Being engaged is such an exciting time! You have your head buried in bridal magazines, blogs, websites and Pinterest. You start to imagine your big day and what it will look like. Your head is filled with ideas and styling to make your wedding unique.
However one thing you forget to think about is, who will bring it all together on the big day? If you think you can do it yourself the morning of the wedding... YOUR WRONG!!! You will be with your bridesmaids in hair and makeup ALL day. You don't want to be running around getting sweaty and stressed. Sure your friends and family will want to help but you want your guest to enjoy the wedding. If your guest are relaxed you become relaxed as well.
Luckily before my wedding I meet Brooke a wedding planner. I sent her lots of photos and ideas. We sat down and talked about my dream wedding on the beach and what I wanted my wedding to look like. She was very understanding, practice and asked about every little detail.
I put hours of preparation and planning into my wedding. Everyone was commenting on how organised I was. But no matter how organised you are. Things will still go wrong! For example the company supplying the chairs for the wedding called to say they accidently gave my chairs to another client. My future father in law was in hospital the day before the wedding! To top it all off it was thirty five degrees on my wedding day then there was a huge thunderstorm, and it poured down 30 mins before my ceremony.
I was sitting in a lovely air conditioned room feeling beautiful and relaxed. Poor Brooke was sweating in the thirty five degrees setting up all of the decorations. Then the rain came and she grabbed what she could, and everything else was saturated by the rain including herself. The sun came back out and Brooke ran around crazy setting everything up again, drying things off, and relighting the silly candles I wanted. The guests arrived to the ceremony looking so beautiful and cold drinks and food were available for guests.
I was very lucky when I walked down the aisle the sun was shining. It didn't matter that the chairs didn't match, or some things were wet. The most important thing was seeing my future husband looking so happy and I felt beautiful. My father in law also sweet talked the doctor and was able to come to the wedding. Me and my bridal party went off sipping champagne in our bridal cars and had some amazing photos with the storm clouds. My guests went to the reception. Poor Brooke was packing everything up and the heavens opened again I think she would have gone home rather damp. Big thank you for Brooke for getting the job done.
I would highly recommend Brooke as a wedding planner! She was so easy to talk to, professional and reliable. Most importantly she will fight the humidity, thunderstorm, wind and even flies to make your wedding looking beautiful!

Brooke was the stylist/wedding planner for our Mexican Fiesta on January 3, 2016 at the Deck Bar at Rose Bay RSL. She was amazing! From the moment we made contact until the cake was cut, she was there to help us every step of the way. She really got the concept and was very creative in the execution, suggesting alternatives and doing hours and hours of research to make sure we got the theme just right.
Brooke was very generous with her time and it was obvious that she put her heart and soul into the job. She ended up working with us for more than six months in the lead-up. The day before the wedding she came to put up the decorations, and was back early the next day, supporting us with the final details and staying until the party was in full swing.
Thanks to Brooke, everything worked out just as we’d imagined it and everyone there mentioned how beautiful the venue looked and how authentic the decorations were. It really was the Mexican fiesta of our dreams!
Throughout the process, she was calm, thoughtful, professional and lovely to deal with. We couldn’t have done it without Brooke and will always be grateful for the role she played in our special day.
We’ll certainly call Brooke the next time we have significant occasion to organise and I recommend you do the same.

Just over a week ago we celebrated our wedding and we were privileged enough to have Brooke as our stylist/on day coordinator (and everything else in between!) Brooke was amazing, going above and beyond to make sure our day was exactly how we'd imagined. Without her, our day would not have run as smoothly and to top it off she is beautiful inside and out..nothing was too much trouble!! I would not hesitate to recomend her services to anyone!
Thank you again Brooke, we are so grateful for all you have done for us leading up to, on our wedding day and even beyond xxx

Brooke was an amazing wedding planner and stylist. She helped us create and plan our special day by helping select suppliers and providing us with suggestions. She was very professional, always willing to meet with us and very responsive to emails. We had a fall-themed wedding, and she helped ensure we achieved the look that we wanted, at the Church and reception. Brooke was happy to help us with every detail of our wedding and was such a pleasure to work with. On the day itself, she was on top of things. We did not have anything else to worry about as we knew that our wedding was in very good hands.
Thanks again Brooke!
