I loved it when
Most wedding planners choose this career because they love people and especially people in love, they also get a thrill from investigating something elusive or unique for clients. So here at the UKAWP we thought we would chat to our members and ask them a range of questions in a new series called “I loved it when”

What has been the stand out theme common to all your weddings and clients this year?
Outdoor ceremonies have been the request this year. And given our inclement summer weather, it was a miracle that I managed to give all couples their outdoor ceremonies!
Outdoor ceremonies are wonderful for rustic/vintage/earthy weddings. If you would like an outdoor ceremony it’s important to have a contingency plan in place in case you have to move it indoors. I remember one wedding where I spent the morning counting clouds!
What’s been the most beautiful / ‘wow’ wedding thing you’ve seen this year at a wedding?
I planned a coastal outdoor ceremony for a sweet American couple on a cliff in the fishing village of Howth, Co Dublin. The backdrop of sweet heather, blue sea and sky, seagulls and sheer cliff rock was simply breathtaking.
