“There is no greater burden than carrying an untold story.” – Maya Angelou
Welcome to my journal. Here, you will find actual diary entries chartering the life and experiences of a busy Wedding Planner. I’ll introduce you to the talented people I meet, reflect on actual weddings I’ve planned and share real issues, experiences and lessons learned as well as wedding planning wisdom and inspirational ideas. This is my story and I am privileged to share it with you.
Helen and Sam - York Minster, Saturday 4 May 2013
Helen and Sam got married at the beginning of May in the stunning surroundings of York Minster and celebrated afterwards with their families and friends in a giant Yurt, situated in the grounds of Helen’s parents’ home. As you can see from these gorgeous images captured on the day by Jon Dennis of S6 Photography, it was a joyous occasion and one which I was extremely proud to play a part in.
“I think it’s fair to say your wedding day is the biggest day of your life but when we set out on our wedding planning journey I was quietly confident I’d easily be able to do it all on my own, apart perhaps from a little help here and there….. how very wrong was I??!
With a very full time job and all the little fun and games the glossy wedding magazines fail to mention, I turned into one stressed out bride. But then came along Helen Davies.
Helen is calm, highly professional, has a solution for every problem, isn’t too ‘weddingy’ (which believe me we were a little worried about) but most importantly she brought calm, order, solutions and a reassuring voice that was always at the end of the phone (even if she’s riding her horse she always picks up).
Our wedding day was a resounding success that very much was a day both my husband and I had planned but what Helen did behind the scenes made it spectacular and we will forever be grateful to her. We genuinely can’t recommend her enough.
Helen is quite simply a superstar.” Helen and Sam Pullan.
I am extremely proud to have been awarded entire management responsibility of Sarah Beeny’s luxury wedding venue, Rise Hall and look forward to planning many beautiful weddings there.
“From the warm welcome she extends to each and every prospective client, to the meticulous way in which she oversees the co-ordination of each event, Helen has proven that she is more than capable of taking on what is for us, an incredibly important role – she is precisely the host Rise Hall deserves.”

“We simply cannot recommend Helen highly enough. If you want to remove the maximum amount of stress from your wedding, whilst retaining the maximum amount of freedom to create your vision, and benefiting from lots of experience, recommended suppliers and trade knowledge, then you need look no further than Helen to deliver all of this and more! If you don’t book her, someone else will. An absolute super star, we love her to bits!”
