Elevated everything about our wedding

Hardesty Event Design was incredible from start to finish and our wedding would not have been the same without Emily and all her hard work. Emily helped with styling, booking suppliers (including some show stopping singing waiters) and also all the logistics elements seamlessly. I know a lot of friends who didn't have wedding planners were so stressed in the lead up to their weddings but I found the experience smooth and calm as Emily took all that weight off our shoulders, meaning we could really enjoy not just the day but the lead up to the wedding too. We couldn't recommend Emily more, if you're looking for help with your wedding then look no further.

Flawless from start to finish!

I cannot recommend Hardesty Event Design's services enough! We got married at a Norfolk-based dry hire barn venue in July last year, and utilised the 'bespoke planning' service offered by Emily's team to help us throughout the process - from initial vision, through to the day itself.

Emily’s endless knowledge of the industry and years of passionate dedication to helping others create the best day of their lives was so clear throughout the process. Her recommendations and advice at each stage were invaluable. With our venue being dry hire, it seemed like a huge hill to climb to get everything sorted. But Emily helped to organise our thoughts and break everything down, making each element seem much more manageable. From catering and bars, to furniture hire and candles; Emily helped us find some incredible suppliers. Each recommendation made our dream vision become a reality!

We only started our planning process 11 months before the day, due to some last-minute availability at the venue we'd set our hearts on. So this felt very overwhelming as we had so many people telling us it wasn't possible to get everything planned in time! However, Emily was incredibly reassuring and immediately set out to help us to make our dream day a reality. Emily wasn't available for on-the-day coordination services due to being a guest herself, so recommended an industry contact who was incredibly thorough and took any stress away from us throughout the day! We had the most incredible time, and every aspect was beyond what we’d imagined. I cannot reiterate enough how thankful we are to Hardesty Event Design for believing in us and making it possible!
