Testimonials

We used Sam as a wedding co-ordinator for our big day and honestly it was the best money we spent on the whole thing. Just to be able to take the stress out of organising things on the day and being able to enjoy it was so great. Sam is also very amiable and professional, which is so important when you’re spending time together on your wedding day. The day went perfectly, despite some last minute dramas which she helped smooth over. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Sam was the wedding coordinator for our wedding in August and she was unbelievably amazing! She was so lovely and made sure that everything thing on the day ran smoothly. We had to postpone our wedding because of COVID and Sam was so helpful with contacting the venue and keeping us in the loop with what was going on. Before the day of the wedding she contacted all of the suppliers to go through timings to make sure the day ran smoothly. On the morning of the wedding Sam was fantastic and did all the little jobs that we were worrying about. This meant that the morning of the wedding was relaxing. Thank you so much Sam, you are such a lovely person and helped us to make our day perfect. We couldn’t recommend Sam enough!

What a lady! Sam was absolutely amazing from the minute we booked her. Due to the pandemic our first wedding got cancelled in 2020. Sam was very supportive and caring, She stayed in contact throughout and made myself, the bride, have hope! When our day finally came in July 2021, she was outstanding. Everything went smoothly and nothing was too much for Sam, she was happy to help in every way and she was a life saver! We got married at Sopley Mill and she knows the venue like the back of her hand she works very well with all suppliers. If your looking for a stress free wedding day, I highly recommend Sam at South Coast weddings!

Kerry

Sam was amazing! We booked South Coast Weddings for on the day but she did so much more. From the day we booked her, until the end of our wedding day Sam was a total gem. She was there for every little question and down the line, every Covid wobble. When we had to change our date she was able to recommend new suppliers, and her recommendations proved spot on.

On the morning of our wedding she helped us to set up and she did a fabulous job when eventually we just had to leave her to it! On the day I didn’t have to worry about anything because Sam was always there ahead of me and the day ran smoothly thanks to her. It really felt like we had a friend there, and we really couldn’t have done it without her. A total star and one of the best!

I had the absolute joy of working with Sam at a recent wedding I photographed and she is incredible! Highly professional, calm and organised in moments of stress, and cannot do enough for you – she’s wonderful!!

After our wedding was postponed from July to October during 2020 I knew I needed to do something to help me take the joy back and manage the continuing stress. Finding Sam was the answer to my prayers! She was always at the end of a call or text and would stop me and say ‘I’ll do that’, ‘I’ll contact them’ which allowed me to take a much needed deep breath! Planning a wedding in October came with a heartbreaking amount of revisions and stresses but Sam was always there to talk over changes and to soften any blows for us!! In the end we had the most incredible and seamless day, we didn’t lift a finger and our dream wedding emerged around us thanks to Sam’s coordination of all our incredible suppliers. We can’t thank her enough!

Antonia & Laith

We cannot recommend Sam and South Coast weddings enough! She is honestly one of the nicest people we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting and her ability to make sure your wedding is exactly the day you want it to be is incredible.
Communication was quick and emails/texts were replied to so quickly. She really put us at ease before and on the big day. A lot of our guests commented on how well the day went and that was in large part to Sam, she was always one step ahead of us and knew exactly what needed to be done.
If you’re planning a wedding or event then hire Sam! she will make your life better!

Jamie & Charlotte

Having just come down to earth following my daughter’s and son in law’s wedding on Sunday I HAVE to comment on the awesomeness that is Sam and South Coast Weddings.
Whilst I would never admit to my daughter I had pre wedding nerves, they disappeared when I met Sam. She has an uncanny ability to appear when you think of something that you should have done or you need something.
Thank you Sam for helping to make an incredible memory and I know you will do the same for many more families and friends who are lucky enough to share an event you have been involved with.

Sue

Sam at South Coast Weddings is brilliant! She literally saved our wedding day, after we had to find an entirely new venue with 24 hours notice. Sam stayed with us late into the evening the day before, when she hadn’t even been hired to do anything until the day, but she’s just great like that. She contacted venues, suppliers, even coach companies to take our guests to the new location – nothing was too much for her. What she pulled together looked incredible, and all our guests said you’d never have known how little time it was created in. Thanks to Sam, we still had the best day of our lives (which looked unlikely at one point!) To summarise, Sam is kind, thoughtful, professional, and very well-connected with local suppliers. She completely puts you, the couple, at the centre of things – she is brilliant and I could not recommend her enough!

