    What can I say - Ann was a dream!

    I was recommended to Ann quite early on in the planning of our wedding by our venue. Initially I didn't think I needed a wedding planner, but when I spoke to her, I was instantly excited by the idea of someone who I could trust to look after everything on the day and who really understood what was important to us. It was like talking to a friend who I'd known for years, and who simply understood how important all the details were. She provides both full wedding planning and on the day coordination, to which we chose the latter. In the lead up to the day Ann was always available if I wanted to ask her advice and get her to make a decision when I couldn't! She provided all the tools we needed to plan every detail, from the running of the day, logistics, suppliers, table plan, dietary requirements etc. Given her wealth of experience, I was always thankful that she filled in gaps that I hadn't even considered! Our wedding was quite a logistical challenge and Ann's support with all our suppliers and venues was noticed by everyone. I loved meeting her for venue meetings prior to the day; it made the planning really fun as she is just so easy to engage with. Ann was by far the best investment we made for our wedding day. We would do it all again if we could and would not hesitate to have Ann there to run the show! Claudia & Arron x

    Huge help!

    Ann was our on-the-day coordinator and not only was a great help to us the day of the wedding handling some issues that arose without us knowing or the day being affected, but also really helped with pieces of advice in the build up so that we were able to organise the best wedding we could. Ann - thank you so much.

    Ann was the single greatest decision we made for our wedding

    We cannot recommend Ann enough. We decided to get a planner when trying to organise our wedding became stressful and time consuming. Right from the beginning Ann made everything stress-free. She truly loves weddings and made the planning process exciting and fun.
    Ann is the most organised person in the entire world with the finest attention to detail. As a result, every little thing at our wedding was perfect.
    Ann knows EVERYTHING there is to know about weddings and guided us expertly through decisions, truly understanding our vision for the wedding and making it a reality. All her suppliers were spot on.
    Our wedding was particularly challenging with moving dates, a difficult venue and a somewhat demanding and apprehensive bride but Ann supported us unconditionally throughout. Ann always made herself available day or night if we ever needed anything.
    Ann’s planning skills are flawless so we never had to worry about a thing. On the day Ann was a calming presence and we were able to fully relax and enjoy our special day knowing she had everything under control.
    Ann went over and above to make our dreams come true and for that we are forever grateful.

    Best wedding planner ever!

    We got married in Marbella, so planning a wedding abroad was a bit daunting!
    We got in touch with Ann and straight away she made us feel so at ease and like it would be a walk in the park.
    Nothing was too much to ask, everything was organised to a tee and every single stress that I think would normally come with planning a wedding was taken away.
    I could call Ann day or night (and I did!) and she would always answer and be there to calm me down if needed!

    I honestly don't know how people even plan weddings without an Ann- she was amazing!!

    A dream to work with!

    Ann has been an absolute pleasure to work with and has made our planning experience completely stress free, especially through this extraordinary pandemic.
    Her tips, contacts and her ‘I can handle anything’ demeanour was invaluable to us.
    Unfortunately we made the hard decision to cancel the wedding but Ann helped us every step of the way during the process.
    We will be 100% working with her again when we finalise the next date.
    Thank you Ann!! xx

    Kind, supportive, dedicated, crazy talented, wedding planner!

    Ann is an incredible, kind, supportive, dedicated, crazy talented, wedding planner. She truly goes above and beyond and treats your wedding like it's her own. Ann made the whole wedding process a dream. From her expert knowledge and great contacts in the business to her immensely supportive and loving nature, I could not have asked for a better planner. I knew I could trust her to not only make my wedding a fantastic experience, but also to keep me on budget, and lovingly hold my hand through all my fears and silly questions. Ann made my wedding wonderful and I am forever grateful to her. I couldn't recommend her more highly!

    Fun and collaborative with an unforgettable wedding at the end!

    In the run up to our wedding we were each running our own business in the midst of a pandemic with a toddler in tow and a baby on the way - time was in short supply and even scarcer once the baby arrived. Without Ann our wedding would never have happened. She steered us ever forwards, sharing with us her stellar network of contacts along the way and securing the right ones for us. She is positive, she’s collaborative, no idea is dismissed and she is incredibly responsive. On the wedding day itself, Ann is in another league. We didn’t have to worry about a thing, we were so relaxed and were able to enjoy every single minute of our day - she made us her absolute priority and really took our day to the next level.

    Could not have organised our without Ann

    Ann was recommended to us through a wedding photographer she has worked with before. We contacted her with 4 months to go and she was so supportive and reassuring that we could
    make our Wedding Weekend happen. Even if we didn’t think it was possible!!

    Ann really listened to the vision of what we wanted to achieve and within days had suppliers lined up for us to review. Even when we couldn’t find suitable musicians Ann kept searching until we found the right one. She always vetted all suppliers before forwarding to us and all we had to do was say yes or no. We regularly caught up on video calls and What’sApp to keep up to date on progress, and she even took onboard organising surprises we didn’t want our partners to know about.

    On the Wedding Day itself it was great to have on hand support to perfect all the finer details and Sarah was always there to top up the lip balm - it really made you feel really special :)

    Thank Ann, Sarah and your team we really couldn’t have done it without it you. You made our Wedding Weekend dream become a reality…in only 4 months!!

    Worth every penny!!

    Lots of love
    Charlotte and Gavin

    Wonderful - you will be very lucky if you appoint Ann!

