WHY IS WBA DIFFERENT?…

Honest - Sometimes you just need an honest sounding board and someone to hear your ideas then help bring them to life. Its important to me that every decision you make reflects you as a couple and creates the right atmosphere, flow and memories. Once I know your style and personalities and using my extensive experience in event management, I will be honest about what will work and what is needed.

Creative - I believe a wedding is about the joining of two lives so each wedding should showcase this union. I will take time to get to know you and ensure the plans highlight your story. I love a challenge so tell me your quirks, your passions or what you’re known for. What’s your home like? What’s your favourite hobby? What defines you? Will guests come to your wedding and know from the invitation to the sign on the drive that is it ‘you’ reflected in this event?

Calm - A Wedding Planner should always be calm. Like a swan across the lake, working hard but with all the grace I can muster! Nothing will get in the way of keeping everyone happy. Every event is about the people so this is at the forefront of every plan. I concentrate on the experiences of all involved, from the tastes, textures and temperatures to the smells and sounds. Lets do this together to ensure everyone is at ease and relaxed!

Cool, calm and on it like a car bonnet!

From her response to our initial enquiry, Annabel’s efficiency was plain to see. When we had our first Zoom call it felt like we were chatting to an old friend. It was a no brainer for us.

Annabel was a great sounding board in the early stages. She was quick to respond to my panicked emails about whether I’d done the right thing.
Annabel knew a lot of our suppliers, in fact she recommended them, which meant she knew exactly how it would all work. She was also able to get responses quickly on our queries.

Annabel provided a calming influence and was all over every detail which meant we didn’t have to be. I’m sure there was so much more going on behind the scenes that we were oblivious to!

We would 100% recommend having Annabel involved in your planning process. If you haven’t had her in your life, you’re missing out!

Calm, kind, professional and on it!

Annabel and her team have been wonderful.
We had two calls with Annabel before the wedding and she has everything under control. She's calm and collected and funny with it. She helped James and I make rational decisions on parts of the wedding we were unsure on and was able to guide us through all our questions.
On the day, Annabel and her team were invaluable. From making sure we were all running to time, to making sure we had 10 minutes to ourselves after the ceremony, conjuring up canapes we were afraid of missing! to providing me with an escape from varying conversations to make sure I could eat my dinner, Annabel was fantastic.
Both sets of parents also commented on how smooth the day went and how personable Annabel is. Thank you so much for everything, (there is so much behind the scenes we don't see too!) - we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.

An essential helping hand!

We hired Annabel for our on the day coordination for our wedding at Silverholme Manor, overlooking Lake Windermere. The wedding was for 150 people. We hired her in the weeks before the wedding to help with the on the day coordination to take the stress away from our special day. When i first spoke to Annabel, i knew that she would be perfect for the job. She knew the wedding venue exceptionally well and the suppliers. She was practical, knowledgeable and above all enthusiastic! She was helpful on the day and helped make the day run smoothly. She was great with the wedding set up and ensuring everyone is sat where the needed to be in ceremony and for the wedding breakfast, organising suppliers on the day and making sure the day stuck to the programme! She was enthusiastic and i would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs help with their wedding! For such a special day, a helping hand is really essential!

Without a doubt the best decision we made was booking Annabel!

Everybody NEEDS an Annabel at their wedding. We honestly could not recommend Annabel enough and I don't even know where to begin. Annabel is a dream and it was the best decision we made to have her as a coordinator for our wedding day.

Annabel is efficient, reliable, professional, approachable, warm, friendly, enthusiastic....the list could go on and on. Annabel immediately got our vision for our wedding day in our early video meetups and made us feel totally at ease. We chose to have a DIY wedding with the reception in tipis in a field- this meant that there were a lot of elements to come together so for us, it was essential we had somebody to ensure everything ran smoothly on the day. Annabel is incredibly knowledgeable about the local wedding industry and was quick to offer up advice and recommendations for various suppliers we were yet to book, and elements of the wedding we did not know where to begin with. In the lead up to the wedding, Annabel ensured that all of the suppliers we had booked were communicated with and were up to date with the schedule for the day.

On the day she was like the best type of fairy godmother/Mary Poppins/knight in shining armour you could ever imagine- she ensured everything ran smoothly, was quick to advise people on where to be and when, and went absolutely above and beyond. When things were running a bit behind schedule, Annabel ensured that all of our suppliers were primed and were up to speed- we didn't notice if there were any hiccups as Annabel made sure we were able to have the best time, relax, and had zero to worry about.

We finished the wedding feeling like Annabel is a true friend and part of us is sad that we won't have more regular meetups with her. We highly recommend Annabel- you will not regret booking her and make it the first thing you do!!

Thank you Annabel!!

Your help was invaluable, and we can’t tell you enough how much we appreciate your impact on our wedding

Your patience with our random questions, worries, and stresses from our earliest planning days right up through our wedding day were second to none. Your help was invaluable, and we can’t tell you enough how much we appreciate your impact on our wedding.
