When All You Have To Think About Is Seeing The Person You Love Most In The World

Finding My Wedding Style

Consider how you would like to feel on your wedding day, and what kind of experience you would like your guests to have. A relaxed family affair will have a very different vibe to a glamorous cocktail party, and a traditional ceremony in a breathtaking historic building would be planned very differently to say a festival wedding in the forest. And with so many styles, colours, venues, locations and themes influencing you it is easy to become overwhelmed and lose sight of what your marriage means to you. Discover your design and narrow down your brief by asking:

Our Top Five Wedding Planning Questions:

  • Where would you like to get married?
  • What would you like to wear; traditional or something completely different?
  • What time of year will you choose?
  • What atmosphere will you create?
  • What will be your guests lasting memories?

HOW TO MAX THE WEDDING BUDGET

bride guide,

Keep it simple, sophisticated, and timelessly elegant.

Every wedding tells a story, of love, a special connection between two people. It’s the joy and experience we love to share and what makes wedding planning magical. We know there’s the wedmin, logistics and family struggles, but you must always remember your wedding is about the love story ….

At Pamella Dunn Events we like to make dreams come true. Not in a clichéd fairytale way, but in a way where we take your desired vision and make it a reality. With a touch of glamour, of course. Although, there is always a happy ever after for our brides, grooms and other clients too. Lavish florals, exquisite event styling and design in luxury locations are our signature. We absolutely adore our clients and we treasure our special relationship. The gorgeous feedback we receive fills our hearts with joy and feeds our passion for excellence. 

Hear what Maria Staiano-Sharp had to say following her June 2017 wedding at Rudding Park in Yorkshire. “ Pamella is exceptional – our wedding morning went without a hitch and I genuinely think it was because of her. Her styling is also exquisite and our entrance hall was exactly as I imagined. THANK YOU for your military precision, organisation and creativity xxxx.”

Ahead of the brand new shiny website and following yesterday’s article where we unraveled the question, “do I need a wedding planner?” You contacted us with specific questions about what it was a wedding planner actually did. You wanted to now what it was that you didn’t know! The questions to ask, and the things to consider as you begin the exciting adventure of planning a wedding for the very first time. It’s unchartered territory and I’d like to help answer some of your questions.

As the considerations are seemingly endless the earlier you discuss your plans with a professional the less likely you are to encounter any issues that were so important to you. These could be restrictions at your venue that don’t allow naked flames or even insisting on their preferred suppliers, it could be crazy weather, your timings, the additional costs that squeeze your budget or noise restrictions that exclude your favourite band. Saving precious time early in the process could be the best wedding decision you make. Book a no obligation consultation with a planner and get an hours free wedding advice, it really could save you time and look after your budget, as well as ensuring a seamless and stress free day.

Design & Styling

And one of the best pieces of advice I could give would be to carefully consider any decision to style your own wedding. It is an exciting time and if you are a creative with passion and vision for how your wedding will look, I know you will be tempted to enlist the help of your bridal party to place your pretty details in your beautiful venue. You will want to oversee the proceedings whilst liaising with your hand picked suppliers, but the reality is you rarely have the time and your photographer and hair and makeup team will be calling you. Your closest friends and family will want to shower you with love and attention, and you will feel under pressure. A talented team of stylists will bring calm and joy to your most memorable of occasions. Enjoy this magical time and don’t be afraid to ask for expert advice.

From ‘wedmin’ to design, expert advice on venues, locations, artisan wedding suppliers, and a talented creative, an experienced wedding planner will inspire and guide you, reassure and excite you. They’ll have amazing ideas – one of our favourite Yorkshire venues has an outdoor fireplace we think is just made for toasting marshmallows!

A Destination Wedding Tour

Portofino to Alassio

The Italian Riviera

Throughout my career as a luxury wedding planner, it has always been my goal from the very beginning to travel, travel, and travel some more. And with the International Wedding Retreat 2018 being planned as we speak, my wanderlust has been greater than ever before. So you can imagine how happy I was when the exclusive invitation from Love Me In Liguria landed in my inbox one working day. An invitation, that was sending me, along with nine other international luxury wedding planners, to the Italian coast to experience first-hand the romance and breathtakingly beautiful vistas that couples can witness on their own wedding day. I really didn’t need asking twice!

