Testimonials From Clients
Jess did such an amazing job helping us organise our small ceremony in about a month. We even changed our plan a little bit closer to the date and she worked with us to make sure everything was just as we wanted it. It was such a pleasure working with Jess and the way she decorated the room for our ceremony was even better than we could have imagined. Absolutely would recommend Jess for the perfect wedding!!
Rance & Ola Elopement
The perfect simple and elegant wedding in a great location. Hilary made the whole process from start to finish the most relaxed and stress free experience. It was everything that we wanted for our day. From Hilary doing the ceremony to styling by Jess and the photos by V we can not fault them. We can not thank Hilary and the team enough for making our special day an unforgettable experience.
Thanks Jess (Elope To Ningaloo)
We couldn’t be happier with how our wedding turned out. Hilary and the team went to great lengths before, during and after our wedding to ensure we had such an amazing day and beautiful memories that will last a lifetime. Hilary made it so stress-free to organise our day from a distance and really went to great lengths to understand and plan just what we wanted for our special day. We cannot say thank you enough and were so blessed to have such a kind-hearted, professional and smiling celebrant for our ceremony.

Kat and Mick (Elope To Ningaloo)
Without having been to Mantarays Resort prior to our wedding, i was unable to visualise how our ceremony and reception would look. But Jess took the stress out of it all and made everything look absolutely perfect for us. So thanks again Jess
Chantelle & James
Jess was absolutely brilliant! Thank you so much for creating such a perfect setting for our wedding ceremony and reception. It was so easy for me, jess handled all of the styling and setting up and it was perfect, exactly what we wanted. I would highly recommend Jess for your wedding function, I don’t think we could have pulled off such a spectacular wedding without your help. Thank you for everything
Casey & Dylan
"How can we explain perfect? We gave Elope to Ningaloo just six weeks notice to create the perfect ceremony and put all of our trust in a team of people that we had never met. Everything was stunning, easy, and simply perfect. Everybody went above and beyond anything we could have imagined.
The relaxed stying, unobtrusive photography and videography, delicious platter, and of course the stunning sunset over the Exmouth Gulf just made for the most amazing setting. Thank you Elope to Ningaloo, we really don't know how our wedding could have been any better."
We are missing Exmouth so much. We really felt at home, and that we met lovely people with whom we could be friends.
Natalie & Matt (ElopeTo Ningaloo)
Thank you so much to Jess for all her help leading up to my proposal to my girlfriend. Jess was incredibly helpful and kind speaking to me before the proposal. The memorable moments package that i bought was set up when i booked in, and was beautifully presented by Jess and the cheese platter and the champagne that came with it were delicious.I even had some trouble with the weather on the night that i was originally planning on booking it and Jess had no issues with changing it to another day providing excellent customer service and flexibility.
Thank you so much Jess, it was definitely a memorable moment :)
We wish to express our gratitude to you and your team you helped in making our day perfect for us and our guests with your unique and excellent service and style.
Thank you very much

Pierre and Ulrica
We can't thank Jess and her team enough for their amazing work for our wedding, they gave our simple intimate ceremony beauty while battling with the wind at Jacobsz beach and then worked wonders with transforming the Potshot (pool bar) into a beautiful rustic oasis and setting up the most spectacular sweets buffet I have ever seen! We couldn't have asked for a more impressive set up to top off our epic day. We can't wait to see the photos and actually take in all the beauty you created. Xxx
Jo & Tai

Tayla & Daniel
We wanted a say a big thank-you to you for making our wedding day so special!
It is our great pleasure to write this testimonial. We are incredibly grateful for all the help Jess gave us in the lead up to our wedding, and on the day. Jess created a stunning ceremony set-up for our elopement at Turquoise Bay. She is a true artist. There were so many little styling touches that made us gush over the set-up; from the star fish on our bridal arch to the shells at our cake table and the antique cake knife. Our ceremony set-up was more glamorous and romantic than a magazine spread! We are also incredible thankful for all Jess’ help in planning our wedding. Jess knows everything worth knowing about having a wedding in Exmouth and was able to put us in touch with the best wedding suppliers. There were so many small details that Jess helped us with, such as picking up our cake and transporting it to the ceremony and then dropping it off at our hotel afterwards. She went above and beyond to help us, and it made the whole experience stress free and special. We are thrilled to recommend Jess to future bride and grooms. Thank-you again Jess for making our wedding day so memorable and beautiful!
Elaine and Bob xxx

