The ultimate guide to wedding planning in the South East

Why Choose Us

Did you know that it takes the average couple about 400 hours of planning, designing, setting up, and coordinating for a wedding? These stats are not too surprising when you think that this level of dedication is being achieved with a full-time job, children, and everyday responsibilities!

With Daniel Lay Event Services, you can save both your time and energy by allowing our experienced research team to take the reigns. Once they understand your vision, they’ll shortlist all the options tailored to suit you as a couple. This includes logistics, décor, and additional requirements.

What We Offer

Budget-Friendly Options

We suggest clients clearly understand their total budget and make a priority list. What type of venue are you looking for? How many guests are you inviting? Will it be a day or evening event? Will there be children?

From there on, our team will help you avoid making costly mistakes and provide options that suit your budget. We want to help you create your dream wedding without stressing over finances – it should be a day filled with love, laughter, and new beginnings.

Venue Options

Whether you opt for a rustic and classic, luxurious and glamorous, or classic and simple venue, our team will make sure your special day turns out exactly like you imagined it. If you have a date in mind, our team will also advise you on what venue to select that’ll be most appropriate for the weather at the time.
Our experts are skilled at working with many different types of venue options:

  • Blank canvas venues generally consist of marquees or teepees, as well as purpose-built venues.
  • A barebones venue, although more expensive, consists solely of the structure itself without any additional decorations or furnishings, enabling you to select precisely what you desire.
  • A pre-styled venue comes with additional items like furniture and could also have decorations, bars, and other items. Pre-arranged locations may still give you the option to rent different decorations, furnishings, and other items.
  • A religious venue consists of a church or any place of worship where the main ceremony takes place. Another venue may be required for the after-party.

Connections with Suppliers

Certain locations have designated suppliers that they require you to select from and do not permit any deviations. Daniel Lay Events has established reliable connections with experienced suppliers. We collaborate with various venues and can also assist with any additional services your venue may need.

We also provide a vast selection of products in-house, removing the need to book with multiple suppliers. Some of the products we offer in-house include:

Bar Hire

At Daniel Lay Events, we can provide a dry hire bar complete with bar staff. We offer a range of bar equipment and also offer the option for you to supply your own drinks, which is also more affordable!
