Kelly Cechner and Shaun Cechner Wedding – Backyard Wedding
(FROM KELLY) Zoe just gave us the most amazing and memorable wedding in the hills. I will remember this day dearly for the rest of my life and Zoe had a major part in making it happen. I’m sure I was a frustrating bride – I had a lot of preferences out of the norm and she was absolutely accommodating and pointed me in the right direction with everything leading up to the big day – caterer, photographer, makeup, hair, dress, shoes, wine, everything! She made it so easy and enjoyable, I just can’t praise her enough. I wouldn’t have known what to do without her.
One thing that sticks out is that she really went over and above to make it a special day for us. I didn’t realise all the planning and organising that was going on in the background until I showed up the day of the ceremony, out of my mind with excitement that I was about to get married(!), to be blown away how everything, every little detail, had just come together seamlessly and beautifully. The decorations were gorgeous, the glassware was organized, she’d followed up with the caterers and photographer and all the other hired services, among so many other details, just to make sure everything ran smoothly on the day. It was truly the most special day of my life and I credit that to Zoe at Rutherford events.
(FROM SHAUN) Zoe is at the same time a person who makes things happen, and extremely patient. Our wedding was perfect, there were so many small details (as well as the big ones) that just made the whole weekend incredible.

Kyria Laird and Matthew Cechner Wedding – Bush Wedding
We found Zoe to be an amazing help in the lead up to our wedding. Our wedding was very short notice so we only had less than 2 months to plan it, but Zoe helped to identify and prioritise all of the activities that we would have to carry out. She also had a lot of contacts in the industry, so was able to help find people (make-up, hairdressers etc.) who were available at short notice and high quality. The photographer she recommended was absolutely fantastic.
We also had a rough idea of what we wanted the decorations to look like, but Zoe helped to put together a lot of the little details that made the reception area look so special. In the final week before the wedding things got really hectic, and Zoe was driving all over town picking up trailers, wine, glassware etc. She even drove to the nearest town (an hour from our bush wedding) on the day of the wedding to get some more flowers / natives for decorations. Nothing was too much effort…and all when she was 38 weeks pregnant!! The woman has incredible energy.
We knew we’d be flat out on the day of the wedding getting ourselves ready and having our photos taken, so we’d organised a run sheet with Zoe and left the set up of the ceremony and reception areas to her while we were away. Zoe was the main point of contact for all our services (catering, drinks, band, hair/makeup, photographer, videographer etc etc). Zoe’s experience in the police force and army means that her approach is very structured, and she’s not afraid to boss the staff around to keep things on plan. Little things we didn’t even think about were easily taken care of by Zoe.
The end result was amazing. Our wedding was undoubtably the best wedding of 2017(!), and Zoe played a very big role in that, which we are very thankful for. Will definitely get her involved for next time 😉

Cayley and Lachy Schilling Wedding- Fairbrossen Winery
I would just like to say a big thank you to Zoe Rutherford and Rutherford Events for making my dream wedding happen with only 10 weeks from the day I contacted you until the day I got married.
I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Everything that could have possibly caused me stress you took care of, which was huge for me not only being the bride, but also due to the fact I was quite pregnant at the time!
The day went off without a hitch!
The styling on my big day was exactly as I had envisaged it, and the fact that you stayed to ensure the photos, speeches and all other formalities of the ceremony and reception ran as scheduled, was a huge weight off my shoulders.
The Bed & Breakfast you arranged for myself and the bridesmaids the night before the wedding, and the groom and me the night of the wedding, and the fact that you arranged for the owner to clean up all of the gardens on the property for our reveal photos, was extremely thoughtful of you. The photos turned out amazing.
Having the makeup artist and hairdressers attend at the B&B also was an added bonus as it just made our big day all the more special and private.
I cannot thank you enough and will most definitely be recommending you to others for any upcoming special events! Thank you Zoe Rutherford and Rutherford Events 🙂
