Planned to perfection: The good, the bad and the ugly!

The benefits of having a professional wedding planner at the helm of your wedding can never be underestimated.

“My inspiration for this project came while contemplating how to convince couples that using a wedding planner is a good idea,” says shoot coordinator Annie Robinson of AnnieV. She tells us, “Few people appreciate when they embark on their journey, the sheer amount of time and work that goes into planning, organising and running a wedding. From sourcing good, reliable and trustworthy suppliers to locating venues, not to mention all the minutiae and stress of running around on the day itself. Many have said, after the fact, that they wished they'd had a wedding planner!”

So, what better way to make this point than by illustrating just how showstopping a big day can be once a professional hand is in involved in the planning versus just how bad it could be without their aid? After all, some things have to be seen to be believed! Annie says, “We were positively comedic in our approach and swung hard in the opposite direction, introducing heavy make-up, ill-fitting outfits and floppy stationery.”

We don't know about you, but we're convinced!
