We got married on the 1st Feb 2014. I absolutely loved planning our wedding but the remoteness of the venue (no cell phone reception and no shops!) and the extreme “DIY’ness” of the day meant it took a lot of time and effort and required careful planning.
From the minute we first spoke to Bex she made myself and my husband feel so at ease and excited about our day. We had quite a few crazy ideas for the wedding (camping included!) and she was so open to all our suggestions and was truly excited and stoked to be helping with our special day.
Because of budgets we nominated to mainly have her and the team help on the actual day of the wedding but she was also absolutely fantastic in helping with the lead up to the event as well.
Providing us with contacts in the area and generally giving advice where we needed it. All of her suggested suppliers were absolutely fantastic and extremely reliable.
On the day, as she promised, we and our friends and family did not have to lift a finger! Our wedding was outdoors and it happened to be a bit rainy and extremely windy on the day. That was absolutely no problems at all! Bex and the team were right there ready to make changes to the run sheet and also taking initiative where required which was amazing. The team were also there till 2am in the morning cleaning and ready to drive people home!
All in all Bex and the team at Planet were a huge part of why our day was absolutely perfect!! It was by far the best money we spent on the day and we had SO many complements and comments about how well organised and friendly the team was.
If you are considering hiring a coordinator, I would absolutely recommend Planet Events. A team of absolutely lovely individuals who are truly committed to making your day perfect. You can tell they get such a kick out of what they do too!!
THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!
The decision to organise my wedding on a family farm all the way from Christchurch may not have been the easiest wedding option, but thanks to Bex and her stellar work, our special day went by without a single hitch.
Right from the beginning Bex was full of great ideas, and always had a solution for any problem that came up (of which there were a fair few, trying to turn a farm into a suitable wedding venue!).
Everyone she recommended was fantastic, and when planning an event such as a wedding, especially as someone who was organising a wedding from afar, this was indispensable advice when choosing appropriate vendors
During the lead up to the big day Bex was at the farm every day directing people, moving furniture, setting the tables and generally keeping everybody calm. She truly went over and above her duty and her reassurance and expertise helped keep me from having numerous meltdowns.
On the day itself Bex was invaluable in making sure everything went smoothly (I didn’t have to worry about anything that perhaps didn’t go to plan - it was all sorted before I even noticed!) and stayed until midnight making sure everything was under control. Because of her my big day was extremely relaxing and not stressful at all - I feel so lucky I got to just enjoy my day and not have to worry about what was happening logistics-wise!
Her staff were also fantastic - very professional, friendly, polite, extremely efficient, and they also stayed after all the guests had left to clear up the marquee.
On top of all of this, on a personal level, Bex was an absolute pleasure to work with - she is always calm, always happy and generally a pleasure to be around.
Both of our families are still raving about how wonderful Bex was. I’m sure that without Bex the whole experience would have been completely different (ie. stressful!) I truly could not recommend her highly enough to any future bride or anyone needing an event planner.
