Oh Faye. Where do I start??? How can I sum up everything that you have done for us??? For the last two years you have been my go-to person. I think I'm going to be lost now without you! Words really cannot express how grateful we are to you for all of the hard work and effort you put in planning and pulling off our wedding weekend! It was honestly the most amazing feat! And genuinely it would have been impossible without you!
To outline Faye’s job/role in our event, it was far from being the typical job of running a single-day wedding, instead she organised, directed and worked a 4-day wedding weekend from start to finish and managed it all seamlessly. She is an absolute hero!
In the year/months leading up to our wedding Faye found ALL of our supplier options and helped us choose the best fits for us as a couple.
She negotiated prices and deliveries and got us the best deals possible.
There were several hiccups along the way and Faye dealt with them all and made sure nothing was missed or forgotten.
In the days leading up to the wedding itself Faye managed the setup of the event (co-ordinating the yurt arrival and setup, delivery of furniture, catering marquee, generator, toilets, flowers, and much more). Not only did Faye arrange and organise all the suppliers for us, she also thought ahead and brought loads of her own items with her, including umbrellas, extension cables, an easel, a chalkboard, pen! You name it, Faye had thought of it!
On the wedding day itself she was in charge of everything from start to finish. She set up chairs, carried tables, hung pompoms, calmed nerves, arranged music to play, helped the band and DJ set up (she even arranged the magnificent weather!). There was absolutely nothing for us to worry or even think about. She had everything under control. We were just there to enjoy the day, and looking back that was invaluable and is the reason we relaxed and had so much fun. To not have to think or worry about anything other than being in the moment and celebrating with our loved ones was amazing, and all because Faye was there.
On a personal note I just want to say that as well as being the world's best planner and organiser, Faye herself is just the most fantastic person. She is friendly, kind, funny and so easy to get on with and extremely supportive. She was brilliant with all the people involved and clearly forges strong working relationships with suppliers. Everyone loves her.
As cliché as it may sound, Faye honestly did give us the best day of our lives. Without her so many of the key moments we look back on would be missing.
We loved our wedding so much and while I'm not sad it's over, (because it was perfect and we have those amazing memories to look back on) I am already considering a 10 year vow renewal.... So Faye, I know it wouldn't technically be a wedding.... but you'd be on board to help us plan and pull off a vow renewal right???? Do me a favour and put us in your diary for 9 years and 11 months from now. Because there's no way I'd even think to attempt it without you! Lots and lots of love, Bee and Matt.
