Here is a selection of lovely thoughtful messages from clients who’ve worked with Carte Blanche Wedding Design. I adore staying in touch with couples long after the celebrations are over, and I am the lucky recipient of lots of beautiful cards and gifts which always makes me proud as punch and a little teary.
Thank you so much for all your help with our wedding! We can’t believe its been and gone!
Having Nat as our wedding planner was the best thing we did. She coordinated all of the many and different companies involved in setting up a wedding and designed a time sheet for all involved to alleviate any confusion.
In a very stressful and busy season it helped take a lot of pressure of me to know that at the end of the day Natalie would be there in charge and coordinating the whole day. That peace of mind is worth every cent if not more!
It also helped with how nervous I was leading up to the day, as I was able to just focus on me and my outfit. On the day I was completely stress free and able to have so much fun.
Natalie was able to give us a lot of tips and help in the leading up to the day. She helped us overcome a few situations that came in liaising with some vendors and company’s that would have been very frustrating if I was working alone.
We would highly recommend Natalie to any and all who are in the process of organising their big day! We can’t thank Nat enough! Once again, thankyou so much for all your help! We had an amazing day (despite the heat! hehehe).

Brad and I had the amazing Nat help us in the lead up to our wedding with coordinating times & us, as well as being there for our big day. Nat is absolutely amazing in making herself so available always and helping with every tiny little detail and calming me down when I had a little freak out here and there. She made sure everything was organised to ensure our day went smooth and was nothing but enjoyable.
Along with our special day came some intense weather – some would say the craziest & wettest weather of the year. We had to change the location of our ceremony twice, which Nat did without a hitch moving not only décor but also 100 people. Being the Bride and not being there for the changes, when I arrived it was as if the location of the ceremony had never even changed. She made sure all of those at the wedding had the most memorable day and that we had the best days of our lives.Without Nat we honestly believe our day would have been in shambles and we would not have been as relaxed and happy.Nat went absolutely above and beyond for us not only on our special day but in the lead up. She is absolutely amazing and I would never go to anyone else to organise any other events I may have. We just want to say the biggest THANK YOU to Nat for being so amazing, we couldn’t have done it without you.

As a “mature age” bride I had no idea where to start with the planning of our wedding and engaging Nat from Carte Blanche Weddings to help us was the best thing Adrian and I could have done.From our first consultation right through to waving goodbye at the Reception, Nat was unfailingly attentive, actively listening to and actioning all our requests and always at the other end of the phone with helpful advice. The contractors we were referred to were unfailingly professional and sometimes the choice was extremely difficult to make – they all reflected what we had asked for and the style we were trying to achieve.The hours we saved of research, meeting with and liaising with contractors more than covered the contract fee. The compliments from our guests as to how well the day went and what a great time they had is further testament to Nat’s excellent planning and organisation. A Fabulous Day!!
It is with great pleasure that Adrian and I highly recommend Nat and wish her our very best for the future.
Adrian & Michelle
I just want to say a MASSIVE THANKYOU for all you have done for our wedding! You have definitely gone over and above and I do not know what we would have done without you!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU

Testimonial of Andrea and Luke Redman’s Wedding 2nd June 2012.
From Mother and Father of the bride.It is with great pleasure that we write this testimonial for Natalie, after the most beautiful wedding she helped us organise for our daughter, Andrea and her now husband, Luke. I knew it was something I couldn’t handle alone (although Alan thought he could) and I (MOB) certainly wanted to remain friends with my daughter at the end of the whole process, which was my chief goal.Natalie completely understood where we were coming from, had her finger on the pulse from day one and gave us incredible support through the whole seven months of planning. Every question was answered, every detail managed impeccably, every t crossed and i dotted. Natalie knew exactly what she was doing and we were left to just sit back and watch the whole process unfold, turning up to important functions, paying the bills, which she carefully arranged for us in installments, so as not to break the budget too badly and giving us the time to enjoy every moment and not be worried about anything other than our daughter’s happiness and letting Natalie sort out her perfectionist tendencies delicately.
As MOB. I felt carried the whole way through. I felt that I should have been doing more, but there was nothing to do. It was pure bliss. Even now, I am still wondering how it all happened. It seems like a dream. I was able to watch the FOB enjoy some special moments with his daughter and the photos bear testimony to this.Natalie was there on the day ~ always in the background, making sure everything was running to schedule and keeping eager fingers away from the lolly buffet in the evening. She involved herself in the fun of the morning, took photos of our beautiful cat, which curled up inside the dress bag as though understanding that something special was happening. She laughed with us, made sure the church was ready for guests, spread Andrea’s dress and veil out so she could walk gracefully down the isle and just generally kept a careful eye on every aspect of the day.FOB – I was to thank Natalie as well. When I was first “told” about having a wedding planner, my initial thought was “why do I need one?” However, she has been marvelous and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone. The most important thing I wanted for this wedding was for Andrea and Luke to enjoy themselves (along with all the guests, of course) With Natalie’s help, this was more than achieved, so much so, that we have received cards from people saying how beautiful the day was. Thank you Natalie. What a huge relief and what a great job Natalie did. I felt like I was saying goodbye to a good friend as we said our farewells at the end of the evening. Natalie will move on to even lovelier events and we have moved on with our lives, however, it was seven months I shall remember and cherish always and be very thankful to her for all her input, care and love to our family. Thank you Natalie, for making Andrea and Luke’s wedding such a warm, beautiful and memorable occasion for us all. Alan and Roslyn

