Why we love what we do...
Its reactions like these that speak a thousand words and make our hearts sing with happiness.
We were so incredibly happy with Hunter Events. Being in Sydney we didn’t know any vendors in the hunter region nor did we have any idea on where to start even planning. We felt so comfortable leaving decisions up to the Hunter Events staff to make for us if we were unsure about anything. The day was perfect and stress free.

When we first started planning our wedding, I was so daunted by the whole process. Thankfully, we came across Hunter Events!! Louise and her team were very professional and had so many ideas .. it was great. They made the whole wedding planning process so much easier. They took care of everything. We had the most amazing day as a result and were able to relax, as we trusted the Hunter Events team to have it covered. Nothing was a problem, even when my wedding dress broke, they were there to help fix it! The whole day came together so beautifully and we cannot thank Louise and Charlotte enough. -The Simpsons xoxo

Hunter Events NSW are the best in the business of wedding planning & styling. Louise & her team have strong supplier connections in the region, and can turn your wedding dream into a reality.
Their attention to detail is meticulous, and they listen to your brief and cater towards your budget. They are 100% transparent, and there are no hidden surprises.
Louise and team treat you like family, and they really do go above and beyond especially on the day. Their styling was on pointe and the attention to detail was out of this world.
The number one thing that impressed us was Louise's charisma, professionalism and her client service. Within 2 minutes of sending an email enquiry she picked up the phone and qualified you, and then invited you to have a no obligation chat. Louise and her team were very thorough and no task was problematic. They were realistic and managed expectations from the start rather than making assumptions. They KNEW which vendors and suppliers to match us up with. We never had to chase her she was always on the ball in terms of follow up.
We would highly recommend Hunter Events NSW to be the preferred planner and stylist of choice for your wedding in the Hunter Region, or other regions in NSW or interstate. We are so gonna miss working with the team after 2 years of working with them to bring our wedding vision to life. We hope they can plan some upcoming events such as baby showers, 40's and 50's.... and other life milestones or even corporate events in the Hunter Valley.
Thank you to Louise & the team.
If you are considering a wedding in the Hunter Region or looking for a planner & stylist who can bring a bespoke wedding to life, then look no further than Hunter Events NSW. Louise & team are extremely professional, customer centric and visionaries for their wedding clients. They are charismatic, approachable, transparent, easy to deal with and have a network of suppliers to make your vision a reality in a budget conscious fashion and be able to manage expectations so costs aren't blown out the window.
The service and quality of output is beyond this world, and we LOVE the team at Hunter Events, they are like family, and sad that our event is now over!!!
Louise picks up the phone in a good old fashioned manner and builds rapport with her clients. She is so organised and meticulous with detail. We're happy to recommend them to anyone considering Hunter Events NSW.
Vanessa & Joseph Rowe - 7th Feb 2021
Louise, you are truly inspirational. Your dedication to your work is impeccable. Maria and I would happily have you plan another event for us in a heartbeat !
We cannot thank you enough for all the extra efforts you made planning our special day. No one could have pulled this off but you !!
Ben & Maria Hatch - 13th Jan 2021
Louise and the team from hunter events made our wedding a stress free and easy process that allowed us to have our dream wedding in the hunter valley without costing us an arm and a leg, they recommended amazing vendors at reasonable prices and were awesome when we wanted to change our date due to COVID and we even managed to keep all the same vendors.
On the day both Louise and Charlotte worked non-stop to make sure everything ran smoothly and without drama. The on the day coordinator is worth every penny and every one getting married should get one.
Louise and the team made us feel like that our wedding was their number one priority and nothing was too big of an ask and a very effective communicator.
Would recommend hunter events NSW to everyone.
Nicole & Kieran Barker - 11th Dec 2020
From the initial contact and consultation with Hunter Events, we knew our wedding would be taken care of. They made the process easy and fun. Once the pandemic hit, Hunter Events were amazing, they knew what to do, they did all our vendor contacting and rescheduling which was a huge relief. They were accommodating, constant and effective communication and overall we are so thankful we had Louise there on our day so we or our parents had nothing to worry about.
