No words will ever be enough for Louisa. She, in no way of an exaggeration, saved our wedding day. After a supplier let us down last minute, Louisa stepped in without skipping a beat and took control. I'll be forever singing her praises.

Louisa is a God send. Friendly, professional and took so much off our hands. She goes above and beyond what you'd expect. Nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend her to everyone getting married. She really is an asset to any wedding.

Louisa is brilliant at her job. She is very organised, friendly and relaxed under pressure. She was such a massive help on our set-up day and the wedding itself. We really can't recommend her highly enough! She genuinely wanted our day to be perfect for us. And it was!

Louisa was invaluable! Two of our children had already married at venues, so we felt experienced enough to have the next one at home - but without Louisa's help we would have been unprepared and exhausted! Louisa and her team were efficient, friendly and professional.
