For a luxury destination wedding, your wedding budget should be a minimum of £65,000 for weddings with
50 guests or less and £150,000+ for weddings with 50+ guests.
Unlike other wedding planners who offer complimentary introduction consultations, we spend approximately 24 hours
getting to know you, listening to your vision, and creating your proposed wedding budget before you even hire us so you
have a clear picture of every cost. All complimentary.
The First Consult | We schedule an initial consultation to discuss your wedding vision, take notes, and get to know one another.
The Budget Planner and Proposal | We come back to you with a proposed wedding budget based on your vision, vendor quotes, and wedding must-haves
The Second Consultation | Once we’ve sent you a budget planner, we schedule a second consultation to go over it. This gives you an excellent
picture of what your budget will look like for everything you want to have and all vendor fees.
I had the sincere pleasure of meeting Mwai in July of this year at the Royal Livingstone hotel where she had organized from start to finish what can only be described as the most eye opening magical fairytale of epic proportion turning our iconic hotel into a school, a mesmerizing and captivating floral garden- coupled with a well-executed display leadership by managing her guests and her related hotel operations for her group that included food and beverage, events, rooms and VIPs. Mwai’s energy and positive vibe is absolutely contagious and her infectious enthusiasm for days long was a learning curve for us all.

I had the pleasure of working with Mwai on several occasions, including photographing the Floral Experience Masterclass in Zambia. I absolutely love working with Mwai and her professionalism, vision and dedication never ceases to amaze me. She is a warm and friendly person with brilliant organisational skills and attention to detail. Mwai puts her heart and soul into her work and it clearly shines through in the end result; her events are delivered to perfection. Mwai’s expertise and passion of creating exceptional high-end events has been inspirational for me, showing me time and time again that with vision and determination the sky is the limit.

“ I absolutely love working with Mwai”
Before working with Mwai, and despite working with some wonderful clients and brands, I found that the majority of my projects were typical of the mainstream, traditional wedding styles prevalent today and I felt quite limited in artistic expression.
Mwai has given me the opportunity to create designs for some truly sensational weddings and events such as the Karen Tran Masterclass in Zambia - a true accolade for anyone in the wedding stationery industry.
What I have loved most about working with Mwai as that she works with clients that are discerning, high-end and visionary which has given me the chance to really hone my artistic skills and has also given me the confidence to create stationery designs that are unparalleled and by far some of my best work to date!

“truly sensational weddings and events”
We prefer not to take on more than 6 weddings per year and take on a max of 10 weddings. We limit the number of weddings we take on, so we can focus on our couples and giving them the support they truly need to create the wedding they’re dreaming of.
1. How many weddings do you coordinate per year?
My team is made up of various staff members and freelancers and the number depends on the size, scope, and level of support needed for a wedding. For elaborate weddings with extensive floral designs and structures, I bring on additional floral designers or production support members to help with the securing of arches or structures. For one wedding, I might need a setup team of 50 and for another, I might need a few extra floral designers to help with a floral wall and then a couple of staff members to help with setup and tear down. It also varies depending on where I’m traveling as sometimes I need to pull in local support at the destination. I have a vast network of vendors and team members with significant experience so no matter where we go, they’re always up for the challenge and excited by the event.
2. Do you have a big team?
There are many ways we can weave your destination into your wedding design. For example, we might source materials from local markets to use for the centerpieces or table styling. We can utilize native grasses or florals and pull them into your centerpieces or floral structures. We may add tropical fruit from your destination to your dessert table or use throw pillows and fabrics that match your destination aesthetic. There are many creative ways to weave what matters to you into your wedding. At one of my weddings, we hired special long-horn cattle and placed a headband beneath their horns, because that was a traditional wedding element from my bride’s culture.
We walk through all of this during your wedding design phase.
