Top UK wedding stylists and planners

For the second round of this series, I’m going to have a look at wedding planners and stylists. You may not understand why anyone would need a wedding stylist – and these women are here to tell you why. They will help you have a wedding that goes smoothly, with recommended and trusted suppliers, and they will help you bring your vision to life. Some people will tell you you don’t need one – and the thing is, you don’t need anything when it comes to your wedding, apart from your partner and a registry office. Yes, everything in wedding is a plus – so it is all up to you to know what is important and what isn’t. I didn’t have a wedding stylist or planner but I do regret not having a hand setting up my venue – half of the stuff I made didn’t end up being used because I just didn’t have the time to put them up! RIP all to all those origami cranes who never saw the venue…

Jess is the queen of boho and spiritual weddings and specialises in crystals. I’ve worked with her on three occasions and cannot wait to work with her again – she is incredibly sweet and talented and makes everyone feel like her best friend. (Plus she is vegan!) She is based in Essex.

Apologies for the long list… I hoped to not go beyond 10 but I don’t think that’s possible. I already had to not write about such incredible and talented women, it kind of broke my heart! A bit terrified about the florists list, that one will be soul-destroying.

Enjoy your Sunday evening, and don’t forget to tell people how awesome they are!
