Thank you so much for all your help with the celebration yesterday.  It was a lovely day and the sun shone too!

All went according to plan and my parents had a great time.

Everything came together to make a fantastic day, thank you so much!

Amanda Small – Parents’ Diamond Wedding Anniversary – June 2016

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for all your hard work and effort to ensure our wedding ran so smoothly on Saturday.  By the many comments we received from our guests afterwards, they were greatly impressed at how beautiful the hall looked and how well planned and organised the wedding was.  This is in no small way down to you working with the splendid contacts you put us in touch with – Anna, Jules, Myles and Nikki.  We think it truly worked its magic on the day, allowing us to enjoy the day without having anything to worry about and knowing you were on cue to coordinate and manage the day.
We were absolutely stunned when we saw the hall for the first time and it perfectly fitted the brief we gave you from the start when we first met – romantic, intimate with wonderful food.
Thank you also for helping with the ’last minute’ bouncy castle which went down well with the children.
Thank you also for helping Gill to dress on the morning.  We don’t underestimate how much work you put in and also helping to clear up afterwards!

Gill & Chris – 12th September 2015

Debbie did a fantastic job for our wedding.  We had our reception in a marquee, so having her to coordinate all the different elements required for that was amazing!  All of her suggested people such as photographer, DJ, and even wedding dress shop were wonderful, and her presence on the actual day of the wedding was invaluable.  Thank you Debbie

Jo & Jon – 9th August 2014

Debbie thank you so much for all your help and hard work on Sunday. You are fantastic!

Yes thank you Debbie – you made sure everything was perfect!! Happy new year to you too x x

Sarah & Hemal Pandya – 28th December 2014

Thank you for helping to choose this beautiful card whilst we were away on honeymoon and for all your help in advance and on the day of our wedding.  Everything went perfectly and I could not have wished for anything different.

I hope that Wedding Wonders goes from strength to strength and that we shall keep in touch.

With very best wishes from us both and wishing we could do it all over again!

Sarah & Alastair – 5th April 2014

Thank you so much for all your help on the day.  You were wonderful and a real godsend, taking away any unwanted stress on such an important day for both of us.  I’d be very pleased to recommend you!  Thanks so much for everything.

Anna Tracey – 25th January 2014

I think Fiona and I had concerns at the beginning as you seemed so laid back by it all, but we forget you do this all the time. Also we were probably panicking as we were worried we wanted it to be a special night. Wow, you blew us away by keeping calm, listening and having regular meetings with us. I said in a previous email I wouldn’t know how to top this party, I think the only way would be to get a band like Take That, impossible, everything was brilliant. I couldn’t fault anything. Even when I forgot to buy the vodka you took control and dealt with it, no one knew and it all ran smoothly. Your contacts and ideas made it an extra special evening.

We would certainly use you again for any function and look forward to it!

Robin & Fiona McEwen – 14th September 2013

Thank you so much for everything you did for us on the day of our wedding. We don’t know what we would of done without you.

We really enjoyed our wedding day and were able to enjoy each and every single moment because of you.

The rose petal heart & chocolate cake left in the bridal suite were a wonderful touch on a perfect day!

Laura & Matt Bullard – 9th June 2012

We had a very special party to plan late last year, and I needed help! Debbie worked with me to plan the event – we hired an Edwardian cinema for the evening – and it was a big task to keep it a secret. There were lots of details that needed organising, and as I work full time, Debbie’s expertise was priceless.

No detail was missed, from the red carpet and paparazzi to the usherette trays and ice-creams! Debbie was at the venue, co-ordinated everything on the night – and that was invaluable as it meant that I could just arrive as a guest.

Even down to the genius roll of sellotape to make sure that cards and presents didn’t come unattached, Debbie did a brilliant job.

I couldn’t recommend her highly enough – thank you, we are all still talking about it months later!

Louise Walker – 12th November 2011

Thanks so much for everything Debbie. We had a fantastic day and it all ran so smoothly. It’s sad it’s all ended. Wedding Wonders is a fantastic company and we’d love to work with you again

Felicia & Andre – 10th September 2011

I just wanted to send you a short note to say a sincere thank you for everything you did in the build up to my wedding and on the day itself. You really went “above and beyond” and it was so great having you there on the day dealing with everything. People who weren’t at the day have been asking if everything went to plan. My only answer is “I have no idea – I didn’t see any problems as they were all fixed for me”! My day was truly perfect and I am sure you were working hard in the background to make it that way!

