Catherine and Clare of Will&Jac can assist you in every aspect of planning a fabulous wedding day. From helping you choose your wedding venue to project managing your entire day, they bring to you their experience in creating the perfect day. To know that every detail is taken care of will give you the peace of mind to enjoy your day. We asked Catherine and Clare of Will&Jac five questions in five minutes:
What is the most important piece of advice you can give to engaged couples?
To enjoy the ride! The final destination is certainly important but as the day goes so quickly, you must ensure that the during the months that lead up to your all-important celebration you need to stop, breathe and ultimately be surrounded by suppliers who are dedicated to you, provide peace of mind and allow you to immerse yourself and make decisions in a thoughtful manner.
Our biggest piece of advice would be to make sure that your Wedding budget is discussed prior to confirming any details towards your Day. There is no need to be stretched financially – your final figure needs to sit comfortably and practically with all parties – your Wedding is one day, you have the rest of your married life ahead of you for bigger dreams.
There is no right or wrong for a Wedding Day, it just needs to be reflective of ‘you’ as a couple!
Tell us about a hidden talent you have?
Clare – Can whistle so loud it stops traffic!
Catherine – Studied Classical Voice therefore at any given moment you can hear her pop out a little tune!
As a vendor, what excites you about the wedding day?
The all-important moments where our couple says ‘I Do’. While a lot of thought goes into the Reception with so many added elements making the big party fulfil your every wish, it’s those more reserved and special details in your Ceremony service that make it all official and often make for the biggest tear jerkers for family and friends… and us! (Side note, don’t make your Ceremony too short! 20 minutes is the perfect length.)
What are you known for?
will&jac was created to allow couple’s an enjoyable process towards their Wedding Day. We met working at a Reception venue and saw too many last minute details – which back then were out of our control – overshadow the celebration that comes with this special Day.
will&jac offer full and partial planning services however we ultimately thrive on the opportunity to delve into Private Property celebrations – being part of every exciting step towards seeing the big picture come together on the days towards your Wedding Day, is our biggest thrill.
If you could choose a song to play for the rest of your life what would it be?
Clare – “Faith” by George Michael.
Catherine – “Clap Your Hands” by Sia.
