Christina + Ben

“First of all, we wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything that you did for us leading up to the wedding and on the day itself. I was the type of bride that didn't enjoy the planning process at all and found it super stressful! I hardly knew where to start, I didn't know what to look for or what to ask certain vendors and I found it hard to narrow down the never-ending options. When Amanda came along, she immediately calmed me and made it all look easy and like there was nothing to be stressed about. All she did was talk to us about what we envisioned, stalked my Pinterest boards and then came up with a few different concepts and quotes of exactly what we wanted, like she was some magical wedding fairy. Even when I suffered a mild heart attack from price shock, she reassured me that we could still achieve a similar look within budget with a few changes, a little DIY and an enormous amount of effort and kindness from Amanda herself. I kept thinking 'Is this woman real or am I dreaming?’ Every step of the way, Amanda went above and beyond and always made us feel special and worth every minute of her time. Her passion for love and weddings is incredible and the way she talks about what she does is inspiring but watching her do it is even better. On the day, Amanda kept everything rolling as it should so neither my fiancé or myself had to worry about a thing. We knew she had it covered. She was even there to support us in making the dreading 'wet weather' decision … she always had our back and was going to make it work whatever way we wanted. Amanda is a true professional and an absolute lifesaver. Everyone planning a wedding needs a planner and on-the-day coordinator and if you want the best, you want Amanda!!!” – Christina + Ben


Christina and Ben are two gorgeous people with two very big hearts. They met on a contiki tour (I love it!) and on return home, Christina couldn’t get that cute grin out of her mind. Ben was feeling along the same lines, so he hopped on a plane from New Zealand to Australia and kinda, well, moved in … and the rest, as they say, is history! It was such a pleasure to support them both in bringing together all their ideas and taking on the challenge of executing it all in weather conditions that nearly had us running for cover. It all turned out so well as you'll see...
