Providing couples with inspiration, imagination, confidence and attention to detail, is what award-winning wedding planner, Sue White does best. Dubbed as one of Yorkshire’s leading event planners, Sue has a wealth of experience planning events in both the UK and America. Sue takes time out of her busy schedule to tell us about the spectacular wedding she designed for Marcus and Rachael.
“Since Marcus was working abroad in the RAF and Rachael juggled a busy life with her passion for horses, they found pulling everything together was stressful and time consuming.
“They had lots of fantastic ideas on how they wanted to make their day truly unique and personal, but needed help and guidance of an expert to co-ordinate everything and everyone involved.”
“The couple had chosen Duncombe Park as their venue with a drinks reception and dinner in the Grand Hall followed by an evening party in the Secret Garden. Moving guests from A to B, as well as suppliers working in two locations is no easy task but one I master every time.”
“I worked with Rachael and Marcus to ensure that everything happened on a detailed running order. I contacted the suppliers to check set up times and delivery, I went over wet weather plans, supplier’s arrival times and made sure all the personal touches came to fruition.”
“Rachael and Marcus wanted lots of entertainment for their guests. Marcus and his dad even built a cocktail bar in the marquee, complete with Victorian fire, sofas, lampshades and cocktails in China cups.
“To ensure the couple had a stress-free day, I used a handful of select suppliers to organise and achieve exactly what they wanted.”
“Using a wedding planner gave Rachael and Marcus peace of mind that everything was under control and ran to time (which is a key element in a military wedding!)”
