    Comments Off on Ash & Christa’s Testimonial

    “Courtney is amazing at what she does, she took the time to really “get us” and our style … she helped tie everything together! From little details to help with vendors, we couldn’t have done it without her.

    We would recommend her to anyone getting married. She really takes care of every detail and made everything thing so easy. We were so lucky to have her so we could actually enjoy our wedding day.

    We were so impressed that at the end of the night when we got back to our room, all our gifts were there, along with two pieces of our wedding cake, two bags filled with goodies from our lolly bar and a bottle of champagne.

    We had a fabulous time at our wedding and we can’t thank Courtney enough xx”

    Comments Off on Lee & Lorenne’s Testimonial

    “Courtney worked her butt off to make our big day everything we were hoping for. She went above and beyond our expectations more than once and hooked us up with some incredible contacts. Courtney even found our venue, the amazing Capriole Estates. She took my jumbled ideas about what I wanted and actually made sense of it. She ‘got me’ (people trust me…. that is a gift). Courtney is one of those lucky people who have what I like to call ‘the creative eye’ and can interpret other people’s styles. Thank you Courtney for everything you did for us. Much love, Lorenne and Lee xx”

    Comments Off on Lee & Lorenne’s wedding journey


    It started with….. a love of the beach and frangipani’s. What they ended up with was a little different, but exactly what they wanted. The first task was to find a venue and what we found was a hidden gem up in the sunshine coast hinterlands – Capriole Estate. This venue gave us great opportunity but it also changed the theming and gave the couple the chance to have a weekend long celebration with their guests as accommodation was onsite.

    With Lorenne’s Pinterest inspiration board in front of me I found myself a little lost. I found myself one day in my favourite material store and there was my answer an ivory and navy blue striped number that would serve as the table runners and also incorporate a rustic beach theme. From here I found myself in search of whimsical centrepieces. With the help of Indigo Bark I was able to have beautiful natural logs. I envisaged them being caressed with moss and delicate flowers with the dancing light of candles creating a wonderful ambience. With the help of Myfanwes I was able to create my vision. With the lighting being a key feature in this outdoor reception we needed enough lighting so guests could see their food but not so strong that you could not take in the beautiful stars above. We went with festoon lighting above the tables and over the central dance floor with soft hanging flowers that created the whimsical feel Lorenne had been seeking. Lee the groom was not left out either. With Chelsea Football team being his favourite sporting club it was only fitting that they had a football pitch as their seating chart and his favourite player’s shirts as the table numbers. With a mixture of mismatched timber chairs it really did bring the entire look together.

    Lee and Lorenne are such an amazing young couple. Lorenne had great energy and wanted to do everything. With Lee’s help we had to stop her from making 8 bridesmaid dresses, her own wedding cake and bouquets. We did however allow her to make her amazing handcrafted boxed invitations with a personalised logo that she had drawn and we also let her make her veil. They also bottled their own beer that was served on the night that really made for a great personal touch. Lee and Lorenne were on a tight budget like most couples in their 20’s but with my help and some money crunching we were able to get below the $15,000 mark. This included a two night stay onsite with no compromise. Entertainment was a mammoth 7 piece Scar band that was the best display of live music I have seen at a wedding. They did not have a bar tender as it was an open bar where everyone could help themselves but my team made sure it was constantly stocked, this also saved money for their budget. Catering was also done by Burnt Orange Events(yes I am a caterer as well…sssshhhhh)and there was certainly no compromising with fresh local produce from Kenilworth cheeses, local prawns, salmon and lamb.

    Overall this wedding was amazing and it was such a pleasure to be involved. I wish them all the best and truly felt apart of the family by the time the weekend was over.

    Comments Off on ‘Make a wish’ Foundation Luncheon

    I was so delighted to be asked to help Jess Smallman, a finalist in QLD’s Miss Galaxy create a luncheon for ‘Make a wish’ foundation. Jess being young with a great positive and vibrant personality I knew I had to create a concept that showcased this.

    I’m not one to do the same stock standard styling. So, I created this beautiful ‘Garden of wishes’ theme to compliment the charity. It’s the first time our lolly garden has been taken out for a test run, I think it was a great success.

    To all involved and especially Jess congratulations on raising much needed funds for a worthy charity.
