what some of our couples have to say
Stephen & Michelle
Words cannot express our gratitude for Michelle. Our wedding was something out of a magazine! It was the PERFECT wedding and it's all because of her. Her attention to detail and devotion was something else. Everything was handled with such professionalism and ease, it made the whole journey a breeze until the very end.
She also organised our recovery day party which was a massive event in itself, and she even came back to help the staff clean and serve drinks!
Michelle is such a kind, warmhearted, positive person that we truly feel like we’ve gained a lifelong friend.
If you think you don't need a wedding planner, think again and if you think you can go with just any one THINK AGAIN!
We will be forever grateful for the work Michelle did for us. x
Alana & Hadley
Words can’t really express how very much we appreciated your guidance and expertise in making Alana and Hadley’s wedding the perfect day it was. It allowed us to enjoy the occasion without stress and we highly recommend every Waiheke bride should have you!
Your dedication and attention to detail was wonderful and we know you went far and beyond your brief, especially in packing up and taking the flowers up to The Bach ready for the next days function so that we could have a sleep in!

Destination weddings definitely bring a different level of undertaking to the wedding planning process so we decided that a Wedding Planner was the way to go.
When we got in touch with Michelle it was almost an immediate weight lifted from our shoulders. Michelle seemed to fully understand the type of wedding we wanted as well as us as individuals and the emotion behind the day and we had not even met her yet. We connected with her in an instant and she was there with us – by our sides every step of the way. We felt it and so did our guests.
Michelle there are no words to truly express what you did for us and how special you made this day for us – you will forever remain in our hearts because you were more than just a Wedding Planner for us. You became a friend who continually was there to support our love and the vision we had to express that.
Thank you for everything from the bottom of our hearts!

Michelle is nothing short of a wedding fairy godmother. She made my fairytale wedding come to life. Weddings are naturally stressful events, but when I decided to have a family only destination wedding in New Zealand sight unseen, it ratcheted up the stress to epic proportions. From the first time I spoke with Michelle she put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. When we met for the first time the day before my wedding, she anticipated so many of my needs it was as if she could read my mind. I didn’t have a maid of honor and she readily stepped up to the plate to help me with everything from decorating the venue, to calming my mom down, to even helping me steam my wedding dress that I carried in tow all the way from California. My wedding was a dream. It was pure magic and I honestly owe it to Michelle. If you want the best wedding planner than Michelle is your only option. She is dynamite at her job and she genuinely cares about her clients.

Michelle is a wedding angel. We had the best wedding day (ever!). The overall wedding experience from day 1 meeting her, all the way up until our wedding day was superb. The success of the day has a lot to do her input, advice and support. Michelle connected us with the best suppliers who all provided us with a great service (our guests are still talking about it). She also has a wonderful style and demeanor which means a stress-free and hassle-free experience for the bride and groom. We wish we could experience the day all over again - i am confident that anyone who uses Waiheke Island Weddings will have the most magical experience. I couldn't speak more highly of Michelle and cant thank her enough for everything she did for us.
