Wedding plannig – Nicky & Alan

Nicky & Alan - Gloucestershire

“Matthew and Millie have done an awesome job as our Wedding Planner! They have been very professional and helpful all along. Both had given us very good guidance on how to plan and prepare for our overseas wedding. They have also given us great recommendations on videography, music, florist, catering, table wares, invitations, decorations, ceremony…. basically on everything! Both of us would have been so lost without their guidance! The wedding went so well and I would say it was even better than what we were hoping for! We have received a lot of compliments from our guests regarding the arrangements, settings, food, music. Our deep appreciation to Matthew and Millie for making it a perfect wedding and a truly memorable once in a life time experience for us!”

Destination Wedding Planner – Mary & Ben

Mother of the Bride - Amalfi, Italy

“Jim Bob and I are so very thankful and even a bit sad to know our wedding journey is complete.  Your great attention to detail, counsel, practical observations and abundant love for our family was just amazing in every way. To say we could not have done this Italian journey without you is almost comical!  We never worried about a thing and knew that your communications with all the vendors and individuals was happening constantly.  THANK YOU!  Our hearts are filled and overflowing with wonderful memories.  Please know you two were so pivotal in helping our daughter’s dreams come true—Ben’s as well.  What a love filled Italian time we had—Can’t wait to relive it all through the videos & photographs.  Can’t wait!”

Wedding planner UK – Claudette & Jon

Claudette & Jonathan - Bristol

“I honestly believe we were meant to find you! Having someone who understood my vision & had attention to detail in the same way as me, carries the same amount of passion for their work and LOVES Julie Andrews, was so comforting to me. You made our day perfect! We couldn’t have done any of it without you! Being able to hand over ‘your baby’ is no easy thing, but we felt 100% that you were able to carry everything & we can’t thank you enough for that.”

Italy Destination Wedding – Ashley & Mike

Mike & Ashley - Lake Como, Italy

“It was an honor to have had you both plan and run our wedding. I can’t possibly know all you did, but what is very evident is the impact you had on all of our friends and family that went. Even just yesterday, two of my friends again complimented you on a litany of things. It’s still on their minds! I can’t recall one instance in my life where the vision I had for something was exceeded by someone else’s execution, and here you did that multiple times over. Thank you!”

French Destination Wedding – Lucy & Peter

Father of the Bride - Chateau du Grand-Lucé, France

“How do we begin to thank you for helping create the wedding of our dreams? Ever since your first email back to me where, you noted what a special thing a vegan wedding would be, I knew we’d work so wonderfully together. Your creative vision is simply superb – all of the small details and finishing touches were better than I could have hoped for. We also can’t thank you enough for the amazing vendors you connected us to. Thank you also for the amazing discounts we would never have had without you! (There’s no doubt our wedding wouldn’t have been as beautiful without you being a part of it!) Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”

Matthew, thank you so much for your flexibility and patience in bringing our wedding together, I could not have asked for a more calm and understanding planner. Call when you come to Canada!”

Caroline & Tom - North Cadbury Court, Somerset

“Wholeheartedly dedicated would be the understatement of the century when describing Matthew. Matthew was consistently upbeat and accommodating. It was clear from the start that he was just as committed as we were to making sure we had an incredibly special and meaningful wedding. We can’t accurately describe what a gem Matthew is in just a single paragraph. In the most basic sense, Matthew is a phenomenal planner. But on a deeper and more personal level, Matthew helped create unforgettable memories… and is now a lifelong friend.”

Christabel & Loren - Wick Farm, Bath

“Matthew Oliver is not only incredibly talented but also one of the kindest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He truly cares about his clients – not just their wedding dreams but about their lives in general. He’s got a wealth of knowledge and a great eye for detail and doesn’t give up until everything is done right. Matthew really considered our wishes and planned a fairytale wedding that was a beautiful reflection of our relationship, personalities, traditions, and interests. He’s so much fun, very patient, and compassionate; I just can’t imagine there ever being a better wedding planner (and ally). The people he works with (florists, hair and makeup stylists, photographers, officiants, etc.) are also unbelievably nice and mega talented – they all brought so much light and love with them on our special day. Thanks to him and his team we have happy memories of a magical day that will keep us smiling for years to come. Love you to bits Mr. Matthew Oliver!”