Matt & Victoria Brougham - 27th Nov 2020
Harry and I could not have been happier with Louise and her team at Hunter Events in planning our wedding. From day one, the level of professionalism and care from the whole team was phenomenal. We really felt this wasn't just work for Louise, this was someone who had a genuine passion for making our big day come to life. Communication was easy. Louise seemed to always be on stand by to reply to emails, no matter the time! We always had so many questions and Louise and her team were more than happy to answer them.
The whole day ran so smoothly - something we know only happened because Louise and her team were involved. We can't thank you enough for everything you did. We can now look back on our dream wedding with nothing but pure delight and joy, knowing that you made it all come to life.
Laura & Harry - 10th Oct 2020
My husband and I are so lucky that we found Hunter Events, from the moment we met Louise we felt so welcomed, excited and were blown away by their detailed processes and professionalism, there was no pressure and so much flexibility as to where we required their help. Louise could sense that I was OCD and a complete stress head and would often reassure me that everything will be perfect. Louise put me in contact with multiple local vendors, that in addition to a few of our selected vendors were all brilliant. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and I strongly recommend the services of Hunter Events to anyone.
Rhiannon & Daniel Wheeler - 8th Feb 2020
During this crazy time in the world right now, we have had to postpone our wedding for another years time. Louise has been absolutely amazing! She is so supportive and accommodating, working endlessly to lock in a new date for our wedding, plus everything else she does for us along the way.
Louise and her team are hands down one of the best decisions we have made regarding our wedding. We would be so lost without her and we are so thankful and appreciative of all the work she does and to have her apart of our wedding!
Thank you so so much! Xx
Dylan & Bria Moore "To be".
Thank you again for all the work you put in to our wedding. It was nice to know that someone had the details covered on the day and that we could leave our trust in you. Normally at work events it’s my brain ticking over the finer details and it took me a little to let it go, but you both made it easier through your calm way and professionalism. It was a rare treat to just sit and take it all in and know someone would come find me if I needed to do something!
Mark & Ali - 7th Mar 2020
Louise was amazing from the moment I first made contact with her. I absolutely recommend hiring a wedding planner if you are considering it, and 100% can recommend Louise and the team. She was organised and easy to communicate with in the lead up to our big day, and was absolutely awesome on the day of the wedding. Louise was on the ball from the moment they arrived, helping set up and get all the finishing touches together, and helped the evening run smoothly. Louise and Team, a huge huge thanks from Mr and Mrs Small, you were both brilliant ❤️ - 26th October 2019
When were where left by another designer that hadn’t responded to me, Louise was a miracle worker! Less then two weeks before our wedding Louise got everything we asked for and more! She was very informative and answered every question I had.
She had everything sorted for me and ready to go within two days!
I couldn’t thank your anymore! Our day was just perfect!
Thank you again! Love Mr & Mrs Torode ❤️

Louise was an absolutely gem from start to finish. She made every step of our very exciting but overwhelming wedding journey so simple and stress free right until our wedding day. We can’t thank Hunter Events enough for bringing all of ideas to life!
- Scott and Jaimie Lawrence - 12th October 2019
Your organising of this schedule looks incredible – I have done hundreds of weddings and this is the first time I have ever been sent something so well planned and organised and easy to read. – thanks for doing a great job for my great niece.
Francine O'Brien -Celebrant (Lawrence Wedding Celebrant)
We originally hired the services of Hunter Events NSW as we were going through a lot of family situations that were taking it’s toll on us. From the first meeting with Louise, we knew there and then that we would be in great hands when it came to our wedding.
During this time, my mum had passed which made it extremely hard but Louise and her team at Hunter Events NSW wanted to make our wedding memorable for us with all the tragedy that he surrounded us and they did.
From the reassurance that everything was going to be ok to sorting out vendors, the amount of endless communication, the professionalism that was shown to us; our wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect because of you.
