Kind Words From Happy Clients
Emma, Walthamstow “Laura was totally brilliant and there’s no doubt that having her on board made our wedding better – both for us and our guests. We approached Devine Bride relatively last minute, when we started to think we had bitten off more than we could chew with our dry hire reception. We couldn’t get access to the venue until midday the day of the wedding which meant we needed someone we could totally trust to bring our vision to life whilst we were busy getting hitched. Laura was so passionate and knowledgeable and took the time to get to know us. She asked all the right questions and produced a very impressive briefing document for all suppliers. Liaising with her always made me feel better about the task in hand…I was a bit of a stressed out bride having started a new job only a couple of months before the wedding. In our final meeting she even gave me advice on finding the right jacket to wear! On the day she was fantastic – the venue looked amazing, she kept everyone running to time, she even arranged a confetti throw for our first dance. I can’t say enough good things about the service Laura offers and thought it was great value for money. Emma & Jonny (Sept 2018)”
Natasha, Limehouse “Our wedding day wouldn’t have been possible without Laura!
Laura was great from the moment we booked her, although we only booked her for on the day coordination, prior to the day itself she met with me and my caterer and then met me again at the venue so that we could run through all of the details and logistics. She was very organised and proactive in the run up to the day – we worked together to produce a briefing document which Laura then emailed to all of our suppliers well in advance so that everyone was on the same page.
We got married at Trinity Buoy Wharf in East London. It’s a dry hire venue which requires a lot of hard work! We had a complicated brief with many suppliers and also a LOT of our own decorative DIY items (including our own bar and mini golf!). Laura liaised with all our suppliers for both set up and take down and dealt with the set-up of all of our DIY details (including all of the table décor, multiple signs and easels, guest book table, mini golf etc. etc!).
I’d like to massively thank Laura and her assistant for all of their hard work on the day. Laura must have worked a 20 hour day and went above and beyond to make sure that the day ran smoothly and how we wanted it to, including doing a lot of the heavy lifting during clear down when a member of the waiting staff didn’t turn up!!
All of our guests have said how great the venue and set up was and particularly how the day was so personal and reflective of us as a couple. We are both so pleased that you managed to bring it all together as I know it was a complicated brief with a lot of suppliers plus all of our DIY elements and my overly detailed nature! I am an absolute control and details freak so I can only imagine what a nightmare Bridezilla I was to work with – so thanks for putting up with me Laura!”
Kat, Bethnal Green “We met Laura at a wedding fair, where she stood out from the confusing and often scary crowd as confident, friendly and knowledgeable, with an impressive list of very happy clients.
As an events manger myself I was very nervous handing over such an important and personal event to a stranger, but well before the day I had total faith that Laura would deliver exactly what I wanted – her briefing documents are a thing of wonder!
Despite us only booking her to coordinate on the day (an option on her ‘pick and mix’ service) she was more than happy to lend advice and recommendations in the lead up (she knows everyone worth knowing in the wedding biz), with quick and reassuring responses.
The day itself, despite last minute logistical changes due to rubbish weather (which Laura sorted with no issue), ran unbelievably smoothly. She and her team made the empty venue look absolutely amazing in the few hours they had before the ceremony, and continued their magic throughout the event – marshalling a mariachi band, moving tables, setting up sound systems, coordinating caterers and much more.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Laura to anyone planning a wedding – she is a Scottish wonder!”
Mel, South London “I could not recommend working with Laura more. From the moment we met her, Laura was super efficient and lovely to work with! We used Laura for on the day coordination but her help and advice in the lead up to the day was invaluable. She created a thorough schedule for the day and introduced herself to all of our suppliers well ahead of time.
When we turned up at our wedding reception after our church service, we were amazed at Laura’s super styling skills. She’d made everything that we had set up the day before look 100% better! Her and her also assistant helped to run the day seamlessly and Laura always made sure that Alex and I were fed and watered!
Wish we could work with her again 😊 Thanks Laura! X”
Sinead, Peckham “It’s hard to explain how extraordinarily wonderful Laura is, and my husband Jack and I could not recommend her highly enough! We haphazardly planned our wedding in just a few months, and soon realised we would need some on-the-day help. Technically this is what we asked Laura to assist with, but in reality she provided so much more than that.
Laura was instrumental in helping us realise our ambitious plans in a difficult, dry hire venue on a tight budget and in a demandingly short timeframe. Even on the first day we met Laura for a chat over breakfast, she gave us loads of brilliant ideas which we incorporated into our day. In the lead up to the wedding, Laura provided fantastic support and produced a detailed plan / timetable for the wedding.
