Claire Clarke Testimonials

If you are looking for the best wedding planner out there, look no further! After finding our dream wedding venue (Castello Monaci) we reached out to Claire and various other wedding planners to find our perfect match. We immediately realised that Claire is the one! She truly loves her work, is extremely organised, creative and so fun to be with! In the 2 years leading up to our wedding we were in constant contact with Claire. We have no idea how she manages everything, as she responds immediately to any query you have making you feel like your wedding it the most important one for her. She is very efficient, reliable and stays calm under stress. When she work on your wedding she really puts her heart into it, for example when a transport bus didn’t arrive as scheduled (out of her control) she was planning to drive guests herself to their hotels. She has also been very flexible with any new last minute ideas we had and tried to incorporate them wherever possible. Her creativity is also fantastic, Claire managed to bring our thoughts of a dream wedding to reality. Claire works with the best vendors out there, but doesn’t limit you on proposing your own vendors. Worth mentioning that our wedding was very international bringing in various cultures together, which hasn’t been difficult for Claire at all. During our 3 days wedding weekend we had so much fun with Claire, she is just such a positive and energetic person to be with, we really enjoyed just spending time with her.

We miss our daily messaging with Claire ever since our wedding finished. If we decide to do a vow renewal, Claire would be the first one we would approach!

If you chose Claire as your wedding planner, you are in the best hands to have the wedding of your dreams.

Thank you for everything Claire, we will treasure our wedding and collaboration with you forever! Love, V&V x”

“Just wanted to send a quick email to say thanks for organising such a fantastic wedding for C & A. It looked beautiful and went like clockwork which was very much to the credit of you and your team.”

Sister of C & A

“Words cannot express our gratitude for Claire. Our wedding was a magical fairytale. It was the perfect wedding and we couldn’t have done it without her. I knew I wouldn’t be the easiest to work with coming from a design background, and very high expectations on the vision how I wanted the wedding to look. However, designing for yourself is incredibly difficult, so I put my faith in Claire to translate and execute our vision. Claire nailed it and went above and beyond anything we could have ever imagined. Claire is an incredible planner, attentive, organized, detail oriented, and resourceful. The moment we hired Claire, we felt no stress or worry for our wedding. We knew we were in good hand and had nothing to stress or worry about because she had it all handled.
We couldn’t have asked for a better planner. Thank you Claire! You were an absolute gem!

Leisa & James

“Claire was a phenomenal wedding co-ordinator on our wedding day, nothing was too much trouble for her and she was so attentive and kind. She was great with both our guests and our suppliers and made sure everything ran smoothly with timing issues etc all ironed out before anyone even noticed there was an issue! Having Claire there was like having a really close friend who is organised and wants to look after you on your special day – she looked after my veil, my lipstick, my handbag and even made sure my favourite drink was waiting for me at the reception when I arrived! Claire helped with our photographer too, ensuring that everyone was in place – with over 100 guests, it was very helpful! Claire is a superstar and I have told everyone I know about her!”

Lucy & Chris

“When you choose to get married somewhere like the Corinthia Hotel London, you have high expectations. I’m happy to say Claire met, and exceeded, our expectations with her professional yet personable style. The fact that our wedding day went absolutely to plan is testament to her planning and organizational ability.”

James and Hannah

“Claire clearly knows her trade, loves her work and truly understands the importance of customer service and she and her team helped make our event a success. We felt confident with the team that were organising our event and this allowed us to relax and enjoy every minute of our day and our guests to do the same”

“Claire’s appointment, her passion and dedication ensured the build-up and day itself ran smoothly. She is a credit to the Corinthia, you could say, she is the little red heart in your Baccarat crystal chandelier!”

Elizabeth and Russell

“The wedding was absolutely amazing and it wouldn’t have been nearly as perfect if it wasn’t for your superb efforts and hard work. Thank you so much for making our day so special, it seems like it was all a bit of a dream now as the day went so quickly but it far surpassed all of my expectations! You made me, and all of us, feel so relaxed knowing we were in safe hands.”

Maxine and Gareth

“You were a delight to work with in the lead up to this event and it makes such a difference to an event manager like me to know that everything is 100% covered at the other end. The whole process really was faultless and a huge amount of that was down to your wonderful organisational skills.”

Assistant Events Manager, Corporate Bank

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making the organising of (our client’s event) so easy, I really enjoyed working with you, nothing was ever too much trouble and your attention to detail was amazing.”

Operations Director, Events Company on behalf of Blue-Chip Client

“You have been ABSOLUTELY fantastic throughout our entire wedding process. You made the whole thing so much less stressful, pointed us in the right direction at every turn and completely changed the entire experience. The wedding went from something which was a real worry and incredibly stressful, to something which was really enjoyable to arrange. We absolutely could not have done the day without you. Not only did you totally change the planning process for us, but you also ensured that on the day itself everything went to plan. I CANNOT thank you enough. I would recommend that anyone planning a wedding comes to you, your calm manner, reassuring words and phenomenal organisation skills are utterly priceless.”

Sophie and Todd

“I don’t even know where to start with the post but Claire is amazing!

We had a blessing and marquee wedding reception at my parents house so had to get in every single supplier needed.

Claire ran the on the day co ordination from start to finish! From helping with last minute decorations when she arrived, to handing out umbrellas as guests arrived (yes it rained on our day) , ensuing all suppliers had power and set up in the right places.

To things that were down to other suppliers like pouring the champagne toast to ensure our day didn’t over run and tidying tables keeping everything looking beautiful as evening guests arrived.

I honestly can’t thank Claire enough it’s down to her that I got to really enjoy and soak up the atmosphere of my day than having to worry about all of those bits myself on the day!

If you are thinking of hiring Claire it’s no brainier she is going to be your most valuable asset to having a stress free day you be always dreamed of!”

D and P

“Claire was absolutely amazing at ensuring our wedding day was the most special day of our lives. From the moment we met her for the first time, we knew she’d not let us down. Her attention to detail, and genuine desire to truly want to get to know us to give us the most amazing day ever was evident each time we met to discuss and plan our day. She helped us develop our ideas and create a spectacular wedding that our guests still talk about today! We can honestly say that Claire’s personal touch has left an ever lasting memory with us and that we we now see Claire as a friend of ours. If only we could do it all over again… “

Catriona and Tom

“Thank you soo much Claire, for your help on the day. Claire was super thorough and efficient. She didn’t need any extra guidance and knew exactly what needed to be done. Someone had smashed a glass in the floor. She was super hands on and was literally clearing up the broken glass. Amazing help from Claire.”

Manju and Deepesh

“It was an absolute pleasure working with you Claire, thank you for all your hard work during our wedding week and in the months leading up to it!

You went the extra mile to ensure everything went perfectly; everything from selecting the decor to coordinating all the suppliers over the week, to reconfiguring the hair and make up schedule for the billionth time! It was of huge comfort to us both knowing that you were with us every step of the way and had every detail, minute by minute, covered!

On the days of the events, it was great to know that you were liaising with all the suppliers on the ground, but you still found time to check in with us to make sure we were ok, and reassure us that everything was going to plan!

We would highly recommend Claire to help plan your special day!”
