Brighton and Sussex Wedding Planner/ Being a wedding planner

June 22, 2011

I recently met up with Erika from the fab Photomadly for a chat about how I got started as a wedding planner and my top tips for organising a wedding. Erika has a fantastic quirky photography style and we bonded over our love of bohemian Brighton weddings and our matching bumps which have since become the gorgeous babies Oliver (many congratulations Erika and Mark!) and Amelia (my own baby wedding planner!).

PM:  Tell me about how you got started as a wedding planner.  What made you want to get into the business?

NJ: I worked in events and always wanted to start my own business and work for myself, weddings seemed like the perfect fit as being a ‘one-man band’ is perfect for the personal service brides expect on their wedding day. I also love weddings and the opportunities they give you to be creative and work with fantastic suppliers that you might not otherwise get to work with.

PM: What do you like best about what you do?

NJ: Well I am quite a planning geek so I like making sure that everything is running on schedule and coming in on budget. I also love finding great new suppliers for unusual requests from my clients and working on their creative ideas to make them a reality. But the best thing of all is seeing the wedding come together on the day and knowing that you achieved that and that the couple will remember it for the rest of their lives….
