WHAT DREW YOU TO WEDDING PLANNING
The beautiful couples I get to meet is definitely a big perk of the job and to help create the best day of their lives. It’s not just a job, it’s more than that, I become a friend in the planning process where the couple can reach out and bounce ideas off me or vent their frustrations to. I absolutely love love love weddings, I live and breathe weddings. Being able to help create the couple’s vision and take all their worries and stress from the day so they can enjoy one of the best and memorable days in their lives is the best job in the world.
FAVE WEDDING VIBES RIGHT NOW
Wedstival – weddings with a festival theme – think vip passes handed to guests as they arrive, bright happy colours, eclectic chairs reupholstered with vibrant whimsical patterned fabrics, couple of musical acts, food trucks, alcohol infused slushies, bucking bull and flying fox for the kids – pretty sure that’s what happened at my wedstival!
I love the individuality of weddings where couples have intricately woven aspects of styles to make it their own. That’s what I’m vibing right now!
5 FAVE LOCAL WEDDING VENUES & WHY
Site 3A Paper Mills, Fyansford – It’s a hidden treasure. Basically a blank canvass which allows the couple to inject their personality to make it their own! There’s so much history in the stone walls and wooden beams that welcome you as you enter the space.Rocklea Farm – The old woolshed on this working farm is the centrepiece of this venue. It has a rustic barn style feel to it, again it’s a blank canvass for the couple to create a space that reflects them.
Rusty Gate Weddings – Another hidden gem with picturesque views of the Bay – definitely a venue that will wow the guestsProvenance Wines – As you enter the venue your eyes are quickly drawn to the feature wall filled with wine barrels and a stunning cathedral like ceiling surrounded by bluestone walls. This is one of my faves because of its warmth and character and versatility in the spaces couples can utilise to create their special day!The Pier Geelong – location, location, location! Views of the serene waterfront as the perfect backdrop and numerous locations for photographs at your fingertips.
WHAT MAKES YOU AN AWESOME WEDDING PLANNER?
I live and breathe weddings, I absolutely love weddings and to be able to help couples create their vision for their special day is definitely a privilege I am very grateful for. I take on the stress and worries of the couples so they can focus on enjoying one of the best and memorable days of their lives. I love delving into every minute detail of the day and making sure all i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed.
My 2 favourite moments of a wedding is
- The moment the couple see each other down the aisle.
2. That moment before the couple makes their big entrance, they see the room filled with their favourite people and their vision come to life!
Knowing that I helped them achieve this is definitely why I love being a planner!
