Absolutely Amazing

Sian was an absolutely amazing wedding planner! From the first time we spoke to her we knew it was the perfect fit. She took her time to understand our needs and culture, and went above and beyond the call of duty. We only booked her for the on the day coordination services, but she knew how stressful the planning process was and stepped in way ahead of time to help with the vendors, our wedding stationary and so much more! She was available 24/7 and helped us with even the smallest of details. Her attention to detail, quick wit, and extensive contacts helped us get the best of the best. For such a short planning experience (she helped us plan this in 4 months with a guest count of 335 people) she took so much burden from us, and really made the experience easier.

The day turned out absolutely beautiful, by far one of the best days of our lives! And the team she brought to support on the day were perfect.

Overall, I couldn’t recommend Sian enough, she was a stranger that became family.

Sian, thank you for your care, kindness and dedication to Femi and I. You were literally the perfect fit for us, and we already miss you terribly!

Superb from start to finish!

My wife and I had asked Sian to be our toastmaster for our wedding - she was FANTASTIC from start to finish and a pleasure to work with. Extremely easy to get along whilst providing some excellent advice for us on the day. Sian was extremely detail orientated and ensured everything on the day ran on time, working seemlessly with all our suppliers but was also a calming presence for my wife and I. The event literally wouldn't have been a success without her our families are extremely grateful. All the best Sian and thank you again.

Hire her early is the only tip!!!

She is simply the best! She knows what she’s doing and she makes the magic happen! We hired her as our wedding day planner and she was tremendously helpful throughout! She recommends reliable suppliers and you can just totally depend on her! She saved us a lot of time to go through the details with her wisdom about the industry inside out. She is simply the best and if there is only one tip - we would say hire her early so you can avoid all the planning stress as much as possible! And she is just so lovely and easy to work with! She does not push you to go with her plans or tell you what to do, but she will just simply always find the best way to make your dream come true and bring into life whatever plan you had in mind! And believe us, her tips and recommendations are very very helpful!

Our own fairy godmother for the big day!

Our own fairy godmother for the big day!! Sian was fantastic from beginning to end and made sure every detail was thought of and taken care of. She made the whole experience of planning a wedding very enjoyable and took away the stress. Her knowledge was invaluable and thought of things we would have never considered. She ensured the day ran smoothly and that everyone knew where to go, what was happening etc. Overall, a dream to work with and truly made the day fantastic!

Game changer!

We were in two minds as to whether we needed a toastmaster, it was only my mum encouraging me to look into it as we were nervous about the flow of the day and potentially being stressed by timings on the day, that made me consider it. However I really didn't want a traditional man you'd expect in this kind of role hollering at our guests, it wasnt the vibe i was after! So when we found Sian we knew we were so lucky, she was exactly what we needed, hoped for and so much more. She's a charming lovely person who we warmed to straight away. Her professional approach and understanding of what makes a wedding flow, along with her vast experience really made her stand out. We had an initial call and immediately booked Sian as our Toast Master, she filled me with confidence from the off and I knew on the day she could handle anything and could keep things running smoothly.
Sian was so polite and lovely to the point that all our guests commented on how great she was! We couldn't have wished for more!
From my perspective she really helped make our day, solving problems and keeping everything on time. Listening to our needs and concerns, its the little details and top tips shared too which were invaluable. So many worries creep into your head in the weeks leading up to the wedding and she really helped us to organise suppliers and settle the nerves.
We cannot thank Sian enough and absolutely recommend her to anyone who is considering a modern day Toast Master!

Sian really saved the day!

We were looking for an on-the-day coordinator and we had spoken to a few event planners. All great, but Sian stood out head and shoulders above the rest. She was very frank with us from the get-go and offered really valuable guidance in our very first meeting.
On the day, she proved to be exceptional and honestly, I'm not sure our day would have been anywhere near as good without her. She really and truly saved the day on a number of occasions. She's really personable and kind, she knows her stuff and she just gets things done. If you are looking for a very safe pair of hands, look no further. Have been recommending her to anyone and everyone that will listen. Thank you so much, Sian. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to fully convey how grateful we are for everything that you did to make our day so special.

