Paapa and Rosa

If we could give Ann 10 stars out of 5, we would. We can not overemphasise what a transformational effect Ann had on our wedding experience, both in the run up and on the day. Ann was so considerate, imaginative, organised, thoughtful, attentive and FULL OF WISDOM. She made every step of what is a challenging process so smooth and achievable, I don’t know how we would have managed it without her. And on the day, she was a ninja. Anticipating problems before they happened, putting out fires with minimum fuss and all without us even being aware of her being there! She’s a genius. So so so good at her job and on top of that, such a wonderful, kind and celebratory human being. If you’re still deciding about who to go with to plan your wedding, stop now and hire her. I guarantee you won’t find anyone better.

Amazing Ann!

Ann was amazing to work with! She made our wedding stress-free and seamless from start to finish! I enjoyed every second of the wedding planning process with Ann because she made it relaxing and straightforward from the moment we met to the day and night of the wedding! I can honestly say that thanks to Ann neither of us were stressed once throughout the entire process. We were engaged and married within one year so we didn’t have lots of time but we had everything we wanted and more for our special day. Ann is a complete professional and knows everything you need to know and more about weddings! We are so pleased we used Ann and highly recommend her.

Miracle worker who makes the build up and the day enjoyable with little to no stress at all

Words cannot express the gratitude we have for Ann after having such a perfect wedding that we haven’t been able to stop talking about since.
Our wedding was initially booked for 2020, and after 3 years and 3 venues, our big day finally went through without a hitch in may 2023.
This is all thanks to Ann, who recommend to us the best in the industry for suppliers, from flowers, to the photographer, and the evening entertainment. Ann also kept all contracts, ensured that all suppliers were available for the new dates of your wedding, and handled all communication. I’ve made this sound a lot more straightforward than it is, and I couldn’t imagine doing this all without Ann and I can see how weddings drive people to being so stressed they have to take time off. Ann handles all this for you, it’s an incredible skill and asset to have so many connections in the industry and constantly be positive as Ann has been for us.
As Ann had worked with all the suppliers we booked in the past and they had all worked with each other, the day couldn’t have run smoother. Ann Is also available at all any time for support via the phone, teams or In person, which is so important when you have sudden worries and need reassurance.
We have had many comments since our big day that it was the best wedding our guests had been too, and that was down to the work Ann had done behind the scenes from the first day we engaged with Ann until the big day itself. It was seamless, we wasn’t stressed at any point and everyone enjoyed the whole day including all our suppliers.
If there is one thing I could recommend to anyone that is going through the turmoils of arranging a marriage, contact Ann, everything will be taken care of for you by the loveliest, most supportive knowledgeable person you will ever need.
We can’t thank Ann enough and our wedding wouldn’t not have been the day it was without her.
Thank you Ann for everything
Love Ashleigh and Danny

Simply priceless

Within the first few minutes of chatting to Ann we knew the she was the wedding planner we wanted. She understands everything about weddings and clearly loves her job. She completely got what we wanted from the day and helped in ways we didn’t even know we needed. She found amazing suppliers. Always replied to messages fast. She was the best decision we made! She’s warm, calm, supportive. She was priceless on the day. There is nothing she doesn’t have in her emergency bag. Without a doubt I would recommend her to anyone.

A planner that goes above and beyond expectations

If it weren't for Ann we would still be engaged! My partner and I were engaged for 2 years already and still had no idea where to start and we've seen enough couples planning their wedding to know we couldn't have done this ourselves.

We have spoken to a fair few wedding planners but had a good feeling with Ann and we couldn't have made a better decision. Her work ethic is second to none and will go above and beyond to ensure your wedding is perfect and stress-free. We're so impressed at how quick she will get back to you no matter what time it is and super flexible especially if there's any last minute change to plans.

On the day itself the bridal party and myself didn't have to do or worry about anything as Ann got it covered. One of the bridesmaids mentioned that it was the least hectic and most organised wedding they've ever been to. Ann didn't just make sure that everything was in the right place at the right time but also checked in on how we're doing throughout the day. She even topped up my lippy and fixed my dress when I didn’t have time to think about it!

The wedding was absolutely perfect with zero stress that we actually got to enjoy our special day and it's all thanks to Ann. She's an absolute gem of a planner that you would count yourself lucky if you manage to secure her in her busy schedule. I would hire Ann again in a heartbeat as we couldn't have done it without her.

Final month management / On the day co-ordination

We could not have hoped for more from Ann. She was incredibly responsive, always available, really organised, always willing to attend calls with other suppliers and speak to us when we needed. She also gave really useful recommendations and suggestions when we were still in the planning stages which made a big difference to the day. On the day itself, Ann ensured the day ran incredibly smoothly - we knew we were in safe hands. She worked tirelessly to ensure everything went to plan, and of course is just a lovely, friendly person (which is really what you want on your wedding day!). Could not recommend more!

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.

The Words 'Thank You' Are Inadequate...

The words 'thank you' are simply inadequate to recognise the massive impact you have had on the design and delivery of our wedding day!
We really appreciate your guidance and ideas, your coaching and your calmness, your absolute attention to detail and your ability to just get things done. You have a network of amazing colleagues who love working with you and its obvious why! An Ann Nicholas Wedding will be a professional, smooth, personal and perfect wedding and everyone wants to be associated with that! I would definitely recommend you to friends and family and anyone reading this recommendation! Thank You!

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
