I'm here to help you turn your dream day into reality!


My name is Amy Throckmorton. I am an aspiring wedding planner and am hoping to begin my own business later this year.

My love of wedding planning stemmed from the planning of my own wedding in 2012. I loved the hours of planning, the creativity and trying to put our personalities into our big day so that it really was 'us'. Being such an organised person I had folders for everything and was enjoying the fact that I was getting a good system down for keeping track of all my wants and selections.

Like any wedding, I experienced my fair share of drama, including dress drama, but managed to solve all the issues by the time the day rolled around. I knew that I was in a good spot for the day and was confident there would be no stress.

I was wrong! It poured rain from the moment we woke up until our arrival at the Reception. It was all of this that really made it obvious to me that I had a knack for this planning thing. I had wet weather plans in place and even with guests pulling out on the day I managed to fill all the seats by the time we hit the reception! (Amazing what a mobile phone at the hairdressers can do!)

By the end of the day it hit me that this had been the best day of my life but it was the only one I would get! I wouldn't get to experience this again. This never left my thoughts while we were on our honeymoon and by the time I got home, I had enrolled myself in the Certificate of Wedding and Event Planning.

Now, here I am!
I am looking forward to starting my own business. I am determined to ensure that none of my couples have any stress on their big day and to help them turn their idea of the perfect day into a reality!


My future business will offer all aspects of the planning and styling of weddings. I will work with you, as a couple, to ensure that your 'big day' is exactly what you had hoped for, and a reflection of both of your personalities.

I have intentions of offering three different planning packages:

Full Planning Package
This will include every aspect of planning leading up to your wedding. I will be there with you every step of the way to help put your personalities into your 'big day'!
I will be there with you at fittings, help to select invitations, help select your flowers, find your dream wedding cars and even be there to taste test your cake! On the day I will ensure that everything I have organised runs perfectly. I will ensure that your wedding day is just as you expected and that everything runs perfectly to schedule.
For you this means that you get to do all the fun stuff, be involved as little or as much as you want to be and have the final say on every decision! Easy!

Partial Planning Package
This is the perfect package for the couple that has booked a few vendors, organised the reception location etc, but would like assistance leading up to a stress free wedding day!
I will step in as your wedding angel and sit down with you as a couple to talk through your wedding day 'vision'. I will gather details of your already made bookings, help to book other necessary vendors/services and ensure that any issues are handled before the big day comes around. I will confirm all of your bookings in the lead up to your wedding and be there on the day to ensure it is perfect!

On the Day Management Package
Perfect for the couple who has planned each aspect of their own wedding but would like someone to ensure it all runs together seamlessly on your big day!
I will meet with you around 1 month prior to your wedding to gather all the details of the day and to ensure that I know what you have planned for your perfect day. I will re-confirm all of your bookings and be the go to person on the day. I will ensure that set up runs to plan, ensure that all songs are correct and played at the right times as well as sorting out any little issues before you even notice them! A stress free day for you as well as family and friends.

I am also going to have available:

Hourly Consultations
These are also available to help out in areas that you need! If you are happy planning your own wedding but just get stuck on the little things then this is perfect for you. I can help with anything from the design of your invitation to planning a schedule for your big day. I can even accompany you to meetings with suppliers if you would like the experience of a professional.
