Experience & Passion
Ash has always been a creative soul and has strived at Art and Graphics growing up as a child. So much so that she originally wanted to be an interior designer, must have been her love for turning something drab into something fab. It wasn’t until she took charge of a surprise birthday party (she is a little bossy like that!) that she came into her element, working with a set budget and a goal she brought it to life. That’s when her family sat her down & gave her a different path to follow and boy was she glad she listened!
From there it went to working at a winery, that hosted the most amazing weddings. The flowers and the candlelight flickering among the wine barrels was something magical. To broaden the events space, she moved onto a more corporate role which was organising track days around Australia. Leathers and motorbikes were certainly not as glamorous as lace gowns she can assure you but she still had a blast going around the track on the back of a Ducati.
From there she was offered a position to be a wedding coordinator for a venue which was beautiful, she managed to grow the weddings by 100% in one year by understanding their couples and working out what we best for each of their needs and budget. She often used to get reprimanded by management for going “above and beyond” for each client as if she was “their” wedding coordinator and not there for the venues needs. That’s when she realised there was a gap between wedding planners and venue coordinators.
A year later with support and encouragement from her family, Champagne & Confetti was born. They haven't looked back since & can now honestly say they LOVE doing what they do!
Weddings and events aren’t a job to us, they're a passion and we’d love to share that passion with you!
