Stephanie & Duncan – Whisper Bay Park & Whitsunday Marine Club (VMR) – August 2016
Thank you for all your kind words, I could not ask for a more perfect day everything turned out great.
We are currently in Brisbane airport waiting to board our flights to the Cook Islands we can't wait to sit back a relax' when I get back I will let you know how it was.
Firstly Duncan and I would like to thank you for all your help and assistance over the past 12months to help us create the wedding day we both dreamed of. You should be very proud of the work you do and I guess it shows with the award you won this year.
VMR was amazing and Wendy and her team were great she sure is a character. Also Felicity and her team at beautiful beach weddings did an awesome job with the decorations and creating such a beautiful setting everyone at the wedding was commenting and very impressed.
Fish D'Vine Catering the food was sooooo Yummy and there was plenty, I had noone complain that they were hungry but only how great the food was I loved it and Mum was happy too.
Whitsundays Baked Creation I love love loved the cake and how simple but beautiful it was, and tasted amazing and I think everyone else enjoyed it as there wasn't much leftover.
Colleen our celebrate was so beautiful and lovely to work with and made me feel so calm when deciding on my ceremony, and yes I heard all the tears when we did the butterfly release but I think it was perfect and my brother did a great job on the reading.
The accommodation at the Boathouse was great too and everyone who stayed loved the views and the rooms.
The flower hut created the most beautiful bouquets and button hole I absolutely loved them and they smelt amazing.
The photo shoot went great once I have some I will send you a couple of pictures.
Thanks again Helen for your help in creating such a special day for us both.

Brandy & Joe – St Catherine’s Catholic Church / Whitsunday Arts & Cultural Centre (WACC) – March 2016
We were planning our wedding from the US and had run into a ton of difficult with our venue and sorting out the various vendors for our big day. We found Helen, and Total Weddings, and she sorted us all out.
She even made sure that everything went smoothly on the day of.
My only regret is that we didn't find her sooner! She is absolutely the best!

Yelly & Ben – Whitehaven Beach – May 2016
We would like to pass a huge thank you to yourself for all the hard-work you put in to making everything so seamless and amazing. Also for being so incredibly patient and accommodating and most of all for putting up with all my nagging and sometimes pushiness. It takes a special kind of person to do what you do and I now believe the job picked you, not you picked the job cos you are truly amazing.
If you could please also please pass on an individual thanks to all your colleagues who also contributed to making our day a fairy-tale:
Florist: For making my bouquet prefect even though we had a few issues with the laws changing on Whitehaven beach. Also for the beautiful flowers that were delivered to our parents. They were stunning!!
Cake lady: For the most spectacular cake I have ever seen, it was just perfect and the flavour was to die for.
Carnie: For doing the most amazing job with my hair and make-up, she made me look stunning (if i do say so myself lol) She is an amazing person and nothing was too much trouble for her an even though i didn't quite know what I wanted and contradicted myself with what i was requesting. She was still able to create exactly what I wanted.
The drivers: Who allowed us in their car after being covered in water, sand and colour. Especially Vaughan who went above and beyond taking a video of the whole colour throwing session and then send a copy of it to us here in Melbourne.
The Pilots: For taking care of our family and getting us there and back safely and also unexpectedly bringing cheese and crackers and champagne for us to celebrate with. Which was amazing!! Deanna: What can I say about her, she is truly an amazing soul. We could not have done it without her. She listened to exactly what we wanted and was able to give us a ceremony that fitted to exactly who Ben and I are. I cannot thank her enough.
Mike: For capturing our special day which we will be able to watch year after year. We can’t wait to see the finished product. And for also assisting in the setup of the sand ceremony and tables and chairs.
Rob: What can I say about Rob he is awesome, he captured the day perfectly and what he was able to do with the trash the dress colour session is spectacular. We cannot thank him enough for being able to capture exactly who Ben and I are and nothing was too much trouble for him. He was also able to get us a copy of the photo's before we left (which was unbelievable in itself) and has been with us every step of the way. We can’t wait to see what he does with our album.
If there is anyone I have forgotten, can you please pass on out thanks as it was not 1 individual person who made our day a success and fairy-tale. It was the amazing team you have working for you and of course the most important person, yourself. Once again thank you so much for everything.
We look forward to returning for our 1 year anniversary, Take care Helen
Tanya & Brendan – Montes Reef Resort – May 2016
Now that we are back from our honeymoon, and had a few days to settle back in (mind you its freezing here, not liking it at all) I just wanted to send out a huge THANKYOU email, to you and your team for everything that you did for us, to make our day so special.
Trying to plan a destination wedding would have been almost impossible, without your constant 24/7 support and guidance, thank you for your countless hours of support and guidance when we needed it, for being at my beck and call and telling me everything will be just fine after I had more than a few bridezilla moments and after what seemed like numerous failed attempts and disappointments at trying to find the perfect location. Montes Reef Resort was just amazing, and I don’t think we could have chosen a better place, it was everything that we dreamed off. Give our thanks to Rob, for his amazing work, we are going to have such a hard choice trying to pick our favourite photos.
Please also send our thanks to Deb, for her amazing cake. It really looked amazing and tasted just as good, was so disappointed that we didn’t get to take any home to enjoy later, but I am sure the girls at The Palm House enjoyed it just as much we did. Also please thank Zoe and her team at the Event Company and Felicity and Kim @ Beautiful Beach Weddings for their gorgeous transformations of Montes and The Palm House. They understood exactly what I was after and everything they did was perfect.
The day didn’t go without its fair share of dramas (but what wedding day doesn’t), but we wouldn’t have changed anything for the world, and we are so very blessed that you were there, to help guide us through every step of the way.
Once again, thank you so very much, words cannot describe how grateful we really are.
Talk again soon.

