  • Meet Natalie

    Hello, I'm Natalie!

     

    I'm a Wedding Planner based in beautiful St Ives Cornwall and i LOVE to plan and design!

    I feel extremely lucky to of been brought up in such a stunning part of the world. It has elements of a tropical feel, with the white sandy beaches, turquoise ocean and even the odd palm tree or two! It's many a couple's dream to tie the knot here, with so many venues at your finger tips to choose from, not forgetting the incredible sea views.

     

    I've always had a huge passion for creativity, design and styling. Starting with my love for Art as a child, through to studying Art, Graphic Design and photography in college with a dream to become a Graphic Designer in the future. Once completing my course and leaving with a National diploma in hand, i knew it wasn't the route for me and i needed to be more hands on with my creativity.

    This then led me into working as a stylist in a top retail high street store. My creativity flourished, from being a personal shopper, to styling windows, mannequins and various seasonal displays throughout the store.

     

    Designing my own beach wedding along with my sisters boho inspired wedding, is where my passion for wedding planning and styling really took off.

    This then evolved into Natalie Blake Wedding Design, which is now where my heart lies.

     

    There's nothing i love more than bringing my clients visions to life, adding to their love story and seeing the joy on their faces making lasting memories on their special day.

     

    If on the occasion i'm not planning or coordinating weddings, you will find me with salty hair and sand between my toes with my beautiful family.

  • Wedding Planning

     

    Intimate elopement or a large wedding guest list?..

    All the little fine details are as equally important.

     

    Full Wedding Planning & Design

    For those that need complete guidance from the start of planning, to on the day coordination and set up.

    Price is dependent on level of assistance required.

     

    This is a great option if you’re a bit overwhelmed with all the planning, and really need some guidance and advice all the way through, every step of the way.

    Usually, we would start to work on the planning about a year before the wedding and would spend between 250-300 hours on it.

    We can be as involved as much or as little as you would like.

    We would work together to list out the areas you would want to take care of yourself or you can just sit back, leave it in our safe hands to take good care of, and be totally stress-free!

    We can take care of

    everything from sourcing and booking suppliers, dress fitting appointments, sourcing decor, creating fabulous bespoke

    Pinterest boards for inspiration and much much more... but most importantly you will have unlimited phone call and email support as and when needed.

    This full planning package also includes one of our fun Hen Crafting Workshops for you to enjoy with your besties (There’s more information further down on our website about these) and it also includes On the day Coordination if required at your venue.

    Partial Wedding Planning

    If you just need some guidance with finishing touches in the final stages or advice part way through.

    Price is dependent on level of assistance required.

     

    This includes 3 months blocked together, in which we can focus on any key areas where you need our expertise.

    This may be sourcing suppliers for decor and props, tying up loose ends, bringing everything together and calling around all suppliers booked to confirm they are all organised for the big day.

    This service can be tailored to suit your requirements.

    Wedding Day Coordination

    If you're confident about planning your big day, we can just be there on the day to help set up your venue, and coordinate tirelessly making sure everything goes to plan throughout the day.

    On the day Coordination is great for the reassurance to couples to know that the running of their special day is in our safe capable hands, leaving them relaxed and stress free.

     

    What's included?

     

    • Upto 10 hours of Coordination on the day
    • Initial phone call meeting
    • Meeting one month prior to the Wedding to run through any final details
    • Create a timeline schedule for the Wedding day
    • Contact all suppliers one week prior

    • Guidance and support to the Bride and Groom throughout the day where needed
    • Discreet handling of any unexpected eventualities that may occur
    • Toast mastering and announcements if required

    Design & Style

    Working together with your personal tastes and ideas, along with our design experience, we will start by creating a selection of beautiful mood boards for inspiration for you. With all of our focus being aimed at just the visual aspects of your day, all of the important fine details are never forgotten about.

    Venue Style & Set Up

    This is the perfect package if you’re confident in planning all aspects of your wedding along with having the creative touch yourself to know what you’d like visually, but just need the expertise of an experienced stylist to style and set up your venue prior to or on the morning of your wedding day to alleviate stress and have it all ready and awaiting for your arrival.

    Supplier Sourcing

    Helping you find the most fabulous suppliers to create your special day, which takes place for upto 10 hours over a period of a month.

    This service works really well alongside the Design & Style package as we will already have a clear idea of what décor we will need to source using our list of trusted local suppliers to get you the perfect items that you require.

    We also search tirelessly to find you the most suitable suppliers to complete your special day, making this time consuming job so much less stressful for yourself.

    What our clients say

    Dorothy

    " Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

    Natalie was the best person for the occasion! Obviously it was my husband (then fiancé) who had organised the whole thing with Natalie but the whole experience was so much more beautiful because of Natalie's amazing work in giving us the best engagement set up!! It was absolutely beautiful and literally took both of our breathe away as my husband was not quite sure what to expect as he’d let Natalie do her thing and it was above and beyond what I dreamed proposal would be and so happy Natalie was the one to provide that service for us! Natalie is very responsive and so kind to communicate with, I would recommend her to anyone even those who don’t live in Cornwall (we’re from Rugby)! We would give Natalie a 10/10 for everything ☺️ Thank you once again Natalie, you’re wonderful at what you do - God bless! "

    Dominique

    "I had the pleasure of working with Natalie on a wedding. You could see in every detail and her commitment on the day that she really put her heart and soul into making the day perfect for her bride and groom. Nothing was too much. I would recommend her 100 times over "

    Godwin

    "Natalie was superb! Everything went to plan and ran smoothly and the designs were absolutely beautiful! The most beautiful setting I’ve ever seen! I told her what I wanted but it was even better for what I expected! I’m still shocked at how beautiful it was, I would recommend anyone to Natalie, it wasn’t only beautiful but it was affordable, for the price it was great!! Thank you again Natalie!!"

    Louise & Adam

    "Natalie is not only incredibly creative, but also I real sweetheart! She has helped me immensely with my upcoming wedding. She has never pushed any ideas on to me, but rather helped me refine my own vision and offered me support and inspiration.

    I'm confident that my wedding will not only run smoother, but also be far more decadent with her involvement.

    Brides, get her on board and enjoy a much less stressful preparation! Xxx"