Himesh & Maybo - Trinity Buoy Wharf, London

“Throughout the whole wedding planning process, Matthew was a pleasure to work with; he was very positive, attentive, excellent at replying promptly to our (many) emails, and always happy for a chat or video conversation at short notice. It was great for him to be the main point of contact with the suppliers, which reduced a lot of stress for us! On the wedding day itself, Matthew and his team proved completely indispensable; we simply couldn’t have done it without them. It was a full day: a Hindu ceremony in the morning, Chinese ceremony in the afternoon, and a reception in the evening, with multiple suppliers involved throughout, and we didn’t have to worry about any of the logistics on the day at all – we could just relax and enjoy the day. He and his team made sure everything ran to time, made sure we were well fed(!), and dealt with the few issues that arose with the absolute minimum of fuss. The result was a day we’ll remember forever – we couldn’t recommend them enough.”

Cara & Justin - Ravello, Italy

“Matthew was an invaluable resource as an American couple planning a wedding abroad in Europe. He helped us research our options for the perfect destination, coordinated everything with all our vendors brilliantly, and took care of everything flawlessly on our wedding day so we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The entire experience working with Matthew was perfect, and we would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a dedicated, genuine, and of course, very skilled wedding planner. Thank you again, Matthew!”

Matthew Oliver Weddings

Helen & Dan - Ston Easton, Somerset

“Matthew helped us for an entire year leading up to our wedding. We both work long hours and were concerned about the amount of time we could give to the huge amount of work that goes into creating a special wedding for our friends and family. Matthew was organised and professional and took care of everything for us, but also knew exactly how to involve us in all the decisions. We set a budget and we came in exactly on target. Matthew was contactable at all times, and responded quickly to all our emails. He created an amazing visual spectacle on the day and things went perfectly. He more than earned his fee in terms of the amount of time and effort he had to put in, including numerous meetings, phone-calls, endless emails from us and the venue and suppliers. I would not hesitate to recommend him and as we got nearer the day I was increasingly relieved he was there to help!”

Julia & Geoff - Family Farm, Devon

“Matthew is extremely personable, great to work with, enthusiastic, friendly and 100% approachable! Working with Matthew you feel as if no idea is a bad idea and he is very supportive of frequent bridal changes-of-mind, working with us to ensure that we felt comfortable with the options. Matthew is respectful of budgets and understands the importance of ensuring family members are happy with decisions made. He thinks of details that you would easily overlook and his wedding day styling is faultless. Matthew absolutely comes into his own styling a venue, he is resourceful in ensuring that the final look will be unique, elegant and personal.”

Meg & Jason - Manchester

“Matthew is kind, caring and fun to be around, but with a no-nonsense edge to him that really comes in handy. He’s also very creative with a keen eye for style, which really helped us bring our ideas to life. I couldn’t recommend him enough.”

Matthew Oliver Weddings

Sarah & Stuart - Lusty Glaze, Cornwall

“I am hesitating with writing this, because although it is such a cheesy thing to say, I really couldn’t begin to describe how fantastic Matthew is. I have no doubt that every bride who is lucky enough to have Matthew as their wedding planner feels as though he is their best friend. From day one, I trusted Matthew completely (not just as a wedding planner, but as a person as well) and to have someone so genuine, happy, creative, switched on, stylish, professional and skilled, was a dream come true! Matthew becomes even more important than the Groom… loved equally though 🙂 Matthew even won my husband and dad’s heart and that is saying something!! Thank you for everything, all my love”
