HAYDN + JOE | hunter valley | Wedding + CELEBRANT
Nat was our celebrant and wedding planner and we could have not have asked for a more perfect day. We owe one of the happiest days of our life to her. Nat radiates love, beams positivity and has exceptional standards with everything that she does. She made the nervousness of getting married melt away and the months leading up to the wedding were a breeze! We can't recommend or thank her enough!
Isaac + Jane | sydney | celebrant
Nat is absolutely wonderful. She is warm and genuine, calm and patient, and took all the stress out of what can be quite a stressful experience. Because of COVID restrictions, we were unable to meet Nat in person before our ceremony and only spoke a few times on the phone, despite this, she wrote a beautiful ceremony that suited us perfectly. My family and friends can not stop raving about how great she is, and it was an absolute pleasure to have her there on our most important day. I will be recommending her to everyone I know!
Daniela + daniel | sydney | celebrant
Nat was very very easy to communicate with.. and very flexible to make sure our day worked perfectly during uncertain times of covid. We would highly recommend Nat as she is very professional and loving at the same time. Thank you x
NATASHA + SIMON | LAURISTON | WEDDING + celebrant
I cannot emphasize enough how essential engaging EventZen for consultancy services and on-the-day coordination was for helping us plan a budget wedding and to thoroughly be present and enjoy the-day-of! Natalie consistently had exciting and pragmatic suggestions that only an experience and passionate professional could provide. She is fun, patient, flexible and very easy to work with. It felt like Natalie was a long-term friend who was excited to navigate the wedding journey with us. Such a pleasure. Thank you again EventZen!
Angelica + Alex | Sydney | Wedding
"Wow! Natalie from EventZen was amazing, she coordinated all of my suppliers at the venue, ensured everything was arranged properly & helped everything run on time. Even when the weather turned bad she was researching options for us & ensuring that we had a beautiful, relaxing day. If there were any other dramas I wasn’t aware of them, it was all taken care of. I would hire her again in a heartbeat for any other event!"
Agatha + Toby | Sydney | Wedding
"EventZen brought ease to our wedding day. In the lead-up working with suppliers and on the day making sure everything went as we had planned. Nothing was too big an ask and she really took on all the small things we hadn't thought about. Having her there meant we were able to relax and enjoy such a huge milestone in our lives."
Kiana + Rob | Sydney | Wedding
"My only regret about hiring Nat was not doing it sooner! From our initial meeting with her we walked away completely confident that she was the only missing ingredient from our day and we never looked back. Nat went above and beyond to be involved in all aspects of our day, attending the rehearsal as well multiple site visits when I was feeling anxious about certain parts of the day. Nat's presence on the day ensured everything ran smoothly and I couldn't of been happier with the EventZen team. It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend Nat to anyone planning a big event. We are so grateful and so lucky to have found her!"
Lara + Cass | Erskinville | Wedding
"Nat! Where do we begin! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!
You made our dream wedding so effortless and easy for us.
We felt like we were in such capable hands all day and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to EVERYONE!
You are a true professional - The best in the biz xxx"
Tahlia + Nick | Shoalhaven | Wedding
"We recently worked with Nat at EventZen for our DIY wedding on the Shoalhaven River, and we could not recommend her services highly enough.
Pulling a wedding together from scratch for 170 guests is an almighty task, but Nat took the stress out of things and helped us to craft a day that was completely bespoke.
Nat worked with us tirelessly to curate those personal touches that made the wedding so uniquely 'us' — and are what our guests will remember most about the day.
From asking the guests to say 'vows' to us during the ceremony, to the bridal party arriving at the aisle in a pimped-out golf buggy, Nat helped us to evoke the sense of fun and adventure that we wanted to capture on the day. She also encouraged us to take some time out during the reception to be alone and to simply reflect on what was happening; which was one of our favourite moments.
Nat is the consummate professional — efficient, personable and highly creative, we would collaborate with her on another event in a heartbeat. It wasn't like working with a wedding planner, it was like working with one of your closest friends.
Thank you again for everything you did to make the day such a success!
We literally couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces all day and that was due in large part to how smoothly everything ran."
