"I would highly recommend A Beautiful Occasion to any bride-to-be or party host. Their work is amazing! After only 1 consultation, they created exactly what I had dreamed of. The flowers and styling at the ceremony and reception, as well as our bouquets were just perfect. They also took care of organising the wedding stationary and gifts for our guests. Thank you again, I can't thank you guys enough."

Our photographer Thierry said he's never seen a room that looks so elegant and beautiful with a rustic touch to it. Many guests made comments saying it was the most beautifully decorated function room they had ever seen. We just wanted to say a huge thank you! The room was absolutely perfect. Loved the ceiling palings with the beautiful florals and our bouquets were just stunning!"

"Glenn and I would just like to thank you for the magnificent effort that you made to create such a magical wedding day for our daughter Clare and new son-in-law, Curtis. There was such a lovely ambiance to the afternoon, which was blessed with the attendance of many family and friends, the stunning weather, and beautifully styled location. Everything was just perfect!

The styling of the ceremony, terrace and reception room was just outstanding. We had so many lovely comments about these areas from family and friends and have many beautiful photos. I can hardly wait to see the photos that Bella has taken!

All of the flowers were just gorgeous, from the bouquets to the stunning arbour and the flower troughs, the flower balls on the terrace and all of the other flowers too! I loved the fireplace and the ladder over the bridal table. It was all just beautiful. The cake looked very attractive and thank you so much for taking notice of the way the flowers had been styled on that cake photo we gave you.

Finally, we would just like to thank you your professionalism. Every aspect of planning our afternoon and evening was made so easy by you both. Amy, I appreciated the friendly manner in which you replied to my emails and telephone calls and also your great suggestions. Nothing was too much trouble. We would have no hesitation in recommending “A Beautiful Occasion” to anyone in need of event styling and floral art.

It was a pleasure to have met you at the wedding expo at The Anchorage. I hope that our paths may cross again one day. Thank you again."

"Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for the brilliant job you guys did on our wedding this weekend.  The theming was absolutely stunning, beautifully elegant and not too over the top.  It was exactly what I had in mind.  Both the reception area and gazebo were just perfect and got a lot of great feedback from everyone. Thanks for the countless emails over the last year, you guys nailed everything and the end result was spot on.  We cannot thank you enough for a job so well done. We will definitely recommend you to anyone having an event in the area.  If you want a testimonial or anything as well, please let us know.  It's the least we can do for your help in making our wedding such a lovely and memorable occasion."
