'I would be very happy to recommend Paige and her team from Elite to anyone looking for a professional company to add pizazz to their event. From initial discussions around concepts, some added in ideas and then through to getting the job done on the day; I found Paige to be outstanding. Efficient, creative and professional – thanks Paige.

'Thanks for all your help last week – it was a great success, and your hot dog, popcorn and candy floss machine fitted perfectly with our French market theme. Your staff were great, and you made the whole process so easy. Thanks'
Sarah McLennan - Marketing Communication Co-ordinator
'My warmest thanks to all of you for your stellar effort towards our PwC Midwinter Ball held this past Saturday night. There has been a lot of positive feedback both during and following the event, which goes a long way towards recognising your particular part to play in bringing it to fruition. From theming to technical, centrestage to centrepieces, design to delivery, you have helped play a key part in what has been referred to by executives here as a 'spectacular event'. Please take the time to pass on my best to all of your team. Here's to the next one!'

'I have never been blown away by customer service & professionalism until I encountered Elite. My wedding was quickly turning into a disaster until I came across them. They turned a stressful situation into a pleasant one, putting me at ease, were super helpful and friendly. I would recommend them over ANYONE in the business and will use for all future events. Thank you Elite for going above and beyond - it made all the difference.'
'Thank you soo much to Paige and Elite for all your help with our wedding!! We were married in Tauranga and planned the whole thing internationally via email. Paige really made the whole process easy and stress-free. She was extremely quick at replying to all my many emails and gave great advice when it was needed. She was also great at checking in to make sure everything was ok. We did a candy buffet, all our chair covers/sashes and various decorations through Elite nd WOW am I glad we did!! Everyone is still raving about the candy buffet!!! I would 110% recommended Elite Parties & Events to anyone looking at getting married!!! Thanks for everything!'

Thank YOU so much! The room and pre-function area looked amaaazing, your team went above and beyond. We have had so much good feedback from our survey (happy to share the comments with you if you’d like?), and we’d be more than happy to give a testimonial.
Will definitely recommend you where possible, and hopefully get to use Elite again in the future!
