"Thank you so much for all your hard work leading up to the wedding day. We had the most amazing day, everything was perfect!."

Tom and Alex Goode, Scarboroughl, North Yorkshire, 2016


"We would highly recommend the Chic Wedding Company. From start to finish, the service was excellent and professional. Wendy was very knowledgeable and supportive in the months leading up to the wedding, and kept in regular contact. Wendy and Ray’s help setting up the Reception Venue and coordinating our suppliers on the day was fantastic – we couldn’t have done it without them. Ray was great as Master of Ceremonies and Wendy ensured everything ran smoothly for the entire day and evening. Both we and our guests had an amazing, unforgettable day thanks to the Chic Wedding Company."

Claire Stapleton  (Bride), Ingleby Barwick and Worsall, North Yorkshire, 2016.

Tom and Alex
St Mary's Church, Cloughton & Ox Pasture Hall, Scarborough
2016

 

Tom - our lovely Bridegroom was the one who contacted me at about the 8 month point before his and his fiancee Alex's wedding day as he was looking for some help to oversee their wedding day by way of our 'On-the-Day' Wedding Service. 

He was hoping that we, at The Chic Wedding Company could help make their wonderful vision for their special day go exactly as they wished for.  At this point in the proceedings, they had more-or-less made their wedding arrangements and had secured their wedding suppliers - having paid deposits and some interim payments.   So, of course, we arranged an initial consultation over a lovely cup of cofee of course!  We agreed to meet up at a mutually convenient place - which was half way between where they lived in West Yorkshire and their place of marriage on the Yorkshire Coast to discuss all their wedding plans that they had organised so far and, together, we looked at what we could do to ensure everything was to go according to their exact wishes.

They had already secured the church for the ceremony - St Mary's in Cloughton - and booked their favourite venue - Ox Pasture Hall hotel - which are both on the edge of  Scarborough. A few weeks after, once Tom and Alex had engaged our services, we met up with them at their venue and had a lovely 'show-round' of the beautiful hotel, rooms, and function suite (The Dovecote Suite). This was where the Wedding Breakfast and Evening Reception was to take place.  We were invited to look at the area and envisage how the room would be dressed, and how it would work on the day.  The Dovecote Suite, which is pretty much a 'blank canvas' in respect of having pale neutral walls, dark beams and trims, with access to the stunning gardens and country estate in which to create their chosen country garden theme with lots of matching bunting and twinkly fairy lights adorning the beams creating a very romantic feel. 

For the following months, Tom and Alex worked with
The Chic Wedding Company Wedding- to make their wedding day the perfect day they had hoped for!  

Over the following 6 months we had another wedding planning meeting, where we followed up on how the plans were progressing and where, with our Wedding Planning Magic we could decide what was done and still left to do.

Tom and Alex wanted us to make the wedding weekend extra special for all of their family and friends, and manage everything so that everyone could enjoy every moment of the celebrations, and
wanted someone who could take charge of the setting up of their chosen venue and assist the 'on-site' staff, and manage the various Wedding Suppliers to ensure the smooth running of the events from start to finish. So, from the Friday - for the venue and church setting-up, wedding ceremony rehearsal at the church - through the wedding day itself and the Sunday tidy-up we basically ensured the smooth running of every little detail from start to finish!

All of us kept in regular contact, especially over the last 3 months, to keep everything on track and to check that all interim payments and final balances were paid on time, that the guest list, accommodation arrangements were finalised, seating plans created, guest and bridal party transport and pick-ups organised with absolutley nothing being left to chance.  Then, at the 6 week point before their special day, I took over and liaised with everybody involved in whatever capacity, ensured that all licenses and insurances were up-to-date and issued to the relevant places/people and agreed the finer details and specific timings for the whole weekend which is what our 'On-the-Day' service consists of!

I'm very pleased to say, that although the unpredictable late spring weather spoiled itself on the day, with many spells of heavy rain showers, we worked around when the sun finally came out in between, we still had a simply perfect day! It has to be said, that the weather is the only thing that we at
The Chic Wedding Company can't control! Haha!

Many, many congratulations to Tom and Alex - the new Mr & Mrs Goode - and we at The Chic Wedding Company wish you a very, very happy and love-filled life together!

