"I honestly don't know what I would've done without Sam's help. Probably spent way more money - and then some on therapy following the wedding. I was truly surprised by how much we were able to get through in just an hour and now I finally feel like I've got a clear direction on what we need to do to plan our wedding. I'd do this again in a heartbeat (and planning on booking in another call to follow up in a few months in fact). THANK YOU!" - Jemma + Ry | Sydney | getting married: 30-10-20.
"Can I just say that this probably saved me months of stress and research? I literally had no idea how to start planning my wedding or where to look and beautiful Sam just straight-talked me gently through what to do, in what order and when. I feel like a weight is lifted off my shoulders and my fiancé is actually super excited to get stuck in now and do this together (an added bonus I didn't expect). Would recommend to every couple that is DIY-ing their wedding like us." - Stella and Micky | Melbourne | wedding date TBC.
"We're not interested in a traditional wedding (getting married on a weekday with 30 guests, no bridal party, non-white dress, very relaxed). And Sam totally embraced this and gave us so many more ideas about how to further personalize our wedding and make it truly a day that felt like a physical r epresentation of Jax and I. I'm about 500% more keen for the wedding now than I was a few hours ago - thank you a million guys. This is exactly what we needed." - Sophia and Jax | San Diego | getting married 2-5-21.
"The best money I've spent so far on the wedding. Everyone HANDS DOWN NEEDS THIS CHAT. Sam was so bubbly and friendly and it felt like I was talking to a big sister or favourite aunty who just happened to be a guru on everything weddings. She helped me decide on my venue, decide on some of my vendors and just generally get past some concerns I had about our guestlist too. I loved how open and honest she is - am definitely going to share this service with all of my engaged friends in the future". - Char and Josh | Sydney | getting married 6-6-20.
"We booked in the wedding kickstarter because we were tossing up whether to invest in a wedding planner for our day or see if we could do it ourselves. I am sooo glad that we discovered this, firstly because we now feel really excited to give wedding planning a go ourselves as a team and secondly because I feel like Sam has given me renewed confidence in humanity hahah. Wedding planning isn't easy and she doesn't bs you - she finds out what's important to you and helps you piece together a basic plan of attack that feels completely unique to what you want. Plus she's delightful and funny and even had a wine over Skype with us. Thank you thank you thank you!!! xoxox" - Beth and Matty | Byron Bay | wedding date TBC.
