Testimonials

“...Hiring Susi and Mal to style and co-ordinate our wedding reception at Liddington Gardens was the best thing we could have done.  The gardens are absolutely gorgeous due to the tireless work year-round from this amazing duo.  Our guests were treated to a wonderful afternoon and evening of relaxing in the shade of their beautiful mature garden complete with river, ponds and lush lawn perfect for games and barefoot dancing the night away!...”

“...From the minute I met Susi, I knew I had to have my wedding at her venue - her bubbly vibe, contagious laugh and passion for the perfect wedding was too good to walk away from. The first time I walked around the venue, I found it captivating and a little surreal. It felt like I was in a dream, walking through pathways to different areas of the garden - I knew having this venue would make my wedding day just perfect. And it was! She organized everything to be just the way I had dreamed it to be
and went along without a hitch...

“...We fell in love with Susi and Mal’s gardens as soon as we saw them online. We were living overseas when we got engaged and I found Susi’s website and said to my husband, “I want to get married here.” When we arrived back in the country we went to visit Susi and Mal at their amazing property and we instantly fell in love and knew this was where we were getting married and we never looked anywhere else. We had an instant connection with them both and I knew Susi was the wedding planner I needed...”

Shannon and Cole, February 2019

“…The Liddington Gardens are pristine and a perfect setting to hold a spectacular day. Their set-up for hosting our family and friends suited us great. Susi has wonderful ideas and an amazing eye for detail, she is a powerhouse of creativity brimming with ideas and enthusiasm, eager to bring every bride and grooms' stylistic vision to life. Her extensive collection of styling items for hire is an absolute treasure trove of beauty. I felt like a kid in a candy shop picking all my favourites…”

Amanda and Tyler, February 2019

“…We are so grateful towards Susi for organising a beautiful celebration and very special day. Her efforts were boundless - we would have been lost without her guidance.

“...Thanks so much for everything Susi, you made our dream wedding day a reality. It was amazing being able to just relax before the big day knowing that you had all the decorating taken care of. Both the marque and the reception venue were absolutely stunning, even better than I had imagined. You have such an amazing creative ability and I will be recommending you to every future bride I come across...”

Juno Platt, September  2017

“…I honestly can not thank Susi enough for her amazing support and incredible talent. She turned a small vision of mine into something truly magical! A dream wedding that I never would have been able to create without her! So to Susi Thank you, thank you, thank you and as I have said time and time again, you were born for this job...”

Pippi and Tama, September  2015

“…Susi will go out of her way to ensure that all your dreams are fulfilled in planning your wedding. We loved the fact that Susi gave suggestions but always completely respected our ideas and did her best to incorporate these. There were so many times that Susi mentioned things that we had not even thought of (avoiding any last minute stress) and on the day she was there to ensure everything ran smoothly (which it did). We also used Susi and her team to style our wedding. We had very high expectations around the flowers and styling for our wedding… and we were absolutely blown away with how beautiful the end result was… better than we had dreamt… and because Susi is so passionate she ensured it was totally “us”!...”

Rob and Michelle

“…AMAZING! We had our ceremony and reception at Liddington Gardens. Not only did the gardens exceed our expectations but the service from Susi and Mal was truly exceptional. They both went above and beyond to make our wedding something to talk about for all our guests. We really could not have asked for anything more. Thank you both so much a day never to forget!...”