    Ann is a truly lovely person who we feel so fortunate to have met and have involved in our wedding. In a very busy year managing multiple weddings she always made time for us. Having Ann on the day, rushing round (with her amazing bag of everything-you-could-ever-need-goodies) meant that all we had to do was enjoy ourselves. I've seen her working at 3am in the morning to get things done - she is kind, fun, fabulous and all I can say is - if you manage to secure her services in her very busy timetable, then you have been very lucky indeed. Thank you Ann! N&D

    A planner & a friend!

    If you and your partner both live busy professional lives I would highly recommend working with Ann to plan your dream day. I felt in control of the things I wanted to do myself all while having an incredible support system behind me for all the things that aren't so fun. Ann made everything seem possible, and also advised us on things NOT to do which actually was more helpful. Ann also was a perfect sounding board for when you just want to talk about the smallest details of the wedding! Not only did I feel like the never ending todo list of a wedding was organised and on track, we had a lot of fun doing it together. I can't recommend Ann enough, best planner ever.

    Excellent service from a superb planner.

    We had Ann for on the day coordination but she provided so much more. The phrase "added value" could have been invented for her. Before we met Ann, we had no idea that we needed a wedding planner or how important it would be have have her.

    As the day moved ever closer, we came to learn the value of having Ann on the team (in fact captaining and managing the team!). She has an excellent eye for detail which proved invaluable.

    We found Ann to be a consumate professional and an expert in her field. Friendly, knowledgeable and easy to work with, Ann guided us through the minefield of wedding organisation with a cheery smile and reassuring words. She put us at ease because it was clear that she had literally thought of everything that needed to be considered.

    On the day itself, Ann dealt with a number of issues (unknown to us at the time) to ensure the day ran perfectly as planned. She could be seen working tirelessly on a myriad of tasks and even provided one guest with a corn plaster having spotted that they were struggling with a painful foot.

    All in all, we are delighted we used Ann's considerable skills as she undoubtedly was the reason our special day went without a hitch and so many of our guests said it was the best wedding they have been to.

    We couldn't have done it without you Ann!

    We knew Ann was the planner for us when she first told us about her Google wedding planning spreadsheets! Her kind and friendly demeanour meant we instantly warmed to her and we knew she would the perfect person to plan our day.
    Planning a wedding during COVID was always going to be tricky, however Ann's great knowledge of the industry, the right suppliers and her ability to develop strong interpersonal relationships meant that when things were so uncertain (right up until the week before the wedding!) all our suppliers were so supportive in trying to ensure we had the day we wanted. On the day, Ann and her team worked so hard throughout the whole day and night to ensure everything went to plan which meant that we could just relax and enjoy the day (even down to making sure my lipstick was always topped up!)
    The time and effort Ann put into planning our wedding was invaluable and we honestly could not have had the day we wanted without her - everything was perfect. We can't thank or recommend her enough. Sofia & Rick x

    You need this lady in your life!

    Ann is not just a wedding planner; she is a superwoman and our fairy godmother. Within a few weeks of getting engaged, we decided to find a wedding planner, because we were really keen to tap into someone's little black book of tried and tested suppliers and venues - with a wedding there is no space for trial and error! We organised a chat with Ann, and instantly warmed to how friendly, kind, experienced, and unflappable she is, so we were really excited to find out that she was able to add us to her list of lucky couples!
    As the pandemic wore on, it became increasingly clear that our big wedding in spring 2021 was not going to be feasible, so we decided to split our plans into an intimate wedding on our original date, and a big party at a later date. It wasn't an easy decision to make, but having Ann's support emotionally, as well as logistically in terms of re-contracting with the suppliers was utterly invaluable. We had the absolute day of our dreams (with another one still to come) and Ann made it happen. For this, we will be forever grateful 🖤

    Ann Nicholas Wedding Planning's reply:

    Ahhh thank you so much Amy! It was a perfect day, and like you said, we get to do it all again in 2023 xxx

    Our wedding would not have happened with out Ann!


    My fiancé and I lived in Australia the whole
    time we were planning our London Wedding.
    We had spoken to a couple of planners before Ann & we didn’t think anyone could give us the support we needed planning the wedding from the other side of the world,then we spoke to Ann and we knew from the first chat on the phone Ann was the right person!
    Ann took so much time listening to what we needed, giving helpful advise and pointing us in the right direction where we didn’t quite know what to do.During the planning process Ann went out of her way to make sure we had the right suppliers. Ann met met us a year prior to the wedding when we visited London for Christmas and introduced us to our caterers who were also amazing.
    Ann always went out of her way in the lead up to the wedding to speak to us at the time that worked with the time zone differences.
    Our wedding was a blank canvass wedding therefore everything had a separate supplier meaning our supplier list was huge! Ann co-ordinated all of them & had every single detail covered so we knew when we arrived in the UK to get married we had absolutely nothing to worry about.
    Ann visited our wedding venues to make sure she knew exactly what to expect on the day. Ann also happily let me have things delivered to her house and also met up with my mum to take a few bits
    off her prior to the wedding.
    On the day Ann was so organised and there wasn’t anything she hadn’t thought of and covered. She was also had a amazingly calm when her thought I’d lost my wedding ring to morning of the wedding. Ann also had 2 other ladies with her on the day who were lovely and waited on myself and husband hand and foot during the wedding reception. Our wedding would definitely not gone ahead with Ann, every bride needs an Ann even if you don’t think you do.
