"...By choosing Suzanne for your special day, you can expect meticulous attention to detail, creative ideas in a friendly, relaxed and informal manner. Leaving you to enjoy the magical build up to your big day or celebration..."
I love celebrating! Always have. I was always the go to person to organise any type of event for friends and family. Starting out in the hotel industry in my early 20's, successfully arranging hundreds of weddings and parties fired my desire to create memorable experiences.
After five exhilarating years my career took me away from events and into Operations, managing a team in a time critical safety environment that demanded exceptional planning, organisational and management skills.
I took a career break from senior management, to have my two beautiful daughters. During this time as a mother at home, I realised I wanted to build my own dream and used the opportunity to explore my creative flair, whilst also keeping my business head busy organising fundraising events for a local charity. Acquiring ideas and valuable knowledge along the way on all aspects of the event planning process, venue sourcing and styling.
So, after a few years planning friends weddings and parties I decided it was time to to amalgamate my skills sets and create my long awaited event business. It was the natural progression back into the wedding industry, I had longed for for years.
Attention to detail is paramount to the perfect event and I am a notorious perfectionist through and through. Whatever you are celebrating, why worry about the details and let me guide you through the process and take the stress away. I will advise you in all aspects of planning your wedding or special occasion, from designing invitations, managing guest lists, to finding the right venue or caterer, providing venue styling and set up, or purely on the day co-ordination.
I can help, just ask....

A huge thanks to Suzanne Killalea of Ask Weddings and Events for planning my amazing 50th birthday party. I highly recommend her as an event planner as I didn't lift a finger, from sending out the invitations to the co-ordination on the evening! Special mention to Alan Killalea for setting up the music and lighting.

"We felt we just had to write and thank you for all your help organising our wedding. Without you the preparations would not have gone as smoothly as they did - you were a true asset.
We had a wonderful day and the hospitality we and our guests received was superb, could you please pass our thanks on to everyone involved in making it such a memorable day."
Thanks and kindest regards,
Jackie & Gary
"From our first contact with yourself, your professional, friendly, enthusiastic manner made us feel content that all our requirements would be catered for and that nothing, no matter how trivial would be too much bother, It was great to let someone else do all the worrying while we enjoyed ourselves.
The ceremony and reception rooms looked wonderful, especially the flowers and table settings. Clearly a lot of effort went into acheiving this for which we are very grateful. The disco D.J as recommended by yourself was a perfect choice, keeping the atmosphere bubbling throughout the evening, and the buffet was superb, many of our guests commented on the quality and quantity provided.
We can honestly say that thanks to you and the hotel staff, our day was just perfect exactly as we hoped. We would happily recommend you to anyone considering tying the knot."
