‘Courtney was introduced to me through a mutual contact as I needed assistance for my Miss Galaxy event. Our first meeting she came fully prepared with lots of fantastic ideas! Anything I couldn’t put into words she had a way of understanding and putting it into a concept that we would then be able to use at the event. She went above and beyond and nothing was a problem. Which has made this event a successful fundraiser for the Make A Wish Foundation. There is constant communication to make sure everything stays on track for your event to be AMAZING. They say ‘Your event, Your way’ and it is 110% true! If you’re looking for a team that will listen and help craft your ideas into a reality I would highly recommend Burnt Orange Designs! I can not thank you enough Courtney! :)’

    On the 4th of June 2014 I had the pleasure of working with the very talented Nigel from NKN Photography. From my first meeting with Nigel I was impressed by his joyous personality that is reflected in his pictures. He really works with each couple to understand their style and capture the raw emotions of their special day. We highly recommend NKN Photography to capture your day so contact Nigel today.

    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.
