Run my Wedding


THE ASK:
“We’re having my wedding reception in a marquee at my parents’ home.  I’ve organised the day but there’s no one to make sure it all goes to plan.
We’re all going to be at the church and want someone to be back at base coordinating proceedings in our absence and most importantly to provide some support to my mum in looking after her home.”
THE TASK:
Trouble-shooting a port-a-loo issue from the get-go.
Helping bridesmaids decide on final outfit accessories.
Liaising with caterers and bands on timings, positioning and finalising financial arrangements.  Making sure anyone contracted in for the day got to eat.
Come the evening, inside the house with an ear to all the babies sleeping whilst the parents were outside in the marquee dancing the night away!
THE RESULT:
I wasn’t even looking for The Butler but came across her on Twitter @TheButlerYorks, followed and then googled in order to try to make contact as thought it may be a service I could use on my wedding day.
Olivia did an amazing job, contacting suppliers when things went wrong and I no longer had access to my own phone.  A portaloo crisis was averted and the water works fully functioning by the time we got back from the church!  She discretely took care of things which would otherwise have been difficult in a big wedding dress on my special day!
We trusted The Butler implicitly with cheques and cash for payments to suppliers required on the day.  Whilst Olivia may not be a “wedding coordinator” this role can definitely be added to her list of capabilities.  I can highly recommend Olivia’s services.
