The wedding of Tom and Hannah took place at the beautiful University of Oxford’s Bodleian Library in November 2014.
With a stunningly creative Autumnal design brief and a plethora of moments, ideas and entertainment that were important and unique to the couple, this was a fabulous Bodleian Library wedding.
We were delighted to receive this wonderful feedback from Tom and Hannah about our assistance in the coordination of their Bodleian Library wedding:
“We’re really glad that you enjoyed working with us! You always seemed to be very happy, but it’s very nice to know that wasn’t just your impeccable business manner. We’ve sent you something as a small token of our appreciation, which will hopefully be with you very soon (if not already).
It’s very difficult to provide useful feedback: that normally implies that you’d like to know how you could improve – and I’m not sure that there was anything you did that we could say needs improvement. What we can do is make a list of some of the things with which we were particularly happy, which will hopefully be useful in letting you know what to keep on doing (assuming you work with other people like us!).
- We were very happy that you gave us room to organize the events we wanted in the way that we wanted, and that you didn’t try to force extra ‘help’ on us – the few other coordinators at whom we looked were clear that they wanted to take over completely from the moment they were hired, and you were completely sensitive to our wishes to keep going with the planning ourselves. You simply offered very valuable help with logistics where appropriate, and certainly when we needed it.
- We were very impressed with the way you marshalled the vendors on site, getting people to do the things that we felt would be awkward to ask of them.
- We felt that the amount of contact you maintained with us both throughout the evening was perfectly judged: interacting with us only when absolutely necessary allowing us to enjoy the day – we really liked your method of letting us know you wished to talk to us without interrupting our conversations.
- From our first meeting, it was very clear that we could leave things to you and not worry about them. This meant that, we assume, we never heard about a lot of the things we imagine you must have done, simply because you did them so well! Nevertheless, we had every confidence that we would be able to leave at the end of the night, knowing that things would be taken care of and that all interested parties would be happy. It was great that you were able to instill such confidence in both your abilities and your professionalism right from the beginning.
We have told so many of our friends and family that deciding to work with you was the best decision we have made during the organization of our wedding, and we absolutely stick by that. It could have been a nightmare without you!
We can’t thank you enough for making our wedding what it was – without a shadow of a doubt, we’ve agreed, hiring you was the single best decision we made! You were so calm, soothing and capable that we had absolute trust in you for the whole time. And I can’t tell you how great it was to find someone who was happy to do what we wanted, rather than trying to change our day! You were a complete delight, and a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much! Love Hannah and Tom”.
