Love Lydia Weddings & Events’ clients have always been their number one priority and the ethos of the business is that each clients’ expectations are always surpassed, whilst each wedding or event is planned impeccably, professionally, and seamlessly.

Lydia and her team have actively planned and coordinated some exceptional weddings and events throughout the year, including some intimate, romantically styled ones, several ‘big fat’ Greek Weddings and some multi-cultural ones. Their corporate clients were not left out either, with some rather notable events arranged for them.

‘Love Lydia Weddings & Events’ were delighted also to be featured recently in the American blog ‘MOD Wedding’ when one of their Summer Weddings was highlighted for real British wedding inspiration, and also when asked to feature in the Luxury International Magazine, ‘The Art of Luxury’, alongside many luxury brands - and the likes of David Gandy!

‘Love Lydia’s passion, expertise and love for our industry are conducive in elevating to and positioning this business in a prominent position for clients seeking luxury, sophistication and signature style.

Established in 2004 RandFWeddings or Rocks and Frocks Wedding Planning as it was back then has seen Vanessa take her wealth of project management and event experience to become one of the highest regarded and respected Wedding Planners in the UK and internationally.

Based on the Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire border, amongst many accolades Vanessa is a Double 4CWA award winning wedding planner, a wedding awards judge for the National Celebrant Awards and BBC Wedding Expert and a staff writer for the Magpie Wedding blog. Vanessa specialises in blank canvas luxury venue, tipi and marquee style weddings and has a wealth of experience in the additional event production that these more complex weddings require.

Vanessa says 'Equally at home planning luxury venue weddings, in 2017 I was thrilled to win the award for ‘Wedding Planner & Production’  and took the award for Wedding Planner of the year for a second time at the 2018 prestigious 4CWA wedding awards.

With my planning and management services, I treat each wedding and event as if it is my own, with meticulous attention to detail whilst working in a calm, professional manner to create exceptional and beautiful fun & relaxed weddings.

I have a small and passionate team and we simply adore what we do and our passion for creating exceptional weddings knows no bounds!  We work across the UK and are a key choice for couples abroad looking to marry in the UK with clients from America and Germany through to Australia and Vietnam.

We can offer as much or as little support as you require for your wedding.  We can plan your wedding in its entirety, take over the management in the last 12 weeks or simply take over from you in the final two weeks before your wedding and manage the day itself, always with a helping hand along the way.

We work with you to create a fabulous, stress-free wedding - one for you and all of your guests to cherish and remember'.



Since its inception in 2016, La Fête has built an impressive portfolio of high-end weddings, exclusive events and boundary-pushing photoshoots.

La Fête operates internationally, with particularly in-depth knowledge of the British, French, Spanish, Italian and Moroccan markets. Charlotte has planned everything from intimate Tuscan weddings to luxurious birthday parties in London ballrooms, making sure that every single detail is tailored to the needs and tastes of each individual.

As well as working closely with private clients, La Fête consults for corporate clients, including Glamour Magazine, particularly for the yearly organisation of the highly-anticipated Glamour Beauty Festival, and The BARDOU Foundation, with whom Charlotte directly works on events celebrating International Day of the Girl and International Women’s Day.

La Fête continues to be regularly featured in a wide selection of national bridal magazines, and founder and creative director, Charlotte Ricard-Quesada, has become a go-to source for high-profile wedding commentaries, as seen in Daily Express Online for Pippa Middleton’s wedding. Charlotte also provides her input to online publications such as Yahoo! News, Evening Standard Online and Stylist, and has been featured as one of London’s top wedding planners by Zank You. Charlotte was also personally featured on Rock My Wedding, giving insight into the process of her bespoke bridal gowns.

Charlotte’s whimsical yet luxurious style is unique, particularly in its attention to detail, use of colour and melding of traditional aesthetics with quirky elements. That is why La Fête regularly spearheads its own styled shoots, bringing together the best in the business and creating original images and films. La Fête’s photoshoots have appeared online on Wedding Chicks and in print in Brides Magazine UK and most recently, as two separate spreads in the Wedding issue of Vogue Japan.

At La Fête, we offer once in a lifetime experiences, looking at each event as the beginning of a long-lasting relationship with every single one of our clients.
