I am a very personable kind of person so this is me, Kristy Aitken, founder of Maple Weddings and Events.
A bit about me- Having sold my hugely successful recruitment agency in Brisbane City (If I can toot my own horn!) I uprooted my family from the city & headed to the hills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
Having studied Events & Venues Management along with a business degree I opted for a career change and was offered a role as venue manager at a prestigious DIY hinterland wedding venue in Maleny.
My original vision for Maple Weddings when founded in 2018, was to offer wedding planning services only. In just a very short time I recognized that couples prefer convenience so with this in mind & my apt nature to be busy I expanded very quickly! Building up an extensive hire range collection we can now offer beautiful styling designs & concepts with our very own hire collection.
My dream happened because of my beautiful family. I am wife to my husband Scott, after almost 20 years of marriage & we have 2 gorgeous girls aged 13 & 10. My family, friends & industry peers would all say I am fun! I am often known as the energizer bunny as I just keep going. I love to be busy! If I am not busy I am bored and that could mean trouble!!
I have been so thankful to all the couples who have entrusted us over these few short years & super excited to help many more. If I am honest I am a realist. I love seeing that my dream is now a reality & want to share this with all our amazing couples & ensure your dream wedding is a reality.
Now you know a bit about me I am excited to hear about you and your journey together as a couple.