Sarah & Troy – Daydream Island Resort & Spa / Whitsunday Marine Club (VMR) – June 2016
I've just been going through all of our photos again and even though you have something headed your way in the mail, I couldn't wait to say a proper thank you! We didn't get much time to take a breath on our way out of Airlie Beach and having returned from our honeymoon, we're enjoying taking a proper look at everything!
Wow! So many wonderful things - where to start?
Firstly, we are completely thrilled with our photos - they're just incredible and Rob was amazing on the day! Everyone just loved him and we can't believe he had all of our photos done by the very next day - incredible! We can't wait to organise some albums so we can showcase all of those beautiful pics.
Thank you so much for taking care of the cake for us - it was such a relief to not have to worry about it when we were over on the island. Fish D'Vine were also amazing. Dad's band plays a lot of weddings on the Sunshine Coast so he's no stranger to wedding catering and it's often cause for concern or complaint but everyone completely raved about the food - they said it was incredible and I have to agree with them! The meals we ate were delicious and ginormous! Amazing!
The only thing that people raved about more than the food was the venue and the decorations. We're so glad you showed us the VMR - everyone was absolutely blown away by its location and couldn't stop talking about it. They all agreed that it was completely worth the trip from miles away to gather in such a beautiful spot. I do apologise that everyone was early (I guess it's true that teachers really do make the worst listeners) but they all adored watching the sunset and just taking in their surroundings. I hope they didn't inconvenience you by being far too early!
Then there were the decorations. Having done an awful lot of pinteresting in the lead up to the wedding, I had an idea of how I wanted the decorations to looks but they were better than what I could have even dreamed of! When we walked in it was like we were walking into a fairytale! It was the completely perfect setting and made the whole evening just that little bit more special. We can't say enough how much we appreciated all of the hard work that must have gone into setting up and taking down all of those magical decorations and especially how easy it made things for us. We were able to completely enjoy our day knowing that everything was being taken care of.
We sat down later and considered our whole day and decided that there was absolutely nothing that could have made it better and nothing that we had any regrets about. All of our friends and family agree that it was a completely flawless event my family reckon it's set a very high benchmark considering I'm the first to marry. It was completely perfect and that was largely thanks to you and your wonderful teams of people. We can't tell you how grateful we are! Hopefully you've seen some of Rob's amazing photos - if not, let me know and I can send through some of my favs!
Thank you so much again,
Mr & Mrs Mutton

Thank you! Helen you made my wedding so beautiful and stress free and I can't thank you enough for all your help over the past year and your patience when I kept asking all my questions.

We had a very special day, thank you for being a part of it.
We got the photos from Rob on Sunday and they are all fantastic!!! Could you please thank him for getting them to us so quickly. It was really nice to be able to look at all the photos with our families while they were still in town.
We will definitely be in touch next time we're in Airlie.

Roxanne & Matt – Headland Park / Ocean View Function Room (WSC) – July 2016
Apologies for the late response, been hectic since the wedding. Back home in the States now.
I just wanted to say thanks for everything. The wedding and reception went perfectly and a better day could not have been asked for. All our friends and family had a great time and the Whitsunday Sailing Club venue with the outdoor area was perfect. It allowed the kids to run around and also a place for the adults to hang out and socialize. The food was great, the DJ did a great job and the area where we had the ceremony was picture perfect. Thanks again.
Can't wait to see the photos!
Thanks, Matt & Roxanne

Mike is a legend! So easy going and friendly and I cannot wait to see his work!! I am super excited.
To be really honest.. It was extremely difficult for Jarred and I to make the decision to elope and we had to over come so many emotions. Total Weddings and suppliers involved have been nothing but exceptional and delivered the most precious, memorable, amazing, unforgettable moment in our lives. We will take this moment and cherish it for as long as we shall live. Thank you to everyone who has made this memory.
