Holly and Susannah are the award-winning creative duo behind Revelry Events – London and Scotland based wedding planners who love rulebook-free weddings.
We produce imaginative, made-to-order weddings with a personal touch. For us, wedding planning is not just clipboards and time-keeping – we have our finger on the pulse of what’s new and next in events. We’re passionate about giving our couples a stress-free wedding planning experience to create a day they will never forget.
We take care of everything from full planning and creative design, to managing wedding budgets, sourcing wedding suppliers and venues and handling pesky wedmin.
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO START YOUR BUSINESS?
Holly kicked off the wedding planning business decades ago because she bloody loves a good wedding. Susie joined five years ago after a 10 years of working in PR and Events and wanting a career change. That was when we were both living in South East London, making big plans in tiny coffee shops and now we operate in both London and Scotland creating brilliant weddings for our couples all over the UK and abroad.
HOW DOES YOUR TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE?
No two days are the same. We could be out on venue visits, doing tastings with clients (it’s a tough job, especially the cake!), getting creative with the design, dutifully logging everything on a wedding budget spreadsheet or sourcing quotes for suppliers to name just a few.
WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF YOUR JOB?
Holly would probably say the design and Susie is a spreadsheet queen, but for both of us, seeing everything come together and how happy the couple are on the day is a great feeling.
AND WHAT IS THE WORST PART?
Right now – Covid 19
WHAT IS THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN?
WHAT WOULD YOU WANT COUPLES TO KNOW ABOUT WHAT YOU DO?
That we like variety, so we can guarantee your wedding isn’t going to look just like every other wedding we produce. You only need to look through our website to see the different styles on show that reflect the different personalities of all our couples.
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR COUPLES PLANNING A WEDDING?
Break it down into bitesized chunks to avoid feeling overwhelmed. If you just do a few jobs each month it will stop feeling like its too big to deal with.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR TIME OFF?
Well we both have kids so its normally involves pretending to be a dinosaur, x factor judge or digger, but given a choice then Netflix is a clear winner for ultimate vegging. Right now going outside is also up there, being the treat that it is!
Holly was meant to be going to Japan this month but obviously that came off the table, for Susie it would be exploring South America.
