We had engaged the services of Milan Events’’’ for our daughter Sherry and Shahzad’s wedding celebration at the Hilton Hotel on 17th November. The set up and decor was above and beyond our expectations. The decoration done was to the T and with excellent taste. The whole venue seemed like a fairyland. The service was second to none. Sunita and her team put everything into ensuring our day was a success and we had the best day of our lives. Sunita was fantastic with the lead up, planning and organizing of it all.
Sunita was extremely pleasant with a fab sense of humour and flexible to what our daughter wanted. She also went out of her way to help us to carry few big items to the venue also and bring them back. She always gave her suggestion which were most of the time very useful but always left the decisions to us.
She also gave us excellent contacts for Photographers, DJ and flowers and many other contacts where we did not have any idea where to go to.
The guests at our function and even the Hotel staff just were so fascinated with the decorations and have asked for a model photo to be advertised in their Hotel Book.
We say a big thank you to Sunita for being such a big part of our event
The entire setting and atmosphere projected the kind of ambience my daughter had visualised.
If you need interior decoration or wedding planning for any event big or small, I would have no hesitation in recommending Milan Events for the occasion.
Firdosh and Kashmira Siganporia
Thank you very much for all your efforts in putting up a gorgeous set up for our Silver wedding anniversary function. It was a pleasure working with you and we thank you for all your advice and for taking over the total responsibility and taking care of the minutest details.

Thank you so much Yash and Sunita and all the wonderful staff at Pepperjacks for an amazing day. Everything was perfect!
We have had so many comments of how amazing it was.
From the great food to the location and the staff, everything was taken care of. We didn’t have to worry about a thing!
Thank you again Yash and Sunita for a fabulous day!
The Green Family – Wedding 7 Jan 2017
Where do we begin! Thank you both so much for everything you did for us for our big day!
Sunita the set up was perfect! Thank you for all your hard work and guidance along the way we couldn’t have pulled it off without you.Gabi and Bryce Green Wedding Reception
Yash the food, staff and drinks were outstanding! Everyone was commenting on how good the food was so hats off to you and the chef!
We really couldn’t have asked for a better day and night so thank you both for that.
All the very best.
Gabi and Bryce Green – 7 Jan 2017
We had our Wedding at Pepperjacks in December 2016.
Sunita was fantastic with the lead up, planning and organizing of it all.
We met up on a number of occasions and even had a couple of phone meetings as we were living out of Auckland and Sunita always did her best to meet my requests. I couldn’t have asked for any more from Sunita here.
The day itself couldn’t have gone more perfect and this was highly due to Sunita, Yash and the Pepperjacks team.
The set up and decor was above and beyond our expectations. The service was second to none. Their team pulled off an amazing setup, despite some last minute changes due to the rainy weather.
The food was just heavenly!! From the Canapes all the way through to the dessert, it was all cooked and served really well. I still receive comments on how good the food was.
Sunita and her team put everything into ensuring our day was a success and we had the best day of our lives. We cannot thank Pepperjacks enough for everything they did for us on our big day.
We would most definitely recommend this fantastic restaurant, set at the most beautiful location if you are on the hunt for a wedding or event venue.
You will not regret it!”
Thanks again Sunita 🙂 We will most definitely be back!
Danielle and Tim Wells – Wedding Date – 10 Dec 2016
We would personally recommend Sunita from Milan Events to organise your event. She organised our son’s 21st Birthday Party in Mount Roskill. Not only was her decoration set up fantastic but the DJ she organised was amazing. She takes a lot of stress out of organising such an event and this to us was worth every penny in gold.
All our guests marvelled at how well the 21st party was organised.
I would definitely use her services in the future.

Hi Sunita, This email is a note of appreciation for the outstanding service provided by yourself when we celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary on 6th August at Alexandra Park.
Everything was done professionally and in a timely manner. You have been extremely helpful and a true professional and always came back with a caring approach. The decoration done was to the T and with a WOW factor. The whole venue seemed like a fairyland.
Great service makes customers feel that you care about developing a long-term relationship that means more than just making a sale.
