SUSANNA RICHARDSON HAS EVERYTHING ORGANISED. . .


Susanna is a wedding and event planner who has been responsible for some of the most talked about parties both here and abroad. A former city girl, she's swapped her heels for the Cotswolds and we're delighted that she will be sharing her musings with us each month.


Wedding of the year! What a wedding to finish on! People often ask me if working on high profile weddings is demanding, to which I answer that just about every wedding is demanding. Sometimes the smaller ones can be even harder than the mega craziness of celeb-land.


Working abroad is always a big challenge too, not just the logistics, but dealing with different cultures and work ethics. It’s so draining at times and I always feel quite on edge waiting for something to go wrong 1000 miles away from home.


It’s a highly emotive environment and I think that often brings out the worst in people, so an otherwise chilled bride can be made stir crazy by over demanding guests and a million dress fittings. I think we all have that tipping point.


I always really feel for brides in the public eye because their dress choice is the subject of many a comment board. Keyboard warriors circle in their masses ready to slate the cut, the colour, style and every teeny detail in-between. It’s kind of scary going for bridal fittings with someone who has to try and second guess every single critique which will come her way. It


pretty much kills those over excited butterflies which flutter in our tummies at the sight of all that gorgeous tulle.


It seems such a shame that it’s become so normal to drag people down and be mean. As I always say to my brides, “Real queens fix each other’s crowns”. It’s why I sometimes try and take a social media break, it doesn’t generally last very long because I’m nosey and have serious “fomo” but the intentions are usually good.


It reminds me of the time that we made the move to our cute little country retreat. There was no phone or TV signal in the barn we chose. It was utterly blissful, well for about 24 hours and then we declared the need for a booster to get back the phone, but we actually started to enjoy the bliss of no normal TV. The fact that we were happier watching TV on demand, no adverts and mostly not watching the news had this huge positive impact on our lives. I find that when I’m stuck in a hotel and get subjected to morning TV in the background I usually


leave the room with less of a spring in my step than when I arrived. Maybe we all need a dose of that world detox and to shut ourselves away in cow sheds in a field.