Laura also coordinated the set-up at the venue the day before, and made what could have been a stressful experience run like clockwork. It was such a blessing having someone there who somehow made a few hours of hard work feel like great fun. Laura helped make the jobs we were dreading doing before the wedding (eg ferrying cutlery, plates and chairs to the venue, stringing up fairy lights and organising the caterers and florist) a wonderful experience. She soon felt like one of the family and we really treasure the day as one of the best memories of the wedding run-up.
Laura’s help on the wedding day itself was invaluable. She helped make both Jack and me (and our families and friends) feel so at ease. We didn’t need to think about anything except enjoying ourselves.
We didn’t have any bridesmaids or groomsmen and were really keen that none of our family or the other the guests had any responsibilities other than having fun. So everything fell to Laura, and everything was perfect.
The whole day ran smoothly and precisely to the timetable we had discussed. Even things we had never considered, Laura had thought of and had covered. For example, I’d abandon my bouquet in a corner and then minutes later see it presented beautifully in a vase; it was a weirdly cold day and Laura made sure the guests who were cold had blankets and everything they needed. She also went above and beyond by moving flowers from the reception venue to (and also making the finishing touches to) the “after party” at another location.
Laura was so fundamental to the whole process. It’s so difficult to make a wedding relaxed, but it’s precisely what Laura did for us. Laura made us feel like our months of planning and expenditure was worth it and that the final product was in a safe pair of hands. Everything went smoothly and the day was perfect.
I could go on forever about how wonderful Laura is! We are so grateful for her brilliant work and honestly don’t know how we would have done it without her. The whole process of working with her was a joy. Thank you so much Laura!!! Xxx”
Tom, Islington “Laura is simply amazing. We took her on to help us with a few ideas in the planning stages of our wedding and then as our coordinator for the day itself. Throughout the entire process she was such a fantastic help, answering all our questions, giving us valuable advice about anything we asked for, being so generous with her time – visiting the venue with us, and generally making us feel at ease during what can be a very stressful period. On the day itself, she was an absolute star and went above and beyond to ensure that everything ran like clockwork. We cannot recommend her enough to anyone planning their big day. She really knows her stuff and is a great person to work with. Thank you so much!”
Lauren, Beckenham “Laura was a lifesaver for me during our wedding – we had our reception in our back garden with a yurt, which was always going to be extra stressful than in a hotel/venue. She helped us set up the day and even made a beautiful eucalyptus arch for our yurt entrance the day before. On the day, everything was handled perfectly by Laura – we can’t believe how wonderful Laura and her assistant were on the day. The whole event ran so smoothly, we were left to enjoy our wedding – our families as well, who weren’t having to organise and manage behind-the-scenes. Laura also gave us some brilliant tips and ideas. I’d recommend her entirely for any event!”
Phoebe, Hampstead “Laura is INCREDIBLE. Her advice, service, enthusiasm, ideas, personality and passion are golden, and her flair and skill at organisation is second to none. Laura made our day a complete dream, and she’s the loveliest person to work with. I’d unreservedly recommend her to anyone getting married, or having a big event of any kind, she’s completely fantastic.”
David, Glasgow “Where can we even start in thanking Laura and the team at Devine Bride. Laura kept us calm from engagement until the big day; she was always at the end of an email to answer our questions and kept impressing us with her wedding wisdom and ideas. She made an extremely tight turn around, due to our venue timings, doable and easy and we can honestly say we wouldn’t have been able to have as good a day without her. She sourced our invite designer and went above and beyond with ideas, thoughts, and endless inspiration. Would recommend to any couple – Laura is the wedding saviour you need on your big day.”
Marina, Hackney “Laura supported us as on the day wedding co-ordinator for our recent London wedding. Despite hiring Laura as an ‘on the day co-ordinator’, she went over and above in the months leading up to the wedding, helping us to co-ordinate timing, suppliers and deliveries.
On the day, Laura was exceptional. Our day was split into three venues and Laura managed absolutely everything for us, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. From playing our ceremony music and organising the crucial confetti photo, to making sure we stuck to timings and decorating our evening venue perfectly. Laura is hard-working, super friendly and 100% cares about the couple and success of the day, with lots of personal touches along the way. I absolutely cannot recommend Laura highly enough!”
Izzy, Hackney “Laura was amazing, we took on a dry hire venue and hadn’t quite appreciated how much work was involved, Laura was recommended to us to manage the day, and I soon as I met her, I knew we were in safe hands. She was not only brilliant on the day, she did so much in the running up to, she is worth every penny. Our party really couldn’t have been better, everything ran like clock work and this was definitely down to Laura, an absolute pleasure to work with, I highly recommend her!“
Vicki, North London “Thank you for all your efforts to make our party a truly memorable event. The decor and venue looked fantastic (everyone said so); the food was great and people said it was the best party they’d been to — ever, in some cases! SO it all went swimmingly.”
