Starting your own business can be daunting, but it's a challenge that is completely worth it. Having worked in corporate events and promotions for the last 6 years, I felt it was time that I took that plunge to start my own wedding planning business. With my passion for event planning, the decision to move into weddings was pretty easy. Having worked for some of the biggest corporate clients in Australia, I've coordinated and managed everything from product launches, pr stunts, fashion shows, on ground events and promotions. This experience has taught me to be detail focused and process driven! Any event, no matter how big or small needs a detailed plan. It is these skills that I want to bring to the wedding industry and to the events of my bridal clients. Australia offers a beautiful array of cultures and traditions, which is the most thrilling part about this industry. The fact that I can work on Australian, Italian, Greek, Indian, Chinese and many other multicultural clients all at the same time is any creative person's dream come true. The learning is constant which makes this job really interesting, as no two clients are ever the same. As a wedding planner, I carry out many roles for the couple. I'm their event coordinator and manager, a negotiator for their suppliers, but also their best friend that gives the shoulder to lean on when things get a little overwhelming with the emotions! I am that personal assistant "Every planner that works at Nikki Mehta Weddings aims to be an extension of their client's family and is trusted by everyone not just the bride and groom" ~Nikki Mehta that every bride seeks for her special day but never finds. Every planner that works at Nikki Mehta Weddings aims to be an extension of their client's family and is trusted by everyone not just the bride and groom.
