Our inspiration behind the day is “Rustic Disco with W O W” where the entire day was a highlight. From transforming a dark Pine Forrest into a disco wonderland with bright pops of floral colour-accompanied with an acoustic live soundtrack performed by one of our incredible musicians, serving mind blowing cocktails against a rustic barn backdrop to sitting back and being blown away by our fire performers at night, I honestly couldn’t select just one highlight.

We did this styles shoot in the middle of the COVID pandemic. The challenges we faced were real life and exactly the same as what our couples will potentially experience. I had to replace every vendors a part from the stylist and the celebrant due to everyone having COVID or being a close contact themselves. In saying this however, this highlighted why our team is so different to every other wedding planning service. Due to The Hitching CO having a range of vendors in each area, we were able to call in different members of the team who were able to execute the shoot and deliver a incredible experience for our couple.

The Barn Cooroibah” is a hidden secret location situated only minutes away from Noosa. It is located on a beautiful ladies property and every time I have been there, I have had the most magical experience ever. This little gem allows me and the team to provide an experience that allows our couples and their guests to experience a magical love story that they would never have experienced before at any other wedding location.

favourite moment.
As the sun went down, the fire came out. Our incredible fire dancers, performed a 30 minute high energy performance that can only be seen to believe. When they involved the couple in lightning the fire installation and got the couple to dance with the fire props..was truly a highlight of the shoot.

“The Hitching Co”. Located in Brisbane, I have developed a wedding superhero team, who plans to shake the wedding industry up and put the WOW back into weddings!!! Check out our website-

Unlike most other wedding planning businesses, where planners have to outsource their vendors, The Hitching Co brings a team of vendors who all know each other and creates magic for couples on their wedding day. The beauty of the vendors knowing eachother is that we all get super excited to work together again and it takes away that “first date feel”. Our team consists of award winning vendors including celebrants, stylists, musicians, catering and drink experts etc- however we also have elite fire performers, drag queens and burlesque dancers to really put the WOW into our couples special day.
