I'm Karen, the owner and operator of Simplicity Wedding and Event Stylists. I am also a wedding and civil union celebrant (see www.loveonlocation.nz).
People and happy, positive occasions are my passion! Along with my passion for joining two people together in marriage, I love my garden lifestyle block in Waikanae. It gives me great pleasure to share my 'special place' with others, whether that is a wedding ceremony, charity event, fairy party or a high tea.
I have lived on the Kapiti Coast for most of my life and have a strong connection to the community and area. Most Saturday mornings I'll be on my pink scooter, looking for something to re-furbish and restore for event hire or myself, hanging out with my grandkids, or entertaining friends in my garden! That's if I don't have a wedding in my garden or I'm performing a ceremony!
I love keeping busy and although my weekends are full to the brim, I also have a fantastic part-time job working for a Montessori pre-school in Waikanae during the week, which I love. I've even been a volunteer fire fighter!
