Originally we hadn’t planned to use a wedding planner at all. However as I began to list all the things we needed to organize, I realized it would not be an easy job! The main question that kept coming up was, how will we co-ordinate the day and enjoy it at the same time? Though our wedding was on one property, we had four
Wow where do I even start, having a planner was not on my to do list when we first started planning our wedding, I had booked 90% of what needed to be booked and then it came to me that I wouldn't be able have control on the day (yes I am a control freak...at times), so I added some wedding pages on facebook and saw every second person talking about how great this Penny Williams lady was and that they couldn't have done it without her help and guidance.
I never thought I'd be able to say 'I'm hiring a wedding planner'. To me, a wedding planner was out of our reach. When penny approached me I still had those thoughts but we got talking and when I realised I could fit her into our budget It was like a weight lifted off my shoulders. In my family I'm the 'go to' person, I'm the one who answers the 101 questions a day and while planning our wedding,
"I cannot say enough how amazingly helpful Penny was with our wedding. No task was too big, or too awkward!! She went above and beyond what I would expect from a wedding planner and made the whole planning process and the wedding much less stressful. She paid for herself with the time and money she saved us by recommending cheaper suppliers or doing things that we would have paid someone to do or done ourselves.

To dear Penny & the Boda team,
I would like to express my gratitude for the time and help I received in the lead up to our wedding day.Penny was able to help me with my wedding planning & organisation, especially with the little things I knew I wanted, but had no idea where to start in finding them.
I’ve never really been a 'wedding planner' kinda gal, nor was I entirely happy to relinquish all control on the biggest day of my life....... until I met Penny.
Penny from 'Boda Events & design' goes above and beyond in everything that she does. Wedding planning is truly her passion and she puts her heart and soul into every aspect. She made all our dreams for our wedding come true - I cannot count how many hours me and Penny would have spent brainstorming ideas and talking about the big day.
What can we say about Penny, she went above and beyond our expectation the whole way. I thought when starting to organise our that this was going to be so easy as I had so much time to plan I’m talking 15 months but when it came down to it I really had no idea until I came across Penny.
Penny is just beautiful. So honest and real. She helped with anything i needed and without it seeming intentional she helped keep the process calm for someone who isnt.. Me! She keeps in touch to make sure you're on track! On the day without being noticed she flies under the radar and everything is sooooo smooth! She is incredible and still to this day couldnt thank her enough. When i think of my wedding day i always feel thankful i had her for it all!!
From the time my H2B and I met Penny we decided to relax and enjoy the journey that the 3 of us were going experience and what an experience it was. when we met it was going to a roller coaster ride for 18 months. we do not regret the decision to have Penny from Boda Events and Design in our lives. for 18 months she went way beyond anyones limits in making sure that we experienced everything that we could as this time was all about us. she works very hard in making sure her bride and groom are more than 100% happy. she was more than planner to me. she became a mother of the bride when she had to, she became a maid of honour/bridesmaid, she was there for me at anytime of day or night even the weird hours of the morning. she was a life saver. my husband and I are very greatfull for everything she done for us.
Penny from Boda Events is and was FANTASTIC. The minute I met with her I knew she had to be a part of my big day. Each and every request, question and issue I had was dealt with in the best way. Penny kept me calm on the so I could enjoy my big day to the full potential and not have to worry about anything as I knew she would be handling everything. Penny also did the styling for my wedding and the ceremony and reception space looked exactly as I dreamed and imagined. I cannot recommend her enough to each and every bride to be!!!
So helpful, so professional and an absolute blessing leading up to and on the day of our wedding! Penny made our day more perfect than it could have been. She took away the stresses of the "little details" (and some of the big ones!) so that hubby and I could enjoy the day! I can't thank Penny enough for everything she done, she is a must for any couple planning a wedding!
Thankyou so much Penny for all you did setting up our wedding ceremony last week you were amazing. The contact from you right through my planning was Fantastic and you worked with our budget and were there to sort out any other things that i needed done, like my sugn for the kids and sticker tags for invites. Your definitely the go to girl your amazing and we cant thank you enough, our wedding day was perfect and looked amazing
Penny is an absolute god send! She turned my blank canvas of a venue into the most beautiful reception. Nothing was every too much for her. Her knowledge and expertise is obvious as soon as you talk to her. She makes you feel at ease and you'll feel like she's one of your best friends. I cannot thank her enough for making everything turn out perfectly!
I was not going to hire a wedding coordinator I'm so glad We changed our mind, from the moment I met penny it was a huge relief knowing her knowledge, effort, inspiration and dedication to make our wedding day run as smooth as possible and when the wedding day finally arrived it ran perfectly no dramas what so ever and nothing was ever too much effort.
We will continue to refer her to all we know as her work was amazing.
They do say you can't put a price on a wedding coordinator or event planner and you can't!!!!
Thanks again penny ���
Would never had done it without you Xx
Where do I even start! From the time we first met penny we knew we had to have her as our wedding planner! Right from the start she was professional, punctual and made us feel so at ease.
On the day she was absolutely amazing, from delivering the flowers to helping us rehearse for our first dance, we could not have pulled the day off without her!
Highly recommend Penny for any events �
You need an option for 100 stars! You were amazing and I couldn't have done it without all your support and advice. You took away all the stress and our day couldn't have ran any smoother xo
Penny is an amazing wedding planner. At 8 weeks before our wedding, we had to part ways with our first planner. Penny stepped up and saved the day! Not only did she tell me that she could help us, but she told us she could make it our dream wedding. And Penny certainly did. From the decorations, to the flowers and even organising bridesmaid dresses. It was a perfect day. Penny worked tirelessly to make our day perfect. She was in constant contact with me. Day and night. I can't believe how many of the little things we had forgotten to do until penny came to our rescue. Even organising an amazing dance instructor so our first dance was incredible. We owe so much to Penny. We couldn't have done it without her guidance and friendship. Thank you Penny.
