GERALDINE + JONATHAN | Gunners Barracks, Mosman

"When we first started looking for a wedding planner to help us plan our wedding we must have looked at just about every single option in Sydney. What made Audrey & Angus stand out was initially the classic and simple elegance of the website that was also reflected in the wedding photos there. We were pretty sure we had found our wedding planner!  This was confirmed when we first met Lauren who is as smart and elegant as her website. From our first meeting with Lauren to the day of our wedding there was nothing that was too much trouble or too difficult for Lauren to help us with. She was able to determine what sort of wedding style we wanted (even if weren't able to articulate it very well!) and gave us brilliant recommendations for everything. She was always excellent to communicate with - prompt with replying to emails and texts.

We cannot recommend enough how invaluable having Lauren help us plan our wedding was. She is extremely professional and has a fantastic sense of style. And also, a truly lovely person! Thank you Lauren!


CHRISTINA + CAMERON | Wanda Beach + Zimzala Restaurant, Cronulla
"There is so much to plan when it comes to a wedding, and I was so wrong in thinking I could do it all myself. Thank goodness we had superwoman helping us out! Lauren was so calm, organised and thorough, gave great styling advise, kept track of payments, and thought of everything. My whole family were so grateful to have her there on the day and I would never have done it without her. She made the the whole day easy, relaxed, beautiful and fun. I am so grateful that we found you Lauren, thank you so much for creating such a special day for us!"

 


LIZ + RIC | Gunners Barracks, Mosman

"We wanted to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU for all your hard work, professionalism and knowledge. You really pulled everything together just as we wanted - even in spite of the threat of rain! We had such a fantastic day!!! The set up, the appearance, the look of the venue, how it all came together and the comments we had about it all, was just perfect. All the styling set up of what we wanted, was exactly what we got on the day. The amountof guests that came up and said to us how intimate and elegant the wedding was, like it was a real family event and people felt honoured to be there. This really made Ric and I proud!

You and Kat (photographer) in particularly were the two people that helped me keep calm on the day and that meant that I got to be excited the whole day rather than be overwhelmed or nervous. Having you help me with my dress, just before I walked down the aisle was one of many memories of the day and I felt everything was under control.  The trust that I was able to develop and feel in you, meant that I felt really comfortable with all the wedding planning, really happy to hand parts over to you, knowing that you would have the same vision as me- this was really important to me and I'm ecstatic with the outcome, so THANK YOU LAUREN!!! "


KATIE + SEAN | The Bible Garden + The Boat House, Palm Beach 

"I just wanted to say the most enormous thank you for everything you did for me, not only in the final weeks leading up to the wedding and for your enormous effort on the day (I only just heard you engaged in battle with some northern beaches construction workers for me!), but also for this whole past year. I must have been such a pain with how many changes I made, and how many questions I had!
Sean and I joked the other night about how much we erred from the original plan, and how much if I had my time again I would have hired you to do EVERYTHING. I will be recommending you all about town for your amazing work – “full service wedding planning” all the way!"

GEMMA + DEAN | Hickson Rd Reserve + Dede's on The Wharf, Walsh Bay
“We cannot thank Lauren enough for everything she did for us on our wedding day. From day one we knew we didn't have to worry about a thing, the entire process was effortless and completely stress free. With little direction from myself, Lauren created the most beautiful ceremony at Hickson Road Reserve, it was just perfect. No one can beat her eye for detail and creative flare. Thank you for making our ceremony the most picture perfect venue possible! We will recommend you to everyone!”


