MEET THE SUPPLIERS: Elegant Weddings and Events
Tell us how you got into the Perth wedding industry?
After completing a bachelor of Design, majoring in Spatial Design, I wasn’t sure which direction to take my career. I always like to try new things and expand my knowledge in different areas. I found myself working for a flower wholesaler and I knew my passion was in the details. Talking to brides-to-be about their wedding flowers and I found myself always asking about the venue, the style of wedding, the dress etc, as it was all the details of the wedding that needed to work together. Wedding styling then became a natural next step and the perfect way to combine my love of design and creativity.
What was your favourite thing about working in the wedding industry
It’s the combination of so many beautiful elements coming together to create someone’s dream day. So many people dream of their wedding day and it is all the individual parts; the dress, the flowers, the decor, the lighting, the cake.. everything plays a part and everything works together to make your wedding individually you. I just love that I can be a part of that.

What is the one thing that your business is most proud of?
I would have to say our growth over the last few years. We have grown year on year, with a large part due to referrals from previous clients. Having new clients that have already seen our work or been recommended by someone they trust is the best compliment you could get. My business is me, and when referrals come through saying how much they loved my work or how easy I made it for them, that is why I do this. That’s what keeps my passion alive.
What is one piece of advice you would offer a bride to make their wedding day extra special?
Find something that is important to you as a couple. Whether it be a key feature or statement piece, or a smaller detail within the colour scheme or flowers. Pick something that is unique and special to the both of you. Focus on that and everything else will fall into place around it.
What is it about your product/service that sets you apart from your competition?
I work with all my clients on a personal level, I believe my personal approach and friendly attitude makes sure my clients always feel comfortable, relaxed and in control throughout the whole process. I am always looking to grow, not only my business, but also myself with every wedding I do. Which means I am always going beyond expectations to make sure everything I do is the best it can be. At the end of the day my business is a reflection of myself and my passion, creativity and integrity.
