Luxury London Wedding - The Barbican & Southwalk Cathedral
I recently got married in London and used Planned for Perfection as my wedding planner. Jane immediately took over the organisation and challenges of dealing with the many different aspects associated with my wedding. The attention to detail was amazing and the support offered to my family and I was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble and the guidance offered was always excellent. Jane and her team’s commitment to ensuring everything went smoothly on the day made it a very memorable time for everyone. Using Planned for Perfection as my wedding planner was the best decision I made and I would thoroughly recommend Jane and her team to any other bride. Fabulous service, thank you for everything!

Luxury London Wedding - The Barbican & Southwalk Cathedral
Dear Jane,
Just a short note to say thank you so much for all your hard work last weekend, which made Henrietta’s and Joe’s wedding day the success that it was. On a personal note, I so appreciated your support, it gave me the strength to remain calm and measured when things got a little emotional.
I think the garden room looked stunning and the conservatory was spectacular, it is such a beautiful venue!
Jane, I can’t thank you enough for all you did to make it such an amazing day keeping us in check; you are a true professional.
With very best wishes and many many heartfelt thanks.

Luxury Hindu Wedding - Elmore Court
We are very pleased to provide a testimonial. We had the Planned for Perfection “Finishing Touches Service”. Having planned the initial details and arranged the suppliers for our wedding we wanted to be able to enjoy the day knowing that someone had everything under control.
We met with Jane a few months before the wedding day and we instantly knew we had made the right choice. Jane is professional, warm and someone who we knew we could trust with our special day. She was able to understand straight away how we would want things and provided us with suggestions and ideas that we would never have considered ourselves.
6 weeks before the wedding we handed all the details over to Jane and we felt a big weight lift off our shoulders.
For us and our guests, the day was truly perfect – any issues that may have arisen were dealt with by Jane without us even knowing about it.
We wholeheartedly recommend Jane and Planned for Perfection – 5* service from a great person.

Jane is the ultimate wedding and event planner, a consummate professional. She thinks of everything and no detail is too small, which makes for a smooth and seamless event. I always enjoy working with her and I love the fact that she is client centric; everything she does is about them!

Luxury Cotswold Wedding - Pittville Pump Room Cheltenham
Dearest Jane,
Please don’t think that my delayed reply means that I truly do not appreciate what you did for us and for my sanity during the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself! I have been following you on Instagram and I am just so amazed and proud to say that “P4P” planned my wedding day too!  You gave us such a special day and when I look at all of the amazing places your gift takes you, I am just so happy that you helped me…..a girl who never thought she would get married had the best day of her life!
When it came to wedding planning, I had no idea where to start! I had found my gorgeous venue [Pittville Pump Rooms in Cheltenham] and whilst looking through their list of approved vendors I came across Planned for Perfection. When I researched Jane, I was really excited and I just knew that she would get my vision without me even having to speak – a skill that came in very handy when we first met!
Looking through her past weddings and reading her testimonials, I could see that she really enjoyed what she did and it wasn’t just a business to her, she clearly enjoys planning weddings and has a great eye for all different styles of weddings in simple, amazing, luxurious and beautifully romantic settings.
When I first went to meet Jane at the venue, the amazingness of the venue literally rendered me speechless…..and I mean literally, I was totally overwhelmed!  I couldn’t even make any decisions, but by asking me lots of questions and suggesting lots of ideas, Jane got my vision and I knew immediately, that she would create the look I was going for, which was timeless, elegant, Hollywood glamour!
Jane would check in with me regularly and see how things were going and as the wedding day got closer and closer, Jane kept me calm in the madness of it all!
Jane was amazing, as well as working her magic in organising everything, the order of the day was so precise, she made sure that all of the individual suppliers knew exactly what they were meant to be doing and she was a calming influence when I was overwhelmed with everything and everyone!
The morning of my wedding was so relaxing I even managed to have a little nap!
There were numerous calls from my London guests telling me that it was snowing, there were hailstones and torrential rain, but I didn’t worry because it was all in hand and I knew that it would all be ok, whatever the weather! Jane was like a fairy that sprinkled magic dust on the whole day and it was perfect….even the sun came out!
My guests were amazed by the whole day, Jane made everyone feel so comfortable and I was so happy to have her expertise and support. She also works so well as a team player with all suppliers to ensure the best day. In particular with Ben Roberts, our amazing photographer, who was also the absolute best!
All I can say is that Jane is amazing and I couldn’t and wouldn’t recommend anyone else to plan your special day! She is absolutely fabulous and is forever a huge part of one of the happiest days of my life.
I mean every single word – Thank you so so much to Jane!
Lots and lots of love

