Who we are

White Events is a highly creative event design and management studio, based in Perth and available for weddings and events throughout Western Australia.

Established in 2005, White Events is one of Western Australia’s leading event studios. Made up of a talented team of dedicated event professionals and led by industry expert Lara White, White Events unites creativity and innovation with precision to create events that are exceptional.

As Event Designers, we are passionate about transforming spaces and creating events that are genuinely unique; put simply, we don’t copy, we create.  Our structured design process ensures that we are consistently creating events which flow cohesively from beginning to end.  Our aesthetic is best described as classic with a modern edge, which sees us gently pushing the boundaries to create stylish, timeless events that you and your guests will love.

As Event Managers, we aim to alleviate the stress of planning an event by taking on all of the daunting behind the scenes tasks. From negotiating with suppliers and managing budgets, to event day schedules and logistics, along with all of the accompanying paperwork, emails, phone calls and everything in between. Our commitment is to make your planning experience just as enjoyable as the event itself.

At White Events, we truly love what we do and we look forward to having the opportunity to create an exceptional event for you.

We very proudly support marriage equality and welcome love in all its forms at White Events.

Lara White, Events Director

Lara was fortunate to find her career path early in life and at the tender age of just 20, she managed her first event. Now, 18 years on (you do the math), she has had an amazing, challenging and immensely rewarding journey through the world of events.

As a highly creative and organized individual, Lara combines inspired design with meticulous planning, to create weddings and events that are second to none. Driven by the feeling that comes with the flawless finished product, Lara thrives on seeing what was once just an idea, formulate over time and then come to life in a way that makes her clients eyes light up.

When she’s not designing events, Lara loves nothing more than relaxing with her husband and their three boys, occasionally sneaking out to enjoy a bottle of wine or two with friends and macarons – in every flavour!

Sarah Guarino, Events Coordinator

After completing a Bachelor in Communications, majoring in Public Relations and Events Management, Sarah joined the White Events team in 2015. During her studies, she worked tirelessly to gain practical knowledge and hands-on experience, it was this commitment to the events industry that landed her the job as our Events Coordinator.

Sarah seamlessly brings together the behind the scenes details, from client planning schedules and budgets through to the sourcing and booking suppliers. Sarah is our attention to detail queen and a master of multi-tasking. Her vibrant, stylish approach and hard work ethic have made her a fabulous team member.

When she’s not updating spreadsheets, Sarah is kept busy with house renovations, holidaying on Rottnest Island and her ongoing search for the perfect donut.

Philomena Smillie, Style Coordinator

Design & aesthetics guru Philomena recently joined White Events as our Style Coordinator.  Her role curates our online content and event submissions, so that the White Events brand and all of our wonderful clients are given the spotlight they deserve.  Phil also produces our event mood boards and design concepts, taking Lara’s ideas and putting them on paper as a visual feast for our clients to keep forever.

When Philomena isn’t being our in-house design whiz, she dons the set-up gear and assists with the styling of our weddings and events, ensuring that every aspect of our client’s design concepts are brought to life precisely to plan.

When she’s not managing the White Events brand, Philomena runs her own minimalist print business, drinks wine and attempts to mother her three children.