Claire and Matthew
St Terese of Lisieux church, Ingleby Barwick & Worsall Village Hall
2016

 

Claire - our lovely Bride called me at about the 6 month point before her and her fiance Matthew's wedding day as she was looking for some help to organise their wedding day by way of our 'On-the-Day' Wedding Service.  The wedding arrangements and wedding suppliers were pretty much sorted by the time she contacted me, but with working full time and looking after their young family too, some assistance was decided was a must!  So, of course, we arranged an initial consultation (over a lovely cup of tea!) to discuss all the wedding plans to date and, together we looked at what they had already organised and what was still left to do.  They already knew what kind of wedding they wanted - a church ceremony in their newly built church (which, incidently, has only just been completed....literally a couple  of weeks or so before their big day!!).  This was to be followed by an informal, family BBQ Wedding Reception in the beautiful Worsall Village Hall, which is a blank canvas in which to create their chosen village country garden theme consisting of pale pink, ivory and pastle mint green colours.  All the main items had been booked - their venue, outside caterers, bar, transport and church but it was decided they required a little bit of The Chic Wedding Company Wedding-Planning Magic to bring everything together on the day!  

Over the following 6 months we had another couple of wedding planning meetings, where we could swap and discuss ideas as plans progressed.  The main decision was having a Wedding Planner (yours truly!) available on the day which was essential so that all of the family could enjoy the wedding celebrations without having to worry about a single thing..  Claire and Matthew needed someone who could take charge of the setting up of their chosen venue as there was no 'on-site' staff, and manage the various Wedding Suppliers and ensure the smooth running of the day's events from start to finish.

Claire and I were in regular contact, especially over the last 3 months, to keep everything on track and to check that all interim payments and final balances were paid on time, that the guest list was finalised and seating plans created, guest and bridal party transport pick-ups and accommodation was arranged, etc. with nothing being left to chance.  The, at the 6 week point before their special day, I took over and liaised with everybody involved in whatever capacity and agreed the finer details and specific timings for the whole weekend - from the Friday afternoon setting-up and wedding rehearsal to the wedding day itself, to the Sunday morning clear-up which is what our 'On-the-Day' service consists of!

I'm very pleased to say, that even the unpredictable late spring weather behaved itself on the day as we had the outside element of their celebrations - the outside barbeque, mini play area for the children and patio seating to enjoy.... and the sun came out at the right time too - so the all-important wedding umbrellas weren't  required  and the day was simply perfect! 

We even had the world-famous Red Arrows performing a fly-past over the church and the venue from a nearby Air Show - although I like to think that this was yet another successful part of my Wedding Planning that I had personally arranged for the happy couple which made the day beautifully unique!  Haha!!

It was my absolute pleasure to help out, and I loved every minute ensuring that they had the day they had dreamed of and having many of Claire and Matthew's family and friends commenting on the great time they had all enjoyed, of course, makes me feel incredibly proud to be given the opportunity to be a part of one of their most precious days of their lives.

Many congratulations to Claire and Matthew and we at The Chic Wedding Company wish you and your lovely children a very, very happy and love-filled life together!

 

"Wendy & Ray went above and beyond our expectations. From start to finish, the service was superb and very professional."

Kath and Louis
Crathorne Hall, North Yorkshire
2014

 

Kath, our lovely Bride called me at the beginning of December – a mere 3 months before her and her Fiancé’s wedding day.  They had recently become engaged, and as the Bridegroom was about to celebrate a significant birthday, they decided it would be a lovely idea to celebrate the two events together!  My couple live and work in the South of England, but the Bride is originally from the Teesside area and still has lots of family and friends here, and they decided that they would love to have their special day ‘up North’!

From the telephone call, we arranged to meet up a few days later for our initial consultation when they would be visiting the family to give them their fabulous news, and we hit it off straight from the off!

Having a busy work and lifestyle, living away and a very demanding and short time-frame to work with to get everything arranged on schedule, Kath was beginning to feel a little under pressure and wondered if I might be able to help.  So from then on, as they say, it was all systems go!

At our initial consultation we discussed all the birthday and wedding plans to date and, together with Louis – we looked at what they had already organised and how we could rearrange everything to suit their wishes, together with what was still left to do.  They already knew what kind of wedding they wanted - an intimate, chic and understated day - but decided they needed a little bit of The Chic Wedding Company ‘Planning Magic’ to help create their perfect day and bring everything together!

