FOR END-TO-END SERVICE:
There are three different services on offer here. The Hired Love option allows brides to hire pieces from the company’s existing collection to add style and atmosphere to their event, or you can choose the Styled Love service where they will work directly with you to plan the look of your event – then install the décor and furniture. Finally, the Total Love service calls on the Hire Love team to plan, co-ordinate and style your entire day, bringing together all of your suppliers so you have complete peace of mind.
FOR INTERNATIONAL WEDDINGS:
Loli comes highly recommended by SL bride Jewelle – who was planning a French wedding from her home in New York. With office on both sides of the Atlantic, Loli will help you design an event that looks and feels like you. Its services cover everything from full planning to consulting, including styling services if you just need a bit of help bringing all the elements together. Everyone who works there is bilingual, so they can help you smooth out the lines of communication.
FOR ON-THE-DAY SETUP & STYLING:
SL bride Joey used Annie to help her style her Salcombe wedding and couldn’t praise her more highly. As an art director and stylist, her services are more suited to on-the-day setup – perfect if you’re looking after most of the décor yourself and just want someone to help you on the morning of or day before. With a style that’s best described as rustic and perfectly undone, Annie would make the ideal choice for English country weddings taking place this summer.
FOR ATTENTION TO DETAIL:
Because it’s been used by the likes of Soho House, Daylesford and Claridge’s, you can be sure you’re in safe hands with Studio Sorores. Founded by award-winning event planner and designer Jessie Westwood in 2010, it creates destination weddings and events across the world. Entertainment is a speciality – so if you’re looking for memorable ways to finish the evening, Jessie’s your girl.

Blue Strawberry/Table Talk
Blue Strawberry is one of the most established names in the UK catering space – you may recognise the name given its associations with Pippa Middleton and party planning sister company Table Talk. Blue Strawberry’s speciality is food – so it can take care of the catering, while Table Talk brings all the other elements together.
