the best wedding vendors in Newcastle + the Hunter Valley
plus a few more
Assembling a crack team of wedding professionals can be tough if you don't know where to look. And even once you find someone who does incredible work, what if they're a jerk to deal with, or don't write back to your emails for a week?

These are the best of the best. They're never going to give you up, or let you down. Never gunna run around and desert you.

stylists

If you're looking for a stylist, The Wedding Designer are hard to beat. TWD handle styling, hire, graphic design and florals all under the one roof. Their warehouse is basically a dream come true for couples planning a wedding. They have everything you could possibly want - and if not they can probably make it anyway.

The Wedding Designer

I've also had the pleasure of working on several weddings with Crab Apple Vintage, which have all been amazing.

celebrants

Jacie Whitfield - Jacie prepares incredibly detailed, personal ceremonies for her couples. I've never been so disappointed when a ceremony actually ended.

Sassy Celebrants - a collective of celebrants based in Newcastle. Personally I've had the most experience with Kez & Jules.

Victoria Langham - consistently provides a friendly & enthusiastic ceremony.

Ben Ager - based in Sydney but willing to travel, he has an excellent knack for making all of your guests feel included.

Rosie Beaton - also Sydney based. Awesome ceremonies with tons of personality :)

videographers

If you're adding a videographer, it's a huge benefit if they work in a similar style to myself. It's hard to shoot candid frames if the couple are constantly being posed. The teams below are a dream to work with -

I Heart Productions
Morelife
Design Patrol
La Lune

florists

Novocastrian couples are spoiled for choice. My go-to's are :

Two Wild Hands
oh fleur
little wren flowers
The Wedding Designer

All of these florists work absolute magic.

hair + makeup

For a team who can handle both, you can't go wrong with Chic Artistry

For a standalone MUA, Ilona Kish is the best you can get.

DJ

If you are having a DJ at your wedding, hire XYDJ. No question. So much better than the competition they're not even in the same category.
