Why should I use a wedding planner, when I can do it all myself?
Weddings are among the most beautiful, yet most stressful events we have in our lives. So why not invite a professional to lend a hand? Planning a wedding takes an incredible amount of time, especially if you want it done right. Wedding planners know the industry and the local wedding suppliers. Having a wedding planner is like having a personal assistant who is there to do all of the calling, ordering, and looking after details that you may not have time to do.
If I book a free consultation am I obliged to sign a contract?
No – Your first consultation is completely free and you have no obligation to sign an agreement with us. However at the end of the consultation we will ask you if you would like us to plan your wedding for you and then if you do want us to go ahead we will get you to sign a contract.
How much time is required to plan the average wedding?
The wedding industry standard is approximately 250 hours to arrange the average wedding. This includes research, planning, booking and finalising everything. However if you do not have the experience this can be far greater and take up all your spare waking hours.
I don’t know where to start?
This is what we do best. Once you book a free consultation, we will sit down with you and work out exactly what you would like on your special day and once you sign an agreement with us, we will then go through preparing a budget and working with you to ensure that your special day goes exactly as planned.
Will I be free to make my own choices?
The final decision is always yours. We will give you options and will talk with you often, however as you pay the bills the final decision is always yours.
When should I arrange my free consultation?
As soon as possible, whether you are getting married in a couple of weeks or a couple of years, arrange for a free consultation now and we will start the planning process.
We are on a tight budget. Can you help us?
Definitely. We are happy to work with all budgets, we would love to sit down with you and work through your ideas, please just give me a call.
Do you offer packages?
We do have packages available, however, we will usually tailor each package to suit your specific needs as we realise our clients are all unique and so too is your wedding day.
What is the maximum number of guests you can cater for?
No wedding is too large or too small; the team at Sophisticated Weddings will work with you to plan your special day no matter the size or style of your wedding.

Do I need a permit to have a beach or garden wedding ceremony?
