The reason I even thought of this business idea was the DIY and creation of my own wedding! Choosing a gorgeous property in the heart of Wollombi, NSW as our blank canvas venue was always going to be a challenge, but it was a project I had been waiting to organise since I was a little girl.  From there we had to envision how it would all come together and with the help of our suppliers, bring it all to life. The lead up was exciting and fun to organise, the only barrier we faced was who was going to be in charge to execute the minor stuff on the day, like styling the 150 guest tables, seating charts and signs and lighting the candles when the ceremony was over. All the stuff that seems to just happen and you never even think of. I was getting calls from the suppliers whilst I was getting my make up done and I can tell you, it definitely gets tiresome when you just want to start enjoying your hard work.

All we wanted to have on our mind, was the amazing vows we were about to commit to and celebrating the most special day of our lives. Friends and family offered their assistance but we all know they would have much rather be enjoying the weekend as a guest and not so much as the ‘help’.

We pulled through but if I had my time again… I would find someone like me to help out!

Here’s a few pics of how the day unfolded.
