Sarah Arkin

Sarah Arkin

Lead Wedding Planner/Stylist

I just LOVE weddings…and I mean everything wedding related, from the gorgeous personal details to the amazing moments and memories I get to witness being created on a couple’s special day.  Helping pull together one of the most memorable events in the lives of our clients, and getting their marriage off to the happiest of beginnings is my true passion!

You may notice I don’t sound like a Kiwi (still working on that!), but that’s because I am originally from the States. I first found my passion for wedding planning in Lake Tahoe, California and spent several years planning weddings against an unbelievable backdrop of snowcapped mountains and sparkling blue waters (sounds familiar right?). Well, It was an easy decision to make the move down to New Zealand after visiting and falling in love with Queenstown (around 7 years ago now) and the rest is Simply Perfect history!

Wedding Coordinator

We are so lucky to have Emma on board, she is the jewel of our team who makes sure everything is perfectly placed come wedding day! She is as crafty and clever as they come and has been a Queenstown local for over 10 years. Not only is she a fountain of local knowledge, but her talents for bringing together all the little details….place settings, ceremony setups, table decor….is, dare we say it, pretty hard to match! Emma is from the South Island and loves everything Queenstown…she is the detail oriented, cool, calm and collected coordinator that every bride wants by her side come wedding day!

Libby Woodard

Our Wedding in Queenstown-326

Wedding Planner/Coordinator

We actually like to describe Libby as our ‘wedding superstar’…mainly because that’s what she is!  Libby will keep your plans on schedule and make sure that everything runs smoothly from the time the first guest arrives until the last guest leaves.  She has worked in events for over six years and knows what it takes to make a wedding day not only memorable but stress-free and unforgettable. You will find Libby working away hours before the wedding begins, and by the time the first guest arrives…well everything looks Simply Perfect!
