Services you offer
Prior to setting up the The Wedding Dolls in 2012, Joanne Scott, Founder and Owner worked as a corporate event manager with logistics being her speciality. Between 2012 and 2019 Joanne offered full and partial planning services where she planned with couples who had budgets ranging from £25,000 - £100,000. During this time she also trained 9 'Dolls' to be AMAZING wedding day managers and established Dolly on the Day - The Day Management Service aimed at all couples that are happy to plan but would like someone to be there to manage everything and everyone on the day. In 2019 we realised that even when couples want to be in control - they still need some advice and support and those couples that simply don't have the budget for a planner also need some support and advice and so we have changed our focus.The Wedding Dolls is a team of experts with a background in planning, organising and managing. We want to offer an affordable solution to ALL couples because everyone getting married needs some advice and support from an expert at some point along the way.
Do you organise gay weddings?
Absolutely, we want to help anyone getting married.

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.Sent on 22/05/2020

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.Sent on 22/05/2020
Military precision, calm and collected and professional. Can’t wait to work with them again.

We have been privileged enough to attend quite a few events organised by The Wedding Dolls and have also worked for them a number of times over the past 4 years. Joanne’s attention to detail defies belief, she is always calm, especially during stressful situations, her manner is always polite and her instructions are always clear, she brings out the best in her team and is an absolute pleasure to work for. For any prospective brideSent on 22/05/2020