Incredible views

Fast forward through the exciting stages of packing, planning and pinching myself and I was on my way, ready to meet my travel companions for the next four days. Arriving in Genoa, the first destination on our agenda for the week, the port provided the picture-perfect location to meet everyone for the first time over a welcome lunch at our boutique hotel.

Sitting and soaking up the rays under an ocean of blue skies we were given a very warm welcome by the organisers of this incredible adventure: Francesca and Valentina of Love Me in Italy and the Lunargento Publishing House and wedding and event planner Simona Chiavaccini. Safe to say we were in very good company! And glancing around the table I could tell it was going to be a week full of swapping stories, discussing all-things-weddings and genuinely spending time in some very good company.

And with that, let me introduce you to my new friends: Simona the PR and Marketing Manager from Zankyou – an online magazine reigning large in 23 countries and the largest wedding portal worldwide. Elisabetta of Intimately Inspired Events, Rui of Rui Mota Pinto Tailor & Planner, Froonck from Froonck of Der Wedding Planner, Olivia of Love Circus, Millie from Matthew Oliver Weddings, Daria of Caramel Events Wedding, Mirjam Wedding Guru, Marco from Ihr Hochzeitsplaner und Trauredner, and Mihai of High Emotion Weddings,

The welcome lunch swiftly gave way into a four day blur of guided tours, meeting expert wedding suppliers, dining on Michelin-starred meals and raising champagne to toast the trip. I guess it is just the way things go when 10 international wedding planners meet 55 Ligurian Vendors in the country of love.

We were welcomed into castles and villas, palaces and restaurants and truly educated on the hospitality of this Italian paradise. Love Me In Italy excelled themselves in bringing together the area’s industry finest to firmly place Liguria on the map as a land of weddings and love. Not too much of a stretch for a region that is known and loved all over the world. And what’s not to love? Marinas, blue skies, sunshine and wine – it’s all right here.

However, even with its reputation preceding itself it was a wonderful opportunity to experience the beauty, scenery, culture and history of this enchanting region up close. Mountain view after mountain view, each one a worthy postcard picture, signed sealed and delivered with the promise of the most breathtakingly beautiful wedding one could ever hope for. Along with the fine dining, perfect wine selection, and impeccable customer service that we knew our clients would certainly be treated too as well, this trip was one we will never forget.

When we weren’t indulging in canapes and aperitifs, we were winding our way through the streets of Portofino and Alassio where we could marvel at the villas and private gardens which hinted at the affluent lifestyle of Liguria’s locals.

Our journey took us onto Santa Margherita Ligure and Zoagli – all offering something totally different from the last, boasting their own appeal and sentiments, but all jostling for that special place in our memories that we would fondly recall once back in the UK.

I cannot thank Love Me In Liguria enough for their incredible welcome, hospitality and enlightening trip through the Ligurian region of Italy. I can firmly conclude that anyone lucky enough to be loved in Liguria should certainly take the chance. I am already itching to share the details with our international clients who are searching for their dream wedding location. Liguria truly is the land of the loved.

 

Until our next adventure …

Luxury Retreat Preview Woodlands Boutique Hotel Leeds

Our eagerly awaited preview to the International luxury retreats was last Sunday, it was a truly fabulous day and here Charlotte from award winning blog Redamancy shares all the fabulous details ….

A Champagne Reception – the perfect way to start a sunshiny Sunday

What do the words ‘luxury’ and ‘styling’ have in common? It’s a pretty straightforward answer; Pamella Dunn. Pam, or Pami to friends (which I am so lucky to be able to call her), has been stirring up styling sensations in the wedding industry for the last 7 years. I first met Pamella when I was given the enviable title of intern and brand ambassador, along with 6 other fabulous ladies, back in June 2016 and getting to know her and her business has been an absolute delight. The number one thing I have learnt? If Pam asks you to go on an adventure, you don’t even hesitate. It will be the best ride of your life.

