Ingrid & Kayla, 5th December 2020 The Lodge, Bellingen

Words cannot describe the endless gratitude my wife and I feel for Mikhayla and her team for making our wedding the best day of our lives. Mikhayla and the team styled and co-ordinated our epic wedding in December 2020 at Bellingen Valley Lodge. She navigated the challenges of COVID restrictions, a date change and a venue cancellation with such grace and ease. She was prompt, professional and so lovely in what I’m sure were hundreds of emails about every possible detail.
The day was everything we could have dreamed of! From each styling piece to the seamless flow of the day, my wife and I were in a dream. Our guests loved every second and we were the most relaxed brides that actually got to enjoy every moment without a worry in the world – we knew Mikhayla had it on lock.
If you’re considering a co-ordinator, stylist, planner and all round queen of the wedding industry, then Mikhayla and her One Day team are your people.

The most amazing wedding planner!! My partner and I highly recommend Mikhayla and her team. It was hands down the most incredible day of our life. Not only was it stress free, everything ran so smoothly. There were a few little hiccups along the way but Mikhayla every single time had a back up plan to make sure our day was just as perfect as we had hoped and it was so much more. Due to covid we had to actually change our wedding date 3 times and every single time Mikhayla took care of all the changes and kept us up to date with this all. She made it work so we were able to have all our favourite vendors in on the same day even with all the changes! I can’t recommend Mikhayla and her team enough to soon to be Brides & Grooms.. My bridesmaids even were amazed with how smoothly everything ran and we could actually enjoy each others company rather than everyone running around doing things as Mikhayla had already done them for us. It was such a dream to have someone organise our special day for us so we could just relax and take in the big love bubble. We can’t thank Mikhayla and her team enough. Seriously Brides and Grooms out there the best thing you could ever do is use Mikhayla as your wedding planner because I honestly couldn’t imagine trying to enjoy the love bubble and plan a wedding as beautiful as she had planned for us.

Mikhayla and her team made our wedding absolute relaxing bliss. I have been involved in hospitality and events for years and never thought I would meet someone who could allow me to enjoy my wedding without fussing. I was determined to monitor every single aspect myself, until I met Mikhayla. Her attention to detail and professionalism meant she was on top of everything at all times. She was always available and open in her communications, even between her newborn’s naps, so we were on the same page with everything. She took every change and inevitable last minute development in her stride and always kept me informed. She understood all my visions for the big day and created them exactly as I hoped for them to be. Mikhayla liaises flawlessly with all the suppliers and knows everyone important to your big day. It simply would not have been the same without her.
Her fees are extremely reasonable given the long hours she puts in behind the scenes to prepare everything.
I felt so reassured and able to enjoy my day, knowing Mikhayla was at our side. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Having Mikhayla and the team at One Day Weddings and Events made our wedding day even more memorable and special than we could ever have imagined.
Mikhayla’s attention to detail, professionalism and friendly disposition took away all of the stress of having a destination wedding.
She answered every question we had and found solutions to all of our sometimes difficult requests. She was always contactable and available and would respond to our emails within 24 hours. Mikhayla has access to an extensive list of amazing suppliers and always works with you to find the best fit for you and your budget. On the day, Mikhayla and her team worked tirelessly to set up and pack down the entire venue and ensured that the day flowed to our time schedule so that we could relax and enjoy every minute of it. We cannot recommend Mikhayla and the team at One Day Weddings and Events high enough !!! Thank You from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding as beautiful, stress free and enjoyable as possible. You guys are truly amazing!

From day one I knew we were in the right hands planning a destination wedding is very hard but you made it a breeze!
You would constantly surprise me with how well you understood my vision and dreams. Unfortunately you had the poor task of having to move our venue several times due to unforeseen circumstances and you still managed to make it better than we could ever of imagined! The day was absolutely perfect and it is all because of the hard work and planning of these wonderful girls and especially Mikhayla. You are an amazing person and nothing was impossible. I can honestly say our day would not have been as perfect as it was if we didn’t have the help from your team. We have had many comments of how the day went down without a hitch. Plus the way the vendors all work together made the day all that more enjoyable! We cannot thank you enough for the dream wedding that you helped us achieve, a day that we will be talking about for many many years to come. We will be forever thankful.
Mr and Mrs Diessel oh and Zeus(the dog).

