Oxfordshire Wedding Planner
For lovers of luxury
ORGANISER, STRESS RELIEVER AND CREATOR OF HAPPINESS COVERING OXFORDSHIRE AND THE COTSWOLDS
Welcome to Katie Lou Weddings, a bespoke wedding planning service for modern, busy couples dreaming of a timeless and elegant wedding which is true reflection of them as a couple.
From exclusive hire stately homes and country retreats to dry hire historic venues, Oxford colleges and luxury marquees at home. I'm here to ensure your wedding is seamless, your wedding planning is fun and that ultimately you have your wedding, your way.
Wedding planning tailored to you
Whether you’re seeking support from the very beginning of your planning journey, or you’re looking for someone you can trust in the final stages, I am here to provide assistance that's tailored to your needs. I understand that no two weddings are the same so ensure all three of my wedding planning packages are flexible to each couple's individual needs and preferences. No problem is too big, no detail too small and nothing more important than giving you the day you dream of.
I've had owls deliver the wedding rings, cakes cut with axes and surprise ceremony flash mobs so certainly no stranger to bringing unique requests to life and creating new traditions.
WEDDING PLANNING SERVICES
Hello! I'm Katie,
and I’ll be your right-hand woman throughout your wedding planning process. I started my career in large-scale events and festivals, before training as a wedding planner with the UKAWP in 2010. Now, I get to turn my creativity, eye for detail and logistical mind to celebrating the most important things in life everyday.
It’s important to me to get to know you as a couple, so that I can make sure I’m creating the day you have your heart set on – whether you already know what that looks like, or whether you’d like us to work that out together. Your passions and personality will be at the heart of our planning process. I’ll help you get crystal clear on your wedding visions, alleviating every stress from your plate and freeing up your time. This way, you can focus on marrying your best friend, enjoying every second of your special day and celebrating with your favourite people on the planet.
DELIGHTED TO BE FEATURED ON
Always prioritising my values
As the oldest of four and part of a big family, spending time with the people I care about means a lot to me. That’s why I love weddings: they gather families together and I love to fill the room with love and laughter while creating happy memories. Everything I do is for my two daughters: they’re my why and the reason I do what I do.
I love to encourage couples to tear up the wedding rule book and express their personalities in their wedding. When you feel bound by traditions, expectations, the shoulds and the shouldn'ts is when you run the risk of not enjoying the day you’ve worked so hard for. It’s your wedding, your way.
I hone in on all of the details, big and small, so that you can relax and enjoy your wedding day. Coordinating everyone behind the scenes, anticipating potential problems, having plans A, B, C and D to ensure everyone is looked after – it’s all in the organisation.
My work would be nothing without my couples! I work in partnership with you, guiding and advising but never dictating, giving you the space to make decisions, having open conversations and keeping you in the loop. This takes the pressure and stress away, while making you still feel like you’re involved and excited.