If I was ever to organise another event, I would definitely recommend Louise and her team at Hunter Events NSW. They went above and beyond!! Thankyou to you all xx
Jas & Josh Bobbin - 21st October 2019
When we meet with Hunter Events our wedding was 10 weeks away. There was a lot to organise and we were very overwhelmed at the amount of work that needed to be done. From the first day Hunter Events NSW took control and by the end of the first week we had most suppliers locked in and an overall idea of how our special day would look. Fast forward to our wedding day and we could not have asked for a more perfect day. Louise worked with all our suppliers and venue to set up the ceremony and reception and everything ran flawlessly. We could just enjoy the day without any worry at all. The reception was amazing and having Louise as our MC allowed for our night to run very smoothly. We would highly recommend Hunter Events NSW to organise any weddings, functions or events. Thank you so much for being part of our wedding day and helping us achieve a perfect day
Jony & Lauren Jones - 28th September 2019
Andrew and I had the pleasure of having Louise MC, plan and much more for our wedding. There was not a day that Louise was not available to speak about any concerns or ideas we had, even late at night she helped me overcome any doubts I may have had. I don’t think I could have had a less stressful wedding without the help of Louise due to the amount of work she put into our wedding. Always available, I could rely and depend on Louise and she was always happy to hear our ideas. Louise made our day amazing and was professional and lovely the entire time. We entrusted Louise to find majority of our suppliers and they each made our day even more special. I’m glad we could place our wedding in her hands without any doubts. Thank you Louise and team on making our day one to remember we appreciate the hard work and time.
Andrew and Naomi Griffin - 14th June 2019
Louise ran the Wedding day perfectly. No stone was left unturned and the day ran perfectly with every little detail taken care of. Any changes on the day were handled effortlessly and allowed my son’s wedding to run smoothly. All the details in the lead up were handled very professionally and would highly recommend Hunter Events NSW to anyone planning their wedding.
Mark & Leisa Griffin (Andrew's Parents) - 14th June 2019
I am so happy we chose Louise and Hunter Events NSW for our styling and on day service for our wedding day. Louise gave us so many choices to choose from with different vendors that suited our budget and style we were looking for. She made us feel so warm and comfortable on every visit and every time I communicated with her.
Mitch wasn’t sold in using Hunter Events NSW at first until his first meeting with Louise and then he was sold. He also loved her warmth and friendliness like she was just one of our friends, and so helpful.
Having the services of a planner made so many things so easy and stress free. On the day service was the best decision we made. Things would not of ran as smoothly if not for them. And we were given some great deals due to being with them through vendors.
I think you guys are doing an amazing job. Thank you for helping make our day so amazing!
Mitch & Sammy Vella - 4th May 2019
We asked you to plan our non traditional, modern minimalist wedding in 12 weeks of which 5 of those we were both out of the country and you delivered beyond all our expectations. You made our dream a reality.
Your professionalism, persistence, patience and thoughtfulness is a true testament to you Louise, and your team at Hunter Events NSW.
We couldn’t have done it without you and highly recommend Louise and Hunter Events NSW.
Karen and Mark - 29th March 2019
Where do I start!
Louise and her team were wonderful people to deal with. They grabbed our crazy thoughts and turned them into a cohesive and beautiful fantasyland for Caitie’s 21st. They sourced supplies, found the best prices, set up and packed down. I barely needed to lift a finger myself other then to enjoy it all.
When a hitch arose(which they weren’t party to organising), they stepped in and went way beyond what I could expect and made it happen, and made sure I got it for free for the trouble. 🙌🏻 two hands up guys!!
Thank you Thank you Thank you!
Steven, Stacey & the Birthday babe Caitie.
