Destination Weddings should be just as unique and special as those for couples getting married here in the UK, and this is the principle on which The Bridal Consultant was born.

Meet the Dream Team

Lisa

I’m the founder and head wedding planner of the Bridal Consultant.

The idea initially came to me from a mix of my love of travel and planning my own destination wedding with a less than competent wedding planner. Albeit I was getting married in Scotland and living in England the stresses were still the same. Not being able to get in contact with our wedding planner (he went on a ‘round the world trip’ for 3 months just before my wedding) led to lots of unnecessary worry and stress in the run up to the wedding. In the end we had the perfect day (even though it rained all day), and due to that experience I founded The Bridal Consultant.

My earlier 20’s were spent travelling Southern America and the Caribbean, during this time I witnessed the conveyor belt style weddings and this helped me to define the concept of The Bridal Consultant and decide which type of weddings I did, and more importantly didn’t want to plan.

I decided to create a company that would offer excellent communication first and foremost and be completely honest, for example we have no hidden fees, no hard to understand small print in our contract, no unfair practices and will be as flexible as possible within the realms of the venue you are working with as we know things don’t always go to plan when it comes to weddings!

We focus on building strong relationships with all of our partners and vendors and this is really our key focus. When we consider a new venue or visit a new destination I don’t only think of it from my point of view but I also consider what our clients want and desire.

I’m proud of the way the Bridal Consultant has grown and is now one of the leading wedding planning agencies in the UK offering destination weddings.

Due to the quality of our weddings our reputation has grown with us and first and foremost is our client experience. Awards are lovely but more importantly to us is the feedback from our couples after the big day!

I’m Sasha, wedding planner and social media manager at The Bridal Consultant.

I have been a part of The Bridal Consultant team for over 6 years and in this time have gained lots of knowledge and experience in planning beautiful overseas weddings! I started working with the legal paperwork and after one year of training alongside founder Lisa I started planning my own weddings and now have 3 seasons of weddings successfully planned under my belt.

To me, my job is a chance to let out my creative side and give my couples a wedding planning experience that is as stress free and most importantly as enjoyable as possible! I love solving issues and finding solutions for my couples especially finding ways to stretch a budget further without compromising the success of the day. Another favourite of mine is working with a couple to develop their ideas and wedding theme, I then can’t wait to see the photographs after the day to see how it all came together.

I love the excitement surrounding my role and really enjoy discussing new ideas and talking weddings. I especially love the travelling necessary for my job, I’ve been lucky enough to visit Venice in Italy, Greece, Monaco and Malta and I can’t wait to see where my travels take me next.

I also take some time aside to write blogs and I’m in charge of the social media presence at the Bridal Consultant, to inspire all of you brides to be.

Last year I took a break to welcome my two none identical twins boys, Tommy and Leo, I love being a mum, but I’m also thrilled to be back planning weddings and excited about the plans we have in The Bridal Consultant for the next 2 years. can’t wait to share them with you all.

When I’m not planning weddings, I’m busy being a mum to two very active twin boys, I love planning my own trips & seeing new places, whether this be visiting new cities, weekends away or holidays abroad, my boys have already had their first visit to Greece when they were 6 weeks old so no doubt they will be keen travellers when they grow older too!