A big pat on the back for Sunita. This effort should not go un-noticed.
Once again Thank you very much for the great effort put in by yourself. Pauru & myself look forward to celebrate our 50 years together with you again.
Goolu & Pauru Balsara – 6 Aug 2016
Recently we celebrated the betrothal ceremony of my younger daughter at Richmond Yacht Club in Westhaven, Auckland and entrusted Sunita of Milan Events to plan and implement the complete decorations aspect of the function. I knew that she would do a splendid job because a couple of years ago, she had superbly decorated the venue at our family reunion which was attended by quite a number of guests.
Sunita not only came up to my expectations, but surpassed them. The decorations of the hall, the backdrops, the tables and the chairs were bedecked so tastefully that they appeared grand without being garish. The entire setting and atmosphere projected the kind of ambience my daughter had visualised. If you need interior decoration for any event big or small, I would have no hesitation in recommending Milan Events for the occasion.
Gopal Nellore – 22 April 16
We were very happy and impressed with the wedding set up, decor, venue and the way in which you engaged with us throughout the whole process. It was highly professional and you accommodated for our requests, and worked within our budget. We and our guests loved the wedding venue, and the way the events was organised overall – both the wedding and reception. Thank you.
Pri & Nilesh – 06 Feb 16
I am extremely happy with the service delivered by Milan Events (Sunita and her team). Our wedding was organised in 15 days with a very limited budget.
Sunita made sure we got the best possible decorations within the budget and coordinated everything perfectly.
Very professional, hardworking and a creative team. I would like to thank Sunita with all my heart, for helping me build beautiful memories on the most important day of my life.
Rutu Pandya – 31 Jan 2016
I’m delighted to have contracted Milan Events for my son’s Navjote ceremony and reception. Sunita and her team did an incredible job. Words cannot express the ambience she had created for our event. All my family from India and our NZ guests were stunned with the amazing work she did. She worked with us like family and yet gave both our events the professional touch. Sunita took all the hassle of researching and managing vendors, our job was just to enjoy the experience and have a blast at the function …… which honestly we did. Thanks Sunita for everything, you truly made our DREAM come true… An awesome event which my family and friends will remember ☺☺☺☺☺
Firdosh & Naazneen Wadia – 02 May 15
We are extremely proud of Milan Events services provided at our daughter’s wedding on 07 March 2015. From the commencement date of the preparation for this wedding Sunita from Milan Events has been associated with us as family member and gave all assurance and support and even guided us to the other Service Providers for additional services.
The decoration, set up and the presentation was excellent and she has provided the value for her services which was also recognized by our guests locally and overseas.

Sunita’s presentation / decoration has created the Bollywood spectrum at this wedding and we would like to thank her for end result and we have no hesitation in recommending Sunita of Milan Events.
Vijay, Vineeta, Alka (Bride) and Aachal NAIR – Wellington / 7 March 2015
I write to express my family’s appreciation to you for the excellent work you and your team performed in planning and making the Mandap on 28 February 2015 in Satya Sai Baba Temple Hall in Onehunga, Auckland for our daughter’s Wedding.
Yours was a display of thoroughly professional work. Conducting all tasks professionally and on schedule was impressive and you made our Event free of stress by your regular follow-up discussions right from the planning stage.
The colour added to the Wedding from your attendance to intricate details has been fantastic and i am sure places your company in the top league of Hindu Wedding specialists. All our families, relatives and invited guests have expressed high appreciation of such a pleasant atmosphere created by the team. It has been a real pleasure to have assigned to you such an important task so close to the Bride and Groom’s hearts and to all of us.
We wish your company well, and have no hesitation in recommending that others in need of such service do call on you and discuss their plans.
Kishore Lal – 28 Feb 2015
My family and I would like to thank you for the amazing work you did for my wedding last November. You understood exactly how stressful organising a wedding is and you stepped in and took over the mandap and decoration area so wonderfully! It was a relief to be able to hand over the reins in at least one area to you as you took the time to understand what I wanted and I knew that you would deliver on the big day.
