A BIT ABOUT wilde
I'm Kimberly, co-founder of Wilde, wedding coordinator and super-star stylist!
I am all about bringing my clients' visions to life. From the smallest, most intimate of affairs, to the grandest, most epic weddings - I'm going to make sure you are blown away with the aesthetics and the whole experience.
My background (prior to 2014) was in Environmental Project Management; I hold a Bachelor of Environmental Science, a Graduate Diploma in Botany and a Diploma of Business. What do any of these have to do with weddings I hear you ask? Well, my experience as a Project Manager lead me to develop meticulous planning skills, abilities in communicating with vendors, sourcing products and materials, creating budgets and meeting deadlines; I dealt with projects valued at over $1M! My training in Botany lead me to develop a love of all things natural and native which means I love flowers and my Diploma of Business helped me gain the confidence to start my own business, manage funds and market it.
Since 2014, I have been involved in over 300 weddings, from 'big fat Greek weddings' to the smallest of ceremonies, even acting as a witness for a couple that eloped in Perth. I now run two businesses in the wedding industry and work for myself full time, whilst being a wife and mum to these crazy kids.
Having been on both sides of the coin - my experience in the industry, and having planned my own wedding - I know all the ins and outs of the process. I can't wait to get to know the wedding you have been dreaming of and turn that into a reality!
I'm Courtney, co-founder of Wilde, wedding coordinator, and organisational queen!
I love love, which is why I'm in the wedding industry. It makes me so happy to plan and create one of the most special days in my couples' lives. I'm a very authentic person and I'm not about the fluffy stuff. Every couple is different, but to me the most important thing about planning a wedding is to remind my couples of why they're doing this in the first place - to make a commitment to one another. I love working with couples who want to have an epic wedding, but who will also be true to their own style and personalities rather than just taking on whatever is trending.
My background in the wedding industry began in 2017. I opened my first wedding business as a florist in February 2017 and crafted floral pieces for tonnes of weddings over the next two years. I loved it, but I very quickly realised that there was a lot more I could, and a lot more I wanted to offer my clients - that's when Kimberly and I joined forces.
Wedding planning was the perfect choice to engage more with my clients, utilise my crazy organisational skills, and put into practice my Accounting degree (yup, I've got a Bachelor in Commerce, majoring in Accounting and Business Law).
When you put together my organisational and time-management skills, my accounting background and love of weddings, you get a dedicated, organised and knowledgable wedding planner who just wants to see you and your partner have the most incredible day possible.
