2019


Pure luck brought us together with Philippa. And how lucky we were! She was with us every step of the way and honestly, thought about every little detail and worried in our stead when we were just too relaxed about the logistics and planning. From the choice of venue to catering, choice of musicians to table decoration, she offered us many options and asked all the right questions ever patiently to understand what we liked and what we didn’t. Giving her a general idea about our preferred theme of the event (“historical place, simple colours, just good food and good music, a great party, nothing fancy” etc.) sufficed. Frankly, every aspect was beyond our expectations. The venue turned out to be a gem. The food and drinks were all incredibly delicious. None of the guests were able to point to any weaknesses in the event. On the contrary, they all left with the feeling that this was by far the best wedding party they’ve ever been. So, all in all, you are in good hands with Philippa. She will be your planner and your friend. And we are confident you will feel as lucky as we did.

You were such a great help throughout our planning, allowing us to tailor a bespoke package so that we could feel as involved and DIY with our big day as we could from England all whilst lending your expert advice, local knowledge and skills. You were absolutely crucial in saving us from complete meltdown when the Spanish weather didn’t show up as we’d hoped and kept us just about sane in the couple of very wet days before the wedding and the morning of.  Thanks to you we had a plan B (and C, D and E!) and as we were so prepared in the end – of course the sun shone! Your help on the day meant that we moved seamlessly from one part of the day to the next around the grounds of Mas Santo without us even having to worry whether everything was in place and when any little concerns did crop up you were there to handle these.

— Laura & Beth
We both wanted to give a huge heartfelt thank you for giving us a fabulous wedding day. There wasn’t one person who didn’t get swept up in the magic of the day or comment on the attention to detail along with how smooth the day ran.

Pip was just amazing to work with!! People say having a wedding is stressful, but Pip managed the event and planning so well it allows you to enjoy it all! She is so creative and manages to understand exactly what you are after, even if you can’t quite explain it yourself!! We had the most beautiful day, with beautiful flowers and decor and everything Pip did was perfect! We can’t recommend Pip enough! If only we could do it all again, it truly was the best day of our lives!

Adam - You made everything amazing, thank you for all your help with our wedding and your hard work. We can not get over how good it was.
Lauren - Big thanks to our amazing wedding planner. Through all the ups and downs she calmed Adam down and made the day so so perfect. Couldn’t have done it without you.

We got the photos from Jo and it was great to relive the day in pictures. And to see again what a great job you did in organising everything and seeing it through on the day. You were so well organised and did everything so we could enjoy the day with our guests. We can’t thank you enough for your hard work before and on the day, the stunning bouquet, the beautiful decorations, your great recommendations, especially the celebrant and the band. Thanks for helping make this day so special for us!

We can not recommend Philippa (aka Pip) enough for planning our wedding in Spain. We married at the incredible Casa Felix near Sitges. Everyone said it was the most stylish wedding they have ever been too! It was a pleasure to deal with Pip and share ideas in the build up to the wedding, and her passion for design and flowers shines through. The flower arch for the ceremony was so beautiful and romantic. Thank you so much for making it so special for us.
— Annie & Sam
We would just like to say how thankful we are for everything you done to make our wedding day so special, considering we are very un-organised you made the wedding day run so smoothly without missing any touches. Everything from the table pieces to making sure everyone was comfortable walking down the aisle, it all looked so effortless but the finishing touches made it so special, our arch and flowers were beautiful. So many of our friends said it was the best wedding they had ever been to, the pizzas at midnight went down a treat and thank you for saving a slice for me! We couldn’t of asked for more.
— Jemma & Ramsey
From the very first day we talked, I knew our wedding was in great hands. Thank you for all the help throughout the year-long process, and for always being a call or an email away. The day couldn’t have gone more perfectly. Due to the change in weather, you came up with a last minute plan for us that was better than the original. All the flowers and details were stunning. Your recommendations for caterers and the live band were fantastic, and greatly enjoyed by everybody. In short, people said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Thank you for making the most important day of our lives seamless, stress-free and absolutely beautiful!

