    The Wedding Dolls

    We booked the Wedding Dolls to help us plan our wedding at The Cherry Barn in Rye on the 29th October 2021. As a dry hire venue, I was a bit concerned that I'd miss something important during the planning process and it was great to have a detailed discussion about how the day would work, and what we needed to do. They were very detailed and organised and it really helped us to bring everything together.  We also opted to for them to help us set up the day before, clear up the day after and we had two dollies on the day to keep things running smoothly.  Having them there meant we could enjoy the day without having to worry about the logistics of it all.  They liaised directly with our suppliers, moved furniture around and helped dress the venue and then on the day they were there to make sure everything ran according to plan.  When we arrived back at the venue the day after the wedding, they had cleared everything away meaning that we didn't need to get involved with venue cleaning on our first day of marriage after the wedding.  We loved working with Joanne, Emma and Charlotte and having them be part of our big day.  They were friendly, organised and so helpful.  I would recommend them to anyone who wants a virtually stress-free and enjoyable wedding planning experience.  Thank you Wedding Dolls!!

    Best decision we made for our wedding

    We had a dry hire wedding venue in Kent and as the date drew near both my partner and I were feeling incredibly anxious on how we would be able to pull off the day, manage suppliers and have everything running smoothly as well as enjoying the day! Luckily I found Joanne and the wedding dolls, whom we hired as dolls on the day, although they went above and beyond in the lead up to the wedding. From our first conversation Joanne eased my worries about the day. She is incredible at what she does, she was easy to contact and always offered the best advice and asked us questions that we had not even thought of. But most importantly she kept us assured that there was nothing to worry about and that it would all be fine.

    On the wedding day, if something did go wrong- I did not notice it. Joanne and the Dolls were incredible and went above and beyond to care for two elderly relatives of mine and made our guests feel so welcome.

    Hiring the dolls was honestly the best decision I made for this wedding- without them it would not have been the wonderful day that we ended up having. If you need an on the day event co-ordinator, they are the best.

    Thank you so much for everything!

    My wedding wouldn’t have been a success without The Wedding Dolls!

    My wedding day wouldn’t have been a success without The Wedding Dolls. Having them there meant I didn’t have to think about a single thing or ever need to know the time on the day!

    Not only that but they were extremely helpful leading up to the day by planning a full agenda, to 15 minute breakdowns, with their actions as well as actions for others. They were so organised and always brought their experience and recommendations to the table, thinking of so much more than I ever knew.

    I will forever be grateful for them and will never stop recommending them!

    A must-have!

    The Wedding Dolls are an absolute must-have at a wedding. I don't even know where to begin. Every supplier recommended in the run up to the wedding was fantastic. All the help with the small details in the planning really made our day so much more special - Joanne's experience made such a huge difference, given planning a wedding is a mostly a first time experience, its so helpful to have someone who really knows what works and what doesn't! And then having the Dolly on the day meant that everything we wanted to happen on the day actually happened - and we didn't have to lift a finger. Thank you so much Wedding Dolls for everything!

    Supplier Testimonial - Kay Young Photography

    I have now been involved in numerous weddings with Joanne from The Wedding Dolls and every single one has run like clockwork. Joanne’s planning and organisation skills are brilliant. They are also very calm which is such an important trait especially on a busy and sometimes stressful day. Joanne is also very hands on during the day, she deals with any dramas quietly that may occur and constantly checks on the bride and groom to ensure they are relaxed and enjoying their big day. I hope to have many more weddings in my diary where The Wedding Dolls are on the team.

    Supplier Testimonial - Hall of Cakes

    We have worked with lots of wedding planners but I can honestly say none such as calm and collected as The Wedding Dolls. I can imagine that co-ordinating a wedding of 300 guests is no easy task and if Joanne was stressed on the inside, she certainly did not let it show on the outside.
    Military precision, calm and collected and professional. Can’t wait to work with them again.

    DIY wedding, St Patricks Barn, Sussex

    A massive thank you for all you did for us on the lead up and on the day. I don't know what we would have done without you. You helped us through the issue we had with the venue with such determination. You really helped my vision come to life. Without you it would not have been so magical.

    I could not believe the amount of work you put in before and on the day, you really are just wonderful.

    With Love Naomi and Ali x

    Summer wedding at Buxted Park Hotel

    Thank you for being the most amazing wedding day manager. I knew you was going to be a great help on the day but you did so much more than we ever expected. You went the extra mile for us, and we really appreciated everything you did. Our day would not have been as amazing as it was if it wasn't for you. We are eternally grateful.

    Lots of Love Jodie and Shane.

    Summer wedding at Hever Castle

    As the Mother of the Bride and chief wedding organiser I became increasingly worried as the big day approached that we had so many suppliers who would need direction and monitoring on the Big Day. At the same time my only daughter also needed my undivided attention on her wedding day along with 125 guests! I found the Wedding Dolls on the internet and was immediately attracted to their “Dolly for the Day” service. After speaking with Joanne Scott of Wedding Dolls I was convinced that she had the experience and ability to be my eyes, ears and legs for the day! In addition I tasked her with finding my final four suppliers; which she did brilliantly!

    In every way I couldn’t have been happier with the service Joanne gave us. Her attention to detail was superb and all the suppliers complimented me on the way she had worked with them; including our venue - Hever Castle.

    Joanne was in charge but in a gracious way that didn’t offend or tread on anyone’s toes. She also worked tirelessly from early afternoon to gone midnight to ensure everything ran smoothly. Both my daughter and I agreed afterwards that we couldn’t have managed without Joanne.
    As a professional woman I appreciate hard work and professionalism and we got that and more from Joanne; I cannot recommend the Wedding Dolls more highly then I do and my only regret is that I didn’t involve them earlier in the wedding planning.

    Thank you Joanne from not just my husband and I but also the stars of our show the Bride & Groom – Jemima & Daniel”

    Marquee at home, Kent

    “We would just like to say a big thank you for making our wedding day run so smoothly. From the moment you took over the reins of planning our day we felt so much calmer.

    You made sure that all the suppliers knew what they needed to do and when, you came up with so many things that had never even entered our minds, you organised the invitations, which saved us lots of time and stress and designed the marquee layout to perfection, then the suppliers you recommended were absolutely fantastic.

    On the big day, what can we say, from keeping Michele relaxed in the morning to keeping the whole day running faultlessly with gentle prompting to keep things all running to time, what a talent you have, we would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone.
    We wanted our day to be hassle free and the Wedding Dolls made this happen giving us the chance to relax and enjoy what turned out to be the best day of our lives. Thanks again, we couldn't have done it without you”.

    Summer celebration at Swallows Last, East Sussex

    “From our first phone call we knew you were the lady for us. We had such big ideas but no idea how to bring them to life, your knowledge and advice helped us to enjoy the whole planning process when we thought we would just be stressed and overwhelmed. When we told you about our specific ideas you knew how to make them work and how to make the day flow, not only did the day look amazing but your invaluable advice helped us to create a personal feeling so that all of our guests felt welcome and relaxed.

    Nothing was too much trouble for you over the 11 months that we were planning and then on the day you were just amazing. We knew we were in the safe hands of you and your team of wonderful suppliers. You worked so hard to make it the perfect day and we will always be grateful for that”.

    Clare and Dan, Swallows Oast
