Who loves us


I cannot emphasise just how much Kim has meant to my wife and I. This year was a particularly challenging year with many life changing events, the last of them being our wedding itself. Without Kim, we truly could not have envisioned our wedding even happening considering the events of the year. We consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have met Kim by chance at another friend's cake tasting. Had we not, this would not have happened.
Her work ethic, her passion, her attention to detail, her love for her work clearly shows. She has been nothing but humble and constructive over the past year and has brought to light ideas even we would not have even considered! Her approach to any wedding is evidently anything but pretentious.
She goes out of her way to handle any detail she can take on by herself or her team to pass on as many savings as possible. She communicates incredibly well and always keeps you posted so you're always in the know. She is incredibly patient and works with you on your ideas as long as they have to take until they're just right.
Most importantly, she allowed us to breathe and relax. We didn't have to worry. She did her thing and she only came to us when she needed our input, otherwise behind the scenes she carried on diligently allowing us to focus on our day.
Thank you, Kim. You have provided nothing but love for your work and our family and I could not thank you enough for your dedication and support during a difficult year. You have been incredible and I cannot put in words how much our wedding could not have happened without you.
Much love,
Asad, Rabia and the Naseems

I met with Kim just over a year ago and right from the outset we clicked. Kim's enthusiasm and calm demeanour meant that I never had to worry about anything. She handled my minor panics and constant suggestions with great patience and was always able to leave me with no doubt that she had it all under control. She gave us 110% and made our wedding day so incredibly special. The styling was just perfect, so 'us', and I can't thank her enough for all her hard work in bringing our styling together ensuring that those extra touches were all perfectly placed. I'll be forever grateful. Hiring Take A Vow to do our styling was likely the most sane thing we did, it removed a huge amount of work and worry and I'd recommend it to anyone who is time poor or creatively challenged! We're lucky to have met Kim and I grateful to consider her a friend now. Thanks again Kim! Nicholle & Paul

Wow, thank you. My goodness. What can we say! We both want to thank you quickly before we head off to our honeymoon. We are only away a week so we’ll be in touch when we get back.

But thank you for everything!!! You were absolutely unreal. We honestly had the most incredible day, it was beyond perfect and better than we could have ever hoped for. We are so blessed to meet you and have you help us so much like you have.

Thank you.

Hi Kim

The party went beautifully and Leanne was so surprised she cried. Unfortunately the wind didn't die down but nobody really cared and had a great time. The decorations were loved by everyone especially Leanne. She took some of the bouquets of flowers home and the balloons.

Thank you so much for the incredible job you did.

Kim absolutely transformed the venue for my music event into the exact atmosphere and ambience I envisioned and articulated during our first meeting. Her vision for detail allowed for a big impact within my restricted budget, and she implemented creative and clever ideas that I would never have imagined. Kim took care of everything before and after the event, allowing me to mentally relax with the confidence that it was all going to be great and, most importantly, focus on enjoying the night myself!

Kimmy worked her magic at my 35th Birthday. We decided on a Vintage Around the World theme. Kimmy was able to put the whole thing together meticulously. I was completely blown away by the outcome, I will most definitely be using her again in the future. Thanks again Kimmy and Take A Vow.

Kim did an incredible job with styling and co-ordinating my wedding. She has a great eye for detail and understood exactly what I was after. She was super organised and thought of all of those little things I didn’t even consider! Would 100% recommend her.

Kim was an absolute lifesaver! We tasked Kim with planning a wedding within 4 months and she went over and beyond and made the process so much easier. My husband and I were really stressing out trying to plan a wedding in such a short amount of time while fitting it around work and other commitments. Kim relieved all the pressure by doing pretty much everything and when I thought of something I had forgotten Kim had either already gone ahead and done it, or had multiple solutions on the ready! I would highly recommend Kim to anyone and everyone. She is an amazing, lovely human being who has absolutely astonishing organisation skills!

I can’t thank Kim enough for her help and constant support whilst planning our wedding.
Her professionalism and attention to detail is second to none - I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her! She was absolutely incredible throughout the entire wedding planning process, liaising with all vendors and ensuring my stress levels were as low as possible. The day went off without a hitch, everything ran according to plan - a dream day I will cherish forever.

