I had no idea how useful a moodboard would be until I spoke to Laura at Devine Bride. There are so many different wedding ideas out there and I was becoming a bit overwhelmed! I’m not creative at all and was struggling to see how it would all go together.Sent on 20/07/2020
I sent Laura some ideas and then we had our phone call. I felt like I threw so many different things at her I didn’t know what to expect at the end. But she must have known exactly the right questions to ask because when our moodboards arrived….that was it-that was what we wanted our wedding to be like! It’s probably the first thing my fiancé and I have agreed on straight away!
Laura was so friendly and approachable & has given us some amazing ideas. I feel like we now have something to work with and have a plan to work towards. Thank you so much!

Wow wow wow! Where do we start with how fabulous Laura is....Sent on 28/04/2020
We decided to make our Wedding Day extra special and book it for New Years Eve! It sounded like a dream initially but we didn’t realise how much effort and stress was involved in planning a wedding, in a dry hire venue... on NYE. Overwhelmed and in need of some serious help...
In comes the wonderfully talented Laura Devine and after having just a one hour planning meeting with her we felt like our wedding had all of sudden fallen into place. Laura followed up with an incredible wedding schedule, detailing every inch of our wedding (everything we had overlooked), she had contacted each of the suppliers to arrange their timings and agreed to set up the day for us. The meeting left us so excited for our big day and watching Laura bring all of our ideas together.
Roll on the big day... with a week to spare we realised we’d made a huge oversight on our part and hadn’t arranged for anyone to ‘take down’ at the end of the wedding (something most dry hire venues request). We needed to find someone in the industry, a week before our wedding, willing to stay until 5am- New Years Day! Panic struck we immediately turned to Laura and to our amazement she immediately cancelled her own NYE plans in order to take down our wedding! We were elated!!!!
On the day... we honestly couldn’t have done it without Laura. She was a one woman power force, setting up all suppliers, organising 150 overexcited guests, running around with what seemed like a Mary Poppins pocket with endless essentials that we’d not even thought about... (Wedding Cake knife!). Throughout the day we had so many of our guests tell us how wonderful she was and we couldn’t agree more...
Laura you are fantastic and THANK YOU so much for making our day run so smoothly, bringing all of our ideas together and most importantly given our guests a fantastic party!!! You truly are insanely good at what you do and we couldn’t recommend you highly enough.

“Laura was absolutely superb as our on-the-day wedding co-ordinator. We cannot recommend Devine Bride highly enough.Sent on 08/01/2020
We had very particular ideas when organising our wedding (250 guests, dry hire venue, Greek BBQ, mobile bar, furniture hire, tropical plants instead of flowers, a DJ, an acoustic band, a piano man etc etc etc) and to compound the logistical quagmire further, the venue needed to be completely cleared within an hour of the guests leaving.
At our initial meeting, Laura listened attentively, provided encouragement, ideas and recommendations as necessary. We walked away from that meeting comforted and sure that we had found the right person for the job. As the months went by, we continued to use Laura as a sounding board for new ideas and solutions for challenges. She really knows what she is doing and made us constantly feel at ease and reassured.
The day before the wedding (at very short notice), Laura masterfully co-ordinated with all our suppliers and also helped a small team of friends and family decorate the venue. On the day, Laura was completely in charge of the show, she liaised with all the suppliers, co-ordinated separate interviews with the registrars (so bride/groom didn’t see each other before the ceremony), kept everything running to schedule and even guided us through the happy chaos of the evening. She made sure we had fun – had some food and always had a full glass of champagne and sensing our nervousness, she gave us both a small pep talk before our speeches. Multitasking talented Laura also set up our cheese table beautifully!
We felt hugely supported by Laura who was able to communicate our ideas very clearly to execute our vision. The wedding was a smoothly run success. We have a million happy memories of the day. Thank you again.
Lots of love
Christina & Krissun”