Thanks so much for everything! It was amazing and far exceeded our expectations. Everyone had a blast and keeps telling us it was the best wedding they had ever been to......... We also had a complete blast!
— Jasmine & Destini
What can we say! We will never be able to Thank you enough for everything you have done for us, our day was everything we had ever wished for and so much more! You have made the whole process of getting married away from home so exciting and stress free and is a day we will cherish for the rest of our lives!
— Kiri & Gary
I just want to say a huge thank you for making our wedding so special, we couldn’t have wished for a better day, and all of your team and the services you provided were beyond our expectations. We have been inundated with comments and thanks from our guests for the way that you transformed the venue and co-ordinated the day with seamless ease to make it just so perfect and stress free for us. From the first day that we met to discuss our plans with you in Brighton, we knew that we had found the perfect person to plan our day. At each stage of the planning our excitement and confidence grew as we met the services you had recommended, all of whom tailored their professional service to our personal needs and wishes. You really did take care of everything, down to the tiniest detail and it felt so very personal and perfect for us both.

The whole day was an absolute rollercoaster of emotion with tears and laughter of joy and happiness and we couldn’t have done it without you. We have a great deal to be thankful for and couldn’t go without extending our thanks to you for making our wedding so fantastic and memorable.

When planning our destination wedding, I came across Philippa’s website and I immediately knew I liked her style. She was quick to respond with a lot of information and helped us decide that the Sitges area in Spain was the right place for our wedding.

Planning a wedding from the United States in Spain would have been a rather large challenge if it was not for Philippa’s help. Having only a short period of time in Spain for planning and being unable to see or try many of the vendors first hand, we had to trust Philippa’s advice. We went into our wedding without seeing the venue, tasting the caterer, cake or really any other aspects. I consider myself kind of a control freak and a huge foodie. So if I am being honest, we were pretty stressed and scared about how our wedding day was going to turn out. We were only going off pictures and reviews from the internet.

Everything turned out beautiful and perfect beyond our expectations! The venue Philippa recommended was unbelievable. Philippa gave 110% on our wedding day. She was calm and organised and helped with any requests. The decor and flowers were incredible (which I believe Philippa did herself). The catering company she recommended was professional, fun and provided great food. The cake was gorgeous and tasted amazing. The guitarist added a such a lovely touch to our ceremony and aperitif. Our guests were blown away by the place, the wedding and Philippa’s service.

Thank you for everything you did on Saturday - we had an absolute blast!!

You really helped us to capture the atmosphere we were after and we could see you working tirelessly from start to finish to make sure everything was executed the way we wanted it. During our first Skype conversation I remember mentioning that the reason we wanted to hire a planner was so that on the big day we could relax and truly be in the moment. Well, our wish came true! The magic just seemed to happen all around us and we had an unforgettable day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

We would like to say a huge thank you for helping us with our wedding. We had the best time and the venues worked incredibly well. The decorations and cheesecake were exactly as we hoped and received wonderful comments from our guests.

Where do we start….
The biggest thank you in the world for making our wedding day the most amazing day of our lives. We honestly could not have asked for more. Everything went seamlessly on the day thanks to you and your team, which meant Matt and I could completely relax with all of our friends and family. I have had so many comments from everyone about the day, especially the food, the drummers, the band, the food truck area! Everything was completely perfect, all thanks to you and your recommendations and planning prior to and on the day. There just aren’t enough words to express how amazing it was apart from… can we do it all over again please??
— Danielle & Matt

Just a little note to thank you once again for the amazing work you did at our wedding. We had the weekend of our lives and it was all down to you! The wedding day went without a hitch and the bar was super. Thank you so much.

Philippa is very knowledgeable about planning a wedding in or near Barcelona. She is experienced in wedding planning and has a long list of connections/ recommendations for anything that you would like to include in your special day. In person, she is friendly, efficient and gets the job done! She helped us choose the most beautiful venue and made it look magical on the day of. Thank you Philippa!

Dear Philippa,

We hope you are really well! Well we certainly came back home with a bump to daily life after our most incredible fairytale wedding at Villa Catalina.

We cannot thank you enough for all the help you provided us with on our very special day. You work so quietly and efficiently creating your magic - We did not think it was possible to make Villa Catalina look even more stunning and magnificent but you certainly did that and more.

Our hearts are filled with amazing memories of the day from the band to the food and the incredible ceremony provided by Toby, but then to see the stunning and so rustic wedding cake (just our style!) presented so beautifully and to seeing all the incredible fairy lights and bulbs outside making it look so enviably romantic and beautiful. We could not wish for it to look any other way.

