A bit about me...

Hello... Kara here!


x Wifey

x Frenchie owner

x Logistical guru

x Founder & Creative Director of Hustle & Bustle Co.


Over 8 years ago I completed a Bachelor of Business degree from the University of Queensland, with a major in Event Management. Straight out of Uni I entered the event industry and am currently a Certified Event Manager with the Professional Conference Organiser Association.


My passion for events was extended to weddings after I planned my very own in 2018. I'm excited to share this passion with the brides and grooms to be in creating their special day and celebrating love.


Organising is what I do, and I love seeing all of the planning and hard work come to fruition! 


I'm friendly, I have a very calm aura, valuable experience and knowledge of the events industry, and meticulous organisational skills. I am looking forward to helping all of you newly engaged couples bring your vision to reality.
