The moment we met Donna we knew we were in good hands, and our incredible wedding day was proof of that! So many guests have told us that our wedding at the surf club made them fall in love with Straddie, I can’t think of a better compliment than that. Cannot recommend Donna, Tara and the team highly enough. They made the wedding planning process fun and stress-free; knowing that they were there on the island doing the heavy lifting was so reassuring, and gave me time to focus on other things, like spending time with family and friends that had travelled to be there, rather than stressing about tiny details. I knew they had it taken care of. It was just the best day ever and truly memorable. Thanks for your warmth, style, local knowledge, attention to detail, and so much more!

Donna and her amazing team created the most memorable wedding day for us. From our initial contact with Donna she made it so stress free and always assured us that it would be exactly what we wanted, and she did not fail in doing this. We had a vision of what we wanted and the team pulled it together just as we had envisaged. Although we did not see the full setup till our wedding day we were not disappointed. It was perfect. We have no hesitation in recommending Stradbroke Island Events for anyone wanting a beautiful day to remember. The amount of guests that commented on “the best wedding they had ever been to” just blew us away and we credit that to Donna and her beautiful team. Thank you once again.

We had Donna and her team to help plan, design our very special day. Donna did more than I ever imagined it would look like – was absolutely stunning. Donna makes it look easy and she puts you at ease. Thank you so very much for making our day perfect.

My husband and I were married last weekend October 14th 2017. Donna and her team at Stradbroke island events were simply amazing, so easy to work with and they helped to make our wedding day magical. Donna was pretty much our wedding planner not just the stylist as she liaised with caterers and entertainment and guided us through the process of wedding planning like the professional she truly is.
We would recommend Donna and her services to anyone planning a Straddie wedding. Sending so much love to this special lady and her amazing team. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping turn our dream wedding into a reality (even in the crazy weather conditions – LOL!) Emma and Danny xoxo

I would also especially like to mention Jacqui – she was so helpful and kind, many people commented on how lovely she was to have around.

The whole day was exactly as I had hoped it would be and all your efforts are much appreciated.

Thanks so much!!!

Hey Donna,

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to send this email through to you. I have been meaning to send it since the wedding.

I just wanted to say thank you so so much to you and all of your team for making our day just perfect! We absolutely loved it and it was honestly the best day of my life and such a large part of it was from all the hard work from you guys. You were all an absolute pleasure to deal with and I would have been lost without you!! All your staff were amazing!

So many people have commented on the set up and how beautiful it was (someone said to me even the bin was pretty!!!) It suited Glen and I to a tee and we wouldn’t have changed a thing. I honestly can’t thank you enough and I will recommend you guys where ever I can.

Thank you again, you are a bloody gem!

Rebecca & Glen

Where to start…

I have been meaning to write this email to you for ages… To THANK YOU for creating such a beautiful peaceful happy colourful perfect space for our ceremony and reception. The day was fantastic from start to finish. So many of our guests commented on the gorgeous setup at the beach, and all the fine little details at the reception. You took our ideas and made them come to life. I couldn’t have asked for anything better if I’d tried. We forgot to ask to use the fire pit outside, because we were too busy chatting, using the Photo Booth, dancing and eating Gordon’s delicious food to realise until later in the night!

Also a brilliant thank you for organising the flowers for me to make our bridal bouquets. It was SO much fun, being up on the balcony with my girls playing at creations whilst getting ready, was a fabulous relaxing activity to do with them.

Thankyou for your time and energy and fantastic suggestions for setting up our great day over the past many months. Your support was greatly appreciated whilst being so far away. The team you work with on Straddie are fabulous and I wish you all the very best for your future Wedding and Events.

Here’s a couple of pics if you would like to see, including one of my favourite during our dance together as Mr & Mrs Shirvington 🙂
