Wedding Venues and Finding What you Want....

So, you've got that gorgeous ring on your finger and now its time to find the perfect venue for your perfect day.

With so many to choose from where do you start?

Of course Google and other well known search engines will guide you but the best way to really get a feel for a venue and to find out if it is 'the one' is to visit.

There are always lots of wedding open days and fairs where you can really get a great feel for what the venue and their chosen suppliers can provide for you.

It's not just about the venue itself but the staff and support you'll have in the lead up and on the day to ensure you have a stress free day.

I am lucky to work with one of the most stunning Suffolk venues and help host their open days to showcase all we have to offer.

If you're looking for an exclusive use venue, in the heart of Suffolk with acres of lush gardens and beautiful rooms for your ceremony and celebrations come along...

Make sure you look up your local wedding shows and visit all the venues that you want to see.

Take your questions with you and get all the advice you need.

As with most big decisions you'll just know when you've found the right one.

Your ideas will flow and the excitement will grow!

Have fun finding your dream venue and for any help to take the stress away and decide what's best for you get in touch.

As a fully qualified accredited coach I have a great range of tools to help you make the best decisions and feel your very best for your big day and beyond Xxx

Balancing your budget for the big day

Now more than ever is the time to look after your budget and make sure you are making best use of your money.

With rising bills and all the things you want and need for your wedding day, budgeting is really important and being savvy with your spending.

As my name suggests, I have always been Savvy and always like to give my absolute best advice on how to manage your money.

I always look out for the best deal and find ways of making money (which was a much needed skill during lockdown when weddings weren't happening!)

Being self employed I needed to find other ways to earn and found a whole new world of opportunities.

One of the companies I joined helps you save money and gives the opportunity for you to earn too, working the hours you want, fitting around all your other responsibilities.

I am helping people at the moment with this with the crazy rises in bills, I want to ensure you are getting the best deal so any extra income is being spent on what you want to spend it on and not sucked up by those nasty bills!!

For a quick and easy way to review your bills, you can go to

One of the biggest benefits is the cashback card and with all that you'll be spending on your wedding its nice to know that you will be able to get some cash back on this.

There are other cashback credit cards available from Santander which gives up to 3% and American Express who give 5% cash back for the first 3 months.  Well worth getting.  Every little counts!

This is another great website to shop through to get cashback as well.  I've been using it for years and earnt nearly £2,000 just by clicking through.

I'd love to hear any of your top tips & any money saving sites you know of.

Make sure your money is where you want it to be and being spent in the best way.

Whatever you want there's always a way.

Ask your boss for a pay rise if you're in an employed role.

Look at additional ways to earn or save.

Your wealth has such a big impact on your health and happiness.

I want to ensure you are the happiest, healthiest and wealthiest you can be.

Get in touch for a Wedding Wellbeing Review to help you manage where you are and get closer to where you want to be.

Have a fabulous week, full of love, joy and happiness.

With love from Katherine

How to Make More Money to get all you want for your Wedding

We all know planning a wedding is a big investment and, without a magic wand to wave more money into your life, you may be looking at other ways to make more so you can have all you want for your wedding.

When Covid hit and the world went mad my wedding income went away so I made sure I found other ways to get that extra income.

Thankfully I already had built a business alongside this with Tropic skincare which, not only helped keep me sane with the great support and team spirit, but also meant I was able to focus on this whilst the wedding world was upside down.

I also spent time studying to improve my offering and gained qualifications in Mindful Mental Health, Nutrition and Holistic Health with the overall goal of helping people feel good inside and out.

Everything I do is to help people be happier, healthier and wealthier.

Now I can combine this with Wedding Planning to ensure all my couples have the complete package to take their stress away and increase their happiness, health and wealth.

I am really excited to be able to share the opportunity for you to find out more about Holistic healing and how you could earn an extra income, helping you be happier, healthier and wealthier.

Imagine earning a part-time income online by helping people in need!

You may not know, but you can get clients online, without any qualifications or experience needed, by training to become a Holistic Coach from a fully accredited company who I can tell you are amazing!

Being a Holistic Coach means you have a well-rounded set of tools to help people transform their life through their mind, body, soul & emotions.

When you have the ability to serve somebody so powerfully, you then have something extremely valuable to charge for.

Within a short period of time, you can learn how to help people, just how I have.

Relieve stress and anxiety through mindfulness & meditation

Remove emotional blockages through energy healing

Transform the way a person sees themselves through breathwork

Find balance with yoga philosophy and movement exercises

If you want to learn more, The Coaching Masters are putting on a completely free, 3 day virtual event to learn how to get started.

Give yourself a break from your wedding planning and take some time for you.

Having a plan B always a good idea....and I Believe this would be great for anyone looking at ways to make extra for your big day and beyond

P.s spaces are limited, so I’d grab one before it’s full!

What Do We Say before I Do?   Take another stress away and think about a script writer for your special day X

Choosing the words for your special day, it can be difficult for you to convey, all the things you want to say, and why you love your partner in such a special way.

As a Wedding Celebrant a wonderful part of my role, is to take your love story and create a scroll.

When in the right mood the words just flow so I can portray exactly what you want your partner to know.

I write a bespoke script to share all your stories, the fun, the laughter, even the snoring!

