I'm so lucky to have worked with some amazing couples and families for their weddings and events, even more so that they have spent the time to write to me after a lovely testimonial...
I have shared a few below with their permission for you

Lauren was a pleasure to work with and did an excellent job organizing and styling our wedding. Our wedding was due to take place in April but, because of Covid, was moved to October, to a different venue and with a much smaller guest list. Lauren seamlessly rearranged our vendors for the new date and created a gorgeously styled table and room for the wedding breakfast. On the day, she made sure everything ran like clockwork and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Thank you, Lauren!

We booked Lauren a few years ago when we first started planning our wedding. From start to finish, Lauren was amazing to work with, and we would recommend her to anyone.
She brought ideas and contacts to the process of planning our wedding, and thought of everything that we never would have! She was organised, patient and creative, and played a large part in ensuring that our special day all went according to plan. We always felt like it was easy to contact Lauren, and she was prompt with replying whenever we were stressing. Towards the end of the planning process she took over conversations with all suppliers and the venue, which made the run up to the wedding much more exciting and a calmer experience than we expected it to be.
On the day she turned up early to help set up and wasn't even phased when some mistakes (that weren’t her fault) set us back by an hour, and changes meant that we had to add and take away some guests from tables.
Lauren styled the venue beautifully, I was absolutely blown away with how beautiful it looked, she took my ideas and make them reality, taking a drab and tired looking building and transforming it into a beautiful wedding, it was truly Instagram/Pinterest worthy!
The wedding looked beautiful overall and tan seamlessly, and we've had so many compliments about how the venue and tables ended up looking, in large part to Lauren. Thank you for everything!
L&T - 1-2-1 Before Wedding
My wedding is in 7 months and I found myself procrastinating with the planning and the booking of vendors. I asked Lauren (-who I’ve hired as a day coordinator) for a “kick in the butt” aka 1-2-1 session. I got all the help that I need and more. It also gave me so much inspiration and I’m back on a roll now with the planning.
Lauren is so sweet and you really feel that she got your back, which is what every bride needs.

What would we have done without Lauren?!! From the moment we first met with Lauren, her professionalism and knowledge shone through. Our wedding was planned at a time when we were also moving house and had some pretty important work events going on. Lauren’s calm and reassuring qualities really helped us in the lead up to our wedding and she co-ordinated all suppliers. She also took on our vision of how we wanted the day to look and worked with us to give us exactly what we wanted! The styling was exactly how we had pictured!
On the day of our wedding, she took control and I have no doubt that the day would not have been as smooth if she had not been there! Many of of guests commented that it was such a well run day and that is down to Lauren. If you’re not sure about booking, do it!!! Lauren will make the whole wedding planning experience and the day much less stressful for you! Thank you so much Lauren!!

Organizing a wedding during a world wide pandemic is not easy but Lauren was fantastic from start to finish! Her calm and professional approach to every hurdle that was thrown at her ensured my daughter's wedding was amazing! 5 days before the wedding when the 'Rule of 6' was brought in by the government the wedding was almost cancelled as the reception was due to be held at my home. Lauren took charge, a new venue was found, suppliers contacted and re-directed and her original plan for decorations were thrown up in the air. However, her 'don't panic, it's all in hand' mantra stopped me panicking and it was absolutely beautiful even though she didn't actually see the venue until the day of the wedding! Lauren took control of the day so I didn't have to think of anything and I'm sure it would not have gone that way had she not been in charge. I would thoroughly recommend Lauren to anyone planning an event and we will certainly be using her again when full wedding receptions can be held once more :)
C&T - Berwick Lodge
We worked with the brilliant Lauren for our wedding in July this year. She brought together all of our chaotic ideas and made an amazing wedding out of them! We approached Lauren last year when our planned DIY wedding was turning out to be more difficult that expected - partly due to the roof not being ready at our planned venue! Lauren swept in, contacted just about every venue in the wider Bristol area and, after days on the phone and email, found a fantastic back-up that was available on our preferred date. This output-focused dedication sums up Lauren perfectly. We wanted to bring a lot our ourselves into our wedding, trying to avoid buying new things to keep financial and environmental costs down. Lauren always asked the right questions to help focus our decisions and find the right people to work with (from marquees to florists). She also took a lot of pre-wedding pressure away by coordinating suppliers and making sure everyone was where they needed to be. The day was run so smoothly for us so that we could just enjoy being together and with our friends ad family. Can't recommend Lauren enough! She'll figure out what you want and make it happen.

We loved working with Lauren - she is kind, creative and enthusiastic. All the things you want in a wedding planner! What I particularly liked was how great she was at working with our different styles and attitudes towards wedding planning..#groomzilla in our midsts! She was fab on the day - calm cool and collected. She also has helpful ideas on how to make your wedding more special. Thanks again for everything 💕

Where do i begin? I could literally scream about how amazing Lauren was start to finish. when my husband and I started planning our wedding, we knew that it wasn't going to be easy but wanted it to be perfect. Lauren helped make that a reality. from the late night texts, the early morning whatsapps, the rushed lunch break phonecalls... she had it all covered and answered all of my bizarre questions. When a couple of suppliers were being pains, she was chasing them and constantly put my mind at ease. she had everything planned out and kept us updated every step of the way. The day before, she was there all day making sure everything was where it needed to be and in preparation for the big day and ON THE DAY we didn't have to think about a single thing, other than just enjoying being husband and wife with our friends and family and got to the end of the day saying 'BLOODY NORA, THAT WENT PERFECTLY!' I cannot thank Lauren enough for everything she did for us and for helping to make our wedding day as perfect as it was
Mrs Hole - Mother of the Bride
My daughter got married on August 31st. From the moment my daughter booked Lauren she was on hand to answer any questions we had. 6 weeks before the wedding she completely took over the final arrangements with all the suppliers & always kept us in the loop. Lauren then came to the venue the day before the wedding & spent the whole day with us setting up my daughters very bespoke festival wedding! The final icing on the cake was Lauren on the day making sure all the suppliers had turned up & knew what they were doing & ironing out any last minute problems, meaning my daughter & our family could just relax & enjoy the day. Really really can't thank you enough for everything Lauren & for the behind the scene pics!

Lauren was just amazing! About a year before our wedding, I was starting to get stressed with the huge amount of work involved in our big white wedding. Our venue was incredible but complicated with the scale and having the ceremony, reception and a boat ride all in different places. I had no wedding or event planning experience so everything was quite overwhelming. After a call with Lauren, my husband and I realised we needed her! Although we asked Lauren to help us predominately with co ordinating the weekend, Lauren was always there when I had general questions or giving advice when a few things were miscommunicated with other suppliers. She was an amazing support to the run up of the weekend. Especially when things started to get crazy in the last few months. She made sure all the suppliers were in the right place and the right time and also helped to make sure we had everything we needed and hadn't forgotten anything- especially important on a grass site. Lauren was always on it, quick to reply, organised, great on the details, friendly and made sure I didn't have to worry at all on the day. Knowing she was on hand to see my vision through and had my back was amazing. Took so much pressure off. The wedding went amazing and importantly I could relax and enjoy! I couldn't recommend Lauren enough!
