Meet Joanna

I believe that joy lies at the heart of any celebration, whether what you’re celebrating is a marriage, a milestone birthday, an anniversary or a long overdue gathering of the people you love. However, when it comes to putting together that celebration and keeping all of the many plates spinning, that sense of joy can quickly give way to overwhelm. As your dedicated wedding and events planner, it’s my job to take on the mantle of administration, organisation and creative guidance. I’ll make sure that every last logistical cog in this beautiful machine is well-oiled and running smoothly, leaving you with the fun bits!

Conceptualising and bringing together fabulous, immersive events has been a huge part of my life for many years. I used to work in London, planning dinners, events and spectacular balls for members of the Bar and Judiciary. But I’m a romantic at heart, and I think I’ve always known that using my events planning skills to help tell people’s love stories was what I was meant to do.

My style

I’m a mix of the city and the country. Having lived in London for 12 years, its buzz and sparkle really got under my skin, but the green fields, woodlands and pretty villages of Oxfordshire are where I feel most at home. I love a big city day out, or perhaps a night at the theatre, but let me have my wellies and my Labradors and a great big muddy walk amid the trees and the birdsong afterwards, please!

It’s this mix of contemporary elegance with quintessential English country garden gorgeousness that I bring to the weddings and events I plan – helping you to create a calm countryside oasis with touches of city chic, sophistication and flair.

So many romantic possibilities…

Every wedding is unique, and what will elevate it out of the ‘seen before’ is the personal touches and thoughtful details that we interweave through the décor and atmosphere of the day. However, there are certain signature elements of a quintessentially English country wedding that never fail to bring me joy.

Picture this:

Stunning photo backdrops brought to you by Mother Nature herself

Soft, abundant florals and pale puddles of sun

Centuries old stonework in gold and russet

A marquee glowing softly in manicured gardens that feels like it’s a little universe built just for you and the people you love…

If you’re ready to start planning your timeless, thoughtful wedding celebration; or looking for a party with personality and spark, then I’d love to hear from you.
