Nightingales is the dream child of Kathy Apostolidis that became a reality in 1994. Kathy’s vision was to establish a Wedding Planning and Styling service that embodied the highest standards of quality and service and of course, cutting edge style. Subsequently, the Nightingales team of Wedding Planners and Stylists has been selected with the utmost care, incorporating the elements of artistic flair, superb organisational abilities and a genuine desire to do everything in their power to create the wedding visions of their clientele.
Kathy is a well known identity in the industry. Often referred to as ‘The Wedding Guru‘, her hands on involvement as a wedding coordinator in the industry means that Nightingales’ clients enjoy the benefit of having access to state of the art
products and services for their wedding.
Ahead of the field in the wedding industry for over 15 years now, Nightingales’ secret to success is a collective passion to pursue new ideas that expand the boundaries of both style and service. Innovations such as co-designing FLOW, the first Australian software dedicated to Wedding and Event Coordinators and creating Wedding Workshops for Brides, is testimony to their commitment to
constantly develop their service and stay on top of their game.
Nightingales’ reputation has secured its place in wedding industry circles, with requests for media appearances as well as requests to plan and style celebrity weddings. But while they enjoy the kudos that such recognition brings, Nightingales’ priorities remain the same – exclusive products and service that is inclusive to all.