It was sooo lovely working with the highly experienced Mikhayla from One day weddings and events. We had our eye on her service for a while in the lead up to our wedding and when she told us that the date we had chosen for our wedding was her last available weekend, we knew it was meant to be!
Over months of planning, nutting out fine details and throwing questions at her (no matter how silly or what hour) – she always responded in a timely manner and provided support, advice and assistance when required. Mikhayla did an excellent job at liaising with our suppliers and coordinating a game plan for our big day, it was such a beautiful day that we will never forget. Thank you so much for the work you did Mikhayla and team!! Xx

Lydia & Dave, 24th August 2018 Sapphire Beach Mansion

My new husband and I would highly recommend Mikhayla and One Day Weddings if you are starting to plan your wedding. We are from Sydney so planning a Coffs Harbour wedding could have been extremely stressful but Mikhayla made every step of the process an absolute breeze. We even had a nervous week before the wedding with impending weather forecast however Mikhayla had everything under control which made it so much easier for us to sit back and enjoy the moment knowing that no matter what Mikhayla would have everything sorted. If you are looking for someone to listen to your hopes for the perfect day and then bring them to life, One Day Weddings is definitely who you need.

Alex & Colin, 11th August 2018 Villa Vivante

Mikhayla was the most valuable investment we made into our wedding by far. My (now) husband and I live in Canada and did not come to Australia in between getting engaged and our wedding day. Mikhayla handled absolutely everything that there was, from the moment we engaged her until we were dancing into the night on the evening of our wedding. I could honestly not write/say/preach enough about her ability to coordinate, organise, control and direct in such a bubbly, calm manner.

I didn’t know where to start when I first got engaged. I have always loved weddings and seeing how they ran but had no idea where to start when it came to my own. Mikhayla had the right direction at every turn. She knew what I needed to decide on and when it needed to be decided by.

We got the full planning package and so Mikhayla took control of the majority of the organisation and coordination of the vendors/putting together of the wedding which I would find super stressful and not fun. I got to take care of choosing what I wanted, having options put before me by a professional in the field and being able to bounce ideas of Mikhayla. It was awesome. Mikhayla is on the ball, organised and the best person I could have trusted with organising my perfect day!

My husband and I arrived in Australia 5 days before my wedding. My suitcases were lost up until the Friday before our wedding on Saturday, so needless to say, that week preceding the wedding was super stressful. I feel like combining family, friends, emotions, unpredictable weather, etc, you are bound to be at least a little stressed so I couldn’t even imagine what it would have been like if I actually had to worry about the wedding as well!

All in all, I couldn’t recommend getting a wedding planner for your wedding. Mikhayla was amazing and if I had to do it all again I would definitely not change a thing. I would also recommend the full planning package – it allows you just the right amount of input to make your wedding wonderful and allows for the absolute perfect amount of putting all the stressful/frustrating things onto another person to worry about…

Thank you so much Mikhayla and One Day!

Shona & Nick, 7th July 2018 Villa Vivante

Where do we even start! When Nick and I got engaged we had absolutely no idea where to start with planning a wedding and the only thing that came to mind was “we need serious help”. From the first email correspondence with Mikhayla we knew we would be in safe hands.

I don’t know how many times we started a conversation or an email with “Probably a stupid question” or “We have no idea but…” and every time Mikhayla would say “That’s ok, that’s what I’m here for” and solve a problem or give us an opinion.

I’m not sure how many people can say this, especially considering we only got married once, but Mikhayla planned us 2 weddings. 5 weeks out from our wedding, the venue fell through and before we even knew about it and could have time to process the news, Mikhayla had already found 2 alternatives and was on the phone with us to talk it all out and make sure we weren’t stressing or having a meltdown. When we spoke with our family or friends after the wedding venue fell through people were telling us we were handling it well…all we could say was “Thank God for Mikhayla!”.
Throughout the organisation process of our wedding (both times) everything felt smooth and stress free and Mikhayla made sure we knew what was happening, we were in safe hands and that everything was exactly us.