I couldn’t be happier to recommend Louise Manning from Hunter Events NSW. As a bride, planning a wedding can be immensely stressful and overwhelming. With the help and support of Louise I have felt neither of these things but excitement for my big day. Louise has handled everything so professionally and has been contactable 24/7. This is a rare combination I find these days especially in the wedding business. Everything to do with the wedding flows through Louise and therefore I find it easier to handle. Louise has an optimistic and lovely personality and is very passionate in helping Andrew and myself on our special day. I am excited and grateful for the time and effort Louise has put into our wedding and I don’t think I could have gotten this far without her. Both Andrew and my ideas have been clearly expressed and Louise has made this fit perfectly and has not altered away from our vision. Thank you Louise for the amount of amazing planning that has been put into our wedding. - Andrew and Naomi
I attended an event created and planned by Hunter Events recently and was extremely impressed..... The attention to detail was second to none! I will definitely be in contact in the future to engage their service. - Laura
Thank you is not enough to Hunter Events for the amazing 21st Birthday Party for our son. On the venue inspection Louise asked about things I never would've thought of asking. In addition the venue were very happy to work with Hunter Events NSW due to the professionalism and level of organisation shown. It meant the party ran like clockwork. Hunter Events NSW went above and beyond our expectations. I felt confident and comfortable that all aspects of the event were being taken care of and therefore we could thoroughly be in the moment and enjoy together with our family and friends. When considering suppliers and recommendations we had full visibility of everything. We were advised by Hunter Events NSW of all things that we needed to consider, and we were guided in our choices however all decisions were still ours. Louise understood us as a family as well as what we wanted out the party and our friends and family are still commenting on what an amazing night was had by all. We were able to thoroughly enjoy the night in the knowledge that Hunter Events NSW were taking care of every single detail. We Rate Louise's services 10/10 as we could not fault the professionalism shown. - Alex
I would highly recommend Louise from Hunter Events to anyone as she has high attention to detail and strategic planning qualities. This makes planning for any stressful event one to be enjoyed as I believe I'm in safe hands and can confidently know that my vision for my event will be brought into reality. - Nicole
"Hunter Events NSW has made the start of our wedding planning an easy process. Louise is easy to communicate with and sets my mind at easy when i become overwhelmed. Louise made us feel comfortable like we were talking to a friend and reassured us that she meant business when dealing with the venue. Louise got us an excellent deal and strategically saved us a huge $5,500, on the venue and accommodation alone. She offered suggestions to get the best deal the venue was offering plus negotiated further to obtain free venue hire and discounted accommodation. Directly dealing with the venue we would not have obtained these offers or had the negotiation power Louise has. This saving has made a significant impact on our budget and we can now afford a lot more in other areas of our wedding. So far we rate Louise’s service 10/10." - Tim & Bronwyn
"Hunter Events NSW did an outstanding job in every aspect of planning and delivery on the night for our sons 21st birthday . We can honestly say that we felt no stress before the event and were delighted with the actual event on the night. The effort that went into setting up the venue and how it was presented on the night exceeded our expectations. Louise’s hard work in planning the event to our satisfaction and desires was evident to the results she produced on the night, the actual making of the cake was outstanding . We would not hesitate it recommending Hunter Events NSW to anyone who wishes to have a professional company that can deliver their needs, wants and desires" - Grant
"I Jade Jackson, High Street Socials Events Coordinator was paired together with Hunter Events NSW planner Louise Manning to organise Reece's 21st. First time working with another events planner apposed to working solo and i have never been so impressed. I learnt so much from Louise, she is so passionate about her job and what she does it's inspiring! Louise went above and beyond and has definitely made it into my highly recommended. It was a pleasure working with Hunter Events and i without a doubt would happily do it again". - Jade
“It’s hard to truly understand the value of hiring any wedding planner until you go through the process but not only did this turn out to be one of the easiest and best decisions we ever made... it was also incredibly affordable! Aside from the very reasonable price they charged us directly, their ability to negotiate prices from our various vendors along the way ended up saving us tons of money from the prices we had been quoted directly” - Stacey
“I think just being able to get rid of all that worry and know that everything’s going to be perfect, everything’s going to be seamless and if it’s not, you won’t even know about it because your wedding planner will handle it” - Jessica
What our Public Event Clients, Exhibitors, Contractors and Guests Say...