Susan + John | Sydney | 60th Birthday
"I wanted to throw my husband a once in a lifetime birthday party and thankfully I had Nat on my side. We moved five years ago from Sydney to Brussels so I needed boots on the ground to coordinate everything. From the beginning, Nat was available and enthusiastic. She is a good listener and communicator. I knew what I wanted and she quite beautifully created it. She has a relaxed and optimistic way about her.
There were a few times when we were trying to find an appropriate venue that could have been tense and disappointing but Nat was very dedicated to our brief and was determined to find the right place. And she did. One thing I also appreciated is, you could be as involved in the process as you wanted. Doing this long distance meant there were times when I wasn’t available but she always kept the ball rolling. The party, based on a typical music festival, was fantastic right down to the eucalyptus scented candles to a massive tee pee with fairy lights, a big stage and food trucks. We really created a music festival and the party was exceptional. I also think Nat has a good aesthetic and is very stylish. I hope I can work with Nat again in the future because it was a truly a creative, fun and exciting experience."
Becky + Jay | USA | Elopement
"Natalie was absolutely amazing! She took all of the stress out of planning our elopement from halfway around the world. We gave her a moment's notice to plan and execute everything and she really made it the best day of our lives! So thankful that she took care of every little detail. She was a true joy to work with, we have no regrets and would do it all over again.
Thanks for a stress free elopement on Sydney Harbour!"
Brita + Tim | Bali | Wedding
"Nat is the most calm, beautiful and organised person in the world. We organised our wedding overseas in Bali and she just made everything so easy and seamless. Nat captured everything we had discussed and no details were missed. I couldn't have asked for anything more"
Jenny + Kim | Crescent Head | Wedding
"Nat at EventZen truly made my wedding a Zen experience. Her attention to detail on the day and before meant the event ran without a hitch. She provided a customised amount of help being a little or a lot depending on my needs. All major decisions were handed on a platter and everything else taken care of so that I could spend the time with the people in my life that are important to me. If you’re doubting whether the money is worthwhile, don’t - your happy, stress free memories will stay with you forever"
Kate + Peter | Sydney | Wedding
"I could not recommend Natalie from EventZen any higher. We used Natalie to help us plan and design our wedding after we were recommended by a friend. We were lost and overwhelmed by all the choice out there on places like Pinterest and the internet for Floral design, table design, theme and colour – we didn’t know where to start. We were also limited by our budget! As soon as we met Natalie we knew we were in very good hands, she is a true professional and very easy to work with. She communicated with us every step of the way, checking in on every idea she had and kept well within our budget. She came with creative ideas that we would never have thought of. She went far beyond an event planner and stylist in helping us with a number of little things that popped up, in her own time. Definitely went above and beyond!!
On the wedding day Natalie was there to set up everything, coordinate our vendors and offer any last minute support. With her in the lead our wedding was beautiful and all our guests complimented all the styling, beautiful flowers and gorgeous little touches. Our day wouldn’t have been anywhere near as perfect if we were doing it alone. It’s so lovely to have our photos to remember and admire it all. Thank you Nat!"
Liza + Stephen | Sydney | Wedding
"Hiring Nat from EventZen was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process. Ever since then, her creativity, attention to detail, organisation and dedication to us continued to impress. Our free time can be very limited and Nat made herself available 24/7 and answered emails and phone calls straight away.
She is authentic, professional and a great problem solver. Knowing Nat was there and on top of things put us at ease, especially on the day so we could really enjoy ourselves!"
Lauren + Tim | Terrigal | Wedding
"I was the typical DIY bride. I thought I had it all under control and could manage the day with no problems. As the day was fast approaching, I had a sudden panic that I had no idea how to make everything 'run' smoothly on the day. And how on earth do all my vendors talk to each other when I have hired them all separately??? Enter Nat. She picked up all my messy pieces and put it all together. From the run sheet, to confirming all my vendors and making sure they were doing their job, Nat was there. I could relax on the day knowing she was behind the scenes telling people what to do and where. Not to mention solve any crisis' that occurred on the day, and oh boy there was a crisis! Just before the reception was about the begin the bar staff realised that our red wine was missing. Nat to the rescue. She raced out and purchased enough red wine for the night. Life saver! It was a pleasure to work with Nat and she truly made our wedding day a million times less stressful. Best decision I ever made!