Fast forward to our wedding day and Nick and I had a day that was beyond anything we could have imagined having. For the lack of a better word, it was perfect. We knew that everything was taken care of and that if we had any problems Mikhayla and Megan were there to help out. Our guests have since said it was the most smoothly run wedding and one of the most beautiful they had been to, and for that we have Mikhayla and the One Day team to thank.

I would never hesitate to recommend Mikhayla (and we already are) to anyone planning a wedding; you will be in safe hands with her and even if something like your venue falls through, you will know that everything will be ok.

Jessica & Daniel, 11th November 2017 Sapphire Beach Mansion

Mikhayla, you are truly amazing and you made our wedding day simply flawless.

As soon as I spoke to Mikhayla on the phone it was an instant connection, it was like I was speaking with one of my friends just catching up on the weekends adventures! I remember laughing & smiling practically the whole Phone call and I knew she was the perfect planner for Dan and I.

Throughout the whole planning and the wedding day, Mikhayla was nothing but kind, trustworthy, ridiculously organized and someone we now call our friend!

We received so many updates throughout the planning process, were constantly reminded and sent checklists to make sure we had everything covered! Communication was outstanding, I would text and within seconds I would hear back from Mikhayla. Attention to detail was perfection! Our day was totally stress free and the level of service was outstanding.

There was not one thing we would change on the day – Mikhayla and the team were exceptional and our day was a dream come true.

Mikhayla, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Morgan & Grant, 16th March 2018 Orara Valley Estate

Lovely Mikhayla, how can we thank you for the magic you weaved for our wedding day. From the moment we started emailing I knew you were our girl.

You were professional and committed yet warm and passionate. Me, being a huge worry wart, you went above and beyond to alleviate any concerns I had. Knowing that you had a wet weather plan up your sleeve was so helpful, who would have thought it would have ended up being 35 degrees and Stunning!!!
You were perfect on the day, you knew when the right time to chat about things was and you weren’t overbearing, you just went about setting everything quietly and efficiently. I have no idea if anything went wrong because you had it all covered. To us our day was perfect.

Thank you! Love, The girl in the silver dress and the boy in the kilt xxx

Alicia & David, 25th November 2017 Orara Valley Estate

Dave and I didn’t want a traditional wedding, all we wanted was a big old party in a big old backyard with our party people! So we did exactly that, in Orara Valley Estate’s backyard and with the helping hands of Mikhayla and her crew at One Day Weddings! Mikhayla is a gorgeous, friendly, bright and bubbly soul who doesn’t miss a single detail when it comes to making your ‘big day’ special.

She will tailor her work to suit your needs and really puts her heart into it. She was so on top of things that she was at the place helping the tent people set it up when we arrived 2 days before to make sure it was perfect and she even picked up our sweeties for us on the day so we didn’t have to- all off her own back-, totally over and above. You’ll get a genuine human in Mikhayla, someone who cares and who puts a lot of love into her work and her business.

Highly recommend Mikhayla and the One Day Weddings team

Mikhayla and her team at One Day did the most amazing job coordinating our wedding. They went above & beyond to ensure our day ran smoothly.

Mikhayla is so easy to talk to & was a great sounding board during the planning process. We would highly recommend using the One Day team when planning your big day! Thanks again for making our day so perfect xx

Thank you so much Mikhayla, wedding planner extraordinaire! Everyone says that organising a wedding is one of the most stressful things you can do in life but not with you on board, you were on top of everything from start to finish (even going out of your way to do a last minute bar saving drinks run for us!)

We were able to have the day we wanted and can’t thank you enough for making that happen, If you want an amazing wedding and you’re thinking about hiring a wedding planner then don’t think twice about hiring One Day Weddings and Events.

Chloe & Josh, 27th August 2016 Villa Vivante

It was a joy to have Mikhayla make our special day run so smoothly, it really was perfect! From our initial consultation through to rehearsals the day before, Mikhayla was attentive, extremely organized and never missed a beat!

