Meet Amanda, the founder of Adorn
Adorn Event Hire was born out of Amanda’s desire to continue her artistic aspirations and create beautiful events. During her 13year career in the arts, as a dancer with ballet companies in Switzerland, Hong Kong and Canada, she was lucky enough to be presented with bouquets on stage which in turn (no pun intended!) sparked her love of floristry. After retiring from dance, she gained her floral training and worked in a high end, fast-paced flower shop in Canada. She then returned back home to Australia with her Canuck hubby and 13-month-old daughter.
In 2011, Adorn was born with the intention to offer decor that inspires and compliments beautiful floristry. Gradually, she offered both styling and floristry for her clients which is now a sought after service and the backbone of the company. Along with her wonderful team, Amanda is passionate about bringing concepts to life and is thrilled when clients invite Adorn back to style another celebration in their lives.
When not working on upcoming weddings and events, Amanda is a mum to her three gorgeous kids. Any opportunity she gets to watch or coach her daughters in ballet is wonderfully special. She has always loved gorgeous homewares and is a long time fan of Canadian interior designer, Sarah Richardson and Fixer Upper’s Joanna Gaines. She also enjoys family camping trips and is currently learning the double bass with her cheeky 8-year-old son.