With a celebrant you're free to use the words you want, to sing, to dance, do whatever you want.

For every couple out there wondering what's best for you, look at each venue and what they can do.

Even if not licensed we can still come and create the celebration you deserev, making it completely unique, just for you and your plus one!

When you first start planning there are lots of unknowns, that's why I offer complementary consultations so just give me a phone!

We can zoom or WhatsApp of meet at your home.

Whatever works best for you we can make a plan.

I love helping couples and will do all that I can.

Supporting you every step of the way, taking the stress away.

Just take a moment, take a deep breath, pause, relax and relief any stress.

Your Wedding should be all you want and more.

When you make your decisions you need to make sure.

Each one makes your heart sing and flutter with joy.

Smile and imagine exactly how it will be.

Create that dream day and contact me!

For script writing, poems and personalised readings to full planning and celebrancy service.

I am here to help you plan your special day, taking the stress away.

Meditating for a Mindful Marriage and Peaceful Planning

So, we're 2 weeks into January and Christmas and New Year seem like a distant memory!

For me, fortunately it hasn't taken long to get back into the swing but at the same time I have taken lots of time to reflect and review where I want to be and what I want to be doing.

The resounding answer to that questions is helping beautiful brides to be feel the best they can be for their big day and beyond.  I am committed to provide the best planning & wellbeing support for you.

You will find regular posts on my Insta & Facebook pages and for those who want the most valuable content you can join my Wedding Wellbeing Masterclass group where I host live videos, including meditations, visualisations and q&a sessions to help take the stress away.

You can join here

I find meditation such a great source of inspiration and lovely way to recharge and relax.

On Monday 17th January at 830pm, I will be doing a guided meditation to coincide with the full moon which always heightens emotions, so a great chance to release what you don't want and super charge what you do want.

If you're reading this after 17th you can still catch on replay and rewatch whenever you need to recharge.

Sometimes the best thing you can do is just take time out.

Even if you feel like you have 101 things to do which need to be done now!!

If you actually take a breath and some time out you can re-evaluate from a much clearer space.

I find breaking down the to do list into a today list of no more than 3 things is a great way to reduce the overwhelm and increase the feel good hormones which flow when you tick another things off and complete what you set out to do.

There's no competition.  No need to keep up with whatever everyone else on your timeline is doing.  Whatever you need to do will happen when it needs to and when the time is right for you.  The best decisions are those made from a place of calmness, that give you a sense of excitement, that you can envision and fall in love with, not those made in haste just because it feels like you have to do it now.

So I invite you to take a breath, take some time out and join me for a Mindful Meditation to  help you have a more peaceful planning journey.

Anyone wanting any extra special help to plan their special day and take the stress away can contact me for a chat about you, your wedding and your wellbeing to find out how best I can help you.

Each week I have five 30 minute spaces available for brides to be to have a no obligation chat with me to help take the stress away.

Getting back to planning after the Christmas Break

So, we're a week into 2022, most of the mince pies have been eaten and we're getting back into a bit more of a routine, me included!

It's been great to get back into the full swing and catch up with all my gorgeous brides to be and couples.

How are you finding it?  Are you just starting on your Wedding Planning journey or have you just got the final few things to sort?

Are you family and friends a great help or perhaps more of a hinderance?!

Do you ever think lets scrap our grand plans are just get on a plane somewhere to celebrate our special day?!

Wherever you're at and what ever your thoughts are, you can soon get yourself into a better state and feeling more positive about everything.

Have you ever noticed when you want to buy a new car, you'll keep seeing that car and the ads will start popping up on your phone?

Have you noticed since starting to plan your wedding you've discovered a whole new world and found things you weren't ever sure existed?!

This is all down to our very sophisticated brain filters.

With being exposed to over 4 million pieces of information every second our brains have to have filters in place to cope with  everything they are bombard with!
Our brains delete, distort and generalise the information it receives.

How can we use this to our advantage?

Well, we can instruct our brains to look for certain things and that information will become more obvious to us.

Our brains want to help us!  They are there to protect us and follow our instructions, they want whats best for us.  So as long as what you're asking to do does not put you in perceived danger, your brain will filter out what you don't want so you can focus on what you do want.

For wedding planning and life in general this is a great thing to keep in mind.

Rather than thinking of what could go wrong and what you don't want (therefore focusing your brain on those things) Foucs instead on what will go right and what you do want!

Your mind is such a powerful, and learning to use it well will make your planning much less stressful.  By making friends with you mind you will find decision making a lot easier.

Your brain being the centre is also closely linked with your heart and gut.

Getting butterflies in your stomach is a real thing, your brain giving you another signal that this is exciting.  Well worth listening too!  

If you have knots in your stomach, this is a sure fire indication something isn't right.  Take time to relax and find answers for this and make decisions that feel right not just for the logical brain but for your emotions too.

Keeping your body, mind and spirit in balance is key to staying calm and in control.

There are so many great resources available to help you get into a more relaxed state and make decision making easier.

I do guided meditations and visualisations as part of my Wedding Wellbeing packages.  I can also help you with any dilemmas you have to guide you to the best possible outcome with the coaching techniques and holistic therapies I use.

Get in touch to find out more about how I can help you plan your special day and take the stress away.

With love, Katherine Xx
