I'm Hayley Reid, Event Stylist and Founder of Rustic Romance. I obtained a Bachelor Degree in Mass Communications and always dreamed of becoming a journalist but when I discovered my passion for event styling, there was no turning back! It all began in 2013 when I started collecting unique and interesting vintage furniture & decor for my own wedding. I launched Rustic Romance as a hire and style business that same year and since then we have evolved to now offer sustainable event planning and coordination.
I am passionate about sustainability! We are an eco-conscious family - we op shop, buy pre-loved furniture, recycle, compost, grow our own fresh produce and avoid single use plastics - and I apply these same principles to my business. I believe in doing my part to reduce the environmental impact of the wedding industry and I love connecting with folks who share this passion!
I am creative, down to earth and love working with laidback couples. I am always up for a fun time, a good laugh and a bit of banter! I am hard-working, reliable and super organised. I feel so blessed to be a part of so many heart-warming celebrations and I love making the planning process a fun and completely stress-free journey for my wonderful clients!
A bit more about me...
What are my values?
I believe in inclusivity! I want you to do you and I want your celebration to be oozing with your unique personality! I value love, family, kindness and creativity.
In my spare time you will find me...
in nature with my family! We love camping, hiking, kayaking, 4WD'ing, and exploring this amazing country that we are lucky enough to call home!
I'm a farm girl!
I live on a hobby farm in the beautiful Moore River Region, WA, with my hubby and 3 young kids. We love the slower pace of farm life! We spend a lot of time working on the farm, hanging with the farm animals (there's a few of them!), quad riding and sitting around the fire pit. I'm also an organic gardener and am working on building a micro flower farm.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know me! If you are planning a special celebration and feel that we would be a good fit, I would love to hear from you!
