Kisses & Cake spent the day following the incredibly talented Sydney based wedding planner, Fiona Deans-Dundas from Couture Wedding Planning, to share a 'day in the life of a wedding planner' to give some insight into what is involved in planning some of the most spectacular affairs in town and what you might need to know if you are looking to work with a wedding planner.
Planning a wedding requires meticulous organisation, creativity and a bucket load of courage. To be a successful, one needs to be extremely well connected; across the latest trends; cutting edge in design; a fantastic communicator; cool under pressure; a savvy negotiator; and a true romantic at heart.
From budget and time constraints to logistical issues and lavish visions, the day in the life of a planner is certainly all consuming. However, for those truly passionate about the process and profession, anything is possible as nothing can get in the way of making a fairytale a reality.

About Couture Wedding Planning
Originally from Zimbabwe, Fiona moved to Sydney in her 20’s to complete her Degree in Hospitality and Event Management after receiving a Bachelor of Commerce from the Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School.
After Graduating Fiona worked in well-known hotels in Australia and around the world. She then returned to university in Australia to compete her Master in Accounting and during this time worked in Bridal Boutique – where her passion and love for wedding ignited.
As she already had a very strong background in organising and executing events from her work in hotels, Fiona decided to fuse her vast knowledge of the bridal Industry and events and started Couture Wedding Planning over 7 years ago now.
Fiona adores everything to do with weddings and this shows in the creating of beautiful, creative and unique weddings for each of her couples.
