Recommended colleagues

In 22 years of working in a particular field, you end up working with and alongside a number of other people in related fields.

 

You get to see how they work and what sorts of people they are. This is a list of suppliers that I have worked with in the past and found to have been very good. The list includes Gold Coast Wedding Venues and planners, photographers and videographers, musicians, DJs, florists, stationers and so on. Note that the people I would particularly recommend have their titles standing out in BLACK TYPE.

Unless otherwise indicated, you can contact these suppliers through the Contact Page on their website.

 

DISCLAIMER

In all cases, the people on this list are people with whom I have actually worked. They are known to me as conscientious, professional and competent, and as people whose behaviour and dress at ceremonies is excellent. I am always pleased to hear that I will be working with any of them.

This list is not exhaustive, and there are many fine suppliers who are not listed – only in the interests of keeping the list short enough to be useful. Any supplier who feels they should be included is welcome to ring me.

The Gold Coast wedding venues listed are all known to me from personal experience, and I list them just for your information, and as places appropriate for your consideration.

I do not receive “kickbacks” in cash or in kind from any of the recommended colleagues mentioned, and have no interest in their businesses – financial or otherwise.

Elly Hart

Singer par excellence and guitarist

Ellie has a very wide repertoire, and can be relied upon to enhance any occasion.  She has a fabulous voice and being an excellent guitarist, she accompanies herself. She uses no recorded music.

Joanna is a music teacher, performer, and conductor.  Best advice is to check out her website. You will find plenty of examples of her musical skills.  Her associate artists are also first class musicians.

Gold Coast City Council

The Gold Coast City Council allows weddings in parks and on beaches, subject to public events and other functions.  There are restrictions, and a small fee is charged for their use.  The application and fee is intended to prevent double bookings, and to ensure that any insurable events are covered.


Celebrants

 

I know. You may think it’s a bit funny my recommending other celebrants. However, you may prefer a female celebrant. Or I may not be available on your preferred date. So here are a couple of people I have come to have a lot of respect for over the years.
