Can’t thank Laura enough

Laura is an incredibly talented lady, who will go literally above and beyond for anyone. She showed kindness, warmth, professionalism, humour and perfected our wedding. I literally could never have imagined it being so easy, but that’s because Laura was behind the scenes sorting every single thing for us. Thank you Laura, I’m eternally grateful. You’re an amazing person and you’ve given us the most magical wedding ever.

Thank you Laura

If you’re lucky enough to have Laura part of your wedding day you’re in very good hands.
Despite being a weekend wedding with lots of guests and moving parts organising it felt so simple and stress free. On the day, Laura was just fabulous in all the situations we put her through; unwavering to last moment singing requests and her logical approach and calmness solved our misplacing of rings. She kept the entire weekend running smoothly and I’ll forever be grateful to her for keeping me (the bride) stress free.

Best decision we made for our wedding, we had a blissfully stress free day

We hired Laura as a day of coordinator for our wedding and it was the best decision we made about our wedding day.

We had a video call with Laura and a couple of other day of coordinators before we made a booking. She answered all of our many questions, patiently and professionally. Laura by far gave us the most confidence of all the people we spoke to and that confidence was not misplaced.

She didn't just turn up on our wedding day and do the tasks we asked of her. She helped us make sure we had all the prep done, so that we could execute our perfect wedding on the day. We both felt she really went the extra mile.

She even helped us secure one of our most important vendors (florist) at the last minute when we were struggling to do it ourselves. This vendor also went on to exceed our expectations. I was so in love with our flowers, they bought me so much joy. That wouldn't have happened without Laura's help.

I think if we were to go through the process again knowing what we know now, we would have hired Laura as a full wedding planner. She is absolutely worth the investment.

Laura made sure everything ran smoothly and to plan. Our wedding was very personalized and she was able to execute our vision better than we ever could have. She listened to what we wanted, even the nonstandard things and helped us do that.

We had a blissful, stress-free wedding, which is exactly what my husband wanted from the outset and at the time he did not think would be possible.

If you're wondering if a day of coordinator or planner is worth it, Laura absolutely is. This is your sign to give her a call. We can't recommend her highly enough.

Smooth, Reliable and Dependable

We didn't know how much we needed a wedding coordinator until we signed up with Laura. She has been a massive help since the beginning and our wedding day ran smoothly because of her. Looking back, we think a lot of the things could have gone wrong or forgotten if Laura wasn't present. Knowing that we can rely on Laura a few weeks before the wedding and on the day itself has up our minds at ease and allowed us to just be in the moment and celebrate the day with the people we care about and love the most. Thanks for your hard work Laura.

The BEST wedding planner!

Laura is just amazing! From start to finish she was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is so professional, super organised and above all so friendly and easy to talk to. She helped us with every detail of our wedding (including many we would never have thought of!) and was able to accommodate some of our more unusual requests! Our regular planning meetings were so helpful to keep us on track, even when we were not always in the same country! She was there throughout the weekend making sure everything went smoothly and our guests commented on how helpful she was. We absolutely could not have done it without her and she made our wedding weekend unforgettable. Thank you so much, Lindsay & John xx

Great advice!

We've had two consultations with Laura so far. Laura has been flexible fitting us in around our busy schedules. She has thought of things that we hadn't even considered. It's been so helpful to have someone who knows everything we need to think about, can work out a timeline for the day, and set us realistic goals so that it's not been overwhelming but enjoyable to plan. Laura is also a very good mediator when we can't make a decision! Thank you Laura and we can't wait for you to be there on our day with your meticulous planning skills.

Fantastic wedding planner

My partner and I had a video call with Laura to talk through our abroad wedding and she was fantastic! I was really anxious and stressed about the wedding before our call. Laura went through the day, pre and post wedding celebrations in thorough detail. I couldnt recommended her services enough. There were so many details I hadn't considered until we spoke. If you are looking for advice on your wedding then you 100% need to contact her. If we were getting married in the UK I would have loved her to help plan our wedding. Thank you very much

Amazing knowledge and helpfulness

Laura was amazing with helping us plan our wedding! She has so much knowledge and no question is too small or silly. She was able to provide us with tips and supplier questions that we would never have thought to ask which helped us massively! We ended up using serveral suppliers she recommended and they were incredible.
If you are looking for a wedding planner I would definitely recommend Laura!

