Kind Words

A handful of love notes from some of the wonderful Bijou brides and grooms I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

So perfect…

Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding so perfect. It was exactly what we wanted and it would not have been what it was without you - M+G

Amazing…

Alex was amazing. Without her, we really would have struggled to get things done, and get things done as well as she did. She completely stuck to timelines, helped us make decision and even solved a massive problem we had on the day (Beer kegs turning up without the equipment to open them and immediately bought the German Beer we wanted from another shop). She introduced us to people she knew that could help, gave us advice when it came to photography, design, DJ etc. I can't say enough how much it is worth getting a Wedding Planner, and would strongly encourage getting Alex!.

Organized, creative, warm…

Alex provided the framework for what needed to happen & thought of little details I never would have considered to make our day special & relaxing.  She handled everything from planning the whole day for us when I was so busy at work I barely had time to check my email, to bringing in other necessary vendors, to keeping me company while I got my hair & makeup done since I didn't bring any friends or family with me, to even walking in front of me when I left the hotel in my dress because I was embarrassed to get stared at by all the people in the hotel lobby. Alex is professional, incredibly organized, creative, warm, kind & well connected in this industry. - J+J

Phenomenal wedding planner…

Where do I start. You essentially figured me out and stepped up to plan my dream wedding without me really knowing what my dream wedding even looked like. I will be eternally grateful for everything you pulled off to make our big day so absolutely stunning and effortless (on our part). Thank you for being a phenomenal wedding planner and an incredible person. - J+D

Stress free…

Alex is the best, hands down. I remember first meeting her and after one hour, she already fully understood our personality and what we’d want for our wedding. Throughout the planning process she kept everything stress free so that we could really enjoy the lead up to the wedding. I don’t think it would have been the same without her at all and I don’t know how anyone can plan a wedding without Alex! The day itself was perfect and again, it was all down to how much we knew it would be all we wanted because of Alex’s involvement. Thank you for making our perfect day just the way we imagined it! - M+A

Total superstar…

If I can give any newly engaged couples one piece of advice, it would be to book Alex right away! We brought Alex in part way through our planning process and my only regret is not starting to work with her sooner. She spent time getting to know us and understand our vision for what was a fairly untraditional wedding. Where we needed pointing in the right direction she was full of ideas and recommendations, all of which we took gratefully. As we crept ever closer to the big day we left more and more in her capable hands. She seemed entirely relaxed and un-phased which helped to chill us out too! On the day she was not only in complete control but she was a wonderful emotional support to us both. Couldn’t have done it (and wouldn’t have wanted to do it) without her; she’s a total superstar. - L+J

Total marvel…

The best decision I ever made, after deciding to get married of course, was to have Alex plan our wedding. She is a total marvel; from the moment I met her she understood immediately what kind of thing we wanted, she listened to us at every turn, handled every difficult conversation, took away all the stresses, negotiated all the logistics and brought to the whole thing her extraordinary creative flair. She is utterly unflappable and oversaw every detail, from budget, to supplier, venue, right down to the candle sizes! There is no way we could have done it without her and I recommend her unreservedly. - K+M

Perfect balance…

I honestly don't know where to start when it comes to Alex. She has the perfect balance of playful creativity, endless patience, and insane organisational skills the likes of which I've never experienced before. I learned pretty quickly that planning a wedding is a non-stop onslaught of details that I never knew I cared about. Alex will do as much or as little as you want (I ended up wanting her to do everything because she has much better ideas than me). She gave advice and always stepped in when I needed her. She anticipated all problems before they happened. She was there as a sounding board when I needed help figuring out what was what. In the midst of planning, I can imagine it's easy to forget that ultimately a wedding is a party with everyone you love -- which is pretty much the coolest thing ever. Alex made sure we could enjoy it. A lot. And everyone else did too. I give her million out of five stars. - C+D

Best decision…

Whilst a wedding planner can sound pretentious, it was the best decision we could have made - and the fact we found Alex was the icing on the cake. With my husband's big picture ideas to my fine detail obsession Alex managed to strike the right balance, and we wouldn't have had the day we had without her, and I am still in awe of our big day... and what she pulled together. The amount of compliments have been insane! Wedding planning comes with its various pressures and stresses even until the end of the actual big day, however, having ever confidence in Alex I managed to enjoy every second.  She has a personal demeanour that some lack, you feel you have a friend in her - which is exactly what you need.

Gentle precision…

You held my hand and managed the day with such gentle precision from the major planning to the tiniest detail, it was just perfectly orchestrated. Words cannot actually describe how deeply grateful I will always be. - S+E

A godsend…

Alex of The Bijou Bride is a godsend. I did a lot of research and she is honestly the best decision I made in the entire process. We worked together for well over a year and it felt like having the world’s most informed BFF at my side. She is not only likeable, kind and lovely but perceptive, creative and bang-on at her job. - N+W