You delivered exactly what we agreed and we were all so happy with the end result. You used your experience to walk us through the many options and guided us towards what we ultimately wanted. The mandap looked perfect in all the photos!
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to all my friends and family.
Nishelle Chand – 15Nov14
We would like to thank Sunita from Milan Events for helping plan our wedding, meeting our decoration requirements and for suggesting few extra ideas to make our day perfect, at the same time keeping to our budget.
The set up was perfect and to our expectations every detail was exactly how we had envisioned it. It definitely made our day memorable and our guests were amazed and talking about how lovely and wonderful the whole experience was.
We would definitely recommend Milan Events to anyone wanting a decorator for their special event.
Nicole & Barry – 16 August 2014
We had one of the most fast track weddings ever, and I cannot thank God enough to have guided us to the website: “MILAN EVENTs”.
The PANIC BUTTON link just made me feel that I was going to get in touch with someone, who knew exactly how stressful and crazy wedding planning can be! And low and behold!!! I met the right lady! 🙂
Sunita, had been absolutely beautiful, gracious, extremely understanding and creative in her work. She understood our fears, our confused minds and brought us the most beautiful and elegant wedding reception.
I would and have recommended this website to my friends. The level of professionalism is commendable and highly appreciated.
Thank you so much for all your efforts and help Sunita! Your kindness has really touched our lives. We will certainly continue with our association with you!
Meena & Myles Sharp – 31 May 2014
Sunita is a very professional person to deal with. The best thing that I liked about her service was, that she listens, and provides you with different options that can work for your taste. What you see is what you get, and if there are changes, you will be informed, way in advance. The pricing is very competitive, and service is amazing. Thank you for making my day so special. I was stress free that day because of you.
Kainat Iqbal. Wedding: Kainat & Piyush – 1 May 2014
We approached Sunita of Milan Events for the decoration of the venue for our son’s Wedding Reception. Since the Wedding was held in India in full ethnic bloom we wanted something more contemporary for our Auckland Reception. I must say that Sunita was very forthcoming and professional in her approach. Not only did she understand our needs but delivered exactly what we wanted. Our daughter- in -law’s favorite color is purple and as we entered the hall the purple hues took our breath away. Everybody loved the warm atmosphere meticulously created by Sunita. Thank you Milan Events for your invaluable contribution towards a memorable evening.
Shobha & Bhushan Pathak – February 2014
My wife and I want to thank Milan Events for all their great work from the day we met, to our wedding day, in making the process so easy and enjoyable. We were dealing with Sunita from Milan Events, and she was very friendly and professional in her approach to our requirements. She helped us unravel how we wanted our day to look like, and then helped us by providing valuable insights that made the day even better!
We used her for the Invites/Programmes, Wedding Ceremony Decorations and Stage setup, which looked fantastic on the day. She had plenty of options to choose from and also things that we hadn’t even thought of. Sunita also provided excellent contacts for all other wedding related needs, which were SO beneficial in making the entire process easy.
We want to thank Sunita in not only helping create a truly memorable wedding day, but also in making the entire journey so much fun and stress free. I strongly recommend Milan Events to anyone keen on holding wedding functions! Thanks for everything.
Anukool & Manali Sathu – January 2014
I’d just like to say how extremely impressed I was with Sunita’s efforts in decorating the venue for our engagement party. We were absolutely blown away and so were our guests. Sunita was very patient with me and my particular needs which were to match the decorations to my favourite shade of blue, Tiffany Blue. She exceeded my expectations beyond my imagination and I am so glad I chose to use her services for one of the most special events in my life. We will most definitely be using her amazing services for our wedding. All in all we would like to thank you Sunita, and your wonderful team for making our engagement party one to remember! Thank you and we look forward to working with you again soon.
Natasha and Dennis – Engagement Party October 2013
We approached Sunita three months prior to our wedding with absolutely no clue on how to arrange everything. Sunita made our lives a lot easier by providing us with a variety of options which suited our taste. When we arrived at the venue on the wedding day, we were amazed by Sunita’s decoration skills. Everything was just perfect! Thank You for all your support Sunita!
