout South West England, from Bristol and Gloucestershire, Somerset and Devon and down to Cornwall. I am an Associate member of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners (UKAWP) and readily adhere to their ethics and strict code of business practice. I am also fully insured to give you peace of mind and reassurance when booking my wedding planning services.
Professionally trained with in-depth industry knowledge
I am always able to offer expert advice and guidance for any wedding that I am involved with. I have attended in-depth training courses with the UKAWP (www.ukawp.com) and strive to continually develop my knowledge, experience and understanding of the wedding industry and to keep abreast of current trends, through regular training and networking with local and national wedding industry bodies.
How I work
I am cheerful, enthusiastic, extremely organised and highly professional with an excellent eye for detail. Every event I organise is individually tailored, beautifully created and perfectly executed, ensuring you have a wonderful wedding day that both meets your requirements and exceeds your expectations. I take all of the stress away, leaving you able to relax and enjoy each minute of your day, safe in the certainty that every aspect of the planning and organisation is expertly taken care of.
My interest in all things weddings began a couple of years before my own big day. Over the course of three years, my husband and I had been invited to over 30 weddings, so by the time I got round to planning our own, we had attended almost every type of wedding imaginable and developed great insights into what does and does not work.
With a background in retail design and project management and with the initial experience of planning my wedding and those of friends, a new idea started to take shape. After having two children, the opportunity to work from home and to be able to be flexible to work evenings and weekends around my family, made wedding planning the perfect fit and ‘Weddings by Zoë’ was born.
