“I’m a hopeless romantic”

 

With Love was created to make love and romance simple in the modern, busy world we live in. Spending time with your loved one and creating long lasting memories are meaningful acts of love. I wanted to create inspired moments that will become part of your love story. I want people to connect; in beauty and luxury. A setting that removes you from your everyday lives and transports you to your own world, just the two of you. It’s sappy, but like I said, I’m a hopeless romantic.

I have always loved planning and organizing events for myself and others. I studied at AUT university for 3 years to complete a BA in Events Management. I’ve worked in Corporate events, Sport events, Charity events and Entertainment events. But my passion is in the styling aspect of events and bringing joy to people. Making people happy and feel extraordinary is why With Love was created.

With Love will help you show your significant other how much they mean to you. And what better way to do that than with a romantic picnic. We do all the planning and the hard work. You just have to turn up with your loved one for your special occasion and enjoy each others company. Our service will score you points! We have thought of everything to make it the most memorable date you can brag about! And if you want it to be EXTRA we can even plan pre and post date activities to make it a whole day of complete adoration that will never be forgotten. Let us create you a fairy tale experience.

Any day spent with you is my favourite day. so, today is my new favourite day.
— Winnie the Pooh

“It’s our Collective and Individual Responsibility”

 
 

It starts with us…

We don't use any single use items in our styling that can't be returned back to nature. Our picnics are inspired by nature and it made sense for us to align our values and practices with nature at the forefront. We contemplated a lot about this approach as many styling trends can create unnecessary waste. We decided to follow our heart and not use single use items like balloons. We completely respect other businesses that do but its not for us. Our aim is to reduce our waste and our consumer footprint. We buy many of our styling pieces from second hand stores, repurpose items and use pieces of nature that grow abundantly. Nature itself is beautiful so we try to bring that beauty into our picnics. .

The Greatest threat to out our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.
