About Us

The Birth

The idea of Brides Central was born out of a colourful fusion of frustration when former Corporate Event planner Katrina Skebes found herself planning her own ‘big fat Greek wedding’. Struggling to find unique inspiration, creative suppliers, useful planning tools or even transparency on pricing, Katrina decided it was time for a better way.

The Vision

Thrusting aside the pile of wedding magazines, post-it notes, printed out spreadsheets and pulled-out hair scattered around her, she got to work developing Brides Central.

The vision to create a Wedding Inspiration destination built with simplicity and filled with unique ideas offering the most effective planning & budgeting tools for Brides across Australia.

Brides Central

With a growing creative community, eager to find their own special sprinkle of “wow factor” for the most memorable day of their lives, Australian brides started to follow.

With a team of creative designers, web developers, marketing geniuses and social media experts, Brides Central is finally here to turn the Zillas into Chillas and help Australian Brides plan, save and create their perfect wedding day.

The Mission

Finding true love, unconditional love and to grow with love, was the fairy tale behind the planning.

A Directory that works with Brides and fits into their plans, by budget, location, theme and is the perfect fit for their perfect love story.

Keep coming back, stay longer and join our family to grow with us, sharing new ideas and tools and bringing back the tips and tricks other brides have learned and listening to.
