    Who is Taya Paparone?
  • Taya Paparone

    Hi there. I am a Perth based event manager and creative consultant with over 12 years' experience planning inception-to-service for weddings, corporate celebrations and private functions. Crucially, I understand that the best events are born of a delicate balance between executing meticulous planning while retaining the ability to improvise. My passions include getting it done, getting it right and nailing briefs. I have a reputation for tenacity, ensuring things stay on time, on budget and looking beautiful.

Event Folio...

I believe in a holistic approach to event planning, balancing style and substance to create beauty, buzz and authentic memories. I am deeply organised but retain the ability to work on the fly when required - great events happen when a natural improviser executes a meticulous plan. Peruse the portfolio to see how I apply this philosophy to a diverse range of event types and styles.

Everybody likes a compliment...

A little about me: I’m the type of client you don’t want!  I’m super particular, I care too much about the little things and I find it hard to trust that other people will go to the same lengths that I would to make an event really special. But during a busy period at work, I found myself needing a bit of help with my partners 30th birthday so I reached out to Taya… and now… Il never go back to planning my own events ever again! From our very first contact Taya was incredibly professional, quick to respond and on point with her suggestions.  She respected my budget and my time and totally nailed her brief in just a few short emails back and forth.  


As for her styling… well the pictures speak for themselves!  She did everything from flowers to table arrangements, right down to themed cocktails and custom menus.  Even watching her set up the venue was a treat– she obviously takes great pride in her work and clearly loves what she does and it really shows.  She exceeded every expectation, and then some! My mind was officially blown.


Taya, you were an absolute pleasure to work with.  You took so much stress off my shoulders that, for the first time ever, I actually got to ENJOY my own event! I seriously cannot thank you enough. You will be my go-to person for every single event I hold for the rest of my life and I will recommend you to anyone who will listen! I cannot wait to work with you again!
