Wedding Planning and Coordination Reviews

 


“Just wanted to pass on how impressed we were by your staff. My Dad in particular was highly impressed by how professional and organised they were and how well Jeff lead them. We both thought Jeff was great and nothing seemed to be a problem for him, and he offered and came back the next day to help with the pack up and that really impressed us, as it was well above and beyond what was needed. Over all your staff really made our day as stress free as it could be and we were so so thankful for that.”

“I seriously can not rave about Kate and Courtney enough! They made the whole process easy and really enjoyable and we had so many compliments on the day about how smoothly everything went and how lovely they were. It meant myself and my family could sit back and just enjoy the day, knowing someone else would take care of everything for us. That was priceless for me. Would recommend to anyone and everyone to have a coordinator on the day and especially Kate and Courtney, worth every penny! Thank you!!!!”

“It has been our pleasure working with Kate. You can feel her passion right off the bat and that she wants to help you have the wedding you wanted. Preparation for our wedding has been a breeze. Everything went as we wanted the preparation to be, smooth and easy. Neil and I constantly met with Kate to tell her what we wanted and she never failed to give us the perfect advice on how to make it happen. Finding the right vendors to help us in our wedding has been very easy because of her. Hiring Kate as an event coordinator is highly recommended”

“My wife Amanda and I approached Kate to assist us in planning our wedding day as honestly the prospect of planning such a huge and important (and expensive) event ourselves
without any help or guidance freaked us out.

Kate met with us regularly throughout the year to keep us on track and advised us on specifically what we needed to do and by when. She helped us cover all aspects of the day including tiny details that we would never even have thought of ourselves and would have missed completely (or rushed around at the last minute in white-knuckle panic to sort out). Kate was excellent at keeping us well organized and giving us peace of mind when anxieties started to set in. Kate had a backup plan (and a backup plan to that plan) if any problems should arise.

On the big day itself Kate was absolutely incredible. She worked tirelessly (with a bad cold) from early in the morning to late at night ensuring that everything went smoothly. Because of her industry experience she had existing relationships and rapport with everyone from vendors, photographers, videographers, to the venue itself. Nothing was a problem. We had the most amazing and memorable day that was everything we had hoped for and beyond and there is no way it would have worked that way without Kate’s incredible management and influence.

Kate is extremely professional, experienced and hard working and we cannot imagine how we would have survived let alone pulled off the day that we had.
If you want your big day to be stress free we cannot recommend her enough. Thank you Kate.”

Kirsty and I cannot express our gratitude enough to Kate. Throughout the whole process of planning our wedding, Kate was an amazing help. She helped us make clear and concise decisions with regards to what we really wanted on our special day. She supported us with hard decisions as well and honestly made the whole day so memorable. On the day of the wedding, having her there to tell us to take time out and to be the person that people could go to with issues meant that we were able to 100% focus on ourselves and enjoying the day. I honestly don’t think we could have had the wedding of our dreams without Kate. Highly recommend her and we are so blessed that she planned our wedding.”

“Kate is an absolute must to work with when planning your wedding. We had a 6 month engagement and not once were we stressed. Kate ensured that at every moment prior to our wedding everything was under control. Each month Kate would provide us with what needed to be organised within the month so we always knew where we were at. Kate also ensured that our Wedding Day ran smoothly. We truly had the best day of our lives and didn’t have to worry about a thing. When engaging Kate to work with you for your Wedding Day you are signing up with a true professional. We cannot speak more highly of Kate.”

“The decision to have a wedding coordinator on-the-day was, without a doubt, the best decision we made! We had put so much hard work and planning into organising our wedding, we both just wanted to relax and enjoy the day when it finally came. Having Kate close-by throughout the day, providing constant assurance that everything was going according to plan (whether it was or not!), meant we could do exactly that – enjoy our day. Also our guests were very grateful to have a “Go To Girl” with any last minute queries or plan changes without feeling the need to bother us on our special day. Realistically we knew there would always be an unforeseen ‘something’ that couldn’t have been planned for (and there was!), but knowing Kate was there to deal with it, should and when it happened, was an absolute godsend. Thank you Kate – I just wish I’d had you there for the post-wedding party at home the following day too!!”

“Brett and I absolutely loved having the Collective Concept team, Jason, and the one and only Kate herself, as part of our day and we could not have had such a perfect magical day without all your expertise and help, not only on the day, but in the 12 months or more leading up to it. We can honestly say that there is nothing that could’ve made our day any more amazing and spectacular than what is was. I love that you’re spreading your wings and focussing on weddings, it’s easy to see that’s where your passion lies and it shows in everything you did for Brett and I. We’ve just had the two most perfect weeks of our lives so far and you played such a huge part in that Kate, we are and will be forever grateful xx”

From start to finish your organisation, professionalism and knowledge meant I could trust you to deliver an event that we, along with our family and friends, will never forget. Not even a cyclone could stand in your way! There are a few standout things I would like to mention:

  • In our consultations leading up to the big day, you really listened to what I wanted and you were able to give great advise based on your knowledge of the hospitality industry – what to expect for the budget we were working with, how much food and alcohol would be required for the number of people etc.
  • You were super organised. You would often keep me on schedule as I was busy with work but you knew when to step in and make sure I had done what was needed at the right time. You had full Run Sheets for me and others on the day which meant we all knew where we had to be, at what time and ensured the day flowed smoothly.
  • The catering was first class and the staff you brought in were so professional, the service they delivered was far beyond any expectations I had. Our family and friends raved about how good the food was and the standard of wait staff.
  • I wanted to be quite hands on with our wedding day as I knew what I wanted and of course, it has to be right! As any Bride will know, this requires a huge amount of planning and organising but at some stage you have to trust someone enough to let them take over so you can just enjoy your day and celebrate with your loved ones. You were that person and it allowed me to do that – thank you.
  • You hadn’t met our parents before but after the wedding they could not stop singing your praises. You communicated with them so well and they felt so confident that you knew what you were doing and had things under control.
  • The whole day was nearly destroyed by cyclone Wilma, followed by a car accident killing the power to the caterers! Without your calm demeanour,quick thinking and top notch organisation skills we wouldn’t have been able to pull the whole thing off. YOU LITERALLY SAVED THE DAY.

I cannot thank you enough for all you did for us. I can only recommend your services to anyone I know who is getting married”
