“Just wanted to say what a beautifully amazing job you did on our Wedding.
Not only leaving it to a month out for you to organise everything but you did it all with such professionalism, efficiency and creative flare. I would be HIGHLY recommending you to ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY!!!
When I walked into our ceremony the room literally made me stop and say “wow!” It looked amazing!! The reception was everything we wanted and you grasped our concept and ideas to a T!! You also helped smooth out any issues and your hard work showed throughout the day. I am so grateful to have found you and would not hesitate to sing your praises to anyone that will listen.
Thank you Thank you Thank you!”

I just wanted to thank you so much for the amazing job you did coordinating our wedding on Saturday. You were simply wonderful, and worked so hard to tie it all together to create the most perfect day for us.
From the moment we spoke on the phone, you were the consummate professional. Your experience, advice and creativity finessed our vision, and it was so reassuring to have you there.
Everyone commented at how smooth the day ran – one friend said the day was ‘completely faultless’. We simply couldn’t have achieved this without you.
Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts!”

“My husband and I got married at the Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat on January 11th 2014. We used the Wedding and Event Creators to help co-ordinate the event and it was one of the best decisions we made!
In the months leading up to the wedding, Vanessa was always so easy to communicate with and so helpful with ideas and suggestions.
I met with Vanessa at the wedding venue the day before the wedding to run through how we wanted things to go and to go through the long list of jobs I had for her. Our wedding was quite large with 200 guests, lots of different suppliers and lots of stuff to do! Vanessa completely put my mind at ease and took so much stress out of the whole thing. I woke up on the morning of the wedding with no stress at all because I knew it was all in Vanessa’s capable hands.
On the day of the wedding Vanessa and her team went so far above and beyond my expectations to make sure the entire event ran smoothly. They thought of lots of little things that we hadn’t even thought of, like running to the shop to buy lunch for the groom and groomsman who had forgotten to organize anything to eat for the entire day leading up to the late afternoon wedding ceremony.
My parents have said that they felt like guests at the wedding because they didn’t have to do anything and that is exactly what I wanted! I felt so confident leaving everything in your capable hands on the day before I got there, you were awesome!!
Having Vanessa as the point of contact for all of the different suppliers on the day meant that my husband and I could really relax and enjoy the entire wedding without having to tell anyone where things should be or when things should be happening. It made the whole thing so enjoyable and stress free.
I honestly cannot thank you enough for everything you did on our wedding day! I really appreciate how hard you worked and your attention to detail!
Hiring the Wedding and Event Creators for our wedding was worth every single cent!!”

“It is also with our great pleasure that we write the below testimonial. Thank you again for all your amazing help!
When we booked the Kangaroo Valley venue for our wedding in May 2013, we chose it on the basis of its dramatic setting, and planned to carry it all out on a DIY basis. We had an army of willing friends and family keen to help, and thought we would just figure it out as we went.
However, while we had no shortage of help, it became apparent that there is a lot more to organising a wedding that we had expected, we also realised that there were a number of things that we didn’t want to ask family to do on the day – since it might interfere with them enjoying their day at the wedding!
We brought Vanessa into our team as our day of wedding coordinator at the eleventh hour – and it was immediately obvious that she just absolutely knew what she was doing and had done it all before. She contacted our vendors to introduce herself, and began to figure out what we had thought of and what we hadn’t. Though Vanessa was brought on board with very little time to catch up on what we had planned, she managed the day superbly. For me, just knowing she was there was a huge relief.
Vanessa was with us from a couple of hours before the ceremony, well into the dinner reception. She assisted in ensuring last minute decorations had been set up, that table decorations were in order and that our dessert table was organised. She volunteered for tasks before it even occurred to us that they would need to be done. She interacted seamlessly with our other vendors and was an absolute pleasure. The very idea that she was somewhere fighting fires before we even knew about them was a comfort.
My main piece of advice to other brides is to bring a wedding planner into your wedding team, particularly if your wedding is out of town or at all DIY – they can do so much more than source vendors. I just wish I had brought Vanessa on board earlier – it would have prevented a lot of anxiety and the occasional tears. However, I am so grateful we found one another when we did!
Vanessa, thank you so much for your calming influence and supreme organisation on the day of our wedding.”

