NATASHA & LYN TERN
Choosing a wedding planner was arguably the most important decision that I made during the wedding planning process. My husband and I were planning a Sydney wedding from Perth, whilst also travelling for work extensively for the duration of our engagement. I was looking for someone whom I could trust to take our vision and make it happen without my needing to be excessively involved. I contacted five planners, interviewed three and ultimately chose Bells N Whistles. I was enormously impressed with Jen on our first meeting – her passion for weddings was evident, and her boundless creativity was tempered with common sense. I felt that I could trust her to create something that we would love, instead of a cookie-cutter wedding.
Over the next ten months, Jen and her team were a godsend. They put up with our erratic travel schedules; I lost track of how many appointments they made which I then had to cancel or reschedule. They revised briefs and quotes, and generally guided us through the seemingly endless number of decisions that need to be made for a wedding. I loved that BNW always gave us options with different price points.
My general view is that when you have a job to do that you lack the necessary skills for, you
hire a professional then get out their way. We did this with JK&Co.and in return, they delivered
a wedding that completely blew us away. My husband and I both had so many guests tell us
that they had never had so much fun at a wedding.
The hotel manager greeted us personally at breakfast the next morning and told us that she
had never seen the ballroom so beautifully decorated before – quite the compliment from a
five star hotel. Most importantly, Jen and her team were always friendly and patient and easy
to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend Jen and Jennifer Kennedy & Co. to anyone looking
for a professional to take away the stress of wedding planning and logistics.
