A city wedding with a routemaster, a Pimms bike, and lots of greenery, at Hackney Town Hall and Mile End Ecology Pavilion.
Wedding Planning, including decor concept and set up, by Devine Bride.
“This is going to be a long one, so up front I’ll say that Laura is a dream. Dry hire weddings can be stressful so I’m so glad we made the decision to get her on board with our wedding. Having someone so experienced, organised, and just amazingly good at their job, made our day (and the months leading up) so much easier.
When we booked our dry hire venue (Mile End Ecology Pavilion) I knew I was going to need some help. I had visions of running around on the morning of my wedding like a headless chicken, and I was also worried that I had lots of ideas for decoration but needed someone to make sure that it didn’t look like mish mash of Pinterest ideas.
I had a couple of calls with other planners but they didn’t seem to understand what I wanted (one spoke to me about coloured linen for at least 15 minutes). Then I came across Laura and her pick and mix service. It was so flexible and bespoke that I was able to tell her exactly what I thought I needed a hand with. She was warm, friendly and massively helpful from the get go, so I knew I could trust her with my day.
We worked on my wedding on and off for quite a while and I can’t explain how reassuring it was to have her by my side, giving me guidance and steering me in the right direction. I’m a control freak typically, and have organised work events in the past, so I thought I’d struggle with taking advice from someone else, but I trusted her completely from start to finish. I knew I’d made the right choice when she told me what time sunset would be on our day – she is just so organised!
Then when it came to the set up and on the wedding day… well, words just can’t even describe how much for a star she was. She had an impressive box of tricks, she was an oasis of calm, and she got the job done. When I walked into the venue after my ceremony, I was absolutely over the moon with the finished product. People were amazed by the set up and we had so many compliments on how pretty our decor was, and it was all down to her advice and hard work. Then later in the day, Laura even stepped in to help my catering team as they were short staffed, alongside her other official ‘jobs’ such as coordinating suppliers.
I loved having Laura with us on our day. She was such a big part of our wedding and if I had to do it all again (I hopefully won’t 😂!!) she would be the first person I’d call.”