Gagan and Donna – Wedding Reception September 2013
Sunita was wonderful. We came to her last minute (literally 3 weeks before) with our decoration inquires for my engagement party and she left no stone unturned for this event. Everything was perfect and suited according to the theme and our tastes. Guests loved how well our event was organized and part of it is thanks to Sunita as she added sparkle to the event with the decorations. She is also very helpful with other queries you have. Really glad to have chosen her for my event. Thanks a lot Sunita.
Kajal & Smit – Engagement Party July 2013
We wish to appreciate the efforts taken by Sunita of Milan Events in decorating the Mandap on the occasion of our daughter’s marriage on 12th May, 2013. She has coordinated with our daughter and her partner and decorated the mandap to utmost satisfaction of our daughter for the big day.
I would recommend her to anyone who is planning an event or celebration. She is a wonderful person to deal with and we have no hesitation to give her full credit for the job done.
Shobha & Satish Pendem – Wedding date – 12 May 2013
Sunita was the epic centre of everything wedding related for us! We were quite time constrained with the planning process as we had only four months to plan our wedding and reception. The first time we met her – we had no idea what we had gotten ourselves into.
She did an excellent job at taking us through the whole process and making sure we knew exactly what was involved. She helped us with everything from the wedding cards to mandap, DJ, cake and car hire. Her extensive lists of contacts were absolutely professional and gave us competitive quotes. Despite numerous phone calls and visits from us she remained patient and flexible with our requests and change of ideas. Both the locations were decorated exquisitely as per our requests. And the end result on the wedding day spoke for itself! We received great accolades from everyone who attended.
If you are looking for an absolute professional, bubbly, creative and an all in one package – then Sunita is the one for all your wedding needs! Thank You Sunita for all your help and support!
Karishma & Aseem Agarwal – Wedding date 27 April 2013
Sunita of Milan Events did a superb job for my son’s wedding reception. I gave her a very small budget and she managed to make the place look lovely within that.
Sunita not only worked to our plan but went beyond that. She added her own extra touches to the venue entrance which just made the event more special. She was there with her staff at the end, late at night, to clear up as well.
Thank you Sunita for respecting our budget constraints and still giving your all to make the reception so special.
Sushma Bhatt – Wedding date 6 March 2013
Sunita helped with all of our arrangements for our Hindu ceremony including Mandap set-up and selection of a Panditji. In addition to this Sunita also organized bride groom transport, a DJ, a videographer and some wedding stationary. All these arrangements were absolutely excellent. Sunita pays a lot of attention to detail and was also very prompt with following things up with us or contractors.
The Mandap was as we imagined it and the DJ was fantastic and we would highly recommend him! The panditji was very interactive and all of our guests commented on how well he ran the ceremony. The videographers were extremely professional and we are looking forward to reviewing their work shortly.
Overall we would highly recommend Sunita and her wedding services based on our experience.
Kunal & Nicole Bhargava – Wedding date 22 February 2013
Sunita tailored our fusion wedding to perfection. She put us at ease from the minute we met and was patient, reliable and professional throughout the 12 months that she helped us organise our wedding. Sunita was a big help in guiding us to make decisions as well as listening to our ideas. She put us in touch with everyone from the saxophonist to the photographer; with such a wide network of people her organisation was impeccable. All these services proved to be very professional and of a high standard.
The decorations for both – the Mandap Ceremony Room and the Reception were perfect. We were both delighted with the way the rooms looked, there was obviously a lot of attention to detail and we received only positive feedback from our guests. The whole experience was smooth and reassuring and saved us a lot of time and stress with having her coordinate everything. Thank you Milan Events.
Sid & Anneka Trivedi – Wedding Date 16 Feb 2013
A big thank you to Sunita for making the process so easy and being soo helpful. I loved that you were not pushy and trying to get us to hire extra things. You worked on our vision of what we wanted and tried to find things that would fit in with our theme.
Thank you sooo much again – you were lovely to deal with.
Shallu Googan – Dated 06 Jan 2013
I am so thankful to Sunita from Milan Events for her impressive service. She was so understanding and amazing at working out the deal that works out perfectly for me financially and to make my dream wedding come true.