Carly & James

I had the pleasure of working with Sam on a wedding in June that I was photographing. From the moment I met her she was so warm and welcoming!
Sam did everything to help make the day run smoothly and make the couple feel so relaxed and worry-free by knowing that she had taken care of all the details.
You can tell Sam loves her job and has a real passion for going above and beyond for her couples. As a wedding photographer I highly recommend Sam to all of my couples so they can have that on hand support on their wedding day!

Melissa

Ollie and I would like to say a huge thanks to Sam for her on-the-day help with our wedding. We had a festival style wedding, with quite a relaxed vibe, however, whilst our guests were relaxing and lapping up our free bar, Sam was working super hard behind the scenes to make sure all was running smoothly so that all of the bridal party could enjoy the day without any worry. We’d all been working very hard in the run-up to the weekend, so the fact we could let our hair down on the day and night was such a relief. Any random task, Sam was happy to help – from first-dance confetti cannon blasting to beer-holding during photos, plus everything she helped with in the evening. I wasn’t made aware of any issues, nor was I needed for anything – and that’s all I could ask for!

Lucy & Ollie

I’ve known Sam for a few years now, and knew right away I would be booking Sam for Day Of Co-ordination, but I couldn’t imagine what a support she would be. During the 2 years of planning, she was never too busy to answer my questions, make a recommendation, or help me make a tough decision. Even more than that, my Mum’s health meant that, at one point, we thought we might have to bring the wedding forward by nearly a year. Sam was a rock. She listened to my tears and panic, sympathised, and reassured, way above and beyond a “supplier”, I’m proud to call her a friend. We were very lucky and, in the end, could stick to our original date, and the day could not have gone smoother. Sam worked away in the background, making sure everything happened when it was supposed to, that everything looked spectacular and that all our guests had everything they needed, including my poorly Mum! The band we booked for our evening reception had to cancel on the morning of our wedding, due to illness, but sent a replacement, and Sam made sure that 1) I didn’t panic and 2) our new musicians felt right at home. I really can’t emphasise enough how lovely it was to have Sam working with us, and just how good she is at that job. You will not regret hiring Sam.

Danika & Phil

Sam is absolutely incredible. I met her just 24 hours before my friend’s wedding, which nearly had to be cancelled due to extreme weather conditions. Sam essentially replanned and organised a whole new wedding in about 8 hours. The end result was still absolutely in keeping with the bride and groom’s vision, but Sam took on all the responsibility and rallied her excellent network of local vendors and contacts to ensure the day went ahead. I cannot stress enough how great she is and if you are getting married in the area, she is an absolutely invaluable resource and wonderful human.

Rebekah Fletcher

Sam’s attention to detail and “can do” attitude makes her stand out from the crowd. Always friendly and willing to go the extra mile! Thank you for all your help and hard work in making such a memorable day

Sarah

I had the absolute pleasure of shooting a wedding Sam had helped plan. Due to storm damage the wedding venue and plan for the day was changed the day before the wedding! Sam seemed to just take this in her stride, was a calming influence throughout the whole process and on the day too. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend that a) you get a planner involved with your wedding and b) not just any planner, you use Sam!! She’s the best.

Mike

As a fellow Wedding Supplier I have worked with Sam on many events and quite simply she is the best. She is organised, co-ordinates the weddings to perfection and goes beyond and above what her role is, and with a huge smile on her face. Sam delivers the wedding of dreams to her clients and her weddings are the best I’ve been involved with.

Sadie

I have know Sam for many years and she has always been very professional, approachable and an amazing person to know. She is my immediate ‘go to person’ for any advice and even bizarre requests, to do with weddings. Sam has so many contacts and no matter what your wedding theme, she will know someone who can make your dream a reality. Anyone considering having Sam as their Wedding Planner, shouldn’t hesitate, it will be the best decision you will make.