Kimmy, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so so much. You are an amazing wedding planner/event coordinator - I know who to contact when planning the next big bash! XXX

Kim truly made our day magical and perfect. I didn't give her much notice (about a week) but from the moment Kim said yes, everything was organised and planned to perfection. I had a blueprint in my mind of what I wanted but Kim saw beyond that and bought it all to life.
My balmy, evening, enchanted theme was so intimate and flawless, lights, candles, flowers, white and gold themed throughout.
As the sun set, everyone was in awe of what Kim had put together.
Thank you for taking control and being so amazing Kim. I'm very grateful and appreciate EVERYTHING you did. You went above and beyond my vision. I honestly feel like my words aren't enough to express my thanks xx

In June 2015, Kim was the main organiser for our Primary School Main fundraiser for the year. This involved 120 guests and organising the venue, decorations, drinks, food, music and auction items.

Kim did a superb job in organising this and was always calm and considered when making decisions. The theme was a ‘Winter Wonderland’, and it truly was that from the moment guests walked in. Bubbles on arrival, sparkling fairy lights, stunning Christmas trees, photo booth and magical views over the harbour.

A fantastic evening was had by all and this was largely to the hard work and huge effort put in by Kim and her team. All the guests came away expressing what a fabulous time they had, and when the next one is.

I would highly recommend Kim to anyone looking for someone to organise an event and is wanting someone who will go the extra mile in making it an extra special occasion.

Our wedding was in October 2015 and we were lucky enough to have Kim from Take A Vow helping us plan our wedding. Being a busy mum of 2 young boys and working I didn't have a lot of time to sort everything out especially the little things.

Kim was amazing from the start and nothing was a problem! We are based in Mount Maunganui which is where our wedding was. She came down from Auckland and looked over the proposed wedding ceremony site at the beach and came to our reception venue to talk to the owners with me which I really appreciated. She talked over what sort of wedding we were after and gave me some great mood boards to look at for ideas on the set up and suggested flowers that were going to be in season.
The week before and the day of the wedding Kim was a godsend. We had hiccups that were out of our control like the flower wholesalers roof collapsing in his glasshouse which meant three days before the wedding Kim was sourcing other flowers for me which ended up being perfect.

Then on the day Mother Nature didn't play ball which meant we didn't get to have our beach wedding so we had to move the ceremony inside. But you know what I didn't stress at all the whole time because I knew Kim had it all under control and I surely wasn't disappointed everything was perfect and we loved our day!
I can't thank you enough Kim for making our day amazing and I can't recommend your services enough!

I recently worked with Kim to style and coordinate our overseas wedding (we're from Sydney) and she was absolutely brilliant!! No task was too difficult, and everything ran absolutely seamlessly. Both the reception and ceremony venues looked perfect with every little detail from flowers to the place settings executed beautifully. Even when there were little hiccups with other suppliers, she quickly found solutions to make the entire week leading up, stress free. I cannot thank Kim enough for making our magical day even more memorable. Thanks Kim!!

My (now) husband and I hired Kim to help plan our wedding with only a month to go. She calmly took on the job despite having another short notice one a week later! And it was the best money we spent on the whole event. Kim was just incredible, dealing with a whole host of challenges associated with the venue (Great Barrier Island) despite not knowing the island well. She found all sorts of creative and practical solutions to problems at minimal cost and worked tirelessly in the lead-up to and on the big day. Our wedding was the most beautiful, perfect day, better than we'd ever dreamed of, and much of that was thanks to Kim! Decorations were five times better than they would otherwise have been. In our experience hiring a wedding planner is the smart approach and you couldn't do any better than TakeaVow. Many many thanks Kim xx

Thanks so much to Kim for making our wedding work! We touched base with Kim about a month prior to our wedding to get some help on the day and relieve our family of having too much to do on our big day - she was amazing from the get go! Unfortunately we had a terrible weather weekend for our wedding and had lots of last minute changes that wouldn't have been possible without Kim! Everything was set up and looked amazing and our evening ran incredibly smoothly! Would recommend to anyone wanting to take a lot of stress out of their special day :).

I had my birthday party one evening of January 2016. I wanted it at our house, outside in the garden and I wanted it to look pretty!

As I have small children it's hard for me to find the time to do everything that needed to be done. Lucky for me I was able to have Kimmy from Take A Vow to help me. Not only did she help with the decorations, which looked exactly how I imagined them to be, she also helped with the catering and my last minute plea for a waiter.

Kimmy knew right from the start exactly what I wanted. I had such a great night, it was a huge success (even the moon came out full!) and I had so many people compliment me on the beautiful decorations and wonderful evening they had. This was all thanks to Kimmy and her amazing help where nothing was too difficult. I would definitely recommend Kimmy from Take A Vow to everyone!
