Emma helped plan our wedding, which took place in November 2008. As we live in the UK, her role was much more than helping: she acted for us in planning, sourcing suppliers and services, and in the indefinable but so important matter: taste and style. She had to make decisions which reflected what we would have wanted had we been there ourselves.
How did she do? We had a stunningly successful day. The logistics were flawless, all the bits and pieces came together effortlessly (or so it seemed), and we and our guests (who had come from across NZ, from the UK and even from Afghanistan) had time to really enjoy the day.
None of this is easy. Emma is a tireless, methodical organiser. She uses her own contacts and network on your behalf effectively and ethically, and she understands the importance of getting the atmosphere as well as the details right. Emma has superb taste, and an ability to genuinely support the bridal couple without being intrusive or obvious as she does so.
We count ourselves fortunate to have had her help for our wedding. We have some cloudless, poetic memories of the day – made possible because the hard work had been done by Emma. If you want a great wedding day in Christchurch, you’d be silly not to start with Emma Newman.
With Many Thanks
