The Whitewed Directory is the brainchild of Natalie Lovett of Love to Plan Ltd, a highly qualified and experienced Wedding Planner and Wedding Event Organiser based in Wiltshire.
“As a Wedding Planner, I know how to assess wedding suppliers on behalf of my clients, making sure that they offer value for money and that their services meet my clients' expectations.
I always vet suppliers before presenting them to the bride and groom and I strongly believe in only selecting those who are honest, professional and who promote great value for money and excellent service.
The Whitewed Directory is a natural extension of my supplier vetting and selection skills, and it has become an award-winning, proven platform that gives quality wedding suppliers access to engaged couples, an opportunity to develop and grow, and be part of an enviable community...and it gives engaged couples a gorgeous resource and wedding planning tool, and reassurance in their planning journey - what's not to love?!”
Whitewed is THE ultimate wedding directory of approved wedding suppliers in and around the South West. Every company we recommend has been vetted, approved and accredited, with each agreeing to abide by our Code of Practice. We KNOW that they'll deliver their products and services to meet and exceed your expectations. They care about your big day as much as you do.
They're all honest, trustworthy and committed, and with that comes credibility – which in turn is what Whitewed is all about.
Weddings are emotional – and expensive! It's vital that you book only the most reliable and professional businesses. My team and I are always looking for ways to make your wedding planning journey enjoyable and as stress-free as possible, and we hope that our award-winning wedding directory gives you the confidence and peace of mind that you need when making your booking selections.

The Whitewed Directory Awards: Business of the Year 2018 Winners: The DeciBelles
Says Donna-Kate & Jo of The DeciBelles: "We have been very lucky and humbled to win a few awards for the way we perform, but the Whitewed one feels extra special.
As musicians we haven’t come from a business background therefore winning the Whitewed 'Business of the Year' gave us affirmation for all the work that goes on ‘behind the scenes’. It’s nice knowing we are doing both aspects right! We were very honoured to be up against such a strong category and ultimately flattered to win! It stands very proud on our sideboards! Thank you Whitewed!.”
The Whitewed Directory Awards: Start-Up Business of the Year 2018: Fluffy Puffin
Says Chris of Fluffy Puffin: “A very close friend once told me that we are all to quick to give ourselves a hard time, dwell on mistakes and question or abilities... but it's really important and healthy to recognise our efforts and achievements, and enjoy the successes and accomplishments.... so this is me giving myself, my family, and my friends who have helped to make this dream a reality, a massive pat on the back! Good work team Fluffy Puffin..”
The Whitewed Directory Awards: Most Inspiring Business Person of the Year 2018: Hannah Culley's Cakes
Says Hannah: "It really meant a lot to me to win most inspiring business person of the year, I was nominated in two categories and this was the one that meant the most. I started my business when I was a teenager amongst friends that had no interest in business, so at time I felt very alone! It’s incredible that I was recognised & awarded for my hard work & dedication, the amount of love I had when I won was astounding. It really makes all the hard work so worth it!”
We're delighted to announce that The Whitewed Directory, has been shortlisted for the 2018 NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards in the Small Business Entrepreneur of the Year award! We beat off tough competition in order to make the regional shortlist, with a record number of businesses entering the awards nationally across the wide range of categories.
Natalie Lovett, director of The Whitewed Directory, said “I’m absolutely delighted to be shortlisted for the second year running. We’ve had a fantastic year so far, with the launch of our new (and award winning) website, our recent expansion across the M4 corridor, and the launch of 2018 The Whitewed Directory Awards, following the huge success of its debut last year.”
I can honestly say that it was one of my wisest business moves to join the wonderful Whitewed team. Natalie works very hard at her business to make sure that our businesses are a success.
In the short time I have been part of the Whitewed family my business has gone from strength to strength. The wedding shows are organised so well ensuring a variety of brides and venues. Fantastic work Natalie and your lovely team. Thank you.
Being part of the Whitewed team has really boosted my Photographic business. Natalie has worked hard to quickly built the Directory into a well respected directory of professional suppliers and a first stop for those planning their Wedding Day.
Being a part of the Whitewed Directory is absolutely fantastic. Not only are there some fantastic suppliers here but some great friends too.The Whitewed Directory has helped me out with my business so much, and I am so glad to be a part of it.
There are lots of wedding directories out there so I was sceptical about joining another but I am so glad I did. The Whitewed Directory is the only one that cares enough about couples to vet their members. I feel really reassured when I work at a wedding with Whitewed suppliers as I know that the day will run smoothly. It has been great to get to know my colleagues as friends at the sociable networking events and I know I can trust them to do a great job too. Thanks Natalie.
An absolute must for any local bride! With their genuine passion, expert knowledge and access to the creme de la creme of local wedding suppliers, Natalie and her lovely team at Whitewed are amazing! I would highly recommend the website and their fab shows for inspiration.
The Whitewed Directory is no ordinary information website just for brides and grooms. As a member I have always felt that the suppliers mean as much to the directory as the couples that use its service. The Whitewed team are approachable and willing offer advice, they also go to huge lengths to making everyone feel welcome and that they are part of a team. As a member I am a surrounded by a like-minded community that I really wouldn't want to be without.
