Having been in the wedding and event business for over 20 years, both locally and overseas, Kim Chan Events has a good eye for what looks great, what will work and what won’t. We have the experience & knowledge to ensure delivery of fabulous results. We specialise in assisting engaged couples and their families  achieve  the ‘wow’ factor for their special day – so it will be an unforgettable occasion for everyone. When you work with us you can expect attention to every detail, creative ideas and a professional, stress-free service, which will surpass your expectations. You can just relax and enjoy the results!

2) What are you most looking forward to at the Christchurch Wedding Fair in April?  

The close of the wedding season brings us to a time where we can put some thought into the season ahead, and try some new trends, and introduce fresh ideas to our brides. For us, time to contemplate and try out new things is always a highlight. It is lovely to talk to engaged couples and see where their inspiration lies and how we can enhance and help them extend that so they can create a truly memorable occasion for their friends and family.

3) What sets this Wedding Fair apart from other wedding showcase events you’ve attended?    

Working  closely with other vendors to create some new ideas and pulling looks together is always a highlight for me! The fact that we get to do this again – this time in the KIWI TIPI at Cossars is a treat!

4) How do you personally hope to inspire Christchurch brides-to-be for their up-coming weddings?  

The great thing about the fair is the scope and space that we get to showcase what we do. Working closely with other vendors, we are able to create vignettes so that brides can get a feel of how this could relate to their big day.

5) Can you reveal a little about what we can expect to see from you at the Christchurch Wedding Fair?

We will have our flower wall featured and on display, as well as some other exciting pieces that people will be able to enjoy and appreciate. One or two strategically placed feature pieces provides great impact and effect – people’s eyes will be drawn to them and you will have to less decorating elsewhere!

6) Finally, what is your new favourite wedding trend to enter the 2016 season? 

Classic abundance is making a great comeback as well as tall centrepieces. Done well, these can really help create a sense of occasion. There is nothing more memorable than walking into a room that absolutely takes your breath away! It is great to see more people embracing the gold and sparkle as well!

2) What are you most looking forward to at the Christchurch Wedding Fair in April?

I am looking forward to meeting other industry professionals in the region and creating some great business contacts – The Wedding Fairs attract the most creative and most dedicated industry players, we look forward to having some great collaborative conversations with these talented vendors.

3) What sets this Wedding Fair apart from other wedding showcase events you’ve attended?

The beautiful open plan setting allows for exploration and open dialogue with a variety of vendors for visitors and vendors alike.

4) How do you personally hope to inspire Christchurch brides-to-be for their up-coming weddings?

We hope we can inspire the DIY’s out there to get creative and set about creating their very own instant venues using Hirepool Events’ large range of hire products. 

5) Can you reveal a little about what we can expect to see from you at the Christchurch Wedding Fair?

We are going to take a rather ordinary item and transform it into an absolute must-have luxury item for gorgeous brides and their bridal parties.

6) Finally, what is your new favourite wedding trend to enter the 2016 season? 

Patterned linen – brides and grooms are becoming braver and opting out of the traditional white on white. Instead of colour added through the use of the traditional table runner, why not ditch the runner altogether and use beautiful soft retro florals with mismatched vases?