Kath explained that she had already been in touch with the North Yorkshire Register Office and agreed a date and time to hold their wedding.  They also had enquired with a local hotel and restaurant to hold their wedding reception and provisionally made reservations.  They also had an idea of how many guests they would like to invite.  However, I did a little advance investigation and from previous experience, discovered that the local Register Office could not accommodate the number of guests they were wanting to be present at the ceremony.  This hadn’t been something they had thought of, or realised,


So, after re-arranging the bridegroom’s Birthday Dinner to the original hotel and restaurant (the venue they had chosen initially for their wedding celebrations isn’t licensed to carry out weddings) and choose an alternative venue which was available on their chosen day and able to accommodate all their guests and wishes, during our initial consultation!  Our usual practice is to discuss what the couple’s requirements are, and how we at The Chic Wedding Company may be able to help them to create their special day, and from this produce a Wedding Planning ‘Proposal’ in order for them to decide if, and how, they would like to proceed. But, in this case we were literally hired on the spot!!

Over the following 3 months we had regular email and phone contact and fit in planning meetings when Kath and Louis were able to come up to visit, where I was able to advise and offer inspiration as plans progressed.  It was decided that having a wedding planner available on the day was a must so that all of the family could enjoy the wedding celebrations without having to worry about a thing...

It was my absolute pleasure to help out, and I loved ensuring that my lovely Bride and Groom had the day they had dreamed of.

I'm very pleased to say, that even with quite a short time-frame, all Kath and Louis’ wishes and plans came together beautifully, so it’s fair to say that, ’Wonderful Wedding’s don’t  only happen with many, many months (or indeed years of planning) …. with a little bit of professional assistance anything and everything is possible!

 

“As I have said before, your attention to detail was so great, I had nothing to worry about.  If I could have written a script for our wedding day it would have gone exactly the way it did.  I wish we could get married every year!!!  I like to think we have become friends.”

Kath and Louis

Rowena and Mike
Scarborough Spa
2012

 

Debbie - The Mother of the Bride called me about 5 months before her daughter's wedding day as she was struggling with a full-time, demanding job, family and trying to organise her daughter's big day too!  She was beginning to feel a little under pressure and wondered if I might be able to help..  We arranged an initial consultation to discuss all the wedding plans to date and, together with Rowena - her daughter - looked at what they had already organised and what was still left to do.  They already knew what kind of wedding they wanted - an outside ceremony overlooking the sea - and had booked their venue and Registrar but needed a little bit of Wedding Planning Magic to bring everything together!  

Over the following 4 months we had regular planning meetings, where I was able to advise and offer inspiration as plans progressed.  It was decided that having a wedding planner available on the day was a must so that all of the family could enjoy the wedding celebrations without having to worry about a thing...

It was my absolute pleasure to help out, and I loved ensuring that Debbie and Steve gave their daughter and new son-in-law the day they had dreamed of.

I'm very pleased to say, that even the unpredictable summer weather behaved itself on the day.... and the sun came out at the right time too - so the all-important wedding umbrellas weren't  required  and the sea-view ceremony was simply perfect!  The open-topped bus tour around Scarborough and the bride arriving in-style by way of the Victorian Cliff Lift made the day beautifully unique...

 

"I wasn’t sure at first if a Wedding Planner was for us. We pretty well knew what we wanted. However, Wendy was able to step in with some lovely suggestions, source one or two items I would never have thought of and was at all times mindful of my daughter and her husband-to-be’s wishes. She also kept us on track so that nothing was overlooked, and acted as a sounding board for worries and decisions. It was so re-assuring to hand the last minute checks and ‘on the day’ arrangements over to Wendy. Her calm competence was so re-assuring I could completely relax and fully enjoy the day. We only have one daughter and I am so pleased that I could leave the worrying to Wendy and spend the day focusing on my daughter before the ceremony, and my family, friends and guests afterwards.

Wendy's consummate professionalism and attention to detail was exactly what we needed to ensure a perfect day for everyone concerned.  You only have one chance for a perfect wedding day and there was no going back to do it again.  The new Mr and Mrs, and us as the parents of the bride are all so grateful to The Chic Wedding Company for their discreet presence 'behind the scenes' working to ensure flawless organisation and arrangements."

Mr & Mrs Wilson
