Do you need a little bit of extra planning help? If the answer is yes then our Dolly Hours are the perfect way to pay as you plan. You simply buy our expertise by the hour and use the hours whenever you them, whatever you need them for. They are great for busy couples who want to do most of the planning themselves but just need a little bit of professional advice here and there.
Dolly Hours can be used for things like sourcing suppliers, obtaining quotes, creating styling boards and setting up planning schedules. It’s completely up to you – it’s like your very own wedding pick and mix!
Each Dolly Hour costs £35 but if you book your Dolly Hours before the end of March 2014 we’ll give you an extra hour FREE for every three hours you book. Simply quote “HelloFreeHour” when you drop us a line.
We think they make great presents for recently engaged couples! Just ask us for a gift card when booking.

Well Happy New Year everyone! In 2013 we worked in a variety of amazing venues, from village halls and marquees at home to Castles, barns and even a field! In 2014 our venues are just as varied and we can’t wait to work with some fantastic venues that we haven’t worked with before – here’s a sneak peek at just some of them:
We’re also preferred planners at the beautiful St Clere Estate which has only limited dates available for 2014 and was where we created this fabulous Whimsical Snow White inspired shoot that appeared on super blogs Before the Big Day and Secret Wedding. It’s also featured in A Kentish Ceremony magazine this month too.
If you’ve booked your venue and think you might need an extra pair of experienced hands on your big day or you’re still looking to find that perfect place then give us a call or click here to see how we might be able to help.