If you ever have a bride that wants to chat to a previous bride please feel free to use me as a reference. I would be delighted to provide a testimonial for you.

Do keep in touch. We should meet up for a Pendley cream tea very soon!

Sherrie & Dax Farrer – 20th March 2010 – Pendley Manor, Tring

We are writing to say a massive thank you to you for all your hard work in helping organise the party on the day of Lucy’s Batmitzvah.

From the minute you arrived at the hall with your little touches and attention to fine detail we knew we were in safe hands!

We could not believe that the venue could have been transformed in such a short space of time from how it looked in the morning.

You pulled the whole thing together for us with organisation, decoration and your wonderful announcements in the evening, making it what it should be a true party and a “Simcha with Style”

We would heartily recommend you to anybody in the future. Thank you so much.

Liz, Jeff, Lucy & Ryan Davis – 7th February 2010, Bushey

Just a short note to thank you for all of your help on our wedding day and on the run up to it. We knew you would be fantastic after watching you at work at my sister’s wedding in 2007, but you have proven yourself to be more fabulous than I could have imagined.

Your hard work behind the scenes was immense, and we thank you for it, I know that the day wouldn’t have run so smoothly without you at the helm.

The day our brother announces his intentions, we’ll make sure his bride gives you a call!

Debbie & Stuart Gallagher – 14th November 2009, The Grove, Watford

After the rejoicing of the engagement celebrations, looms the task of organising the wedding. The best thing my daughter and I did at this stage was to phone Debbie at Wedding Wonders. Debbie then met with us at our home, and from that very first meeting, we knew that we had someone special on board. Using all her expertise and contacts, but most of all through her friendly and engaging manner, Debbie broke down what would have been a daunting task and made it all possible.

On the day itself, Debbie seemed to be in several places at once! Beforehand, she said that if there were any hitches on the day, we should not be aware of them, because she would troubleshoot first. This is exactly what she did, as almost inevitably there were a few glitches from those providing the reception. We were not aware of anything untoward, and the whole day seemed perfect.

I think if I were to sum up Debbie, it would be that she always goes the extra mile for her clients, and in fact on the day of our daughter’s wedding, she physically walked 9 miles, as she discretely managed us all. The amount that she did for us for a comparatively modest fee was amazing. As my husband said: Worth every penny! In Debbie, we recruited a wedding planner, but gained a friend. I would recommend her to anyone. (Carolyn Holleyman, Mother of the bride)

Debbie, thank you sooo much for such an incredible day. So much attention to detail! I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the help you have given over the past year. We truly could not have done all this without you. (Laurence Wells, The Groom)

Thank you so much for everything you have done. I could not have done it without you, especially with Laurence in Afghanistan. You have been a huge support and friend. I hope you’ll be there for the Christenings! (Bella, The Bride)

You have been brilliant! We couldn’t have done this without your help. (Charles, Father of The Bride)

Bella & Laurence – 24th October 2009

Dear Debbie, Keith & I would like to thank you very much for all your hard work on Saturday to make Kate and Tim’s day so special.

We were thrilled how the day went and loved every minute of it. Hopefully we will have the chance to go through it again with our other 2 daughters at a later stage.

We did appreciate everything you did. (Nicola & Keith, Parents of The Bride)

We just wanted to say a last big THANK YOU for all your hard work and effort in making our day such a special, memorable one! We had the most amazing time and the day flowed without a hitch. Thank you so much. (Kate & Tim, The Bride & Groom)

Kate & Tim – 25th July 2009

Debbie is a Star!Thanks to Debbie and Wedding Wonders, our Wedding was wonderful and everyone commented on how well the whole day went.. little did they know that there were several last minute issues’ that Debbie sorted quickly and professionally, including sourcing a red carpet one hour before the ceremony! Without Debbie, I think I would have had a nervous breakdown.. she really did save my sanity- especially when I heard that our Wedding Venue had gone into administration.. three weeks before the big day! Debbie was brilliant talking to all concerned and getting reassurances that the day would still run smoothly. Thank you again Debbie for all your hard work from helping me choose my dress, to tying the ribbons round the napkins! Debbie really did go over and above all expectations, and was always willing to go that extra bit further, to make everything extra special. You can tell that Debbie really does love what she does, and it’s not ‘just a job’ – she makes you feel like one in a million.

