She offers a uniquely personal service, adapting to meet each couples needs and works closely with them throughout the process.

She is able to offer couples peace of mind that they have someone on the ground, working on their behalf.

 The wedding planning services offered by A Dream French wedding are as flexible as possible; from full A-Z wedding planning, to pre-wedding consultancy and on-the-day coordination.

 A-Z planning covers all stages of the wedding planning process and includes;

 * an initial discussion about requirements,

 * assistance with the budget,

 * sourcing a suitable venue,

 * negotiation of all supplier bookings ( ceremony and reception venues, celebrant, caterer, florist, photographer, videographer, bridal beautician, wedding day transport, musicians/DJs/PA hire, cake, staff, marquee/furniture/tableware hire etc)

* compiling a wedding day itinerary,

* re-confirming all supplier bookings,

 * wedding day assistance to manage the special event.

A Dream French Wedding charges couples a flat-fee for the wedding planning service. Whilst the planner negotiates on all bookings and liases closely with the suppliers throughout the process,the actual supplier contracts are between suppliers and the couple so there are no hidden extras- any discounted rates from suppliers are passed directly from the planner to the couple. Couples can be sure that all suppliers are selected purely based on merit.


"Joanna was recommended to us and thank goodness she was. She was the glue that kept everything together from the time we first started talking until the day we married a year later. She went absolutely above and beyond what we would have ever expected.

"From start to finish, Joanna thought of everything, she gave us good ideas and suggestions and went that extra mile to help us stay within our budget and still manage to make our day so special. Everything went perfectly and this was all down to her. Thank you so much for helping to make our day feel like a fairytale.
