Why I only book eight weddings a year: A commitment to excellence

by | 18 January



Hello, lovely readers! It’s Jo here from Joanna Wilford Weddings, your trusted luxury wedding planner in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, and the Cotswolds. Today, I want to share a little secret about my approach to wedding planning that sets me apart in this industry: I only book 8 weddings a year. While some may wonder why I limit my workload, I’m here to tell you that it’s all about ensuring a truly exceptional experience for every couple, and cherishing the time I have with my family and walking our excitable labradors Margot and Eliza.


Getting to Know You: 

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and I believe in giving it the attention it deserves. By limiting the number of weddings I take on, I can truly invest the time and effort to get to know each couple on a personal level. This allows me to understand your unique vision, preferences, and dreams, ensuring that your wedding day reflects your love story in every detail.


Dedication and Attention 

Every wedding is a unique masterpiece, and I’m committed to making each one exceptional. By keeping my workload manageable, I can dedicate myself fully to your wedding, from the initial concept to the final execution. I want to ensure that every aspect of your celebration is meticulously planned and executed to perfection, leaving you with nothing to worry about except enjoying your special day.

Balancing Work and Family

While I’m deeply passionate about creating magical weddings, I also value the importance of family and personal time. Limiting my bookings to 8 weddings a year allows me to strike a healthy work-life balance. This ensures that I have the time and energy to spend with my loved ones, including my family and, of course, my beloved dogs, who are a big part of my life.


At Joanna Wilford Weddings, it’s not just about planning weddings; it’s about crafting unforgettable experiences that celebrate your love story. By booking a limited number of weddings each year, I can provide the dedicated attention and care that every couple deserves. Whether your dream wedding is nestled in the picturesque Oxfordshire countryside, the charming Northamptonshire villages, or the romantic Cotswolds, I am here to bring your vision to life.

So, if you’re looking for a wedding planner who will treat your special day as if it were her own, look no further. I invite you to explore my portfolio and discover the magic that can be created when we embark on this journey together. Your dream wedding awaits, and I can’t wait to make it a reality.
