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!

Marquee Weddings

Marquee weddings are a very popular avenue that couples explore, either because the venue type dictates the reception needs to be held in a marquee, or couples chose that route as its ideal for couples with their own vision and offers a fantastic blank canvas for you to really make your own.

With over 10 years’ experience, we find that marquee weddings can be the most complex in terms of planning.  A lot of the planning for a marquee wedding happens in the early stages so it is essential that you have a strong team involved with your planning early on in the process and you select good, experienced suppliers which fit both your brief and your budget.

We appreciate that the option to have a marquee wedding may have been chosen as an easy alternative to a permanent building (in the sense of freedom it certainly is!) However, in terms of planning, there are a lot of ‘non-glamourous’ aspects that need careful consideration.

We would always carry out a site visit at your chosen location early on to ensure that the access is appropriate for a marquee build and check the for things such as land level, parking, water supply etc.  We can advise on all the back ground essentials of power / generators / toilets / lighting / heating.  We would be able to offer you advice on marquee companies and suppliers that are experienced in working with marquee weddings. These are also things that are not easily changed close to the wedding date and require early involvement. We therefore do not offer solely Wedding Day Management for this type of wedding.

Please therefore refer to our Partial Plan (including a three month retainer of our time) or Full plan services (both of which include Wedding Day Management) so we can guarantee the seamless running of your wedding day.
