    Superb service - essential for couples

    We commissioned the Wedding Coordinators to co-ordinate our wedding day in June 2021. From the very beginning, Zeleka was incredibly helpful giving us tons of advice and tips given the government Covid-19 restrictions. Their aisle planner was so useful and helped us plan the seating layout and communication with our suppliers. It encouraged us to read through contracts with our suppliers to ensure they were delivering the services we had paid for. Throughout the planning phase, they were professional, responsive and offered so much useful information to help us make informed decisions. They helped us put together the timeline for the day ensuring responsibility for every activity was delegated to named people or suppliers. TWC handled all communication with our suppliers towards the end of the planning phase and even helped us make a few last minute changes to improve the overall appearance of our reception. On the day, the co-ordination was seamless - Tiffany and Ameena worked really well with all of our other suppliers and checked in with us throughout the day to make sure we were okay and running to time. They remained friendly, calm and professional. If there was any issues or hiccups with any of the suppliers, I wasn't aware of it because the whole day went perfectly. I can't recommend TWC enough - they're worth their weight in gold. The lack of stress over details helped make our day really special ❤

    Zeleka & TWC came through at the 11th hour for the day of our dreams!

    TLDR: Zeleka and the Wedding Day Coordinators came through at the 11th hour to help my husband and I pull off the day of our dreams!

    I contacted Zeleka 7 days before the wedding for what I thought would be minor assistance with on the day coordination, and quickly realised that there was so much I hadn't considered - on the day scheduling, seating plan, floral arrangement, audio-visual set up and testing etc. After speaking to Zeleka, I knew I had found the person as determined (and maybe, as crazy?) as I to work fast, work smart and pull it all together seamlessly. Her famous last words before we sped off into execution mode was "what am I getting myself into?" :)

    Zeleka and I became fast friends - voice-noting, emailing, WhatsApping day and night to coordinate everything from big decisions around seating plan and music playlists to small things such as stationary design. She came through for my husband and I with a personal referral for entertainment, and filled in many other gaps including bringing furniture and designing our menu cards before having them printed. Absolutely no stone was left unturned!

    They say that you should choose your wedding vendors wisely and I'm so glad my state of panic led me to Zeleka and the Wedding Day Coordinators. The day was a perfect representation of my husband and I's personalities, and everything was handled so smoothly as to not distract from the overwhelming love in the room. One of my favourite moments of my wedding day was when I saw a surprise guest and started crying. Best believe, Zeleka was there to wipe my tears and make sure my make-up was intact!

    I cannot recommend the Wedding Day Coordinators highly enough for, of course, their professional and thoughtful wedding design, planning and coordination - but even moreso for a friend throughout what can be a very stressful time (and a friend even after the big day!)

    I can't wait to plan our vow renewal with Zeleka and the Wedding Day Coordinators (and will leave more than 7 days to plan, haha!)

    A bride’s best friend

    After feeling overwhelmed by our multiple postponements and the contact for our venue always changing due to the pandemic. Talking to the Wedding Coordinators and Zeleka gave me the first good night sleep I had for months.

    No matter how much you plan and organise, weddings are stressful and to put it simply Zeleka is a bride’s best friend. She’s always at the other end of the phone to council decisions and give great advice. She was so professional when talking to other vendors that I had picked for the wedding to the point where they made a point of letting me know how she made their job easier.

    The day itself went off without a hitch, Zeleka and her team had everything covered. Just one example of this was our wedding was in July and as guests were arriving in torrential rain (typical) guests were getting confused as to which entrance to go through and we’re picking any just to get out of the rain and Zeleka and her team saw this coming and made an agreement with the venue that my guests were able to use that entrance. I of course had no idea.

    I can’t thank Zeleka enough for her professionalism, organisation and advice for our wedding. She peace of mind personified.

    Thank you Wedding Coordinators!

    All our love,
    Hannah & Jason

    The Wedding Day Coordinators's reply:

    Thank you, Hannah & Jason,

    It is so nice to hear the impact we have on our couples even before their wedding day has arrived. Wishing you many happy years ahead.

