“Shaken & Stirred arranged our entire wedding exactly as we envisioned it.

They absolutely went the extra mile to bring it all together and ensure everything went without a hitch with professional communication and creative flair. The photography, videography, and ceremony could not have been any better! Mix in the hair, makeup, picnic, cake, and helicopter flights which were also all arranged and the value for money was beyond what we expected (or could have done by ourselves).

Our day was unforgettable and the photos and videos are breathtaking. Honestly, we couldn’t recommend this team enough!”

“Every part of our wedding was just AMAZING!!!!!

Charlotte and Kellie are such wonderful, funny and nice people. They were so professional, cool and fun at the same time.

Charlotte listened carefully to every single details and made a lovely, sublime and delightful ceremony for us. Kellie is a marvelous, skillful photographer. She knows how to make you confortable and she captured the best moments without being intrusive.

Our big day was so perfect and magical, thank you so much! Plus, popping bubble wine on top of the mountain with the sunset was the cherry on top of the cake.

Best team ever for your big day.”

“Highly recommend Shaken and Stirred for your special day!!

Kellie & Charlotte helped us to organise our wedding in just under 4 weeks. We honestly didn’t think anyone would be able to help us with such short notice but they pulled it off and it was better than we could have ever imagined!

They got to know us and what we wanted and from start to finish it was tailored to us. They are so experienced and knew exactly where to go for our last minute flower order and dress shopping – we genuinely wouldn’t have been able to do it without them!

Thank you both – we can’t recommend you guys enough. We’ll definitely be back to renew our vows!”

They made our dream wedding come true. We had an intimate, memorable and special wedding because they tailored our day exactly how we wanted it to be. Their online planning menu was very helpful to make it personalised.

“I can’t thank Kellie & Charlotte enough for all their hard work planning our wedding!

We had a small elopement in Queenstown with just 2 guests; so we were keen to make sure it was a special day with an element of fun & they absolutely nailed the brief! Charlotte took a lot of time and care to ensure she could marry us in a personal way and Kellie took incredible photos which we will treasure forever.

Thank you so much for an unforgettable day!”

“John and I loved every part of our wedding day with Kellie and Charlotte. They were amazing from the moment we met with them.

Kellie has a calming but adventurous energy, perfectly paired with Charlotte’s outgoing and bubbly nature. Charlotte carefully walked us through step by step everything we needed before the day so that we could relax and enjoy every moment. Kellie had a ‘barely there’ feel to her photography style. She captured beautiful private moments from afar of both John and I and our guests.

When we look back at our photos, it is incredible the detail of which our entire day was captured and that fun-loving party energy can be felt from start to finish.

Kellie and Charlotte were both so relaxed in the lead-up and during our day, their persona definitely put us at ease too, meaning we could plan less and enjoy more.

Let Charlotte and Kellie guide you, take their advice, and let them do their thing… they’re the experts!”

Claire and John

What was the favourite part of your wedding day?

All of it! Charlotte really listened and captured our story, likes dislikes etc. everything about us really, which was evident in her words. Charlotte made our guests feel at ease, welcome, but also took charge when a few wanted to have an extra wine at the bar! Kellie was an awesome photographer, she made us feel so comfortable, working away in the background capturing the best moments, ones we didn’t even realise she was getting, that’s how non-intrusive she was.

Why would you recommend working with Kellie and Charlotte?

Both ladies are excellent in their fields. They listen, advise and work their magic to make your day everything you imagined it to be. On our wedding day they were a great partnership from start to finish, everything went perfectly!

How did Kellie and Charlotte exceed your expectations?

Just by being present and actually listening to what we wanted. We met with a few other celebrant/photographers in the planning stages and felt it was more about them and how they could showcase their work. But Kellie and Charlottetown made everything about us and our wedding, listened, advised us when we couldn’t see the wood through the trees and just executed everything perfectly!

Any words of advice for couples currently planning their wedding?

Don’t sweat the small stuff. Sure, things may not go exactly to plan on the day, but they won’t even matter and the guests won’t even notice, just go with the flow and enjoy your day!

