February 2017

When Renae got in touch with me about planning her Gatsby wedding I was thrilled! I just love being able to sink my teeth into something different and deep down I am a theme kinda girl. It was so fun to bring the look together, making it have the wow factor but still being intimate to accomodate the small guest list was really important. The little personal touches like the quotes in frames and sparking gold decor really made the theme come together. Apart from the bride seriously cutting her toe on the dance floor and streaming blood everywhere (to which her mother then requested 'Murder on the dance floor- brilliant!) the day went off without a hitch!

"Becks did an outstanding job with turning our vision of a Gatsby themed wedding into a perfectly styled art deco wedding. I was nervous when initially picking the theme that the wedding could be taken over by the theme and look like a costume party. However when Becks sent me the design board, the ideas were all surrounding elegance and sophistication. Becks also ensured the styling was not overtaken by the theme and parts of the decor and ideas during the day were unique to our personalities. Becks is very organised and knowledgeable, and made planning a wedding from Australia a piece of cake. On the day of the wedding, Becks was efficient with getting the venue styled and ready for the 3pm start. The ceremony and reception area was stunning. I was speechless I could not believe how talented Becks was. It was just the big centerpieces that created this effect is was all the thought that went into the smaller items scattered around the room that brought it all together. I must also mention how lovely it was to have Becks at the venue the next morning to pack up and encourage us to spend time with our family. It was great not to worry about the packing up. I have had many people ask about our wedding and the oh so common question… “did everything go to plan”. Yes with Becks everything ran smoothly and it was completely stress free!!! BECKS YOU ARE AMAZING! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!" Renae & Josh
