Beauty Consultants

Everyone expects the bride to look the most beautiful she has ever looked on her special day

From traditional to unique, themed weddings (and everything in between) we ensure the happy couple gets the wedding of their dreams in every way. Knowing that the small details are often just as important as the major ones mean we pay attention to all aspects of the wedding day, from beginning to end, letting the bride and groom focus on themselves and their love for one another.

As a team both in business and in life, we combine our skills and knowledge to provide exceptional service, from the initial planning stage all the way through to receiving the completed wedding album. An initial consultation lays the groundwork, taking the vision put forward by the bride and groom and expanding upon it until a cohesive plan emerges. Whether this takes 2 meetings or 20, we are committed to taking the time to produce a wedding plan that reflects the style of the bride and groom in such a way that they both feel well represented.

With memories of our own wedding still fresh in our minds, we are in a unique position to understand and empathize with the stress planning their special day can put couples under. It is always our aim to remove as much of the stress from them as possible, taking care of all the details so that when their wedding day finally arrives their main focus is upon enjoying their special day and looking forward to spending the rest of their lives together. We work hard, so the happy couple doesn’t have to!

We take inspiration for our wedding planning not only from the ideas put forward by the bride and groom but also from nature, events, local foods and venues, and current wedding trends. This allows us to take the couple’s vision and add our own suggestions and recommendations, resulting in a wedding plan that is unique, incorporates the bride and groom’s individual personalities, and is able to be produced within the designated budget.

Wedding Venue

We are firmly established in the region as ‘the’ wedding planners to hire, and after having produced a large number of weddings, we have a solid list of venues, caterers, flower vendors and other businesses to rely on. Each of the businesses and services we work with has been personally vetted by us to ensure not only reliability but efficiency and the provision of excellent service and value. This allows us to work with the confidence that whichever business or service the bride and groom choose to assist with wedding preparations will go above and beyond to deliver excellence.

No wedding is too big or too small. If an exclusive, boutique wedding with a small number of guests is what the happy couple wants we are only too happy to provide it. Likewise, if an extravagant, lavish wedding with hundreds of guests is the couple’s desire, we are just as happy to plan accordingly. We understand that often budget dictates the size of the guest list and do everything within our field of expertise to ensure the best value is received.

In addition to managing the wedding venue, catering, flowers and all the other details that go into making everything perfect for the big day we can assist with recommendations for accommodations for out-of-town guests, transportation services, and even best man, groomsman and bridesmaids’ outfits for those who cannot be present for fitting in the weeks prior to the wedding. Logistics is our specialty, and even if it seems like an impossible request, if it can happen, we will make it happen!

As we focus solely on planning weddings, we have made it our business to know everything there is to know about planning a day to remember. The combination of extensive knowledge and skill, great resources and a willingness to do whatever it takes to ensure our clients are not only satisfied with our service but also so impressed they will feel compelled to recommend us to others is the cornerstone of Chris and Fin Layson Wedding Planners. Many of our clients have come to us based upon word-of-mouth reviews which we greatly appreciate and cherish.

Our involvement in our clients’ wedding planning is as little or as vast as is desired and required. Some of our clients need us to take care of a select part of the preparations, while others hire us to take care of every aspect of their wedding day. Either way, we give each of our clients our full attention, whether they need advice, recommendations, or someone to guide them through the wedding planning process gently. It is this level of attention that sets our services above the rest and has our past clients recommending us to their friends and family members.

Destination weddings are a growing trend, and we network with only the best wedding planners from around the world, in some of the most exotic locations a couple could wish to be married in. We ensure our clients are able to feel confident that when they arrive in the chosen venue, everything will be taken care of as if it had been planned in their home town or city. Once we know where our clients wish to exchange vows, we get in contact with the best local wedding planner available and get preparations underway.

We look forward to assisting you with your wedding plans. Please call us and let’s start planning your day to remember!
