Here at Host, we have had the pleasure of working with amazing couples. We are so honoured to have played a part in planning these moments that have created such special memories. The following images showcase a selection of our weddings over the years.
Eleonore and Kiran's special day took place at the beautiful Hamswell House near Bath. The day was full of love and joy and incorporated both Hawaiian and English elements as a nod to the Eleonore and Kiran's heritage.

Elizabeth and Joe's special day started at the historic Bristol Cathedral followed by a reception at Grittleton House. The day was full of love and joy and incorporated both New Orleans and English elements as a nod to the Elizabeth and Joe's heritage.
“As an American marrying an Englishman in the UK, I naturally needed help managing the time difference with vendors and also making sure I was honouring British traditions, whilst incorporating my New Orleans heritage too. Straight away, I knew Olivia was the perfect fit. She was kind, easy going, had a sense of humour but wasn't afraid to share opinions which I welcomed. It was an absolutely perfect day and I came along with a lifelong friend. Thank you for everything Olivia !”

Sophie and James celebrated their special day in the Autumn at the fabulous venue The Frogmill. Guests travelled from all over the world and the day was filled with so much love.
“I cannot put into words how valuable it was to have Olivia as part of our team! Her professionalism is second to none and every single other supplier, including the venue, said what a pleasure it was to have Olivia coordinating everything. Even our family and friends commented that she was like a ‘magic wedding fairy’ working behind the scenes to ensure a seamless wedding day. I couldn’t recommend Olivia’s services higher.”
Pip and Lissie’s wedding was held at the family home, within the grounds so had such a personal touch from the get go. Classic cars filled the driveway as many of the guests took part in a rally from the church to the reception. Classic, elegant styling filled the wooden poled marquee which sat majestically on the lawn. A pleasure to be part of!
“Olivia, we are so so thrilled that you were a part of our big day, we really couldn’t have done it without you. Your hard work ethic, diplomacy and organisational skills were outstanding, we were so impressed with your work and we felt very lucky indeed to have you. Several of our guests commented on how well thought-out the day was, and that is all thanks to you!”
With Tamsin’s love of horses, it was only natural for her to arrive side saddle to her ceremony. Held at George’s beautiful family home, the ceremony took place under a gorgeous, old oak tree with a close friend officiating. Patch the dog also had the duty of bearing the rings and did a fab job! A real country wedding in the heart of Somerset.
“Just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work, we’ve had so many compliments on how magical the wedding was, it was incredible!”
Amy and Ollie chose to host their ceremony and reception at this truly magnificent venue, The Lost Orangery in Wiltshire. The venue oozes Italian charm and offers so much flexibility to hold the day you desire. It was such a pleasure to be part of their special day!
A delight to work with, Robyn and Richard brought in so many personal touches. Their wedding was just perfect in every way. The view from their marquee spanned 3 counties...it was just spectacular!
“Olivia was truly the reason that our wedding day came together so perfectly. I hadn't appreciated quite how many parts need to come together for a wedding to work, and Olivia just has this air about her that she has everything under control, and she truly does! Enlisting Olivia's help was simply the BEST decision we made, she is so friendly, enthusiastic and organised, I knew from our first meeting that she would take so much of the stress away in the run up to our wedding, and she did.
A very special golden wedding anniversary celebration for family and friends at the delightful Maunsel House in Somerset. Fireworks, coconut ceremonies, cakes, drinks and games all featured at this three day reunion. I spend a lot of my time working with newly engaged couples, so to help Oomi and Hebti celebrate 50 years of marriage was very touching.
“Olivia helped us plan an amazing party weekend. Our guests had a great time, everyone felt taken care of and the tables looked gorgeous. Given her lovely demeanour, modern design sensibility, calm organisational style and attention to detail, Olivia was definitely our secret weapon in making a spectacular event appear effortless. Thank you!”
This 180 guest wedding was simply stunning. All corners of the globe were represented on this day which took place in Bath. A blessing was held at St Michael’s Without and the reception at the majestic Guildhall only a short stroll down the road. Classic styling to compliment the surroundings was the name of the game for this Anglo-American couple.
“Olivia is nothing short of amazing! Our wedding would not have been the magical day it was without Olivia and her tireless efforts. It is difficult to express in words how perfect every detail was from start to finish, she went well beyond her duties in making every detail special. One of the first things Olivia told me when we met was how much she loves what she does and I will say it shows in every second she spent on planning my wedding. She manages all areas with such grace and joy and kept me from stressing multiple times about small details that came up during the planning. The suppliers she recommended were truly fantastic and her negotiation skills are second to none and by far outweighed her modest fee which I would say it the best investment in my wedding and I am now happy to call her a friend, knowing that whoever’s wedding she is a part of will be magical. You will regret not booking her!”

"Thank you so much for all your hard work yesterday! To say you exceeded our expectations is an understatement. The run up to the wedding was so hectic and quite stressful and it was very difficult for me to actually stop doing things at the house on Friday night and pass things over to someone else but everything you did was amazing and I was so pleased with how it all looked. We had the most incredible day and if we hadn't had an on the day planner the day wouldn't have been as enjoyable for me or my family as we would have had so much more to do and worry about. You were a pleasure to have there on the day and everything I asked you to do you just got on with and never looked flustered. Michael, our lovely photographer, told us how amazing he thought you were too. The best he's worked with apparently!"
Lisa and Andy's special day was a joy to be a part of. Held at the intimate venue, No.4 Clifton Village, this wedding was so sophisticated and charming.
"Olivia played a huge role in our Big Day and ensured that everything went perfectly and just how we wanted it! She was involved right from the beginning of the planning stage which meant we could focus on imagining what day we wanted whilst Olivia made it happen: sourcing and liaising with suppliers, managing our budget and always keeping us up to date with everything. And on the day itself Olivia was on hand to make sure everything was just right and exactly as we dreamt: we could relax, really enjoy ourselves and have the day of our lives to remember! We would recommend Olivia to anyone with a big event coming up - she is amazing!"
Marianne and David got married at St Arilda's Church in Oldbury-on-Severn and held their reception in a marquee in the field opposite! The day was filled with so much love and laughter. It was a real joy to help them achieve their dream day.
"Olivia, there are no words to do justice for how amazing you were at our wedding!! Thank you for EVERYTHING!! Xxxxx"