Her calm and bubbly nature made us feel very comfortable, and her constant
communication with us made us feel our day was under control and in the very best of hands. I would happily recommend Mikhayla from One Day weddings and events to any future bride or groom.

Sarah & Daniel, 24th February 2018 Villa Vivante

I cannot thank Mikhayla and her team at One Day Weddings and Events enough for everything she did for our wedding day. Being a destination wedding we put all our faith and the majority

of planning into Mikhayla and she took my vision and exceeded my expectations. Mikhayla has a great idea for details, is highly organised and made the entire process as stress free as possible.

I couldn’t recommend One Day Weddings and Events enough and thank you again for creating my dream wedding at Villa Vivante Coffs Harbour.

Phillip & Ceara, 12th December 2017 Orara Valley Estate

When we first met with Mikhayla, my partner and I knew that we had found our secret weapon. Mikhayla is an expert in what she does. She’s a pleasure to deal with, but don’t be fooled by her calm and friendly composure, because what your really dealing with here is an industrious logistical mastermind! Every little detail, whether formally discussed or not, Mikhayla has made a note of it and incorporates it into the plan. From the physical aspects of the wedding, like the venue, colours and mood, to the actual flow and order of the wedding (not limited to the day itself, but even arranging meetings with suppliers/services).

One thing we greatly appreciated was that Mikhayla only recommended other services that she herself highly rated and felt would be the right fit for the wedding and us, such as photographers, musicians and florists. This is an aspect that I (Phillip) had totally overlooked before meeting Mikhayla and she absolutely nailed it with her recommendations.

I must point out that Mikhalya clearly works very hard, and went way above and beyond all our expectations. We received so many compliments on the day about how lovely our wedding day was and how we did such a great job, but every time we had to confess that it was all Mikhayla and her team. We can’t honestly take credit for how well the day ran.

The time that was saved on our end by Mikhayla’s hard work allowed us to enjoy the run up to the wedding, enjoy our day in its entirety and be care-free with our friends and family. That in itself was priceless for us. If you have the opportunity to use Mikhalya and her team’s services at One Day, then do it, it’s the best money you’ll ever spend.

Mick & Kyla, 18th November 2017 Villa Vivante

When we booked a wedding planner, we didn’t properly have an appreciation of what a planner’s job entailed or the limitations of their role. What we quickly discovered was that there seemed like there were almost no limitations with Mikhayla.

For anyone who books a venue that requires a planner I think the reputation of Mikhayla around the Coffs Coast is more than justified. More prominently though, if anyone is planning a DIY wedding to save money, I can honestly say that out of all our expenses, Mikhayla and her team were priceless. her organisational and HR skills, as well as flexibility were seamless.

realistically, for a DIY wedding, she can be the difference between enjoying the day or finding it extremely stressful. She pointed us in the right direction and offered us all the right advice.

Elise & Scott, 22nd April 2017 Villa Vivante

I can’t speak highly enough of One Day Weddings and Events. Mikhayla was so organised and attentive that I had no anxiety on the day or leading up to the big day. She nailed the brief. The day itself was seamless and truly was the best day.

She was professional yet very caring and personable throughout the process and the staff that were there with her on the day were just as lovely and helpful. Best value for money spent on the entire wedding. Thanks Mikhayla and team.

Melissa & Tahu, 27th November 2016 Orara Valley Estate

Mikhayla. From the bottom of our hearts we want to thank you for making our dream wedding come true! I honestly can not explain in words how grateful I am.

There are only a few people that truly know how much work you did for us and how you literally saved our day! Without you we would not have had a wedding. I can say with my hand on my heart that our wedding day was perfect, not one little thing went wrong it was 100% amazing and that’s all because of you.

Anyone reading this should absolutely do themselves a favour if you want the most perfect day with no stress at all only book with Mikhayla and her team at One Day Weddings and Events.

Mikhayla actually put her personal plans on hold for us because she cares so much!! There definitely needs to be more people like you in our world! Thank you for being such a beautiful person.
