We used Laura for our company festival in June 2021. Laura very quickly captured the spirit of the event what we wanted and turned that into a magical two day event that exceeded all our expectations. She sourced high quality musicians, speakers, tents, seating, food and drink partners to dovetail perfectly into our themes of “local” and “sustainable”. Laura supported us with regular check-points, was supportive of our special requests and was extremely hard-working during the event itself, making sure we all had a wonderful time. She also kept perfectly to budget!
I would love to have another event to justify working with Laura again as it was such an enjoyable experience, but in the meantime we are re-living the memories.

This is the third wedding that Laura has worked with us on. Obviously owing to the pandemic this has been the most challenging of all 3! We, like lots of other families, have had to change dates, cancel and rearrange suppliers etc., review the guest numbers etc Laura’s help was invaluable - helping rearrange dates with suppliers, coming up with alternative suppliers where necessary, keeping up to date with the ever changing rules and importantly providing support to all of us at this stressful time - always upbeat and offering constructive advice. The small wedding (adhering to government guidelines) was in the end a perfect day! My daughter and her husband both agreed that it was far more than they had ever hoped for - and that actually they would not have changed it at all. The intimacy of such a small group of family and friends was wonderful and we were all able to spend so much more time with each other than the usual large wedding party would allow. We were also able to have such things as silver cutlery, cut glass, individually embroidered napkins and so on - which would have been cost prohibitive for a larger wedding. The photographs too benefited from smaller numbers - with wonderful shots of all the guests - many individually - again something which doesn’t always happen with large numbers. All in all a perfect day. We can not recommend Laura enough - her support has been invaluable - and I think we all now count her as a family friend.

Laura was AMAZING! I can’t recommend her highly enough - her support, expertise and experience was invaluable in the run up to the wedding - I don’t know how I would have coped without her organisational skills and attention to detail and style! On the day itself she was brilliant - my husband and I were able to completely relax knowing she had everything under control. All we had to do was enjoy!
Thank you so much Laura - we are so grateful to you for helping make our day so fabulous!

I've worked with Laura on several large events over the last twelve months and every event has been an absolute pleasure. She's seriously organised and cool under pressure. It's freed me up to focus on hosting knowing that everything else is taken care of. Definitely make the decision to work with Laura!

Laura is absolutely fantastic at what she does, we couldn't have asked for a more knowledgable and happy person to help plan and run our wedding day. Laura's suggestions and experience made our wedding so very special and she went above and beyond from our first meeting, right up until 12am on our wedding night! I can honestly say she made our wedding day the best we could have asked for.

I don’t know where to begin in saying how amazing Laura is! Laura was an absolute dream to work with, helping us plan in the months leading up to our wedding and co-ordinating on the day itself. We really wouldn’t have had the day we had envisioned without her.
Laura had thought of all the small details and was such a calming influence amidst all of the stress/excitement. On the day, Laura styled the venue beautifully and took care of all of the suppliers so everything ran seamlessly. We cannot recommend Laura highly enough – so organised, creative and an all-round lovely person. Thank you!

If you're hesitating, don't! We enjoyed every moment of working with Studio 81. There was no task too big that we threw Laura's way, her knowledge & expertise in the industry are simply priceless. Laura introduced us to many brands & suppliers we had not heard of before & the relationship she has built with those suppliers is a credit to her success. I was introduced to Studio 81 by my Mother-in-Law, reluctantly agreeing to hire a Wedding Planner was the best decision I made throughout the planning process. I was convinced I could do it all myself, little did I know how much goes into planning a wedding! Laura took the stress out of every situation & put us at ease when making all the big decisions. I am so pleased we found her, since now she is a very good friend of the family - if that hasn't convinced you then I don't know what will!
