“Britain's most sought-after wedding planner and an authority on multimillion-dollar weddings”

(TIME Magazine)

Sarah Haywood is internationally acknowledged as one of the world’s premier wedding planners and designers; sought by celebrities, leading public figures, and nobility. She is the UK’s top-selling Bridal author, making her ‘Wedding Bible’ an indispensable source for couples since its publication in 2006. She was established as the go-to International commentator for the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton; Sarah was CNN’s expert on the day of the wedding, and appeared on every continent on major television networks in the days preceding the royal nuptials (including BBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, Channel 9 Australia, and NHK Japan).

Cited as “the ultimate insider” by The Sunday Times, “Britain's most sought-after wedding planner and an authority on multimillion-dollar weddings” by TIME magazine, “one of the most highly-rated celebrity wedding planners in the world” by Paris Match, she was named ‘Business Icon of the Year’ at the 2010 Icon Awards at the House of Commons, and nicknamed the ‘Wedding Doctor’ by the UK and international press: Sarah Haywood is the ultimate wedding expert.

Her core company Sarah Haywood Design is a luxury wedding design and coordination consultancy. She works alongside leading couturiers, top florists, venues, Michelin star chefs, cake bakers (to royalty and the stars), award-winning stylists, make-up artists and photographers. One of the few companies offering a truly bespoke service from scratch, each wedding is personally designed, planned and managed by Sarah.  

Sarah planned her first wedding over a decade ago whilst still working as a broadcast journalist for ITV. When she herself married, she wondered why there existed no authoritative printed resource for preparing for the Big Day: in response, she wrote the Wedding Bible. An overnight success, brides found it indispensible and, according to ITV presenter Kate Garraway, “All you need to get married is a groom, a dress, and the Wedding Bible.”


The Diamond Experience

With her Diamond Experience Sarah has gained access for clients to her diamantaire in the Diamant Beurs in Antwerp - usually only accessible to the diamond trade. Sarah’s clients are offered certificated, top-grade and ethically sourced diamonds: including uncut and flawless gems. They are then introduced to one of Europe’s leading jewellery designers to create a bespoke setting. This service offers a rare opportunity for a couple to be involved in the entire process from selection and polishing through to the design of their jewellery. Without a retailer in the middle, this service is both exclusive and competitively priced and can be turned around in 21 days. The Diamond Experience is available upon request with a minimum budget of £20,000/ $30,000.


Wedding Planning Apps

The first wedding coordinator in the world to release apps, the current suite includes Wedding Planning apps and the Bow Tie Tutor for iPhone. The latter is the first of Sarah’s fun but essential apps for the Big Day and features the Earl of March’s Butler offering video tutorials on tying a bow tie.  The Ultimate Wedding App for BlackBerry, Android, Nokia, and iPhone was launched in September 2011. Now every bride and groom can have at their fingertips the luxury of this world-class professional to help them plan their perfect day.



Sarah is regularly quoted and featured in the UK and international press. Recent television and radio appearances include: CNN, ABC, BBC, NBC, AP, Sky News, ITV, Channel 5 News, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Five Live and Living. Internationally, Sarah has appeared on television and radio in Europe, Australasia and the Americas.