Jasmine & David – 13th June 2009

One in a million!There is no way our wedding would have been the success it was without Debbie, she really did make our dreams come true! She was invaluable on the day, and during the lead-up to the wedding. We had no stress at all knowing Debbie had everything under control. Debbie sourced the majority of our suppliers and coordinated them all on our special day, which allowed for us, and our close friends and family to just completely relax and enjoy the day. Debbie’s attention detail was amazing, from the butterflies around the venue to the petals on the tables, even the high chairs had little chair covers, Debbie had thought of everything. She was available to help and advise anytime before the wedding and made our wedding day run smoother than we could ever imagine. All of our guests have commented on how wonderful she was and how she played such a big part in the day being a huge success. A true friend any bride would be grateful for, Debbie really listened to everything we said and no job was too big! Thanks Wedding Wonders!

Lisa & Antony – 28th May 2009

Thank you for everything you did for our wedding. It was a great relief to know that someone knew what was going on at all times!We had the perfect day on the wedding day itself. We were so lucky with the weather, the chapel and Notley Abbey looked amazing. It all ran very smoothly which no doubt was in no small part down to you, so thanks again.

Rebecca & Iain – 6th December 2008

Words cannot express our gratitude for all you did for us up to and on our big day. The caterers, cake stand, manic rantings from me, the bridesmaid’s dresses, our lovely first photo on the day! Without you the day would not have gone so perfectly smoothly. You really were our fairy godmother – you are indeed a wonder of all weddings. We had a perfect day and a fabulous honeymoon.

Debbie & John – 4th October 2008

Mel and Dave – Thank you so much for all your input and work for Anna & Tom’s wedding. You were so calm and organised and helpful, we would have been lost without you. A number of guests commented on how great you were on Saturday doing a hundred little jobs for us. Anna and I much appreciated all your help.Anna and Tom – Thank you so much for all the hard work and organising that you put into our wedding. We had the most spectacular day, everything was perfect and we will remember it always. Thank you so much for all your support.

Anna & Tom – 42nd August 2008

How can we thank you enough for your fantastic job at our wedding – you were TERRIFIC! The detail you took care of effortlessly and the attention to detail and thoughtfulness and love you put into it all was fantastic. Thank you for making our day so completely memorable.

Sam & Andy – 5th July 2008

Just a quick email to say thanks for Sam’s wedding, all my family were so impressed and said you were worth your weight in gold. They got back from Menorca on Saturday and came over on Sunday so we put all the photos on to the TV and looked through them all. There are some really good ones and they are both really happy.Huge compliments pouring in from all sides about what a great day it was – we were very lucky to have you.

Sarah & Fran – 28th June 2008

Thank you so much for everything you did to make Emma and Bryan’s wedding day such a resounding success. Everyone had a fabulous time and I know we could not have achieved this without your help. Also a huge thank you to Matt he was such a star! At everyone’s beck and call.Do keep in touch, I know we all feel we have new friends.

Emma & Brian – 7th June 2008

To know we didn’t have to chase up suppliers before the day was very relaxing and it was great to know that you were on top of things on the day.

We hate to think what we would have done if we’d had to deal with the photographer putting his foot through the drapes and the cake defrosting too quickly!

The nibbles you provided were ideal and went down very well with the bridal party.

Helen & Tony – 16th November 2007

Thank you so much for all your help on my wedding day. You were amazing you really took the stress away from me and my Family. I have already recommended you to everyone I know who is getting married.I only wish I had called you last year so you could have helped me plan the whole wedding!!!!

Carmelina & Paolo – - 27th April 2008

What an absolute gem! I would recommend Debbie to anyone. She was by far the biggest help to me both leading up to the wedding and on the day.

I had no clue what I was meant to be doing in terms of planning my wedding. Debbie not only gave me all the advice I needed, but was there for me every step of the way when I started to get stressed.

On my wedding day she was a super help and knowing she was there was a big reassurance to me.

Mel & Trev – 15th September 2007

Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us during the preparations for our wedding and on the day.

Tracy & Darren – 8th September 2007

Thank you so much for all of your help before and during my wedding. You were absolutely invaluable and I couldn’t have done it without you, especially the way you sorted out the car for me. The photo that you took for us was a lovely touch and something we will cherish. Thank you again for everything.

Zoe & Ray – 1st September 2007

We just wanted to write and thank you for your help in organising our recent wedding. We wanted an intimate ceremony without too much fuss and you helped us to achieve just that. The day was a complete success and we couldn’t have managed without your input. We have no hesitation in recommending Wedding Wonders and wish you every success.Thank you for all your help and support.

Pete & Robbie – 24th June 2007

I just wanted to take a little time to thank you for all the work you undertook in connection with the planning of Libby and Neil’s recent wedding.