Kate, Islington “Can’t begin to thank you and the incredible team for everything yesterday. The whole day was like an actual dream. A million times thank you. xox”
Laura, Peckham “Laura is excellent, I can highly recommend Devine Bride. Laura and her team made our day completely stress free and a reality. The venue was ‘raw’ so she had to do everything! It was awesome. Thank you Laura”
Charmaine, Dubai “Francis and I would like to thank you for being instrumental in making our day truly unforgettable. After combing through the internet, I am glad I stumbled across Devine Bride and you were able to deliver to exactly what we needed on the day…..help! You did not disappoint us at all, from our first conversation you instilled a trust and positivity in me which allowed us to completely let go and focus on the other elements of our wedding. The regular contact every other day with some form of an update or reminder kept us on our toes and the day itself was so stress-free and seamless we could just enjoy our day.
The first time we saw the finished product we were just so overwhelmed with happiness – it was the small touches that counted such as bringing out a glass of bubbly to our white taxi or ordering the caterers to bring canapes to us whilst we waited for our guests to be seated. I cannot recommend you highly enough, you truly made my day.”
Peter, Chiswick “Laura has great enthusiasm and organisational skills, and was an invaluable source of assistance for our wedding. She contributes good ideas and adapts to the client’s needs, and is very responsive. If you want someone that is as excited as you are about your wedding, and is eager to help you realise your vision, then I recommend Laura as a calm, practical planner who is easy to deal with, hard-working and, above all, a lovely person.”
Casey, San Francisco “Although I’m a London native, I live in the States–transatlantic wedding planning has never been so easy. Laura was in charge of making my big day run smoothly and she is a fantastic communicator. As a recent bride herself, she just really gets it. She responds quickly and everything is super clear. We got married on May 28th and it was all better than I imagined, my design brief was executed perfectly and the venue looked stunning. All of my guests absolutely raved about how perfect it was. Can I get married again?!?!“
Jenny, Tarbert “Laura was amazing helping me with some recent bridesmaid tasks. Communication was excellent & I loved her brilliant ideas! The perfect mix of creativity and efficiency! I would highly recommend Devine Bride services.”
Andrew, Suffolk “Laura is fantastic! She helped us so much and has great ideas! Even with a short brief that was light on detail she managed to come up with loads of ideas and suggestions. I would definitely recommend her!”
Stuart, Glasgow “Laura was absolutely brilliant! We were trying to make our wedding as stress free as possible and with Laura’s help we had a great, stress free lead up to the big day, as well as on the day itself.
Her ideas were all great, from the unique table plan design to the little extras that we would never have thought of but our guests all loved and raved about to us. Seriously can’t recommend Devine Bride enough! Thank you for everything Laura!!! x”
Emma, East Kilbride “Would HIGHLY recommend Laura’s services! After not knowing what sort of wedding invitations I wanted (and endless hours searching online for something that didn’t exist) Laura was able to create an amazing bespoke design that represented our personalities.
Laura went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with every step of the design in super efficient timescales and kept us well informed of progress! She even gave us some much appreciated venue inspiration from her experiences at the hotel we were getting married at! Devine Bride is friendly, fast and fabulous”
Gerry, Glasgow “Laura is awesome, she made things so easy for us and our wedding was top notch as a result !! Thank you so much!”
Jennifer, Newlands “Laura was absolutely fantastic in helping us with our invites. I wanted something personal but I’m not very creative. Laura took my limited ideas and hit the nail on the head! From the graphics to the wording, she had so many fantastic ideas that I would never have thought of myself. She made the whole process completely stress free and the comments from our guests have been amazing. Can’t recommend Devine Bride enough!”
Karen, Glasgow “Laura is fab and her work is just perfect!! She went above and beyond helping sort our invites and we were so pleased with the results! I would definitely recommend Laura to anyone looking for help on whatever aspect of your wedding! Xx”
Neil, Clarkston “Laura was a great help. Very quick with everything she did. Gave us some great ideas for the day and helped us with things we would never have thought of. A fantastic help and would recommend everyone who has a wedding coming up to give Laura a shout.”
Judy, Bishopbriggs “Outstanding service from our wedding planner, Laura. Can guarantee she will be as excited as you are about your big day and will treat your wedding as if it were her own! Replies quickly to all correspondence and takes her own initiative when required as well as encouraging your own creativity. Wish Laura and her lucky future clients every success!”
Kirsty, Glasgow “Laura is absolutely amazing! She done our wedding stationery and I couldn’t fault her at all. She is more than helpful and really done a fantastic job. Highly recommended.”
OMG you’re amazing! It looks brilliant! You are so on the ball. Absolutely love the [personalised travel] board you made. It really does look so good! Thanks so much for all your help, you’ve been awesome.”