A wedding planner who is better than a dream!

We approached Sian at the initial stages of our wedding planning process feeling uncertain about whether we would want to have a wedding planner. We had been through a few consultations with several wedding planners but as soon as we spoke with Sian, we felt instantly at ease.

Sian helped us plan our wedding from the outset - she made herself available day in and out to answer any questions that we had and to calm our anxieties - whether it was around wedding dresses, decoration, music, Sian was an absolute treasure trove of advice and guidance. Sian pre-empted every circumstance right up to the smallest of details on the day, like keeping aside canapes for my husband and I to enjoy on our wedding day - a moment my husband and I still cherish. It really goes to show how caring and diligent Sian is, not just with planning a wedding, but for giving us the opportunity to have intimate and special moments that made the day our own. We had numerous compliments about our wedding day with our guests being in absolute awe of Sian's planning and coordination on the day.

We have really missed speaking with Sian as she practically became a member of our family during the planning process. We couldn't recommend a better partner to plan the wedding of your dreams!

Top Notch Party Co-ordinator

My partner and I choose Sian for “on-the-day” co-ordination for our Civil Partnership Reception. I had the time to do a lot of the party planning myself but very soon realised that I would need help in the run up to the reception and on the day. I am so glad I found Sian to do this for me.
She is super organised, a great communicator, has loads of energy and lots of experience and ideas. She had worked with our venue before which was a bonus. Sian also found a great DJ for us who was exactly right for the age group of our guests.
It was great to know there was someone in the background if I needed any advice in the lead up to the party. Sian also managed all the supplier co-ordination during the week before our big day which gave me much needed down time. I hadn’t realised how important this would be.
On the day she made sure everything ran smoothly and was always on hand if we needed anything. If you are looking for a top-notch wedding co-ordinator – look no further.

Simply the best, made it what it was! Thank you!

Fairly late on in the process, my wife to be Anna and I began to realise that we had probably bitten off more than we could chew in trying to arrange our rustic October wedding celebration at our local Windmill, to be followed by an all night celebration and party for 140 plus guests at our small home (requiring the logistics and organisation worthy of a small army!). Fortunately for us we found Sian at Busy Brides, who, even with a little over 4 months until our happy day, immediately put us at ease and got to work helping to organise and arrange every aspect of our wedding.

Nothing was too much trouble. Problems were fixed before they even surfaced thanks to Sian’s encyclopaedic knowledge of suppliers, options and endless suggestions, and we were introduced to some of the most incredible people and amazing services - from the best food and drink, catering options, bar and serving staff, wedding design and incredible styling through to the cake, flowers, band, marquees, tipis and toilets needed to cater for everyone. Sian supported us brilliantly throughout and dealt with our every worry and concern.

As it turns out, we needn’t have worried at all as everything came together perfectly on the day, beautifully choreographed, and exactly how we wanted it - all thanks to Sian. It takes a special person to be able to capture a complex vision and help create an amazing venue at home, on a budget, in such a short time, and to make this a day that we will love and cherish and everyone else will remember for many years to come. Throughout the journey, Sian dealt with us as friends rather than clients, because that’s how she is with everyone.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to our wonderful Sian. as cliched as it is, we couldn’t have done it without you, and we only managed it because of you!

We truly had the best day ever - and everyone that came seems to say the same too!

First rate wedding planner

Sian was brilliant from the get go. She helped us with picking the venue, suppliers following through with everything and wedding day coordination. She saved us money as she negotiated with the suppliers and wedding venues and gave us wedding inside knowledge at every turn. Our wedding day was beyond incredible with many people congratulating on what a great job we had done but it was all due to Sian. She put a smile on our face everytime we met with her and it make wedding planning a fun experience. Highly recommend Sian!!!

Highly recommend Sian!