Ever since I first met Pam I knew that one of her dreams was to take off around the world, inspiring little wedding wannabes (and I use that in the nicest sense of the world, as I too was a wedding wannabe) with her sparkling style and creative coaching methods. I love it when people hustle for their dream above and beyond anything else, and so when Pam mentioned to me that she was putting on a Preview of the Luxury Styling Retreat in Leeds before it headed to SYDNEY (!!!) I was practically happy dancing around my kitchen. Actually, I was literally happy dancing around my kitchen. Would I like to assist in planning it? Boy, would I!

Place setting details were carefully considered

Cue excited emails passed back and forth between myself, Pam, and all-round wunderkind Ellie Kime, a brainstorming session, a very delightful meeting in Filmore and Union (still dreaming about that Pistachio Rose Latte) and lots of instagram promotion. Sunday 14th of May had certainly seemed like a long way off when we were planning it but as with all majorly exciting things it soon came around quickly!

The night before the event I couldn’t sleep. I know this sounds like a terribly clichéd thing to say but it’s true. Not even the thought of setting my alarm for 5:45am could dampen my spirits (I’m more of a 8:45 girl myself). The next morning at 6:37 – I’m always 7 minutes behind schedule, potential future clients look away now – I was in my car, downing coffee in world-record time, and hot-footing it along the motorway.

I arrived at the beautiful Woodlands Hotel to find Pam doing what Pam does best – styling up a storm. It was a golden botanical haven, and the marquee styled to the nines really felt like a place where plans would be made and goals would be set. Exactly the type of place you want to be if you’ve got a hunger and passion for all things wedding biz. I immediately set to work helping recreate Pam’s vision, and as more of the LSRT (Luxury Styling Retreat Team) arrived it began to sink in that this was really happening.

This event was all about style, so I’m going to have to go into lots of adoring detail and descriptions and you’re just going to have to bear with me! Gold sequin tablecloths bathed the banqueting table running down one length of the room, lined with chivari chairs standing proudly dressed in their sashes. Golden glass charger plates, luxe golden cutlery and gold-rimmed goblets from Whitehouse crockery delivered opulence at its very best. Leafy green tropical table centrepieces stood high on golden plinths and candles filled every available gap. Palms reinforced the botanical look and balloons from Swoon Balloons provided some luxury fun. Pam’s favourite detail from the event was the stunning name plaque hoops she’d had designed to sit above each keynote speaker’s chair and I have to say it was an inspired idea which really added something a little bit special. Sofas created a chill-out area (3 course fine-dining experiences can be tiring, you know) and the table lined with gift bags just made me want to squeal.

By 10:00am setup was pretty much complete, which gave us half an hour before the guests were due to arrive. It was just enough time to revel in what Pam had created and take in the incredible atmosphere, which stayed with everyone for the rest of the day. During this time I met Kylie, the CEO of the Wedding Academy – with whom I completed my Advanced Diploma in Planning and Design – and Brand Manager for the Academy, Martha. After chatting with them for just 10 minutes I already felt totally inspired, so how the heck was I going to feel after the inspirational speeches?!

There was no time to dwell on that though as I shot off to the conservatory to be on hand to greet guests when they arrived. Champagne, anyone? This little welcome soiree was made even better by Liz Keeting doing her thing, performing some of the top wedding songs to ever exist. L is for the way you look at me… O is for… “Omg that balloon arch looks incredible!” I said in my inside voice, because I did not want to drown out Liz’s beautiful voice for a single second. Claire from Swoon Balloons had created an amazing display of white and gold balloons that really set the tone for the day as soon as guests arrived. My favourite detail? The printed banner displaying all of the suppliers involved in the event, from the lovely Zoe at The Golden Letter who designed the most stunning stationery suite ever, to YSL who sponsored the gift bags. Yes, you read that correctly – Yves. Saint. Laurent. There were also these super gorge quotation cards on the welcome table, inscribed with motivational sayings to get everyone in the mood. “Work until you no longer have to introduce yourself” is my favourite quote of all time and I’m very happy to say it made the cut.