    Perfect in every way

    About 6 months into planning our wedding we realised a wedding coordinator would be a useful person to have around! Working in PR & events ourselves we know what it takes to pull a team of people together to make things go to plan on the day and we were determined not to slip into “work mode” while trying to enjoy our day. We found Zeleka and her team by a quick search and they looked like they really knew their stuff. Our first call with Zeleka put our minds at ease that this was 100% the person we needed to ensure we could properly relax and focus on the job of getting married! In the run up, Zeleka provided so much helpful guidance and tips on things we’d not even thought of, she recommended brilliant professional suppliers, she accompanied us to walkthroughs and conducted her own research on the size, layout and peculiarities of our venue. The planning is never without its stresses but knowing Zeleka and her team were there ready to jump into action on the day made it all that bit easier. On the day, the team were a delight to have around and absolutely nailed the coordination on the day. We sailed through with zero cares, safe in the knowledge that everything was taken care of. The Wedding Day Coordinators are genuinely one in a million, we’re so lucky to have found them and would recommend them a hundred times over to anyone looking for a stress-free day :)

    Highly Recommended

    We recently worked with zeleka and The Wedding Coordinators Team, after a client of ours booked them for there wedding. They were incredibly professional, supportive and efficient throughout the wedding day and the months beforehand. As a photographer, they made everything very easy and stress-free allowing us to do our part without distraction and kept the day perfectly to schedule. Zeleka and team are a pleasure to be around and we will be sure to recommend them to all of our couples going forward!" -

    The Wedding Day Coordinators's reply:

    Thank you, Zaki, We have to admit you are the first photographer to ever give us a timeline of your day and we thoroughly enjoyed working with you and your entire team. We have already passed your details on to another couple and we look forward to working alongside you again in June x

    Thank you so much

    My husband and I decided we would do venue hire and bring in all our own suppliers- how hard can it be we thought!!! Before meeting Zeleka we hadn’t even contemplated a wedding coordinator for our day, however, after what I thought was going to be a ten-minute conversation that turned into an hour it was clear we needed 'The Wedding Day Coordinators'. From the first moment speaking to her, Zeleka, was friendly, helpful and informative at no point did I feel she was being pushy and making me feel like we had to book her. Her knowledge is amazing and her passion is second to none. After my initial phone call with Zeleka I had to convince my husband it was a good idea, at first he was sceptical but I arranged for Zeleka to come to our house and by the time she left he was in agreement we needed her. From the moment of booking TWC, it was like having a group of close friends to lean on and made the whole wedding process so much less stressful. Zeleka took over all the paperwork and insurance side of things - which when you do venue hire there is a lot of this. On the day it’s self Zeleka and her team was an absolute godsend myself and my husband both agree the day would have been a disaster had it not been for Zeleka. If I could go back and do it again the only thing I would change would be booking Zeleka earlier in the planning process and having her support and advice earlier on. Zeleka we cannot thank you enough we had the best day ever and it was all down to you

    The Wedding Day Coordinators's reply:

    Lol thank you Katie & Aid! Your wedding was hands down one of the hardest because of all the alcohol we had to transport over a car park which practically turned into an ice skating rink by midnight and the most enjoyable because you are both ABSOLUTE legends. Adrian you will always have a special place in our hearts as the first groom to tell us he would have paid 10x more. Everyone has you to blame for our new pricing lol xxx

    A breath of fresh air

    As a working professional efficiency is really important... You have been like a rush of cool air after exiting a sauna! After planning most of my wedding I had all the pieces to a puzzle which you effortlessly brought together in a way that made my wedding day the complete picture. You enabled us to keep calm, relax and fully enjoy our wedding. Thank you so much." - Magdalena & Anthony

    An incredible team of true professionals... We're so grateful that even after finding you at the 11th hour, you managed to pull it together and realise our blissful & wonderful day. Unforgettable. From both our hearts to you... Thank you x" Angela & James Owusu

    The Wedding Day Coordinators's reply:

    Thank you, Angela & James, unsure why your showing as Amanda lol a very strange autocorrect on your end I suspect. Receiving a call from you whilst in Barcelona for another wedding was definitely a highlight. Happy we could help to restore confidence and order to your day. Was a wedding day highlight to see the looks on your faces as your celebrity guest sang to you. Hands down the best kept surprise to date xxx

    I can not put into words how much having you with us on our wedding day has meant. After organising every detail (or so I thought) you came along and helped me to get back in the seat of “bride” adding to our day in ways I never imagined possible…

    The Wedding Day Coordinators's reply:

    THANKYOU! For trusting us with your day. Officially our first wedding couple and one we shall always remember fondly. Watching your marriage blossom and your family grow has been a highlight xxx
