Wedding Planning Services

Melanie and her team are highly regarded and national award winning wedding planners offering couples the opportunity to have full support throughout their wedding planning.

Our ethos is quite simply to plan and organise a wedding which not only will meet but exceed our client’s expectations, to capture what is most important to them and to deliver to ultimate wedding day for our couples. To take them on a journey where all the choices and decisions they make are filled with fun and excitement, to support and eliminate any stress or uncertainty and to create a beautiful moment in time that will always be remembered by their family and friends and of course by us.

We begin with an initial consultation where we establish exactly what kind of day you have in mind – or you may not even have got to that stage – we will help you to discover what you may want – what it will look like, and feel like.

The combination of skills within the Bellissimo team brings together many years of experience on both the operational/logistics side through to the design and styling of your wedding. The Bellissimo Group also includes our own in house catering company in our Dorset kitchen, our own luxury furniture hire company with a beautiful collection of furniture to choose from and a wide selection of props and other wedding hire items.

You really can have as much assistance from the team as you choose with all these skills under one roof – yet still ensuring you retain control of the decisions you wish to make throughout your wedding planning.

Let us take away the stress and worry of planning your day – enlisting the help of an award winning planner and allowing you to do what you should be doing – enjoying it the planning and LOVING the day!

Plan as you go

A block of our time to help you where you need it most

Ideal for:

Couples who like the idea of a “Wedding PA” service with us working away in the background. Purchase our time in blocks starting with 10 hours and add more as you need it. Use us as and when you need us, e.g a brainstorming meeting at the beginning to get you started, or pull us in when you get stuck on a particular element of planning. Maybe use us on the day just for styling or setting up the venue. Great for couples who don’t necessarily want or need us all the time or for the whole day. Good for couples who want to have a large amount of involvement or pick and choose the bits they want to do themselves.

Example costs:

  • – 10 hours @ £55 per hour (£550) for one of our Senior Planners
  • – 10 hours @ £45 per hour (£450) for one of our Wedding Planners

This is what Anne and Chris said about our service who got married in summer 2016:

“The Plan as you Go worked brilliantly for us.  We had a fairly clear idea of what we were looking for at our wedding, and I wanted to do as much of the organisation as I could, myself.   But partly due to living in London, I was struggling to work out which suppliers would be good value, not let us down, and be able to provide us with exactly what we were looking for, on such an important day! Melanie provided expert guidance, and she gave me straightforward advice that was based on her deep experience of the wedding market place.  From the first phone call, through to the last minute detail, she was calm, and a fun person to work with. She or one of her team, were always on hand to deal with questions, concerns, and the occasional – “help!!”  On an hour by hour basis, she provided excellent value for money, and even though she worked in the background to the wedding, she was an absolutely integral part of its success! Thanks again Melanie!”
