Realmark Recognition & Awards Evening 2015

Thank you once again for assisting us with a fabulous event. The feedback has been outstanding and comments to say that it is the best we have ever done. I think it was just flawless and I can't wait to see all the photos. I must say also that the videographer was outstanding, he really brought everything to life on screen and created so much energy to the presentation. How good was Verity too!! She was fantastic and didn’t miss a beat, I really think she was outstanding.

Just absolutely loved everything Rach and I know you put so much effort in on the day and beyond. Thank you again, it is such a pleasure working with you!
Thank you.

Engineers Australia

I wanted to thank you formally for the amazing job you did with both the WA Excellence Awards 2014 and DTE 2014.

Your professionalism and attention to detail are really outstanding and this was reflected in the fact that both events occurred without mishap or glitch and attendees at both events gave very positive and encouraging feedback.

Not only did our attendees thoroughly enjoy both events, suppliers and staff from a range of venues and services acknowledge not only your professionalism and attention to detail but also a great working relationship, for which you are to be highly commended and you should be proud of. I would whole heartedly recommend your services to any prospective client.

On a personal note, it has been a pleasure working with you and will miss contacting you on a very regular basis. Again, thank you so much for everything you have done.

Prostate Active

Having you involved with Prostate Active has been a blessing from our very first meeting. You support me when times are hard, you encourage me when I'm feeling tired, and you brilliantly take care of so many things, that I'm sure I don't even know the half of it, without me even asking. What you do just works, you're brilliant.

Your relaxed professionalism when under pressure is amazing and the way you organise and run events on the day is a joy to see.

It really feels that this year our message is starting to be heard and that we are attracting the attention of people who can assist us get our message out further and wider.

Your support and involvement is so greatly appreciated. I really couldn't do this without you, so once again from the bottom of my heart thank you.

My warmest regards

Adco Electrics - Fri 9 Dec 2011

After such a successful Christmas Party last year, we once again asked Rachel from Finest Occasions & Events to assist with all details in organising our Corporate Christmas Party held at our premises for our staff and clients.

The service provided was once again professional and well organised we wish to thank Rachel for making our night a very memorable event once again.

Adco Electrics - Christmas Party - Fri 10 Dec 2010

After such a successful birthday party, we once again acquired the services of Rachel from Finest Occasions & Events to assist with all details in organising our Corporate Christmas Party held at our premises for our staff and clients.

With over 120 guests attending a Gentlemen’s Night, the evening was well and truly a great success and everyone had a wonderful time.

All details from liaising with the caterers, entertainment, styling and décor of the room, and event management of the night, were all efficiently handled by Rachel.

The service provided was once again professional, well organised and conscientious, and these qualities made the evening so enjoyable. I had so many comments about how great the night was and with all the time and effort put in by Rachel and her team to make the evening such a success, we would sincerely like to thank Rachel for making our night a very memorable event.

Once again, Finest Occasions & Events were so professional, well organised and meticulous and we would be happy to use Rachel and her team again for future parties and events.

Bethesda Hospital Fundraiser - Tue 16 Nov 2010

Finest Occasions & Events was recommended to us and we were not disappointed – in fact, the evening’s success was largely because of the superior level of organisation that was offered by the company.

Director, Rachel Gardiner, was an absolute delight to work with; she was highly organised, creative, responsive and saw everything through to the last little detail. It took a lot of pressure off us at the hospital during a very busy time. Her pricing was extremely reasonable.

The best recommendation that I can make is that I will be using the Finest Occasions & Events for our next event.

Coca-Cola John Pemberton Awards - Fri 5 Mar 2010

Everyone is raving about Friday night, so congratulations and a big thanks. We all had such a great time!


Coca-Cola Amatil Melbourne Cup Event - Mon 2 Nov - Wed 4 Nov 2009

I wanted to acknowledge the fantastic event that has just passed – The CCA & IGA Melbourne Cup Incentive. The event ran very smoothly with some great activities such as Wine Tours, Golf, Day Spas, Gala Evening and Melbourne Cup Day Parties.

Well done on bringing this event together on behalf of CCA. A great event that was managed exceptionally.

Ajilon - Sat 3 Dec 2011

Hi Rachel

Just wanted to say again massive thanks for all your hard work on the weekend, all the feedback from the event has been amazingly positive so it's been a great success! I'm glad it's behind me now, but I really enjoyed the evening and I'm even sort of looking forward to planning next years!


Coastal Orthopaedic Group - Wed 28 Sep 2011

Dear Rachel

Just a brief note to thank you for your advice and guidance to ensure a relaxed, appealing atmosphere and presentation in relation to our Opening Launch. Not to mention your support on the night. The fact that you were here actually gave me the opportunity to step outside the square and observe how efficient you are and you were interested to know how the assisting staff were coping on the night.

There were many positive comments on and after the night from our referrers and colleagues indicating a success and clarifying an enjoyable evening.

Coca-Cola Amatil John Pemberton Awards - Fri 25 Feb 2011

Rachel from Finest Occasions organised our annual awards night for two years. We found Rachel and her team to be extremely organised, but at the same time flexible with our requests. We were very happy with the level of service provided and they were able to accommodate all our requests.

Suredata Business Launch - Wed 23 Feb 2011

I had not even thought about using an Event Co-ordinator for our business launch and then I met Rachel from Finest Occasions & Events. I 100% believe that it was Rachel's dedication to making every event the best event, professionalism and wonderful personality that made our Suredata Launch the success it was. Rachel made me believe in Event Co-ordinators so much that we are thinking of renewing our vows just so we can have Rachel 'organise' the PARTY! Thanks Rachel, you are truly a legend in your field.

SPE-APPEA-HSE - Sun 9 Sep - Thu 13 Sep 2012

On behalf of SPE, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to you and your staff for the hospitality and assistance rendered to the HSE delegates and staff during the conference. We surpassed expectations with over 1,700 delegates from 44 countries, and delegates provided many favourable comments on the depth of the technical programme.

We are very pleased with the outcome of the event. Overall feedback from the conference delegates are positive with regards to their satisfaction with the registration process. You and your team provided a high standard of quality service.

Thank you for your support of 2012 HSE. We look forward to working with you and your team again in the 2012 APOGCE event.

Kind regards,


Criminal Investigation Conference - Tue 28 Aug 2012

I just wanted to write to you personally to express my gratitude for your assistance with the organising of the inaugural WA Police Criminal Investigation Conference 2012.

Your organisational skills and industry knowledge and experience were but a few of your many talents we drew upon for the organisation of the conference. Personally, your charming and helpful nature was never able to be broken, even when things didn’t go quite according to plan and stress levels started to rise (as they invariably do in the big jobs). I think the level of planning assisted in making the event run smoothly, but you were unflappable and it was your calm and controlled demeanour that instilled confidence in me and no doubt led to such a smooth running of the conference.
It is without question that we would not have had such a successful event had it not been for your involvement from the very start until the very end. All along the way, you handled every request in your usual friendly and obliging manner, with nothing being too much trouble and most things actioned on the spot, despite your other competing priorities. I always knew if I asked something of you, that it would be done promptly and that can’t be understated. I also consider that many of your efforts were often above and beyond what you were engaged for and I just want you to know that it was acknowledged and greatly appreciated, particularly by me.

I thank you for being such a professional part of our organising committee and look forward to working with you again, hopefully next year. If you ever need a reference, I would be only too happy to give you a personal endorsement because I know from my experience that you have the attributes to deliver professionally every time.

Best Wishes
