Mr & Mrs Hodges
When I started planning our wedding - looking at the budget and the many venues out there, I was a little overwhelmed with all the options. A friend said to me 'had I considered a Wedding Planner to help?' - get the good deals and help with the budget. She put me in touch with Sian Belton and it was a very good move.
I already had quite a few of my own ideas, but running them by Sian was so useful - she was able to get some excellent rates with suppliers and was generally a good sounding board. Specifically Sian also found our wedding band/DJ (discounted), fairytale favours in the US which I went on to purchase, our HODGES letters and she also set up our wedsite (website). Sian also prepared a list of questions for me to check with our venue- as I had a onsite Wedding Planner (at Parklands)
I would strongly recommend anyone planning a wedding to have a website (wedsite!) set up - we included all of other details on there, collected our RSVPs, managed our coach booking and also our honeymoon gift list. Sian designed it beautifully, and ensured it was accessible for the computer and smart phones too.
Sian was lovely to work with, understood our needs, had great contacts and ideas.
