Do Something Different

We are all so different but the thread that joins us all is a desire to do things our own way, be fearless in your happiness.

If you are of no particular age and still have that sense of adventure, then say yes to working with me.

I help couples who are more intentional about their choices and cherish each moment in life and each day is a gift.  We are only here once, right?  It isn’t a dress rehearsal.

Be more you

Go all out on having the kind of day that makes you feel incredible.  Wedding planning will be a refreshing journey taken together!

If that sounds like you then my bespoke wedding planning is the perfect match.  I offer a responsive approach, no packages to tweak. Your wedding day doesn’t exist until the moment we sit down and explore the wonderful things that make you, well YOU.

Be Yourself You Look Beautiful That Way

You have made the decision to say yes to each other, do it in a way that is more you.

Be inspired by the wedding blogs and magazines, but do not let this overwhelm you.

Be fearless in your love for each other and the things that matter to you and you LOVE.

Everything is a Choice

Say yes to those things that ignite your senses, that will wow your loved ones in an atmosphere unlike any other, this is what counts.   Life-affirming moments, when shoulders are relaxed, and there is an underlying feeling for something deeper.
Your concerns are more than the outfits you will wear and what flowers will go on the table.

To get that there you must have choices including with whom you wish to work.

Is it me you’re looking for?

I’m for intrepid individuals who aren’t afraid of the road less travelled.

Who are fearless in their pursuit of happiness whenever that may come long.

We are lucky if the person we want to share our life with finds us sooner rather than later.
Sometimes we will experience sadness but love finds us again and that’s when it is important to be authentic.

Have gratitude for second chances and be fearless in your happiness.

I speak from experience and that is why I will be your biggest cheerleader.

Confidence in our differences

We are all so different but the thread that joins us all is a desire to do things our own way, be fearless in your happiness.

You can read about how to have a wedding that makes your soul sing in my blog post.

When the mix is right you will have an experience just like Fiona and Richie who brought their families together from across the globe to this countryside villa Tuscany.

An accent of Alchemy

There’s an alchemy in those moments in life you never forget. When you can recall with brilliant clarity the smell of the air, the taste of the wine, the sound of the music drifting in waves on the balmy air. Those elements combine to make something that is bigger than the sum of their parts. That’s what we’re seeking. To line up each nuanced detail alongside a backdrop of emotions, senses, history, culture.
To nurture exactly the right conditions for a bit of magic…and sometimes we need to be fearless in that pursuit.


I’m Jo, and for more than a decade my life has involved planning beautiful bespoke weddings in Italy under the Accent Events brand.

 Like all the best adventures, my path here wasn’t linear I have had some interesting detours.  My life changing moment came when my first husband passed away, the idea of carrying on as usual wasn’t an option for me, so I left my corporate job in London for an escape route.  I escaped to many places, I became a tour leader for groups of adventure travellers.

I met people of all nationalities and ages at different stages in the lives, with the notion to explore the world. It was during my second season of tour leading that I met my Aussie husband Martin (now an indispensable part of the A-Team) and discovered that heading into places I didn’t know, thinking on my feet, and planning events and tours for different types of people brings out the very best in me.

I decided to start Accent Events when I hit the big 4-0 birthday.
My personal goal was to create something from the ground up where I could use my creative skills.  The freedom to work from home fitted with my lifestyle.  We relocated from London to the wide open spaces of Cambridgeshire along with our three dogs and set about renovating a 1930-style bungalow.  It was here that the idea of Accent Events took hold.

I knew that my style of bespoke wedding planning would be natural and fresh, honest and uncomplicated to remove any anxiety of wedding planning in Italy.  Weddings have become so much more than church or registry office ceremony followed by a “nice” reception.

Bespoke Weddings in Cambridgeshire

I am expanding my services to include bespoke wedding planning in Cambridgeshire too. As a practical, hands-on kind of person, my role is as your supporter and collaborator, enriching your experience with creative vision, bringing together a team of talented creatives that understand your values, and getting stuck into logistics.

I just love the challenge of creating something that’s never been done before.
I am a listener, I love a great story and that’s got to be one of the best bits of my job learning who you are and what it is you dream about.

We’re partners in crime for upwards of a year so it is is really important that we have a sound relationship, can you imagine 12 to 18 months of planning and its a total mismatch?  Meeting you in person at the earliest possible time will tell us if we are going to be a hit.  If not, no harm done and we will hopefully have shared some experiences, had a few laughs and go our separate ways on a good cup of coffee or glass of wine.

Jo Daye Destination Wedding Planner Italy

Lauren & Stuart

“Jo – or we prefer ‘Superwoman’ – is an absolutely incredible wedding coordinator. Words cannot describe just how fantastic she is at her job. When I first spoke to Jo, I was clueless about where to begin with our wedding and she was immediately warm and helpful and made me feel as though she had all the time in the world for me. She conjured up many dreamy scenes of the range of possibilities available in Italy, from beach weddings and Lakeside settings to enchanting rustic villas.

Jo embraced our ideas and made suggestions too based on her wealth of experience. She completely understood what we hoped to achieve and was infinitely helpful, even to the point of taking fans and candles in her hand luggage for us!

Over in Italy, she insisted she and her husband Martin do everything, and their help was an absolute godsend and their attention to detail was incredible. We were overwhelmed by Jo and her team; we couldn’t have done it without them and will be eternally grateful.”