Richard, Peckham “Laura was absolutely brilliant throughout. Her knowledge and support was more than impressive, and her energy and enthusiasm right up there with our own. Laura is at the real deal, a huge talent with design and helped me create a wonderful surprise for my wife – even down to prompting me to finalise when I was distracted by other tasks. Super patient, super talented, and super fun to have around. We will be singing your praises for years to come… and by the way, you are REALLY good at your job”
Joanna, London “Laura Devine was our wedding angel, she basically saved our lives by designing all of our stationery, giving us loads of amazing ideas and making sure we saved loads of cash while doing it.
She helped us with everything from designing signs, order of service & menus etc, sourcing vintage frames for our ‘forest photo booth’, making printing schedules, even sourcing confetti…. she really took the pressure off of us so I can’t recommend her enough.”
Kind Words From Colleagues and Suppliers
Felicity, Felicity Westmacott Dressmaker, Redhill “Laura and I worked on a styled shoot together, along with a great team and I can not reccommend her highly enough. The photographer, Laura and I were the shoot leaders and everyone pulled their weight with Laura using her talents
as a planner to really push things along. Her talent for organisation and skill as a stylist are exceptional. The commitment she showed to the concept and her respect for everyone’s talents meant nothing was left to chance leading to a great shoot day. She also made sure everyone felt valued with gorgeous little thank you cards afterwards, a testament to her thoughtfulness and exceptional people skills!”
Owen, Owen Billcliffe Photography, London “Amazing party & wedding planner, so thorough, cheerful, and on top of it all.”
AnnMarie, Lawson Makeup, London “Having first hand experience of working with Laura of Devine Bride, it was her outstanding professionalism and easy friendly way which struck me initially and is what makes her so accessible, so trustworthy and that she simply delivers time and time again. A true master of organisation and a real creative thinker Devine Bride is who I personally would entrust with my planning; with her flair & unflappability within the unexpected, quality ideas and a black book of professionals to die for, I unreservedly recommend her.”
Pri Kruijen, London Wedding Stationery, London “I’ve worked with Laura on two styled shoots now and she has been a dream to work with. Her organisation and eye for detail before the shoot has meant that the shoot has gone off without a hitch. I’m really looking forward to working with her again and would recommend to her any of my brides. X”
Lucy Boyd, Green & Envy, Bermondsey “I have joyfully worked alongside Laura at both Weddings & Styled Shoots & can’t recommend her supremely organised, cheerful & stylistic approach enough! No amount of snow, wind or clouds on our most recent event together could hinder her professionalism, efficiency & realistic attitude. On top of all this she is just a really lovely person!! I would (& do!) absolutely recommend Laura to my couples and I can’t wait for the next time we work together. *****”
Lucy Barrow, Mix & Twist, Harrogate “Laura at Devine Bride is an absolute dream to work with! So incredibly organised, creative, passionate… also super lovely too! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any of my wedding couples who want someone who can bring their ideas to life in a unique way, whilst taking away the stress of wedding planning, making it a truly magical experience for them.”
Alana Watts, Petal and Wild, Essex “I was lucky to with Laura last year on a styled shoot at beautiful Gaynes Park in Essex. She was incredibly friendly and absolutely passionate about the styling elements of the day. Laura really made the shoot stand out with her fresh, creative ideas and her organisational skills are unrivalled. Highly recommend!”
Victoria Murray, Victoria Murray Photography, Surrey “I had the pleasure of working alongside Laura when she styled the beautiful Gaynes Park for me during a styled Bridal Shoot. It was a big task with a relatively small team and Laura was absolutely amazing from the first email – friendly, helpful, fantastic ideas and and all round professional. I would definitely recommend Laura to my Brides and I would not hesitate in working with her again.”
Joanna Szymkiewicz, Joasis Wedding Photography, London “It was our first working together with Devine Bride team last Saturday and we have been so impressed with the level of organisation and efficiency Laura and Steph showed on the day. I am so happy that our couple decided to get some help with setting up and running everything on the day as they could relax and truly enjoy their wedding without worrying about logistics of turning a room a couple of times for the next part. In effect, the couple could chat and spend time with their family and friends and we had time and chilled atmosphere for the portraits. Laura and Steph were super nice to work with too which does make a lot of difference when you spend with someone 10h or so a day! Will definitely recommend Devine bride to all my future wedding couples!“
Amanda, Amanda Karen Photography, London “I had great fun working with Laura, her passion is infectious and her organisational skills are unrivalled, all topped up with the fact that she is creative and her stationery designs are just lovely!”
Eunice, Unicorn Cakes and Cards, Motherwell “Working with Laura was a really pleasant experience, excellent communication and related to the job at hand. I would not hesitate to recommend Devine Bride services, Laura will ensure your celebration is an experience to remember.”
