Excellent wedding planner

We were passed onto Helsbells by a colleague at work who had used Helen as a venue finder and were delighted. We did the same initially and Helen came to see us at home and quickly understood what we were looking for. She was very proactive, sent us a detailed shortlist and we chose Swinton Park, Masham which was far superior to anything we had considered and was also within our budget. Once this was booked, we met with Helen again and she explained what other services she could offer. We decided to use her as our wedding planner on the day and she was terrific - taking all the pressure off both bride and groom. She organised everyone behind the scenes and ensured the day was a complete success. We cannot thank her enough. Helen provides excellent service and very good value. Use Helsbells and your expectations will be exceeded. Helen knows all the details to think about and in what sequence. Our 60 guests all thought it was a superb day and Helen played a big part in making it a success.

The best value-for-money service at our wedding

We hired Helen to coordinate things on our wedding day. We got married in a theatre and there wasn’t one person to oversee the whole running of the day. We hoped Helen would be able to manage the catering staff, venue staff and oversee the turning round of the room. As we only had access on the morning of the wedding, Helen was also going to oversee the setup and decoration of the venue. She did all of this beyond our expectation! The venue looked stunning. She was absolutely fantastic! Helen was always available at the end of the phone before and after the wedding for advice. She is highly organised and professional. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone thinking of hiring someone to help things run smoothly. With Helen in charge we felt confident and relaxed on our wedding day and enjoyed every minute.

Thanks so much for your venue search for us and your willingness to answer all of our questions! We found your service very valuable, obliging and cost effective. Without it, we didn't know where to start!

The best money we spent on our wedding

I was unsure at first whether we needed a wedding planner, and worried it was an unnecessary extravagance. We didn’t want a huge or expensive wedding, but we wanted to enjoy the process of planning the day and have something which was really special to us. We both appreciated that we’re not wedding planners and Hel’s Bells had the ‘insider knowledge’ which could help us plan, save and create a brilliant day.

From our first meeting and choosing the planning elements we wanted, Hel’s Bells delivered more than we could have imagined. Helen was friendly, supportive, professional and knowledgeable. We didn't have the time or experience to make our wedding feel really special, find the best venue for us, or make the day run to time and Hel’s Bells ensured we got what we wanted.

Helen's creative ideas, advice and support were so valuable to us in planning our wedding. It was great to have an impartial and objective view on things and Helen took all the stress out of our big day, so all we had to do was enjoy ourselves, which we did! Everything was so professionally executed and we would thoroughly recommend Hel's Bells to every couple thinking about getting married! The money we spent with Hel's Bells was the best money we spent on the wedding because it made our day the way we wanted it to be...really special!

We couldn't have done it without Hel's Bells!

Our wedding day was unique in many different ways. We did not have the benefit of a hotel wedding where a lot of the planning and preparation was taken care of by an ‘in house’ team of hospitality staff. As numerous suppliers were involved in the wedding day, it became clear that we would need extra support to ensure the day ran as smoothly as possible.

From the very first meeting with Helen, it was evident that Helen was incredibly passionate and professional about the work she was going to undertake on our behalf. We both instantly knew we could trust Helen to make our day truly memorable and still believe that we could not have done it without her.

It was so reassuring to have Helen making sure the day flowed, and become a point of contact for the various suppliers. As Helen’s clients, we found her to be incredibly friendly, dedicated and an accomplished professional who maintained the highest possible standards. Several suppliers who work in the ‘wedding industry’ commented on how organised Helen was and truly supportive of us both.

Many guests passed comment on how hard Helen worked providing umbrellas, sewing 2 dresses including the bride’s dress, attending the church service and being our MC! Throughout the day, my wife felt she could only speak to Helen when the emotion of the wedding was too much. This shows just how valued her presence was throughout the day.

We have no hesitation in recommending Helen to other couples thinking of using her bespoke services for their big day. It was incredibly reassuring to know that Helen was there allowing myself and my wife to relax and enjoy our day. Helen, we would like to sincerely thank you for making our wedding the best day of our lives!

Every Bride Needs A Helen!

What a dream it was to work with a professional like Helen as our wedding planner. She is clearly passionate about what she does and it is truly reflected in her work. From the onset Helen was on hand to offer invaluable advice and nothing was ever too much trouble. Her insight, creativity, vision and resourcefulness turned an otherwise stressful 'job' into an enjoyable experience and memorable occasion. Helen has a friendly and relaxed approach and was a big hit with our suppliers and guests alike. The peace of mind that she gave me, on a very busy, important day, was priceless. It meant that the night before, I could relax and start to enjoy the run-up to the most important day of my life! Our wedding was a resounding success and we were able to enjoy every aspect of our big day knowing that Helen was on hand to ensure the smooth running of the event. Hel’s Bells exceeded all of our expectations and we would highly recommend their services to anyone. In fact it was the best value money that we spent in our whole budget!

Hel's Bells made our day!

Hel's Bells - where would I have been without you? Certainly not sane, that's for sure! Hel's Bells were fab from start to finish - I really felt they understood what we wanted right from the the first meeting, which was a relief as I was nervous of ending up with someone else's day. We had the most fantastic day, everything ran to plan and our venue looked out of this world - no mean feat as we hadn't got a huge budget. Hel's Bells kept us right on track and even saved us money in some areas which meant we could have those little extras we had decided against. Looking back I know that I wouldn't have enjoyed our special day so much if we hadn't had the help and support of Hel's Bells, they helped make our day perfect, took away most of the stress, hassle and running around. Their help with some of our suppliers was invaluable - their experience and professionalism really showed through. It's a pity I married the man of my dreams as until my children grow up I won't get the chance to work with Hel's Bells again, though I do recommend them to anyone I know who is thinking of getting married so I really look forward to seeing them again soon. Thank you for making our special day so wonderful.

Hel's Bells are the best!!!

I cannot praise Hel's Bells enough. They were absolutely fantastic, offering a highly professional yet very warm and friendly service. I was originally wary about using a wedding planner. I was a bride on a budget and although I could see the benefits of using one I felt that I wouldn't be able to afford it. I couldn't have been more wrong. By using Hel's Bells not only did I save money but I had the wedding I always dreamt of. They had several wedding packages to choose from ranging from simply giving recommendations on suppliers to organising the entire day from start to finish. I chose the full package and any concerns about not having full control or ending up with the wedding that I hadn’t always pictured were quashed immediately. I really felt that they totally understood what I wanted and I can say that they most definitely delivered. They not only took the hassle and stress away from me by organising everything but it meant that when it came to the actual day, I could just concentrate on being a princess!!! Let’s face it, that’s what all brides want. Ten out of ten. I now find myself recommending Hel’s Bells to anyone who has announced their engagement. I really believe the day wouldn’t have been the fairytale I always envisaged without them. Thank you Hel’s Bells!!!
