Thank you so much for yesterday! It was the most perfect day ever and it wouldn’t have been possible without the OFD team. Thank you for all the work you did to make everything flow so perfectly and for the incredible styling. It was the most beautiful wedding I have ever been to (not being biased!)

You were so great to work with and so lovely and calm and efficient!

Thank you x 1,000,000


We couldn’t have asked for such an amazing person to be by our side on the day.

We just wanted to send a quick note to say THANK-YOU so much for making our day so incredibly special.

Absolutely everyone that attended was completely blown away!

We couldn’t have asked for such an amazing person to be by our side on the day.

An epic day!!


You guys are seriously the best! We are so grateful to have had you, everything ran so smoothly and looked insane! Seriously made my dreams come true and all my expectations were exceeded!

To the OFD team,

Just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU!!!

Our wedding and all the events were so perfect! Duncan and I are still on cloud 9 and can’t believe how amazing everything was.

Our guests keep saying how it was the most well organised stunning wedding they’ve ever been to and that is a credit to you and your team!

You guys are seriously the best! We are so grateful to have had you, everything ran so smoothly and looked insane! Seriously made my dreams come true and all my expectations were exceeded!


Both Jordan and I would like to thank you for the past ten or so months. Together, we created something truly amazing. It could not have been more perfect!

A wedding can be a stressful time for some, however your support, flexibility and commitment to our special day made the whole process effortless. Every guest we have seen or spoken to since the wedding has stated that it was the best wedding they had ever attended and that they could feel the love of everyone there. This is exactly what Jordan and I had hoped for… a wedding where people were laughing and genuinely enjoying themselves. You ladies played a huge role in creating the right atmosphere and organised the day in such a way that everything ran seamlessly. I personally am so grateful.

Both Jordan and I can’t thank you enough for your time, passion and support. We hope to cross paths with you again in the future.


I just wanted to touch base to say a BIG TAHNK YOU for all your help and services for our wedding at Thurlby Domain back in November.

The styling was amazing and the florals, not to mention the service you provided us. I’m big on customer service and your company did not disappoint!! We felt you went that extra mile to ensure things ran smoothly and were what we wanted. The whole picture of what you created for us from the florals to the styling were completely what I had envisioned, without the the fuss too; my input was very minimal and that in itself was an amazing relief.
I would recommend your company 110% … and had I been booking a planner, I would have entrusted this to you also.

The team at One Fine Day did an incredible job planning and styling our amazing Wedding.

From ideas and styling, through to transport and accommodation, Kath, Alex, Amy and the whole team were spot on. Their hard work and attention to detail delivered a result that was better than we could have ever imagined! And having One Fine Day there meant we could relax and enjoy the day with our friends and family. We could not recommend One Fine Day more highly!

"Thank you so much! We just had the best day.

Everyone had the best time, and said our wedding will be hard to beat (I didn’t realise it was a competition!). Everything was just perfect right down to the weather – not sure how we managed that! 

We are both saddened by the fact we won’t have anything to do with all the lovely “One Fine Day” team any more!!”


"Exceptional. Kath is truly talented

creative and has a wonderful eye for detail. She took my ideas and made then into our reality. Her team rocks!”


"We can't thank Kath and her team enough

for what was a spectacular wedding day at jacks point 11 July 2016. So creative, professional and organized. We loved all the details everywhere we turned which just made the amazing day even that much better. We wouldn’t change a thing!

Love always,

Mr & Mrs Taupau xxx”


“Thanks to One Fine Day, our day was absolutely stunning

with such beautiful memories that follow. Everyone commented on the styling and said that it created such a beautiful atmosphere. During our whole process, Kath was friendly, approachable and generous. She worked with my concept and nothing was too hard. Further, she has an amazing eye for styling. Needles to say, I can’t recommend Kath and One Fine Day enough!!


“Kath, thank you thank you thank you for all you did for our Wedding!

The venue looked truly amazing & surpassed our expectations. The guests LOVED it & it was such a beautiful surprise to see everything so stunning on the day.”


“One Fine Day, did an amazing job styling our wedding,

taking my vision of rustic, modern vintage, and executing it perfectly, down to the smallest details. I will say if I had to pick my favorite detail, it would have been the place settings with the mismatched vintage plates, antler place holders, and gold cutlery. Thank you One Fine Day!”
