I have a secret to share.
At heart, I’m still the same kid who loved picking roses from the garden, and learning by my mother’s side how lovely it was to set welcoming tables for dinner each night.
It was important to make any gathering at home a celebration. There was no saving for best. Meal times mattered.
I still vividly remember my closest school friends and I feeling so grown up when they were invited to dinner. Mum would cook for us, wait on us and treat us to dinner parties we never forgot.
It caught on, and my friends’ mums joined the fun.
To this day, I gather at the table with these friends, and the memories of those dinner parties are still cherished.
My own story, told through moments that have lasted forever.
Storyteller. Event architect
My childhood story was the springboard for creating what has become one of the most trusted event planning and design businesses in Sydney and southern NSW.
It’s taken me to a magical place where I not only tell stories for a living, but intertwine them into a visual and emotive experience.
It’s the tiny, easily overlooked detail that makes the difference — memories, keepsakes, values and beliefs, these are all part of your unique story.
‘Every moment of your event is thoughtfully built to tell a story that’s unmistakably yours’
What matters to us
Relationships are currency, and we work tirelessly to build and nurture ours.
Every human interaction – client, vendor and guest – is valued, nurtured and cherished.
You put your trust in us, and you deserve our swiftest attention.
Don’t be surprised that we actually return your calls, or share an excited 4am idea via email as we’re on the way to the flower markets – it’s in our DNA.
We rarely do more than one event per day, and Alicia is on site at every event.
Because you deserve to be fully immersed in your celebration, and never feel anxious or fearful.
For you, for us, for our work, for the planet.
We believe kindness and mindfulness make the world go ‘round. We’ve recycled and reused since day one, including gifting event flowers to guests, hospitals and aged care homes.
Above all else – you.
And we will go to extraordinary lengths to make sure your event and your experience is beyond your wildest dreams.
‘If you’re looking for someone who goes above and beyond, and who makes your wildest dreams come true, there’s no one better than Form Over Function.’
