Hey there & hello! My name is Mandi & this business Ivy & Bleu Events is my special baby; my creative outlet & the happiness in my every day. Growing up entirely wedding obsessed my journey started in 2011 and we quickly grew to become one of the leading specialist event styling companies here in Queensland.
Making the decision to add florals to our business allowed us the creative control to ensure that our chic effortless type of styling was matching with equally heavily blooms. Our style is romantically classic with just a tiny hint of trend. Think floor length clothes & textures of French linen, big open flexed blooms in that gorgeous antique shade of blush.
Offering Styling, Concept & Creation, Full Service Wedding Planning, Diy Hire, Floristry, Industry Education & On The Day Co-ordination on the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Australia Wide & Internationally.

From the Scenic Rim to Byron Bay, Noosa and beyond. If creating memory making celebrations with a whole lotta love and joy is what you’re looking for, then I’m your girl!

When you say “we do” to The Secret Bridesmaid you get me, and only me, putting all of my heart and soul into helping you create a wedding that is perfect and unique to you. I’ll be here for you whenever you need me, and what you see is what you get. I am sometimes awkward and a little bit quirky, but I am always dedicated to listening to your needs, whether you need a full wedding planner, on the day coordinator or just a little bit of advice.

Working with me frees you up to focus on enjoying the build up to the day, rather than worrying about timelines and how you’re going to get everything done. I will help guide you through every step of the process, taking care of all of the details so that you can relax and enjoy the journey into married life together.

If you think that The Secret Bridesmaid is “the one” for you, let me know and we can get to work on creating the best day of your life. xx Gabby
