Dorothy & Dan came to us a few month before their wedding as they recognised they needed support on their day. They wanted help with the set up, management of suppliers, someone to run the day....and pack away at the end of the night!
The venue was a new one to us, a newly built hall literally adjoined to the church. Dorothy & Dan wanted to combine elements of their cultures and upbringing so mixed Filipino and British traditions which was beautiful to see. They worked hard at transforming the space, making all the decor, including individual table centres all with a specific meaning. Every guest was thought of and the guest experience was truly special. Such a beautiful occasion to be part of and such a joy to meet a wonderful congregation of people!
Thank you for making our wedding flow smoothly. You are the best!
You did a fantastic job on the day, making sure everything ran as smoothly as possible. It was so good to have you there troubleshooting where needed and keeping everything on track. It was an amazing day which was made so much easier by your presence. Thank you x MOG
Can we have some love for this incredible wedding!!! Sean & Hannah "finally" tied the knot! After 20 years together they finally had the day they dreamed of! Every wedding is special to me but when you are asked to coordinate a wedding of a couple in the business it's an added level of special, add in that they have chosen the best if the best suppliers, and a large proportion of the guests are the other best of the best suppliers!! No pressure!
Hannah won't mind me saying that Sean took the reigns and planned most of the day so it was glorious to see the look on Hannah's face at every surprise moment and detail! These two literally never stopped smiling! They booked my enhanced package so I took over the admin a few weeks before the big day, supported with the set up the day before and then provided our start until finish service on the day itself. What a day, full of laughs, memories and amazing moments! Can we do it all again please!??
Wow! Nicola is an absolute diamond! From offering advice at the initial meeting on how to enhance our day, calming me down when I had a wobble and questioned all my choices, through to the final meeting where she took charge of all the little details that we hadn't even considered, she was so very helpful. On the day itself, she made sure that all our suppliers knew the timings, ensured that our tables were dressed to perfection, was on hand when we needed something, and even packed down and loaded our van at the end of the night, presenting me with the key as we were on our way out. Honestly, taking on BTSE was easily the best decision that we could have made. Thank you, Nicola, for everything that you did.
When an interior designer marries a graphic designer! Lucinda & Will, what a stunning day to be part of! So many personal touches, unique ideas and so much style!!!! It was a pleasure to provide our on the morning set up service for such a wonderful day!
Lucinda & Will designed many elements of their day from the amazing stationery (I have never been so obsessed with paper before! You need to feel it to believe it!! Lol!) to the stunning table plan with individual notes for each guest. We loved the pink tones against the rich greens and gold, the textures and the contrasts.
We received a beautiful set of iced biscuits as a thank you.
Thank you for all your advice and support. Having you as part of our wedding definitely helped me relax! Your positive vibe and lovely nature always shone through our calls. Thanks again xxx
When your colour scheme matches the unseasonal weather! I think Claire channelled the sunshine with her decor plans and what a beautiful wedding Saturday was!
Claire asked us to provide our morning set up service as she wanted to take the pressure off of her wedding party and ensure they enjoyed the day. We took Claire & Dave's decorative items and prepped for the ceremony, stayed for the room turn around and then returned back for the breakdown. What a pleasure it was to be able to help!
We received a Little Jar of Big Thanks and a pen to say thank you.
Thank you so much for all your help on Saturday, it went perfectly. Such a relief you were there and I knew you had everything covered. And thanks for packing our things up so well, it was much easier to get things back home. Thanks again xxx
This couple were recommended to me via a fellow supplier and I am so pleased they were! I'm sure that Mel won't mind me saying (in fact I know she won't as we had a conversation about it!) that Steve was the lead planner in their relationship and what an amazing job he did (helped by Mel of course!)!!! Steve put his heart and soul into arranging a day that his bride and guests would remember forever and his effort was heart warming.
This gorgeous couple put their DIY skills to good use and made so many of the decorative items for the day, helped by family and friends (special mention goes to the amazing sweet treats for pudding!!!) and it looked stunning. The colour palette of dark green and ivory worked perfectly with the setting.
Just want to say thank you for everything you did!
Lauren & Aaron were recommended to us by a number of our previous couples, 3 of which were there on the day!
Their wedding was such a pleasure to be part of with so much love!!! We provided our all day management service for this gorgeous couple, and they planned a stunner, from the outdoor ceremony, to the cake Lauren's mum made, with fantastic music at every stage and a ton of personalised touches, all topped off by stunning decor and flowers!
Thank you so so much, you were insane yesterday, absolutely incredible.. You were so amazing and we could not have done yesterday without you!! It was the best day from start to finish. Thank you again we are feeling very fortunate to have had you there! Thank you so much
This beautiful couple were recommended by Mikes brother who's wedding we coordinated 6 years ago! We supported in the lead up and provided our al day management service. What a day it was! Clare & Mike wanted a Mediterranean vibe for their day and used lots of foliage and lemons to channel the sunshine! We loved that the theme was continued with the meal - pitta and dips, moussaka and pancakes topped off with limoncello!
