I can honestly say Jill was a god send!
Jill helped me with things I had never even thought about on the lead up to the wedding, she also contacted our suppliers & took the stress away from me!
On the day Jill was there & helped in anyway she could she didn’t get two minutes peace I’m afraid & nothing any of our bridal party asked was a problem.
Thank you so much for all your help Jill we couldn’t have done it without you.

Jill is absolutely amazing!
My brother won Jill’s services in a Facebook competition and gifted her to us. To be quite honest we hadn’t even thought about a wedding planner at all. The service we won from Jill was her helping us finalise our day.
We met with Jill in April and we went through all the plans we had made, all the decorative things we had bought and the suppliers we had booked and she made a list of everything.
Jill gave us access to a really good spreadsheet she had made with a rough timeline of the day, where decorative things would go etc. It was really helpful.
Over the months leading up to the wedding, Jill was really good at emailing me reminding me to do things and what things I should be doing and also just checking in how we were. In the 6 weeks or so before the wedding I included Jill in emails to suppliers and she took it from there in terms of organising timings etc. She was so fabulous and we were so thankful for her services because we were really naive to how time consuming that part would be so she really took the strain off of that.
On the last meeting for the hotel and on the day before our wedding, Jill even came out to our venue and took notes and asked where I wanted things to go.
On the day of the wedding Jill came around 10am and touched base with everyone. It was discovered that an aspect of decoration was missing from a supplier and Jill was amazing and got it fixed and how it should have been. Jill came and seen me at different times throughout the day informing me of different things but never stressing me out. Prior to the meal Jill showed me pictures of the room and I told her the centrepieces weren’t exactly how I wanted them and in 5 mins her and staff from the hotel fixed it. I was so thankful, everything was truly how I wanted it to be.
Jill, thank you for everything you done for us. We are so very grateful for your input to making our day amazing and exactly how it was dreamed to be. You were a wonderful gift to us and so very needed. I can’t believe we ever thought we would manage alone. I would so highly recommend your efficient, effective service. You are so lovely and easy to get on with and although you listen to ideas you give plenty of good ideas and advice too.
Joy & Michael - The Main Event
I was so excited to plan our wedding day and threw everything into it, but with so much information out there I found myself with 8 months to go and getting confused. Having spent so much time, effort and money planning the perfect day I was struggling with the idea of not having control of the set up and timing - you don't get a second chance at your wedding day!!
I saw an advert for a wedding planner on Facebook and thought I would message to get an initial consultation to see if this is what I needed, and more importantly would be worth the money.
Our reception was held at a hotel so I didn't really think I needed a planner as the hotel had a dedicated staff member for weddings. It wasn't until my meeting with Jill I found out they would not be there on the day to run things - everything would be handed over to someone else in the morning!! Already nervous about not doing it myself I knew I needed someone we could trust.
After a half hour chat over a coffee I was convinced, Jill was the answer to all of my worries and it was the best thing we spent our money on for the day!
She provided the perfect package "Taylored" to us. I was able to plan our day and had Jill's exceptional wedding knowledge if I needed guidance. After our first meeting, 8 months before the wedding, we spoke regularly (all the time) by email and met up again around 2 months before the day to go over the plans and start an extremely detailed time line for the day. She then stepped in around 6 weeks before the wedding to contact all our suppliers and be there when I needed advice or help with any last minute bits, allowing me to enjoy my hen parties and my final weeks of being a fiancée!
She attended our final meeting with our reception hotel and the ceremony rehearsal, along with us and our parents.
At the final meeting with the hotel I provided them with a document detailing exactly what we wanted, from table plans to bathroom essentials to where and when to spritz the room spray! Jill ensured my plans were executed to perfection on the day, I do not believe it would have been done to the letter if Jill had not been there.
Our parents were so delighted with Jill's enthusiasm, professionalism and attention to detail. They were all so relieved we had someone who we could rely on and that she was as invested in our day as we were.
Jill went above and beyond for us before, during and after. Our wedding day was so beautiful and everything we had dreamed of but there was one small issue with a supplier only providing half of the order. Jill dealt with this professionally on the day and gave me the option of being kept updated or not during the reception. Unfortunately we were not able to resolve the problem on the day but Jill continued to liaise with the supplier while we were on honeymoon, seriously going that extra mile without being asked.
Jill is a genuinely wonderful person and I would highly recommend her services to any Bride or Groom, what ever kind of day you are planning. She is knowledgable, professional, detail orientated and passionate about what she does, all while being so lovely! You can trust her 100% and she will ensure the day you have given months and years planning, and spent so much money on, is as perfect as it can possibly be. You will not regret hiring Jill!!
