About Devine Bride

Bespoke services, flexible help, pick + mix planning!

Devine Bride is run by Laura Devine – hi!  I’m a wedding planner based in East London and run a multi award winning blog as the backbone to my website offering planning tips and advice.

My tag line is ‘pick + mix wedding planning’; couples can pick and choose which elements they need help with, and we’ll take it from there. 

I have personally planned and worked on some 170+ weddings and events to date, and I know what’s worked, what’s not, and what’s fun!  It’s a celebration after all!

From planning power hours to partial planning, help on the day to hire a bridesmaid, and everything in between! I’ve planned and styled a goth wedding in an industrial metal works warehouse but also an ex fashion editor’s pretty Chiswick marquee wedding too. I’ve planned a wedding at the Love Actually church followed by the most elegant Christmas reception, but also many a warehouse party wedding.  My speciality is difficult dry hire venues. Whatever your concept or budget, I strive to make it happen, with the best trusted suppliers on board. 

I tend to help couples who know what they want and what they are doing, who are generally quite creative and non-traditional, but just need a hand to bring their vision to life, hone in on the finer details of the planning, and make it all happen on the day.

 

For peace of mind, I am also:

-Fully insured

-Level 2 Emergency First Aid trained

-Level 2 Fire Safety & Fire Warden trained

 

Good to Know

  • I try to chat with couples on Facetime or Skype for their initial consultation, but also love meeting for drinks anywhere we can make it work around my crazy self employed weekday schedule, and around seeing my husband.
  • I love working with fun couples on bespoke weddings.
  • I only take on a few full planning and partial planning packages a year to be able to focus on them fully, and give them plenty of planning time.
  • The rest of my bookings are made up from a mixture of my pick + mix services.
  • I don’t work on commission. Ever. Working on a commission basis promotes favouritism, and my aim is always to match the right supplier to the right client – for the client’s needs and wants only.
  • I’m not a fan of traditions, hierarchy’s, or anything that doesn’t promote equality.
  • I’m also not fond of chair covers.
  • I don’t wear black at weddings as guests usually think I’m the caterer!
  • I usually wear a smart colour so I’m easily found and identifiable, by guests and staff alike, however my aim is to blend in as if I were a guest (dress code wise).
  • I hate clipboards and headsets and don’t use them at weddings!

  • "Krissun and Christina, Bethnal Green"
    This testimonial was entered by Devine Bride on 8 January 2020

    “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.”
