About Us


ABOUT US

Fine Luxury Wedding Designer & Planner.

 

As sisters we share a strong bond and a vision that embodies our different personalities, passions and experiences. We each dreamt of one day creating our own business that would enable us to channel our diverse skills into something beautiful.

 

It is SO important to be in love with what you do! We are passionate and driven planners and stylists.

 

Be true to who you are.

 

YOUR WEDDING PLANNER SHOULD OFFER YOU MORE THAN SIMPLY BEING EFFICIENT AND WELL ORGANISED.

 

IT IS NOT ABOUT FOLLOWING TRENDS OR EVEN CREATING NEW TRENDS FOR OTHERS TO FOLLOW.

 

YOUR INDIVIDUAL STORY AND PERSONALITY AS A COUPLE NEEDS TO BE INFUSED INTO YOUR WEDDING DAY; CREATING SOMETHING BREATHTAKING, MEANINGFUL, AUTHENTIC, SIMPLE, NATURAL AND UNFORCED.

 

ON YOUR WEDDING DAY YOU WANT TO FEEL CONFIDENT, COMFORTABLE AND AT HOME IN YOUR SURROUNDINGS. YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN MIMICKING OTHERS. YOUR VISION IS TO CREATE SOMETHING ORIGINAL.

Artistry. Design.

 

Unique, trusted and passionate suppliers are the foundation of your wedding. Our network of suppliers and artists will mean that you will have only the very best people working alongside us to bring your vision to life.

Romance.

 

Weddings should be romantic as opposed to stressful; which all too often is the case. You should be able to enjoy every little moment of and leading up to your wedding.

The feel of the table linens, the sound of the music, the taste of the food, the smell of fresh flowers, the moments...both of you should be able to treasure all of these things and more.

You don't need to worry about the details.  

That is what we do.

Elegance over opulence.

 

There is something incredibly beautiful in simplicity; all the little details that complement each other and come together to create something truly spectacular and luxurious.

It is this ethos that will underpin our design concept for your wedding. 

 

 

We've been where you are and know how you feel!

 

One half of us is married (that's Katie!)

KATIE - I was so INCREDIBLY EXCITED ABOUT MARRYING MY husband TOM, BUT WHEN IT came TO THE WEDDING DAY ITSELF SO MANY PEOPLE were TELLING US WHAT TO DO, WHAT NOT TO DO, WHERE TO HAVE THE WEDDING, WHERE NOT TO, WHAT COLOUR SCHEME TO FOLLOW, WHICH SUPPLIERS TO USE, WHAT TIME OF YEAR TO DO IT...NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT I had SO MANY IDEAS OF MY OWN!

 

As a wedding planner with my experiences and my own vision I knew how to drown out that noise and focus on what I needed to do!
 

I ALSO HAD my talented stylist & creative counterpart Nancy! TO SUPPORT ME AND I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW REASSURING THAT FELT.

 

. . .

 

IT'S OUR JOB TO SUPPORT YOU SO THAT YOU CAN BE TRUE TO WHO YOU ARE AS A COUPLE DESPITE ALL THE PRESSURES IN THE PLANNING PROCESS.

 

But what is different for you is that there are two of us to support you.

OUR STORY

Isn't it so hard to know what to do when you're growing up?

 

One of the lovely facts about our company is that it was a natural process for us both! Our paths in life were leading towards each other to create Lily & Sage.

When I picture my ideal day, I imagine myself waking up next to my husband Tom in our light airy bedroom; the wooden flooring and the big white bed filled with fresh, clean linens are illuminated by the sunlight shining in through the large sash windows. I'm confident, productive and full of energy and anticipation for another day ahead working alongside my beautiful sister and best friend Nancy.

 

When I graduated from The University of Leeds in 2010, I moved down to London for work. I absolutely loved the vibrant atmosphere of the city; full of potential, ambition and culture.

 

I was working in Human resources for a fantastic digital marketing company with some absolutely lovely people, but i just kept on thinking to myself "is this my future? is this where I want to be in ten years time?"

 

Have you ever felt like that?

 

Growing up Nancy and I had always been such close sisters. We HAVE always HAD the same vision for style and the beautiful things in life, and something just felt right about bringing our experiences together to do something that had a purpose for us AND OTHERS.

 

We realised that we absolutely complemented each other as sisters; having our own unique strengths that we could each bring to the table. With my business experience, Nancy's creative mind and the love and support of our friends and family around us, we felt absolutely certain that we could build a successful business that we loved.

 

And so, Lily & Sage was born.

 

Nancy.

After graduating from De Montfort University with a degree in Contour Fashion, I felt unsure about entering a large commercial design team.

 

As a designer I felt the need to create and I noticed that a lot of brands replicate what they have done before, what sell, what they are expected to produce. my integrity as a creative was  not something I was prepared to sacrifice.

 

I wanted to work in an artistic fuelled environment, but I was unsure about where. I began to explore art conservation and restoration. I loved immersing myself in the history and beauty of the objects that I was working with and the places that I was working in, But I felt that I wasn’t giving anything to the world by doing this - I was looking to the past when I wanted to be a part of the future! I needed to be a part of something that utilised my unique skills and experience in the design industry.

 

When Katie and I decided to begin building Lily & Sage together I felt that it was the perfect opportunity for me to truly do what I had always dreamed of doing. i have always been passionate about building a visual story, and felt that I would really be able to do this by working with couples to find and develop their style. 

 

The thought of doing this with my sister and closest ally was incredible. I can’t think of anyone else I would rather work, create and inspire alongside!

Our name.

Finding a name that reflects you can actually be quite difficult. In fact, it was even harder because there were two of us. We spent months bouncing ideas off one another, and even asking family and friends for ideas.

It was then that we realised we wanted something with a story behind it, something meaningful to us. Our childhood cat Lily came to mind. Memories of her sunbathing amongst the herb garden in our family home. 

Although sadly Lily is now in cat heaven, we now have our two adorable company mascots Harry & Wolsey. There's not a day that goes by without them doing something silly to make us laugh, they truly are a dynamic duo...just like us really!

Come and meet them at the Lily & Sage Studio!

(Be prepared for kisses and cuddles)!
