It's that poignant moment during the best man's speech, the way the flower girl tucks her curls behind her ears, or the sparkle of lights as a father brings his daughter onto the dance floor. THIS is the magic behind a flawlessly executed day that you will remember.
French Kiss Events strives to keep you and your guests focused on what truly matters while we straighten ties, seat lolly-gagging guests, and safety pin hems behind the scenes.
(all day, every day!)
There’s something incredible about a flawlessly executed event that is overflowing with stunning details, perfectly timed moments, and a distinct sense of personality. As a designer, I draw inspiration from your story, the city you live in, your home decor, and entertaining style. I love to create the perfect blend of all these things, to craft a wedding that is beautiful, innovative, and highly personal.
As the principle planner and lead designer on every single FKE event, I pour my heart and soul into each wedding as if it were my own. I am here to take away the stress that often accompanies wedding planning. My team & I take care of all the scheduling, paperwork, emails and phone calls so you don’t have to. I laugh with you, find inspiration with you, and allow you to enjoy the planning process, as well as your special day. Because that is truly, what it is all about.
Personally, my favourite time of day is morning, when I get to share a big cup of coffee alongside my handsome husband (and daughter giggling in the background). His support is a huge reason for my success as a wedding planner, and he continues to inspire me daily. I am constantly finding excuses to celebrate around the home, and “elevate the everyday”. Life is such an incredible gift, and I can’t think of a better way to stay inspired, than to keep celebrating it!

Favourite quote "A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely." - Roald Dahl
