When I started out my business, I was very fortunate to have stepped into the role of luxury wedding & event planner. I had worked for the Consulate of Cyprus for just a few weeks, when I had been asked by HE to organise a private party for him and other national delegates, so I did just that. I planned a beautiful outdoor luxury garden dinner, set up in the back garden under the African skies for 10 guests. The table was set up with some beautiful silver candelabras, silverware, crystal glassware and two low centrepieces filled with orange and green flowers to represent the Cypriot flag.
I was very happy with the outcome and HE guests were too, so from there I then planned national days for a number of Embassies, which included some of the following countries: United States of America, Spain, Greece, United Kingdom and Kuwait. A couple of years later I was planning luxury weddings.
Why a Luxury Wedding Planner
A lot of people hear the word luxury wedding planner and automatically think it’s about how much money you have to have to plan your day, but it’s not about how much money you have, it’s about the experience and exclusivity you will receive with Hire Societies, supplying you with individuality, security and privacy.
The modern day couples don't have the time to plan their day, either because they are busy with their families, work or social life. Having a wedding planner to plan your day will save you time due to us knowing where to go, so you don't have to spend hours shortlisting venues or suppliers. I will take charge to secure the right supplier to represent your day and overlook all aspects of your day, from gifts to RSVPS to honeymoons.
A luxury wedding planner takes much longer to plan your day than the average wedding which approx. 300 hours, I would say double these hours as there are so much finer details to take care of. High end weddings still have all the traditional experiences like an average wedding, the difference between the two is the details, experience and uniqueness.
The details come down to having suppliers that offer something completely different and the best of the best, something that is exclusive to you. The 3 outfit changes along with three different hairs styles, It is you day after all. The finest centrepieces and table décor with the finest bespoke favours that have been made to order, to having the entrance that is breath-taking, your taste buds dancing around as they eat the finest of meals made by the finest of chefs, your guests feeling the excitement with you and for you. This is your kingdom for the day - it is tailored to you.
There are a lot of wedding planners out there that work for the couples and believe it’s their job to run around like headless chickens just because the client is paying. I DO NOT work like this, I am very up front and I will tell you if it’s the right way or the wrong way, or something will not work. I am very passionate about hearing my clients on what they want for their day; I am there to offer you a shoulder to cry on, a shoulder for you to lean on, someone to laugh about the aspect of planning, I am your councillor and your friend and if need be to tell the parents to step back. I am honest and trustworthy.
Hire Societies offers a personal service along with a modern, contemporary and chic designing style and will use the greatest team to execute your day, I am there for you on the other end of the phone making sure you and your partner are happy. I promise to give you that personal one to one service. We offer so much more in our bespoke luxury wedding planning, that I would rather discuss this over zoom – it’s more personal too!
