WEDDINGS, PARTIES, ANYTHING. . . to turn ANY of your events into an absolute ball, all YOU have to do is give us a call!

Hi my name is Melissa Fulloon I’m 27 years old and was born and raised in Gladstone. I am currently studying to become an International Events and Wedding Planning Professional (IEWP).

One of my biggest passions apart from my daughter is organising weddings, parties or any other functions no matter the occasion or size.

I thrive on having the opportunity to make someone’s dreams come true while being able to watch everything come together, from the small things like paperwork to the polishing of glassware to the large things like flowers and decorations. I wish to make sure all of my clients can enjoy the journey while relaxed, stress free and not a worry in sight. I’m assured both you and your guests will remember the event for years to come.

I have always had the hospitality industry apart of my life from the start of high school (1998), until recently when I had my daughter in 2011. After leaving school I did my Certificate 3 in Business Administration traineeship (2005/2006), in which then moved into working as a Receptionist / Duty Manager in local Hotels & Motels. This is where I realised I loved the work I did, so began studying my Diploma in Hospitality Management. During this time I become a Function Co-ordinator and Duty Manager of one of the largest apartment complex’s in Gladstone.

My entire list of employer’s found me to be extremely reliable, dedicated, focused, and motivated with outstanding organisational skills. While having a very honest and professional manner, I’m always smiling and friendly so people find me very easy to talk to. I always treat the company I work for as if it was my own giving 120% which I now look forward to doing with each and every one of my future clients, as their happiness, needs and desires are of the utmost importance to me which I will strive to achieve.

Over the past 13 years I’ve had the pleasure in helping bring together some wonderful events from birthday parties to corporate events and even weddings.

While working as Office Manager in 2009 I was contacted by a client requesting to hold her daughters 21st Birthday Party at our Motel. This is where I was in my element and allowed my passion to really shine through. This allowed me to arrange and organise all the elements from the smallest to the biggest details that were required to make this night one that many would remember. Having only email and telephone contact with the client as she lived in Perth, Western Australia, this required me to send all relevant information, updates, request of meal and drink choices, napkin styles and colours etc, confirmations and when specific elements were arranged. Being able to see the event unfold from paper to reality it made me so proud and honoured. Having wonderful staff members working alongside me, communicating so well together made the night everything that the client had imagined.

Here is a letter of thanks in which I received from the clients.

“25th February 2009

Dear Melissa,

I would like to thank you for all your help with organization of Sherree’s 21st in January of this year. As you can appreciate, trying to organize a function in Queensland from Perth is hard enough at the best of time, but thanks to your help all of the problems that may have occurred were alleviated.

The venue was fantastic and having the accommodation there made it very easy for the 5 of us coming from Perth and also for the rest of our guests from around Queensland. I was happy that I has done a trip across in November to meet with you before the function in January and was very impressed with the help and information I received during that trip.

The day of the function went very smoothly and the venue was set up exactly how we wanted it. I found that there was very little I had to so on the day, which made visiting with all of our family and friends so much more enjoyable as I didn’t have to worry about the venue looking the way we wanted it to. Sherree was absolutely wrapped with the whole night and had a wonderful time, all of our guest commented on how amazing the venue looked. The staff working our function were great, absolutely everything on the night ran very smoothly and Nole, Sherree and myself were extremely impressed.

Once again Melissa I would really like to thank you for all of your time and effort you put into helping make Sherree’s 21st such a success, and I wish you success with future functions.

Regards,”
