Yours Truly

Founder | Designer | Planner

Cate O'Connor Owner of Dancing & Dessert

Born from a wild tangle of artists

Cate has been in the business of creating since birth. She has a wild and curious spirit, an occasionally inappropriate sense of humour, and a very big heart. She packs the stylistic punch and takes pride in being the trend, not following. 

Honed by the elite

It all began in the big apple. Calling New York City home for over four years had her surrounded and working with the best in the world.

 Firefly Events (named one of the top planners by Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, and Martha Stewart), Jose Rolon Events and Bash Please.

She has taken the knowledge garnered from these mentors and shipped it express across the world to Melbourne.

Mingles with the best 

Melbourne is home, though she travels far and wide for her craft. She loves her vendor family, carefully curating the creme-de-la-creme of the wedding world and always on the look out to collaborate with hardworking, creative, and loving souls to perfect the day of your dreams.

Her job is to articulate exactly what it is you want and need, and seamlessly execute the best damn party you'll ever attend!
