Why weddings?

Getting engaged and planning a wedding is one of the most exciting times in a couple’s life together and it is an honour and a privilege to help bring their vision of their dream day to life. I also love ‘Love’ stories! Every day in my job is so joyful that I think I must have one of the happiest jobs in the world!

Celebrations by Alysia’s style is… Luxurious, romantic and detailed.

Favourite event to date?

I don't think I could pick a favourite as every event we work on or create is special to me. I do however love working with my team and all our wonderful clients.

I draw inspiration from…

Everywhere! During my travels around Australia and overseas I am always interested in the latest trends. I'm constantly looking for ideas about what might work with our couple's chosen venue. I think inspiration is around us all the time!

Favourite travel destination?

I love to travel. I have wonderful memories from many destinations around the world. One particularly special memory is when my husband and I renewed our wedding vows in Santorini after 22 years of marriage. Santorini is beautiful and we had so much fun travelling with our 3 children.
