"... Val came up with good ideas, understood the budget I had and impressed me with her ideas to get the most out of it.."
"I was living in Melbourne and getting married in New Zealand. I decided I wanted the venue decorated so that there would be no stress on the day for myself, my family or my friends with arranging the venue decorations prior to or on the day. I looked on the internet and found Val. While I was in New Zealand I arranged an appointment to meet. Val was so easy to deal with, was on the same page with me with what I was looking for, she didn’t try to take me down avenues I didn’t want to go and got a quote back to me promptly. I left the first meeting with a good gut feeling about Val.
Throughout the process I appreciated the way Val came up with good ideas, understood the budget I had and impressed me with her ideas to get the most out of it. As I was in Melbourne, Val emailed me pictures of how things could look to help me better understand what I was getting.
Val showed up the day before the wedding to set everything up and also came on the day to make sure that everything was perfect - not just her work but also that everyone else’s was squared away.
Val hung black curtaining along walls which framed the hangar beautifully and lit the inside with purple and blue accent lighting (the colours of my bridal party). She put up a beautiful fairy light wall behind the bridal table and hung fairy lights and umbrellas outside the hangar as a garden bar area. The whole area looked perfect. My brother in law, who owns the hangar, had people come up to him all night telling him they loved his new garden bar! It looked awesome and has got him thinking. (see my photos)
Val made me feel totally at ease throughout process. She was a pleasure to deal with and I definitely got value for money. I felt reassured that she would do everything possible to make sure I was happy with the venue and her service so I could have (and did have) a fantastic day. Thanks Val."

The lights ... were absolutely stunning and gave us the warm, romantic feeling we wanted. They .... made me feel like such a princess"
"For my wedding day I wanted some really outstanding fairy light lighting. I contacted Val as I had got her card from a wedding expo. When I told the venue I was using Clever Events they were happy as Val has done a lot of workat the venue. When deciding what I wanted Val showed me a lot of different pictures and gave me ideas of what I could use to get the atmosphere I was after.
What I liked about working with Val is that she was really low maintenance, she didn’t need much direction and I didn’t need to go to the venue to see what she was doing. Once we had agreed what the room would look like I didn’t have to ask Val to do anything, she just did it herself – which was refreshing as many of the people I worked with I had to chase up constantly. Val was the opposite; she took charge which was great.
The lights Val put up were absolutely stunning and gave us the warm, romantic feeling we wanted. They just made my day and made me feel like such a princess. We got some beautiful photos of our first dance with the lights. "
