Meet Belinda our Geelong & Bellarine Peninsula Wedding Planner.

Belinda on her own wedding day!

Belinda came to us with years of weddings and events experience under her belt, and has proven to be a popular choice for couples wanting a wedding in the Geelong and Bellarine Peninsula areas.

We’ve asked her a few questions so you can get to know this amazing lady!

The beautiful couples I get to meet is definitely a big perk of the job and to help create the best day of their lives. It’s not just a job, it’s more than that, I become a friend in the planning process where the couple can reach out and bounce ideas off me or vent their frustrations to. I absolutely love love love weddings, I live and breathe weddings. Being able to help create the couple’s vision and take all their worries and stress from the day so they can enjoy one of the best and memorable days in their lives is the best job in the world.

Wedstival – weddings with a festival theme – think vip passes handed to guests as they arrive, bright happy colours, eclectic chairs reupholstered with vibrant whimsical patterned fabrics, couple of musical acts, food trucks, alcohol infused slushies, bucking bull and flying fox for the kids – pretty sure that’s what happened at my wedstival!
I love the individuality of weddings where couples have intricately woven aspects of styles to make it their own. That’s what I’m vibing right now! 

Site 3A Paper Mills, Fyansford – It’s a hidden treasure. Basically a blank canvass which allows the couple to inject their personality to make it their own! There’s so much history in the stone walls and wooden beams that welcome you as you enter the space.Rocklea Farm – The old woolshed on this working farm is the centrepiece of this venue. It has a rustic barn style feel to it, again it’s a blank canvass for the couple to create a space that reflects them.

Rusty Gate Weddings – Another hidden gem with picturesque views of the Bay – definitely a venue that will wow the guestsProvenance Wines – As you enter the venue your eyes are quickly drawn to the feature wall filled with wine barrels and a stunning cathedral like ceiling surrounded by bluestone walls. This is one of my faves because of its warmth and character and versatility in the spaces couples can utilise to create their special day!The Pier Geelong – location, location, location! Views of the serene waterfront as the perfect backdrop and numerous locations for photographs at your fingertips.

I live and breathe weddings, I absolutely love weddings and to be able to help couples create their vision for their special day is definitely a privilege I am very grateful for.  I take on the stress and worries of the couples so they can focus on enjoying one of the best and memorable days of their lives. I love delving into every minute detail of the day and making sure all i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed.

My 2 favourite moments of a wedding is

  1. The moment the couple see each other down the aisle.

2. That moment before the couple makes their big entrance, they see the room filled with their favourite people and their vision come to life!

Knowing that I helped them achieve this is definitely why I love being a planner!

So you can’t have the wedding you want unless you know what you want, right?

And even if you THINK you know what that is, it’s unlikely that you and your partner have really, truly uncovered it (because it’s usually hidden beneath a whole lot of confusing opinions, rules, fears and worries).

So we thought it might help if we showed you how uncover what perfect means to you (the results may surprise you!), help you to create your very own, personalised wedding ‘blueprint’,  and then get you on track to actually making it happen.

We had the most amazing time! It went so smoothly and everything was just as we had imagined! 
Dad even thanked you in his speech!

One of the BEST decisions I have made in this whole wedding planning process, hands down.  All of my guests were raving about how carefully, thoughtfully and uniquely planned my wedding was.

Your kind, consultative approach and talent for design and coordination is nothing short of phenomenal and was pivotal to the success of our day.

We didn't have to worry about anything except getting ourselves ready on the day - she really helped make sure everything went off without a hitch