Ati + Vik | Sydney | Wedding
Nat is amazing! Since we found her in the process of organising our wedding, a huge amount of stress just lifted. She found us all the suppliers, designed the entire look and most of all made it an easy process! Our reception was just beautiful and Nat made sure she designed something that suited our style as well as our budget. I wish we’d found her sooner and couldn’t recommend eventzen more highly!
Penny + Tom | Sydney | Wedding
"When I first got engaged I didn’t really know where to start, and I knew that working full time in a demanding job would make it difficult to plan a wedding, especially after a long day, or a long week. I wanted to enjoy my wedding, not stress about it. Natalie was absolutely fantastic – she was so professional, organised, communicative, positive and ensured that our wedding day went without a hitch!
Natalie consulted with my fiancé and I every step of the way and found fantastic vendors that suited both our theme and budget. I felt less stressed because I knew that whilst I was at work, or enjoying my weekend, Nat was busy planning my wedding. She was very accommodating and pulled everything together seamlessly, took the worry out of having to contact vendors, kept records of all the vendor payments and on our wedding day we didn’t have to worry about anything.
Having spoken to friends about their wedding days, I realised that not everyone enjoys the lead up to, or their actual wedding day, because they are too stressed trying to work out logistics, sort out vendors and answering questions about timings etc. One friend was so upset she cried during her wedding dinner because the venue kept pestering her with questions whilst she was trying to eat her meal or listen to the speeches. Thanks to Natalie I just turned up and had a ball – she worked flawlessly in the background the whole day (which is even more impressive given it was 42 degrees that day). I can't recommend Natalie & EventZen enough.”
Brita | NSW South Coast | 40th
Nat was a lifesaver, she basically handled every aspect for us. She dealt with all the suppliers and was there on the day to make sure it all ran smoothly. Nothing was too hard and she came up with awesome suggestions to reduce the budget.
The styling, food, everything was perfect and the fun flowed all weekend. As always, Nat and her team were absolutely amazing and worth every cent, I wouldn't have a party without them!"
Michelle | Sydney | 40th
"Not a natural hostess, wanting to enjoy the party and not stress about the logistics, I decided to outsource and it's the best decision I made! Planning with Nat is a pleasure; she very quickly understood what I was looking for and delivered the party of my dreams....and apparently everyone else's dreams as well based on the comments I'm still hearing a month later! On the night Nat handled everything with ease and poise and left me to enjoy one of the best nights of my life. Truly amazing."
Netna + Darren | Melbourne | Wedding
"Natalie was there from the beginning, we planned the wedding over 2 years. She made a Google drive and was always available, we had 250 people and she was all over it. She handled it beautifully from the name tags to bombonieres. She was so sensible and brought me back to reality and helped me with our budget. She was very tasteful and thought of everything. Couldn't rate her enough, I could talk for days about how great she was."
Rachel | Sydney | Wedding
“I was so excited to plan my wedding but was quite overwhelmed when faced with so many things to do and I was at a loss as to how I would handle working full time and manage to organise our wedding day. I connected with Nat and she was a godsend, I already had a few things in place so we negotiated a package that worked for our needs, she helped with the key decisions and most importantly managing everything on the day. Our wedding was wonderful, relaxed and everything ran like a dream. I absolutely have no doubt in my mind that this dream day was down to our wonderful relationship with Nat as our planner. Her approach is cool, calm and collected - everything a couple could ask for when planning such a big event."
Sam | Melbourne | 30th
"Nat from EventZen was absolutely brilliant in organising a celebration for my 30th in Melbourne for a hundred people – she suggested a venue that was different to what I had planned and I am really happy we went with her suggestion, the feedback was fantastic. She managed and organised all the room fit out and sorted the food and drinks (including managing the bar tab), in addition to flying down to supervise on the night to make sure everything went to plan. The whole thing went perfectly and was exactly what I was looking for on the night. Thanks Nat!"
Jonathan | Ocean's Group | Business
"Natalie has managed a number of corporate and in-house events for me, Natalie is very professional in her approach and very attentive to her clients. The results for us have been fantastic and the events were simply stunning. Natalie has a knack of spending a small amount of time with her customers and interpreting what will get them the best/desired results from their business events. I'm looking forward to the next one!"
Glenn | Newtown | 40th
"EventZen handled my 40th birthday and they were amazing! It was a big party with a wild and unique theme and Nat utterly nailed it. No stress, no hassles, just awesome memories, mischief and mayhem! All I had to do was turn up!"
