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

Years in the industry have made it obvious to me who the best of the best are. You can't go wrong with any of the fine businesses listed below.

stylists

If you're looking for a stylist, The Wedding Designer are unbeatable. TWD handle styling, hire, graphic design and florals all under the one roof. They have everything you could possibly want, and if not they can make it anyway.

The Wedding Designer

celebrants

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

Sassy Celebrants - a collective of celebrants based around Newcastle. I've had the most experience with Kez, Monty, Amy & Jules.

Julie Muir - I could listen to Julie read the phone book. Best accent ever and a lovely person as well.

Ben Ager - based in Sydney, he has a knack for making all of your guests feel included.

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

Of all the vendors at a wedding, photographers and videographers work closest together - literally.

The teams listed below are professionals who produce quality work and blend in seamlessly.

Ilona Kish is the best standalone MUA you can get. I also love working with Kimidoll.

Michelle Jackson is my pick for hair.

DJ

For Newcastle & Hunter Valley, Silent Shout are the way to go.

For Sydney + Southern Highlands, XYDJ are the absolute best.
