Who I Am
Hello! Bonjour! Hola! Ciao! Konnichiwa! Namaste! Guten Tag!
I’m Annabelle, ‘slayer of inefficiency and the problem banisher’ [as described by Zoey & David].
My love and passion for all things weddings and events began with an overwhelming feeling I had the first time I helped make my very first couple's dreams come true. That feeling has never left and is what drives me to achieve greatness for all of my couples.
A wedding is a wonderful, individual and highly emotional occasion and often the most important day of two people’s and their families lives. It is a true privilege to be a part of that and to help their dreams become reality.
After nearly a decade of planning weddings and events, both private and corporate, in multiple venues, including grade 1 and 2 listed buildings, in London and the South East of England I have gained invaluable knowledge and experience in what to do. I have come to appreciate how critical it is to have all parts planned with meticulous detail, including contingency plans for all eventualities, as you never know what may happen.
I believe having a connection with couples is crucial. Having this connection, and later a friendship, allows me to genuinely get to know the couple and create a wedding which is a true celebration of them! It also makes the whole planning process so much fun and a real joy!
Ray Bradbury once said, "Love what you do and do what you love. You do what you want, what you love. Imagination should be the centre of your life". I can truly say that I have found this love in weddings and events! I can’t and don’t want to see myself doing anything else.
Best wishes, Annabelle x

I love building friendships with all of my couples. As a result I get sad when a wedding is over!

Candles are a MUST and are everywhere in my home.
