Chic by Cara was born and driven through my passion for events and planning and I will advise, inspire, create, plan and manage the events that best reflects you! Whether that be your wedding, corporate event or private party- I can help with anything you need and I am not only limited to Geelong and its surroundings – I can go anywhere!

Here is some background on my Event Management experience over the years:

I have worked in the Events and Wedding Industry for over 10 years in Geelong, the Surf Coast, the Bellarine, Melbourne and over in London,UK.

I started in the sporting industry (Geelong Cats and Arsenal), and have experience in sporting, family events, corporate and fundraising. I then moved into the wedding industry (Campbell Point House and Peter Rowland Catering – Mt Duneed Estate) and have helped organize over 500 weddings and private events – I have experienced managing it all and love it!

Every day my passion for event planning grows and it has always been my dream to start my own business to help others take the stress out of event planning with the use of my expertise and contacts. I know how it all works and so let me do it for you!

Chic by Cara has now been running for 2 years and over that 2 years we have had the privilege of helping plan over 70 events!!

Geelong, its neighbour’s and it’s surrounding coast presents a world of opportunities for events and weddings and it is my passion and drive to help you bring together all of the amazing suppliers and venues we have in the area to create the perfect event.
