After spending all my spare time trying to organise my wedding, and working full time at the same time, I got quite stressed. So, overwhelmed, I searched for a Wedding Planner to help finish the planning.

I found Lavish Events, which offered both wedding planning, and day manager services. We met with Amanda, and went through our ideas of what the day could look like; she asked us questions we hadn’t even considered, and she showed expertise, by immediately making suggestions. We felt straight away that she was the best person for the job, and she quickly got to work. Amanda found a photographer, caker, and florist; she handled communication with our musicians, the church, the reception venue staff, the caterers, and the horse and carriage company. She sorted all items to be hired, and built a list of drinks, bought everything, and ensured everything arrived chilled, and food arrived hot. She even took graphics I had used on our wedding invitations, to create custom name cards for each guest. 

On the day she ensured everything happened on time, and dealt with any new issues arisen.  We got on so well together, that I felt we could all be candid and critical with one another. 

Overall, it was a magical day, and we are so thankful for the help of Amanda; without it, our dreams and ideas could not have been exemplified as they were. The photos taken are beautiful; and we will forever cherish our wedding day.

Mike and I would like to give you our sincere thanks for your organisation of my 50th birthday celebration this month at our home.

Having organised many parties and events, I know the amount of work that goes into hosting a successful event, so it was with some trepidation I handed over the reigns to someone else to organise a milestone party for myself.

However, from the moment I met with you, to the numerous phone calls, emails and subsequent meetings, I always felt that you had everything in hand. From organising the quotes for the marquee,  dance floor, catering, entertainment, design and decoration, you always made sure I was aware of each step and gave me options to consider along the way.

Your input into design and decoration was invaluable along with giving advice on entertainment, event flow and timings. Your flexibility around using different and local suppliers was also reassuring and refreshing, so we could support local business.

As a result, we had the time of our life that night with everyone raving about the décor, food, drinks, service and entertainment – it was a huge success and so much fun – which  was the key objective!

Please see below the text messages I received the next morning – 

‘Wow Sam. What a party. Mike and I really enjoyed ourselves. You both put on a memorable evening.’ – Janine B 

We just had the best night ever. Seriously it’s right at the top of our best nights out EVER. Thank you for your hospitality and entertainment galore!’ – Mandy M

What a party! Thank you for having us–we had a blast.’ – Catherine

‘Spectacular evening guys,very,very enjoyable!’ – GrantM

Amanda, thank you again for organising a wonderful evening and we will certainly recommend you to any friends and family looking for a professional and organised event and party planner.

We wish you and Lavish Events a successful future.

Kindest regards Samantha Webster & Mike Pausler June 2017

I’m very satisfy with Amanda’s party planning for my baby girl Olivia’s 100 days calibration party at The Langham Hotel.
She helped me with the room decorations, offering so many good opinions on colours, flowers and seats plan. Amanda also kept an eye on the budget, helping me pick options to keep on budget. Amanda was great. Everything looked beautiful and perfect. I would definitely recommend Amanda again, and will use her if I have any future events.