RACHEL + JOE | Yurulbin Park + Our Place Restaurant, Balmain
“ I just wanted to send you a really big thank you for all you did last Thursday. The set up at the park, the little extra things you helped out with at the ceremony, and the restaurant set up; it was all incredible. I’ve been picturing in my head for the last few months how everything would look and to see it come together even better than I imagined was an amazing feeling! Not only that, you did everything with a huge smile on your face and you were an absolute pleasure to deal with right from the moment I contacted you. I would recommend you to anyone!!
Thank you again for all your hard work and creativity”


BRIDGET + BEAU | Private Property, Conjola National Park
“When Beau and I first got engaged I thought “how much work could organising a wedding really be?”. Oh my, thank god my darling sister (and ‘only maid’) talked me into having a meeting with Lauren because it became immediately obvious just how much work a wedding was, let alone a unique wedding with all the special features that make it a true reflection of your personalities. Thank you so much Lauren! You added so much to our special day and I was the calmest bride I have ever seen. I had many worries throughout the planning process that I had taken on too much, but every time I had that thought I remembered that I had Lauren there to help and all my worries just floated away. I could easily trust Lauren to recognise our style and execute it more than perfectly on the day, her ideas were unique, classy and stylish (never overdone or cliché), her professionalism was absolutely 100%, and she went above and beyond the call of duty. The result? A wedding that our friends will talk about for years to come and that we can look back on and remember only the awesome fun we had! Without Lauren, the wedding quite literally wouldn’t have come together and I would have come apart!

When I look at the photos of our wedding day I think I look really serene – in a very big way this is because of Lauren – I could hear the music going (cued by A&A), the guests arriving (greeted by the grey A&A apron angels) and the grape fizz pre-ceremony drinks going down a treat (made by the talented A&A team) and I could see Lauren (& her wonderful A&A assistant) buzzing around like crazy all night (doing EVERYTHING) and I knew I had nothing else to do but relax and have fun (and we REALLY did). Thank you so much Audrey & Angus – from the very start until the very finish – you were amazing!!”


CAITLIN + FRANK | Simmer on The Bay, Walsh Bay

Thank you so SO much for all your help in making our dream wedding reality. You are extreamly creative and took all my crazy ideas on board through the whole planning process.
 I’m so glad we included you in making our special day amazing! All the best for your future success.


MICHELLE + MATT | McKell Park, Ceremony + Fort Denison, Reception

My experience with Lauren from Audrey & Angus has been absolutely brilliant, from the first moment of planning, right up until the big day! If you have a vision, Audrey & Angus will turn it into a reality. Not only is Lauren warm, friendly, and creative, but she is also extremely professional. No detail was missed, every idea was noted and by that afternoon, I would receive an email about the discussion we had earlier, with the wheels already in motion. She will even go above and beyond her duties to help you fulfil your dream.

I found Audrey & Angus to be very well priced, and each piece that I hired had been hand-crafted and designed by Lauren. This makes your wedding feel very unique. The theme for my wedding was “Rustic Romance”, and this is EXACTLY what was achieved. Your wedding is obviously one of the most precious days of your life, you want everything to be perfect, and this brings a lot of worry and stress in the lead up to your big day. With my experience, whenever I would speak with Lauren, I would always feel such a relief and a sense of calm that everything was going to be ok. I knew that I was in safe hands, and that was a big help. It is something very special to see what has been in your mind for so long, actually turn out to be more magical than you could ever imagine. And my expectations were high…of course, as every brides is, and so they should be. My husband Matt and I, will be forever grateful to Lauren for not only creating such a special ceremony and reception that our guests haven’t stopped raving about, but for also being such an absolute pleasure to deal with. 

Thank you Lauren, It was the best day of our lives, and you were a major part of that.


EMMA + ROSS | Private Property, Mount Kembla

Lauren, just wanted to send you another big thanks for everything you did on the wedding day, we honestly could not have done it without you and your team. Everything was fabulous, despite the last minute changes due to the rain.

Looking at the photos just reminds me of what a fantastic job you did – there is no way we could have pulled it off without you!

Thanks again, you really were fabulous!


JACQUI + BRETT | Magpies Nest Restaurant , Wagga Wagga

A quick note to say thank you so much for all of your work for our wedding on October 12th. Your excitement leading up to the day helped keep us excited rather than stressed in the lead up. We seemed to be on the same page from the start however you managed to put all these extra little touches that made our venue even more beautiful than we were hoping for. When we arrived at the reception and walked in, it was amazing, we were blown away. Your set up took all the stress away. We also had so many compliments from our guests, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Audrey & Angus in the future.