Luxury 21st Birthday Party - The Cotswolds
Jane was the best party planner I ever could have wished for! She listened to every aspect of how I imagined my 21st, then made it reality! Her support, guidance and organisation were AMAZING. I feel extremely lucky to have had Janes help with the party, she made it better than I could have imagined. Planned for Perfection says it all really! My family and I would highly recommend her and hopefully we will be working together again soon!

Aurelie & Gareth at Manor by the Lake

Writing this review has proven difficult because it’s difficult to put into words how much Jane has done for Matt and I in helping our wedding dreams come true!
When I first met Jane I instantly felt a connection, she was so easy to talk to and I knew that she was going to do a fantastic job making not one, but two wedding days a dream come true.
Jane held our hands every step of the way during our wedding planning journey, from showing us potential wedding venues, save the dates, wedding stationery, suit hire, wedding dress shopping, menu tasting venue styling, florists and all of the entertainment for our wedding. Along the way, we were faced with some personal dramas, but Jane always remained professional and calm (even when I was at times, loosing the will to live!). Jane always found us a sensible solution and always helped us to overcome the problems we were facing.
Matt and I have received endless amounts of compliments on how our wedding was the best wedding they have been to! Jane not only became a good friend to me during the wedding planning, she created our perfect day – our wedding really was the best day of our lives and I can truly say, this is because our wedding really was ‘Planned for Perfection’!

Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire Wedding with Planned for Perfection
Jane
This little note could never express how grateful we are for all that you have done for us! We had so much going on whilst trying to organise the wedding & you were truly a lifesaver. We would never have got this wedding off the ground without you & we honestly don’t know how anyone can plan a wedding without you & your team! You were so helpful in negotiating our venue contract & helping us to find the perfect wedding vendors, always able to cater for our particular needs and tastes, which we know was no easy task!
You thought of all the little things that make a big impact, ones that we never would have considered on our own. Thank you for your time, your talent & for making everything run so smoothly. Michael was sceptical about hiring a wedding planner, but now we are on the other side of this wonderful experience, we know hiring you was the best decision that we made for our wedding. From start to finish you helped us plan the wedding day or our dreams & we will always be grateful to you for that… No one should ever get married without you Jane, you truly are amazing at what you do & we would recommend you to anyone looking for an event planner.

Forest of Dean Wedding - Traditional Hindu Ceremony & Manor by the Lake, Cheltenham with Planned for Perfection
TESTIMONIAL: From the very moment I spoke to Jane I knew she would be an excellent person to help organise and run our wedding. She is a lovely, bubbly, warm person and she did everything we asked and thought about things that we hadn’t. She was a great support and we both knew we were in capable hands.
The service she provided was absolutely brilliant – both in terms of organisation and making us feel good and calm – I would recommend her to anyone!
Thank you so much for being part of our day and making it so perfect.

THANK YOU:Thank you for being part of our special weekend and for all of your help and support on the day and leading up to our wedding.
We couldn’t have got there without you – thank you so much!

Wedding at Manor House at Castle Combe with Planned for Perfection
TESTIMONIAL: Planning a wedding in England while living in California is admittedly not an easy task. Following my first call with Jane, however, my nerves were immediately calmed as I knew she was exactly the one I needed to help select and coordinate with vendors and organize all the logistics for my wedding day. Not only does Jane have impeccable taste, but she has an inherent understanding of what I wanted and how best to work with me. Her approach to planning reflected my own: enthusiastic yet acutely aware it’s the small details that make an event fantastic. I was also overwhelmed by selecting vendors from overseas, and Jane’s suggestions proved to be absolutely wonderful vendors.
A few days before my wedding I asked Jane a question and she replied: “Of course that is possible. It is your wedding and anything is possible.” I believe that response best summarizes Jane; her genuine desire to make your wedding day perfect and her unrelenting efforts to make sure it happens. On the day of the wedding, we had guests from all over the world who have all told me that my wedding was the best they have ever been to. I attribute this to Jane and will always be thankful for her.

