The 100 Best Wedding Planners in the World: 2018

Introduction

When you have worked in the wedding industry as long as I have you know two things, firstly, that weddings can be terribly hard to organise (and this can detract from fully enjoying the day). Secondly, wedding planners are heroes. If you are going to get married, do yourself a favour and use a planner. Without any doubt they will save you time, money and headache.

I'm Nicholas Purcell, "one of the the world's best wedding photographers" who has worked with some of the world's best and most talented wedding planners. 

You may be familiar with my annual Best Wedding Photographers list and similarly this Best Wedding Planner list is intended to honour and recognise these planners who devote their artistry and organisational talents to other people's weddings. It's not meant to be scientific in any way nor could it be.

The starting point in compiling this list was reaching out to a handful of wedding planners I respect and asking them to anonymously nominate others. Then I spent a lot of time looking at their work and a thousand other portfolios I've come across. I prefer to have personally worked with the planner before including them but sometimes it wasn't possible and when people's names keep coming up again and again they can't be ignored.

Some points to keep in mind. Obviously there are hundreds more excellent planners than are just on this list. It could easily have been a 1000 Best. Also, please keep in mind that almost all planners will work in regions or globally so don't restrict your search to only those planners located where you want to get married. 

This list will be revised annually and I'm also going to bring you country based lists eg 100 Best Wedding Planners in Italy, so subscribe right so you don't miss out and if you are a planner and would like to be considered for the 2019 list please email me and say hello.

Photos, where they appear, have been supplied by the wedding planner. Now, on to the list...