NATASHA + NICK | Le Sands Functions & Events, Brighton
I just wanted to send you an email to say a huge THANK YOU for all of your efforts & hard work throughout planning our N&N engagement party. You went above and beyond for us and I just want to let you know that we really appreciate it.

From the get-go you have been such a breeze & pleasure to work with. From your super organised planning to the execution of the styling on the night, you did everything with such flare & ease. The place looked fantastic, better than I could have ever hoped for and without you our night wouldn’t have been as amazing & special as it was.

We have had SO many complements on the styling & floral arrangements & the photo booth was such a success so thanks for suggesting it to us. Jarrod was so amazing too – the poor guy had people in that corner the WHOLE night – squeezing so many groups into that little section and did not once complain. He was a hit!

I would love to keep in touch and talk wedding plans.


ROCHELLE + JASON | Dunbar House, Watsons Bay

“ We love you! Can’t thank you enough! Biggest wedding fans! Truly amazing!

Lauren you are truly amazing! Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts for all your help in planning our day of love. It was absolutely perfect and that was because of your great organisational skills, attention to detail and fabulous styling.

With neither of us ever attending a wedding before you guided us and really put your heart and soul into our day and in every aspect and you could see. So many guests said it was the best wedding they’ve been to, and with all the small detail it really made it a fairy tale wedding.  You have the wow factor!

I cannot thank you enough, I would recommend you to any bride to be, and if Jay and I could get married all over again you would be our planner again that’s for sure. When babies come in the future we will definitely be getting you to plan baby showers and birthdays.

So much positive feedback from family & friends regarding all that you did! You may end up having to do some weddings back home in NZ that’s how much everyone loved what you created!

Thank you thank you thank you, from the bottom of our hearts your passion stands out in all that you have done for us, a true inspiration x”


HALEY + IOURI | Mosman Art Gallery + Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf Pyrmont

“I need to start by say a big THANK YOU! Lauren – you have no idea how much you helped us not only in the lead up to our wedding but also the day of!

I honestly think we would not have enjoyed the day as much as we did if we didn’t have your help. We had so much trust in you and not once did you let us down. You were very professional through out the whole process but also very personable and such a caring person. I must mention that all of our vendors said they had never seen such a detailed run sheet and were very impressed. If it wasn’t for this the day would never have run so smoothly. On the day of our wedding our guests were constantly saying it was the best wedding they had been to! Everyone was expecting me to be a “bridezilla” and I think I would have been if you were not around.

Again, Thank you. You made our wedding day such an enjoyable day to remember.”


CARLY + GARY BOWLER | Shelly Beach + The Nuns Pool Restaurant Cronulla

“With the support, guidance of Lauren, my wedding day was the most beautiful day of my life. Lauren helped create a wedding that I could never have dreamed of. Her attention to detail is impeccable and she has an eye for class and elegance which enabled Lauren to create our stunning ceremony and reception.

My day was stress free, well organised an her suggestions for the timing was perfect allowing the day to flow beautifully! She was there to lend a helping hand every step of way, for the whole bridal party, family and friends.

Lauren is a gentle, polite, and unique woman who is extremely knowledgeable in etiquette and the dynamics of Wedding Planning. Throughout the planning of our wedding there was no request was too big or small. Lauren managed the day with poise and grace an in my eyes the wedding was completely flawless!

Since the wedding it has been lovely to hear numerous people commenting on how beautiful it all was and wanting to know more details about the styling – The type of flowers and the way the reception was decorated. My reception centrepieces have been replicated for an engagement party of a friend of a friend and apparently copied many times at the Nuns Pool as they have my photos in their album for new clients. The Nuns Pool used my photo for a full page ad in BRIDE TO BE Magazine which was a wonderful surprise to open and see MY wedding. My photographer also submitted my “real wedding” to Polkadotbride and we featured in a complete story and photos…Both of these unexpected and were a credit to Lauren’s hard work and eye for style and detail.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your dedication to making our day so memorable.”


KATHRYN + PHILIP | Simmer on the Bay, Walsh Bay

MICHELLE + BEN | Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat, Kangaroo Valley

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did with the wedding. The place looked AMAZING! Everyone commented on how beautiful it all looked and even the photographer said it was some of the best styling he has ever seen. Also thanks for keeping it all running so smoothly, we didn't have to worry about one thing all day (apart from a bit of panic about the rain) and it all went perfectly.”


