Jo was our wedding planner and was a lifesaver. Organising a wedding in another country to your own, especially a country you don’t speak the language in, was a very daunting task for us. Jo was very warm and accommodating right from the beginning. We felt confident that our expectations would be met. We were quite particular at times and Jo took it all in her stride. We felt our needs were meet and the passed our expectations. I didn’t want it to end and would do it all over again. We plan to hire it out again in a few years’ time to try and relive some of the fantastic memories the weekend created.

People say that you’re wedding day is the best day of your life, and now thanks to jo and her team we can confirm that this is indeed true! Our wedding was ten months in the making and at first we were very concerned about how we were to plan our perfect day in France from our home in the UK. We needn’t have worried as jo in our opinion is nothing short of superwoman personified! Jo did everything for us going above and beyond all our expectations. In the planning jo gave us plenty of choices and options on everything from DJs and flowers too menu and drinks it was all taken care of for us! We gave jo our budget and she not only did what we wanted but went out of her way to get the best deal saving us money on things that were less important to us so we could spend more on the things that were. We cannot recommend jo and her team enough EVERYTHING was just perfect Thanks jo Ps don’t forget to tune into the new series of Gogglebox in September I’ll hopefully get a shoutout for ya xx Love Stephen and Daniel Lustig webb

Joanne and all your amazing team. I cannot put into words how wonderful the wedding has been – its honestly been like a fairytale. Thank you for all your hard work- even down to the little details which have not gone unnoticed. Our wedding is something we will never forget and you helped create our lifetime memories for our family and friends – thank you again.

Thank you for making our wedding the best weekend ever, We have all had an amazing time and thank you for calming down the groomzillas! Jo did an amazing job making sure we had a perfect wedding day. We had full trust in Jo during the entire process. She has world class suppliers and went above and beyond when it came to the small details.. She always had a smile on her face and nothing was ever too much trouble, we never worried about a thing as we knew it was all in hand.

Hiring Jo as our planner was the best decision we made when we started the process. It was important to us to have the wedding of our dreams whilst sticking to our budget, and Jo not only helped us achieve this, but delivered the wedding beyond our dreams! Jo was always positive with a happy disposition and she is completely unflappable.

We have had the BEST weekend – everything worked out well including the weather and honestly could not have been better. The flowers looked wonderful, the food was delicious, the setting and scenery was incredible and you managed to take away all the stress on the day- thank you so much! We will remember this weekend for years and years to come. Thank you Jo