Your hands worked magic with the dining room. Our main concern was having dinner in there almost every night that week and whether it would look different enough on the wedding night. Well we needn’t have worried it was jaw-droppingly beautiful. You did amazingly well and at such short notice. The flowers were stunning and in keeping with the villa as was the lace table runner - just so pretty.

Thank you is not really enough for what you do and you do it so well. We shall treasure the setting you created for us at the wedding forever and we didn’t think twice about our lost case of decorations that had taken us 6 months to put together.

We felt like royalty on the day with the team of incredible people all working their magic flitting around busily like bees to honey creating the most incredible scene for us all to enjoy. We smile each time we think of the lovely signs, decorations and stunning lighting and small details that you took such great care in placing in order for us to have the very special day we so desired and have dreamed of for a year!

Thank you Pip you are amazing and may all those lucky people soon to get married enjoy the incredible magic and fairy dust you spread. We cant help but feel a little jealous and would love to do it all over again.

We wish you all the best, a great big fat thank you from us. We are still smiling. All our love, Anita & Matt.

Our wedding guests were a group of seasoned Jewish wedding goers who have been attending lavish nuptials since birth and every single one of them was blown away by the simple, thoughtful, beautiful and authentic quality of our wedding - which is exactly what we hoped to achieve. You were able to pull off the perfect mix of celebratory elegance and rustic casualness. At no point did it seem too much or too little and that is an incredibly, amazingly, impossibly delicate balance to achieve.

As two design and art minded, particular and detail oriented gay men we were a bit nervous about staging an event an ocean away, but you made it very easy and managed to read our minds and do things just as we would have done them if we’d been there ourselves.

Thanks also for bringing order and calm as soon as we arrived at the villa. I was pretty stressed when we got on the plane (mainly about other arrangements dealing with the two week stay) but the wedding details were completely under control and that allowed us to actually enjoy our vacation. You even managed to bring peace to our terribly nervous son!

The DJ, photographer and guitarists were all great. The bartender was particularly delightful :)

Thanks again a thousand times for the memories of a lifetime. We are thinking about getting married again next year :)

Marcus and I wanted to thank you for arranging our special day. A wedding is a really personal moment in two peoples lives. The stresses of organisation, the financial obligations, not to mention the faith you put into service providers you hardly know (who have just one opportunity to make your dream day all it can be) is no small undertaking. Marcus and I were blessed to have found you who introduced us to wonderfully, knowledgeable, personable, talented but above all empathetic people to help us make our “special day” all we dreamed it could be.
I have no hesitation in recommending Philippa and her amazing team.
— Jason & Marcus
I would be remiss if I did not commend you for do an AMAZING job. Our guests had the most complimentary things to say about all of the events (wonderful service, delicious food, beautiful locations, etc. etc.) and you. David and I are so pleased with every aspect of the wedding festivities and owe a debt of gratitude to you.
— Allison & David
We had such an amazing day. I want to do it all over again! My family and I want to say a huge thanks for everything you did for us. My parents realised how much we needed you on the day and you really went out of your way to make sure everything ran smoothly. That cake was gorgeous! Everyone is still talking about the wedding now.
— Katie, Akin & Emilio
We had the most wonderful day, everything looked so very beautiful and I thought it ran seamlessly.

I wanted to say thank you again for all of your work for our special day. I know that you spent many late nights and early mornings with me and had to endure my many last minute changes, you are so patient and amazing! The wedding day was truly magical, your styling and the flowers were stunning-everything looked so wonderful! Our friends raved about our wedding and the cocktail hour the night before (great hotel pick!). And all of your ideas, tips and details were right on point- your vendors and staff were also top notch. Thank you again!

Without Philippa our wedding would never have been the fairytale what we had in mind. She did everything to make it an unforgettable day for us. She provided us with the right people, and also arranged things that we never would have succeeded to do ourselves. Thanks to Philippa we had perfect catering, a glittering ceremony in the town square and a super dance party. We had over 100 guests and everyone was very excited! The most pleasing was on the day of our wedding we didn’t have to think about anything. Philippa solved everything that was needed! Many thanks Philippa! Keep up the good work!
