Testimonials

Lauren and Andrew Clee

“The stunning results and the vast amount of fantastic compliments we received from the guests is testament to the thought and effort that went into planning the wedding. One of our French guests works with luxury venues in Paris and he said it was one of the most beautiful weddings he’s ever experienced! It was an absolute pleasure working with you, we really don’t know how we’d have pulled-off the wedding of our dreams without your help. Lauren and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts…for us both it was the most stunning day that we’ll never forget”.

John Nassari

“When looking for a planner to put together my exhibition launch at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London, I knew I needed someone that was not only familiar with the hotel, and an event specialist, but also someone who could also act as a figure head between luxury partners – Melanie was my first choice. She planned my launch to perfection and worked tirelessly on all the details from the micro to the macro. The event was an outstanding and dazzling success. Many thanks to Melanie and her team for making it the highlight of my 25 year career”.

Rachel & Alex Winchester

“It’s taken a while to write this testimonial because it’s been difficult to put into words just how incredible Melanie and her team were for us on our wedding day. The brief was complicated, the location remote and our expectations high. Melanie helped us execute our vision perfectly. The results were outstanding. So perfect, we want to do it all again next year! If you’re looking for someone who truly cares, Melanie is the perfect choice. Her attention for detail is outstanding and her efforts tireless. Our guests were simply blown away by the end results and we couldn’t be more thankful. It was the best day of our lives”.

“Our decision to work with Cranberry Blue was the first and best decision that we made in the planning of our daughter’s wedding. It has been a joy to have Melanie involved every step of the way, her attention to detail, commitment, high levels of professionalism and positive personality have been hugely appreciated by the whole family. The day surpassed our already high expectations, it could not have gone better – it was absolutely perfect in every way. We had the most wonderful time and will be forever grateful to Melanie for all of her discretion, support, ideas, hard work, patience and meticulous planning. We will never, ever forget what an incredible day it was”.

“Oh Melanie. Where to even begin?! Melanie Helen is a God-send, she is the epitome of cool, calm, collected and in complete control. You were just incredible. My memories of the evening will forever make me smile. It was absolutely perfect on every level and I am so so happy I got to work with you.

Stephen & Shirley Shales

“After meeting Melanie for the first time and receiving a beautifully presented and highly personalised proposal, there was really only one choice. The relationship worked brilliantly over the course of the next fourteen months, giving us structure, detail, appropriate prompts, reminders and creative input and suggestions throughout. On the day itself, things ran seamlessly…everything truly surpassed our expectations and blew us and all of our guests away – thank you so much from both of us!”

Suzie and Nick Duru

“We still can’t believe how amazing our wedding day was, and that was down to Cranberry Blue’s hard work throughout. Melanie and her team are all so friendly and they bring great energy to the whole planning process. Their meticulous attention to detail meant that we felt confident and supported throughout the whole process. Our wedding day exceeded all our high expectations. It even more than we had hoped – intimate, fun, meaningful and with plenty of laughter – we will keep these memories for life, thank-you.”

GC Couture

“When looking for an event planner to work with us on the launch of our 2016 cake collection, we wanted someone who understood our ethos, brand and dealing with clients in the high-end market. When we met Melanie and told her about our plans and the event style we wanted, she picked it up very quickly. The professionalism Melanie portrayed was superb, she has all the right attributes, professionalism and vision one could ask for. Melanie and the team are great fun to work with, easy going and nothing is too much trouble.”

Alina and Ahmed Jameel

“My husband and I can honestly say that it was Melanie’s patience, attention to detail and creativity that helped us to create our perfect day. Just after the first meeting my husband and I were convinced that Cranberry Blue was the perfect wedding planners for us – it was the best decision that we have made and I will certainly miss the wedding planning process. Melanie and her team worked with us in every aspect of the day and went to extraordinary lengths to ensure perfection – it was a truly incredible day”.

Gabi & Peter Sugden

“I was utterly blown away with how stunning the marquee looked – Melanie and her team had created my fantasy wedding! It was absolutely perfect, from the smallest detail to the sweeping view of the room – just breath-taking. I cannot recommend Melanie highly enough. If we were to do it all again the only change I would make would be to have involved Cranberry Blue earlier!”