After guests had enjoyed a little bit of bubbly in the sunshine, we all headed inside to commence the day. Liz, who was also acting as super-glam MC, had a special announcement for our guests. Hidden under 5 chairs were golden tickets that awarded the lucky recipient a free consultation with the lovely ladies from YSL in Harvey Nichols in Leeds, as well as a £50 voucher for a beauty makeover. What a prize, is what I thought when Pam told me, which was definitely echoed by the girls in the audience who threw themselves on the floor to check under chairs!

Helen Davies Curator at Sarah Beeny’s Rise Hall

Bums firmly back on seats, it was time for the speakers. First up, Helen Davies of Rise Hall. It sounds like an incredibly fancy title, and this lady deserves every single bit of it. ‘H’ is for Helen, but it’s also for Hustle and she has this in abundance. Helen started her own wedding planning company, The Wedding Concierge, 5 years ago. Within 12 months, Helen had been approached by Sarah Beeny (yes, the very one) who asked her to take over the wedding side of things at Rise Hall, which up until this point had been pretty poor, and turn it into a wedding venue of dreams. Helen was unsure at first, as anyone would be, but six days later she moved into Rise Hall with just a computer and a suitcase. What she has accomplished is quite frankly astonishing, or it would be if it wasn’t the result of sheer graft and determination. Because that’s the real reason Rise Hall is now a top wedding venue and hotel, hosting around 40 weddings a year – Helen quite simply worked her arse off. Her talk provided inspiration in bucket-loads and you could tell there was a buzz amongst the guests once she’d finished.

Next up, couture dress designer Anita Massarella. Now, let me tell you, this woman has a wicked sense of humour! – she had us all in absolute stitches! She’s a fantastic speaker and storyteller, and you want her to keep reeling off amazing anecdotes all day! She happened to mention that she had designed a wardrobe for Margaret Thatcher and I swear every single jaw in the audience dropped. Imagine being able to say that?! Anita also brought along some of her stunning dresses, and it’s not hard for one second to see why people pay the prices they do for Anita’s designs. To put it simply – they are bloody gorgeous! Anita is one of the most focussed and driven people you could hope to meet, and I’m very glad I got the chance.

Kylie Carlson, Director and Founder of The Wedding Academy rounded up the inspirational talks. I was really intrigued to hear Kylie speak because I’d already heard what a charismatic and engaging speaker she is, and she did not disappoint. I even lent over to Pam during Kylie’s talk to comment on what a ‘ball-buster’ she is, because when Kylie sets her mind to something – she achieves it. She doesn’t let anything stand in her way, and if there is an obstacle of some sort then she quickly susses out the most efficient way around it and achieves her goal. Which is why it’s not hard to see why The Wedding Academy has received the international acclaim it has. With Kylie at the helm how could it have achieved anything less?

That rounded up the morning’s events, and as the guests seated themselves at the table for lunch, the suppliers quickly headed off to the bar for a well-deserved glass of vino and a bit of a chin-wag. You just can’t beat it on a summer’s day! I did ask the guests how they enjoyed their food though, and I was met with lots of faces that resembled the heart-eyed emoji. However, with this being an industry event, it’s safe to say that this bunch of lovelies enjoyed the networking opportunity just as much as the food!

The afternoon kicked back off with a floral styling demonstration, from florist support on the event – Jade from Flowers By Jade. I think the guests were a bit disbelieving when it was explained to them that Jade was going to demonstrate how they could recreate a very similar centrepiece to those on display, at home, however her easy way of explaining things made us all realise that it’s actually possible. That’s the great thing about Jade; she’s down-to-earth, she’s bubbly and she’s very approachable. I find flowers quite daunting, because there are so many different types and I can never remember their names let alone their appropriate seasons. But Jade put us all at ease with her demonstration, and then it was time for everyone to try out these tips and tricks by styling their own greenery display in a gorgeous white vase. Bonus – they got to take it home too. And there were some absolutely fabulous creations!

Once everyone had arranged their own floral display, and after a very inspirational note to end on from the woman herself – Pam, it was time for mojitos and a dessert table selection to wind down the afternoon. One way to move 24 women into another room fast is to mention ‘cocktails and cake’, just FYI. It was so lovely to see everyone chatting to the people who they’d met during the day, swapping Instagram handles and friending each other on Facebook, especially as many of them had turned up alone without knowing anyone else.

