About Us

Hi, I´m Marie and I started A Day to Cherish to give couples a professional planning and design service for their weddings and civil partnerships.

To cherish means to nurture and to care and that we what we do with every single wedding entrusted to us. We give practical advice and help with all the preparations for your wedding day together with the design flair and creativity to make your celebration unique and memorable.

I started my career in the Police far away from the world of weddings! I soon realised that important events and projects don´t just happen and my attention to detail made me an excellent planner. I learnt so much about communicating with different people, negotiating and above all, staying calm in any situation.

Later I studied with The Institute of Professional Wedding Planners, successfully receiving a Diploma with Merit (a course accredited with the NCFE) and then owned a franchise with a leading venue styling company, giving me valuable experience in wedding styling and design.

Now I run A Day to Cherish from my home in Wiltshire, within easy reach of the beautiful city of Bath and some of the most fantastic wedding venues in the South West. I use my conservatory and my log cabin design studio to give you a calm and stress-free environment to enjoy planning your wedding and making decisions. My log cabin is full of wedding accessories for inspiration and a sample table and chairs to try out design ideas.

I have planned and styled so many weddings over the years but each one has been special to me. I get huge satisfaction from getting to know my couples, bringing their dreams to life and making sure that every last detail is arranged. I´m proud to have saved them some money too. With a large network of suppliers, I can often negotiate discounts to help wedding budgets go further.

All our services are bespoke, so you can choose from as little or as much as you need from us. Visit our services page for more details and our thanks page to find out how we have helped our couples recently.

Do get in touch - we´d love to find out more about your plans and how we can give you a day to cherish forever.

With kindest regards
