Secrets of a wedding planner
Delicious London are specialists in expertly planned urban weddings, bathed in romance with special attention to creative design and catering. Lauren Wyllie is a wedding planner at Delicious London and answered a few questions about weddings and gave us a few hints on how to plan the big day.
What is your favourite moment of a wedding?
When the groom turns around to see his bride walking down the aisle in all her glory, it’s an exciting and memorable moment for the couple, with so much anticipation! Makes me emotional even to think about it.
Which is the most common mistake that people make at their weddings?
Not to take stock. Every couple should take a 5 mins together every hour or so, to absorb what is happening – basque in the love of all their favourite people.
What is a must have for every wedding?
Excellent food and drinks! We like to try and create interactive elements so guests interact and get involved.
What trend should see a comeback?
Trends come and go, then come back again, and so on….We advise staying true to your own style and likes, and creating a look and feel that stands the test of time.
What part of planning consumes the most time?
Our event plans – our minute by minute event plans are epic but they work! Keeping everything running smoothly behind the scenes.
Which locations are in right now?
The unique and bizarre! Our brides and grooms pride themselves on their individuality and are prepared to look anywhere to find it!
What is your favourite wedding location?
In London we love studios and terraces, and we also love Barcelona and its coastline. We have a sister office out there and love to support them with their weddings. See www.deliciousbarcelona.com
Beach or chapel?
Both! Chapel for ceremony then if you can, create contrast with a beach party!
What makes a good bridesmaid?
Patience, love and more patience….
