    Amazing Roarsome

    Sarah was amazing and save me from a wedding that could have gone horribly wrong. When I was let down by my venue Sarah was able to save the day from setting up the venue, making it look amazing to actually delivering an absolute cracker of a ceremony. Sarah also created a few bits that I needed for decorations. Would highly recommend for any event.

    The Bespoke Planner's reply:

    Thank you Rebecca, it was a real honour to be a part of your wedding. Who knew I would ever be called registrar Sarah for a day. Thank you for trusting me to play such a key role in your day, I will remember it forever.
