Lauren & Jimmy
Great John Street Hotel, Manchester
Jimmy got in touch with us six months before their big day. He could see Lauren was feeling the stress. With a very demanding job which included working night shifts this was understandable!
They were planning their wedding at the fabulously quirky Great John Street Hotel in Manchester and whilst they had a lot of elements in place, they needed help bringing things together and sourcing their remaining suppliers. We conducted a detailed venue visit and worked with their existing suppliers to ensure they had all the information they required.
With exclusive use of the hotel, guests could wander around at their leisure exploring the old school corridors and getting into mischief outside the headmaster’s office. The rooftop terrace sadly didn’t see much action though as the weather was being typically Mancunian!
Some of our favourite moments included the gospel choir singing at the ceremony, how stunning Lauren looked, the funny and very touching speeches, the quirky doughnut cake (and the children pinching doughnuts off it before it had been cut!), the bespoke stationery a friend had made, the photos outside in the rain (we had brollies)! and the fabulous first dance to the Hall and Oates classic ‘You make my dreams come true’!
Lauren and Jimmy were a delight to work with, both of them so hard working and down to earth, they really appreciated what we did, which for them took the pressure off and allowed them to relax and enjoy the day with their family and friends.
“I don’t think I can find the right words to explain how amazing you are. Andrea you were an absolute God send during our wedding planning journey. Thank you so much for making our day as special as it was, from keeping the ushers in line to responding to the endless emails I sent you! You took all of the stress away and made it truly magical. I don’t know what we would have done without you. Anyone considering getting a wedding planner - give Andrea a call. You won’t regret it”