The quality of the work was at high standard, I couldn’t have asked for better. The final set up was simply stunning. It was made large enough for the venue I chose and Sunita worked so hard to make arrangements more perfect than I would ask for.
She was always there, very easy to contact, very easy to communicate with, very quick with responses and very professional in her service. Working with Sunita made the wedding planning enjoyable to my surprise! I couldn’t be a happier bride, Sunita worked hard to make sure everything went super well, and it did.
She was there in the last minute too to make arrangements gorgeous and I felt so much better knowing that I could rely on the work. Thank you so much for making my dream wedding come true!
Woroud Alzaher – Dated 04 January 2013. Wedding Date – 20 December 2012, Auckland
Sunita (a.k.a an angel in disguise) made my life unbelievably comfortable and stress free during my wedding. I am known for being super organised so I approached Sunita 1 year before the wedding – when I didn’t have a confirmed date or venue for my special day.
Sunita worked with me from the beginning ensuring every aspect of the wedding was looked after. Details ranging from the colour coordination in our marquee to the health and safety of having candles around our younger guests. My vision was transformed into reality as I walked hand in hand with my husband into the marquee for my wedding reception.
The tables, chairs, photo corner and bridal table looked stunning. Sunita had somehow managed to put everything together all whilst giving it a unique flavour which described Neelesh and I perfectly – Traditional yet simply elegant. Its been just over a month since the wedding and my guests are still raving about how amazing my marquee looked.
I cannot thank you enough Sunita, you have been nothing short of amazing!
With lots of love, Dipti & Neelesh – December 2012
It was my first time organizing such a big event and I am very happy I came across Milan Events.
Sunita was the most reliable person that I worked with throughout planning and execution for my 21st. Her knowledge, experience and organizational skills are flawless and her colour coordination and layout knowledge is vast.
She kept in regular communication which assured me that I was in fact in the best of hands and she is so easy to work with and talk to as well as having reasonable prices. Her work and service was of a high standard and I would not hesitate to call her and recommend her for further functions.
Thank you Sunita and Milan Events for creating a fairytale 21st and making my night amazing, carefree and stressfree.
Hayshal Prasaad – 7th July 2012
It was my first experience organizing my son’s Mehendi Raat. I wanted the hall to be decorated in the best possible way. I wanted someone who could do the job to my satisfaction & at the same time rates were reasonable.
I rang up a couple of event managers in Auckland & somehow picked on Milan events. After meeting Sunita I knew I had made the right choice. She was very professional & responsible & I was assured that I didn’t have to bother on this front now; she took the load off me.
The hall for the Mehendi Raat was decorated to my liking, I had lot of people from overseas & they all appreciated the decorations. She was very punctual, meticulous, artistic & innovative, the hall looked perfect.
We had the wedding at Dunedin and the reception was after a month in Auckland.
For the reception, I just rang up Sunita, told her the venue & left the rest on her. When I went for the reception I was amazed to see the decorations, it was just gorgeous. Most of my guests were the same people & they all gave the same feedback that it was even better than the last one & completely different. My son and his bride were very glad with the decorations.
Basanti Sathu – 6th May 2012
Sunita from Milan Events is great to work with. I contacted Sunita to organize decorations for my wedding reception venue and I think the service she provides is outstanding.
Though I only asked her for the hall decor, Sunita offered me with a lot of advice on various other aspects of the wedding such as contacts for a makeup artist and card printing too. Sunita also went an extra mile to make sure that everything went off hassle free and I would highly recommend her work to anyone looking for a beautifully decorated venue along with a person who looks out for what you want for your occasion.
From Mridula & Abhinabh Duffadar – Auckland – 27 March 2012
This gives us great pleasure to write about Milan Events. Don’t want to write reams of pages but wanna be short n sweet. So MILAN stand for:
It was a great pleasure to work with you during our son’s wedding reception on 20 Nov. 2011. The invitees, including Indian Diaspora from Auckland, Kiwis and Polynesian friends, colleagues and guests from Canada, Australia and India had just one word to say about your decorations and settings”WOW”. Our best wishes for all you future assignments. With kind regards,
Raj n Nimi Bedi – 20 November 2011
Thank you Milan Events for an awesome service. Your instant response from the beginning to answer my enquiries made my decision to go ahead use your services. Thank you for being flexible enough to meet with me even when it did not suit you. Thank you for changing your plans to suit my busy schedule on the day before my wedding.
