At Lavish Events we plan stylish, elegant, exciting, fun and above all, highly memorable celebrations. We are Luxury Wedding Planners for savvy, sophisticated couples who are looking for something extraordinary. Our discerning, international client base includes sporting personalities, high-spend public figures and professional couples seeking unique and surprising celebrations.

We offer a full service package for our clients who would like us to take care of all your wedding planning arrangements, so that you can continue with your busy lives.

Every client is unique and every wedding is different from the last; each wedding that we plan is created to our clients’ specific needs.

Why do couples hire a wedding planner?

Some of our clients prefer a professional wedding planner to handle the details of their wedding from start to finish for them. They want everything to be perfect and understand that a professional planner will achieve this for them. Some clients are working professionals and simply don’t have the time to undertake all the planning themselves. Others may start the planning process on their own and then find it all a bit too much  – that’s when they call us in to take over.

Wedding Styling Service

One of the additional services we offer, which comes as part and parcel of our package, is our décor and styling service. We are often tasked with pulling together all the styling elements of the wedding, from the colour palette to the theme. We then draw on our vast resources of wedding professionals (florists, hiring companies, printers, etc) to create sheer magic.

Our Team

Our internationally experienced events team will ensure your wedding is perfectly planned and executed, allowing you to relax and enjoy every part of the planning process, as well as the wedding itself. We work with some of the best suppliers in New Zealand to ensure your wedding will reach the the highest of standards. Please visit our About Us page to read more about who we are, what we have done and how we do it. More importantly, please visit our Testimonial page and read what our past clients have had to say – their words are far more important than anything we write!

How it all works…

As each client is different and has different wedding needs, we tailor our wedding packages to suit each individual client.

We will consult with you about the type of wedding you would like, the style, your guest numbers, location, budget and more. A quote will be drawn up specifically for your wedding planning needs. If you are overseas or out of town, we can arrange a Skype meeting or liaise via email.

Price guide

The initial consultation is free of charge and normally takes about an hour. We prefer to do this face to face, but can arrange a Skype meeting or phone call (international calls are fine, too).

Then we work some of the costs for you based on your wish list and go from there. Most of our clients pay between $5,000 and $7,000 for the planning and event management, with wedding contract costs negotiated for you through our expert suppliers.

We also offer On the Day Wedding Director services – perfect if you have done the planning yourself and just need a coordinator to ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day. This is normally around $2,500 for the day.

If you would like to have a no-obligation consultation with Jess, please email her or give her a call, to set up a convenient time to chat.

Living overseas and returning to New Zealand to get married?

Many of our clients are expat Kiwis living overseas but who have decided to get married here in New Zealand as most of their friends and family are here.

Planning a wedding from half way around the world can be quite a daunting task, and that is where we come in. With our local knowledge and contacts, we make it easy and stress free;, not only for the couple, but also for their families here at home and their guests.

While we are based in Auckland, we do organise weddings all over New Zealand for couples living all over the world.

If you would like to have a no-obligation consultation with Jess, or ask any questions, please email her or give her a call on +64 22 277 6275, to set up a convenient time to chat. Viber and What’s App messages are accepted also.