THANK YOU: Jane, We cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work leading up to and on the wedding day.  I knew from the first conversation we had last year that you were exactly the wedding planner that I needed!
Really, I am so appreciative and so grateful for all of your help. It was a joy to work with you and I never ever worried for a moment that anything would go wrong with you behind the scenes.
I also loved everyone that you suggested working with and really can’t be happier with how everything turned out.
It really was perfect!

Traditional Indian Wedding - Surrey & The Cotswolds with Planned for Perfection
Part 1 at Wooton Hall Hotel in Surrey
After getting engaged we decided having a wedding planner on the ground in the UK would be a smart move as we live in Australia.  We were looking for someone who would partner with us on this fabulous journey of planning our dream day.  We weren’t looking for someone to run the show but someone to suggest things and be our eyes and ears on the ground.  After contacting a few planners and talking to three we knew in an instant that Jane was the lady for us.  From our first Skype call Jane was warm, friendly and most importantly listened to us.
Our wedding was going to be December 2015 and the theme was ‘East meets West” with 14 months to plan the wedding we flew to the UK in September 2014 to meet Jane, look at venues and meet florists and cake makers and do food tastings.  Jane had all this arranged and planned for us before we arrived and we were excited and felt in control and couldn’t wait to see all our plans come together.
December 2014 we got a call from the UK to say that my mother had been diagnosed with lung cancer and that time was of the essence so we decided to do a separate wedding ceremony that my Mum could be part of, I didn’t know how I was going to make this happen but I called Jane and she made me feel at ease and that it was all going to be OK.   Arriving in the UK on the 9th of December Jane had an understanding of what I wanted and needed to achieve to be able to share a special day with my mum and our close family.
Within a week, Jane had helped me secure a venue a date, a catering company, flowers, a photographer and cake.  To make things more complicated, we were planning a traditional Hindu wedding but somehow Jane used her contacts and her expertise in wedding planning to pull off an entire wedding in 4 weeks (with Christmas and New Year in between!).  The results were out of this world and we could not have asked for a better day. Everything was perfect and the day ran without a hitch.  Without Jane achieving this would have been almost impossible but her knowledge of all things weddings and her network and relationships with vendors made this all come together.
This was Part 1 of our two-part wedding; we are still going ahead with our original wedding date later this year and Jane continues to support and help us plan this exciting journey.  She always gets back to us promptly; you would never know there is a 8 hour time difference.  Jane has ideas for all elements of your day and always works with what you want and your vision.  We cannot wait to see the results for Part II.
Part 2 at Elmore Court, Gloucestershire
Dear Jane
Just a quick note to say a big thank you for helping us create a beautiful and magical day, AGAIN!  You have been a huge support to us over the last year and words aren’t enough… You have helped make what felt like impossible, very possible – you are a superstar!
Thank you so much for everything, you are an amazing person.
Lots of love

It was a pleasure to work with Jane on a wedding which took place in the Lancaster Ballroom at the Savoy.  Despite having very limited time to plan, Jane was perfectly calm throughout the entire process and was an absolute dream to work with on the wedding day.  Jane is very efficient and has a wonderful eye for detail.  She cares deeply about her clients and ensures that they have the most fabulous wedding day – any couple would be lucky to have her by their side.