10 years together, 4 years after first enquiring with me, 3 years (to the day) since Covid meant they had to cancel their original plans and have a small legal ceremony and Phil & Sarah finally had the wedding they wished for! It was a journey with a total replan of the day but I think they would agree it was worth the wait! What a beautiful day for the loveliest of people! We provided our all day management and pack away service.
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all you did on our wedding day. It was amazing, beautiful and despite the wind, perfect. I had the best time and it was the best day. Thank you so much, we couldn’t have done it without you for sure!!! xxxx
Tabassum & Michael, how can I sum up your day, it was just magical. A day filled with so so much love for each other, for your families and for the friends around you. Tabs & Michael had a small legal ceremony last year with Saturday their chance to celebrate their marriage surrounded by 200 of their loved ones in their own special way. Trinity Buoy Wharf was the background to a beautiful celebrant-led ceremony, drinks and canapes, a three course feast, open air speeches, evening food, music and dancing.
We met this amazing couple at one of our April weddings and they asked us to come on board to support in the final weeks and to manage the day. How could we say no!!! What a wonderful day to be part of, especially as our first London wedding.
THANK YOU for all your help on the day and leading up to it xxx
Amy & Ed got married!!! This was a day full of love, laughter and lots of sunshine for this gorgeous couple. We provided our set up service at one of of favourite venues, Sopley Mill. Amy planned every detail of her day to perfection....along with Ed of course!!! Her dream day featured beautiful blush pink tones with touches of gold.....how stunning! Amy used her creative crafting skills to create some of the key details and we think it looked amazing! So nice to see some old supplier friends and meet some new ones.
Tom & Neetha tied the knot surrounded by the most wonderful congregation of friends and family. Tom and Neetha wanted a chilled out day with and elegant look with bursts of colour. With the venue being at a distance from their home, we provided one of our higher level support packages to help pick suppliers and plan the day, as well as providing our on the day coordination service.
We received a bottle of fizz as a thank you.
Thank you for all your amazing help planning our wedding. We had the best day we could possibly hope for. From helping us find suppliers right through to running the day with such distinction, you were a massive help for us. Loads of our guests were also saying how great you were!
Post-poned from 2021 due to Covid, this couple patiently waited for the day of their 10th anniversary to finally tie the knot.....and it was well and truly worth the wait!!! It was wonderful getting to know these two gorgeous people during their journey and finally getting to manage their day for them!
Judy and Louis picked a beautiful colour palette with a subtle nod to Disney throughout the day. Check out those centrepieces! There were lots of surprises for their guests throughout the day, including an owl ring bearer and singing waiters!! It really was magical! We provided our all day management service.
We received a bottle of gin and a personalised favour as a thank you.
You are truly amazing at what you do and such a lovely person. Thank you for helping to make our wedding a true fairytale and an absolutely amazing day. Nicola you are truly amazing at what you do you made our day perfect you took all the stress away from us you were just fantastic. We can't thank you enough. xxx
Denise (with some help from Mark of course!) put her heart and soul into planning this glitz and glam wedding and we think it was beautiful! We were booked to undertake the set up and break down with a little added admin support. Denise's vision of a wedding with wow factor came to life with a colour palette of white, ivory, silver and black with added greens from the foliage to tie it all together.
We were treated to a stay at the hotel and dinner which was amazing!
Thank you so so much Nicola. You were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble. Friendly, professional and helpful. Totally going above and beyond to make sure our day went perfectly. Behind The Scenes really delivers in every way. Highly Recommend!
This gorgeous couple came to us a few months ago as they were recommended our on the day package by Becky's Brother who had been a Groom of ours 6 years ago! We provided that extra level of support to help the day run as planned so Becky & Jack could enjoy the festivities! We loved the navy, pink and rose gold colour scheme and all the little details like the personalized cookies, crisp wall, love buzz game, memory area and hand made bouquet! Even the weather couldn't put a dampener on things!
We received a beautiful selection of gins and some biscuits as a thank you!
Thank you so much for the support and kindness you have provided through our wedding journey to married life. You made our day stress free and exactly what we dreamed of! We couldn't have done it without you!
Being part of this day was a privilege and I am eternally grateful that Gift of A Wedding asked me to help coordinate the wedding of this very special couple. The theme was Greatest Showman and what an incredible group of suppliers it was that made this happen!!! From the beautiful location (and first class team!!) to the florist and venue decorators, entertainment providers, attire donators, hair and beauty services, the incredible cake baker, and those who gifted transport to the amazing photographers and videographer, honestly it makes my heart burst. The day was full of laughter, memories and so much love. We couldn't have done it without you all!
None of this would happen without the work of the team at Gift of a Wedding. For those who are not aware Gift of a Wedding bring joy, love and happiness to those with terminal or life shortening illness by gifting wedding services with the help of the generous UK wedding and hospitality industry. Patricia and the team are truly special.
We received a beautiful flower planter and afternoon tea as a thank you.
I knew that when we met you truly understood the vision for our wedding, and I know that without you, our wedding would not have been as magical as it was. You work tirelessly behind the scenes and yet you shine like a star.
