About Lavish

Lavish Events is owned by wedding and event specialist, Amanda Wignell, who has more than 15 years’ experience in the wedding and events industry.
As the owner of an extremely successful photography studio that specialised in wedding and event photography, Amanda won many awards. She remains a Master New Zealand Institute of Professional Photographer.

As a member of the coveted “The Bridal Club”, her photography studio has offered a quality service to well over 400 couples, to date.
Amanda has experience working not only in NZ but also in Fiji, Rarotonga, Samoa, Australia and the UK.
Amanda recently moved from photographing these special occasions, to helping her clients create those once in a lifetime moments, taking the reins from Nicky Luis after working with Nicky for a number of years.

Amanda’s photography has appeared in the media for many years, websites and in magazines. While Lavish Events is now her key focus, she does offer a limited number of opportunities to book her as your photographer.

In fact, you could kill two birds with one stone by booking Amanda’s planning service, and then seeing evidence of those skills in her gorgeous photos of your event!

Ask anyone who knows Amanda and they will tell you – she’ll get it done!

“I love weddings and events, and I love organising, so this is a dream career for me. With my naturally bossy but generous personality, it works. Researching that perfect location, coming up with a look that the client wants, making sure things happen as they’re meant to, and having really happy clients when everything is finished is the ultimate goal – it’s what drives me. Seeing a setting transformed can be breathtaking, and I love it when clients see it, too. Taking the stress out of organising and letting clients enjoy their event is what Lavish is about for me”.

What Lavish Events stands for…
Our values underline who we are and what we do:
• Supporting All – We believe that every couple has the right to marry, regardless of sexual orientation, race or religion.
• Sharing and celebrating New Zealand – We are passionate about this beautiful country we live in, and love the fact that we get to share it with so many people, both local and international.
• Can do – We always have a positive attitude and find a solution to every challenge. We take pride in thinking outside the box and delighting clients with creative solutions.
• Being ourselves – We are passionate, open, caring and thoughtful. We absolutely love what we do, and go out of our way to ensure our passion is evident in all the events we produce.

Our motto for life & business…
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body; but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn-out … and screaming “Woohoo – what a ride!”

We don’t know who originally said this, but we have unashamedly borrowed it and intend to live by it!
