'A fantastic job’
"Hansley Beard provided on-the-day coordination for our wedding. It was wonderful seeing everything we had envisioned and discussed being created so perfectly. Hansley Beard has an absolutely unique style that works so perfectly for vintage weddings. They did a fantastic job coordinating suppliers and dealing with any issues that arose on the day.” Blanche and Richard @ Wood Lane Countryside Centre
‘Full of heart’
"The service provided by Hansley Beard is exceptional; it is full of heart and passion." Naomi and Chris @ Millennium Galleries
‘Above and beyond the call of duty’
"Because we’d chosen to have the reception at home rather than at a hired venue, we needed someone to manage the day for us, from the reception onwards, which was a huge undertaking. Hansley Beard took on the challenge brilliantly. Using ethically sourced materials was so important to us. Hansley Beard was fantastic at finding all sorts of options for us to choose from, and excellent at turning our vague ideas into gorgeous reality! Every single step of the way, Hansley Beard went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure we had everything we’d dreamed of." Alyx and Jonny @ Bride’s Parents Garden
“Wedding planning is like a fractal – the deeper you delve into it, the more decisions present themselves. Jennie was in regular communications with us to confirm decisions and to ask us about further details”. Viv and Matt @ Walkey Community Centre
'Listened to what I wanted'
“Jennie's warmth and creativity is coupled with an organised and practical mind. She listened to what I wanted, understood exactly what I was looking for and helped me to refine and improve on my ideas”. Kate and James @ The Maynard
‘Everything was in hand’
"Having Jennie there to oversee the look and feel of the wedding meant that we knew what our budget was at all times, and that we could always discuss different options while keeping on top of our spending. If I had to summarise the day in one word it would be ‘carefree’, but it was so well planned that it ran very smoothly. We got married on the Sunday, but having Jennie and her team there meant that I knew everything was in hand, so I could just have fun with friends all weekend." Katie and Jon @ Chatsworth House
"We wanted a wedding that matched who we are, so knew it needed to be informal, creative, warm and fun. We also had a limited budget to work to. I was also keen on little touches, which I got in with Jennie’s help. It is a testament to Jennie that she stays in the background and quickly gets things done with no fuss, no drama, just perfect ease." Sara and Dave @ Weston Park Bandstand
'Gave me the reassurance'
“My daughter's wedding was 11 weeks away.We knew who was coming and the service was booked in at the Town Hall.The perfect dress was in the wardrobe. Sarah and Nick, based in Hastings, were delighted with the venue for their wedding party - the Chimney House at Kelham Island. I seriously believed we were almost there, until I started to write a long to-do list. I immediately realised that I needed help and asked Jennie if we could meet for a troubleshooting consultation. I went along with my enormous list and then Jennie gently, but firmly, took me back a few steps to find out exactly what I was looking for - the details and nuances that would make the day unforgettable. She then asked me about all sorts of practical things we hadn't even considered - how the day would be timetabled, who would do what etc. She gave me a blueprint for how the day could work! I think Jennie understands what a wedding means to everyone involved ... both the big picture and the details. More than anything, she gave me the reassurance that we would be able to give Sarah and Nick a wonderful wedding... and it was!” Briony Broome, Mother of the Bride @ The Chimney House
