So in a nutshell, weddings were always events that other people
held, & I partied at, I never imagined that one day I would be
planning my own, I wasn’t one of those girls with ‘the dream’.
And then he asked me… ‘of course I would LOVE to’ said I & the rest, as they say, is history.
I didn’t really have a plan, no prince or white horses had ever graced my thoughts so I really was starting from scratch.
And then there was an advertisement for a wedding planning service
that caught my eye & an invitation to their opening that spoke to
me, ‘all wrapped up’ was the title, hmmm that sounded promising and what
a find they were…
Whilst I cannot claim that Colette & Kelly planned our day from
beginning to end, I hand-picked certain services that they provided
& I have to say that out of all the service providers I did deal
with, they were amongst the most friendly, reliable & professional.
Their manner during any collaborations (too informal to call
‘meetings’) we had was warm, inviting, un-intrusive and just plain old
helpful! So relaxed about everything and I always left confident that
their guidance was not only inspiring but I felt that they ‘got’ me.
I had never met Kelly or Colette prior to organising our wedding
but they both treated us as old friends without being over-familiar, a
very difficult skill to acquire. Their services to us were carried out
to an impeccable standard & they really did go above & beyond
sorting out my mid-calculations on the morning of the wedding &
bringing additional items that they thought may prove useful (which they
If I had my time over again, I would have gladly handed over the
reins & let them organise the lot, right from the start, taking out
all of the stress (I don’t think that Colette does stress, or at least
she doesn’t show it!)
I can honestly say that they were a pleasure & delight to deal
with and whilst I have no plans to ever get married ever again, I would
not hesitate to recommend their services to anybody planning a wedding
or other big event in the future.
A big ma-hoosive thank you to All Wrapped Up for your help and assistance. “

"Hi, Just want to say a massive thankyou for decorating our wedding
venue so lovely on our wedding day! I'm still on my honeymoon at the
moment so when I get back I will call in and thankyou both in person! I
will also write something on all wrapped up's page too! X x"
I could not have got through the planning without you (and emails) thanks so much girls!! You are worth your weight in gold xxx
huge thankyou to Colette & Kelly for sorting out the venue dressing
for our wedding in November. From our initial consultation we knew they
were the girls for the job, and they certainly didn't disappoint. On
the day, the room looked absolutely fantastic. It was exactly how we'd
imagined and started the reception off beautifully, and all of our guest
agreed. We also had the added bonus of knowing if there had been
anything we'd forgotten in the frenzy of wedding planning, we had a
couple of fairy godmothers on standby. If there's anything these girls
can't sort out for your wedding, it probably isn't worth having!

“I never thought the room where I had my reception
could ever look that nice it made the night and the decorations they did in
church added to my special day the ladies were fab and kept in contact
“Fantastic service, reliable,
“We wanted a "MOD" themed
wedding without it looking like a 60's Fancy Dress party. Colette was able to
give us loads of ideas and point us in the right direction for suppliers for
our "7in Record Invitations", MOD Target Table plan and Favours. Plus
she kept us sane when family got mega stressed as we are "too laid
back" as couple and I think they panicked we didn't have anything sorted!”
“The ladies were very approachable and helpfull they
had really good ideas and were able to give me everything I wanted.”
“An amazing personal service, i felt relaxed at ease
and they could almost read my own thoughts. The level of detail and service is
amazing, I cant reccomed highly enough.”
“I knew Colette and trusted her
opinion. Great personality and really loves doing what she does. It shows in
all her work, together with Kelly, they really want to make each day special.”
" I just wanted to send you a quick text , we're married! And the room looks AMAZING!! Thanks so much "
"I love that there is no hard sell, you simply tell us what we need and on the day our venue looked amazing "
"I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for all your help on our day, you went above and beyond what we expected and we felt like you was a huge part of our day in making sure it all went to plan, I actually feel a little sad that I wont be able to call you to talk to you every day now!"
"We started off just looking for a post box to hire and ended up almost renting the shop! We cant thank you enough Kelly & Colette are fantastic"
"As a man it was hard to take on the "planning" role due to my fiancee being out of the country alot but you certainly made me feel at ease and helped every step of the way, thank you"
“We would just like to thank Colette deeply for the help she gave us in
the planning of our Marquee wedding in Aug 2010, she went far and above
what we expected of her and she truely did work very hard for us. She
made sure everything went completly to plan, and even ran the bar at our
request, and sourced the bar staff for us, who were outstanding. I
have already recomeneded her to friends and would not hesitate to
recomend her further. Im sure there was problems and hic-ups throughout
the day, but thansk to Colette we carried on regardless, free to enjoy
the day. Thanks Colette, Matt & Fi”
I just want to say a big thank you from Andy and I, for all your help on
the day of our wedding and the lead up to it.
It was the best decision I made to use your decoration service, It meant
that I could relax and be pampered with all my friends and family and
not have a worry in the world on our big day.
The room looked amazing and you did everything how I wanted it and it
looked much better than I could have imagined it would look!
Thanks again for all your help
Ali & Andy"
"We both wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did to make
our wedding the perfect day it was. You definitely went above and
beyond for us and it was fabulous to know that we didn't have to worry
about anything. We both knew that we could 'turn-up' and enjoy our day
without needing to think of any potential issues, as we knew that
anything and everything would be dealt with in a calm and professional
manner (unlike the bride!)
Thanks again Colette"
"Using Colette and the wedding coordination service from 'All Wrapped U'p
was definitely something that I would recommend to others considering
When booking a wedding abroad I initially thought that there would be
less planning than having the big traditional UK wedding. This theory
was very quickly proven wrong. Different legal systems, nothing
available in the styles and themes I had chosen in the UK from bridal
magazines was available over in Barbados and then I had to factor in a
time difference and a much slower response time from the 'laid back
Bajans', all very frustrating whilst trying to continue a full time job
in the UK, be a mother plus plan a holiday for 20 !
Colette took over the coordination and the problems were dealt with by
her, I was able to get on with my job and my life and actually enjoy the
time coming up to the wedding rather than spend hours emailing photos
4000 miles away and negotiating prices and menu plans.
The service was professional, knowledgeable and good value for money and
I would definitely urge others booking a wedding to meet with Colette
and consider the options available"
"We wanted to thank you so much for working with us for the past year,
you have made planning the day of our dreams a lot less stressful and
fun. You turned all our years of dreams into reality with the littlest
of effort. It was wonderful to be able to sit back relax and enjoy our
day knowing we had confidence in you running it, and taking care of all
the "little things" Our day was made more special by you.
Thank you, Lisa & Mike xx"
