Growing up I always knew a "regular job" was not in the cards for me. I had a wild imagination and a knack for creativity. When I was about 12 the movie the Wedding Planner with Jennifer Lopez came out. I know what your thinking "That hardly reflects the reality of the event industry", but in a way it does. I loved watching that movie because of the few parts that focused on her career.
1. Being Prepared - her emergency kit, where she had medications, make up, wipes, everything and anything you may need.
2. Assisting clients in visualizing how everything will come together, describing each and every detail.
3. Accompanying the client in selecting details that go nicely together and with the theme or style of the event.
I told my family that this was the career for me. They weren't thrilled with my choice, and urged me to do something more "realistic." I went to College, I had administrative jobs, and in the end at age 25 it all came back to Event & Wedding planning. I now have experience in catering and marketing, have held the Wedding Coordinator position at a hotel, volunteered 50 hours of time in the wedding industry specifically, have worked as an event coordinator at a spa and enrolled myself in the QC Event & Wedding Planning course.

Here I am,working towards my dream, so I can help you work towards yours!

Testimonials

"I had the privilege of working with Amanda at the 1st Annual Perth Parkside Wedding Show, which she designed and managed. Amanda initially scouted and contacted me to include me in her show, and throughout the process, we worked together with Ashton Station Bridal to put together a very unique and elegant fashion show which included live runway music. The show as a whole had a beautiful, lush look, and everything ran very smoothly – a great success. She also went above and beyond to ensure that we were taken care of and had everything we needed. In addition, Amanda is always very cheerful and positive, even under pressure – making her an absolute pleasure to work with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Amanda for any future endeavors. She is a hard worker, with a great eye for design and detail…and does everything with a smile."

“I have worked with Amanda on numerous occasions, most often as a vendor at
wedding and bridal shows that she has overseen. These are complex events with a lot of demands placed on organizers by vendors and attendees before and during the show. I love working with her as she is a pro-active problem solver who sees to it that every detail is taken care of ahead of time and the demands of each vendor are met in a timely manner. I know that every other vendor at these shows would agree that any event that is run by Amanda is a pleasure to take part in and to attend. On top of all of that, Amanda’s most engaging trait is that she is fun and easy to work with—she is a people-person. I have been in this business for over 25 years and personal attention trumps everything else; when she is dealing with you, your concerns are her concerns.”

"The following is a letter of recommendation for the exceptional services provided by Amanda Baker as our Wedding Coordinator for the Best Western Plus Perth before and during our wedding day. A wedding should be known as the most memorable time of two people’s lives, and for us on August 3rd, 2013 it was, with the help and guidance of Amanda Baker. Amanda took the time and effort to relinquish every detail that made this day so special for us. Her organizational skills were impeccable, which took a lot of pressure and stress off the groom and I when there were numerous other matters to be tended to. Amanda took the time to meet with us, respond to our e-mails and phone calls on numerous occasions before the wedding, and making herself available. The day of our wedding, she took the time to make sure that every detail was presented in the most perfect way and in no way could we have ever asked for a better day. I would highly recommend using Amanda as a wedding planner and we are so happy that she was there to help us prepare for one of the most cherished days of both of our lives."
