Meet Louisa

Fun, organised, efficient and extremely passionate.


I would love to share with you a little bit about who I am. Not only do i work with my couples in a professional manner but we also form a true friendship.

Hiring a wedding planner is actually a really big thing!

You are trusting someone who you may have never met before, with one of the most special days in your life!

So here is a little bit about me…..

I have over 15 years’ experience in the hospitality industry. I managed restaurants and bars up in Leeds after graduating from Uni with a degree in Physical education.

Funnily enough i always wanted to be a primary school teacher.

However, as soon as i got the bug for customer service i knew exactly where i wanted to be. Through lots of grit, determination and ridiculously long hours. I became a General Manager of an Award Winning Bar & Restaurant in Leeds. It was only when i met my husband (for the second time- as we used to date at school) that i moved to Colchester to be with him. A couple of jobs later, a wedding and two beautiful sons, i am now the proud owner of Louisa May Weddings.

My Dream Job!

Years of experience, hard work and training has led me to be the wedding planner I am today. I thrive in high pressure situations and have a very hands-on approach to wedding planning.

You will see me getting stuck in with all aspects of your wedding, from planning and coordination, to clearing tables, to polishing glasses….. like i said, i am a very hands on planner.

I want your wedding day to be AMAZING!

I’m a multi-tasker extraordinaire, as a mum of two energetic young boys, business owner and wife to my husband Mark. I rarely sit still for more than 10 minutes! (Except for Sunday evenings where you will find me snuggled under the blanket watching  a classic romantic comedy film).

Who doesn’t love watching a romantic film, sipping wine and indulging in warm apple crumble with vanilla custard……

As you can tell i’m a real foodie!

On a professional note, I will endeavor to always go the extra mile and I am a real people pleaser. I want to always make sure your wedding is even better than your expectations and that you have the special day you deserve.

Working hard behind the scenes to bring together your special day.


Getting to know me

Full of optimism - I'm a glass half full kind of person!

My friends would say that I am a fun, caring person. I always try and see the good in everyone and everything. I am a conscientious person and always endeavour to go that extra mile for my couples on their wedding day to make sure that it’s perfect!

On my days off, you will find me at my local gym. I find that exercise really helps me relax and keeps me focused. I also love time with my friends, catching up over a coffee and putting the world to rights. 

I am a real foodie, family-oriented person and try to get the best out of life. Friendship and loyalty is important to me, along with love, fun and laughter. I feel I bring all of these attributes to how I conduct my wedding planning business. If these traits align with yours, I may well be the wedding planner for you! 

Do get in touch, I’d love to hear from you and help you turn your dream into a reality.

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.
