About Me

Hi, I’m Alison and welcome to my UK Wedding Blog, to begin our journey together I shall share a little bit about me.

I am crazy about love & crazy about Weddings and feed my zany marriage addiction by sharing your love stories.

My Company is Plans and Presents and until  a few years ago I was Wedding and Event Consultant but now I now run this Wedding Blog full time.

I have been married to my wonderful IT Geek husband Neill for 17 years, and we have two amazing kids who inspire me to succeed, and to grow as a person, and as a Businesswoman.

I have a huge heart and am fiercely loyal and expect the same from others.

I have lots of patience and have been called a good listener and I do have the knack of being a wee bit of a chatterbox.

I love chocolate and jelly babies ( perhaps a little too much), I love walks in the countryside and feeling at one with nature and I love travel and exploring and wish I could do a little bit more.

I am a wee bit obsessed with property websites and if I came into money would own a string of wedding venues so I could share the love even more….


From a Business point of view and from the planning of my own Wedding, I unleashed a passion for planning, and I believe I have a keen eye for detail and a natural flair for organisation.

Over the years I planned a fair few events, and the smile you got when someone is so happy, not only because their event is going well, but because they are pleased with your work, is priceless.

I loved bringing my own Special Day together, and it gave me great joy to work with people to bring together an event that is all about them, their personalities and their style.

At the end of 2013/ early 2014 the Business evolved and due to some physical constraints the decision was made that my focus should be full time on the Blog.

This Blog features my thoughts, my creative ideas, some Inspirational Real Weddings and Events and information about fabulous new Suppliers and Venues to comprehensively cover areas that will engage interest and provide great information and advice.

Whether you are a Supplier, Photographer or a couple and you want your submit your Wedding or your shoot, or to discuss a Wedding Business feature then please visit my Submissions page.


My Twitter pseudonym is Mrs P and P and I’m known as the lady that loves to help and on Facebook you can find me as Plans and Presents. and on Instagram too.

I have also been a Judge at the 2013 and 2014 Wedding Ideas Awards, and a Judge in the 2014 Bridal Buyer Awards.

I also regularly contribute to Wedding Industry publications such as Wedding Ideas as well as blog advice features.

I held No.1 in the UK Wedding Tweeter List for over 4 years.
