What makes North East Wedding Planners different to other planners?
I (Donna) wanted to answer this one personally..
Weddings are unique, beautiful, emotional and often the biggest day of someone’s life, and I with the team are honoured to be able to create them.
Working with couples from all over the world and really getting to know them is an incredible experience and something I have an immense passion for doing.
After twenty years of large scale project management and co-ordinating weddings, I have learnt it all comes down to two things, the Connection and Personality.
You must have a Connection with the couple to really get to know them and create a wedding which is all about them, it also makes for a fun planning process!
The other is Personality, taking into account the personality of the setting, of course the couple and a little of what makes North East Wedding Planners special, bringing it all together to create something stunning, personal and which has never been seen before.
Creating weddings is what I do, what I love doing, and I can’t see myself doing anything else.
