Compliments

Katherine & Dan

First and foremost Sarah is one of the loveliest people you could hope to meet. We're sure that you, like us, will have no doubt that you'd be delighted having her in your life and at your wedding. Suppliers also find her equally charming it seems, and her network is replete with delightful, punctual and highly effective people.

 

Further, she appears to be utterly capable and unflappable. She gave birth to her first child 6 weeks before our wedding and everything still went like clockwork. At every turn, at every obstacle we found ourselves thinking either "wow, she's has got this" or "this is clearly not her first rodeo".

 

She was also highly sensitive and totally focussed on it being *our* wedding and achieving our vision. While she will not hesitate to deftly and gently steer you away from the terrible and the impractical, Sarah really cares that you get what you've been dreaming about for your day while using a firm hand to operate within the constraints you lay down.

 

We're both happy to say that, after our choice of spouses, hiring Sarah was hands-down the second best decision we made about our wedding. She clearly loves her job and she's great at it.

Hannah & Adam

We started working with Sarah when we were looking for a venue 6-8 months before our proposed wedding day. We had a very clear vision of a quirky venue in mind and Sarah helped source lots of fantastic venues and arranged the logistics of viewings which made the process much more fun. She also helped us see that our final venue choice was a fun and sensible choice when we have previously said no hotels!

 

We moved countries while planning our wedding and having a What’s App group with Sarah was something we really appreciated for quick updates and communication. Sarah really understood our needs as a couple and worked tirelessly to support our wish for a ‘non-wedding’ wedding which was more about the party side, but which reflected our personalities.

 

Sarah’s skills as an event organiser come in to their own on the actual day and we are very grateful for her passion and energy. 

Andrea & Richard

Me and Rich just wanted to say thank you so so much for being our wedding planner, we're so glad we chose you, we can't imagine how we could have organised everything, found vendors and had the day run smoothly without you.

 

We had an amazing day, filled with so much fun, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to other couples! And thanks for helping me find the brightest bridesmaid dresses in London!

We simply couldn't have seen our vision for a ceremony in Victoria Park come to life without Sarah's help. As soon as we met her, we knew that we were in safe hands.

 

She completely relieved any pressure and took care of everything - from about supplier deliveries to timings, and had everything running like clockwork.

She also organised canapes and ran the bar, and made sure everyone was in the right place at the right time. She's super professional but also a lot of fun, my mum is still raving about her!

We would thoroughly recommend working with Sarah to any couple.

We didn’t realise how much we needed a wedding planner until Sarah took charge.

 

There were infinite details that not only did we have no understanding of, but we’d have struggled to cope with fitting them all in. Her knowledge of events, schedules, timings and her bargaining ability is fantastic. There’s nothing Sarah won’t explore for you and her creativity is a huge asset to her.

 

We simply would not have been able to come in on budget, on time, or for the wedding process to have been enjoyable without the support of Emerald & Mae. I can not recommend employing their services more - they are terrific.

Working with Sarah is a dream. She’s smart, talented, creative and organised. Her ability to translate any ideas or thoughts you have into reality is quite impressive, as is her ability to suggest solutions, concepts or workarounds if you’re not too sure what you’re looking for or come to a decision you weren’t expecting.

 

We worked with Sarah for just over a year, and without her guidance, professionalism, great attitude and sheer determination, we would not have had the wedding we were so lucky enough to have.

 

From her initial suggestion of our venue, Sarah was instrumental to the realisation of our day, across every decision and detail – without ever making either of us feel that she was rushing us for feedback or being over bearing. Having Sarah in our corner just meant that it took a huge amount of weight off our shoulders.

 

We were able to discuss ideas or thoughts as a couple and chat them through with her, or discuss what our concerns were and she’d always have a number of suggestions about how to best mitigate or solve, within the budget parameters we were working too. 

 

Each supplier she found were excellent and the day (and the run up) was fantastic.

 

Whether or not Sarah could say the same thing about us…….well, that’s another story!

Thank you so much for organising such a smooth wedding day for us at Green's.  

 

You made wedding planning fun and stress-free from start to finish. We really appreciate how you listened to our ideas and, with your creativity and experience in the industry, turned them into a beautiful wedding day. You went above and beyond both in the planning phase and on the day; no detail was missed, which allowed us to completely relax and enjoy our day.

 

Having you plan our reception so meticulously saved our day; in hindsight we wish we'd had a wedding planner for all elements of the day. We had no idea when we set out planning the wedding just how many suppliers we'd have to negotiate with (twenty in total!) and how challenging it would be to manage them all, particularly in the last month! We will most definitely be recommending you anyone looking for a wedding planner.

Where to start? Planning a wedding and writing a review about someone who added so much to the day that is the anchor to your future. We didn’t start out looking for a wedding planner, and our original plan was something simple and fun but a ‘simple wedding’ needs a lot of planning. There is so much we could say about Sarah, she was always a source of calmness in the ever growing storm of invites, guests, venues and catering but the best part she played was in being a great sounding board for our sometimes outrageous ideas which she helped incorporated into our wedding day seamlessly.

 

Sarah completely understood what we wanted on our wedding day, taking our own personality into account and brought all the elements together with great enthusiasm with the help of her endless list of contacts. Sarah also came up with some of our best and most memorable elements to our reception that had our guests talking for months to come. Doing all this while keeping our budget in check. So where to start, we can only say we were luckily enough to meet Sarah and we will be eternally grateful all her advice, help and support in what proved to be the most magical day which we will cherish forever.

Hiring a wedding planner has to be the best decision we ever made when  organising our wedding. Sarah at Emerald & Mae made everything so easy for us. All the stresses that you would expect leading up to the big day were taken away from us and Sarah kindly took them on and organised everything perfectly. We had three venues and around 28 suppliers at our wedding and Sarah was the key contact for all of them leading up to the wedding. She contacted them all, arranged schedules, confirmed all the details, met them all on the day, helped them set up and kept everything to time.

 

Sarah was a real pleasure to work with and we had so much fun meeting and planning with her. She helped us with every request no matter how big or how small. Her help was invaluable, not only leading up to the wedding but on the actual day it's self. To have someone there on the day answering supplier questions, organising guests to the right places, organising photographer videographer etc ensuring all the photos we requested were taken, keeping us as bride and groom away from as much of the 'admin' as possible meant that we were able to enjoy the day and spend as much time with each other as possible.

 

I am so grateful that we were able to work with Sarah at Emerald & Mae. Without her our wedding would not have been as easy or as amazing as it was and it was a pleasure getting to know her. I would unreservedly recommend her to anyone that asks.

Trying to find the perfect venue for our wedding proved really tough, but then Sarah took over the search and found us exactly what we had been looking for.  From our first meeting, Sarah really grasped what we were after, and came up with a selection of venues that we would not have even considered, despite researching what felt like hundreds of venues ourselves! 

 

Her experience meant that she knew exactly what questions to ask, and also helped us bring all the different elements together, whilst coming up with suggestions and ideas of different ways to do things.  In comparison to other people we had spoken to who just roll out the same wedding time and time again, Sarah’s attention to detail, enthusiasm and vision has helped us create our  dream wedding at our perfect venue.   Working with Sarah has been a real pleasure and I have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone.
