Who’s Holly?

Hello! I’m Steph. Holly is a play on my family name, but I’ll give you a free-pass if your first few messages address me as Holly – it comes with the territory. 😉

I am a hopeless romantic, a fresh flower enthusiast and a big believer in brewing a hot cup of tea to soothe the soul, whatever the circumstance. You’ll find me flicking through home-style magazines, taking my puppy on adventures around Queenstown and obsessing over any and all wedding photos. Also, I’ll definitely tear up during your vows and  squeal with delight when I see your wedding dress for the first time (refer back to: hopeless romantic).

I became a wedding planner because I love seeing people happy. What better thing, than helping to create the day that many people remember as one of the best days of their lives? I love the excitement of creating something new and delighting clients and their guests with how perfectly executed everything is on the day.

I’ve pursued this same goal for 10 years, heading straight from university to immerse myself full-time as a Queenstown wedding planner before stepping out to launch my own business, Holly & Co. I’ve personally planned over 100 weddings and been involved in twice that number as an assistant coordinator and stylist.

I’m currently splitting my time between Auckland and Queenstown but am available nationwide.

Holly & Co. is a small creative business dedicated to helping you design and host a stunning event for the ones you love. As an avid stylist and organiser, I am beyond excited to get on board with your own artful and considerate event. I take every opportunity to turn a simple BBQ or dinner among friends into a well-oiled, enjoyable and stylish event and am more than ready to get my hands dirty and help do the same for yours.

I can offer as little or as much insight and assistance as you need, with the same goal always at heart - to help you and your guests have the best time without needing to worry if something has been overlooked in the background (I have it covered!).

I put an emphasis on delivering high quality, consistent results alongside friendly, upbeat and inspired service.

Through Holly & Co. I want to design a celebration that captures your story, sparks joy in your friends and family and is a testament to the magic of your relationship.

If I know what love is,

it is because of you

My Style

My style is graceful, romantic and delicate. For each event, I will get to know you personally and find the magic amongst the small details that make up your story.

Add a sprinkle of my insights and experience into the mix - to complement your venue and take advantage of our awesome local vendors - and we will create something that is so personally you, all-the-while presented in a refined and expert way.
