who am i

My name is Nicolle. I am based in Rotorua however work alongside venues in Auckland -Rotorua & wider areas.

With almost 6 years in the industry - I think it is fair to say that I know my way around a Wedding.

With experience in hotels, backyards, blank canvas venues & fully serviced venues over the past almost 10 years - you could say I have seen it all.. the great part about this industry is that it is ever evolving and changing - meaning, that will never be the case! I love working with clients throughout their wedding planning journey - it is such an exciting and overwhelming stage of life and it certainly rewarding to be able to share the experience, to offer a shoulder to lean on aswell as offering advice and suggestions throughout the process.

what do i do?

I offer wedding planning & support to venues aswell as limited wedding planning services.


Often as a venue, it can be easy to loose sight of the importance of wedding business. It is such a crucial and large part of the events industry - but as a wedding is ‘more work’, ‘more admin’, ‘more personal’ than a corporate event - this side of the business can often be neglected, not as profitable and not as efficient as it could be.

That’s where I come in.

Every venue is different - owners and managers have different ways of structuring and managing their business so I offer services to meet their expectations.


My focus is looking after the couples that have secured the venues in which I manage which leaves limited dates available to offer my on-site wedding planning services.

However, a lot of couples find it very helpful to utilise my ’virtual planning services’ which is where we plan the event together.

I am able to manage all of your suppliers, budgets, runsheets and details for the day to ensure you are on the correct path & have everything in place before your special day so you can walk into it stress-free!

The most successful event is the one that achieves your goals & exceeds your expectations
Thank you Nicolle - you made our big day a breeze, completely stress-free and assisted with making it one extremely special day to remember for not only us but our 210 guests too!
From the start and all the way through Nicolle was really helpful, motivated & provided many useful ideas, suggestions & solutions via regular communication of emails & phone calls at all hours of day! Nicolle’s services towards our Wedding was perfect as we both also run a full-time business.
Overall Nicolle is very passionate about her work and ensures her clients are happy and content with how their big day or event comes together from start to finish.

We can not thank you enough Nicolle - Thornton & Gayle
