First, some testimonials from our brides and grooms...

"Anne literally climbed a mountain to marry us! We chose a remote wedding venue on a mountain top between Wanaka and Queenstown , involved both children and dogs (huskies) , musicians skyping from L.A. , remote catering and all sorts of gymnastics with logisitics. From beginning to end Anne was a wonderful warm centering presence . She was always very enthusiastic and encouraging during our planning and kept us on track with just the right non judgemental prompts. She was always punctual, highly organised and efficient and supported us to find and do what was right for us. Thankyou Anne for being such a fabulous celebrant and support We had an extraordinary wedding and you were a huge part of creating our `Mountain Magic'."

"Firstly we would like to say a huge thank you to Anne for all the hard work, care and effort she put into planning and organising our amazing wedding day. From the first point of contact with Anne, right through until we thanked her the day after the wedding, we were treated with respect and tremendous professionalism. Anne was always available to answer our endless list of questions and never made us feel as if it was too much effort for her. Anne was truly more than you could ask for in a wedding planner. Her attention to detail was outstanding. She was always willing to make phone calls and attend meetings, not to mention ask questions that we would never have even thought to ask. Anne also made us feel that our wedding was as important to her as it was to us. Our wedding day was everything we had dreamed it would be right down to the final details. We had a dream wedding!

We will definitely be recommending Anne and RSVP Events for any special event. Our wedding was truly wonderful, and very memorable."

Tracey and Vaughan Atkin (February 2010)

"We are a UK based couple who got married in Auckland in April 2009. Anne supported us with our wedding and from the outset we knew we had made the right choice in choosing RSVP special events.

Anne is extremely well networked and as such was able to offer us choices and creative ideas as we made final supplier decisions for the big day. She is extremely attentive and immediately understood the sort of 'feel' we were trying to create for our wedding.

On the actual day there were the usual hiccups with unpredictable weather and speeches running over. Anne was completely unfazed by any of this and simply fixed things behind the scenes so that everything ran smoothly.

All in all an absolutely fantastic day made easy by Anne and RSVP special events."

Rich and Kat Kho (April 2009)

"Thank you again Anne for all you did for us - we have had so many comments about what a lovely day it was and how well organised. We were thrilled with how it all went so thank you very much - I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know organising a wedding or party! "

Gavin and Alex Lonergan (March 2009)

"Anne helped us make our wedding unique. Over two years later, friends and family still comment on how much fun our wedding was and different to others they have been to.

The staff and suppliers Anne organized to do the different jobs were real experts. And Anne really knew how to capture our desires for our day and conduct her team to make it happen."

Planning a wedding, avoiding stress, and enjoying the day are challenges in these busy times! Hiring a wedding planner will be a big help and needn't cost the earth. Your initial consultation with us is complimentary and without obligation. Our first meeting with you lets us find out what you are hoping to achieve and we can begin to build a picture of your wedding, discussing your ideas with you.

What do we do?

  • Your wedding is a very important day and we are here to help. We can advise, recommend, manage and supervise any or all aspects of your wedding. We don't take over (unless you want us to) - we love working with brides and grooms and their families.

  • We take away all the worry and the stress and help you to get organized! We are also experienced at working with brides and grooms based overseas.

  • We know all the good reliable suppliers, for example: venues, marquees, caterers, invitation designers, wedding gowns and suits, cake designers, hair and makeup artists, wedding photographers, musicians, and transport. We can save you a lot of time and money with your research.

  • We can set you up with a budget and a timeline, and we keep in touch on a regular basis -- communication is key. We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service.

  • One of the most important things we do is to take care of everything on the day. This is the day you want to relax and enjoy yourself and not worry about everything working perfectly. Your friends and family should enjoy the wedding, not have to work in the background and miss it.

  • If something goes wrong, it will go wrong at the worst possible time. That's when you need us to fix it quietly and efficiently. For example: a technical fault, a supplier not turning up, or bad weather contingency plans.

  • We have part-planning and full-planning packages, and we are more affordable than you think! We take responsibility for a successful outcome -- when our clients are happy, it's another very good day for us!