I couldn’t believe how fast the day had flown by when everyone started coming to say thank you and goodbye, laden with the luxury goody bags stuffed full of treats. I met some truly wonderful people who I know I will stay in touch with, and it was definitely a sentiment that I could see a lot of people shared. There was such a positive tingle in the air come 4:00pm that day. It’s like when you’re little and you go to a children’s party – you’ve had the best time playing with all of your friends and you’re so chock-full of sugar that you genuinely feel that life is better than it ever has been, and you can’t wait for tomorrow. That’s the feeling that the Luxury Stylist Retreat gave me. And with a conclusion like that, you can’t possibly tell me that you don’t want to come to Sydney and do it with us all over again? I’ll see you down under. G’day Mate.

A fabulous day and a wonderful article, thank you Charlotte. I’ll finish with the highlights from the day by hugely talented photographer Soniya Zeb, including the super stylish gold foil stationery suite from The Golden Letter, gold chargers, tableware and glassware from luxury event hire company Whitehouse Crockery, all styled to perfection by Rebecca from Pop Up Weddings and Charlotte of course from Redamancy.

Boho Woodland Bridal Styling

“I suddenly said to my wife: “we’re terribly dull people, let’s travel around the world and then we shall have something to talk about”.

Natural boho bridal bouquet

Burnby Hall Gardens, a classic estate nestled in the surroundings of the East Yorkshire town of Pocklington, provided the backdrop for this gorgeous collaborative wedding shoot. With a set of supremely talented contributors, the shoot was a boho wedding dream: making use of the magnificent natural landscape, combining them with whimsical floating dresses and soft hair and make up. The result is a true bridal fairytale.

In line with Major Percy Stewart (the original owner of Burnby Hall)’s vision, to travel the world with his wife and have something to talk about, this wedding inspiration shoot is definitely not one to keep quiet about. The colour palette of natural greens, browns, and white, lends understated elegance. Pamella Dunn’s bridal bouquet, a sumptuous arrangement of David Austin roses and leafy foliage, highlights the beauty of dark green as a feature colour. Her styling—including hanging tealight bubbles, macramé plant pots, a carnival-style gold star and a feature mirror—gives the impression of an exquisitely preserved whole other world that we’ve just stumbled upon.

The wedding dresses were kindly loaned by destination boutique The Bridal Collection in Harrogate, both featuring stunning bodices with lace detailing, and uncomplicated skirts which flowed beautifully, pooling to the ground. Layered pendant jewellery really gave the boho vibe its edge, wonderfully complimented by hair and makeup by the amazingly talented Megan Green. Tousled tresses and deep lip colours gave the brides an effortless carefree edge: a perfect look.

Creative Yorkshire photographer Jamie Sia’s photography tells the story of a perfectly conserved whimsical wonderland, unspoilt by fuss and spilling over with simplistic beauty. Striking images of the beautiful models Emily and Jazzmin, and featured shots of every single thread woven together to make this masterpiece a reality: now we have something to truly talk about.

Author: Eleanor Kime

Thank you so much Ellie for writing a gorgeous article, this was a fabulous shoot with a wonderful team of professional Yorkshire wedding industry experts. I love the travel adventure inspiration, and creating woodland wedding magic and a beautiful natural wedding bouquet was a perfect project for me.

We know wedding planning is exciting and unbelievably time consuming too. We often meet our lovely clients when they are drowning under wedmin or balancing too many suppliers booked too soon in the process as they are cry “I wish we had found you sooner!” The business of wedding planning is shrouded in myth and folklore so this week we shone a little light on how it all works and updated the website with pricing and services, posting transparent costs and details of what you can expect.

Boutique Wedding Planning. A professional wedding planner for when you really need it. Further details and easy pricing on line.

It’s true, hiring a wedding planner is not just for celebrities and the rich and famous. There are many services you can take advantage of, saving you time and money whilst still planning your own special celebrations. Planning a wedding in the UK offers couples a magical choice of alternatives and has not traditionally included a Wedding Planner but all this is beginning to change. As experienced professionals we know how stressful wedding planning can be, and how time consuming and budget busting too. With so many considerations no one anticipates, including the balancing of family and friends expectations, not to mention managing a team of suppliers as your wedding approaches. It really is no wonder that by the time the day arrives it passes in a blur.