We have had the pleasure of working with Hunter Events and in particular Louise Manning for several years on a number of events. In my opinion Hunter Events is the leading event planning company in the Hunter Region and I recommend anyone looking holding a small, medium or large event to contract their services. We have engaged Hunter Events for several events in 2020 and 2021.
Paul Bennet Airshows
I worked with Louise Manning and her team from Hunter Events NSW on the Wedding Wine Expo at Oaks Cypress Lakes in February 2020, through this experience, I witnessed firsthand a passionate, hardworking team whose professionalism, drive and determination were detrimental to the success of the event. Coordinating many facets of the expo, Louise’s experience in event management was a crucial element to delivering a successful expo, not only did she deliver, she exceeded her vision for the event achieving satisfaction from all involved, patrons, exhibitors, sponsors, venue, staff as well as the local community. The event was a huge success. Louise and her team take such pride in their work, they are consummate professionals, immaculately groomed, warm ready smiles and the ability and willingness to take on any challenge and find a solution. They go above and beyond to ensure their clients expectations are not only delivered but exceeded and are a pleasure to work with.
No matter what project comes her way, Louise will definitely make it a success.

After what was an amazing weekend at the Hunter Valley Airshow, we would like to thank Hunter Events NSW on their professionalism before, during and after the event, Louise was always on hand if we had any questions and replied or responded very quickly to any inquiries we had. The volunteers at the Air Show were amazing and so helpful also. We at Little Guests Australia could not of been happier with the layout we had with an enormous amount of space for all of our activities and shade under the marquee to keep us and the little guests out of the hot sun. We found the event very successful and we measured this by how busy our area was and all the smiles on the children’s faces as they kept coming back time and time again. We found all that attended the event on very good happy spirits and all seemed to really enjoy the event. We would be more then happy and would love the opportunity to work with Hunter Events NSW in the future. - Little Guests Australia

I couldn’t more highly recommend their services, I take my hat off to them, and can’t imagine another event organiser going as far above and beyond as these guys - Alicia Hunter Valley Honey
We could not fault the professionalism of Louise and the team at Hunter Events NSW. Even though we were a small exhibitor at the Hunter Valley Airshow, we were made to feel like our involvement was important and appreciated. Prior to the event, Louise was able to answer questions very promptly, many times outside of business hours. I would highly recommend Hunter Events NSW to anyone wishing to hold an event, big or small. A really outstanding, professional team of people. My father wanted to pass on his appreciation, stating it was the best run event he had ever been to - Peter Jenkins - Air Tactical Assault Group - Team Fusion Simulators
A well organised event, that was hugely successful for all. -CareFlight
What and Event! A huge congratulations to Louise and the team at Hunter Events NSW. The attention to detail was first rate with professional organisation and every aspect of the event meticulously planned and coordinated. - Mark Wiseman Draytons Wines
Thank you for having us we really enjoyed the event and atmosphere. All the staff were really friendly and helpful, we were well informed and advised in relation to the induction process. All our questions and concerns were resolved and sorted out in a professional manner. I felt it was easy to read and understand the site plan. All the necessary documents came through in timely manner. Being an exhibitor the briefing was really helpful in order to customize my self to the events safety plan and smooth operations. I really felt the event was really well organised, the bump in and out times worked well for us as it gave us the time to be ready for the event, it was easy to follow and a smooth process as it allowed us ample time to be prepared and ready for trading. In my opinion on a scale of 1-10 the complete planning and coordination would be a perfect 10 as I felt it was a perfect 2 days for us including the weather which was very kind to us and the turn out of patrons was welcomed. The airshow was awesome and you could tell from the patrons that they were satisfied with the Airshow. Lots of happy and smiling people all through out the 2 days. The vibe and atmosphere was fantastic, I believe the triumph of the Airborne Show was that majority of the patrons left happy and entertained. I would be very interested in future events and hope we can do another event of this magnitude in the near future. Nuray Cambaz - Istanbul Gozleme