Thank you for the bottom of our hearts for  giving us the most perfect day, you really did. I am sure that it was stressful behind the scenes, but you never, ever, gave us any inkling that it was anything other than a pleasure. Thank you so so much

Jane
Where do we start to thank you?
From our first meeting with you, pretty much a year ago from our wedding, you have “held our hands” from the beginning to end.
The support and experience you offer is absolutely incredible and for a couple with not so many pairs of hands to delegate to, we seriously couldn’t have done it without you. Your professional and can-do attitude saved us from many a close call and you acknowledged our frustration, generally with humour, which was the best tonic.
Having you as part of our wedding day itself was also invaluable, we will both really miss you and all our wedding planning chats and wish you and your business all the very best.
Keep in touch

Jane was truly a star in ensuring our wedding day went off without a hitch. She worked very professionally at every step of the planning process and worked tirelessly on our big day. Thinking on her feet, improvising and doing whatever needed to be done throughout the day to ensure that everything ran smoothly. EVERYONE sang her praises, from our family members to our chosen wedding suppliers, which simply confirmed what a star she is. We really can’t recommend her enough! Thank you so much Jane. xx

Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway - Nina & Graham
From the first meeting with Jane, our minds were put at rest. We told Jane the type of wedding we hoped for and she made suggestions along the way. As our wedding was on board a Steam train, we knew there may be logistical issues to overcome. We need not have worried, in the months before our wedding, Jane visited us at home, going over all the fine details – she was in regular contact with the staff at the Train station and our photographer. On the day of our wedding, Jane was at the station hours before us, sorting out the rings, favours, carriages, seating, guests etc. When we arrived, she calmed our nerves, fixed my hair before I made my entrance and organised the Caldicot Male Voice Choir to start singing as she led the way for us to walk down onto the platform, to greet our waiting family and friends.
Jane worked tirelessly to make sure everything went smoothly for us on our big day. Weeks later friends were still talking about how well organised the wedding was and how much they had enjoyed it – this is all thanks to Jane. We would highly recommend Planned for Perfection to anybody wanting a perfect wedding day.

Fiona & Will
Dear Jane,
What a wonderful wedding and so much of our enjoyment was to 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’  and attention to every little detail, 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,

Jane was absolutely amazing! As soon as I met her I knew she was the lady to help me with my wedding planning.  Her kind caring nature and enthusiasm for the task in hand made me feel confident that she would do the best job and she did not let us down.
She helped us pick our dream venue, recommended the best suppliers, was so imaginative and her attention to detail was second to none.  From goody bags for the guests on the bus to flip flops for the ladies in the evening to dance in, she thought of everything! Our day was truly Planned for Perfection.

Elisa & Richard - Wyck Hill House Hotel & Spa
Thank you so much for all your input and especially for all of your help and organisation for helping make Elisa and Richard’s wedding such a success and the perfect day.
The day went really smoothly and we were really pleased with all those who helped make it such a memorable occasion.  There is no doubt that being able to hand over to you helped us relax and make the most of the wedding which just flew by.  Knowing you were organising in the background was such a relief and meant we were able to take in and enjoy the whole event.  All your recommendations were excellent and the team of contacts you have built up are of the highest quality and can be recommended to everyone.  Your happy and ‘nothing is too much of a problem’ approach certainly instilled in me the confidence to hand over to you those days before.  Attention to detail is, as you know due to our military background, one of our expectations and you hit it right at every level – well done!
Elisa and Richard were so happy with everything  and there  is no doubt the day was very special and memorable due to your input and the guests thought it was so well organised and raised the bar for all future weddings…well done!
Well once again a very big thank you – I am forever grateful I bumped into you that day and I  can understand how you won  Best wedding planner– a well-deserved title!
Take care and many many thanks.

Dear Jane,
Tess and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, for all the support we have received from you during the past few months, which eventually culminated in a most outstanding wedding on ‘Friday the thirteenth of July’!!!
Your attention to detail was greatly appreciated by all concerned, particularly by Laura and Scott themselves.  You made their day extra special.
All your recommended suppliers delivered excellent service, indeed, beyond the call of duty!
With regard to Planned for Perfection, we can well and truly understand how you have earned your enviable reputation of ‘National Wedding Planner of the Year’, and long may you so reign.  We, and all those at the wedding last Friday wholeheartedly endorse this and wish you every success for the future.  You won a few potential clients on Friday judging by overheard comments.
Thank you and Fond regards,
Tess and Ray Catterall.
