Kia ora, I’m Alex

Im the planner, thinker and doer behind Inspired Event Co.

I’ve always loved all things organization and planning – my friends used to tease me in high school for needing not one, but two diaries to plan my days. I’ve also always been creative, and after school I went to Victoria University, and completed a Bachelor of Arts in Film Production and Creative Writing.

I spent a couple years as a retail manager, loving both the customer service, and the operational management. I wanted to marry that with my creative skills, story-telling, and dreaming. My combined skills in these two areas confirmed for me that my dream job was event planning, and I completed an Advanced Diploma in Wedding and Event planning from the New Zealand Academy of Wedding and Event Planning.

I’ve been in the event industry for over seven years. I am supremely organized, creative, goal-orientated, and above all, passionate. My experience is broad and varied, ranging from weddings, to industry conferences, to art shows, to large-scale fundraising events, and even to half marathons! I can craft you a budget, draw you a floorplan, write up your runsheet and negotiate with your vendors. I can help with design, entertainment and social media, and appear beside you on the day with the safety pin you didn’t know you’d need.

Your passion for your event becomes my passion. Let’s grab a coffee, and talk about how I can inspire you, guide you, and above all help you create an event that feels like you.

Wonderful to see the Art Deco Festival in Napier vibrant again this weekend.
Such a special event in the place I grew up, and so cool to see its resurgence after Cyclone Gabrielle and covid.

🎶 Food, glorious food 🎶
Food at your event is about so much more than making sure people don’t get hungry.
Food can set the formality, the pace and the atmosphere.
Food is sensory, emotive, and talking point and a joyous shared experience.
I love small plates and nibbles like these delcious @thefoodlabnz ones. I can never decide what to order, so I love a chance to try everything in an informal setting, and chat about fave dishes with other party goers.

Alex made planning our wedding so much less stressful and overwhelming. We came to her when we had no idea where to start or what we wanted. She helped set us up with a budget, helped us work out what we needed to organise first, what our options were, and sorted out our catering. Her creative ideas, taste, and advice were impeccable and she was kind and professional throughout, no matter how many questions we fired her way. We were so happy with our wedding day and owe a lot of that to Alex’s help. We also used her gorgeous green wall in our reception area behind our head table. The wall looked beautiful in person and in our photos and really pulled the look of our reception area together.

Inspired Events was an inspired choice to help plan our 60th birthday party. Alex took all the stress out of planning, leaving us to just enjoy ourselves. Our caterer said she’d never seen such a well planned party!