I realise that you didn’t have the luxury of a long lead in to the event, having asked you to become involved early March for a July wedding. However, the help and advice which you afforded to Libby (and anyone else who needed it) was second to none. I don’t think any of us realised the detail went into the planning of a wedding and you more than covered every aspect, and always with a smile. It was also an advantage to us that you knew personally, having worked with them, a number of the suppliers and were able to go direct to them on our behalf, and consequently we knew that they came with your endorsement.

Having you there on the day was terrific and I realise that you also stayed throughout the evening Reception, and were always accessible if we had a query or need.

Thank you again for making Libby and Neil’s wedding such a well organised, enjoyable, and fun day.

Libby & Neil – 14th July 2007

I cannot put into words how much Debbie helped me with the planning, organising and smooth running of our wedding day. All I do know is that I couldn”t have coped without her. For the money you spend on this service you save 4x it in being able to sit back relax and enjoy the day with family and friends…just how it should be!

Hayley & Chris – 7th July 2007

Phil and I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your hard work and help on our wedding day – you were absolutely fantastic and a godsend to have around. You helped everyone stay calm, and from what I’ve heard, sorted out loads of problems on the day that we weren’t even aware of. Big thanks particularly for sorting out the Pimms, that could have been quite disastrous!Thank you again, you were brilliant on our day and in the run up, and we couldn’t have done it without you!

Cass & Phil – 30th June 2007

Debbie played a huge part in making our wedding a complete success. I had several meetings with Debbie before the wedding and I knew from the moment I met her that we were on the same wavelength. She was incredibly helpful, gave me some great ideas and nothing was too much trouble. On the day she made all the organisation seem effortless, even though I know she was working incredibly hard behind the scenes. I would not hesitate to recommend Wedding Wonders to anyone who is planning a wedding. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without her.

Jo & Marc – 27th May 2007

How can I measure HOW MUCH of a difference Debbie made to both our Wedding Day and the planning? She is your best friend, your sensible non wedding self, your Mum and so many other people all rolled into one AMAZING bundle.

Supportive, honest, caring, SUPER ORGANISED, open and above all a TOTAL WONDER are only a few words to describe her. Nothing ever seemed like too much trouble, everything was set out meticulously and she works with you in a way that suits you and your wedding not what she thinks you should have.

I seriously do not know what we would have done without her, I thought I was organised and then I met Debbie! Anyone who says that a Wedding Planner is a waste of money and not needed, has obviously never been married or planned anything on this type of scale…

On the day things couldn’t have gone smoother for us and this was ENTIRELY down to Debbie, none of us had to panic, worry or plan anything and were able to focus on relaxing and enjoying our very special Day.

Emma & Jason – 5th May 2007

Thanks for saving the day and helping me remain as calm and as collected as possible! I don’t think any words can really explain how grateful I am!

Catherine & Iain Thompson – 7th April 2007

Adrian and I wanted to send you a quick note just to say how grateful we were for everything you did leading up to and on the day of our wedding blessing – it really was a great deal off my mind knowing that you were there and being able to trust implicitly that everything would be done to the exact detail.

You really helped make our day extra special – many thanks indeed!

I felt very safe knowing that all the jobs I needed doing would be done and it was great that nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble. You really are worth your weight in gold!!

Julie & Adrian Gray – 31st March 2007

Following our big day I wanted to drop you a line and thank you so much for all your hard work in making it such a fabulous day. Having your support and guidance eased every step of the preparations. You were always open to our ideas and listening to what we wanted to achieve (and on a budget!) and could be relied upon to follow through with your own suggestions which were spot on!In the build up to the day, when I was able to keep on with normal life and running my business, people often said aren’t you getting married next week; is everything arranged? Thanks to Wedding Wonders I felt completely confident in saying Yes, everything is organized; it’ll be a great day! and indeed, it was!

Jacqui & Barry Butler – 18th February 2007 – Pendley Manor, Tring

I just want to say a HUGE HUGE thank you for all of your help and support on our wedding day. You were absolutely fantastic! A godsend!

The day would not have been anywhere near as smooth-running without you being there.

Most of all, I owe you a huge thank you for going to collect my Dad’s waistcoat! Only my dad couldn’t manage to do that!! I couldn’t believe it when I heard. And I stayed calm and accepted that my dad would not have a waistcoat for the day. Then I found out you’d gone and collected it for him. So thank you so much.

