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.

✨ Elevate your event with these styling tips! ✨

Define Your Theme: Start by choosing a theme or color palette that reflects the mood and style you want to convey. Whether it’s rustic chic, modern minimalist, or bohemian whimsy, a cohesive theme will tie your event together beautifully.

Focus on Key Elements: Identify key styling elements such as table settings, floral arrangements, and lighting. Paying attention to these details will add depth and visual interest to your event decor.

Mix Textures and Layers: Incorporate a variety of textures and layers to create visual depth and dimension. Mix and match fabrics, table linens, and decorative accents to add richness and sophistication to your decor.

Personalize with Details: Infuse your event with personal touches and meaningful details that reflect your personality and style. Whether it’s handwritten place cards, family heirlooms, or custom signage, these details will make your event feel truly special.

Consider the Venue: Take into account the style and ambiance of your venue when planning your event decor. Choose decor elements that complement the venue’s aesthetic and architecture to create a cohesive and harmonious look.

Balance and Symmetry: Strive for balance and symmetry in your event styling to create a visually pleasing arrangement. Distribute decor elements evenly throughout the space and pay attention to proportion and scale.

Don’t Forget the Details: Pay attention to the little details that can make a big impact, such as napkin folds, chair decor, and accent lighting. These small touches will elevate your event styling and leave a lasting impression on your guests.

Planning an event and not sure where to start? With so much to think about when planning an event, it may be overwhelming. Here are some things to think about when starting your event planning journey:

💫 Define Your Goals: What do you want to achieve with this event? Understanding your objectives will guide all your planning decisions.

💫 Set a Budget: Determine how much you’re willing to spend and allocate funds to different aspects of the event, such as venue, catering, and entertainment.

💫 Choose a Date and Venue: Select a date that works for your target audience and secure a venue that fits your event’s size, style, and location preferences.

💫 Create a Guest List: Decide who you want to invite and consider factors like space limitations and budget constraints when finalizing your guest list.

💫 Plan Your Timeline: Break down the planning process into manageable tasks and set deadlines to ensure everything gets done on time.

💫 Select Vendors: Research and hire vendors such as caterers, decorators, and entertainment providers who align with your event vision and budget.

💫 Consider Logistics: Think about transportation, accommodations, and any special requirements your guests may have to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Remember, it’s okay to ask for help along the way!

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!