Sian was fantastic - sourced great suppliers, a beautiful venue and incredibly organised on the big day so we could enjoy our wedding without a worry. Would 100% recommend her.

We found Sian on hitched - we had calls with three well reviewed wedding planners in total and decided to go with Sian because she immediately made us feel at ease, was warm and bubbly and fun to talk to, and has experience with cross-cultural weddings like ours. We started out not really knowing what we wanted (1 event? 2? Big? Small? Destination? Local?) and Sian patiently guided us through and sourced venue options that helped us narrow down what we were looking for. Sian did all the hard work on sourcing venue and suppliers so we could simply show up, look around and say yes or no, and always choose from a small, manageable number of options so it was a perfect balance between having options to choose from but not being overwhelmed or not knowing where to start.

Sian was available pretty much 24/7 despite having lots of weddings on at all times, super responsive, always positive and a pleasure to chat to, and went above and beyond for us. She miraculously managed to keep us on budget, even making some savings in stationary by getting things printed herself and shipped to us. We asked her lots of silly questions (are party favours still a thing?) and she sorted things out we wouldn't have thought about (how will the bride arrive unseen).

On the day itself, the venue looked fantastic, the guests loved it and we got compliments on how well run the day was, with no dull moments. Sian was incredibly organised and efficient meaning we could simply relax and enjoy our day

On the day Coordination

Everything about our wedding day was incredible and we owe so much of this to Sian! Honestly, at the start of the process we weren’t even sure if we needed a dedicated wedding planner but Sian made us realise that having such an organised, thorough and personable wedding coordinator is a complete game-changer. It would have been so much more difficult without her! The more we met her spoke to her, the less stressed we were about the wedding and it even feels we became good friends! I definitely recommend her to anyone getting married in the future.

A personal touch

Sian is an excellent wedding planner, she is everything we expected and needed her to be! Through the whole process she kept us focused, added in personal touches and ideas and saved us money where possible. She has a friendly demeanour and always goes the extra mile. Your wedding day is one of the happiest days of your lives, not only did Sian deliver on that, but she made it a totally stress free day for us. If you want someone organised, meticulous and attentive, go with Sian!

Cannot recommend enough

When we decided we were going to have a DIY wedding reception in a farmers barn we were nervous about the risk we were taking, but wow it paid off and we couldn’t of done it without Sian’s’ help! Everyone commented on how incredible it looked..

What we got was over and above what we expected. Sian came and visited our venue to run through our vision and timeline of the day and where we wanted everything to be set up, we soon realised how fortunate we were to have found her. Her experience means she has lots of lovely ideas, and helped us with things we hadn’t thought of - such as the size of the generator we needed, ours was too small and Sian was able to get a larger one, at discount, last minute in peak wedding season! Our fear prior to hiring Sian was that Jack would need to be at the barn to coordinate suppliers arriving and setting up then rush to get ready to make the service, we didn’t want the stress of this and having Sian took all that worry away! She coordinated all the suppliers and then was there to greet everyone and sort out the last minute details.

Our wedding day was incredible; everyone commented on how smoothly everything ran and Sian managed to keep Jack and I on time! She is also so thoughtful and made sure we both had drinks and were happy with how the day was going, if there was anything that went wrong on the day I still don’t know about it as Sian handled everything.

I cannot recommend BusyBrides enough, our wedding day wouldn’t of been the same without Sian and we are so grateful for all you did.

Couldn't imagine having the wedding of my dreams without you

I couldn`t imagine having the Wedding of my dreams without you.

From the first meeting BusyBrides made everything simple and made suggestions for things that I hadn`t even considered, creating and adjusting my timeline to ensure the entire day would run smoothly.

Sian contacted every single one of my many suppliers to take away any stress and her on the day co-ordination service meant the day was flawless. From hanging pinatas, to dressing tables and making sure my music worked throughout the ceremony

Sian was by far the best support I could have asked for and I honestly believe anyone trying to organise a wedding would benefit from her array of knowledge, contacts and advice. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts xxx
