Alternative Wedding Planner in Suffolk

Hi I’m Jodie, my pronouns are She/Her and I run Ella Bella Weddings and Events, based in Ipswich. I cover Essex and Suffolk and specialise in celebrant led weddings!

  • Getting bored of seeing the same weddings posted on Instagram? You want something different? Me too!
  • You want a Harry Potter or Star Wars themed wedding. I’ve got you!
  • Don’t like the rules and regulations of a standard wedding? Here I am!
  • Want a tattoo station at the reception? YES!
  • Never wanted a traditional wedding outfit? Bring me all the colours and Epicness!
  • Know exactly what you want but don’t know where to start? You are in the right place!


Here at Ella Bella Weddings and Events, I plan alternative weddings, centred around your personalities, likes and hobbies. Creating your unique wedding and matching you with the best badass suppliers for your visions to come to life.

Helping you prioritise what’s important to you both and changing any part of the day that isn’t. 

Because I believe every couple should have the wedding day they truly want, no matter who they are or who they  identify as.

So I’m here to show you, that you absolutely do have a choice, in every aspect of your wedding planning journey.

Are you ready to throw the wedding rulebook out the window?

Ella Bella is solely focused on you as a couple and what makes you special.

I want every couple to feel that their day represents them. Let’s make it fun and reflect both of you.

Fully inclusive and proud to be a LGBTQIA+ and disabled friendly wedding supplier.

I promise to make sure when planning your wedding, that the venue and suppliers we use are inclusive, accessible and your day is as sustainable as it can be.

First Aid trained and Insured so you can be assured your day will run smoothly.

The most important element to your day is YOU and I can’t wait to work alongside you both.

Cheerleading you throughout the entire wedding planning process. I have got your back.

Are you ready to get outside the box and create the wedding day you have always wanted? I can help you organise the logistics of your day, no matter what you’ve got in mind.

I won’t question or judge your wildest desires, I welcome them and they excite me! Let’s bend the rules of wedding planning. Break the mould. Just do you.

Ella Bella Events offers a Power Hour, Bespoke Full Planning and On the Month Coordination. 

Giving you choice all the way.

Party Planner

Here at Ella Bella Weddings and Events I plan awesome parties for you and your guests with short lead times, taking over all the planning so you can sit back and relax whilst the magic happens.

I love organising parties and letting my imagination run wild with your theme. 

The Possibilities are endless and it is so much fun.

Taking on your party and assembling all the suppliers, leaving you to figure out what you’re going to wear.

Relieving you of everything and getting it done, so you can get ready to PARTAY!

I offer a bespoke planning service especially for you and all your party needs.
