About Kirsty (The Head Honcho)
I fell in love with the tropical beauty and lifestyle of Far North Queensland and following several visits my hubby and I made it our home almost 7 years ago. In that time we have travelled the world, married and recently welcomed a bouncing baby boy into our fledging family.
When presented an opportunity to work with Claudette over 3 years ago I jumped at the chance. I love a good Wedding (who doesn’t), but what I love more is working with couples to form and deliver their dream day!
I understand the importance and need for a wedding planner, as we were married overseas, I’m sure if I didn’t have her, there would of been some serious meltdowns but knowing she was there to take care of all the little and big things really put my mind at ease.
When not planning the perfect wedding, I love making the most of the tropical lifestyle, places, food and hospitality. I’m a passionate organiser (is that normal?!?) and enjoy interior decorating and design which I bring to wedding planning.
About Claudette (Founder and Assistant Planner)
I am one of those freaks of nature who adore being organized. I truly love filing (crazy, I know) and like everything to be scheduled (something you will see when you check out my famous run sheets). My love affair with organization is slightly hindered by my two boys under two who are determined to create wonderful chaos. Craft days are a regular at my house and I am convinced all kinds of glue and staple guns are the best things ever invented.
When I am not locked away in my office working away at my gorgeous pineapple yellow desk, I am in the kitchen cooking/attempting to bake, out for a walk, or chasing the boys. I love travelling (who doesn’t), snow skiing, coffee dates, and long lunches. I am from Detroit, USA (home to cars and the best music ever – Motown) and came for a visit to Cairns after getting my Bachelor’s of Science in Tourism and Event Management from University of Florida. I fell in love with the town and then eight days later, fell for an Australian and have called Cairns home ever since!
After finding out that we are due to welcome our third child (under three) in January, I decided to step aside and have the beautiful and immensely talented Kirsty take over the reigns of Cairns Wedding Planner. In short, she is the only person in the world I trust to take over my first baby and am confident she will exceed the expectations of all of her clientele!
