Hey! Im Charley Bryant, owner and event planner for Above & Beyond. Let me tell you a little more about myself…

I’m someone with a huge zest for life. I have 2 young children who I absolutely adore, I’m originally from the UK but have spent the last 10 years making Australia my home and being in awe at the beautiful place I now get to live.

I’ve travelled and seen so many different parts, that I feel truly blessed. I drink way too much coffee, I have a massive enjoyment for all cakes-and well, food in general, I love the outdoors, and I’m a pro at dad jokes. I always feel the cold, and I absolutely LOVE a party.

After working in disability support for the last 4 years, and building a strong network in the community, I decided this year to give back in as many ways as I could, and so I threw a valentines disability dinner dance for the disabled community, with all profits to go to charity. It was a massive success with not only over 70 people attending to enjoy the night, but over $300 was raised for the rural NSW firefighters. This ignited the spark in me to turn this passion into something more, and after a little bit of positive self talk- I launched Above and Beyond.
For me Above & Beyond Event Planning isn’t just an event planning business. It’s so much more than that. It’s the beginning of a friendship, a connection of visions and passion to achieve something that creates happiness, laughter, fun and joy. And if life isn’t about having more of those 4 attributes, what is it about?

I love helping people, it was what I was put on this planet to do, and I’m learning that ‘helping people’ comes in many different forms.

I believe that my friendly, fun loving and positive personality enables me to interact and communicate effectively with anyone, and truly turn dreams into reality. So contact me today, and let me go above and beyond, to add a little sparkle to your event.
