I had the pleasure of meeting Natalie Hewitt in January 2017, unfortunately in a bid to save money, myself and my now husband hired a novice wedding planner. Both of us having never planned a wedding before, and being the first of all our close friends to marry we didn’t have any experience or knowledge, we didn’t even know the UK alliance of wedding planners existed, or what it meant if a wedding planner was a part of it. We put our full trust into our first planner, and unfortunately, things went from bad to worse over the first year and a half of planning the wedding. When we hired Natalie, we instantly felt different with her. She made us feel relaxed, she gave us clear, concise advice, and set realistic expectations. Not only did she completely re plan our wedding, she also created a budget tracker, helping my husband and I to cut some things out that were not necessary and put money into things that would really have the wow factor. Natalie Hewitt really knows her stuff and is absolutely AMAZING at what she does, her network of suppliers are incredible, all down to earth people that really know their crafts. All in all, we wouldn’t have ever had the wedding we did without Natalie, she made our day run so smoothly, and afterwards even family members were telling us how amazing she was. My first piece of advice for all couples newly engaged and embarking on the wedding planning journey, would be to hire someone like Natalie, actually hire Natalie. She will become you’re true friend, psychiatrist, accountant, stylist, chief hugger, and will most importantly be our friend forever. We love you Nat! Natalie & Jack McCormick xx"
Wow! Natalie, I don't know if I will ever ever ever be able to thank you enough for everything you did to make our wedding day so unbelievably and incredibly amazing and special, it was beyond all our wildest dreams and expectations! You are the hardest worker ever! I would need the space of 100 cards to write all the thank you’s you deserve for creating our absolute dream wedding! I am just so happy we found you. I didn’t think we needed a planner but when we met you I knew instantly that we needed you. You are so wonderful at your job, a true professional and a lovely friend. It’s been such a fun experience planning with you. Erik and I and our family will be forever grateful for all you did to ensure we had a very special wedding. I miss our planning days! Thank you for all you did, you are a dream maker and a fairy Godmother for Brides. So happy to have gained a new friend too, which is without doubt the best wedding planner in the world. Love you so much for everything you've done for us. You are THE NUMBER ONE wedding planner ever ever ever!!
“I was instantly drawn to Natalie, she was genuine. She provide great support for us. We were let down last minute on our wedding cake, Natalie sorted this almost immediately for us. On our actual wedding day the venue made lots of mistakes by not having a stocked bar, not having enough staff and no management on site. But Natalie took this in her stride. She organised the band to serve food, she went to the supermarket to buy drink for the bar and brought her own family and friends to help... I just knew she was for us. Genuinely beautiful person.”
“Natalie was amazing from the first day I met her, putting me at ease to the day when she was irreplaceable. There were various issues I found out about only now, on the day I didn’t know anything. Natalie dealt with it all so well. You never saw Natalie stressing she had everything in hand and kept is very much to time without appearing stressed with 200 guest to keep on time!!
Our big day would not be anywhere near as special as it has turned out to be, if it wasn’t for continuous help and support. You have certainly over stepped a boundary of a great wedding planner and we really appreciate it. For this reason, we now think of you as one of our friends. You have made our dreams come true.
...thank you so much for all your help on Saturday. You were literally a god send and I wish you had been with us all week!! I noticed all the finishing touches you added to the marquee and garden to help it look even more magical and you kept everything moving throughout the day... We had such a magical day and were so happy you were there to help us.
Thank you for being there for us, we’ll never forget what you have done. I’m really happy we found you. You have been great in your support and advice.” “You have certainly succeeded in your business mission to help brides plan beautiful and memorable weddings.
We couldn't have done it without you. You allowed the two of us to be able to just relax and enjoy the day as we intended it to be.
We both want to say again, a massive thank you... the day was perfect and that is massively down to you.
Natalie we couldnt have done this without you. You have been so kind and helpful THANK YOU! - Lisa from Gift of a Wedding
“Natalie!! I want to sit down and write heaps more to you when I get a chance but just need to let you know now how incredibly FANTASTIC you are - it is so difficult to put into words just how much we appreciated all that you did for us. We have had the most magical few days, it has all been a complete dream for us and everything, absolutely everything, was so perfect and so much more than our highest expectations could be. I knew from the moment I first set eyes on your website that you - your role, style, passion for what you do - was what we would need to help us with our big day. But oh. My. Gosh. Did you deliver!!! Our families are so grateful to you, I don't quite know how you managed to calmly fix everything AND create a masterpiece, but you completely did - and more. Knowing you were on the case meant I had no worries about leaving the venue to get married with not enough chairs, no entrance marquee, and plastic covers all over the carpets...I know that this was only the tip of the iceberg of what you managed to do for us. And coming back down that driveway as a married couple to be greeted with champagne serving waiters, classical music and outdoor seating- goosebumps. Thank god we had you. You were our fairy godmother and I know you must have worked so insanely hard to deliver our perfect day. Absolutely flawless. We not only would be honoured for our day to be featured on your website but I truly feel I need to recommend you to the world. To top it all off you even managed to capture the most fantastic shots of the venue pre guest arrival which has made my mum's day. My dad is not one to give praise lightly and he has not stopped singing your praises, along with Mum, Tom and I. Thank you for being our shining star. Now that we know how easy and relaxing a day like that can be we know that we will call you as soon as any future event is on the horizon. THANK YOU SO SO MUCH you angel!!!! Love Kate and Tom"
“As we were having a marquee in the family home, we really wanted someone to help coordinate things on the day to take things away from my Mum and I... Natalie was extremely professional, really looked the part and ensured the day went seamlessly. All of our other suppliers commented on how easy and lovely she was to deal with and she was a pleasure to have around”
Using Natalie was the best piece of wedding advice we received. She was extremely thorough and supportive throughout the planning process; she spent time getting to know us as a couple, our tastes and likes. Her manner and professionalism were extremely welcoming and her creativity and attention to detail meant that everything we had envisaged for our big day was delivered to the letter. She took a lot of the stresses of dealing with difficult suppliers away and made the whole process so simple... When we first saw Natalie’s website, we were very impressed with her style and the professional look and feel that it gave off. She was very prompt when replying to our initial query and when we first met Natalie, we instantly felt a strong connection; she made us feel very important and understood all of our ideas and wants. Although we hadn’t really thought about using a wedding planner, she easily convinced us of all of the benefits and how she could work around our budget to make sure we got value for money. She went out of her way to meet us regularly before we decided to book with her and showed real determination to help us create our perfect day. It was an easy decision.”
“Our venue was a dry hire venue so we hired Natalie to support us through our planning, recommend suppliers and to coordinate our day. She pointed out things we would have otherwise forgotten and gave us great advice throughout the planning process. She understood what we wanted from our day and took the weight off our shoulders at times when we would have otherwise been stuck. Natalie ensured that the venue looked perfect and the day ran with no hitches (at least none we would have known about!). Our friends and family agree that the day ran perfectly and that she was a God send for us… Her professional but friendly manner made her approachable. She works hard and provides a thorough service. She is worth every penny, and more!”
We wanted to tell you how much we appreciated your help with running the wedding day. I genuinely don't know how we would have done it without you. You kept me calm, same and did all the running around to ensure that everything went to plan. We had an absolutely wonderful day.
