James & Karen: Wedding Day Co-ordination by Wedding Daze

Couple: James & Karen
Holy Trinity Church, Wentworth followed by a Marquee Garden Reception, Rotherham

Service from Wedding Daze: Wedding Day Co-ordination

Karen and James contacted us as they wanted an informal, relaxed and stress free wedding day. They asked us to co-ordinate their wedding ceremony and reception, ensuring their day ran smoothly and to time.

On their wedding day, I was at the ceremony ensuring that the Church was set up correctly, the guests arrived on time and were seated, orders of service were handed out and also co-ordinating the guests for photographs. It was a beautiful Church service, and was very moving and personal to James and Karen. Vincent was at the garden reception ensuring that the marquee was set up correctly, suppliers arrived on time and were show to their correct place/set -up. When the ceremony was over I then joined Vincent at the reception and we worked together to make sure it ran smoothly and to time.

James and Karen opted for a English/vintage tea party look to their wedding celebration. The marquee was beautifully set out with vintage tea cups, saucers, cake stands and tea pots (I love this look!). Each was individual and gave the wedding a unique and personal feel to the day. James and Karen hired Angelic Angels to entertain and look after the children that came to the wedding. The wedding breakfast was catered for by PJ Taste, a fantastic catering company who provided James and Karen with a delicious 3 course meal including Roast Rivelin Valley Topside Beef - yummy! It was a pleasure to work with PJ Taste, more about their personal catering service can be found here.

A fabulous fact about this wedding is that James designed and made Karens wedding dress (he does in work in fashion!) I think don't think that happens very often! Karen looked beautiful (see pictures above!). Karen also surprised James with the arrival of his sister from South Africa!

We wanted to say a big thank you to James and Karen and both their families for making us feel so welcome on their wedding day.

Below is a few kind words that they have said about us! Congratulations, we wish you many years of happiness, such a lovely couple! More images of this beautiful day can be found here x x

"When we planned our wedding our main goals from the onset was to keep it very personal and to create a welcoming, homely atmosphere where our friends and family could relax and enjoy a very special day with us. We wanted to keep it stress free and be able enjoy every moment of it. This required the help of wedding co-ordinators, and as it was a small and intimate wedding, we absolutely had to get the right people for the job. Vinny and Emma were just what we wanted From the onset they were very professional and friendly and very personable. They made perfect hosts for the event.

Being flexible in the service they provided, they were able to tailor to the specific requirements of our special day. They are both very reliable. I am often asked if I remember much of the day and if it went very quick. Contrary to expectation I remember it all and it felt like one of those days that just lasted a long time. This I believe is due to us fully trusting Wedding Daze with the important bits and just being able to sit back and enjoy the day. Many guests were full of praise as well, complementing on their friendliness and courtesy. Their service comes highly recommended." By James & Karen
