Fun Wedding Planner Guidance Planning Bespoke Full Planning Month of Planning

Fun Wedding Planner
Suffolk & Essex

Here at Ella Bella Weddings and Events I will come in and do as much or as little of the planning as you both want. From finding the venue, to styling your tables. From matching you to your perfect suppliers, to making sure your day runs smoothly, ironing out any hiccups along the way.  Saving you time to concentrate on what really matters, YOU, enjoying the wedding planning process and getting excited about the parts of planning you are looking forward to.

Let’s say no to all the traditions and have your wedding, your way! Giving you the freedom to express yourselves throughout your wedding day.

We only do Unique, Quirky and Fun Weddings here!

Weddings by Ella Bella are original and quirky.

You hate the thought of being centre of attention? Then let’s get rid of any aspects that make you cringe inside.

Not a flower fan? Let’s get button bouquets instead.

Does the walk down the aisle terrify you? Mingle with your guests beforehand instead.

Not a cake lover? Have a cake made of cheese instead.

Want to get married on top of a mountain? With a celebrant led wedding it can be done!

You do have a choice in every aspect of your wedding day and I’m here to help guide you.

It’s your day, let’s do it your way!

I will be your Cheerleader from the first step, to after the last...

I will make sure all the wedding suppliers we use for your wedding day are LGBTQIA+ owned or allies. So you can relax knowing you are in the best hands and surrounded by like minded people for your wedding day.

Before any venue or showroom visits, I will make sure that they are accessible for you. So you don’t have to make all those extra calls before you get there.

I will help you keep your wedding day sustainable as possible. Keeping one-use plastic usage to a minimum and hiring in your decor, so it can be reused, from sustainable wedding suppliers. Together we can make a difference to our planet.

You do not need to spend an absolute fortune and get into debt on your wedding day. I will help you both prioritise what and who you really want there, so you can put your budget in the places it’s wanted. I will help you define between the ‘shoulds’ of a wedding and your wants for your personal day.

Neurodivergent? I am on my own ADHD diagnosis journey and learning all about myself again, let’s be friends? We will reduce the decision making process and take it one step at a time, so not to cause you overwhelm.

The possibilities are endless for you and your wedding and I will cheerlead you through this entire planning process. Giving you the confidence to have the day you truly want. Taking away that overwhelm so you can actually enjoy the lead up to your day and look forward to the elements of the wedding you find fun. 

I’m here for you from the beginning right up to the wedding day itself and beyond. I still speak and keep up with all my couples after the wedding day, I get to see your marriage blossom and grow. I seriously have the best job in the world!

Ella Bella Wedding Packages

I offer three bespoke packages, which are all designed to make your day run smoothly.

What the FAQ?

What exactly does a wedding planner do?

We make your lives easier, simpler, fun and relaxing. We can do as much or as little of the planning, as you want us to. 

Wedding Planners offer a range of services. From designing the theme/style of the day, organising all your badass suppliers to sourcing your ideal venue and helping you with the table plan (if you want one!). From your wedding attire and music to keeping on top of your budget and RSVPs. 

We spend hours behind a computer screen researching all the ‘perfect for you’, possibilities for your vision of your day and offer you expert advise all the way through the planning process. 

We make you a timeline for the day so it runs smoothly and effortlessly. From set up to take down we will be there for as long as you want us. We save you time and money in the long run.

HOW MUCH DOES A WEDDING PLANNER COST?

Many wedding planners charge a percentage of your budget anywhere between 10%-15% with a minimum fee. Other planners charge an hourly fee Check out my blog on How much does a wedding planner cost?

Why are you so passionate about Inclusive Weddings?

Because I believe in love and everyone has the right to marry who they love, no matter who they identify as. 

I have two disabled daughters and we live in a very inaccessible world and I would like to change that one industry at a time.

I am also bisexual myself and a member of the committee for Suffolk Pride. So I have seen first hand some of the issues the LGBTQIA+ community face on a daily basis. I have made it my mission to help wedding businesses show that they are inclusive, so it makes it easier for couples to find their people.

What is the Difference between a Wedding planner and a venue coordinator?

The biggest difference is that they work for the venue, not you, so they will only help you with venue related queries. Whereas a wedding planner is working alongside you throughout the entire wedding planning process. Read more on my blog What is the difference between a wedding planner and a venue coordinator?