Sandra - Mother of the Bride
Honestly cannot recommend Jill highly enough....invaluable help in the lead up to my daughter's wedding & exceptional service on the day. Jill is organised, efficient and nothing is too much trouble. I'm convinced the day went without a hitch because she took charge of everything.....if you're looking for a wedding planner look no further! 5*service from beginning to end.
Vikki & Andrew - The Main Event
Jill is very organised and there to help throughout the process. She is proactive and takes the stress away from you on the lead up to the wedding day and certainly on the day itself. She is at the other end of the phone when you need her and has been professional throughout. I found it difficult to delegate throughout my wedding but Jill made it very easy to pass things across too. Through images and conversation I passed accross my vision for the wedding day and it was great to have someone that shared my vision to ensure the day played out as it should leaving me to focus on my guests and my husband!
We had the best best wedding day completely stress free thanks to Jill's help and I couldnt recommend her enough!
Louise & Shane - Perfectly Planned
Jill absolutely saved our wedding! Having started the process we were very naive about how much time it actually took to plan a wedding and how many moving parts there would be. She was meticulous on planning and organising all of the many many suppliers that we had involved. She made sure that all i's were dotted and t's were crossed for things we had not even thought about!
Jill spent a lot of time researching our various requests to find the most economic and best options and I think saved us quite a bit in the long run.
On the day, she had all the suppliers in line and the day worked like clock work!
We would strongly recommend Jill and Taylor Made Events to anyone who, like us, are not natural wedding planners!
Nikki - Helping Hand Package
I would highly recommend Taylor Made Events; Jill has been amazing help to me for planning my upcoming wedding next year. I have the Helping Hand Package and it is just what I need. It has been a pleasure to meet up with Jill and discuss the areas I require help with. Jill also provided me with a budget template and check list on our first meeting with I am finding both extremely useful to keep me on track.
Following our meetings Jill has been very responsive to get back to me with a list of suggestions for florists, pipers, hair and make-up which I required help with and I can honestly say I have gone with all of Jill's recommendations. Jill also provided me with a florist checklist, which I also found very useful, it was a great guide to have when I was meeting up with florists.
Thank you so much Taylor Made Events!

Jill is very professional and her organisational and timeline skills are invaluable and helped make our wedding just as we imagined. Truly reliable and trustworthy which allowed us to have a stress-free week in the lead up to our big day.
Jill took care of all the small details on the day which made our morning calm and chilled. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending Taylor Made Events to anyone looking for help in planning their wedding!
Cait & Ben - Bespoke Package
Jill, with Taylor Made Events, is more like a fairy godmother than a wedding planner. Truly whatever you wish or dream to happen for your wedding, she makes it come true! My husband and I planned our wedding in Scotland from afar, with him in London and me in the States. We had never met Jill in person, just through Skype and through email. She was the most organized and thorough planner we ever could have wished for. She had a detailed checklist and helped us to think about things that we hadn’t even considered. Every little detail she had covered.
She was flexible and helpful when we changed venues several weeks in and helped to coordinate the transition. She even helped us pay all of the vendors directly ahead of time by allowing us to pay her to pay all of the vendors, since transferring money from the States was challenging. On the day of, Jill had everything coordinated to perfection. Everything was on time, and I was absolutely blown away by the reception hall. She had coordinated and set it up to be fit for a queen. It was gorgeous. On my wedding day and the days after I was able to just be present and in the moment, and to simply enjoy myself. Jill took care of everything else, including the deconstruction of all of the tables and clearing the hall after the wedding.
It was truly a stress-free wedding, all thanks to Jill. I would recommend her in a heart beat. She is trustworthy, organized, efficient, creative, and a kind wedding planner. I cannot imagine our day without her, and she feels like family now. I am so grateful for all that she did and any bride-to-be would be lucky to have Jill on her planning team.
Rona - Helping Hand Package
Jill is superb at what she does. She is the most organised person I know so is the perfect person to help plan your big day. She helped me with a range of things, some of which I have included below:
Questions to ask the venue
Decorations - lights and chairs for our venue
Jill is very approachable and more than willing to tailor her services to exactly what you are looking for. She has a brilliant knowledge of suppliers in the industry so suggests only the very
best to make sure they fit your requirements.
Since getting married Jill has also provided me with a list of places where you should change your name. This was super helpful - many of these I wouldn't have thought of.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone who needs some assistance planning their wedding.
