Bespoke Surrey Wedding Planner

Hi there and a warm welcome to my blog!   I’m Cynthia, bespoke surrey wedding planner, designer, and stylist here at Alegrar Events.   I love planning weddings, particularly the creative and design process.

It's got that 'old world meets new world' charm as I like to call it. Walking in, you find high...
