Wedding Planning

East London Circus Festival Drag Queen Foodie Wedding

There's nothing I love more than a wedding with a twist. Make it personal and fun I say! Ruth & Nico came to me at the end of last year - they had big visions for their day and needed help putting it all together. For starters, they didn't have a venue. After several days of venue viewings, we settled on Core Clapton. Lovely new versatile space in East London. 

Lots of fun planning with these two and the end result was totally personal to them as a couple. A mix of circus, rustic, East London, French & Irish. We had colourful, tasty travel inspired sharing food, drag queen performer (such a hit!), surreal croquembouche wedding cake, adult size ball pond and I kick ass brass band and DJ to finish. 

We would like to give you a massive thank you for all your efforts and everything you have been doing before and during the day. The result was beyond our expectation and you definitely helped us to achieve how we wanted it to happen, it was perfect!!

Foodie Stylish Relaxed Colourful Winter South London Wedding

Wow, it's taken me a while to get around to blog about this wedding. Back from Feb and my last event at Brixton East - my spiritual event home. Such great memories from this gem of a venue. Sad to see it go, but pleased to finish on such a high! 

What a joy it was to work with Rachel & Jack! They trusted me to deliver their vision in full and helped them put their dream day together. Read their testimonial below which says it much better than me. Thanks to my brilliant team and suppliers working hard on the day xxx                                                                                                 

Hi Dita, just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for helping us transform our ideas into reality, and for your (not insignificant) part in creating the wedding we envisaged.
From the day we met you after falling in love with Brixton East, we both knew you were exactly who we needed on our team!! 
You understood implicitly what we meant when we said we didn’t want our day to be too ‘weddingy’, and guided us through the potentially daunting world of a dry hire wedding with such expertise, that all notions of stress were taken away!                                                  
Whilst we maintained total creative control (something incredibly important to us as we wanted our wedding to reflect us) your partial planning service saved us from hours of googling and hassle, and resulted in you finding us the most incredible chef, who couldn’t have met our brief any better (literally the best food I’ve ever eaten and a view echoed by all our guests).                                                                                                                                
It also took away the need for us to organise the bar or staff (jobs we didn’t really want!!), and again resulted in the most professional, brilliant team looking after us on the day, with fab service from beginning to end.                                                                                                
You were always available, but never pushy (no mad wedding planner vibes here!!!), and having you around to co-ordinate deliveries and suppliers on both the prep day and the wedding day meant that everything flowed seamlessly and we honestly didn’t have to worry about a single thing except for getting married and enjoying ourselves (which we did immensely!!!) We literally couldn’t have created such a smooth running, relaxed, perfect wedding without you, so thanks a million!! Keep doing what you’re doing! 

Lots of love,
Rachel and Jack xxxxxx

Beer-tastic Winter East London Pub Destination Wedding

Claire & Phil came to me in a bit of a pickle. Their first venue of choice had cancelled on them and they were about to leave the country to start up life in Vancouver, Canada. Eek!

The wedding was to be in 6 months! Help! Sure thing. Found them a brilliant new venue within a couple of days and a fun beer-tastic winter wedding was had. 

Less involvement from me as it not being a dry hire venue but with Claire & Phil all the way in Vancouver they really valued that they had a trusted professional on the ground in London. X

Thank you so much Dita- it was amaaaaaazing!!!!

We really could not have done it without you and we certainly wouldn’t have had anywhere near as much fun!

Can’t quite believe it’s over!

All the best C&P xxx

Airstream Pub-tastic Drag Queen Fun Brixton Wedding

What I love about weddings is the sense of FUN my couples have and bring to the day. And no one have more fun together and with their friends and family than Gem & Mike. These two are a not stop laughing duo ... and boy was their wedding back in Feb (before snowmageddon!) one of the best. It had it all! Beautiful venue, great tasting food and drink and a full on drag queen DJ. They are still talking about this one xx

"From day 1, Dita was amazing in helping us to plan and co-ordinate our wedding day. From our first meeting (when we suddenly realised we actually didn't know where to start with a dry hire venue!) and in the build up to the big day- she was a font of knowledge and  inspired ideas- helping us navigate all the intricacies required with a sense of calm, yet the perfect amount of excitement that comes with planning a wedding! The day itself was INCREDIBLE, and we still have people saying it's the best wedding they've ever been to. There is no way we could have pulled off the day we had without Dita's skill, planning and direction, and it really was the Best Day Ever........"

Fun-tastic Graffiti Backdrop Brixton Summer Wedding

I loved nothing more than working with couples where the brief is just a lot of FUN. These guys knew what they wanted... a real memorable day with their closest friends and family in an urban setting. Something very different from the traditional weddings setup. They found exactly what they were after in amazing Brixton East 1871. Saturday in Brixton means market and buzzing street life. Love that they brought this local flavour into their wedding pictures.
