Dear Em

Thank you for everything you did to make our special day the amazing day that it was. We could not have had the day that we did without your guidance, professionalism and amazing ability to organise and maintain calm.

Your relationship with suppliers and our venue made for a seamless event and allowed us to enjoy every minute of our day. The respect you demonstrated towards our families and friends was simply amazing and we can’t thank you enough for how hard you worked to ensure everyone was accommodated for.

We wish you all the best for the future and would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a wedding planner. We already miss working with you! All the best, Miles and Michelle

We absolutely loved working with Hayley for the styling of our wedding, she has such a great ability to turn thoughts and ideas into a reality. We were so lucky to have the combination of Hayley and our wedding planner Emma Newman, as they work so well together and were able to transform our ideas into something more than we could have ever imagined. When we first decided to have the wedding we were a little bit worried about planning it from the UK and arriving into Christchurch the week before, however Hayley and Em’s communication and organisation couldn’t have been better and we felt so relieved to be in such capable hands with literally nothing to worry about! Thank you both so much for the most amazing and beautiful day xxx

Just a little note to say how much we appreciated your help organising our wedding. Nothing was a problem and you really did create our perfect day. It was lovely to have your warmth and energy. We miss you!! We hope you and Alix (My husband who worked on this wedding too) can have a lovely evening out together on us.

Thanks again Pip and Jake xxx

Dear Emma and Alix

I know you are a champion emailer but I do want to put pen to paper to thank you for the wonderful job you did planning Pip and Jake’s wedding. Thanks to the efficiency of you and your FAB team – Hayley Josie, other Emma and all and the generosity of Pip and jake I was able to enjoy the role as “Mother of the Bride” to the hilt with NO stress. I hope when your children marry one day that you have a panner as lovely as you.

Warm wishes Susan and Cyril (The Bride’s parents)


I just wanted to send a personal thank you and acknowledgement for your  role in making Jake and Pips wedding a very special day. I find its not often that I become involved in a major event that I cannot reflect back on it and not have a few things that I would change or improve on.  In the case of Jake and Pips wedding I would not change a thing and frankly cannot raise a single item that could be improved upon.

I want to congratulate you and your team for your kindness, thoughtfulness, professionalism, skill and your ability to over deliver on all aspects on the day. I am well aware of what it takes to achieve customer satisfaction and you certainly did this.

I wish you well with your business, I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone I come across looking to plan their wedding and I would be delighted to provide a reference for you at any time in the future if you required it.

Kind Regards Robin (Father of the Groom)

Thank you so much Emma! We had such an amazing time! It was everything we hoped for and we couldn’t have asked for better.

Hi Emma

Congratulations on running such a successful Wedding.  Everything went perfectly – we felt that it was a particularly special day – Christov was brilliant , the music great , speeches we very honest and intimate , the Bride spectacular and no hitches anywhere. 143 people all were very happy.  I would like to go back and play the whole thing again in slow motion as the day went so quickly – and didn’t get a proper chance to appreciate all the finery of the day. So many nice touches.  The Venue was great – Gustavs when the sun came out was really warm and loverly , the food over this period very good. The conversion of the “shopping Mall” into a reception area was completed seamlessly. The desert bar hugely impressive . Terry did a great job with the sound.

Your positive spirit throughout the whole preparation period set a tone which carried through to the day – melted away tension, and held everyone together as a seamless team. A joyful day. We are very appreciative and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your services.

Thank you John (Bride’s father).

Dear Emma

Hi Emma

A special thank you to you for everything that you did for us in the lead up to and day of our wedding.  You really did help us pull together the most special day of our lives.  You remained unfailingly positive, despite a few weather complications and pushed for us to get what we really wanted from our wedding day.

Nothing seemed to be too much trouble at any stage along our wedding journey.  You were always approachable and quick to respond so that we were never left wondering.

It was obvious that you had everything so firmly under control, which meant that both us and our families could relax and enjoy our day.

I would absolutely recommend that people use your services.  It has been a pleasure working with you and we truly appreciate everything you have done for us. Love Mr and Mrs A