Our latest client wedding Venue Search took us to Cheshire and across Yorkshire to find the perfect exclusive use luxury venue with accommodation. The clients brief was relaxed but historical, a party house but with fine dining, champagne and good wine. Somewhere so special, with a caring professional team that could host the ceremony & up to 150 guests for the wedding breakfast. I am thrilled and delighted to have found the one that they both just fell in love with. Full details and pricing on line for our Venue Search service.

 

Savvy couples know that time is precious and that like any other professional service hiring an experienced wedding planner is an investment that can often pay for itself. We know that finding the perfect venue when so many are hidden gems isn’t a one weekend job, that a few venues may have little or no flexibility, and occasionally may have clauses or restrictions that are hidden in the small print.

Brought to you by The Wedding Affair last month we were at one of the most exclusive wedding venues in Yorkshire, Goldsborough Hall with its elegant state rooms, luxury accommodation and stunning landscaped grounds you cannot help but fall in love. Did you see us there? Our floating candle centrepiece, shimmering gold sequin tablecloth and twinkling gold candle lit votives were hugely popular with visitors.

The escort tree with hanging crystals and candle lit baubles offered a pretty alternative to a seating plan. Just one of the many ways hiring a Wedding Planner and Designer can add value to your celebrations. Read more in the article Should I Hire A Wedding Planner.

Should I Hire A Wedding Planner?

5 key questions:

Yorkshire wedding planning, Yorkshire Wedding Coordination, Yorkshire Wedding Day Management
Pamella Dunn

Where you begin your personal wedding planning journey really depends on how you visualise your marriage taking shape. Most of us live in an era where we struggle to find extra hours as we rush from one demand on our precious time to another, where often just finding time to even think about what you might like for your significant celebration is tricky.  Consider this short list and step into the magical world of wedding planning confident you are heading in the right direction.

  • Have you chosen a date, place and venue?
  • Have you a budget you will work to?
  • Are you a creative looking to DIY your wedding, with support from family & friends?
  • Do you need help with the design and styling?
  • Do you need help with the administration, the coordination and on the day management?
  • Have you identified key suppliers who you can work with?

These considerations will help you highlight where you will want additional support, advice and guidance. The answers will be quite different for every couple but using the services of experienced professional planners for all or part of the above will allow you those moments to reflect and take in the whole experience confident in the knowledge you are in safe hands.

Shortlist planners who fit your brief and arrange a consultation. These are invariably complimentary and will give you a good idea if you are a good fit. Personality, compatibility and a good close working relationship will be vital. An experienced planner will have all the answers, and more that arise during this exciting time, and will often not only be the planner, but your designer and stylist too. They will save you hours of research and add value to your budget. Their advice and support will be invaluable, they will be the calming confidant, fully understanding how you are feeling at each stage. They will be inspiring and thought provoking, discussing ideas with you that have meaning to you both as you celebrate your love for each other.

Your Wedding Planner Does More Than Just Wedding Planning

As the considerations are seemingly endless the earlier you discuss your plans with a professional the less likely you are to encounter any issues that were so important to you. These could be restrictions at your venue that don’t allow naked flames or even insisting on their preferred suppliers, it could be crazy weather, your timings, the additional costs that squeeze your budget or noise restrictions that exclude your favourite band. Saving precious time early in the process could be the best wedding decision you make.

Design & Styling

And one of the best pieces of advice I could give would be to carefully consider any decision to style your own wedding. It is an exciting time and if you are a creative with passion and vision for how your wedding will look I know you will be tempted to enlist the help of your bridal party to place your pretty details in your beautiful venue. You will want to oversee the proceedings whilst liaising with your hand picked suppliers, but the reality is you rarely have the time and your photographer and hair and makeup team will be calling you. Your closest friends and family will want to shower you with love and attention, and you will feel under pressure. A talented team of stylists will bring calm and joy to your most memorable of occasions. Enjoy this magical time and don’t be afraid to ask for expert advice.

Looking forward to hearing from you x
