Christchurch Wedding & Events Planner

Bride and Wedding Planner Amanda of The Big Day Company


Hi - I'm Amanda, a Christchurch Wedding Planner. I'm proud to be a total wedding nerd!

I moved to NZ from the UK in 2009 and fell in love with the people and the landscape.  I'm a coffee-addicted, outdoor-exploring, cat-cuddling crocheter and I'm obsessed with all things wedding related - just ask my husband!

With more than eight years experience in the wedding industry I have wanted for some time to put my expertise and passion to good use by becoming an independent wedding planner.

Tell me about a problem you are facing in your wedding planning journey and I am sure I can help!

With love, Amanda xoxo
