Put simply, a Wedding Planner is a master of logistics. They have hundreds of events under their belts and bring all the pieces together – from sourcing the best suppliers for your venue, catering,
entertainment, hair and make-up, photographers, videographers etc. right through to creating production schedules and master documents to ensure a seamless event. A Wedding Stylist works on aesthetics; styling the ceremony and reception, seeking beauty, creating moodboards and suggesting like-minded suppliers to use for a cohesive look (and feel) that is a true reflection of you as a couple.
At After the Rock, our team includes both wedding planners AND stylists – which is a very unique offering. We are sought-after for our styling, however we place equal value upon logistics and practicality.
At After the Rock, we can do a little, or a lot. Depending on what your requirements, wants and needs are for the planning of your wedding. We very clearly outline what we will deliver so that there are no surprises and nothing is miscommunicated or overlooked.

According to a recent study by the Australian Bridal Industry Association, the average wedding takes 250 hours to plan. Naturally, you want to make sure you choose a planner who has the time to make your wedding a priority.
After the Rock creates only 10 weddings per year. We make sure that the team isn’t stretched so that we can give you the time your wedding deserves. We give you time to think and make decisions with ease and commit our full attention, patience and support.
You need to make sure your wedding planner and stylist can assist with your investment. This includes guiding you on emotional decisions, understanding the costs of every working part of your wedding and telling you where to save money and providing advice on where to invest your money for greater impact.
Also, make sure they know how to truly read a quote – from the graphic designer to your audio-visual provider. For example, sometimes you can drop some lighting without affecting the overall appearance of the venue or remove one part of your invitation suite to save serious $. It comes down to experience. Experience that After the Rock has.
During the first consultation with your wedding planner, did you feel heard? Were they understanding of your wants and needs? Can you picture yourself spending the lead up to your wedding with this person? There should be a sense of connection and understanding with your wedding planner and stylist – they are on your team. Make sure you feel comfortable and confident they will put their heart and soul into planning your wedding.
