Bespoke & Luxury Wedding Planners
Established in 2003, AP are one of London’s most experienced wedding planning companies. Uniquely, we specialise solely in weddings. This enables us to focus all our energies on delivering the discreet and highly attentive service that our couples expect and deserve.
Our friendly team of planners and designers are equally adept at organising small and intimate weddings as they are elaborate 5 day celebrations for 400 or more. And we have worked with many of the UK’s premier venues such as Blenheim Palace, Highclere Castle, Hampton Court Palace and Kensington Palace.
Although many of our couples live and marry in and around London and the Home Counties, we do in fact plan weddings throughout the UK and overseas. We also love planning weddings in the UK for our clients residing overseas, especially those in the USA, China and Russia.
Your journey with us commences with a private consultation so that we can get a clear understanding of your personalities and passions. We will then develop and design the wedding of your dreams, ensuring a stress-free engagement and a wedding day that can only be described as… Absolute Perfection!

Our Wedding Planning Academy
Alongside our wedding planning services we also run popular online wedding planner courses for aspiring wedding designers and DIY brides! Our Academy happens to operate one of the UK’s most intensive wedding planning courses and our latest training course is a comprehensive distance learning program that will teach you all about wedding planning, including setting up and running a wedding planning business. See our Wedding Academy for full details.
And as if planning and teaching weren’t enough, in our ever-so limited spare time we also write a Wedding Planning Blog offering useful advice, unique wedding ideas and practical tips on how to plan a perfect wedding.
For the benefit of our students and the DIY brides among you, along with an analysis of all latest wedding styles, trends and developments you will find that planning a wedding has never been easier with our useful, free wedding planning tips and tools, such as our wedding planning checklist, wedding calculator and wedding dress finder!