You did awesome!!!! I sent you a picture of what I wanted from your florist and what you delivered on the night was far better than the picture that I had sent you. Thank you for your fast efficient service. My husband and I really appreciate it and will definitely recommend your business to my friends who are getting married soon.
Salote Yabakivou – September 2011
Pratik and I were very happy with the standard of professionalism displayed by Milan Events in responsibly setting up the hall for our wedding on 10th July 2011. Sunita was a pleasure to work with during the planning phase. She was able to meet our every demand and went over and beyond our expectations. We thoroughly appreciate the effort put in by her and her team. Her choice of contractors shows how knowledgeable she is in this sector. We would highly recommend her services to our friends and family. Best wishes to Milan Events and Thank You again.
Pratik & Niyati Bhatt – Wedding 10 July 2011
Sunita is a meticulous Event Manager driven indisputably by passion. Unlike a 9-to-5 job, Sunita will take on the job of event-managing an occasion as though it were her own. She is thorough, timely and highly organized thus assuring quality in her tasks from start to finish. She is a professional yet one who establishes good working relationships and ‘fits in’ with ease… guests at the occasion will likely mistake her to be family.
The only regret I have is not to have delegated more of my responsibilities onto her so that I could have sat back, relaxed and enjoyed my daughter’s wedding further, knowing that my tasks were in good hands.
Jaya Venugopalan – February 2011
Sunita from Milan events made the reception held at Alexandra Park very good looking with her decoration skills. I reccommend Milan events very strongly for the future.
Manjit Singh Batth – February 2011
Sunita went out her way to make our wedding a beautiful one. She listens to our needs and offer valuable advice. I can’t thank her enough for her support throughout our planning process. Her calm mannerism makes her very approachable.
Sofiah & Richard Van Nieuwkerk
I would like to thank you for making our evening so special. The decoration was very very beautiful. Every person who came in to the venue told us how beautiful the place looked.
To add to that, I’d like to say that you understood our needs very well. What I really liked was that, you let us do the talking and the outcome was exactly as to what we expected.
There was always a flow of communication and I didn’t need to worry about double checking anything with you as you are so efficient and always on top of everything. What I realised is that, i could leave everything to you, and sit back and relax. And that’s exactly what happened 🙂
The venue, looked elegant and royal. It was the cherry on top of the cake. I was very happy with the outcome. I loved, how you also gave your thoughts and ideas on the decoration and that made it give the venue more of a personal touch.
I would surely recommend Milan Events over any other decorator in Auckland. I look forward to working with you again. It was a pleasure working with you.
Ritika – December 2010
If i just can reiterate how impressed we are with your work and professionalism. The decor was stunning and we’ve had such great feedback from our guests too.
The one thing that both Ritika and I agreed upon was that out of all the professionals we spoke to and involved in our engagement, you (and Yash) were by far the most professional. And I use that term in all it’s meaning. You gave us exactly what we wanted, and how we wanted it! From our very first meeting you put us at ease, and your commitment to our event (such as coming all the way to Blockhouse Bay for a short meeting) was evident right from the start.
The simple yet elegant decor for the engagement was what created the ambience for our event, and it reflected our own taste. The main stage was very impressive, and we’ve had such great feedback from the guests too! What we also wanted to recognise was the short time frame in which you delievered everything. I’m so glad we found the Panic Button on your website! It is yet another testament to your professionalism and passion for what you do.
We are so impressed by your work, and we will most definitely be recommending you to friends and family!
Akshat – December 2010
By magnifying the simple pleasures of the occasion and managing the big to-do lists, with her expertise, attention to detail, organisation and ever cheerful demeanor, Sunita of Milan Weddings really made our wedding day a happy and memorable celebration – just what a wedding is meant to be!
Amrita & Abhinav – June 2010
