Laura is amazing!

If you are unsure about whether to hire an on the day coordinator, hire one now and make sure it is Laura!

Laura helped us in the month leading up to our wedding and so much more. She helped us make decisions that saved us money in other areas of the wedding planning. One of our suppliers dropped out the day before the wedding and she was absolutely essential in helping us to resolve this - without her help I am not sure what we would of done!

With Laura's help, you can relax and enjoy the day without worrying while she runs everything seamlessly. Even making sure we had a drink whenever we wanted one, realising there was a road diversion which would affect our bus route and fixing it before we had even realised, giving us a heads up before our speeches so we could get ready: she thought of everything. Everyone at the wedding raved about how much help she was: so many people reached out to us afterwards / during and said they needed Laura for their own wedding!

Laura is a calming and incredibly friendly presence: we were delighted to have her as part of our day. She was so understanding and would do everything to help with everything that we presented her with. We are DELIGHTED that we hired Laura, and would 100% recommend everyone to use her. She is amazing! xx

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.

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....

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.
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”

“Laura has great enthusiasm and organisational skills, and was an invaluable source of assistance for our wedding. She contributes good ideas and adapts to the client’s needs, and is very responsive. If you want someone that is as excited as you are about your wedding, and is eager to help you realise your vision, then I recommend Laura as a calm, practical planner who is easy to deal with, hard-working and, above all, a lovely person.”

“Francis and I would like to thank you for being instrumental in making our day truly unforgettable. After combing through the internet, I am glad I stumbled across Devine Bride and you were able to deliver to exactly what we needed on the day…..help! You did not disappoint us at all, from our first conversation you instilled a trust and positivity in me which allowed us to completely let go and focus on the other elements of our wedding. The regular contact every other day with some form of an update or reminder kept us on our toes and the day itself was so stress-free and seamless we could just enjoy our day.

The first time we saw the finished product we were just so overwhelmed with happiness – it was the small touches that counted such as bringing out a glass of bubbly to our white taxi or ordering the caterers to bring canapes to us whilst we waited for our guests to be seated. I cannot recommend you highly enough, you truly made my day.”

“Laura is excellent, I can highly recommend Devine Bride. Laura and her team made our day completely stress free and a reality. The venue was ‘raw’ so she had to do everything! It was awesome. Thank you Laura”

“Laura was amazing, we took on a dry hire venue and hadn’t quite appreciated how much work was involved, Laura was recommended to us to manage the day, and I soon as I met her, I knew we were in safe hands. She was not only brilliant on the day, she did so much in the running up to, she is worth every penny. Our party really couldn’t have been better, everything ran like clock work and this was definitely down to Laura, an absolute pleasure to work with, I highly recommend her!“

“Laura supported us as on the day wedding co-ordinator for our recent London wedding. Despite hiring Laura as an ‘on the day co-ordinator’, she went over and above in the months leading up to the wedding, helping us to co-ordinate timing, suppliers and deliveries.
On the day, Laura was exceptional. Our day was split into three venues and Laura managed absolutely everything for us, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. From playing our ceremony music and organising the crucial confetti photo, to making sure we stuck to timings and decorating our evening venue perfectly. Laura is hard-working, super friendly and 100% cares about the couple and success of the day, with lots of personal touches along the way. I absolutely cannot recommend Laura highly enough!”

“Of all the things and services we spent money on for our wedding there was one stand out that was worth her weight in gold! Laura was our wedding angel sent from a Google search!

I knew I wanted to do most of the planning for our wedding myself but as we got further and further into the process I realised that I couldn’t do it all and be a bride who enjoyed her day. We asked Laura to work with us as our on the day coordinator. From the moment I had my first call with Laura I felt more at ease and confident in the planning process. From saying just a few words she knew exactly what we were looking to achieve on our day and was able to advise us on how we could do this.

As we got nearer to the day Laura became more and more invaluable. We were doing things a little differently and getting married in Australia 2 weeks before our wedding in London, Laura completely got this and stepped up so that as we flew out to the other side of the world we could relax knowing that she would be the perfect point of contact for all our suppliers as the big day got nearer. She put together a Wedding Day Brief that got everyone singing from the same hymn sheet and tirelessly chased up the pesky supplier who’s contact wasn’t so reliable!

Then it was time for the big day, Laura arrived at the venue and did all the set up, making the venue look absolutely stunning and turning the pub courtyard into our beautiful magic wedding chapel! She had everyone under control, even the groomsmen! After the ceremony, I swear it was as if she multiplied, she was everywhere. Seemlessly organising a perfect exit from the ceremony through a bubble walk, ensuring that all the wedding party had drinks before the photos started. She effortlessly took care of the guests inside enjoying drinking whilst also nudging me to hold my shoulders back so I looked better for the photos! She was magic!

Throughout the whole day she would appear and whisper in mine and my husband’s ear “we’re going to do this part in about 5 minutes” so that I could finish a conversation or my drink and get to the right place on time. Your wedding day is hectic and there is so much going on that you have to be involved in but it’s hard to focus when all your favourite people are in one place. Laura made it so that we didn’t have to focus, she enabled us to just enjoy it. I was a guest at my own wedding and it was 100% because of Laura!

I implore anyone to seek Laura’s help with their day! I promise you she will make the entire experience everything you could possible dream of! Thank you Laura – Wedding Angel”

“I came across Devine Bride on Instagram, having followed Laura for some time, I contacted her via the website to book a planning ‘power hour’. I had booked the main things for my wedding but was feeling stuck about what I needed to do next. As soon as I met Laura she was personable and friendly and offered some great advice and provided me with the most helpful planning document to kick start the rest of my wedding prep. She made me feel at ease and made sense of what I wanted for our special day. I’d highly recommend her services for anyone who needs expert advice from Laura.”

“Where can we even start in thanking Laura and the team at Devine Bride. Laura kept us calm from engagement until the big day; she was always at the end of an email to answer our questions and kept impressing us with her wedding wisdom and ideas. She made an extremely tight turn around, due to our venue timings, doable and easy and we can honestly say we wouldn’t have been able to have as good a day without her. She sourced our invite designer and went above and beyond with ideas, thoughts, and endless inspiration. Would recommend to any couple – Laura is the wedding saviour you need on your big day.”

“Laura is INCREDIBLE. Her advice, service, enthusiasm, ideas, personality and passion are golden, and her flair and skill at organisation is second to none. Laura made our day a complete dream, and she’s the loveliest person to work with. I’d unreservedly recommend her to anyone getting married, or having a big event of any kind, she’s completely fantastic.”

“Laura was a lifesaver for me during our wedding – we had our reception in our back garden with a yurt, which was always going to be extra stressful than in a hotel/venue. She helped us set up the day and even made a beautiful eucalyptus arch for our yurt entrance the day before. On the day, everything was handled perfectly by Laura – we can’t believe how wonderful Laura and her assistant were on the day. The whole event ran so smoothly, we were left to enjoy our wedding – our families as well, who weren’t having to organise and manage behind-the-scenes. Laura also gave us some brilliant tips and ideas. I’d recommend her entirely for any event!”

“Laura is simply amazing. We took her on to help us with a few ideas in the planning stages of our wedding and then as our coordinator for the day itself. Throughout the entire process she was such a fantastic help, answering all our questions, giving us valuable advice about anything we asked for, being so generous with her time – visiting the venue with us, and generally making us feel at ease during what can be a very stressful period. On the day itself, she was an absolute star and went above and beyond to ensure that everything ran like clockwork. We cannot recommend her enough to anyone planning their big day. She really knows her stuff and is a great person to work with. Thank you so much!”