“Sean and I just wanted to thank you so much for everything that you did for us to make our day so special.
I contacted you 3 months out from the wedding in a stress because I had too much going on and I could not work out how anything was going to work with my time and all the ideas in my head.
You made everything so easy- from the many emails and phone calls to the meetings when I had time- you just made everything so easy!
Hiring you to coordinate our ceremony and reception (and us) was the best thing we ever did I honestly don’t think I could have made it all come together without you.
You thought of things I never would have thought of, ideas I never would have come up with.
From sourcing things to hiring things for us it was great and made that crazy time in my life so much easier!!!
Having our ceremony on a private farm was our big dilemma about how it was all going to work and how everything was going to get done and all back to normal again. But you were the angel in the light, from making meetings to liaising, to making sure everything and everyone went in the right place on the day, and that everyone parked in the right place you were there to do it. And a few hours later you would have never known we were there.
The reception centre looked amazing and with my many miss- matched ideas and colours you somehow put it all together and it looked amazing.
So thank you Vanessa 10/11/12 would not have been the same without your help.”
Thank you from, Mr and Mrs McGee

“I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Vanessa, Narelle and the rest of the Wedding and Event Creators team for their professional, courteous and prompt service provided to us in the lead up to, on the day of and the days proceeding our wedding. I must admit it is hard to give up control of things to do with your wedding, however Vanessa instantly made us feel as ease, providing us with helpful advice and suggestions.
All correspondence was responded to in an extremely timely manner and no request was ever too difficult. With the potential for bad weather on the wedding day, Narelle provided us with suitable options as a contingency plan which helped keep us both calm in a stressful situation. At the last minute on the wedding day, Narelle worked super efficiently to ensure our dream ceremony could take place outdoors moving chairs, decor and an arch into the perfect position.
Upon walking into our marquee reception we instantly noticed how beautifully everything was laid out, there is absolutely no way we would have been able to set everything up in such a nice way. It simply looked magical!
We highly recommend the Wedding and Event Creators when planning a wedding – you can definitely trust they will help your wedding vision come to life!”

Renee & Justin
Just wanted to let you know how amazing your assistance was at our daughter Renee’s wedding. When she first suggested hiring you I asked why because I know how extreme & methodical she is at planning and styling her own events.
What I/we didn’t account for was her sick baby for over 2 months before the wedding, with all his appointments and treatments we really got delayed with the wedding planning, even the big things like bridesmaid dresses and boys clothes were last minute details. But you were there! Even just to steer us in the right direction, giving us suggestions and advice. Your assistance was invaluable!
I don’t know how we did it but we managed to pull off an amazing unique wedding, which was Renee’s dream. On the day, you put in so much effort, above and beyond what was expected, and knew exactly what was to happen and when and dealt with all the small details so that we could totally enjoy the day. That was no small feat when it was a farm wedding with minimal facilities.
So from our family I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts and I will be recommending you to anyone who will listen!”

“THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
I met with the florist you recommended today and you were right on the money! Her work is amazing and so much more affordable AND to top it off she is so nice. Exactly what I was looking for so THANK YOU! One more tick in the box and one less thing to stress about!”
Dear Vanessa, I really don’t know how we can thank you enough for everything you did to make our wedding day the amazing day it was. We look back on the day and we are still so shocked (and stoked!) that we scored the most incredible wedding ever- and you played a huge part in making it that way.
You are so organised- you had everything running so smoothly- like clockwork, and I was actually able (for the first time EVER) to be able to turn of the virgo-perfectionist-control freak and enjoy our day as I knew you had everything under control (Even to the point of caring for and feeding my child while we waited for the nannies to arrive!!).
I sincerely thank you so so so much!

Danica & Trav
Thank you so much for helping our wedding day all run so smoothly. So many people commented that it ran like clockwork, and that was due to you and all the work you did to organise the details like the flowers, the water, of course cueing the music for the ceremony, and getting wedding favours and our table plan put up on that beautiful easel.
Your support prior to the wedding and advice on the running of the day was invaluable. The chocolate bar favours that I managed to taste were fantastic- I just wish I ordered more for personal use!!!
I really appreciated how you liaised with the reception staff, florist as well as the hire company to bring it all together- it meant that I could think about getting married to the man of my dreams and not be worried about the details as I knew you had my back.
Thanks again, and please use the testimonial above to promote your fantastic self and your fantastic business.

