Based in the heart of the Cotswolds, Finesse Planning, run by Ruth Hunter has recently been awarded the title of Best Wedding Planner (Independent) – South West for The 2013 Wedding Industry Awards. Beating off other wedding planners from across the South West, Ruth is now in the running along with four other companies for the national title that will be announced at the annual award ceremony in January at the Bloomsbury Hotel in London.

Ruth started Finesse Planning over 5 years ago after a long career in hospitality and events and since then has worked tirelessly to build the company up to be one of the leading wedding & event companies in the South West and South Wales, with her

co-ordinator Deeanne Felman, overseeing the South Wales office.

Ruth prides herself on their friendly and highly creative services and offers a very personal, 24/7 approach to wedding & event planning. Having worked on weddings from 14 to 400 guests, she has produced a variety of different styles and themes that were all a true reflection of the client.

“It is my aim to help couples plan a wedding that when guests leave at the end of the night they leave thinking ‘Yes! That was definitely their wedding! ’. Although I help them with the planning, all of the decisions are made by my clients to ensure a true representation.” says Ruth.

Wedding & Event Planning is still a relatively new concept to the UK, with it being more popular in the US, however, more couples and their families are seeing the benefit of using a professional and experienced wedding planner. There is a misconception amongst most people that wedding planners are for the rich and famous only but Ruth works with a large variety of people from nurses and teachers to CEO’s and directors. The reason for using a wedding planner are usually similar and this could be that they are simply too busy and need someone to do the groundwork or they don’t have a clue on how to make sure everything not only looks fabulous but runs well too.

Another benefit of using Ruth is her knowledge of the wedding industry and quality suppliers. She is able to ensure that the companies used to produce an event are of the highest standard and is able to negotiate excellent discounts that are passed directly to her clients.

As well as full and partial planning, Ruth offers a variety of different services to suit any size of event and budget and specialises in marquee weddings. She is one of the most experienced wedding planners in this field and offers a dedicated Marquee Wedding Management service which is perfect for those looking to get married at home or an unconventional venue. To see the benefit of her services, you simply need to read the abundance of testimonials from happy clients on her website.

To find out how Ruth can help ensure your planning of your wedding or event is not only enjoyable but goes to plan, contact her for a free consultation – – 07580 075558
