Oh So Honest – Client Testimonial

We are delighted to be able to share this testimonial with you from the parents of the bride at our recent Caerphilly Castle wedding for which we had the pleasure of providing Oh So Supportive – On The Day Coordination.

Dear Samantha,

The smooth running of the Wedding Day was due in no small part to your professionalism, efficient and yet unobtrusive organisation. Eleri and Tim had worked so hard for over a year to get every detail right but your contribution on the day was critical to the very successful coordination and implementation of the range of activities involved. With such a large and impressive event it is difficult for members of the wedding party to manage all the matters needing attention in a detached and dispassionate manner. You provided that cool and caring attention in a relaxed, friendly and approachable manner. Your role was an important contribution to the great joy and happiness we all experienced on the day. It took all the pressure off the family and we were able to enjoy the day without a worry.

The photographs that you took were lovely…they clearly illustrate your flair and artistic ability.

Many many thanks

with kindest regards and best wishes

Margaret and Peter Randall

Eleri and Tim ~ Key To My Heart (Wales vs. South Africa)

Oh So Perfect – Wedding and Event Portfolio

After proposing in a palace in South Africa, Welsh lovely Eleri Randall married her South African fiancé Tim Satow in a castle in South Wales…

The ceremony was held in Dinas Powys, then guests were transported over to Caerphilly Castle by London bus for a glorious, sunny celebration. Oh So Perfect were thrilled to be involved in the On The Day Coordination of this Autumn wedding.

The seating plan resembled a wishing tree and was decorated with keys and hearts to match the ‘Key To My Heart Theme’

The wedding cake and cupcakes were made by the groom’s cousin and transported all the way from London.

The tables were named after Welsh and South African rugby players in honour of Eleri and Tim’s shared love of rugby and their home countries. Guests were given charity pins from Cancer Research Wales where a donation had been made in lieu of favours. 

Guests were lucky enough to enjoy some afternoon sunshine in the grounds of the castle…

Guests were treated to a traditional Welsh Male Voice Choir after the speeches… the acoustics in the great hall were incredible! This was such a lovely surprise for the groom’s guests, most of whom were visiting Wales for the first time…

As ever, Oh So Perfect’s wedding planner Samantha was quick on her feet in the evening creating this beautiful display for the sweetie table using all the discarded bouquets and top table decorations as the room was transformed for the evening.

By the evening, the lighting had changed to match the colour scheme and the atmosphere reflected the remainder of the night’s entertainment…

And finally, as we said goodbye for the evening, Caerphilly Castle glowed in it’s usual picturesque lighting for passers by to look at and dream of their own fairytale wedding in Wales!

Diary of a Weather Girl

Diary of a Wedding Planner

When I Facebooked/tweeted earlier this week “Rain, rain go away, come again another day… Just not Saturday, because that’s Eleri and Tim’s wedding day…” I was only being half serious, and when I later informed followers that I’d be performing a series of rain dances in preparation for just a tiny bit of blue sky this weekend, I really wasn’t being serious at all!


The weather this week has been absolutely dire – between those sneaky false offerings of blue sky it has simply poured down with rain, not drizzled a bit or been ‘slightly spitting’, really, truly poured, and believe me I’d know, I’ve been caught in it enough times (my leopard print loathers are still drying out!).

So when I crossed my fingers earlier this week and whispered “please, please, please” to the sun gods I really didn’t think there was much hope, but it seems someone up there must have heard my plea because look! Blue sky and big, fat, round sunshine forecast for Saturday surrounded by days and days of rain – hoorah!


It seems there may be some magic in talking to the skies after all… or perhaps on this occasion it’s just a lucky weather forecast… either way!

We hope it stays dry for your plans this weekend too!

With love,
Samantha x
