Emily L.'s review on Sep 30, 2020

I have always had such a great experience working with Navy Tux Events, me and my fiancé are getting married in Tolouse in May 2021 and Stacey has been amazing throughout the entire process and have thoroughly enjoyed all of her inputs, ideas and support with suppliers. I have also previously dealt with Navy Tux Events on work events such as Race Days & Networking meetings. I would highly recommend Navy Tux Events for any future events you may be planning towards and can’t wait to continue to work with her moving forwards. Emily Lewis x

Meet Stacey

I'm Stacey: born in Zimbabwe, adopted Scouser, eldest of 5 siblings that has been in (and is in love with) the events industry for 13 years. I'm a straightforward, easygoing wedding & event planner that specialises in creating beautifully authentic occasions in the UK & abroad. It's easy to get lost in the chaos of planning, whether in company objectives or family politics, but my goal always remains the same: to make sure that every part of the event is authentically you. Because of this, I work easily with different types of people on a daily basis: from global brands such as Paul Smith, Epson & Coca Cola to a lovely couple getting married in a French Chateau with only 26 of their closest family & friends (now happening in 2022!). The most important thing to me is having authentic and transparent communication with my clients so that we achieve exactly what we set out to do in the most stress-free way possible. My one piece of advice is to be a little bit selfish because you'll quickly find that excess opinions can lead you astray from what really means the most to you as a couple. Our catch ups will be online and in-person (when permitted) and will usually involve wine (or caffeine if you prefer) depending on what kind of day/week you've had!

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
Dependent on each project however this will always be transparent, clearly outlined and agreed on to avoid any conflict.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
I always prefer to start with a phone call or face-to-face meeting where possible so that we can understand the outline of what you need and how I can help. After that, I will send you a breakdown of what we discussed, costs & how we'll work before we start planning!
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
Whilst I have a degree in Event Management, nothing beats 13 years of experience working in every single part of the event process! I'm working with couples in the UK who are navigating their weddings around Covid rules for their UK & destination weddings which requires a lot of flexibility, calmness and honest conversations about Plan A, B, C and beyond!
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Make sure that you get that immediate good feeling from any planner you're considering because this is going to be a journey. Sometimes it's not a match and that's ok, but you want someone that you feel understands you from the get go and is going to be just as invested as you are in making this day happen the way you see it in your mind.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
A plan can start from nothing- my job is to help you figure out how to turn it into something! It helps if you have an idea in mind of some of the following: how you see your day panning out, home or away, church or blessing, 2 venues or all-in-one, the overall feel, how many people do you see when you look around and how much can you spend at max.
What are some good examples of past customers?
I'm more than happy to share my background which includes corporates, weddings & private parties.
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
Every project is different- some are planned a year in advance (a recent 50th Birthday celebration) and most in only a few weeks/ months! I'm currently working on 2021/2022/2023 weddings and navigating my couples around Covid restrictions which has meant date changes but the big day remains something to look forward to and I make the process as easy as possible.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I dropped out of my Journalism course and decided to pursue a career in events, starting with a placement at a local radio station. From then on I worked for free at every corporate, charity & private event I could to get experience. Once I landed a high profile client and delivered a massively successful event that raised over £1.3m for charity, I couldn't give up the buzz (chaos) of planning! 13 years later and I've evolved as a planner but carried that experience which is ever-changing for the benefit of my clients.