Both parents were a little sceptical before the wedding about whether we needed an otd coordinator and since the wedding BOTH parents have said how wonderful you were and how hiring you was money well spent.

Thank you also for getting Fanhams into gear when they had forgotten to put out half of our things!! It would have been horrible to see that lots of things weren’t there. It was thanks to you that that didn’t happen.

And finally thank you for everything else you did, that we didn’t see!

I will be recommending you to new brides for years and years to come!

Sarah and Dave Sutterby – 9th December 2006 – Fanhams Hall, Herts

It was such a relief to have you there and to know that you would deal with anything that came up and that you would deal with it well. You really are worth your weight in gold and you should be very proud of the service that you provide and they way that you provide it.

Paula and Mark Axten – 25th November 2006 – Northcote House, Ascot

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for your invaluable help with our wedding preparations. Your professional yet very friendly and approachable manner were a great combination. It was great knowing that we would never have to chase you about anything as you always kept to your (and our) deadlines. Although I wasn’t 100% sure about booking your services for the actual wedding day (Philip persuaded me!), I know now how wrong I would have been! Having you around meant neither of us had to worry about anything; we could just concentrate on enjoying our special day.

Mary and Philip Lockett – 22nd October 2006 – Greek Orthodox Church, Hatfield

 

You were fantastic and I don’t know what we would have done without you! I’d also add that having over 100 guests in Bedouin style Marquees at our home and co-ordinating so many ‘suppliers’ there was no way we could have done it without you.When you think of all the extremes that you coped with the hottest July on record, with a freak storm (causing our beautiful marquees to leak!), then the drinks cooler over heating and I’m sure that wasn’t all both Phil & I were oblivious to behind the scenes organisation our day was perfect!

Debs & Phil – 22nd July 2006 – their garden, Weston Turville

Thank you so much for all your help and support on our wedding day. You managed to do a fantastic job of keeping my parents, bridesmaids and I calm during the morning and run-up, and also kept all the suppliers and numerous people in check and on track. We couldn’t have done the day without you, and your attention to detail was superb. The framed photo at the end of the evening was also a really lovely touch. Thank you for keeping me sane in the days and weeks in the run-up!

Nina & Nicholas Fox – 5th July 2006 – Beaconsfield

Suha and I would like to give you our biggest thanks for making our day so very special. Your extensive help and support during the past year, and especially on the day made sure that our Wedding was as special as we dreamt it would be.Your attention to detail and your advice ensured the whole day past without even the slightest problem.

Steven & Suhu Grant – 2nd June 2006

We would like to say a huge thank you for all your hard work and help regarding the co-ordination of our wedding at Whipsnade Wild Animal Park.

The day was a complete success although I know you had to iron out some hiccups from other supplier on the day and for that we are so grateful. We were so pleased with how the day ran, it really was the wedding day of our dreams and that was largely down to you.

All my guests commented on how hard you worked and how very friendly you were to them all. My parents especially really appreciated your help in ensuring everything and everyone were in the right place at the right time and looking after all the props for the day, ensuring they were safe as we would have hated to have misplaced any of our treasured memories. They couldn’t believe it when they went to start putting all the presents etc in the car for transportation home and realised that you had already done it!

My husband and I were truly able to completely enjoy our special day knowing that you were behind the scenes overseeing everything and that you were there for your very valuable support. You were always running one step ahead of events to ensure the smooth running of the day but you never imposed on our special event. You listened to all our plans and dreams of how our day would be and made sure they all came true on the day.

Your help and support in the build-up to the wedding day was invaluable. It was such a relief having someone to talk to about our ideas and to reassure us about our worries. Having you to fight the battles with the venue was brilliant and we are so pleased you were able to find us a videographer at such late notice.

Out of all the suppliers we booked for our wedding day, we are so relieved we booked you. You truly are worth your weight in gold.

Sian & Brian Lambert – 25th June 2005

Debbie, I’m just off on my honeymoon, and I’ll try to ring you from the airport – but if I don’t catch you – thank you so much for all your help on the wedding day – it wouldn’t have worked out without you!I’m sorry you had to do all the crappy jobs – it’s all those little things that made the day so special.

Amanda & Mark – 4th June 2005 – St Paul’s Cathedral

Dan & I would like to say thank you very much for all your help with the planning and organising of out wedding. Your help certainly took some stress off us. Your help on the big day was much appreciated. You took the strain of some duties away from us and we were able to relax and enjoy the day knowing you were there to sort out any problems. I would certainly recommend you to future brides to be.

Emma & Dan Smith – 28th May 2005