“Vanessa Bragg is a creative person, she listened and took all my ideas, adding her expertise, and made them better than I could have ever imagined. Vanessa and her team are a group of professionals of the highest degree, friendly, helpful.
On the actual day of my wedding all I can say is Vanessa transformed my hotel room to a luxurious wedding suite. I was blown away by the beautiful décor and felt as if I set onto a photo shoot in Paris. Breathtaking!
The reason I contacted Vanessa was so I could use my photographer to his advantage and get those beautiful pictures that we pay for. Vanessa and her team considered the theme of my wedding and they investigated the hotel room before she transformed it. Within 2 hours I returned from my hairdressers to find White backdrops, French dresser, crystal candle, fresh flowers, bed accessories and every other little fine detail that made my photo’s look amazing.
Vanessa created the exact feel I wanted and I trusted her opinion and expertise, so she took control and the room turned out absolutely perfect.
Vanessa is far the best and I plan on using her in the future for more events.
I would like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for the work you did for us. It was perfect! You are the BEST!”

“I cannot thank Vanessa enough for going above and beyond in helping making my wedding, both ceremony and reception nothing less than perfect! I contacted Vanessa 3 months out from my wedding and not only did she take a massive load off my shoulders she it with such flair and creativity! She was there for as little or as much as I needed! She helped me relax on the day as well as prevented long nights sitting up preparing Bonbonnieres etc. I have a unique, quirky style and Vanessa captured this to a t and many people complimented on how well both the ceremony and reception depicted my personal style. Congratulations and thank you times a million for making my day both relaxing and beautiful!”

“It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Vanessa and her very capable staff. It was difficult to organize such an amazing 3 day event from Melbourne and Amsterdam, but without Vanessa’s incredible foresight into many unforeseen issues it would not have been possible. We would highly recommend her services. Thoroughly enjoyed by everyone :-)”

“Many thanks to Vanessa and her diligent team.
Everything we asked for and imagined was provided from Bali flags, ceremony decorations, candles, flowers and great photo booth props etc.
Vanessa had some great ideas to add to the brief to make the wedding scene extra special.
Vanessa even sourced some special things for us – not a problem was her answer. Her vintage lounge and lamp finds were perfect.
Everything was done in time and taken away the next morning – making it so much easier for us to enjoy the wedding without the extra stress,
Thank you Vanessa and team!”

“Thanks Vanessa for all your help on the day of Jenna and Geoff’s wedding in November 2012. It’s amazing that we only met with you face to face the day before and you seemed so completely in tune with what Jenna wanted and her vision for her reception. You were so well organized, asked exactly the right questions and were so calm. Your calmness and experience shone through and really helped us all to relax. On the day we had absolute confidence in you and felt completely comfortable to just leave it all to you – this was a great achievement on your part considering we only brought you in on the whole thing right at the end. You kept us all so calm on the day and we were able to just enjoy the moment knowing you had understood what was wanted and how Jenna wanted everything to look and the mood to be created. We can’t thank you enough for helping to make the day so perfect for Jenna and Geoff. I would definitely recommend you to others and we are so pleased that we connected with you even though it was by pure chance. Funny how things happen for a reason! Take care and I hope the New Year bring lots of lovely brides (and their mums!!) your way. Thanks again.”

“Simon and I just wanted to say thank you again. From the beginning you understood exactly what we wanted the ceremony and reception to look and feel like. The French provincial couches, the lights. You made the day look absolutely beautiful with your set up. I felt like I could trust you with all decisions and you bent over backwards to find those couches for us! We appreciated it very very much.
You were very professional and prompt in all your communications. I could not fault your customer service at all.”

I was so happy with absolutely everything from the beautiful arbour that you made for my wedding to the whole rustic set up for the dinner, it turned out even better than how I imagined it would!
Also, so happy with all the suppliers that you referred, everything just turned out perfect.
It was great having you there on the day taking care of just about everything, thank you so much!
I really appreciate all of your hard work, all the best with everything.”

“We found Vanessa a few months after our engagement and immediately felt comfortable when we met her for a latte in Wollongong. Vanessa is such a lovely person on top of being very professional. We were obviously stressed during the planning stages and it was so good to have Vanessa on board to make sure we were on the right track. On the day itself, Zoe took over and we didn’t have to do anything at all. I didn’t need to do anything! I couldn’t recommend the wedding and event creators enough. They were fantastic.”

Jack and I really appreciated all the effort you guys went to on the day to make it the best experience we could ever have hoped for.
It was an absolute pleasure to have you both involved in the whole process. Nothing but good words to say 🙂
Thankyou so so much again.”
