Some Kind Words...

Wedding Couple

Thank you so much for all your support and help in the lead up to our wedding. You have been our rock throughout and an absolute joy to work with in making our vision and dreams come true. We loved having you there on the day, you’re the best! PS Can’t imagine not coming back to plan more! 10 year anniversary next with you as manager!

Just a little note to say thank you so much for all your help in co-ordinating our wedding! We had a wonderful, wonderful day (better than we could ever have imagined!), all thanks to your careful organisation and support in the months preceding. You were extremely professional, calm in the face of adversity (!), practical….and you always had a smile on your face!

We still can’t believe how smoothly it all went – we didn’t have to worry about a thing, knowing that you had all the details in hand.

Thank you once again – you are a star!

'Kirsty has been brilliant at helping us with the design and decor for our venue. We couldn't have done this without her! She is extremely efficient and always answers our questions quickly which is so very helpful. We also plan to have Kirsty help us coordinate on the day which is brilliant, as knowing she is there to organise will make it a far more enjoyable day! She also has lots of great contacts for suppliers and has really good recommendations. Really looking forward to continuing to work with her to make our day special!'

Just wanted to say a massive thanks to you all for making our day amazing. It went without a hitch and I was able to fully relax knowing you had it all sorted. I wanted to say a particular thanks to you for your help in the planning, keeping me calm and making my rainforest wedding a reality. I could not having done it without you. 

'Kirsty is an absolute gem - I am so pleased to have her helping plan our wedding at Sopley Mill later this year.

Although I work in the wedding industry I had a lot of questions and Kirsty has helped work through all of these and more. She is literally worth her weight in gold - I don't think we would of even been able to have our wedding on the day we wanted if we hadn't received her guidance on booking the registrar!!! Thank you Kirsty - you have made the planning process so much more transparent - keeping me on task and making sure we don't miss anything!!

I see so many brides who have almost lost the love for their wedding as its just become a stressful experience - but with Kirsty on hand you have someone who will listen and come up with real solutions. Its just the little things like knowing that the venue will be set up on the day without having to oversee it myself is amazing! And don't worry about trawling around wedding fairs etc looking for good suppliers - Kirsty has an extensive list of recommended suppliers which saves so much time and stress.

I'm really looking forward to our vision coming together now - thanks so much Kirsty xx'

I am in the early stages of planning my wedding. I had so many unanswered questions and anxieties about the smooth running of things on the day. My main concern was not having to rely on family members to set-up in the morning and ensure things ran to schedule during the day. Then my mum met Kirsty at a wedding Fayre and we found our answer. I am so relieved to have found someone with experience of weddings and my chosen venue to take on that responsibility for us. Our initial meeting was a real eye opener. Kirsty advised me on how to help with all sorts of details of the day, which I hadn't even thought of! I feel in very good hands.

Firstly Kirsty, thank you for helping to make our special day so perfect and for ensuring everything went so smoothly. The day was all we could have wished for. Not sure if you heard but James thanked you in his speech! That's how great you were and how much we appreciated your help!

Kirsty and all at Laurel have been amazing, from the initial consultation to the email support when ever i need it !!! We have booked the full PA service and it has turned out to be the best thing ever, A weight has been lifted, I have an idea, I email Kirsty and she deals with it... what more could you ask for xxx

'Tony and I would not hesitate to recommend the services of Planning By Laurel and would in fact actively encourage anyone getting married to do so. The service is so much more than wedding planning as you may think in the traditional sense, it is more like having your personal wedding PA who really does take the stress and worry away from you.

There is no need to take up your time and to make yourself exhausted in the lead up to your wedding when you can use Planning By Laurel’s service and exceed every expectation.

Aside from freeing up time, removing stress and giving inspiration the value you will get from using Planning By Laurel’s services is immeasurable and will help you to look back on your wedding with no regrets.

Thank you again to Carol and Kirsty for making our day so special.'

'Thank you so much for setting up Elmers court for us, it was perfect. We had such a brilliant day and you definitely took a lot of stress away from us.' Abi & Pete - July 2016

Excellent service, offering invaluable knowledge and support both before and on the day. I cannot recommend Kirsty highly enough.’

‘Professional service and so very helpful and knowledgeable on everything occasion and wedding related. Will certainly recommend.’

'This beautiful lady will always get my vote.... Truly wonderful!!'

‘Just a note to say a really big thank you for making our recent strategy meeting such a success.It was a pleasure dealing with you all from the time we started through the planning stages and on to the actual delivery. I have had nothing but compliments from my colleagues; indeed our MD was so pleased with the event that he has already told our Country Manager’s PA that she needs to talk to me about you (praise indeed).’

‘I just want to send you a massive thank you for all your help in making our retreat run so smoothly. It was absolutely flawless and we've been getting feedback that it was the best retreat we've ever had (we've had five so far) and both myself and the Directors agree. Thank you for working with us to make sure all of the details were perfect and for accommodating our last minute changes and our tendency to go off schedule. We are so pleased with the service we received. Thank you so much for a wonderful event. This is going to a very hard one to beat for next year.’

‘I just wanted to send you and your teams a big thank you for all the hard work everyone put into this event. It was great to be surrounded by such a great team of people with positive can-do attitudes, which makes such a difference to our event. The attention to detail and hard work that went into this event from your side was so great to see and experience. ‘

‘Working with Kirsty was an absolute pleasure and as an Events firm it makes things so much easier to know that everything was in hand and would run smoothly throughout the booking, organisation and on the actual event. Last minute changes made by the group were dealt with most efficiently and where possible, any request I made was made available to me.’

‘From my first meeting with Kirsty Bull from your Events team in the run-up to the event, to the moment we left, everything was fantastic. Kirsty is an asset to the hotel and ensured that everything was dealt with in a timely and organised manner. She was incredibly professional, easy to get on with and nothing was a problem. I am a very organised person and to have someone on the same wavelength as me was a complete dream! I have worked on quite a lot of these events throughout my time and I have to say, this was one of the easiest to work on and it was very much down to Kirsty.’

‘Thank you for organising a wonderful weekend for us all. Appreciate that there is now a bit more to organise than in years gone by. The planning, execution, attention to detail by yourself was superb and the event was flawless.’
