Hi, my name is Penny and I am a wedding planner! I LOVE weddings! I love meeting couples and hearing all about their unique love stories and helping them to create a day that is special to them but also effortless and fun.
As your planner I can be as involved as you need me to be to take the pressure off you and save you from stress.Its often not just about the stress for some brides often it can be having someone to give advice, support and a shoulder to cry on when needed!
I love everything about weddings – from supporting brides with dress fittings, to creating themes and making unique, personalized items to go with it.
If you need me to do the styling set up and pack down of the ceremony and reception so you can enjoy the big day, I’ll gladly do that for you!
If you need help with speeches – including for members of the bridal party or anyone else who is giving one – I can guide you on what to say.
If you need help with your vows and putting pen to paper to give each other vows that are personal and meaningful, I can help with this too!
Other areas I can assist with include creating a photo list for your photographer of the types of photos that you like and a list of the important people you want to ensure your photographer captures on the day. I can also create an itinerary for all your suppliers on the day with all the important contact numbers listed so you have a timeline that allows everyone to be on the same page.
And if you need rehearsal assistance if the celebrant can’t be there or need to show bridal party members where to stand, and how to hold flowers and so on, I can do this too!
I’ve been planning weddings for four years now, but before I did this I worked in finance assisting brokers and using my marketing ideas to help run programs for potential clients. I’ve always loved planning events for as long as I can remember – at school I created a dance group because there wasn’t one at school. Eight years ago I started hosting singles events playing matchmaker for people who didn’t have time to search for love or were having problems finding genuine people. It took off and before too long I was running events every week – this is actually how I met my own husband! And as they say, the rest is history! I am a fully qualified Wedding & Event Planner.
My team at Boda Events & Design has been personally hand-selected and live and breathe weddings as much as I do. We love love, and we love to celebrate it – and we want you to have the perfect stress-free day.
When not planning weddings and spending time with my two girls you will catch me transporting rescue dogs and cats all around melbourne, this is part of my giving back to the community but also a good reason to help. I just love to help!
