/ Kind Words
It’s such a privilege to create a wedding day that is wonderful, memorable and stress-free for my clients, and when they take the time to write to me, it really is quite special. Here are a selection of kind words from my clients:
My daughter was getting married, and as I did not have enough time to organise the wedding myself, I called upon Natalie Lovett of Love to Plan to organise the wedding for us.
From the initial meeting with Natalie, we liked her and we had great confidence in her ability to make our day one to remember. Our instinct provided to be a good one.
The ceremony and reception at Highclere Castle was organised to perfection. It went according to plan, the timing and every detail was supervised by Natalie throughout and it allowed me to enjoy the ceremony and reception without a worry.
The reception and dinner were to be held at our home. Natalie introduced us to the lady who would design and print the invitations, menu and place cards, the caterers, the patissier who would be making the wedding cake, the florist who would do the flowers for the ceremony at Highclere Castle and in the Marquee for our reception. The persons she recommended were extremely efficient in their fields and were a reflection of what she herself expected – Absolutely first class in every way.
Natalie is a perfectionist and every meeting we had with her proved to be a good experience. I trusted her completely and my daughter and fiancé were more than happy to be guided by her, even to her suggestion of a DJ company for the evening dancing.
May I finish by saying that Natalie stayed with us throughout the eventual day, and supervised every detail from early morning until midnight. Even returning the next day to make sure everything was completely satisfactory.
My husband and I give the highest recommendation possible to Natalie Lovett of Love to Plan, and would add that anyone fortunate enough to use her services can be assured of an extremely successful function.
Richard & Emma
Deciding to hold our ceremony and reception for 140 guests in our garden at home seemed such a great idea and we were initially intending to organise it ourselves.
What seemed like a great idea in March felt like a nightmare by April with so much to do. Fortunately common sense got the better of us and we contacted Natalie.
Right from our first meeting we were reassured and a huge sense of relief swept over us as we realised we had passed all the stress over to someone else. Natalie was brilliant, unbelievably organised with updates via telephone and e-mail on a regular basis and guidance and input throughout.
Her knowledge of all things wedding related, including the working relationship she has with so many suppliers and contacts was invaluable and I lost count of the comments I had from guests about the attention to detail.
She negotiated on our behalf with caterers and suppliers alike and secured discounts that we would have been unlikely to attain ourselves – negating the majority of her cost. Natalie really understood the relaxed festival atmosphere we wanted to create and pulled it off with ease.
Ours was not an easy day to co-ordinate, 4 linked giant Tepees, one as a Moroccan themed bar; separate catering tent; 2 bars; bonfires; generators, as well as a band, lantern launch and even a campsite and loos for guests staying the weekend – everything ran like clockwork and appeared effortless to anyone that came but both Emma and I know how hard Natalie worked to achieve that.
We couldn’t recommend her highly enough and are sure that anyone that uses her service will have a fantastic day.
Sarah & Clive
Natalie is absolutely fantastic.
Relaxed, friendly and got on brilliantly with all our suppliers. She took time to understand exactly what we were expecting from our day.
After having a tough start to the wedding, with issues with the venue, Natalie took all the stress and worry away and let us enjoy the lead up to our wedding.
Natalie has a personality that will allow her to get on with anyone, and her ability to read minds is fantastic, as the decoration and organisation was EXACTLY what we wanted.
After getting to know Natalie over 2 years I can safely say that not only did I find the BEST wedding planner, I have also found a friend.
The wedding was a huge success, and I cannot stress how fantastic it was to have you taking care of the venue decoration on the day for us. The peace of mind that you gave me, on a very busy, important day, was priceless as it meant that the night before, I could relax and start to enjoy the run-up to the most important day of my life!
The venue looked beautiful – you were so accommodating and helpful in the run-up to the big day, attending meetings with us at the venue and listening to our ideas. Your help and advice was invaluable, a very flexible, professional service that I would highly recommend.
