About One Curious Dream
As an award-winning wedding planner, Jo Pyman from One Curious Dream works with couples from all corners of the globe to expertly plan, stylishly design & professionally produce stunning, authentic, rulebook-free weddings throughout the UK.
“Chic city micro-weddings, extravagant weekend-long celebrations in beautiful country estates, flamboyantly fun festival weddings, elegant marquee garden affairs – you name it, I’ve planned it! Whilst every wedding I produce is deliciously different, one thing will always remain the same – it will be totally true to you.
As your wedding planner, I’ll embrace the things that inspire you, the ideas you love, and your aspirations before producing a beautifully authentic and personal wedding that feels just like home. A One Curious Dream is always authentic, never ostentatious. Stylish, but never stuffy. Your wedding, and yours alone.
As your dedicated wedding planner, I’ll be your right-hand woman, chief organiser, number cruncher, cheerleader, ideas guru, creative director and confidante all rolled into one! Working closely and collaboratively with you, I’ll lighten the load, take away the overwhelm, undertake the bulk of the hard work and inject some creativity and fun into your planning experience. I’ll take care of the details, large and small, and enable you to enjoy the wedding planning journey as much as the destination!
With planning studios in London and Norwich, I travel extensively to work with amazing couples and plan incredible weddings right throughout the UK.
I’d very much love to help bring the wedding from your wildest dreams to life!”
From the moment we met you, through to the wonderful wedding day, you have been WONDERFUL. From the suppliers you advised us on, the incredible decor and your endless cheer, we couldn’t have asked for more.

Jo and the One Curious Dream team did an amazing job taking over from another wedding planner and planning our weekend wedding for us while we are located in Hong Kong. Very dedicated, organised and solution-orientated, would highly recommend!

We wanted to say an absolutely huge THANK YOU for playing your part in what was without doubt the best day of our lives. It smashed all expectations beyond our wildest dreams and we are just overwhelmed with gratitude for it all - the perfect combination of set up, guests and just love and pure magic. We have had SO many people say it was without doubt the best wedding they have ever been to…it really feels like you absolutely nailed it. Just don’t even know how to put into words the level of gratitude and love we have felt over the past few days, and a huge part of that is down to you. So once again, THANK YOU!

Frequently Asked Questions
Where do you plan weddings?
As a multi-award-winning independent Wedding Planner, I work with couples across the globe to professionally plan, beautifully design and expertly produce wow-factor, award-winning weddings throughout the UK.
From London, Norfolk, Kent and Essex through to the Cotswolds, Scotland and Surrey, I happily travel and have an amazing portfolio of wedding venues and supplier throughout the UK. So, no matter where you hope to get married in the UK, I’d love to help!
How much do your wedding planning services cost?
Following an initial consultation, I’ll be able to provide a tailored proposal based on the complexity, size and duration of your wedding. Full planning fees start from just 12% of your overall wedding event budget, and a minimum investment applies.
Additional fees are chargeable for multi-day weekend weddings or where additional site-based coverage is required. I’m very transparent in my fee structure and will ensure no hidden surprises, so you’ll always know how much my wedding planning services will cost.
I’m also able to offer a fixed fee for larger wedding budgets, so do let me know if this is something you would like to explore at your wedding consultation.
Do we have to use your preferred wedding suppliers?
As a truly independent Wedding Planner, I’m not tied to recommending specific venues or suppliers, so you’ll always have access to the very best of the best across the industry which allow us to build a personal, unique wedding that’s designed just for you.
It’s no secret that I have an incredible little black book full of top local wedding industry suppliers who are tried, tested and thoroughly trusted. I want your wedding to be exceptional, so I will always recommend the very best wedding suppliers (that work within your budget) for you to consider. Many of the wedding suppliers that I work with regularly offer discounts and incentives to my wedding planning clients too, and of course, savings and discounts are always passed on to you.
However, there is no pressure to accept my supplier recommendations, after all, it’s YOUR wedding, and YOU remain in the driving seat at all times. I regularly work with new wedding suppliers too, so if you have a wedding business in mind already, then tell me all about them, and I’ll find a way to incorporate their services into your wedding. I do ask that all suppliers provide a legally sound contract and have appropriate insurance in place.
Do you charge commission?
I do not accept any form of commission or referral fee from wedding venues or suppliers.
I charge fairly for my wedding planning services, based on my skills, experience and your specific requirements, so I have no need to seek additional profit for the work I have already agreed to undertake for you.
This means you can rest safe in the knowledge that my wedding venue and wedding supplier recommendations are always made with your very best interests at heart and that all discounts and savings are passed directly to you.
Are you insured?
Yes, absolutely. I hold public and employers liability insurance as well as professional indemnity insurance.
Where are you based?
The One Curious Dream HQ is based in Norwich, and our satellite studio is in London.
I split my working week between both locations, and I regularly travel further afield throughout the UK to spend time with my couples, and of course, produce incredible weddings!