Penny was so amazing on the lead up to and on the day of my wedding. She helped me with things I hadn't even thought of, made the whole process and day run smoothly. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone who was thinking of getting a wedding planner, because it truly does take the stress out of the whole process.
Thank you so much Penny you were more than amazing loved having you there on our special day
What can I say about "Penny" "The Wedding Planner".... Without her we'd still be only engaged and not married! You have helped us in so many ways, not only in saving money & saving time, you sent us to all the best of the best, you listen to me stress out not only about the wedding but my own personal dramas too! Our wedding day was PERFECT!!! And we have you to thank for that, we could never have got this show on the road without you. Everyone planning a wedding needs a "Penny" "The Wedding Planner!"
Penny is amazing at what she does. She takes everything in her stride. Even with all the problems in my planning process she tackled then quickly with her bubbly personality and assured me the whole time everything would be ok.
She even took my mini melt down in stride, was only worried about me not herself, even managed to make me laugh.
Penny came to my rescue on many occasions, I couldn't have asked for a more bubbly up beat person.
Penny you are amazing at what you do.
I will always recommend your work. Best money I have ever spent.
If you don't have a planner already hit penny up, she can tackle anything and make you smile and laugh in the process.
Penny is amazing! It never actually crossed my mind to hire a wedding planner because I thought I could do it all myself but the amount of effort she put in and the load she took of my shoulders was absolutely incredible. Our day went off without a hitch and I am certain that it would not of been the case if Penny hadn't of been there. She really is an angel! Highly highly recommend everyone to hire her as their planner. Thanks again Penny!!
Boda is full of magic. Penny is amazing and passionate about what she does. If she could control the weather; she would. I'd say she'd come close to that kind of magic. She was there for us from start to finish and everything in between. She goes out of her way to help and goes above and beyond her call of duty. She kept the day calm and fun and not a thing went wrong (except a branch almost killing us). She had many roles on the day; dog whisperer, driver, waitress, unofficial photographer, bathroom attendant plus more. I would say you would be crazy not to have a wedding planner and even more crazy if you don't go with the team at boda.
Penny was an amazing addition to my wedding. I never thought I could afford a planner and now know that I couldn't afford not to have one. From the most simple things to the extreme, penny would get anything done. She put all of my dreams into reality as the ceremony and reception were set up and it turned out beautifully. I cannot thank penny enough for everything that she has done for me in making our day run smoothly with not one thing going wrong. You are an absolute angel and a miracle worker!!!
Thanks so much Penny for everything on Saturday, from setting up ceremony and Reception and also cleaning up! Couldn't have done it with out you! So thanks heaps for all your hard work your amazing at what u do and I'll differently refer too family and friends so thank u!!!
Thank you doesn’t seem enough for bringing to reality the dreams for our magical wedding. It goes beyond words. Penny your dedication and talents are immeasurable.
Your support and advice has been invaluable and I love how our brain waves synced so easily.
I hope in 10 - 15 years we can work together again when Jamie and I renew our vows!! xxx
Penny was a late addition to our wedding and was a great addition at that. Myself being a control freak and not really being able to have much control on the day Penny really was my piece of mind. She kept the boys in line and made sure they were ready on time and left for the ceremony on time, she went to the venue early and sent me photos to make sure I was happy with everything, she helped direct the photographer and suggested some great ideas which I am sure will make for some great photos. As everything was already organized for my wedding when Penny became a part of my day she took on my schedule and followed it to a tee. I honesty didn't see much of Penny once the reception started as it is such a busy part of the day but every now and then I felt the tap on the shoulder advising that another formality was about to happen. My day ran very smoothly with very minimal stress and I believe Penny was a big part of this. I can not recommend Penny highly enough I was able to relax and enjoy our day thanks to her.
Penny's dedication to our special day was exceptional. No ask was too big no hour was too late. Penny went above and beyond to ensure our vision was created and day was carefree, both were achieved. She is now not just a planner to us, we look to her as a friend. Thank you Penny Williams x
Penny is without a doubt the most dedicated, organised and talented wedding planner. The guests noticed and commented on the attention to detail at our wedding. Penny is a hard working individual who always seeks feedback, to capture what you envisioned.
She goes above and beyond.
I hired penny for on the day services as we were getting married in the botanical gardens and only had a limited time to setup and pack up etc and I wanted my family to enjoy the day and not be run ragged!
Well it was seriously the best thing we ever did! Penny Made the day so easy and relaxing! And helped it be just the most perfect day! They coordinated everything and it was all seamless!
I had major dress issue and she was able to fashion straps to my dress so it would stop falling down! Seriously!! She saved my day!!
And even though I only hired Penny for on the day! She still gave my pointers and tips for planning the wedding along the way! She was able to put me onto suppliers etc that saved me thousands of dollars!
Penny and the team at Boda are seriously worth their weight in gold! And worth the cost! Having them will save you money and your sanity in the long run!!
I had met Penny by chance through the venue i had my ceremony at. She at the time was their events coordinator and was assigned to coordinate my wedding ceremony. I walked into our first meeting furious at the venue for their lack of professionalism and organisation. (im usually a very shy keep my emotionas to my self kind of person) I sat down with Penny and was ready to unleash my rage and burst out in tears. As soon as Penny started talking to me she made me feel at ease and relaxed
she ran through everything with me and made me feel confident in my choice. Penny stuck by her promise of being there on my wedding day, despite not working at the venue any longer. Penny was easily contactable and very helpful. Thank you!