Any other comments or testimonial you would like to leave about working with Kellie and Charlotte.

Kellie and Charlotte really helped make our day a success. They were instrumental in creating and capturing special memories. If you don’t work with them, then you’re just ridiculous!

Francis & Eamon

What was the favourite part of your wedding day?

The views and location were fantastic, even the backup location that due to weather, we had to utilise. It was certainly still a fantastic day.

Why would you recommend working with Kellie and Charlotte?

Fully recommend. Both individuals were highly professional and despite a time difference of 12 hours, both were very responsive and helpful in getting our day planned in and amongst our very busy jobs.

How did Kellie and Charlotte exceed your expectations?

Waking up to torrential rain and low cloud, they both worked hard to ease our concerns (and stress), helping us find a suitable window and location, that also worked for a disabled relative to allow us to enjoy our big day together. They were also exceedingly helpful in finding a fantastic venue post the event to celebrate with our family.

Any words of advice for couples currently planning their wedding?

Don’t be afraid to ask the silly questions as we all go through a million questions planning. Email and Skype Kellie and Charlotte who will bend over backwards to help; we asked lots of questions, even meeting for coffee on our arrival to discuss the event and it certainly helped make our day far relaxing and enjoyable.

Any other comments or testimonial you would like to leave about working with Kellie and Charlotte.

Kellie and Charlotte are an absolutely fantastic team, who went above and beyond to give us both a truly memorable day with family and friends.

Greg and Steve

What was the favourite part of your wedding day?

Favourite part would have to be spending time with family and friends. Kellie and Charlotte worked as a team to make sure the ceremony/day went to plan, so we didn’t have to!

Why would you recommend working with Kellie and Charlotte?

I would recommend working with Kellie and Charlotte as they were incredibly professional, lots of fun and the perfect fit for our day. They both supported us leading up to the day – through planning stages as well as on the day.

How did Kellie and Charlotte exceed your expectations?

They both went over and above to make sure our day was really special and unique for us. Kellie specifically went out of her way by visiting the venue in advance to plan our photos and staying late into the evening to capture some of our best photos!!

Any words of advice for couples currently planning their wedding?

Relax and enjoy yourself. Try to not get caught up in the details!

Any other comments or testimonial you would like to leave about working with Kellie and Charlotte.

We would love to celebrate our day all over again. It was truely one of the best days of our life. We couldn’t have done it without Kellie and Charlotte!

Caitlin & Scott

What was the favourite part of your wedding day?

It’s hard to pin point a favourite part, but it really was the best day of our life! There is something so special about celebrating your love for one another with your closest family and friends – all whilst having a whole lot of fun!

Why would you recommend working with Kellie and Charlotte?

I couldn’t recommend both Kellie & Charlotte highly enough! Firstly, they are both so incredibly organised – they both talked us through how the day would look for us with what we are after, and discussed different options to suit our style of wedding, as well as really getting to know each other before the big day. On the day of the wedding, we all just felt like friends and it just made everything so comfortable, fun and natural.

How did Kellie and Charlotte exceed your expectations?

Most people go into a wedding, never experiencing it before – and it is really daunting as you don’t know where to start. Both Kellie & Charlotte made sure they everything we needed was covered off, even things that you don’t think of – they have!! Charlotte put together such a fun and vibrant ceremony, which is exactly what we wanted – and our guests all asked if Charlotte was a friend of ours because it was so natural and she got to know us. Kellie made us both at ease throughout the day getting our photos done and captured the most EPIC wedding photos I have ever seen, we were blown away!

Any words of advice for couples currently planning their wedding?

Make it your own! This is your day, not anyone else’s – so don’t let any one else influence what is the most special day of your lives. Most importantly, take in the day and don’t let it get away from you, and have fun!

Any other comments or testimonial you would like to leave about working with Kellie and Charlotte.

Kellie & Charlotte know what they’re doing, and boy – they do it well! If you want to have a fun and loving ceremony, and beautiful images to capture every moment, then you are in the best hands with these two – the dream duo.

If you have any concerns about us using any of the photos from your day please let me know.

Not a problem at all!