TAMMY + PETER | Rose Garden, Royal Botanic Gardens

“Just wanted to write an email to say Thank you and express our gratitude for having you set up and style our garden ceremony event in the botanic gardens. You have proved to be exceptionally professional in your approach and i wish you and your business all the success you deserve. I did not have a single hesitation in using your services for our wedding as you were always prompt, personable but professional with a great eye to detail in our email correspondence.

SUPPLIERS


SARAH HALBWIRTH, EVENT COORDINATOR | Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf

During the first half of 2013 I had the pleasure of working with Lauren Harrison, Audrey & Angus, to plan and deliver a prestige and successful wedding event ( Haley & Iouri ) .

As a venue manager I work with many wedding planners but what I really appreciated about working with lauren was her attention to detail and planning skills. Nothing was left to chance.

She ensured that her creative vision for the event was well communicated to us – enabling our operations team to be well prepared to deliver the best service and venue outcomes. Lauren’s detailed run sheets and careful thought about logistics ensured success.

Lauren was also an active force on the day of the event – once again liaising, monitoring and; immediately and effectively dealing with any issues that arose. There was a high level of confidence amongst all of the staff on the event.

Some of the outstanding features of the event were:
• A successful integration between the wedding planner and venue supplier
• Effective us and planning of the venue logistics
• A relaxed and calm event management atmosphere
• A bespoke event vision that net the client’s needs

As a qualified and experienced event manager, I admired the approach and professionalism of Audrey & Angus. I hope that Doltone House has further opportunities to work with Lauren.


STEFANIA D'AMICO, VENUE SALES MANAGER | Dunbar House, Watsons Bay

I had the privilege of working with Lauren in the 4 months leading up to Jason & Rochelle’s wedding.

I have worked with many wedding planners in the past and my experience with Lauren has left a lasting impression. Working with Lauren was effortless. Professional, organised, creative and friendly only begin t describe her skills which Lauren consistently demonstrated throughout our time together. She was always readily available to answer any questions of mine whether it be major or minor. Personally I feel that great communication is crucial to any working relationship, particularly one involving the coordination of a life changing event like a wedding.

I relish the opportunity to work with professional wedding planners like Lauren and strongly believe that she is an asset to our industry. I genuinely look forward to working with her again.


KARA MANDINA, PHOTOGRAPHER | Mark & Kara photography

Mark and I were lucky to work with Lauren at Audrey & Angus for the wedding of Haley and Iouri. The wedding was scheduled for 9th March and Lauren first made contact with us on 1st November 2012. Lauren provided us with the most detailed run sheet we’s ever received from a wedding planner, ever. We had no questions at all and were completely informed without any over the top and time-consuming phone calls and emails. On the day Lauren was very calm, helpful and on the ball. We look forward to working with Audrey & Angus again ASAP!”


CATHERINE KENNEDY, AUTHORISED MARRIAGE CELEBRANT | Your Sydney Celebrant

When couples plan their wedding, in the beginning they really don’t understand how much work can be involved, and how much time is needed to take care of everything to make their wedding day special and unique to them as a couple…….And that’s where Audrey & Angus Weddings and Events step in!!!

As a celebrant, I organise the ceremony side of the wedding day, but I have been fortunate enough to have worked alongside Lauren and her team from A &A, a number of times, to see how organised they are, down to every fine detail. Lauren is an asset to anyone planning a wedding or an event, who want to plan and enjoy their special day, without all the worry. From my experience dealing with Lauren, she always offers a professional and personlised service to her clients, and take care of every detail, large and small.

From my perspective on the wedding day, they are organised, unobtrusive and discrete, and always helpful with arranging signing tables, setting the ceremony scene beautifully and helping to co-ordinate the bridal party, before their grand entrance, and so much more.

I am always happy to recommend them to my couples who are looking for Wedding and Event Planners, and I’m always so happy when I know the A&A team are helping any of my couples, plan their wedding day.
