Just got engaged and don't know where to start? Boutique event management and wedding planning agency, Zest Events (www.zestevents.com), has launched a wedding planning service that's perfect for time-pressed, budget-conscious couples. The new Zest Consulting service aims to compress your planning and help you establish the framework for your big day in one afternoon. You'll get the chance to cover all aspects of your planning, from venue and marquee recommendations to choosing your dress and advice on caterers, order of the day, entertainment, flowers, the best way to order drinks and more.
Zest organises all manner of events from corporate parties to private celebrations, so you'll be able to pick up great tips and raid its contacts book! Its weddings have included a fairy tale celebration which involved a castle with a moat, a Slumdog-inspired bash complete with monkeys and tuktuks, and it even managed to bring a touch of the south of France to an English garden, with olive trees and a lemon and lavender walkway with storm lanterns.
The service is £250, for which you'll get to spend half a day with one of the Zest team at its southwest London offices, creating your perfect day.
