Adventurous. Bold. Personality-packed.
Celebrations that follow only one rule ... yours!
I help London's authentic city lovers plan their bold, rule-book free intimate, and micro wedding day.
I help plan unique, passionate, and intimate weddings and celebrations in Surrey, Croydon, and London, that make every couple feel completely at home - and it would be my pleasure to help you create the joy-filled wedding day you deserve.
Before leaping into the world of romantic and classic weddings and celebrations, I spent time working in the corporate world of selling properties and administration. From 2014 I enjoyed working all types of customer-facing roles. It seriously was “no two days were the same”.
Then I realised, I was really good at helping others achieve their goals in any format: purchasing their dream home, filling out legal paperwork, bespoking the process for each client I came across. It really felt like I was in the right career!

My services are bespoke to each couple but I work on a flat fee basis. It is all dependent on guest numbers, dates, and what you require from me.

A micro wedding that has nothing to envy to a large one
Where to start and why there is only 5 stars when Akilah deserves all of them!
I reached out to Akilah for her expertise in microweddings and with the challenge to have it done in less than a month, in a COVID-19 situation. It has been the best decision of my life! During this crazy pre-wedding month Akilah was available, responsive, listening, advising, and patient. She has the best network of suppliers and is very organised. I could have never imagined that all my pinterest boards could come to life one day in an even better version. I trusted Akilah and asked her to surprise me with the decor and my Hubby and I were speachless - out of words for the extraordinary decor she co-ordinated. Every detail was perfect.
Having Akilah with us saved us time and headaches, but we also had a great time talking to her and the results were beyond expectations. I now miss talking to her everyday and can't wait to work with her on future events!
Akilah THANK YOU for making our wedding day one to remember forever for us and our guests.

Our wedding was in August 2019 with a guest list of 500 people so you can understand the stress we were going through trying to organise everything. Luckily we were fortunate to meet Akilah and what a blessing she was!!Sent on 15/06/2020
Akilah was more than helpful with the planning of the wedding. Communication was never an issue and she was always available. She came to the venue, helped discuss food and travel arrangements and nothing was ever too tedious!
We met up several times to go over things and we were always in control- the wedding still was the way we wanted it with Akilah’s touch.
The days coming to the wedding were stress free as Akilah handled the majority of things. Her level of professionalism was exceptional! My friends and family loved her presence and she became more of a friend than just an events planner.
Akilah was truly a pleasure to have around and I will definitely be using her services again in the near future!
Lots of love,
The Manful’s ??

Gavin and I felt so relaxed and didn't even think about what was happening behind the scenes on the day, as everything was seamless with your on the day management.Sent on 15/06/2020
From the moment you stepped in to help tie together loose ends, from booking new vendors for us (florist, hair & mua) to creating and posting our invites, we knew it was going to be a beautiful day. You created a plan and liaised with our venue coordinator and church from 1 week before you had everything under control and out of our arms.
You were so assertive but super approachable if I had anything I needed you to do - you even created our wedding program and put together our favours whilst I was busy at work. All I had to do was get them printed and put together. Thank you so much.
If you weren't on our case, I wouldn't have achieved the day I wished for.
