Dear Emma

We wanted to thank you again for everything you did to make our wedding such an amazing day. Everything went perfectly and we are so appreciative of everything you did behind the scenes. All our friends and family were blown away and it will truly be a day to never forget! We hope you are getting some well deserved rest now that wedding season is winding down. 

With lots of love Sabine and Edward

Dear Em

How fortunate were we to have you there throughout this process, helping us over the hurdles and getting us to the finish line. The day, the venue, the styling the food, the service, and the music, was just as I had envisaged and as Sabine and Edward had hoped for. The atmosphere of the entire wedding was all we had all hoped for. As you say, to see so many of all ages and all nationalities still on the dance floor dancing around Edward and Sabine at the end of the night was pretty special. To bring together a collection of people from Edward and Sabine’s life. Throw them into a tipi on a hillside and hope it all worked out was always going to have an interesting vibe, but I think what I enjoyed the most was the positive energy that the evening had and a real sense of joy and happiness. The whole evening ran like clockwork and to be only 5 minutes out at the end was extraordinary.

Em your energy over the last few days was second to none. Several guests with their various health and age issues all felt very included, considered and cared for, thanks to you. You were always consultative and kept me appraised of any issues or potential issues. I received so many lovely comments about you and thank you for your attention to our guests. I hope you have a chance to relax and gather some more of that extraordinary energy  for the next occasion and the next fortunate  people to engage you.

Em, I’ve loved working with you and look forward to another occasion when I can do so again.

Best wishes,
Julia (Mother of the Groom)

If you are reading this and are looking for a wedding planner, look no further! Emma is simply the best! 
We live in the UK and took 18 months to plan our wedding in Queenstown. We looked at lots of wedding planners in the South Island, but from the moment we spoke to Emma, it was obvious she was the one for us. Planning a wedding overseas is hard work but everything with Emma was so easy. Emma was with us every step of the way: through initial bookings, grand plans and changing venues, to finding amazing suppliers, great providers and keeping us on track with payments to match our budget. 
Emma was everything we wanted and needed in a wedding planner. She has a breadth of knowledge of excellent venues and suppliers across the south island. We had a fantastic photographer, beautiful flowers, delicious cake and an awesome band. The venue was perfect for us.
In the days before the wedding Emma was there for us and rolled with the punches when last minute changes were needed. She set the venue up and was on hand throughout the day to make sure everything ran smoothly. It was all so well planned it went without a hitch. We suspect she even arranged for the perfect weather on the day! All our guests commented on how efficient, professional she was, and above all, so warm and welcoming. 
We can’t recommend Emma highly enough and we owe her a huge THANK YOU for helping us have our dream wedding.

Thank you to Emma for teaming up her connections to organise an unforgettable and stunning wedding for us that was absolutely far beyond our expectation. Being a wedding planner is not just about getting a venue booked and guests fed as there are other tiny things that do make huge difference in this special occasion. Emma has got what it takes to come up with lots of new ideas and foreseeing problems from all angles. Her expertise and experience have been very useful throughout the whole event. A big Like for you!

Hanmer Springs September 2017

Emma was a Godsend for my wedding. Six months counting down to the day, we were going through an emotional time having recently lost my Dad. Planning for the most important day of my life was hard enough without the family challenges we were now facing. Emma took it all in her stride with humility and tact, using her polished skill set: Managing all the planning, contact with suppliers, facilitating all admin booking tasks, maintaining our cashflow ensuring we got the very best within our budget requirements.

On the day Emma was the ultimate wedding planner of the silver screen, going over and above with a tight timeframe to collect the groomsman’s forgotten shoes which were left behind in Christchurch when we were already at our destination Hanmer Springs!  It was such an overwhelming relief to know I could trust Emma to follow through! The day was perfect and guests commented on Emma’s efficiency and how smooth it ran and how relaxing and enjoyable the event was – many thanks to Emma Newman Weddings, she was a magician and made the entire process seamless and a joy.

Based on my experience I would tell any bride a Planner is essential and not hesitate to recommend Emma’s professional service to remove all stresses associated with wedding planning.

Thank you for gift of your wonderful service Em”   – Holley