Kate & Jon
This lady is worth her weight in gold... Jess you made the back drop of turquoise bay even better than its natural beauty & the reception at the Novotel was gorgeous.. But where you go above and beyond is your knowledge, advice & friendship.. We could not of pull this off without you..
Tanya & Chris
We can highly recommend Jess to others who want a headache free wedding celebration as she would take care of everything! Communication was great and everything was the way we wanted it! She takes the arrangements so serious and treats it like it would be her own wedding and we very much appreciated that! ❤️
Nadja & Rajiv
We don't have enough words to thank you Jess, and your team for the absolutely outstanding effort you all put into making our wedding the most amazing day ever. Your professionalism all the way through the planning phase put our minds at ease that we were in good hands for our destination wedding. Our beach Ceremony set up was perfect and exactly as we had imagined. The bouquets you made were beautiful and nothing was too hard. You took all the stress out of the reception set up and when we entered the room we were blown away by the beauty you had created. Thank you for helping us make memories we will cherish forever
Cara & Chris xx
On Sunday the 14th of August 2016 Jess Ogden-Barry and her crew from Salt and Sand made my wedding day an amazing and memorable day. She was the backbone through organizing my wedding and really was a whole lot more than just event hire. Jess was there when Jim needed someone to fix his button hole, when I needed someone to tell me when to walk down the isle and turned my house into an intimate garden wedding every bride would dream of. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Jess, you were more than we ever deserved and you will always be a friend to us. Xxx
Annabelle & Jim
We are beyond grateful for Jess and her team at Salt & Sand. Jess constantly went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we wanted on our wedding day. Always a step ahead knowing what we needed and when. I would have been a bridezilla if I didn't have this amazing team there on my most special day! Thank you so much Salt & Sand for making every detail count!! If you're planning a wedding in Exmouth you MUST have Salt & Sand on your team!!
Kira & Dustin
I can not Thankyou enough Jess! You made our special day so easy and stress free. The day was amazing and could not of gone so smooth for us if u weren't there! Your a true gem and awesome at what you do. I will be recommending you to anyone looking at having there wedding as I was so happy with your service and that you had everything set up even better than what I had envisioned! I did not see u much on the day but my husband and my wedding guest's said you were awesome to deal with and were so accommodating with any questions they had which was lovely to hear also xx
Sara & Luke
Jess, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did for our big day. Not only did you execute my vision to perfection, but you made a potentially stressful day so much easier with your local knowledge, support and flexibly. Planning a destination wedding is by no means easy; then add in some heavy rains, flood warnings, closure of the national park, last minute venue changes and 80 guests to co-ordinate, knowing I had you on my side was such a relief and I don’t know what I would have done without you! I cannot recommend you highly enough, so thank you again!
Milinda & Rhys
Jess, you brought our dreams and visions of the perfect wedding to life. You definitely have an eye for style and everything looked better than we could of imagined. Despite the last minute stress over the weather, we could not of had a better day and it all looked stunning. Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful ceremony and reception! We can't wait to see it all over again when we look through our photos xxx
Callie & Jamie
Jess was an absolute pleasure to work with to style our wedding. The styling was perfect and her attention to detail was outstanding. On the day Jess even organised some shade and umbrellas with my husband as it was going to be a hot day. Her going above and beyond is what helped make our day truly special! Thanks again Jess :)
Tim and Toya

I just wanted to say thank you so much for making Neil and Serena’s wedding such a success. You have beautiful taste and we couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful set-up on the beach. It was like a movie star wedding. Your willingness to go above and beyond was very much appreciated. It was so nice to see your smiling face even when the work you were doing was hot and labour intensive. It is a credit to you and your team.

I would like to say an enormous thank you to Jess! It was an absolute pleasure working with Jess to establish our perfect day, she had so many fabulous suggestions and ideas which resulted in literally the perfect day. It's been over a month since we were married on 20th September 2014 and our guests are still talking about it! The attention to detail for both the Ceremony and Reception was exquisite! We married on Sunrise beach out the front of the Novotel and had the reception at Lily Pond Terrace. Jess took control on the day of the wedding which allowed us to relax and soak up every moment. If you are planning a wedding, Jess is your woman, we 100% recommend her! Thanks Jess and Salt and Sand Team, you're amazing! x x x p.s. I want to do it again!

Thank you so much Jess and team for helping to create such an amazing day for us! We couldn't have done it without you!!
The ceremony set-up at the beach was absolutely beautiful, and the romantic space you created at Whalers Restaurant for our reception looked amazing.
You have looked after us so well; from when we changed our wedding date with a day's notice due to the cyclone, our venue change, even organising our bouquets for us. Nothing was ever too hard, you made it easy for us!

You made it all look so incredible! You have such a beautiful range of items to choose from that it we knew it was going to look good - we just didn't realise it was going to look so spectacular.
