We know your wedding day should be special, and we want you to enjoy it and make it as seamless as possible. We know you shouldn’t be the one coordinating vendors, arranging décor, and running around making sure everything is in place last minute. That’s what we’re here for. We’ll slip into the background, and ensure everything goes as planned.
Editor’s Note: for this Best Wedding Planners in London Spotlight, we had the pleasure of interviewing London wedding planner Marsi, from One Moment Bridal Consulting.

What types of weddings do you specialize in?
I am extremely adaptable but I thrive in DIY weddings where couples are trying to be creative to stay on a budget.
Why do couples love working with you?
I only take on a few couples a year as I do Wedding Planning part-time. By doing this I can give my FULL attention to my couples. I once drove over an hour to drop off invitations to a bride and stopped at Harvey’s and got her a burger and fries because I knew she was hungover. I always go above an beyond.
What do you love most about being a wedding planner?
The wedding day. Everything about it is fun and magical for me.
How did you get started?
I fell into it when I was appointed “Coordinator” and asked to light some candles at the venue prior to guest’s arrival. When I arrived NOTHING was done. There were no tables and chairs even set up and the mother of the bride was still in jeans stressing out. I sent her to get ready, unzipped my stilettos, called in reinforcements and got it all set up in an hour. I was sweaty. When the bride arrived for pictures an hour later I told her to get her pictures done and NOT to come in the reception room yet. I told her fiance what happened and he came in to make sure everything was set up properly. After the wedding, the bride set up my website because she thought I had found my calling. The groom said I run a tight ship and their day wouldn’t have been as wonderful without me. Since then a Graphic Designer friend redid my website and created my logo and marketing material for me.
What budget range do you cater to?
We work with all budgets.
What typically happens at the beginning of the process when someone contacts you?
I meet the couple for a free consultation and we go over what the needs are and assess how and if they could use my services. We discuss their vision, what they have done so far and what needs to be done leading up to the big day.
Marsi helped SAVE the day after some complications with our venue and a number of delivery delays. I cannot believe it all turned out so well! Everything went so smoothly day of, we were thrilled.
