E.g. most beautiful weddings and events. | West African origin.
I’m Edmina, a bespoke wedding and event planner for people (like you) who enjoy the finer things in life, but also appreciate the value of a fixed budget.
And I believe YOUR WEDDING IS ALL ABOUT YOU.
Your desires. Your dream. Your vision for your big day.
I design, plan and style unique weddings that effortlessly encapsulate who you are — as a couple and as individuals with your own set of values, sense of personal style and cultural heritage.
Working with style savvy couples from all walks of life, I also specialise in design-led West African wedding planning. As someone who shares the same heritage and understands the unique elements that bring a day like this together, I take the stress out of planning a traditional wedding and put you in touch with suppliers who understand your cultural needs.

You DON’T need the budget of a celebrity to have the wedding of your dreams.
BUT YOU DO NEED A COLLABORATIVE PARTNER who knows what they’re doing to make it happen.
- A partner who makes planning fun again.
- A partner who knows when to save and when to splurge.
- A partner who works tirelessly to make your vision a reality so you don’t have to — on time, within budget and with minimal fuss.
And a partner with a database of handpicked suppliers that are at the forefront of their field — from florists, to wedding cake makers, to calligraphers, to bridal wear boutiques — and who share your values and love the challenge of a new brief.
I’ve trained with the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners (UKAWP) and renowned Carter Nendick Events, so you can sleep easy knowing that a professional has meticulously organised everything down to the last detail. Leaving you to wake up feeling RELAXED and EXCITED on your wedding day, ready to enjoy the celebration with your loved ones.
