A LUXURY MARQUEE WEDDING IN SUSSEX
Fi & Will had planned a marquee wedding in the grounds of Fi’s family home in East Sussex in June and booked our Yours for the Day Marquee Management service as Fi wanted to ensure that her parents would be parents of the bride on the day of their daughters wedding day, rather than playing host to 120 guests!
Fi planned her wedding herself, handing everything over to me during a meeting in London afew weeks before the big day and then also met with me ‘on site’ the day before the wedding, allowing us to discuss any last minute changes and introduce me to her family and most members of the bridal party.
Fi and Will married in the beautiful local village church not far from the family home in Sussex. Guests were treated to a Champagne and Canapé reception in the beautiful gardens, a delicious dinner in the marquee followed by humorous, very loving speeches and dancing until the early hours! I adore all of my Planned for Perfection couples and the individuality of their weddings, but there was something rather special about Fi and Will’s day – they were surrounded by the most loving, caring and genuinely lovely guests, from Wills cheeky ‘Etonian buddies’, Fi’s ‘Woldingham girls’ , to each and every family member and friend, so many of whom had flown from all over the world to share the special day with this much loved couple … and the only way that I can describe it, is as a genuinely heart warming wedding day!
We asked Jane to be part of our wedding through her “Yours for the day” service, although given that Jane doesn’t do anything by halves, in reality she was looking after us long before the day itself with her award winning expertise, experience and general sense of calm that pervaded everything, so that even before the day began I felt completely safe and happy in her hands!
I was particularly worried that my parents would have a great deal of stress on the day as the wedding reception was taking place in a marquee in their garden, but Jane dealt with everything so efficiently that nobody, including my parents, even noticed when there was the odd problem to deal with as Jane had already dealt with it! She made the whole thing run like clockwork and was an absolute pleasure to have around during such a special time.
Thank you Jane for everything!
Fi & Will
What a wonderful wedding and so much of our enjoyment was have you to oversee, offer advice and help out in all sorts of ways. You were wonderful and from the moment you arrived on the Friday you took away all the stress of organising what was by far the biggest party we have given here. I am in no doubt that your excellent ‘eye’ was very much responsible for everything running so smoothly – and judging by the very many letters I have already received it was indeed a triumph and magical day for Fi and Will.
With our grateful thanks and very best wishes, Rachel and Mike – Mother and Father of the Bride
