I love the unique and individual and truly believe in ‘making your life extraordinary’. Meraki means to do something you love with Soul, Creativity & Purpose and to leave something of yourself in your work. To bring the essence of you into your celebration. Doesn’t that sound like fun? It would mean so much to me to have the opportunity to work with you.
I’m Lauren & I’m so glad to meet you! I'm excited to hear all about this special celebration coming up in your life. I'm totally in love with putting the most amazing celebrations together. I'm THAT party planning Mum who runs towards, not away from planning and designing every event I can. I have a creative soul that needs indulging and I'm addicted to all things events.
I am incredibly lucky to be surrounded by so many wonderful people who I love dearly. My heart belongs to my 2 children - James who is 16 and Taryn who is 14. They are everything to me. My heart also belongs to my wonderful partner. I have a loving and supportive family with my parents, siblings, three nieces and a spunky nephew.
We also have a 6 year old Cavalier King Charles named JJ - he snores adorably and has the cutest, slightly neurotic personality.
I have an amazing circle of friends who come from every part of my life and surround me with support, care and friendship.
I’m a Melbourne girl born and bred but with a heart certainly full of a love for the place I consider my second home - Cairns & Port Douglas. I grew up in the north-eastern suburbs and now live in the eastern suburb of Lower Templestowe with my 2 children and our cat Tim Tam. I love the Melbourne area, there is so much to see and do - truly the worlds most liveable city!
