Special day for Erin in stunning Hunter Valley

HAVING helped brides and grooms-to-be plan their perfect day for over nine years, Event Manager Erin Kemmis had a head start on most brides when it came to planning her own wedding.

She tied the knot earlier this year in the stunning Hunter Valley with the ceremony, followed by an intimate reception for 70, all at one location – a vineyard.

“We chose our venue for the same reasons many of my clients choose my venue – Ryde-Parramatta Golf Club – the availability of ceremony, reception, as well as an array of gorgeous photo opportunities – all on site,” said Erin.

“Every bride wants their day to be beautiful – but without the stress of changing locations.’

So what other tips does an award-winning Event Manager suggest for the perfect day?

“Schedule more time than you think you need – always. Learn to delegate – that was a tough one for me! And focus on what is really important to you both. It’s easy to get swept away by flashy images, but everyone has a budget to work within – you can always achieve the look you’re after, if you’re clever about how you use that budget,” she revealed.

It appears Erin thrives on the challenge of helping her clients bring their dream day to fruition, evidenced by the fve star Easy Weddings and Facebook reviews.

Thinking outside the box is part of the reason Erin and her team at Ryde-Parramatta Golf Club have established such a solid reputation for weddings and events, without sacrificing quality and personal attention.
