Facebook review from Kat Williams, Rock n Roll Bride
Rachel and Jamie’s Wedding – 02/07/2016
5 Stars 

We booked Olivia of Nitty Gitty Events for my sister’s wedding after I featured one of her weddings on my blog, Rock n Roll Bride, and both the couple and photographer had told me how great she was throughout. My sister and her husband wanted a completely outdoors, completely DIY wedding with lots of elements and moving parts, and although they wanted to organise this all themselves in the run up, I campaigned long and hard  to both my sister and my parents that getting a day-of coordinator to make sure the day ran smoothly would be invaluable. Luckily they listened to me!

Olivia was truly amazing. We met up with her a few times in advance and she was always so excited and enthusiastic about the wedding and put all of our minds at ease immediately that she would be able to help us pull it off without a hitch. I know a lot about weddings of course, but I am not an event planner. We could not have done this without her! She helped us figure out the schedule for the day and liaised with all the suppliers the week before so we didn’t have to.

My whole family is so grateful for everything you did for Rachel and Jamie’s wedding. It would never have gone so perfectly without you at the helm.


Regards,

Kat Williams

Testimonial from Graham and Deirdre Underwood – (mother and father of the bride – Rachel Underwood)

Olivia, thank you for coordination Rachel & Jamie’s wedding last weekend. In the last two weeks run up to the event you were a voice of calm and reason as you coped with all the, often conflicting, emails from us. On site you took control and gave us the confidence that everything was in good hands, we were then able to relax and enjoy the day.
Thank you
Graham & Deirdre

Facebook review from Amii Lanham (Bride)

I can quite honestly say that without the wonderful Nitty-Gritty events our wedding would not have been half the day it was. Coming highly recommended to me, the wonderful Nitty-Gritty events took care of everything from creation of a very detailed schedule, to coming to the rescue when I realised with a month to go that I had no florist they really went above and beyond the call of duty to make our day as stress free as possible.
The brains behind Nitty-Gritty, Olivia is quite possibly the most organised, calm and collected ladies I have ever had the pleasure to meet, and she’s pretty cool too.
She completely understood what we were trying to achieve from that first meeting and executed it all perfectly, we have in fact had more than a few people say that is was the best wedding they’ve ever been to, and we probably owe that praise directly to Olivia.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nitty-Gritty to anyone organising a Wedding or any party, always smiling, stoicly making sure we’d eaten enough food, the only thing I would do differently next time would be the clone her so she could be a guest too!

Thank you so much team Nitty-Gritty – we love you X

<<<<<< Every wedding day needs Liv! >>>>>>

That’s a bold statement but a true one! Liv completely took the stress out of my best friend’s wedding day a couple of weeks ago, going above and beyond to ensure that the whole day ran smoothly.

From liaising the suppliers before the big day to helping with the set up and ensuring the bride & groom managed to try the canapés  :-)  Liv thinks of everything and no matter how busy or stressful things are on the big day she deals with it all, plus she’s smiling too! Highly recommend!

Thanks Liv Xx

It was with absolute confidence that i recommended Liv for the recent wedding of Amii & David and the result was superb. Having Nitty-gritty on their side took so much stress and worry out of such an important and special day for them. Liv provided essential planning and on the day co-ordination. Yet, despite her heavy work schedule, she still managed to rock out whilst doing the washing up!

Liv was so brilliant for our wedding. I didn’t think I needed any help but as it turned out I needed someone to be the ringmaster, host and get things moving-er. Luckily Liv was on hand as my best mate but also a brilliantly experienced event manager. Essentially it was her amazing organisational skills, clipboard and won’t take no for an answer nature that turned our ramshackle ideas into a cohesive party. I’ve since witnessed her in action for others at parties, weddings and conferences and can honestly (and probably a bit gushingly) say she’d be a fine addition to your plans. You might not think you need help with your event, but you probably do…

Liv has been the ‘third person’ in our relationship over the last few months and I don’t know where our wedding plans would be without her guidance and expertise. Everybody should have a Liv in their life. Can’t wait for the big day now. Thanks Liv! Pix and Karyn.

Testimonial from Sarah Storie-Pugh
Do you need Olivia?  Probably …..

I have known Olivia Galun for over 12 years since she began in the events industry. We worked together on many international and national conferences, parties and events, before she set out on her own. Not only did she contribute a creative approach to the projects, she was also extremely professional and meticulously well organised. Very good budget management led to profitable (if profit required) and cost-effective events. Not only very hardworking but also fun which made working together really entertaining! Imaginativity, creativity and originality shone through in her approach…..I have no doubt she will make a great success of this venture and I wish her and Nitty Gritty all the best.

Do you need Olivia?  Certainly!
