LOVE NOTES

Being a part of a couples special day has always been an absolute honour. I feel so grateful to each and every couple I get the pleasure of working with. The journey towards their wedding day is an exciting one, and it is a true privilege to then be present at this intimate occasion. I have made many new friendships along the way, and it is always so touching to receive these letters of gratitude. It reminds me why I love what I do so much!

Dear Sophia, We cannot thank you enough! We so appreciate the big commitment, extra effort and creativity that made our day that much more special, especially with all the little touches you added. You did such an amazing job turning my theme and ideas into reality and much more! You were simply amazing to work with, so involved, organised, relaxed and have a very special talent for all things pretty. Thanks for creating many memories for us to look back on for many years to come.

If you want to have the perfect wedding minus all the hassle look no further than Sophia Hoadley at My Waiheke. She has an impeccable eye for detail, natural creative flair and an unparalleled knowledge of Waiheke Island and its vendors. Sophia is kind, caring and truly wants to get to know you as a couple to properly interpret your vision for the big day. We had Sophia coordinate not only our wedding day/night but a pre-lunch for 80+ guests. Undoubtedly these events would not have flowed as smoothly - and looked so drop dead gorgeous! - had she not been involved. Sophia is a true professional but also extremely friendly and it’s because of her faultless work we were able to relax to enjoy the most perfect day of our lives. Thank you Sophia.

THANK YOU !!! It was awesome and amazing and we both were completely thrilled with how it all came together... And kind of amazed! The decor and setting up of everything was just incredible and so very beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for more... It was just perfect! We would highly recommend anyone wanting a wedding on Waiheke to have you guys on hand as it was just so reassuring having all the details sorted!

THANK YOU again for doing such an amazing job - you really were such a big part of why the day was such a perfect success! So many people have commented on the decorations, you really got exactly what I described, and I’m glad I went with your suggestion re the lace etc on the tables - they looked gorgeous!

Thank you so much to you and your team for styling our beautiful wedding. You did an incredible job and we were just blown away by how it all came together. We really can’t thank you enough! The sweetheart table, the candy buffet, photo table...everything looked amazing! But our absolute favourite part was the ceremony with the arch and Queen Anne suite. We just love what you do!!

My wife and I booked Sophia to help organise our wedding on Waiheke and it was without question of a doubt the best decision we ever made. Sophia and her team are super friendly, incredibly talented; while maintaining a perfect balance of relaxed professionalism. Her attention to detail and styling were absolutely amazing, and she was able to create exactly what we had envisaged. Our day was beyond perfect... and a huge part of that was due to Sophia and her team. Nothing was too difficult for them. Thank you SO much for your work, It helped us create the day we have both always dreamed of... One which we will always cherish. To anyone trying to decide whether to use a wedding planner, call Sophia, you will not be disappointed.

Over the past few years I have been fortunate and delighted to often work alongside Sophia in my role as a Celebrant. I have seen first-hand that her planning is meticulous. Her support constant. Her suggestions are inspiring. She is a confident, sincere and experienced wedding planner. Guests have commented to me that her attention to detail is unique and I often hear from bridal parties after the wedding that without her wonderful support they would not have had such a memorable, stress free and magical day.
