Joanne Braham was a fantastic wedding planner from start to finish; she has excellent vision, knows the Chateau inside out which makes you feel extremely comfortable and confident that she knows what works in the space and ensures that she takes into account your preferences too.
We were liaising with Jo from the UK and over time with the whirlwind that a wedding can be, had forgotten certain details that are key, but Jo always reminded us of decisions she needed us to make or questions she needed to ask in order to double check our requirements ‘just encase’ which to me was a perfect mix of having a planner and still having the control most brides want. Jo made sure that requests were never too much hassle and was very accommodating; she would research the best supplier for your needs and ensure that the budget was kept in balance with this.
With an excellent eye for detail and the time Jo takes to get to know you and what would make your wishes come true, I never doubted we would get the wedding day that we dreamed of. Jo listened in regards to budget, theme and all the small details which were important to how we wanted the day to be, which were noted in emails to ensure you the status of elements booked and that you were on track and knew the progress which put me at ease, especially considering you are leaving the biggest day of your life in someone else’s hands. Jo is certainly someone you can trust.
My day ran smoothly, looked more beautiful than I ever imagined it could (and without Jo I doubt it would have!) and I would happily plan it time and time again. I must say, since the planning part of a wedding is supposed to be so stressful I can honestly say that I miss planning and my email communications with Jo… which can only indicate what a wonderful experience the whole thing was.
