Laura and James married on a beautiful August day. They came to us having already chosen their perfect venues for the kind of day they wanted. What they needed from that point was a Planner on hand in the UK to coordinate the day for them as the Bride resides in the US. They were married in the Sacred Heart Church in Bournemouth. Their guests (from the UK and the US) were then whisked away in a London Route Master to Rhinefield House Hotel for a quintessentially English celebration.

With Laura living abroad, communication was mainly via email although we had a couple of opportunities to meet with Laura on her short trips here and to arrange for her to meet suppliers. We worked with the couple to assist with supplier recommendations, styling ideas and coordination on our partial plan and on the day coordination service to ensure the smooth running of their day for a little over a year.

Melanie and Danielle were on hand on the day to oversee the set up of the venues, supplier arrivals and making sure the day was everything the couple had wished for.

The couple contacted us after the wedding and here’s what they said about our service: –

“You’re crazy if you don’t hire Bellissimo for your wedding. I don’t know what I would’ve done without them. They are amazing and my day went perfectly because of them. They are the reason I was able to just enjoy our big day. So many things came up and people were asking me what to do. I said go find Melanie or Danielle. I can’t help you 😊. What an amazing burden it took off my shoulders. They are remarkably organized and on point. Loved having them for our wedding and was worth every penny!!”

We had the pleasure of working with some of Dorset’s finest suppliers so a special thanks goes to (and a big thank you to Peppermint Love Photography and the couple for sharing their images):-
