I’m delighted to be able to share with you a lovely note I received from Jane and Colin Williams who got married earlier this month at The Oxwich Bay. I love my job and it has so many rewards but this is the icing on the cake! Thank you for letting me be part of you day.x.

July 2013

I have just had the most magical wedding conceivable at Oxwich Bay, on the Gower largely made possible by Gail from Eleanor Gail, wedding planner.

I was hugely sceptical at first about getting a wedding planner, however during a short lull whilst getting ready on my wedding day I was able to reflect how calm I felt and realised it was because I knew at that very moment Gail was behind the scenes organising all the little details that otherwise would have been mine to deal with.  I could take a step back, relax and enjoy myself and why, now I can remember more of that special day than many others can of theirs.

I live three hours away from the venue and did not realise how problematic this would be until I started to try and organise the details.  By having Gail she was able to source local suppliers, get quotes and make suggestions.  She did the bulk of liaising and all I had to do was make final decisions and then leave the rest to Gail.  If there were any problems it was Gail who sent e-mails and negotiated.

Gail was indispensable in the final weeks before the wedding.  She chased up all the loose ends, made sure that I made all payments at the right time and even made my table decorations for me.  Without Gail I honestly don’t think my wedding would have been the overwhelming success that it was.  Her professionalism and thoughtfulness was exemplaryand I would now consider her a true friend.  I will be recommending to all my friends to get married in Wales just so that Gail can be their planner.

My message, (from a complete convert to having a wedding planner) to anyone who is planning a wedding, or in the final months and weeks of the process would be to seriously consider in engaging Gail to help you.  Her presence just on the day of the wedding was worth any amount of money.


Finally on a personal note I would like to Thank Gail from the bottom of my heart in creating, as one close friend said, “the perfect day!”


Jane and Colin
