Wren and Rabbit styled my wedding ceremony and reception and it all looked amazing, everything I wanted and more. They are super flexible, easygoing, and talented, making it such a great process from start to finish. So glad I chose them for my special day. Thank you for making my wedding day look so magical!
Sarah & Dylan, March 2017
I can't thank you enough for the magic you created for us for our wedding! It was more amazing than we ever imagined! The atmosphere you created was so romantic and intimate. It was everything we ever wanted for our wedding. Words cannot express how talented you ladies are! The spaces you created felt like a dream or a beautiful fairytale. I know you went above and beyond to make this day so perfect for us, and we are so thankful to you!

Ahhh, weddings, who doesn’t love a wedding? Well frankly, many who are planning their own day-of-all-days often love it a lot less than they should. They get bogged down in details, talking to suppliers, sourcing the right venue, hiring equipment and trying to convince every person they’ve ever met to help them set up and pack down. The planning takes over, the fun disappears and the stress eating begins. That’s where we come in. We want to save you from covering all of your possessions in greasy, potato chip fingerprints.
We think your wedding should be a party you never forget, the day that launches a lifetime of companionship, joy and arguments about which cupboard you should keep the bowls in. Let us help you make it perfect – we will be your counsellors, your PAs and your roadies.
We can do your invites, arrange your flowers, decorate your venue, create running orders, contact every type of supplier imaginable and create spreadsheets like nobody’s business. We are great listeners, and even better organisers. We can do the work of 10 people, have fun while we’re doing it and we are ready to make your day truly magnificent!
Below is a list of the different services Wren & Rabbit offer to make your wedding dreams come true.
Wren & Rabbit want to be a part of your wedding, no matter how big or small. We understand that everyone is different, and every couple has their own needs and style. From grand ballroom affairs to cozy backyard barbeques to ethereal beachy bliss, we’ve got you covered. Have a read of our services below, and if we sound like your kinda people, shoot us an email or give us a call. We will create a customised quote just for you and your sweetie.
We will make your wedding gorgeous. GORGEOUS. That is a guarantee. This is pretty much our favourite thing in the world, and even though we haven't met you yet, we really want to work on your wedding. We are passionate about creating exciting, immersive events, and we will make your day our top priority.
So what does "styling" really mean? Well, in a nutshell, it's creating the look for your wedding. Every couple's taste is different, and every venue is different - to us, this isn't a challenge, it's an opportunity. We will work with you and your venue to make it look and feel just how you like. This could be as simple as flowers and candles, to photo walls, hanging floral installations, custom dyed tablecloths, custom lighting to creation of a fantasy wonderland - you name it, we've got you covered. The best way to explain styling is really to direct you to our Gallery - here you can see examples of what we've done in the past for other clients.
To break it down a bit further, here's a list of how we would work with you:
Check out our Gallery to see some examples of our past design and styling work and check out our Hire page for the items we currently have in stock for hire. We can also design your invitations, wedding website and anything else you want or need to make sure your wedding is the party of a lifetime.
You can also check out our Wren & Rabbit Pinterest, where we have put together a whole bunch of different style inspiration boards.
As a part of our styling expertise, we are passionate about flowers. Just nuts about them. We can create your bouquets, boutonniere, corsages, table arrangements, floral installations, garlands - you name it, we're on it. Our Gallery has stacks of photos of our past work.
So here's our shpiel that we deliver to every couple: weddings should be a wonderful, romantic, joyous occasion and the last thing you should be doing is worrying about whether your reception tablecloths have been ironed or if the band has arrived on time. Please, for the love of all that is adorable and fluffy, have someone help you run the day. We'd like to be those someones for you.
Weddings shouldn't be stressful, but they so often are. We want to remove that stress and run the day for you, so all you need to worry about is looking fabulous and getting to the aisle on time.
When Wren & Rabbit manage your wedding day for you, we will do our best to make things run like a really expensive watch that you might see on Antiques Roadshow that's still keeping perfect time 200 years after it was made (did we go too far with that analogy?). Whether it's ceremony, reception or both, we have got you covered. We will be there early, and manage the arrival of all of your vendors and suppliers, make sure your bridesmaids walk down the aisle on time, make sure the caterers know where to set up, make sure you have a comfy pair of shoes to change in to - you name it, we'll make it happen. Think of us as your highly organised fairy godmothers.
So how does this work? Well, we will meet with you a few months before your wedding to talk about the day and the role that Wren & Rabbit will play in it. We will then meet with you a couple of days before the wedding to make sure we’re all on the same page. At this point we will need your running order for the day which includes the important cues for the ceremony and reception and a list of your suppliers and delivery times. If possible we would like to come to your wedding rehearsal, watch your run-through, meet your celebrant and talk about any concerns you might have for the wedding.
On the actual day, we’ll show up early and stick around all day to greet suppliers, help set up and decorate and make sure everything at the venue is running smoothly. We’ll be available to you both via phone and face-to-face to troubleshoot any problems that might arise and make sure all those little details are seen to. We will make sure that the drinks are on ice, the music is cued at the right time, that the photographer has scoped out good spots for photos, and anything and everything else.
At the end of the day we will coordinate pack-down and make sure everything is squared away and ready for you or your suppliers to pick up.
As you can tell, this encompasses a lot! Every couple will need something different, so get in touch - we will grab a coffee and work out how we can tailor our service to make your day perfect.
We're not event experts for nothing. We've been 'round the block, we've seen what's what, and we're here to help you pick your wedding vendors. For most weddings this means venue, photographer, catering, cake, furniture/prop hire services and bands and DJs. For the more ambitious, this might mean tents and marquees, portaloos, dance floors, circus performers - the sky's the limit! We can simply give suggestions, or go the full nine yards and contact and organise all of your services.
Weddings are not the only service we provide. Read on for just a few of the other services we offer.
Proposals: have you met your one true love, the light of your life, the one who will help you raise your children/cats/pot plants? Do you need help asking that magnificent human specimen to sign a contract saying they’ll stick with you for the rest of their lives, even if you decide to take up the piano accordion? We are here to help plan the perfect proposal for you and your love, whether it be on a majestic mountain top at dusk, or via carefully choreographed tap dancing performance. We’re your wingmen, just give us a call.
Elopements: for those who aren’t really into this big, crazy wedding blow out idea but still want a special, romantic, intimate event. Elopements are the new black, with many going it alone or inviting just those who are the very closest to them. We can help you figure out where to go, how to get there and what to do after you say “I do”.
Engagement Parties, Hen’s Nights & Wedding Showers: at heart, Kate and Lizzy are party planning dynamos. We can help you plan any party, big or small, including your engagement party, hen’s night, bridal shower and any and every other type of celebration. Especially for those couples who would like to keep their wedding “branded” throughout every stage, we can style and organise the whole shebang.
These ideas are just the tip of the iceberg! Don’t feel limited by what you see here – if you have a party or any other type of event or special day in the works and need a helping hand, give us a ring or shoot an email our way.