I have, and will continue to recommend your services to anyone that gets engaged as I feel that your business should be shouted from the roof tops.
Sam & Matt
We highly recommend the fantastic service that Love to Plan offered us in the organising of our wedding day. From the outset, we knew that Natalie and the Love to Plan team would prove invaluable in the big day, and we were never once proven wrong.
Natalie provided us with an excellent level of communication, and showed great excitement and understanding of the ideas (sometimes off the wall) that we had to put forward for our big day, and never once did we feel that we were causing any difficulty with the things we requested from her.
In the run-up to the wedding, the support and empathy that was shown was second to none, and made the entire, sometimes stressful process seem smoother and more in control. Since the wedding I have said that I wish I had “A Natalie” for every aspect of my life, as her presence, helpful pointers and reassurance that all would be wonderful, allowed me to concentrate on the finer details of the planning and enjoy the process as a whole.
On the day itself, Love to Plan offered an almost invisible yet comforting presence, we felt safe in the knowledge that should anything arise, it would be resolved swiftly and with minimal fuss.
We thank all of the team at Love to Plan for allowing us to have the day of our dreams, it will never be forgotten!
Laura & James
Natalie was amazing from our initial meeting through to the week after our wedding.
From our initial meeting we knew Natalie would make our big day extra special and she could not do enough to support and help us through the planning process. If it wasn’t for Natalie we would not have had the perfect day we did as she arranged everything to precision timing which made the day run smoothly without any glitches or stresses to the wedding party.
No matter how big or little the job was she ensured it was organised to her exceptionally high standards.
Natalie made sure that every aspect of the wedding came to fruition throughout the planning process and she ensured that every minor detail was covered.
We have and will continue to recommend Love to Plan as she will guarantee an amazing day.
Lorna & Dave
Natalie is absolutely amazing! She knows the best people in the business and knows exactly how to make sure that you have a perfect day. Natalie is so friendly and professional and was so much help before, during and after our big day.
Natalie is an outstanding wedding planner and a credit to the industry.
Helen & Atalla
We just wanted to send a big thank you for all you did before, and on the wedding day.
Without you we could not have had such a wonderfully relaxed, happy and organised day. You certainly gave us the ‘WOW factor’ we wanted!
Everyone has made such wonderful comments and said it had been the best wedding they’ve ever been to!!
All our best wishes and love.
Scott & Suzie
Having decided to organise a wedding in 3 months we were really excited about working with Natalie and gaining from her experience. We were not disappointed at all – she was excellent.
She organised all our appointments so all we had to do was attend and make decisions. She kept us on track, kept us focused on what was important and made sure everything was done on time. On top of all this she even recommended cost savings so we were able to stick within our budget.
We also had the fortune of having Natalie present on our big day and it was such a blessing as she made sure all the preparations were done and that everyone was where they should be at any given time.
We can safely say that without Natalie our wedding would not have been as successful as it was, or if it had been, it would certainly have taken its toll on us.
We would strongly recommend not passing up on Natalie's expertise and professionalism as it's critical to any wedding preparation.
Thank you Natalie for all your support!
Alexander & Anne
Thank you for the update, and we have some (fingers crossed) good news! We went to Orchardleigh House yesterday and met Samantha, who is an outstanding host, and showed us around the entire property yesterday. We were even able to see the Orangery, albeit under construction, but it still provided a very good idea of what it will be like finished.
We loved the property, the flexibility, and I think pretty much everything about the offering, and plan to put in a formal proposal by this weekend.
We wanted to say a big THANK YOU for finding Orchardleigh and pushing us to give it a chance. Also for being so thorough in your search and detailed when liaising with Samantha as we firmly believe this is why she was so familiar with us when we met her. This really made the day even more exciting, rewarding and special for us.
So, again, thank you for your help, we’ll keep you updated on our progress with Orchardleigh. Have a great day and we’ll be in touch soon.
