. Wedding Planner and Stylist .
Bow Occasions is a boutique wedding planning and design company owned by Kent wedding planner, Louise Rowland. Only a short 40 minute train journey to London and an hours drive to the home counties, my Kent base is the perfect location to plan weddings in the South of the UK.
I work closely with my couples to uncover their unique story. I enjoy sharing that story in each step of the planning and design process ensuring no detail is missed.
I believe that the wedding planning process should be as memorable and exciting as the wedding day itself. Throughout our time together planning your wedding, we become friends.

Hi, I’m Louise, owner and lead wedding planner at Bow Occasions.
I find such joy in planning beautiful, timeless weddings for my couples. With a passion that marries planning and design, I ensure that each wedding I plan is relaxed, stylish and unique.
My style is industrial meets organic. I love planning elegant marquee weddings with an industrial twist as much as I love planning modern, warehouse weddings with an organic twist.
I’m a true romantic and more often than not, can be found standing at the back of the ceremony room with a tear in my eye. No matter how many weddings I plan and attend, they never get tiresome and this is how I know that I have found my true passion.
A few of my favourite things include days out with my husband and son, dinner dates with my husband involving a cocktail or two and afternoon tea with friends. I also love nothing more than curling up with a good book or a hot bubble bath to relax

Think We’d Be A Great Fit?
We really felt a need to have someone trustworthy and 'on the ground' for us considering that I was going to be in Dubai for about 9 months prior to the wedding. After speaking to you, we felt that you were reliable and someone that would get the job done. We also felt that you really went further for us and understood our story and how long it had taken us to get to this moment of planning our wedding as well as our expectations for the day.
Our wedding was a complete fairytale and everything we could have ever asked for. Everything we had asked for and arranged went off without a hitch (not that we noticed!), and our guests have given us the best feedback we could have asked for. Thank you so much Louise for helping us put together the best day ever!

Once again thank you! I don't feel that we can say it enough - you really did a terrific job. The fact it went so seamlessly well is testament to the effort you put into the day and the job you did. Despite being a massive control freak and probably incredibly annoying for you I felt so relaxed and trusting that you were in complete control and that I could just enjoy myself which is very unusual for me!!
We had the most magical day and you were such a huge part of making that happen so thank you again! We will be sure to shout your name out to anyone else we know having a wedding!!
Emma and Richard, Osea Island, Essex
A huge thank you to you for everything you did to help make our day so wonderfully smooth and stress-free. You were organised, helpful and so understanding with all our crazy last minute changes and you helped make us feel so relaxed about it all, as we knew you had everything covered. More than anything, we appreciate the fact that our parents didn't need to lift a finger or worry about anything as you had it all sorted. Thank you for coordinating all the various suppliers and ensuring everyone was there and set up on time, there was not a single complaint from any of our guests!
We seriously could not have wished for a more wonderful wedding and a big part of that came down to you! Thank you so much again for everything.

We just wanted to say THANK YOU. Everyone said how perfect the day was, and how very us. We really couldn't have made it work without you (especially the marquee!) A lot of people seem to focus on how stressful planning a wedding is, but it really felt as if we just got to make it the day we wanted it to be and I think you're responsible for that.
Looking at the photos, and thinking back, all I see is smiles and that's exactly what we wanted. Thank you for making everything seem so effortless, for letting us spend the day twirling in bubbles and roaming around barefoot while you kept the day running.
Keep the date free for our golden anniversary... we'll be recovered enough for another party by then!
