Meet Sarah, our Events Coordinator

Published on: October 26, 2015

A little bit about me…
I’m a perfectionist – to the point where I’m hugely annoying.  Once I’ve got an idea in my head – good luck talking me out of it!  I love any excuse to celebrate.  I’m happiest with a belly full of food, a drink in hand, surrounded by family and friends.

What I do here at White Events…
I’m the right hand woman to the boss!  I work closely with Lara to make sure all of our clients are well taken care of.  I research which suppliers are available and who’s the best fit for each of our clients.  I confirm all kinds of pieces of the wedding puzzle, from cars to make-up artists, you name it, I book it!  I run around picking up things like linen and stationery to help make our events gorgeous.  Then when the big day comes along, I’m part of the “style team” getting sweaty, moving furniture, making everything absolutely perfect and then I get to switch over and assist in coordinating the event and make sure everything runs smoothly.  Pretty cool, right!?

Why a life in the crazy world of events?
Well to say I landed every girls dream job would be an understatement.  I graduated from University last year with a degree in Events Management.  The stars aligned (that and I had about oh, 500 hours of work experience) and here I am!  It sounds cliché, but no day is ever the same in events; we are always doing something different.  Running around, meeting with clients, making someone’s dream become a reality.  There really is no better feeling!  We also get to eat cake.  Lots of cake.

5 fun facts…
1. I’m a qualified Make-up Artist.
2. I date a FIFO guy.  5 weeks on, 5 weeks off.  Also known as the best girlfriend ever.
3. I have an unhealthy obsession with The Real Housewives.
4. I’ve worked in Europe as an Au Pair (Luxembourg to be exact).
5. I’m an excellent fisherwoman.  I was gifted my own pink rod last Christmas.

My top 3 wedding trends…
1. Greenery!  Lots and lots of greenery, it really is under-rated!
2. Naked cakes – they are here to stay!  Done well and floraled up – they are pure perfection!  Plus butter cream rocks!
3. Texture!  Think touches of exposed wood, marble, copper…

My style in 3 words…
Classic, effortless and expensive!

When I’m not working, I’m…
Attending weddings!!  Being the boss lady of renovations (we just bought our first home).  Walking the fur child.  Personal training with my bestie (finally decided to give this exercise thing a go).

Summer or Winter?
Summer!

Cat or dog?
Dog!  Fur Mum to Sophie the Bichoodle.

Holiday destination of choice…
Rottnest!  Nothing beats a Summer’s weekend on the boat!

Drink of choice…
Vodka, fresh lime & soda

I love meeting new clients and hearing all about their weddings and events.  I’d love to hear all about your event, email me at sarah@whiteevents.com.au and I’ll send you some info on the event design and management services we can offer you, then we can catch up for a chat and a coffee (and possibly more cake!).
