Brian’s 40th Birthday

About This Project

Emily, Brian’s wife, was the brains behind this epic 40th birthday celebration. Both being from Perth, they had a full Aussie contingent coming over for the celebrations, naturally, Emily wanted it to be amazing! They joked that it was more like a wedding than a birthday.


Emily knew what she wanted and had all the big ticket items sorted but just needed the extra support from us to pull it all together and execute the event on the day. We had a 2-hour consultation prior to the event to chat about her plans and what had been organised, we then helped update the run sheet with the finer details and the flow of the event.


On the day we were able to take the stress off Emily, leaving her to enjoy the celebrations with her family.

We had a blast working alongside Emily, Brian is a lucky guy!
