We're a French/English couple living in London and decided to get married in the South of France. We heard about Lucy through our venue and decided it would be wise to have someone on the ground locally to help with all the arrangements the French end - thank God we did!! I honestly don't believe we could have organised the wedding without Lucy.
From the very start Lucy was extremely charming and helpful - coming up with great suggestions and happy to look into anything we needed (even researching disabled equipment for one of our guests). Throughout the whole process Lucy was a complete delight to work with - in the lead up to the wedding she was always on email or on the phone asking what we wanted, reminding us when payments were due to various suppliers etc.
When we arrived in France prior to the wedding she was there helping us with all the last minute arrangements. On the day of the wedding, she arrived early and was an absolute pleasure to have around - no clip board yielding, head set wearing, shouty wedding planner as seen on films, just a really lovely presence making sure everything was in place and everyone was where they should be doing what they needed to do. She even ran out to source some beads (needed for the ceremony) we lost at the last minute as she wanted to make sure everything was exactly how we wanted it.
As the bride I was able to focus entirely on attempting to make myself look glamorous and didn't give a second thought to what the caterer/babysitters/celebrant/delieverers were doing. Like magic, everything just seemed to be how it was supposed to be. Our wedding could not have gone better, the whole day was exactly what we had dreamed of and we received a billion comments saying it was the best wedding people had been to, in no small part thanks to Lucy - we can't recommend her services highly enough!!
Thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!

We are sitting on Lake Como enjoying a glass of wine and ready for some R&R!!
Thank you so much for everything. I honestly don't know how we would have done it without you! We were able to enjoy the day to the fullest because we knew that you were taking care of anything that came up. Everything turned out amazing and we were both so happy. We got so many compliments from friends and family about what a great wedding it was...
We will no doubt be in touch soon but thanks for everything.
And later on, when back from the honeymoon...
We still think back on the wedding very often and every our friends still tell us how it was the best wedding they have been to. That is always a nice compliment to get especially since there have been soooo many weddings lately. I think everyone enjoyed the mix of people and obviously the setting. I think back on the wedding and only have good memories. You really helped make the whole experience perfect. I felt like I enjoyed the wedding day to the fullest because you were there to make sure that anything that came up had a solution. Oli and I still talk about how helpful it was to have you there. We were very lucky. Also Deborah and Tim (Mas Laurent) were so sweet and helpful throughout the process. If a potential client ever wants a referral please tell them to feel free to contact Oli or me. We would be happy to talk to them about our experience.

From the original planning some 6 months before the ‘day’ through to the actual wedding and evening reception at two different locations in small French villages near Uzes, Lucy was the epitome of ‘cool, calm and collected’.
Simply put – it went like clockwork. Lucy was always discreet yet omnipresent ensuring that all the celebrations proceeded without a hitch. After the wedding, all costs were itemised and were comparable to the estimates.
A highly recommended service that ensured that the parents of the bride and bridegroom could just enjoy themselves on the day.

Lucy, Thank you! The wedding was perfect.
And you certainly went above and beyond. I also had the opportunity to recommend you via one of my social networking sites this week, so who knows, maybe you'll have a new prospect coming your way!
More than anything else, we enjoyed meeting you and would love to see you again when you are next in London.

Although words can never truly thank you for everything you have done for us, we will try! It was an absolute pleasure to have you as our wedding planner; the day was everything we could ever have dreamt for and it simply would not have been possible and nowhere near as amazing without you!
Our endless requests were dealt with perfectly and you went above and beyond what was or should have been expected of you in every sense. An extra special thank you for having my sisters and I to your home for the trials and the lovely lunch you served - it was really kind and touching of you.
If either James or I can ever do anythng for you, please let us know. We wish you every happiness and success in the future. Our best wishes and eternal thanks!

What can we say other than thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.I know you worked unbelievably hard, and I must say the results did show.
We had one of the most amazing days of our life and thank you so much for making it happen for us.
Thanks again for being the best wedding planner ever.
Natalie and James
Just a quick note to say how absolutely delighted we were with all your hard work in making our wedding so wonderful!
Your planning was meticulous and right on the mark. The locations were stunning and the food absolutely delicious. You set the perfect backdrop for a magnificent and stress-free day. We LOVE you!
With much fondness,Jono, Anna and little Finn
How can a simple word like "THANK YOU" express my heartfelt thanks to you? I am sure we all would have ended up in a 'weeping heap' had you not been there with your steady, calm guidance!
The fun parts of preparation seemed to be overshadowed by the 'not-so-fun'parts, but as always happens with hidnsight...th ereverse is true!! And now we all have wonderful memoires and photos!! THANK YOU LUCY. We would love to host you in N.Z. if ever possible. With love, Ali Edmond, mother of the bride.

My husband and I were married at Chateau de Massillan 16 June 2012 and could not have asked for a more perfect day! I am American, my husband is English and we live in Singapore. We wanted a destination wedding and felt Provence would be practical for our London guests and worth the trip for our guests coming from afar, including ourselves.
Planning a wedding from Singapore without ever visiting Provence until a week before the wedding perhaps was a bit risky, but with the help of Lucy it was an absolutely magical day. We worked with Lucy to manage our wedding day logistics and help with referrals if we ever hit a dead end in trying to find vendors. She was immensely helpful as a local contact with extensive experience with vendors.
About two weeks leading up to the wedding, I began to feel overwhelmed with tying up all the details and was thankfully able to hand over the final planning to Lucy. It was such a relief to have confidence in Lucy to finalize the many crucial details on a level that we would not have been able to achieve. We cannot put into words how helpful it was to have Lucy coordinate our wedding day. To be able to enjoy your own wedding without a single worry is a dream.
We were impressed with such accommodating service considering we were planning from across the world and many details could not be finalised until the week before. We thank Lucy for such attentive service and specialised expertise!