Thanks again for helping us with our wedding! The day went just as we wanted it to and we will remember it for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much for helping organise and coordinating the day especially since it was with such short notice.
I would gladly recommend your services to others.

Dear Mrs Nat,
Now, where better to start than at the beginning of a journey that could never be forgotten. With the scope of planning our own wedding whilst having a husband-to-be a million miles away, I realised that we had to seek out further assistance as Kirk’s fly in fly out work left me at home with our lovely daughter for long periods of time. With a quick search on the internet and only a few phone calls away, Natalie Beckman welcomed us with a very warm and happy greeting from Carte Blanche Wedding Design.The planning began shortly after, to the most wonderful and perfectly executed day. With up to date budgeting constantly at the ready and assistance at the touch of a button over the phone or email, I/we were able to make decisions with absolute confidence. Planning our day couldn’t have been more enjoyable or easier!10/10 marks for your services and we would not come close to how perfect you organised, managed and directed OUR DAY. Expectations were exceeded beyond satisfaction.If we were to be asked, which we already have, we would not hesitate to recommend you as anybody’s PERFECT PLANNER for their special day.We cannot thank you enough for what you did for us, and we will always think of you as our friend,
Kirk and Joanne
You are wonderful Nat!
You did a fantastic job for Jo & Kirk and made the just perfect.
We cannot thank you enough!
Natalie Beckman of Carte Blanche Weddings was such a pleasure to work with. She always displayed such professional and detail in her work. Throughout the whole process Natalie showed the utmost care towards her work and assisting the Bride. She has made the coordination of her weddings seem effortless.On the evening she got along so well with all the staff, offering her assistance when required yet still allowing our supervisors to do their duties.
Natalie went above and beyond what was required and we look forward to working with her again.

We recently had the experience of working with Nat from Carte Blanche for Jo and Kirks wedding. I had never worked with a wedding planner before so it was a new experience. Natalie is a lovely person to correspond with and I can tell she has a personal connection with her couples. The wedding day was a wonderful day and I look forward to working with her again”
Thank you very much for your email and your compliments, it is always a surprise when someone takes the effort to give good positive feedback, so thank you.
I remember the night and working with you and I recall saying to Natacha that Natalie would have to be the nicest and most easy wedding planner that I have worked with. We did communicate very well throughout the night, which I am sure makes both of our jobs a lot easier and pleasant.
Some other wedding planners come in and want to take over and basically make you feel that you have been made redundant, but not so with you, you are very professional in your approach to both the client and to the facility staff.
Thank you also for your feedback on the staff, as you would imagine it takes a lot of effort and hard work to get good staff and I am very proud of the staff that are employed here, they know that not only Sandalford requires the highest of standards but also they know that I do as well and on the most part we do deliver.
I look forward to the opportunity of working with you again later in the year and in the meantime I wish you the very best for your future endeavors.
Functions Manager, Sandalford Wines
It was an absolute delight working alongside you in the lead up to Joanne and Kirks wedding. The efforts you put into the organization of their wedding day certainly paid off, the wedding was a huge success. The staff on the night of the wedding commented on your professionalism and positive demeanor. Brides to be would be privileged to have your assistance in planning their wedding; your eye for detail, sense of style and dedication for the job is commendable. I am very much looking forward to collaborating again in September.
