Julia Baird was my wedding planner for my wedding in summer 2014.
It is very difficult to plan a wedding, let alone plan it from overseas and only arrive in the country 1 week prior! But with Julz there to help me every step away it made it so much more stress-free knowing that she was all over it.
As I contracted her quite late in the planning process, her role was mainly to help me make it all come together in the week leading up, on the day and post-event. Notwithstanding, she always made herself available to contact and provided many suggestions/ideas/ templates for me to use and gave me advise and constructive feedback on my ideas. We communicated through Skype regularly.
In the days before the wedding Julz was very proactive about ensuring things were coming together as planned spending all of her day organising and supervising so that I didn’t have too. I did not have a stress in the world! When there were minor issues with vendors I hired, she resolved them and went above and beyond to ensure there was no impact. On the day, she was critical to it all coming together while I got ready and her creative flare really shone through. I felt very comfortable leaving it in her capable hands. She worked extremely well with all the different vendors coming to site and the site owner. I only had good feedback from them on her. During the event everything ran to plan thanks to her magnificent coordination. She responded and accommodated to guests needs while still making sure my wedding vision was realised. The next day, she went above and beyond again, being the first back on site to arrange the clean up and coordinate the movement of a lot equipment, food and alcohol to a recovery session in a different location.
Not only is Julz very organised, a good communicator and pays attention to detail, but she is also fun friendly and very personable which are all the qualities you should look for in a wedding planner. I would highly recommended her for anyone planning a wedding either domestically or from overseas. She will be there every step of the way and she will make your day so much BETTER!
