Adventurous. Bold. Personality-packed.


Celebrations that follow only one rule ... yours!

I help London's authentic city lovers plan their bold, rule-book free intimate, and micro wedding day.

For energetic couples, looking to infuse their own personal traditions with crowd-pleasing touches.

Together, let’s plan your version of the perfect day by breaking the rules, but keeping a nod to the traditions you adore! If you are looking for a wedding and party planner in Croydon, London and surroundings... well you just found her!


Imagining a large,

but unique wedding day that oozes your love story?

Hungry for a small,

but mighty wedding day that exudes every essence of your personality?

Allow me to dive straight in and master the tricky stuff using my flexible, refreshed, all-inclusive approach to wedding planning in London.

Your wedding is a momentous day. There’s a raw magic that comes with declaring your love to each other in front of your friends and family. If you’re looking for the perfect moment to express the heart and spirit of yourselves as individuals, and as a couple - this is your golden ticket!


As well as crafting a vibrant, joyful and memorable celebration for you, I embrace every couple's uniqueness - I implore you to think beyond the scope of classic traditions and do things your way.

I’m Akilah, and I wish I could get married again and again and again (to my current husband, of course!).

Whilst organising my own big day in London, I became fascinated with every inch of the behind-the-scenes magic that came with wedding planning.


Taking on new ventures is my thing - a self-confessed dabbler, you could say!


So, it was a natural step for me to dive into the deep end and become a professional qualified intimate wedding planner. 

Now, I pour every ounce of my energy into my craft - combining my web of innovative ideas and my personal experiences of wedding planning, to create a day that makes you say “YES!” this feels authentically us!

I help plan unique, passionate, and intimate weddings and celebrations in Surrey, Croydon, and London, that make every couple feel completely at home - and it would be my pleasure to help you create the joy-filled wedding day you deserve.