Top-notch event planning.

Laura played a pivotal role in making our 3-day Civil Partnership celebration at Huntsham Court an absolute success!
From the very start, Laura showcased a remarkable combination of thoughtfulness, diligence, and superb organizational skills. She walked us through a detailed event plan, ensuring we navigated potential challenges smoothly. Our entire event unfolded seamlessly, leaving our guests with nothing but positive memories.
The collaboration among our individual suppliers and hired staff was a testament to Laura's behind-the-scenes coordination. This was particularly valuable for us as first-time event organizers. Laura's professionalism shone through every step of the way, and her ability to manage and align all teams was truly commendable.
Laura maintained a perfect balance of professionalism and approachability. Even in the face of last-minute requests, she handled everything with grace and a smile. Working with Laura was not just a business transaction; it felt like a partnership. Entrusting your event to her oversight ensures a level of care and expertise that goes beyond the standard. Highly recommend her for a top-notch event planning experience!

Amazing, amazing, AMAZING!

If you’re reading this, I presume you’re on a quest to find a wedding planner. Let me tell you - do just stop right now and go check Laura Dalton/Kept Weddings' availability, immediately.

Because all that matters right now to you and your wedding is whether she’s free.

If she’s free…you are entirely, ENTIRELY sorted.

Your wedding WILL be AMAZING.

Because, believe me, you have found THE WEDDING PLANNER BEYOND PERFECTION!

4-5 months before our wedding, I was freaking out. Not sleeping. We had chosen a venue we loved but was a DIY venue which involved a LOT of organization. Both my fiancé and myself work long hours full-time and live the other end of the country, and we were a bit naive about how much work the wedding planning would involve. I was a massively stressed, unhappy and overwhelmed bride, which just isn’t the way you want to be in the lead-up to one of the most special times of your life. My therapist suggested a wedding planner, and to ask one of our existing suppliers we had on board to recommend one. Through some kind of blessed miracle he recommended Laura, and then when I made contact, it turned out she was free!

I hadn’t fully realised at the time how much this moment entirely turned things round for us and actually lead to the creation of what our all wedding guests have declared THE BEST WEDDING THEY’VE EVER BEEN TO.

From the very first Zoom session with Laura, within moments, I completely knew that we had struck gold. Laura radiated calm, warmth, efficiency and meticulousness. She quickly identified everything that needed to be done and through spreadsheet wizardry and weekly Zoom sessions, everything incrementally slotted into place. We can’t thank Laura enough for her amazing support through what is inevitably a very stressful time - she gave us gentle pushes when we needed gentle pushes and through the planning process really took so much of the pressure off our shoulders. I have so much respect for Laura’s patience and her dedication to her work - the level of intensity, energy, multiple-plate-spinning and attention to detail that goes into being a wedding planner is truly mind-boggling.

A truly special thing about Laura, beyond her incredible efficiency and skills, is how she brings her heart and soul to each of her weddings. By the time it got to the week of our wedding, it really struck my fiancé and I how Laura had become like a really great friend of ours, always with our best interests at heart at every turn, in such an authentic way. Our guests loved her and on the day itself she was incredible. Her calm and graceful way of choreographing everything to perfection had a huge role in making our wedding the very magical day that it was.

Laura is simply a DIAMOND. Do your future self (and your wedding guests) the most enormous favour and book her now. You will see!

Fabulously accommodating

Laura was fantastic before, during and after our consultation. She provides a wonderful service and is aware of wanting to give you the most she can with her time. Laura took into account our viewpoint and suggestions and provided options for us whilst staying realistic to our budget.

Couldn't ask for a nicer planner. Thanks so much Laura.
